Decorative Home & Salvage Show at Ripley Castle

The Decorative Home & Salvage Show at Ripley Castle features 80 carefully picked traders from all over Europe exhibiting the best in decorative and architectural antiques, reclaimed and salvaged materials

Arthur Swallow Fairs are well known through the UK for the wonderful shows they hold featuring antiques, collectables, up-cycled junk and second hand. The first and last of their yearly shows are hosted in May and September at the Decorative Home & Salvage Show at Ripley Castle.

Ripley Castle is a fourteenth century stately home just outside Harrogate in North Yorkshire. Situated on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales National Park, Ripley Castle’s stunning location provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the goods at the Decorative Home & Salvage Show.

Though many of the dealers at the Decorative Home & Salvage Show at Ripley Castle are regulars, organizers are always scouting for new products, skills and collections to showcase and keep the visitors entertained with original pieces every time. With it being a show held just twice annually, there is certainly not enough time for any of the goods to become familiar, and those that make sure to visit this show whenever it is on are guaranteed fresh, bespoke and new pieces.

In addition to antiques and collectable items, visitors attending the Decorative Home & Salvage Show will find around 80 carefully picked traders from all over Europe exhibiting the best in decorative and architectural antiques, reclaimed and salvaged materials, garden furniture and statuary, restored and up-cycled furniture, period home fixtures and fittings for the home, furnishings and industrial pieces put to a variety of new and intriguing uses, furniture, tools and too many curios to mention.

The layout of these events flows in a shopping avenue style which is dotted with pretty white marquees and plenty of places to sit and rest tired shopping feet – the atmosphere is joyous with an element of luxury about it.

Anyone seeking inspiration for redecoration their own home, or how to make use of seemingly useless objects should be sure to visit the Decorative Home & Salvage Show at Ripley Castle. The ideas are almost endless, and the vendors are keen to chat about their ideas and share their knowledge. Whatever junk may be lying around at home, be sure that someone at this show has created something useful or beautiful out of it!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
