Rare Jewels for the Home & Garden



Amassing a virtual Treasure Trove of Historic Building Supplies, Antique Hardware & Antique Furnishings has been the collecting & investing passion of David Michael for over 3 decades. We will be able to provide all of the necessary antique building supplies, hardware, and furnishings to build and decorate your entire Victorian Mansion.

We have salvaged Victorian Elements from Victorian homes and gardens, buildings, schools, churches, courthouses, and even the Mansions from Millionaires' Row in Cleveland, Ohio.  Additional pieces come from across the U.S., as well as many foreign countries.


       VICTORIAN ELEMENTS will be a unique Antiques Enterprise housed in the center building of our main complex. It is currently being transformed and outfitted to include a two story arcade/show place of 10 specialty storefront shoppes, each including a specialized selection of rare antiques assembled from the David Michael Collection.  A magnificent custom hand-cut stone walkway will link all of the first floor shoppes of Victorian Elements.  Each storefront will have rare historic mantels and chandeliers on display, or actually built into the storefront.

The elegant stone floored central lobby will serve as a showroom for a rotating display of fine period furniture, rare antique pianos and melodeons, and rare antique artifacts.

After passing through the large storefront showroom you will enter through an elaborate gated portico entryway, supported by fluted columns, having Corinthian capitals,  into an arcade reminiscent of European outdoor shoppes on both sides of a city street.  These specialty storefront shoppes will feature Fine period furniture and rare Antique pianos and melodeons, Antique Lighting, Victorian Plumbing, Victorian Fireplaces, Victorian Ornamental Decorations, Victorian Frames and Artwork, Victorian Gardens & Ornaments, a combination Antique Hardware, Antique Pharmacy and Antique General Store and an Historical Architectural Salvage Shoppe.
