There are many things to look forward to when it comes to our Decorative Home & Salvage Shows - by far the most exciting thing is the stock

We're on the countdown to our first 'boutique' show of the year and social media is awash with networking; regular visitors are planning to meet up, first time visitors are arranging meeting points, traders are driving shared loads of fresh stock back from France, vans are being packed and, apart from the weather, the main topic of discussion is who will be selling what. Heavenly pictures are showing up on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and everyone is oohing and ahhing over the treasures soon to be laid out.
Chris Holmes Decorative Antiques (pictured below) never fails to amaze us with the beautiful pieces they brings to our shows. You can expect to see angels, urns, carved stone and beautiful art - all guaranteed to make you gasp.
Sugden & Daugters have been very active on Instagram showing us what they have sourced for Ripley - there seems to be a 'bust' theme (see below) running through their stock and we can't wait to see what else they have on offer.
Lucy Nugent of Lucy's Vintage Lifestyle is on her way back from France with a van loaded to the hilt with gorgeous French antiques. Look out for her stand, it always takes the prize for style and if you want original shutters (pictured below) or grand furniture then she's your girl.
Angelstores have been exciting us with their stock of linens, grain sacks, wire baskets, metal tables, gilt letters and Amish stars. Make sure you pay them a visit, their style is fresh, simple and very on-trend.
Grown by Design Brocante & Antiques (pictured below) are just back from a European buying trip and have shared this wonderfully homely collection with us.
The more stock images we see the more we can imagine just how beautiful this weekend's show is going to be. Excitement really is mounting.
Take a look at our full exhibitor list here, also visit this blog written by interior designer & renovator Sian of Moregeous - Sian's account of visiting one of our shows last year is a great read. Also look out for stylist and blogger Jane Day aka Tea with Ruby who is taking photos for a forthcoming feature in a very lovely magazine (all will be revealed!).
