EVIL LAUGHTER

0:00:400:00:42

Today, the dealing dandy David Harper goes into battle with

0:00:420:00:46

princess of profit Caroline Hawley, in a Parisian antiques market.

0:00:460:00:51

Coming up, Caroline finds her inner supermodel.

0:00:510:00:54

How cool is this? I just love it!

0:00:540:00:57

But David wants his turn on the catwalk too.

0:00:570:00:59

Fashion... I AM fashion.

0:00:590:01:02

And our experts face some hard haggles.

0:01:020:01:04

You've shown me something lovely,

0:01:040:01:07

and it is something I would like to own. £85.

0:01:070:01:10

Oh, my goodness gracious!

0:01:100:01:13

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

0:01:130:01:16

Bienvenue, Mesdames et messieurs,

0:01:310:01:34

and welcome to a Parisian profit adventure.

0:01:340:01:36

We've crossed the Channel to unleash two duelling dealers

0:01:360:01:40

on a French antiques market,

0:01:400:01:42

and it promises to be a battle of Napoleonic proportions!

0:01:420:01:45

But who will leave the battlefield in a blaze of glory

0:01:450:01:49

and who will be bidding a hasty retreat to Blighty?

0:01:490:01:52

In one corner, it's a profit-hungry powerhouse.

0:01:520:01:55

A man whose colourful clobber hides a black-and-white approach

0:01:550:01:58

to bargain hunting.

0:01:580:02:01

From the north-east of England, it's...

0:02:010:02:04

Do you find that price horrifying?

0:02:050:02:07

His mighty challenger is a sharp-eyed

0:02:070:02:10

auctioneer extraordinaire.

0:02:100:02:12

She circles the sales for bargains before swooping in to make the kill.

0:02:120:02:17

It's Hull's own profit-hunting bird of prey...

0:02:170:02:20

I'm on the case, you might as well just pack it in.

0:02:210:02:25

Today's treasure tussle takes place in an

0:02:250:02:28

antiques market in Saint-Ouen, in northern Paris.

0:02:280:02:30

One of the city's largest and most famous markets,

0:02:300:02:33

there are thousands of stalls to plunder, but thousands of other

0:02:330:02:37

buyers to beat as well, so our twosome will need to move quickly!

0:02:370:02:40

They've each got £750 worth of their own euros to spend.

0:02:400:02:44

And of course any profits they make will go to their chosen charities.

0:02:440:02:49

So, without further delay, David Harper and Caroline Hawley,

0:02:490:02:53

it's time to Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

0:02:530:02:57

Good 'moaning', David.

0:02:570:02:59

Good 'moaning' to you. And crikey, are you going for the bright look!

0:02:590:03:04

I could say the same about you, David.

0:03:040:03:06

This is normal attire! Is that the Parisian hat?

0:03:060:03:08

-It is. Mon chapeau Francais.

-Oooh! Have you been to Paris before?

0:03:080:03:13

Not to this particular market, but I've shopped a lot in France.

0:03:130:03:16

I love it. And I find my French is a great help, David.

0:03:160:03:19

-Do you speak French?

-Oh, fluent.

-Do you indeed?

0:03:190:03:22

-Yeah, yeah, baby.

-Oh!

0:03:220:03:23

Yeah, they understand me. I'm just like a native.

0:03:230:03:26

Basically, I dress like them and I sound like them.

0:03:260:03:29

Now, Caroline, you are a big buyer of vintage clothing but why,

0:03:290:03:32

on all of our journeys, have you not bought any vintage items?

0:03:320:03:35

I haven't come across anything really that I want so far.

0:03:350:03:38

But I think today is the day I'm going to find something.

0:03:380:03:41

And I challenge you to do the same, David.

0:03:410:03:44

I think I could do that very well, if that's the case.

0:03:440:03:46

I'm going to challenge you to buy something Oriental.

0:03:460:03:50

OK, bon chance, David.

0:03:500:03:52

-What does that mean?

-SHE LAUGHS

0:03:520:03:54

-Come on, let's go.

-I understand that.

-On y va.

0:03:540:03:57

So it's a clash of the colours today with the green-trousered

0:03:580:04:01

titan going head-to-head with the Pink Panther of Profit.

0:04:010:04:04

And as if their Put Your Money battle wasn't enough,

0:04:040:04:07

they've upped the stakes by setting each other an extra challenge.

0:04:070:04:11

Caroline has set me a challenge to buy some vintage fashion.

0:04:110:04:14

She thinks I'm going to struggle with that, does she?

0:04:140:04:17

She doesn't know fashion. I AM fashion!

0:04:170:04:21

-# Fashion

-Turn to the left... #

0:04:210:04:23

If you say so, Devilish! The market is under way

0:04:230:04:26

and our colourful collectors are poised to pounce.

0:04:260:04:29

The Hawk is hoping her language skills will give her

0:04:290:04:32

the edge on her rival.

0:04:320:04:33

IN FRENCH:

0:04:340:04:37

Er, yes. And maybe once again for those of us

0:04:440:04:46

that aren't quite up to scratch with the lingo!

0:04:460:04:49

Today I've got a plan.

0:04:490:04:50

I'm going to use my French and it's going to give me

0:04:500:04:53

a major advantage over David.

0:04:530:04:55

Good luck, David. Today, I'm going to win.

0:04:550:04:58

Ooh. Merci 'beaucoop'! But Devilish has a plan of his own.

0:04:580:05:02

My tactic is to search out English speakers.

