Second up in 3-for-Wednesday Reader Shout-Outs: Alison spotted these vintage flooring remnants — and more if you click through — for sale at a local salvage place. Aren’t the colors fabulous?
Be cognizant, readers, that old flooring can contain asbestos; I advise consulting with a pro, and I also have links to the EPA site on the top of Fast & Easy pages, Galleries and in other spots. Alison says she tested the floors in her house when they moved in — way to go, A.
Regarding this flooring find, she writes:
I was at my local architectural salvage shop (Earthwise in Seattle) and they had rolls of about 5 different types of vintage 60s sheet vinyl. Not a lot of each, but they *definitely* need to find a loving home. Best part? They’re about $2 per roll (the rolls don’t have much, but enough to do a small bathroom, etc. I took some pics, so let me know if you’d like me to pass them onto you.
Many thanks, Alison! Great retro recon. Carry those cameras or camera-phones, readers!
