Ornamental wire fencing in CA

Greetings all. I'm looking to use old-fashioned double loop wire fence in the front yard of my 1920's house (not a bungalow, but kind of a mini-tudor cottage). I've read all the threads on ornamental single and double loop wire fencing and ordered 2 foot high looped wire fencing in a 100' roll from Michael's Fences in WY.

I need one 8-10' piece of 36" or 48" ornamental wire (double or single loop, old or new) to use as a trellis. Is there anybody in CA that would be willing to sell me just the 10'? I'd even pay for your old, rusty wire fencing--and I'll come take it down! I've called the distributors and manufacturers of the wire, who in turn gave me the hardware supply houses in CA. NONE of them sell the wire to any hardware stores near by. It's a special order item--but I do not want 100' at $150 plus shipping.

If you've seen the wire at one of your local hardware, garden or feed stores, could you please let me know? We travel all over the state, but can also mail order it. If you have any you want to get rid of, please let me know. Thanks, Kristine

Placer Farm Supply in Newcastle (right below Auburn) has it in rolls. I don't know if they sell it in less than a roll but a call would sure be easy. Thier nubmer is 916-663-3741.

I can look and see if I have any left...I know I had a small piece left but I am thinking it is like 3-4 ft.

When I found Placer, it was through a company in Colorado that wholesales it, and they gave me the number of retail places that carry it and Placer was closest to me. If necessary I might be able to find that CO company again.

Great idea! My old timey fence is buried under awful ivy (I rent and can't clear neighbor is nosey)

Lincoln Avenue Lumber in Pasadena might be able to help you. They've been around since the early 1900s!

This company's fences are found all over my area.
Maybe they can help?

Freecycle? Craigslist? Salvage place?

grnchillipepper, where are you? fencing contractors are usually very local to a particular area.

RE: Ornamental wire fencing in CA

I have 7 rolls of the ornamental single loop fence available. It is new (never used) and is perfect for the victorian, cottage or farmhouse yard, garden, pet area etc. I love it, but decided my yard is just too big to fence in, so I used it for just my pet area. It is VERY VERY hard to find I know since I looked for it for over a year before I found it. I'll be sad to let it go, but would love for someone to use it as I originally intended. My loss is certianly someone's gain. This fence is selling for nearly $300 a roll (+ shipping) and I've seen it for $475.00 per roll just today. This is the 48" fence and is 100 foot rolls . I'm selling all 7 rolls for just $1200.00 (local pickup OHIO only- due to its weight which is nearly 122 lbs each roll)
