SALVO 2008: Fri 27th June (Trade Day), Sat 28 and Sun 29 June, Knebworth, Hertfordshire UK

New! Reuse Design Enclave

This year’s Salvo Fair will incorporate a new Reuse Design enclave. There is a growing number of innovative people creating interesting one-off pieces. They may have items of stock that will not sell in their original form, or they are clever craftspeople and enjoy making new, exciting products using reclaimed items.

Guy Trench is one such person. His business, Antiques By Design, has been running for 5 years and is based in Maldon, Essex. He will be bringing to the fair a collection of his lights handcrafted from violins, rugby balls, fishing rods, cricket bats and mirrors created from decorative antique windows.

Every year Salvo Fair aims to exhibit big, sometimes huge, items of interest. Guy Trench is hoping to bring along a 6ft wooden elephant from Rajasthan, which he believes to be 50 - 70 years old. The hefty and decorative elephant would make a fantastic feature for a restaurant or shop, and will add to the variety and spice, of which you can be assured there always is, on offer at the Salvo Fair.

If you are interested in exhibiting in the Reuse Design marquee, please call Salvo on 01225 422300 or 020 8400 6222

Also, TW Gaze Auctionneers of Diss in Norfolk, will be sponsoring a Pimms marquee at the Salvo Fair. The tent will be open on Friday, the trade day, and Saturday and Sunday, the public days and will be a place to congregate for a chat, a meeting point, and somewhere to shelter from the unpredictable British summer weather! Carl Willows from Gaze will be at the fair, if you'd like to talk auctions, and he'll also be bringing 12 spades to help in our carbon offset adventure, more details to follow.
