Stand Tall Art Auction spreading hope and raising cash!

Stand Tall Art Auction happened in July 2022 and was an act of solidarity through creativity, curated by art-minded friends from Ashburton, Devon; writer Sylvie Saunders, Salty’s screen-printer Sandra Salter and designer Kate Humphries.

Salty's are getting a shop!

..it started with Christmas cards, some t-shirts for presents - and then a market stall a few weeks before Christmas. And then we popped-up a mini shop in the delicious Harp Lane Deli, Ludlow, Shropshire - our home town for 8 years. And then the penny dropped! By assembling our wares in a lovely space, gave us the chance to see how we looked as a retail proposition and we liked it! We got to make things we like and get to meet people who like what we do. The perfect antidote to years of working in media, computers, commuters, in offices, long hours, all nighters.