0:05:020:05:06

And then to look for really interesting, wacky,

0:05:060:05:08

eccentric, distinctly Continental pieces that

0:05:080:05:12

when I get back home to old Blighty, they are going to look really

0:05:120:05:15

different and really, really special.

0:05:150:05:18

So, our Durham dealer isn't letting his lack of French hold him back,

0:05:180:05:21

and he's the first to spot a potential profit.

0:05:210:05:25

-Hello.

-Hello.

-Hi, do you speak English?

0:05:250:05:27

-Yeah.

-Thank you!

0:05:270:05:29

-Hello, I'm David.

-I'm Pierre.

-Pierre, lovely to meet you.

0:05:290:05:32

That's very eccentric. It's very interesting.

0:05:320:05:35

Very interesting and very rare.

0:05:350:05:37

-It's a shop sign.

-OK, that's what I'm thinking. Yes. Yes.

0:05:370:05:42

-The written price...

-Oh, it's got a price on it?

0:05:420:05:45

-See? 680.

-Oh, wow. OK.

0:05:450:05:48

For you, 400.

0:05:480:05:50

400.

0:05:520:05:54

That's a lot. It's a lot. But it's very nice. It couldn't be 200 euros?

0:05:540:05:58

-250.

-250?

-No?

0:06:000:06:03

Can we make it 225 euros?

0:06:030:06:06

HE LAUGHS

0:06:060:06:07

How's that?

0:06:070:06:09

How's that? Good man! Marvellous. Marvellous.

0:06:090:06:12

Thank you very much, Pierre.

0:06:120:06:14

So, at just over £184,

0:06:140:06:17

Devilish has spent a quarter of his budget on his very first purchase.

0:06:170:06:22

Well, it is obviously a clock face.

0:06:220:06:23

Dating to 1948, just after the Second World War.

0:06:230:06:27

And very reminiscent, of course, of the Art Deco style.

0:06:270:06:30

If you look at the number three and the four, so Deco.

0:06:300:06:34

Needs restoring, of course.

0:06:340:06:35

But I don't know where I'm going to go with it.

0:06:350:06:38

But one day it will end up, no doubt, in front of a posh classic

0:06:380:06:42

car dealership or a furniture store or something like that.

0:06:420:06:46

Interestingly, it was priced at 680. I got it at 225.

0:06:460:06:50

You think that might be a bit shocking, not really.

0:06:500:06:53

How do you value something like this?

0:06:530:06:55

You can't value it.

0:06:550:06:57

I think he's just pitched it at a high price thinking someone

0:06:570:07:00

would walk in one day and take it. Obviously they haven't.

0:07:000:07:03

I walk in today, I give him cash, probably owes him nothing,

0:07:030:07:07

he's done well, and I'm very pleased.

0:07:070:07:09

Well, we should hope so for that amount of money!

0:07:090:07:12

MUSIC: Pink Panther Theme Tune

0:07:120:07:14

Across the market, the Pink Panther has been on the prowl.

0:07:140:07:17

She's spotted an antique umbrella stand and quickly seals the deal.

0:07:170:07:20

I've just bought this 19th-century French stick stand,

0:07:200:07:25

or umbrella stand, for 60 euros.

0:07:250:07:27

A very, very good price. It's in great condition.

0:07:270:07:30

Always look with your hands as well as your eyes.

0:07:300:07:33

You can feel any damage.

0:07:330:07:35

There's no breaks. Cast iron is a very, very brittle material.

0:07:350:07:39

And very prone to breaking. It's a great thing. Very pretty.

0:07:390:07:43

Great original condition. I'm thrilled to bits with this.

0:07:430:07:46

So the stick and umbrella stand cost her just

0:07:460:07:49

over £49 in sterling.

0:07:490:07:50

And she's straight onto her second deal

0:07:520:07:55

when she spots a drinks bar in the shape of a ship.

0:07:550:07:58

Time to put her French to the test.

0:07:580:08:00

C'est combien?

0:08:000:08:02

-IN FRENCH:

-300 euros.

-300 euros.

0:08:020:08:05

300 euros.

0:08:050:08:06

So how good is The Hawk's haggling en Francais?

0:08:060:08:09

IN FRENCH:

0:08:090:08:12

-OK.

-OK?

-OK.

0:08:140:08:16

Super, madame. Merci beaucoup.

0:08:160:08:19

The smooth talking Hawk seals the deal for £122.95.

0:08:190:08:25

This is fantastic. It's English. It's 1950s.

0:08:250:08:29

It's so kitsch, it's so ghastly, it's wonderful.

0:08:290:08:33

It's all complete, all original. Look at this, there is no damage in it.

0:08:330:08:38

Complete with the anchor, can you see?

0:08:380:08:40

It really is fantastic. I love it.

0:08:400:08:43

I could sell this all day long.

0:08:430:08:46

Sante, David.

0:08:460:08:47

Caroline's sweet-talking her way round this market like a true local!

0:08:470:08:53

But what of her devilish opponent?

0:08:530:08:55

He's eyeing up a light fitting,

0:08:550:08:57

but will his lack of lingo hold him back?

0:08:570:09:00

Bonjour. Hi, sorry, do you speak English?

0:09:000:09:03

-A little.

-A little, good.

0:09:030:09:04

Wall lights, very interesting.

0:09:040:09:06

What date do think these are?

0:09:060:09:08

-100 years old.

-Yeah, it's heading that way. Early 20th century.

