I created the salvage selfie to keep up valuable face time with friends, whilst I have been face down in salvage since vowing to do up my home with as many reclaimed materials as possible. The Salvo Fair promises architectural antiques, reclaimed building materials, garden antiques, decorative antiques, retro, vintage, industrial and upcycled pieces; essentially salvie heaven.
