I'm looking for a good selection of quality, "period" or retro-looking
cabinet handles, either a local store, catalogue or website. I've seen what
they have at Restoration, but wasn't satisfied. Does anyone have any
An excellent resource in Berkeley is Ohmega Salvage on San Pablo;
they sell interesting architectural/finishing elements from salvaged buildings
among other sources. Check out the yellow pages listings under "Salvage
Merchandise" for similar businesses. Also, a wonderful mail order catalog
is Renovator's. They sell all sorts of hardware, most of which is much more
interesting than your run-of-the-mill merchandise. I took a quick peek at
cabinet knobs and drawer pulls and they have a nice selection. A great mail
order catalog for you to obtain. Their number is 800-659-2211.
Yes! I know the place! Head for Bauerware in San Francisco. It's on 18th at
Noe, I believe, but it's also in the book. The whole store is cabinet
handles, and they have some great ones.
Really beautiful architectural hardware including doorknobs, weathervanes,
cabinet handles, more, can be found at E.M. Hundley in San Francisco:
617 Bryant Street 415-777-5050