0:09:080:09:13

It falls into the Nouveau kind of period. What kind of price?

0:09:130:09:17

-Here we are.

-120.

-Oof!

0:09:170:09:20

Right, OK. I give it the big build-up, you see?

0:09:200:09:23

And then I get hit with a horrific price.

0:09:230:09:25

Do you find that price horrifying?

0:09:250:09:27

-Best price, 80.

-80, that's a bit better.

0:09:270:09:30

Sir, I think I'm going to have to purchase them. 80.

0:09:300:09:33

-Thank you very much indeed.

-Thank you.

0:09:330:09:36

It's great this, isn't it, speaking fluent French.

0:09:370:09:39

Er, yes! That's deal deux for Devilish Harper, at £65.57.

0:09:390:09:45

I'm happy to take them at 80 euros. And the reason why is the colour.

0:09:470:09:53

The blue and the stylised flame, which gives it more of an

0:09:530:09:57

Art Nouveau feel, as opposed to the standard, traditional wall lights.

0:09:570:10:01

They are a bit unusual. They are a bit special. They are very French.

0:10:010:10:05

They are very stylish.

0:10:050:10:06

-IN A FRENCH ACCENT:

-And I am very happy.

0:10:060:10:08

Just using the accent doesn't make it French, you know.

0:10:080:10:12

But the light fittings are bang on his Continental strategy, tres bon!

0:10:120:10:17

Across the market, Caroline has spotted an unusual-looking item.

0:10:170:10:21

It's to make the brim of a hat.

0:10:210:10:23

And if you look at it, you can see

0:10:230:10:26

these little nail holes where the fabric has been put on.

0:10:260:10:30

I think that's quite interesting.

0:10:300:10:32

A little bit of damage, but it's been used.

0:10:320:10:35

C'est combien?

0:10:350:10:37

S'il vous plait?

0:10:380:10:40

Votre meilleur dernier prix pour marchand?

0:10:400:10:44

I've asked for her best, best dealer's price. Dernier prix.

0:10:450:10:50

That means the last price. Let's hope it is.

0:10:500:10:53

C'est 20.

0:10:550:10:56

-20?!

-20.

0:10:560:10:58

20 euros. I think I've got to have that.

0:10:580:11:02

Merci, madame. Je vais bien. Merci beaucoup, madame.

0:11:020:11:06

That's just over £16 and Caroline's third buy in the bag.

0:11:060:11:11

Our British bargain bloodhounds are taking this market by storm.

0:11:110:11:15

And it's Devilish Harper who's lining up the next deal.

0:11:150:11:19

OK, I've never seen this before so I assume this is an implement

0:11:190:11:24

to help you remove your boot.

0:11:240:11:26

There we go. "France. Creation." I don't know what that says.

0:11:260:11:31

I need Caroline.

0:11:310:11:32

Interesting little object, actually. Um...

0:11:320:11:36

It's on the table where it says everything is 10 euros

0:11:360:11:39

but it's priced at 28.

0:11:390:11:40

Let me just find out if that indeed is 10 euros.

0:11:400:11:44

-Bonjour.

-Bonjour.

-I'm David.

0:11:440:11:46

-Bernhard.

-Bernhard, nice to meet you.

0:11:460:11:48

I was looking at this object here.

0:11:480:11:50

-Yes.

-Is it 10 euros?

0:11:500:11:52

-Yes.

-It's all 10? OK.

0:11:520:11:53

It's a bit odd, it's a bit eccentric.

0:11:530:11:56

I think it falls right into the category of my preferred purchases.

0:11:560:12:00

So, Bernhard, I think we have a deal. 10 euros.

0:12:000:12:02

-OK.

-Thank you very much indeed.

-It's for you.

-THEY LAUGH

0:12:020:12:06

Yes, right on his eccentric Continental strategy, and at £8.20,

0:12:060:12:10

that's a pocket-friendly purchase for the Baron of Buying.

0:12:100:12:14

It's neck and neck so far for our profit-hunting Brits.

0:12:140:12:17

But The Hawk's sharp eyes soon spot a little chair

0:12:170:12:20

and before you can say "bargain", she's done the deal.

0:12:200:12:22

Aren't I a sucker for children's dolly's furniture?

0:12:240:12:28

This is a steal. 45 euros. It's fantastic. Original condition.

0:12:280:12:34

Late 19th, early 20th century.

0:12:340:12:37

Tiny little bit of damage here, but you'd expect that.

0:12:370:12:40

And this will sell all day long to the legions of doll,

0:12:400:12:44

teddy collectors all over the place.

0:12:440:12:47

Thrilled to bits with this. Cheap at half the price.

0:12:470:12:50

So that's £36.89 for the little chair,

0:12:500:12:54

another quick fire purchase by The Hawk!

0:12:540:12:57

Her archrival has been keeping an eye out for some vintage fashion,

0:12:570:13:01

as challenged by his competitor.

0:13:010:13:03

I know, I know, I'm looking good.

0:13:030:13:05

But despite his little fashion show, he doesn't buy the jacket,

0:13:060:13:11

and instead nets himself a fish dish at a nearby stall

0:13:110:13:14

for a little under £33.

0:13:140:13:16

It screams fish, lobster, fun, food.

0:13:160:13:20

It's got a good look. It's in good condition.

0:13:200:13:22

Date wise, well, I'm going to have to guess.

0:13:220:13:25

There's no marks on there. What is it? Probably '70s.

