WANTED! DESIGNERS THAT RE-USE MATERIALS

SalvoFAIR 27 - 29 June 2008, Knebworth House Hertfordshire

Salvo are inviting designers with inspired creations that have been made by re-using materials, or are environmentally friendly in some way, to exhibit and sell at the Salvo Fair, in a new enclave.

For the last two years, Gini Coates, from London, has been at the Salvo Fair selling her upholstered storage boxes, that double-up as little seats, made from fruit crates and vintage fabrics.

The Salvo Fair is a three day outdoor event held in the deer park at Hertfordshire’s Knebworth House. Traditionally the fair is based around about fifty dealers from all over the country, with five hundred tonnes of architectural salvage and reclaimed building materials exhibited for sale. More recently the fair has begun to incorporate craftspeople from parallel fields.

For prices and information, please call Colleen on 020 8400 6222 or email colleen@salvoweb.com
