It's official ... more or less ...
The website is still a work in progress but Old Rope Salvage is open for business, with a new shop opened on Etsy and our little gallery and emporium in Crafthole filling up by the day.
We celebrated with another night time photoshoot with Nick Turley, conditions being just right to capture the full glory of the truck and The Milky Way on the coast here at Whitsand Bay.
It was a chilly night with a cool north breeze blowing and we warmed up between photos with coffee and blankets. We even had the luck to capture a spectacular moment as a bus roared past on the road below us, with lots of yelling as Tim leaped up onto the truck and Nick rushed to set the camera up just in time to capture the sweep of lights. We loved the incredible result, a truly magical moment.
We will be adding to our shop one item at a time over the coming weeks. There is still lots to do, but we're excited to be up and running (or maybe taking a casual stroll!) at last. Do get in touch if you have any questions or enquiries, and look (or listen!) out for us and the truck as we rumble backwards and forwards around Torpoint and Crafthole. Weather permitting, we will also be taking her to The Classic Car Show at Tencreek Holiday Park near Looe on 18th September. Updates will undoubtedly follow!
In the meantime, thanks again to Nick for these spectacular images of us and the truck. We shall treasure them.
