If ever in need of an old claw foot tub, elevator cage (for a bed or a breakfast nook?), art deco fixtures or a carousel rooster, head to Antiques and Oddities Architectural Salvage at 2045 Broadway in KC. Owned by a couple of our schoolmates' parents, it's always packed to the brim with treasures. This is the first time we've been in and come out empty handed. (BTW, that elevator below from an old building in St. Louis is $4,500 - and absolutely incredible).
