Salvo Fair first exhibitor arrives and he is Belgian!

Above: Van de Wouwer Deco's stand on Wednesday afternoon. Another sixty pitches still to go . . . all will be ready for the Friday trade day and Saturday and Sunday public days.

Salvo Fair, Knebworth - JEROEN van Orshaegen of Van de Wouwer Deco is the first exhibitor to arrive at this year's Salvo Fair with a mix of antiques and garden ornament inlcuding a fabulous collection of zinc baths from around Europe. "These baths are becoming harder to find," Jerome said. "I have scoured the continent's antique fairs buying every one I could, and have bought them all to Salvo. It's the first time I have been to this fair and I am hoping the public might be interested in the stuff I have."

Ruby Kay, Salvo Fair organiser, was pleased to announce an increase in the size of this year's exhbition. "There are about 30 per cent more pitches this year, and we have created a new feature area which we have dubbed 'Crafty Square' where visitors will see a pargeter, thatchers, blacksmith, upholsterers, sculptors, and Wocko the woodman making shingles and palings." There will also be two stands in Crafty Square of items made from reclaimed materials, including light fittings made from old fishing rods and mirrors made from cast iron window frames and old wooden sash windows.

Salvo Fair, 11am - 5pm, Fri 27 - Sun 29 June 2008, Knebworth House Hertfordshire
