It is also the home for Louisville’s first LEED certified building.

Salvo Collective

July 1, marked the opening of a new era in Louisville design. Salvo Collective, located on Shelby Street in the East Market Galley District, combines high end style with Kentucky craft. Focusing on repurposed and recycled materials, the 15+ artists span across a variety of mediums from wood furniture, glass,  bicycle spoke lamps, and leather bags.  As one looks at the merchandise, it’s easy to see that each artist has a unique style but there is a common theme that ties it all together. I wanted to buy one of everything and take it home!  My favorite items were the bicycle spoke lamps, limestone washboard sink, and the leather owl clutch bag.  Prices vary from more expensive (furniture) to more affordable (ceramics, jewelry, stationary). There is something for everyone though, so make sure to check them out at the next gallery hop downtown or during their hours: Wednesday & Thursday 11-3, Friday & Saturday 11-6, Sunday 12-4. Follow their facebook page for updates on new products, events, and more!