0:13:250:13:28

It's got a bit of a '70s colour and theme to it which, again,

0:13:280:13:31

is kind of trendy. So that's OK. 40 euros.

0:13:310:13:34

But you know, in this game, you've got to take chances.

0:13:340:13:37

Yes, he's a daring dealer! So our duo have been bagging bargains

0:13:370:13:42

left, right and centre so far, but who's spent what?

0:13:420:13:45

They each arrived in France with £750 worth of euros.

0:13:450:13:49

David has made four deals so far, costing a penny under £291,

0:13:490:13:54

leaving just over £459 still to spend.

0:13:540:13:59

Caroline also has four buys in the bag,

0:13:590:14:02

but she's spent just over £225 so has nearly £525 left in her kitty.

0:14:020:14:09

It's been a busy morning but our duo are unflustered.

0:14:090:14:12

-Look at you looking all Parisian.

-Thank you!

-Are you loving it?

0:14:120:14:16

-Loving it. How are you managing?

-I'm doing all right, actually.

0:14:160:14:20

I'm having a jolly good time. I've got a couple of things.

0:14:200:14:23

-One I got a massive discount on.

-Yeah.

-Does that make you worried?

0:14:230:14:26

No, not really, because I did just the same.

0:14:260:14:28

-I got a fabulous item for half the ticket price.

-Did you really?

-Yeah.

0:14:280:14:33

-It makes me a little bit smug.

-It makes you a bit special.

0:14:330:14:36

-What about the challenge?

-The challenge has been challenging.

0:14:360:14:40

I'm quietly content with how it's gone so far, David.

0:14:400:14:43

I'm so pleased for you.

0:14:430:14:45

So why don't you go and be quietly content elsewhere

0:14:450:14:48

and I'm going to go and buy something else.

0:14:480:14:50

-OK.

-OK.

-Bon chance encore.

0:14:500:14:52

Yeah, whatever that was.

0:14:520:14:53

So with their French foraging fires reignited,

0:14:530:14:57

our daring dealers throw themselves back into the race.

0:14:570:15:00

They've both got plenty of cash to spend,

0:15:000:15:02

and Devilish is quick to spot a set of oyster dishes.

0:15:020:15:06

Bonjour, I'm David.

0:15:060:15:07

-Bonjour.

-I'm David.

-Thank you.

-Nice to meet you.

0:15:070:15:10

Do you speak English?

0:15:100:15:12

-A little.

-Oh, good. Good.

-Tres peu.

0:15:120:15:14

Does that mean a little? Excellent! OK, I speak no French.

0:15:140:15:17

-Can we do English?

-Yes.

-Let's do English. OK.

0:15:170:15:20

-50 euros. Tout le ensemble.

-50 euros all in.

0:15:200:15:24

I'm just going to be reasonably impressive here.

0:15:240:15:27

Un, deux, trois, quatre, cinq, six.

0:15:270:15:30

-Six piece.

-Six piece.

0:15:300:15:32

How about, get this, this is going to be

0:15:320:15:34

so good you are going to be blown away.

0:15:340:15:36

You are going to be amazed. 30 euros.

0:15:360:15:39

-No.

-HE LAUGHS

0:15:390:15:41

Eh? What's gone wrong? What's happening?

0:15:410:15:44

30? 35.

0:15:440:15:46

-35... Yes.

-Yes. 35?

-Yeah.

0:15:460:15:49

-You know, you don't need to speak any lingo, do you?

-Yes.

0:15:490:15:52

THEY LAUGH

0:15:520:15:54

So the oyster dishes cost David £28.69.

0:15:540:15:57

Though he's a bit baffled at the preceding events.

0:15:570:16:00

You know, I can safely say

0:16:000:16:02

I have absolutely no idea what just happened.

0:16:020:16:06

Somehow I now own this really interesting set.

0:16:060:16:10

It's bright, it's breezy, it's cheerful,

0:16:100:16:13

it's really out there and wild and wacky. Majolica. I love majolica.

0:16:130:16:17

Designed for scoffing oysters.

0:16:170:16:19

And you know what? At 35 euros, that is fabulous.

0:16:190:16:24

Or as we say in France - wunderbar!

0:16:240:16:27

Oh, dear! He's not quite fluent yet, is he?!

0:16:270:16:30

Across the market, his hawk-eyed opponent has been

0:16:300:16:33

prowling for profits, and she's spotted a leather suitcase.

0:16:330:16:36

I think even I could get all my clothes for holiday in here.

0:16:360:16:39

I'll see if I can talk to the guy that owns it.

0:16:390:16:42

Excusez-moi, monsieur. Votre dernier prix, monsieur?

0:16:420:16:46

Soixante quinze.

0:16:490:16:52

Soixante quinze, that's 75.

0:16:520:16:56

75 euros.

0:16:560:16:58

-70 euros?

-OK.

0:16:580:16:59

Merci, monsieur.

0:16:590:17:01

That's just over £49 for the suitcase,

0:17:010:17:05

and a fifth buy for The Hawk.

0:17:050:17:06

This is a beautiful, quality object. But it has lots of uses.

0:17:080:17:11

If you don't want to fill it with clothes and go on your holiday,

0:17:110:17:15

you could use it as a small coffee table. It's just a decorating piece.

0:17:150:17:19

It needs a little bit of repair and lots of what they call in France

0:17:190:17:22

cire. Or polish, wax.

0:17:220:17:25

Well, David, as you can see, I'm on the case.

