Our last in a run of six summer Decorative Home & Salvage Shows opens this week - 6th– 8thSeptember – at the Ripley Castle Estate and we’re delighted to be able to share the full exhibitor list with you (scroll to the bottom for list). Held just a stones-throw away from the stunning 14th Century country house within its extended grounds, close to Harrogate and Knaresborough, the surroundings provide the perfect backdrop to an event with a focus on all things old and beautiful. As ever, the show will offer up a fantastic roster of exhibitors selling salvage and industrial items, period home fixtures and fittings, decorative and architectural antiques, textiles, garden furniture and statuary, restored and up-cycled furniture and beautiful one-off homeware. If you're a fan of Salvage Hunters you'll be pleased to hear that they'll be filming at the show, so do keep an eye out for Drew Pritchard and Co.
To offer our visitors something extra special over the summer, we’ve run a programme of inspirational, interactive and hands-on workshops at each event which have been carefully curated and hosted by writer and interior stylist Alice Roberton. These small sessions, which last an hour each, have been a huge success and we have a great line-up for this show. Booking up in advance is advisable (we have a few places left) – your ticket gives you free entry to the event (value £7.50) and a glass of complimentary fizz (or soft drink).
