25th September 2018
With summer now firmly behind us and autumn’s cooler mornings biting at our extremities, it’s time to say goodbye to another wonderful summer of salvage; five shows in as many months taking place across three counties over a total of 15 days. It takes a dedicated team and months of planning to get these shows on the road and it wouldn’t happen if we didn’t have such loyal support from our exhibitors and visitors, so thank you all for joining us.
It’s always a pleasure to welcome familiar faces and those dipping their does into the Decorative Home & Salvage Shows for the first time. It's also fantastic seeing the excellent stock and stand displays which get rolled out event after event - the effort made is appreciated by all.
As ever, the British weather kept us on our toes, with temperatures souring to record highs at the Loseley show in July and showers at the September Ripley show reminding us that die-hard home shoppers are never put off by a spot of rain!
It's been another year of seeing a trend in buying salvage for the home and garden, plus it's been noted that the passion for independent shopping, most especially pre-loved homewares, is very much on the up. This year, we've seen some great industrial and commercial pieces sitting alongside decorative antiques and pretty French furniture, and it never ceases to amaze us just how fantastic a mix there is at the shows - something for every taste, budget and project.
With the summer season now closed until 2019, we're ready to embrace our autumn and winter events, which really get going with the Lincoln Antiques & Home Show on October 8th & 9th and Stoneleigh Antique Market on October 15th.
We will shortly be releasing our 2019 dates so do keep a look out for these across our social media and as a downloadable calendar on our website.
See you soon!