0:17:250:17:28

You might as well just pack it in.

0:17:280:17:30

Ooh. Fighting talk from The Hawk!

0:17:300:17:32

So our daring duo are even-stevens now with five buys each,

0:17:320:17:36

but as the end of the market approaches,

0:17:360:17:38

they're both looking for one final item.

0:17:380:17:41

Something that will not only net them a prodigious profit,

0:17:410:17:44

but also fits the bill for their inter-dealer challenge.

0:17:440:17:47

Caroline's on the hunt for something with an Asian flair,

0:17:470:17:50

and she's spotted a likely contender.

0:17:500:17:52

Excusez moi, monsieur.

0:17:520:17:54

IN FRENCH:

0:17:540:17:57

Merci!

0:18:150:18:17

The Hawk sweet talks her way to another discount

0:18:170:18:21

and seals the deal at £65.57.

0:18:210:18:23

How cool is this? I just love it.

0:18:270:18:30

1980s. I'm going to do a bit of research on the designer.

0:18:300:18:34

But it has been sold in Paris and it's great.

0:18:340:18:37

A little tip for those of you that are looking to buy vintage stuff.

0:18:370:18:41

Look where you would expect damage - under the arms, sometimes staining

0:18:410:18:45

under the arms with deodorant or perspiration, it's not a good thing.

0:18:450:18:49

This is just about mint condition.

0:18:490:18:51

MUSIC: Groove Is In The Heart by Deee-Lite

0:18:510:18:54

And of course our fashionista of the fine arts

0:18:540:18:57

can't resist a few model moves.

0:18:570:18:59

# Groove is in the heart... #

0:18:590:19:02

So The Hawk completes her challenge with an Oriental pattern jacket.

0:19:020:19:05

But her archrival is still on the hunt for his own

0:19:050:19:09

piece of collectible couture!

0:19:090:19:11

I still haven't bought any vintage clothing.

0:19:110:19:14

So I've now got to focus and find myself a little bit of vintage chic.

0:19:140:19:19

MUSIC: Dedicated Follower of Fashion by The Kinks

0:19:190:19:24

Looking good! And it's your colour. Mmm!

0:19:400:19:43

But David decides the jacket isn't for him

0:19:430:19:46

and with time running out to make his final purchase,

0:19:460:19:49

he decides to give the designer handbags a once over.

0:19:490:19:52

Well, Louis Vuitton. I mean, such a designer make.

0:19:520:19:57

-It's a copy.

-That's a copy?

-Yes.

-Ah, interesting.

0:19:570:20:01

-This is original.

-Original? Oh, my gosh!

0:20:010:20:03

If I was to buy that, how much would that be for me?

0:20:030:20:06

-It would be 100 euros.

-100 euros? OK.

0:20:080:20:10

I've got to tell you, if I buy this and it turns out to be a fake,

0:20:100:20:13

I'll just have to destroy it. So that's a risk.

0:20:130:20:16

I'd take a chance on that. Can it be 70 euros?

0:20:160:20:20

Shall we say oui?

0:20:230:20:24

-Just for you.

-Merci, monsieur.

0:20:240:20:27

So Devilish seals the deal at 80 euros,

0:20:270:20:31

which converts to £65.58.

0:20:310:20:34

Well, I think I've risen to the challenge.

0:20:340:20:36

And the challenge was - buy some vintage clothing.

0:20:360:20:39

Well, it's not quite clothing but it's vintage and it's high-end.

0:20:390:20:42

A Louis Vuitton handbag.

0:20:420:20:44

Now, although I'm mega confident that this really is an original,

0:20:440:20:48

of course I will delve deeper.

0:20:480:20:50

And if it turns out that I'm wrong, and I could be, then that

0:20:500:20:54

object suddenly becomes not worth 80 euros, it's literally worth nothing

0:20:540:20:58

and should be thrown away.

0:20:580:21:01

That's a bit of a gamble from Devilish,

0:21:010:21:04

and with that, both our expat experts decide to call it a day.

0:21:040:21:08

Let's tot up their totals.

0:21:080:21:09

David and Caroline each arrived in Paris with a budget of £750.

0:21:110:21:16

David leaves with six purchases costing £385.26.

0:21:160:21:22

Caroline also did six deals, but she's spent a bit less,

0:21:220:21:26

at just £340.16.

0:21:260:21:28

Before our duo head back to Blighty,

0:21:290:21:32

they grab the chance to check out each other's wares.

0:21:320:21:35

Well, David, the spoils of war, here they are.

0:21:350:21:38

Doesn't that look joyous!

0:21:380:21:39

It does. It looks

0:21:390:21:41

an extraordinary, eclectic mix of everything.

0:21:410:21:45

Madness, I would suggest to you. It looks brilliant.

0:21:450:21:48

-I tell you what, I'm in love with your boat.

-Are you?

0:21:480:21:51

I think that is so naff and dreadful, it's fantastic.

0:21:510:21:55

-And I love these.

-Yes.

-Oysters. Do you like oysters?

0:21:550:21:58

No, I've had some terrible experiences with oysters.

0:21:580:22:01

-Oh, have you, David?

-Dreadful experiences.

0:22:010:22:03

You'll have to tell me some other time.

0:22:030:22:05

You don't want to know.

0:22:050:22:06

-So, the challenge.

-Yes.

-You've risen to it.

0:22:060:22:08

I certainly have. There you go. It's not clothing but it's vintage.

0:22:080:22:12

I have achieved the challenge.

