Salvage Dawgs & Grandpa’s Cheesebarn

My last post was about Lehman’s Hardware. Allow me to mention two of the other spots we visited on our short road trip. On the way to Ohio we took a slight detour to Roanoke, Virginia to explore Black Dog Salvage.

Some of you may be familiar with the HGTV show “Salvage Dawgs.” I rarely watch television so have never seen it, but Faye had seen a few of the episodes. It was indeed fun to see the salvaged items available for historic restoration, decor or just plain interest.

Do you need a couple of wharf bollards or cleats to moor your ship to your dock? There are plenty to choose from.

There really is a black dog roaming the premises.

I forget the exact price, but how would you like these super comfortable aviator chairs for over $1,000… EACH.

I was pretty impressed with this industrial metal bar…

It only sells for $2,295.00.

Then I saw this old hotel bar and back bar with hand crank bar stools. Do you think this would fit in your basement rec room?

You can have it for just $24,500.00.

How about a shuffleboard setup to go with the bar?

Those raw slabs of black walnut weren’t cheap… but the cutting boards were very reasonable.

There were a couple of cheese places we wanted to visit in Ohio but our GPS (SATNAV) would only direct us to one: Grandpa’s Cheesebarn.

I was hoping to see a place where cheese was actually produced, but this was obviously just a cheese outlet.

They did have some locally produced cheese.

Some of you would might like to indulge in this…

I didn’t cut the cheese at Grandpa’s Cheesebarn, but I will share a secret: Relatively safe places to do it in the grocery store are the dog food aisle, the coffee aisle and possibly the cheese aisle.

  1. Very funny – Gary is still laughing. You’ve hit on a fave of his! ;-> Actually, he is about to cut the . . . . bread. I took out two loaves of sourdough a couple of hours ago.

    Virtual hugs,
