Arthur Swallow Fairs are well known through the UK for the wonderful shows they hold featuring antiques, collectables, up-cycled junk and second hand, like for instance the now famous Lincolnshire International Antiques and Home Show.
However, besides its Vintage Flea Market and its Antiques & Home Show, Arthur Swallow Fairs also hosts a series of five summer shows offering a range of essential and unusual delights for the home, garden and renovation project, from grand antique stone urns, salvaged doors, brass hardware and decorative bird cages sourced in the UK and Europe.
Suitably called Decorative Home & Salvage Show, these events feature excellent salvage and industrial items, decorative and architectural antiques, period home fixtures and fittings, restored and up-cycled furniture, garden furniture and statuary, and beautiful one-off homewares. These three-day events are excellent for the trade or private buyer and make for a wonderful day-out for all.
The Cheshire Decorative Home & Salvage Show takes place in June and August at the well-positioned Cheshire Showground on the edge of the grounds of Tabley House near Knutsford. Home of the Cheshire County Show, the venue offers a stunning rural setting for the finest traders to display their wares. The Cheshire Showground Decorative Home & Salvage Show follows the same format as Arthur Swallow Fairs’ other Decorative Home & Salvage Shows. It comprises a mix of shopping arcades and open stands with plenty of space to browse stock, a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere, free parking, on-site catering and a licensed bar.
The spacious layout and laid back pace of the Cheshire Showground Decorative Home & Salvage Show makes for a great day out for all, and is as popular with professional buyers as it is with those looking for pieces for a family home. No two stands are the same and feature a wonderful mix of wares, from practical salvage and hardware to the prettiest of linens and plants. It’s a cleverly laid out event, making it virtually impossible to miss anything. And the fluttery bunting, white marquees and straw bales make the Cheshire Showground Decorative Home & Salvage Show feel like a special day out.
The first and last of the yearly Decorative Home & Salvage Show is hosted in May and September at Ripley Castle, while the Cheshire Showground Decorative Home & Salvage Show takes place in June and August. All five summer shows follow the same format and visitors will experience the same high standard at each event.