0:22:120:22:15

I can see that you have failed miserably.

0:22:150:22:19

Well, David, no. You need to look closer, don't you.

0:22:190:22:22

There ain't anything Japanese or Chinese there, baby.

0:22:220:22:24

-There was a bit of Oriental and a bit of vintage.

-Where?

0:22:240:22:28

-Look at the motif.

-Unbelievable!

-Clever or what?

0:22:280:22:32

Too clever for your own good. Too clever.

0:22:320:22:35

-I was chuffed to bits with that.

-All right, you've done it as well.

0:22:350:22:38

-And it looks great on.

-OK.

0:22:380:22:39

-Shall we get back to old Blighty?

-Let's.

0:22:390:22:41

Are we going to do the train or shall we do the boat?

0:22:410:22:44

Oh, let's take the boat.

0:22:440:22:45

-I tell you what, you take the boat and I'll do the train. Bye!

-Bye!

0:22:450:22:48

Now our dealers need to steady their nerves and head home

0:22:500:22:53

to plan the next phase of their profit quest.

0:22:530:22:56

They must find buyers for all their Parisian treasures,

0:22:560:22:59

and call on all their expertise to secure top drawer prices,

0:22:590:23:02

and make as much profit as possible for their chosen charities.

0:23:020:23:06

David's back at Devilish HQ near Durham,

0:23:080:23:11

but he's left his heart in France.

0:23:110:23:13

I can honestly tell you that was the most fun I've had on

0:23:130:23:17

a buying trip abroad ever.

0:23:170:23:19

It was just a perfect trip. This clock blows my mind.

0:23:190:23:24

It's just amazing.

0:23:240:23:26

Not quite sure where I'm going to go with it yet,

0:23:260:23:29

so my brain is whirring overtime.

0:23:290:23:31

A couple of objects I know exactly where I'm going to.

0:23:310:23:35

Well, we've got the oyster dishes and the fish pot here.

0:23:350:23:38

So I'm heading to a fish restaurant to offer them

0:23:380:23:42

both objects. Now what about that brass boot pull?

0:23:420:23:46

I'm thinking of top-end cobblers.

0:23:460:23:48

People that make really expensive shoes

0:23:480:23:51

would love that as a shop display.

0:23:510:23:53

Onto the bag. Well, this is always going to split opinions, isn't it?

0:23:530:23:57

I've been up almost all night and I've done all my own checks

0:23:570:24:01

and I'm pretty confident that this really is the real McCoy.

0:24:010:24:05

We'll double-check but so far, I'm pretty happy

0:24:050:24:08

and very excited.

0:24:080:24:09

He also needs to find a buyer for his light fittings.

0:24:090:24:13

Over in East Yorkshire, The Hawk is assessing her treasures.

0:24:130:24:16

Now I'm back home, the things I bought in Paris

0:24:160:24:19

have not disappointed me.

0:24:190:24:21

This little chair is great.

0:24:210:24:23

And I'm thinking along the lines of doll, teddy dealers for this.

0:24:230:24:27

Or even collectors.

0:24:270:24:29

Now, the boat is a very different kettle of fish.

0:24:290:24:32

The person that buys this is not going to be an ordinary Joe Bloggs.

0:24:320:24:36

This stick stand is great. I want to find a smart cane, umbrella dealer.

0:24:360:24:43

This would look great on their stand in a very smart antiques fair.

0:24:430:24:48

And what else did I...? Uh, yeah. This. This wonderful jacket.

0:24:480:24:53

If I can get it off my back, this will sell easily.

0:24:530:24:56

It epitomises all that is 1980s - chic, colourful, Parisian.

0:24:560:25:02

I can't wait to mix with the fashionistas

0:25:020:25:05

that are going to buy this.

0:25:050:25:06

Caroline also needs to sell her leather suitcase

0:25:060:25:09

and wooden hat brim mould.

0:25:090:25:11

Our two brave profiteers need all their strength

0:25:110:25:14

and ingenuity as they get their selling sprees under way.

0:25:140:25:17

Every last penny of profit counts, and remember,

0:25:170:25:20

until they've shaken on it, no deal is ever sealed.

0:25:200:25:23

In Barnard Castle, David gets straight down to business,

0:25:250:25:28

and takes that designer handbag to show Clare,

0:25:280:25:31

owner of a local fashion boutique.

0:25:310:25:33

It's nice to get the opportunity to handle something like this.

0:25:330:25:37

-This is just nice.

-You just see that. It says, "AR1000."

0:25:370:25:43

AR stands for France. And 1000 is the date code.

0:25:430:25:47

The first two numbers, 10, is the month.

0:25:470:25:51

And the last two is the year. So that was made in October 2000.

0:25:510:25:56

This is just nice. I mean, how do you define it?

0:25:560:25:59

It's the quality and width of the strap. It's the stitching.

0:25:590:26:04

-It's the wear. It's the smell. It's the touch.

-Yeah.

0:26:040:26:09

I think I can tempt you. I think you are going to really like it. 125.

0:26:090:26:14

-£125?! I genuinely do believe it's the real thing.

-Yeah.

0:26:140:26:19

-But I have a figure in my mind.

-What is it?

0:26:190:26:22

-75.

-75?

-Yeah.

0:26:220:26:24

-No! 120.

-I will be pushed to 80 and consider ownership.

0:26:240:26:30

£100. That will give me 20-odd pounds profit.

0:26:300:26:34

You've shown me something lovely and it is something I would like to own.

