It's showtime, well almost - just a couple of days and our Cheshire Decorative Home & Salvage Show will open. The exhibitor list is looking excellent and we are pleased to welcome back many regular exhibitors, as well as some new. Between the sixty or so stands at the show you'll find one-off things to help make a unique home or a special garden space.
The Old Yard really take salvage to another level, especially with these incredible sheds they have made out of reclaimed materials. Do stop by for a proper look, they are very impressive. You can also expect to find giant cold-frames, huge lights, gorgeous mirrors, stone statues and general curios.
For antique rugs and decorative wares for the home and wonderful stone pieces for the garden take a look at Carl Bird's wares. You can't miss his stand, it's always adorned with flowers, shells and items that catch the eye
Sugden & Daughters (daughters pictured above with Dad, Mark Sugden) always bring with them a wonderful mix of homewares - everything from dining tables and kitchenalia, to bathroom mirrors and classic signage.
Homeward sell brightly coloured retro items like picnic gear, baskets, boxes, enamelware, large tins, lamps, woolen blankets and satchels, along with larger items of furniture.
Gizmobots are always a great addition to the show and the individual charm and personality of each robot makes them extra special. Visit the stand to find out the unique story behind each character which has been made using salvaged items - you'll be drawn into their little robot world for sure.
French Vintage & Country are a staple at the shows and always bring with them an essential dash of continental chic. This is your stop for old Parisian shutters, delicate garden furniture, angel wings, decorative mirrors, chippy paint furniture and all manner of prettiness.
