Sweet Salvage: We don't know how those junk fiends do it, but every third Thursday through Sunday of the month, the good folks at Sweet Salvage deliver a warehouse full of discarded treasures and functional flotsam to make scrap-savvy shoppers swoon. Despite the eclectic collection of antique school desks, mattress springs, and baking racks, all reclaimed retail is tied together with a monthly theme. And though sleeping on big purchases is usually a good a idea, at this popular pickers' spot, the early bird gets the worn-out leather wingback. (4648 N. 7th Ave., 602-279-2996, www.sweetsalvage.net)

Modern on Melrose: At first glance. Modern on Melrose appears to be more of a haven for well-polished vintage home furnishings than eye-catching industrials. But work your way to the back of the shop and you'll find an outdoor graveyard of vintage sign letters, iron gates and tables, as well as a miscellaneous shed of salvaged goods including desks, filing containers, and even medical equipment. (4610 N. 7th Ave., 602-264-4183, modernonmelrose@qwestoffice.net)
