Now going into its third year, the Ripley Castle event is set to be the best yet, with the welcome return of salvage show regulars such as Southport Architectural Salvage, Abacus Architectural Antiques, Search & Rescue Antiques and, of course, Chris Holmes Decorative Interiors.
We are also joined this year by some wonderful new recruits! English Garden Statuary, a family run business who manufacture quality, handcrafted, vintage style garden statuary and Lady Norfolk & Lord Rust who are going to treat us to ‘the perfect mix of attractive up-cycled furniture and rusty and crusty relics from yesterday’. We are also really pleased to have so many local new additions to the event. These include the Antiques, Curio & Salvage Barn and French Loveliness, both from the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, just down the road from Ripley.
If you have never visited this event before, expect to find anything from industrial, decorative and architectural antiques, wrought iron garden furniture and giant stone statuary to reclaimed hurricane roof tiles, intricately carved doorknobs dating back to the early 19th century and beautiful decorative textiles and furnishings.
The show is now fully booked with approximately 100 dealers. Here’s a list of some of the exhibitors in attendance with many more to see at the show!

As if that wasn’t enough to tempt you, there is also a fabulous selection of tasty treats on offer. When visitors are ready to take a break from shopping they can grab a rich, frothy coffee or sip a fruit filled Pimm’s. There’s also the option to indulge in a gourmet burger or stone baked pizza or sit down for a decadent cream tea served from a beautifully restored vintage caravan!
So, if you are salvage savvy, passionate about the past, restoring a Victorian home to its former glory, or just looking for that exquisite piece to make a statement, then the Decorative Home & Salvage Show is the one for you!
