Where to sell a vintage kitchen copper range hood

Posted by MeekosMom (My Page) on

HI, I am not sure if I am in the best forum, let me know if I am not. I just remodeled my kitchen and am wondering what the heck to do with a very large vintage range hood. It's a big piece, so I don't want to throw it in the landfill-87"x24", black metal with copper accents. Do you think anyone would want something like that-it seems so random. And if it could be used, how would I go about letting people know I have it (I don't think this would be a hot item on Craiglist LOL!) There's so much remodeling going on here in Dallas-it's sickening to think of all the debris from tearing kitchens out.

Try Restore, of Habitat for Humanity, or Freecycle

Yes -- Habitat's Restore would be a good thing. There is one down here in the Houston area. It will have a limited market with that size, but it would be smashing in the right space. Hope it finds a good home.

Wow. Beautiful! Why are you taking it out, if I may ask?

I don't know if I can even ask this on here, but what sort of price are you wanting for it? You can email me the price. I am not sure if my email is in my personal information. If not, I will put it in there.

Thanks,
Shannon

I think it's stunning!

I would absolutely Craigslist it (we sold an entire kitchen we took out on Craigslist a few years back) and I would also put it on eBay - local pick up only.

Good luck - if we were at the beginning of the process and lived close to you I would buy it - it's such a statement piece!

Thanks for the ideas everyone! It'such an unusual piece, needs a big kitchen!

Deedles: We are totally changing the kitchen design to more a Traditional/touch of contemporary feel. The original kitchen was finally showing its age, and being empty nesters, wanted an "adult" kitchen. So we gutted and redesigned a large kitchen, laundry room and bar area. Two islands, lots of outlets for plugging in laptops, Flat Screen, and a trifold glass door leading out to the backyard patio. I will put up pictures soon, its almost done.

Lousiana Purchase: would be glad to email you and see if you have any ideas too! Hard to figure out a price.

Habitat store, I think there is one in DAllas.

Robenkitchen-great idea about Ebay and saying Local Pickup only, I didn't know that was an option. Makes sense. I'll try Craigslist too.

Garden Web was a huge resource for picking stuff out for the remodel. Everyone is so helpful and insightful.

I had two copper hoods and could not get anywhere near their value so I took out the guts and placed them upside down in my garden and used them for planters; they look great and people driving by often stop and comment about them. that black and copper one would really make a statement or it could be a room divider planter.

I live in a mid century modern home and just removed a built-in can opener and replaced it with two outlets and a light switch as that section of the counter had no outlets and no place to plug in appliances. the problem is that the wall is formica and I wondered if anyone can figure out what I can do to cover the hole around the outlet. no plate is large enough and just patching it would not work. I want to keep the formica for it is so mid century modern and want to retain the integrity of the home.

OT, you can buy covers that connect together at most HW stores. Or run a google search for the size you are looking for.
