Upcycling is a big part of what we do here at Gumtree – and we’re super passionate about it. As part of our community, you’re the ones who make that adventure possible by turning old, unused items into something beautiful and useful. And we are always thrilled to hear your fantastic stories ( – check out our blog post on how to win a trip to an upcycled hotel in Vienna with your #NationalUpcyclingWeek posts on social media).

All throughout National Upcycling Week 2017 we will share tips and tricks on how to give a second life to used items, but in the meantime, make sure to check out some of our favourite upcycling blogs for inspiration…
