Significant Elements is a program of Historic Ithaca launched in 1991 to promote the reuse of architectural elements when the demolition of a building cannot be otherwise prevented. We provide an avenue for the reuse of building materials, and promote repair, restoration and reuse instead of demolition.
We specialize in selling reclaimed solid wood doors, lighting, windows, clawfoot tubs, furniture, bath & kitchen sinks, wood moldings, flooring, wainscoting, columns, slate & ceramic tile, toilets, shutters, cabinetry, ornate hardware, furniture, garden elements, decorative items, and various other interesting odds and ends…
Our inventory is donated by community members, contractors, businesses and institutions. Significant Elements sales support all of Historic Ithaca’s programs, from preservation advocacy and education to job readiness training for young adults.
