Today, I stopped and visited with Andy and Julie Madget, owners of Madget Demolition, INC. My family has known the Madget family for 35 years or longer.
You never know what you might find in the "salvage" yard, there really is a little bit of everything. You might be trying to fix up a house, buy some bricks to build a patio, or you might want a piece of terra-cotta to stick in your garden somewhere...you never know what you may find.
MADGET DEMOLITION INC. is a third generation demolition companythat has been demolishing commercial, industrial & residential structures that have out-lived their purpose for the past fifty years! The business was bought in 1960 by the late Bob Madget and currently is run by his son Andrew. Andy's sons, Bobby & Tom now have joined their dad in the demolition business.
Besides the "demolition" part of the company, they have a "salvage yard" which is open to the public of used building materials for sale.
While on my adventure today, there were many unusual items that did not seem to belong in the "salvage yard". The early 1900's organ, seemed that it should belong in a church or parlor rather than at a demolition salvage yard, as it still played almost perfectly. The beautiful old stained glass windows seemed to be yearning for someone to display them in possibly a new construction home or displayed on a wall rather than at a demolition company's salvage yard.
Madget's has been at 2425 South 6th in St Josephfor over 50 years and are open Monday thru Friday from 8-4:30, and can be reached at (816) 232-6210, feel free to stop by and tell them you saw the blog on the Internet.