0:26:340:26:38

-£85.

-Oh, my goodness gracious!

0:26:380:26:43

I can't leave with the bag.

0:26:430:26:45

We're just going to play games now and just call it 90, aren't we?

0:26:450:26:48

Go on. Clare, you are an absolute...

0:26:480:26:50

-nightmare.

-Thank you!

0:26:500:26:54

Yes, David has certainly earned his dealing dues there,

0:26:540:26:57

and kicks off his profits by £24.42.

0:26:570:27:00

Over in Harrogate,

0:27:020:27:04

Caroline is about to undertake a fashion challenge of her own.

0:27:040:27:07

I'm here seeing if my wonderful piece of Parisian chic

0:27:070:27:11

is going to go down well in uber cool Montpellier Street, Harrogate.

0:27:110:27:16

Wish me luck.

0:27:160:27:18

MUSIC: Clothes Show Theme

0:27:180:27:20

Oh, this is turning into the Clothes Show!

0:27:200:27:22

Our fashionista spent nearly £65 on the jacket,

0:27:220:27:24

time to unveil it to vintage clothing dealer Linda.

0:27:240:27:27

Hi. How are you?

0:27:270:27:29

-I'm fine, thank you.

-I've brought a little something to show you.

0:27:290:27:32

-All the way from Paris.

-Oh, that's nice!

0:27:320:27:35

Isn't that lovely! 1980s. Beautiful.

0:27:350:27:37

Marina Sithon pour Kamosho, which is a Japanese make.

0:27:370:27:43

From Paris. I think it's hardly been worn, you know.

0:27:430:27:47

-It's in really good condition.

-You can always tell with the cuffs.

0:27:470:27:52

And the neck and things. Yeah. No.

0:27:520:27:55

There's no crease in there so it's been hung very well.

0:27:550:27:59

I'm going to show you it at its best. Wait there.

0:27:590:28:02

-So, Linda, what do you think?

-I think it's fantastic.

0:28:060:28:10

Would you be able to pay 130 for it?

0:28:100:28:14

Um, I'd go 110.

0:28:140:28:17

-Cos I have to resell it.

-Yeah.

0:28:170:28:19

Could you go 120 and split the difference?

0:28:190:28:23

Um, yes, I think so, because I think that will sell.

0:28:230:28:27

Thank you very much, Linda. Thank you.

0:28:270:28:30

Do I have to take it off now?

0:28:300:28:32

Yes, you do!

0:28:320:28:33

So The Hawk says a sad goodbye to the jacket

0:28:330:28:36

but secures a very colourful £54.43 profit.

0:28:360:28:41

She also finds a buyer for her leather suitcase,

0:28:410:28:44

selling it to an antiques dealer in Harrogate for £90.

0:28:440:28:48

Fantastic, thank you very much.

0:28:480:28:50

Packing herself a £40.82 profit.

0:28:500:28:53

Now, Devilish is a big fan of keeping things local,

0:28:550:28:58

but now he's leaving the safe confines of Barnard Castle behind.

0:28:580:29:02

MUSIC: Thomas The Tank Engine Theme

0:29:020:29:05

Well, I've sold the designer handbag.

0:29:050:29:08

But all of my other Parisian purchases have got London

0:29:080:29:12

written all over them. So here I am.

0:29:120:29:15

I'm jumping on the train and heading south to maximise those profits.

0:29:150:29:19

Well, David's thinking bright lights, big city, big profits!

0:29:200:29:24

While he gets on the train, Caroline's got her glad rags on.

0:29:240:29:28

All in the pursuit of a deal!

0:29:280:29:30

Here we go.

0:29:300:29:32

She's brought her nautical bar to a party thrown

0:29:320:29:34

by her friends Pip and Barry.

0:29:340:29:37

Welcome aboard. Can I offer you a drink?

0:29:370:29:40

And having spent £55 getting it rewired and another

0:29:400:29:44

£10 on cocktail supplies, her spend stands at nearly £188.

0:29:440:29:49

Here's hoping it's smooth sailing.

0:29:490:29:50

MUSIC: Club Tropicana by Wham

0:29:500:29:53

1950s. Absolutely fantastic. I bought it in Paris. Saint-Ouen.

0:29:530:29:57

A little quartier of Paris that specialises in rather retro things.

0:29:570:30:02

-Yes.

-Baby, baby.

-Yeah, I like it. I like it.

0:30:020:30:05

How much is it?

0:30:050:30:07

Well, I was hoping for 325.

0:30:070:30:10

-150 quid.

-Oh! Oh!

0:30:100:30:13

-You wound me.

-It's half a boat.

-You wound me, Barry.

0:30:130:30:16

Half a boat is better than none. I like the look of it.

0:30:160:30:19

I'll offer you £200.

0:30:190:30:21

Just because I'm a kind-hearted Yorkshire lass, I'm going

0:30:210:30:26

to let you have it at 295.

0:30:260:30:28

-We will do a deal. We will do a deal.

-295!

0:30:280:30:32

Barry. Come on, let's party on.

0:30:320:30:35

Yes. She's done it!

0:30:370:30:39

Caroline walks away with a fizzing profit of over £107!

0:30:390:30:44

While she heads home to sleep off her success, David's preparing

0:30:440:30:47

to take London by storm, and where better to start than the West End.

0:30:470:30:52

This is Mayfair.

0:30:540:30:56

My gosh, one of the poshest areas

0:30:560:30:59

and one of the finest restaurants in the city.

