Claycraft Brick Company kiln yard showing the large beehive kilns used to fire the bricks.

Finally the blue bricks that were salvaged from the demolition of the Kingsdale Lazarus building are available for sale to the general public.
The bricks were chosen by Robert Lazarus with the help of world reknowned Industrial designer, Richard Lowey. They were made by the Claycraft company and were part of their "Colorifics" line. There were several shades of blue mixed to give the Lazarus buildings a unique and modern look. While the bricks were used on other Lazarus buildings, only the bricks from the Kingsdale store were salvaged. Now they are ready for a place of honor in your memorabilia of good times in UA.
The sale will be held on Saturday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 pm. and the following Sunday, July 17, from noon to 4:00 p.m.
