I heart Eastlake

I really do.

P7150084, originally uploaded by Blair Necessities.

but it is a love hate thing... because there are quite a few we need to get to replace the ones that have been tossed away...

I find them so pretty, and they look even prettier when they are all cleaned up.

I suppose I should take an inventory of all the parts we need, or is it want... but looking at what these things are going for I could be tempted to say oh are there any good reproductions out there?

I think we are looking for about 10 of these here hinges...

For some reason I am assuming the door knobs are related and I would need 7 door knobs...

6 faceplates (though it might be good to have 7 one looks like it may be cracking)...

one round thing that I have no clue what it might have been since we just have an empty hole...

I wonder if I can task some people that live where there are more than the six old homes (only slight under exageration) to go looking for these for me.... anyone out there willing I will let you know exactly what I need...

help

Oh, and you may be interested in knowing I am operating on about 4 hours sleep that I did not even have the pleasure of having these occure all at once...

Great hinges. Ebay, of course, is a great source for this sort of thing. You are not going to find those exact hinges, nor will you find your exact doorknobs, but there is a lot of Eastlake door hardware to be had. Search for “door hardware” under the “Antiques” category.

Here are some other on-line sites
http://www.houseofantiquehardware.com/
http://www.eddonaldson.com/
http://restoredvintagehardware.com/

The last place can reproduce your stuff. I’m sure it’s crazy expensive.

I heart Eastlake also. We have a few interesting hinges and many interesting doorknobs. I've bought some Eastlake furniture, too, and I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Eastlake, mmmm.
