Salvo Fair 2011 - Reclaim Reuse Repeat

This entry was posted on 11th June 2011

Friday the 24th to Sunday the 26th of June, see the annual Salvo Fair. This year, Knebworth House is the host to this fantastic fair. Friday is trade day, then Saturday and Sunday are open to the public. The salvage trade has increased dramatically over the past few years, with people investing more effort in their existing homes rather than moving up the property ladder. Home owners have been giving their homes face-lifts, and have been savvy spending on antique and salvage goods, rather than brand new items. Your sure to find some individual home wares whilst giving environment a helping hand by recycling products. You will find some real weird and wonderful items at salvage fairs, and with a little bit of creative flair, you’ll be able to change them into wonderful pieces for the home. Some of the most interesting purchases have been nickel taps, railway sleepers, a stunning marble bath, stained glass windows, life rings and oak barrels. You’ll find a wide variety of exhibitors at the fair from salvage companies, selling everything for the garden and home, including reclaimed building materials, architectural salvage, garden antiques, decorative antiques, bygones, crafts people and green building.It can be a real weekend away for the whole family, another bonus is if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the fair, you can visit Knebworth House itself. You can pretty much use old items to recreate new, for instance old watering cans can be planted with bedding flowers, railway sleepers can create raised beds in the garden or become a mantel pieces over an open fire. Even old ld meat hooks can, having been made safe for home utilisation, be reused in the kitchen to hang pots, pans and kitchen utensils on, and old glass and tiles can be broken up to create mosaic features in the garden or in the home. If you’re looking for some individual items with authentic character or just fancy spending a day browsing beautiful and interesting vintage pieces, visit the Salvo Fair on the 24th-26th at June, you can purchase your tickets here and get 10% discount when booking in advance for the Saturday and Sunday.
