Masco Salvage have had a busy time over the last couple of weeks which is set to continue over Easter. Four days at the National Home Build and Renovation Show at the NEC in Birmingham last week produced a fabulous looking and very interesting stand. If we’d had a pound for everyone who touched or stroked the rare original cast iron radiators at the front of the stand we could shut the business for the rest of the year!
Located opposite the food hall (!) the stand was staffed for the first 2 days by the owner of The Old Radiator Company, Andy Triplow, who has just bought Masco Salvage, along with the new business development manager, Lizzie Whyte.
There was a wide mix of items on show and for sale including hardware, fireplaces, radiators, seed trays, garden ornaments, a reclaimed gazebo and wood flooring.
The large polished cast iron fireplace with tiled insert that you can see in the picture at the back of the stand was sold to 2 very lucky and happy people! With a complete pallet of wood on show, and cut examples for people to take away the wood flooring proved really popular. There were several types and finishes available from solid oak to engineered to reclaimed pine, and lots of price lists and information were taken by potential customers. If you missed out you can find the information along with a technical wood flooring guide on our website.
One other item that created a huge amount of interest was the reclaimed solid oak church door, seen below at the side of our stand.
Beautiful, amazing, heavy…, incredible, priceless and ‘I want it’ were several of the comments expressed upon seeing the door! Around the back of the stand we had a garden area which displayed our reclaimed gazebo, a beautiful stone bench and a 5 seater curved bench. It looked great and lots of people rested their weary legs after a long walk round the show.
So now to Easter and hasn’t it come round quickly! Masco will be open on Good Friday and Easter Saturday 9am-4pm and Easter Monday 10am-4pm. Debbie and Lizzie will be on site, and there may be some surprise Easter eggs available if you’re quick! Well actually that’s no longer a surprise is it!
You will be able to stroll round our newly stocked showroom, rummage in the ‘rummage’ room, and see all our garden benches, ornaments and statues to give you some great design inspiration for your garden. We have a wide selection of rustic stone troughs, and a few reclaimed chimneys now in stock which make great planters.
We have also just received this amazing original copper planter, complete with Camelia, which looks stunning and would provide instant colour and grace to your garden, be quick it won’t hang around for long!
We look forward to seeing you over the Easter weekend, do pop in and say Hello and have a good look at our website to plan your visit and what you’re going to buy!
