Based in Phoenix, Furniture Bank is a 501c3 non-profit established in 2012 to assist the less fortunate moving into housing by providing furniture and household items. 'Many of these individuals, including children, do not have a bed or other basic necessities to take to their new home and it is our hope to create a positive and comfortable environment they can call home, and put the stigma of being homeless in the past,’ says Tami Jackson, Founder of Furniture Bank.
When asked why no more than 60 vendors, Salvage Company founder and event presenter Patricia Dickenson noted, “We're not trying to produce the biggest show, we just want it to be the best, with a never before seen mix of one-of-a-kind offerings.” Dickenson adds, 'and with vendor booths measuring 15x20' vs. the industry standard 10x10', shoppers will really enjoy the increased inventory and room to spread out.' Regarding site selection for the show, Dickenson said, “Whenever I'm picking in Southern Arizona or New Mexico, I always end up stopping in Queen Creek and just love it, especially HPEC. It's the perfect venue for Vintage Roadshow.” Learn more at their website
Dickenson got into shabby chic, architectural salvage, French country home furnishings, and home decor created from authentic found vintage materials more than 25 years ago, long before it became all the rage it is today. She operates The Salvage Co. with daughter-in-law, Jodi Helmer and both are thankful that business is booming. In addition to retail locations in Phoenix and historic Superior, Ariz., the company also offers complete design and makeover services. Learn more at their website.
