Oxfordshire, UK - What's on getbucks reports that Salvo Fair is the biggest architectural salvage and garden antiques show, and it is back this weekend. Now held annually in the deer park of Sir William and Lady McAlpine which is home to numerous pieces of rescued building, Salvo Fair is in its 14th year!
The Fair attracts some of the best decorative antique and salvage dealers from the UK and Europe, with antique garden ornament, reclaimed building materials, industrial furniture and lighting, vintage homeware, plus upcycled furniture from reclaimed materials. Around seventy dealers will showcase their best stock.
Debbie Thompson-Buck, from getbucks online comments:
'It is the only architectural antiques fair that exhibits items as diverse as a door knob or garden urn to a vintage showman's wagon, or the balustrade from a London landmark bridge and all of it is for sale.' This year the 19th century clocktower, pictured will be on sale for £4,500, and as Debbie says 'that would make the neighbours sit up and take notice.'
The steam train will be running on Sunday for railway enthusiast's and families to enjoy plus there will also be an auction of railway memorabilia. There is the usual vintage tea tent, ice-cream and bar - so a Father's Day treat perhaps?
