Welcome! Our goal with Dead People's Stuff is the idea of traveling all across the glob in search of all kinds of interesting artifacts. We see our store as a place where interior designers, builders and everyday clients feel inspired by theses structural antiques that are being salvaged from historic buildings, while also blending a unique modern design to accommodate to all different types of projects.
Our latest buying trip was to India where we were able to acquire handmade organic rugs of all shapes and sizes made in the state of Kashmir a mountain region in India. We are also currently working on putting together a shipping container full of unique artifacts from England and around Europe that include anywhere from industrial lights, doors, windows, etc.
We will also be sharing the transformation of our 1940's building which was once home to the Caterpillar (CAT) business. Besides DPS we are currently also working on renovating it and bringing a modern industrial updated look while keeping a lot of the original art deco features and character of the building.
Our goal for this property is to be a one stop shop for creating a unique experience for okies and travelers alike. With DPS occupying 20,000 sq ft we see opportunities for the east warehouse to be either a restaurant, brewery, coffee shop, bar/tasting room, event center combination all in one. Also, we enjoy the idea of shared office working environment for builders, interior decorators and designers. On the opposite west size of the building we would also love to have skilled welders, carpenters and artist in a similar shared collaborative working environment. The dream for 1900 Linwood is to have as many partnering ventures and different vendors under one roof as possible.
Currently, we have been working on adding new windows all around the building bringing in tons of natural lighting. We are polishing the original terrazzo floors, exposing the original brick, LED lighting all around the building and much more to come.
We hope you all come visit us soon, we are open while the building is being renovated but we are enthusiastically working towards our re grand opening next spring 2019. An extensive remodel is underway and new inventory from the UK, India and Europe as well as domestically is already arriving so follow us on social media and we will keep you updated on all the fun.
