Trip to “The Bank”

Since New Orleans has so many historic homes, we’re blessed with an inordinate number of incredible salvage yards.  One right around the corner from our house is called “The Bank” and no pun intended, we cashed in!  The place is chock full of renovation ideas and unmatched craftmanship.

To make the trip even more exciting, I asked the owner how much he wanted for a plaster architectural element and he handed it over for free.  Note to self…I love this place.
