Just ran across a book that might help. Steampunk: Gear, Gadgets, and Gizmos by Thomas Willeford. It has a chapter on the art of scavenging (antique, junk and flea markets), how to dissect a cuckoo clock for parts, and making a electro gun out of a lamp. Another reference source. Look at the book Textile Designs: Two Hundred Years of European and American Patterns Organized by Motif, Style, Color, Layout, and Period and http://www.reproductionfabrics.com/
