Finding upcycling inspiration from Newark Antiques Market

When scrolling through Instagram ourselves, we came across this stunning upcycled bathroom sink, a piece found at Newark Antiques Markets by Vintage Home Staging (Karen Murray, @vintagehomestaging).
“Bathroom sink counters are usually so boring, off the shelf cheaply made things that I can’t face parting with my money for one…” Karen exclaims. “I would always rather find an interesting vintage unit with some history behind it as well as being of far better quality.”

Newark : The Local Area
Newark Castle Newark-Upon-Trent
Europe's largest antiques market takes place in Nottinghamshire, the home of everyone's favourite outlaw Robin Hood.
Nottinghamshire is a fitting location for such a phenomenal antiques event, being a county steeped in history. Here you'll find ancient underground caves, Ice Age drawings at Creswell Craggs and in Nottingham itself the site where the English Civil War began when King Charles I raised his standard in 1642. The Newark International Antiques & Collectors Market takes place at the Newark and Nottinghamshire Showground in Winthorpe, just 5 minutes from the historic market own of Newark-on-Trent. Why not combine your visit to the fair with a stay in the region for a break packed full of activity?
You could further your interest in all things from days gone by with a trip to the award winning attraction Galleries of Justice. You could visit Southwell and see the splendour of its Minster.
Or why not make your trip a combination of contemporary and classic and indulge in further retail therapy in Nottingham city centre? Fitting for a city that was once home to style icon Paul Smith, you'll find fabulous clothes shops, and many stylish bars and restaurants to round off your trip perfectly.
