This year's competition promotion working with Antiques Young Guns was very well supported and it's hats off to Lucie Farriomond & Lily Johnston – winners of a free pitch at the 2016 Salvo Fair!
Antiques Young Guns Lucie of Three toads Antiques and Lily of Bombe Antiques have each won a coveted free pitch at the annual Salvo Fair as the AYG@SALVO initiative enters its second year. Following on from the success enjoyed by last year’s winner, AYG Chloe Rymer of Molly & Maud's Place.
Chloe Rymer of Molly and Mauds told ANF: “Last year we were the very lucky winners of the AYG competition for a free pitch at the Salvo fair. We had a fantastic experience and a very successful weekend. As well as lots of healthy sales we met many great clients, new and old. We had a really good time all roundand have booked our stand for 2016! – lets hope the weather is as good as last year! Thank you very much AYG and Salvo Fair for a wonderful opportunity!”
The free pitch will see Lily and Lucie standing alongside excellent fellow exhibitions from across the UK and Europe, all within the stunning 10 acre Salvo Fair site at Fawley Hill, Henley-On-Thames, set to receive 5,500 visitors over the 3 day event.
20 Year old Lily Johnston, together with being an archaeology undergraduate, works with her mum at Bombe Antiques in Kent, stocking 17th-20th Century decorative and architectural antiques to include French, Swedish and English pieces.
Lucie Farriomind owns Three Toads Antiques, a family run antiques and architectural salvage business based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent and founded in March 2014, which offers a range of antiques and collectibles from Art Deco ceramics and enamel signs to architectural antiques.
The arrival of Lucie and Lily is perfectly timed as Salvo Fair 2016 celebrates ‘Hats Off to Women’, and Ruby Hazael of Salvo Fair told ANF: “This year we are celebrating women who work in salvage, and women customers whose discerning taste helps keep the salvage trade booming.”
The 2016 Salvo Fair can be found at Fawley Hill, Icehouse Lane, Henley-On-Thames, Oxfordshire, RG9 3AP.
