If you have decided what you most need in your life is a 19th century clock tower to sit atop your home, then you should be heading to the Salvo Fair on June 18 and 19.
Because, as it happens, just such a thing, taken from a Cotswolds property, will be on offer - a snip at just £4,500. Now that would make the neighbours sit up and take notice.
This is retro chic at it's best.
Salvo Fair, the biggest architectural salvage and garden antiques show, now in its 14th year, will take place on June 18 and 19 at Icehouse Lane, Henley-on-Thames.
It is the only architectural antiques fair that exhibits items as diverse as a door knob or garden urn to a vintage showman’s wagon, or the balustrade from a London landmark bridge – and all of it is for sale.
Around seventy dealers from all over England as well as France, Belgium and Holland will showcase the best of their stock.
The Fair attracts some the UK’s best decorative antique and salvage dealers, antique garden ornament, reclaimed building materials, industrial furniture and lighting, vintage homeware, and upcycled furniture from reclaimed materials.
It takes place in the deer park of Sir William McAlpine’s estate, whose steam trains will be offering rides to fairgoers.
An auction of railway memorabilia is also scheduled for the Sunday.
Sir William McAlpine's deer park is home to numerous pieces of building rescued by the owner.
These include 31 four metre high Victorian cast iron columns from St Pancras Station, flagpoles from Wembley Stadium and arches from Waterloo.
