About Us

A bit about us ...........

Vintage Apple Crates began in 2013, at the time it was managed by Melissa Salvatori and her sister Selina. Being part of the Salvatori Group of Companies which includes a fruit trading department meant there were a lot of wooden crated lying around with no purpose. With a desire not to burn them and damage the environment we started by simply putting pallets of these crates on Ebay for sale to the public. 3 years later and we have high volumes of daily sales and now sell wine racks, shelved units and much more using only reclaimed wood from genuinely used apple crates.

We are offering a unique service to our customers, every single piece of wood is hand cut, hand shaped, hand sanded. We only have small workshop equipment to help us get the right finishes.

We work hard to make the customer experience the best possible, we put as much effort into taking care of our customers as we do in creating a lovingly handmade piece of furniture for them. We know the experience doesn't end until our customers recieve their items safe and sound so we scoured the market for the best delivery services we could find and at the best prices. You will find more about this in the delivery section.

We hope you will love your items as much as we have enjoyed making it!

Here's what some of our customers are saying:

Tobi: Hi Danielle. Many thanks for the crates, below.  My client is delighted with them, as with my previous orders from yourselves!  Thank you for the quick and simple service you offer and your very good telephone customer support.  Please do keep the phone support, not just orders through your website, as it is always very helpful to talk the orders through with your staff before confirming an order. Thanks very much again for your great service and I hope to order again from you soon. (Wooden Crates)

Liz: Hello, I felt I must email you to say how pleased I am with the order I received today. I placed my order less than a week ago and expected to have to wait at least 3 weeks for custom made products, so when I found out how quick they were to be delivered I was worried that I might be compromising on the quality. This was absolutely not the case. They are exactly what I wanted, they fit perfectly, and look fantastic. I am so impressed, they are better than anything I could find in any shop. I have left a review on your website, and I will be telling everyone I can about the quality of your products and speed of delivery. I have attached a picture in case you wanted to put it on your website. Thank you, Liz (made to order crates)
