Plan to join us for this unique program with old house guru Rudy Rzeznikiewicz. Get a taste of why just about everybody who owns—or would like to own—an antique house or barn goes prospecting at the nationally renowned Brooklyn Restoration Supply, the business owned and operated by Rudy and his son, Kevin. 

As a purveyor of 18th and 19th century architectural materials, Rudy will display and discuss a number of objects from the 1700s, some considered everyday essentials and others extravagant luxuries.  He will discuss the fabrication and functionality of the items, as well as conducting a question and answer session. This is a great opportunity for old house enthusiasts to meet someone having nationwide acclaim for the quality of his merchandise, so you don’t want to miss the one-time presentation.
