Last week’s Decorative Home & Salvage Show at Cheshire Showground was yet another event that wowed us, along with hundreds of visitors who came and shopped, chatted, sipped tea, chilled with a cold Pimms and generally enjoyed the event. The standard was high again, with our exhibitors pulling out all the stops to make sure their stands were show-stoppingly beautiful. We had the pleasure of Reclaim magazine standing with us again, as well as local stylists and bloggers who were enthused by their visit.
The show attracted every kind of salvage buyer, from those looking to kit out a restaurant or find materials for a home refurbishment to those looking for pieces to add finishing touches to an interior or garden scheme; the beautifully styled stands offered up inspiration galore so it was easy work on the eye, even if there was a bit of lugging around to be done.
Hefty salvage and solid home hardware sat well amongst a fine array of pretty things, appealing to all styles and tastes. French decorative homewares and salvage were in abundance.
One stand that really packed a punch was Reclaimed World who had promised big things; the double-decker 1960s London bus filled with decorative homewares and a busy array of fairground salvage kept that promise and turned heads.
Last year The Old Yard brought a couple of small and characterful garden sheds made by their own fair hands entirely out of salvaged materials. This year they up-scaled the idea and transported a large garden room/office which they had lovingly made, capturing everyone’s imagination.
Interiors stylist and blogger Karen Barlow (above) made her first visit to the show from Manchester and had some lovely things to say about the show. “I love a good root around an antique fair or boot sale and there is nothing better, as far as I am concerned, than spending a day in the middle of the beautiful Cheshire countryside picking my way through some of the finest antique and vintage treasures, sourced from the UK and Europe.If like me, this is your idea of heaven, then The Decorative Home & Salvage Show is an event not to be missed”.
