Butte CPR has salvage sales at different times of the year in different areas (often multiple locations on one day). Check the calendar for the current schedule and locations. Many locations are one-time only.

Remember, many items are one-of-a-kind or limited in quantity. Photos here are only representative.

Exciting Salvage Items

Clay parapet tiles - just part of the salvage Butte CPR has collected and sold

May 2012: about 125 clay parapet tiles, each 2 feet long, and about 9 inches wide (inside) - see photo. Taken from building with brick parapet, but use your imagination about how they might be reused.

Dec. 2011: CPR has 100+ windows salvaged from the School Administration Building. These windows are in good condition, have the float glass with flaws, intact hardware, and only painted on one side. Windows from the old school administration building. Most are probably about 3 to 4 feet long and about 3 feet wide. These photos show respresentative samples.

More windows from the old school administration building.

Donations Wanted

A reclaimed sink

Butte CPR will gladly take donations of architectural or "old building" items. We hope to redirect historic building materials that would otherwise end up in the trash to repairing structures in Butte. Although the best use of historic building material is the building it originally adorned, sometimes material comes available.

Sale of architectural items and building materials has been a major source of funds for Butte CPR activities, including our Historic Improvement Project Grants. Volunteers of the organization will gladly pickup, store, and make available for sale such items as:

Building material:
  • Trim, moldings, baseboards, beadboard, wood flooring (oak, maple, fir), wainscoting, paneling, etc.
  • Porch columns, gingerbread trim pieces
  • Doors, door casings, transom windows, windows, etc.
  • Door and window hardware
Plumbing fixtures (in good to excellent condition):
  • Bathtubs, sinks, toilets (old style and complete)
  • Historic plumbing hardware

Miscellaneous hardware
