Wiltshire, UK - At the beginning of January, Antique Bathrooms of Ivybridge opened its new showroom in Marlborough, Wiltshire. The showroom of antique baths, basins, toilets, cisterns, lighting and mirrors is one of a few units tucked away on an estate on the fringes of the small market town. Kim from Antique Baths said 'We're not expecting a lot of passing trade. Our main business is carried out through our website, but it's good for people to have somewhere to come and see the kind of thing we sell.'
Kim says 'The bath shown is called The Meavy. It is a lovely small compact English single ended roll top bath with parallel side and ball and claw feet. The size is 1530mm by 730mm costing £700. We also have The Moortown for sale, an original roll top bath with ball and claw feet, 1800mm by 740mm, price £895. Another very unusual and unique bath we have in stock is the Bovey Basin Bath 1875mm by 620mm, price £1200. All prices are ex vat.'
Kim and her partner, Stewart, took over the running of the business last year and are currently working on their Facebook page. The restoration side of the business is still active in Ivybridge and so the business is sometimes known now as 'Antique Bathrooms of Ivybridge and Marlborough'.
The showroom is at Manton, Elcot Lane, Marlborough, Wilts SN8 2BG. Tel: 01672 511620.