0:30:590:31:02

This is where the lords and the ladies of London come to dine.

0:31:020:31:07

Perfect for me.

0:31:070:31:08

MUSIC: West End Girls by Pet Shop Boys

0:31:080:31:11

So, 'Lord David' has sent his two seafood themed buys

0:31:110:31:15

ahead to the restaurant. The fish pot, which cost nearly £33,

0:31:150:31:18

and those oyster dishes, which were nearly 29.

0:31:180:31:22

Will they tingle the taste buds of owner, Gavin, and head chef, Stefan?

0:31:220:31:26

Are you delighted to see my wares, Gavin?

0:31:260:31:29

-Yes, well, they are different. Unusual.

-Yeah.

0:31:290:31:33

-This is very much...

-Oyster dishes are normally plain.

0:31:330:31:37

But I don't think you've ever been described as a plain person, Gavin.

0:31:370:31:42

No, true.

0:31:420:31:44

-True.

-This is majolica.

0:31:440:31:47

So it's that typical, very bright, colourful pottery.

0:31:470:31:51

No fantastic age to it but very lovely. Hand decorated. Hand potted.

0:31:510:31:57

Are they the kind of things that you might use,

0:31:570:31:59

obviously for special occasions?

0:31:590:32:01

It's a bit of a pass on these, I'm afraid.

0:32:010:32:04

-It doesn't really fit with what we do.

-OK. OK.

0:32:040:32:07

-To be absolutely honest.

-OK.

0:32:070:32:09

It's OK. What about the fish pot?

0:32:090:32:11

-The fish pot.

-Yeah.

-That's more interesting.

0:32:110:32:14

-That's much more interesting.

-OK.

-Tell me a bit about this.

0:32:140:32:18

-Bought from the same fair.

-Yes.

0:32:180:32:21

From the same stall.

0:32:210:32:23

In sunny Paris.

0:32:230:32:25

-I love the decoration. Love the fish.

-I do too.

0:32:250:32:29

I'm just sort of interested where it might have come from.

0:32:290:32:32

It's certainly Continental.

0:32:320:32:34

Stefan, this is from your part of the world here.

0:32:340:32:36

This is taking you down memory lane, isn't it?

0:32:360:32:39

Yes, a bit further south than where I live, I guess.

0:32:390:32:42

But, yeah, it's good. It's good for Gavin's place.

0:32:420:32:48

I think we can find a use for it, you know.

0:32:480:32:50

-£60.

-£60?

-Yeah.

0:32:500:32:53

What do you think?

0:32:540:32:57

-For £50 is nice.

-He likes the sound of 50.

0:32:570:33:00

We'll give the man 55. He is upset enough about the...

0:33:000:33:03

-We'll give him 55.

-Are you happy?

0:33:030:33:06

Is that a deal? Fantastic.

0:33:060:33:07

-Thank you, chaps.

-You're welcome.

-Absolute pleasure.

0:33:070:33:09

Well, he may have only shifted one of his items,

0:33:090:33:12

but that's a profit of just over £22 on the fish dish.

0:33:120:33:15

So at the halfway stage, let's take a look at the numbers.

0:33:150:33:18

David has so far struck two deals, and made a modest profit of £46.63.

0:33:200:33:27

But Caroline has snatched an early lead, with three sales made

0:33:270:33:33

and a profit of £202.30.

0:33:330:33:35

It may be far from level pegging but with four items

0:33:370:33:40

still to sell, David isn't rolling over any time soon!

0:33:400:33:43

Between appointments,

0:33:430:33:45

he's making the most of his trip to the capital.

0:33:450:33:47

MUSIC: London Calling by The Clash

0:33:470:33:49

But it's not all sightseeing and selfies,

0:33:490:33:51

David is here on the hunt for some top London-size profits.

0:33:510:33:54

Next stop - Soho.

0:33:540:33:55

You're just not going to believe this place.

0:33:570:34:00

I've only recently discovered it. Right in the middle of Soho.

0:34:000:34:04

It's mind-blowing.

0:34:040:34:05

And they sell items, as you can see, just like mine.

0:34:050:34:10

But by the thousands.

0:34:100:34:12

I've come to see the owner, Ronald. He's upstairs in the workshop.

0:34:120:34:15

Let's go and find him.

0:34:150:34:16

Crikey, this is a tight fit, but full of treasure.

0:34:170:34:22

David's Parisian lights cost him over £65. Time to turn on the charm.

0:34:220:34:27

I knew I'd find you in here, Ronald.

0:34:280:34:30

-Hello, David. Nice to see you again.

-Good to see you as well.

0:34:300:34:33

-Are you busy?

-Yes, we are fairly busy at the moment.

0:34:330:34:36

Just doing a lot of restoration for one or two important buildings.

0:34:360:34:40

-They are quite interesting.

-I knew I would grab his attention.

0:34:400:34:44

Now, I bought these in Paris. I'm dating them circa 1900.

0:34:440:34:49

I want to try and sell these to you, Ronald, obviously.

0:34:490:34:52

The only question is, what are you asking for them?

0:34:520:34:56

I was thinking 250. Is that too much?

0:34:560:34:59

Well, in the condition, I...

0:34:590:35:02

We would have thought we could compromise and said,

0:35:020:35:06

provisionally, a couple of hundred. I would be perfectly happy.

0:35:060:35:10

Cos I've got a lot of renovation to do.

0:35:100:35:12

If we agreed 200, I'm happy with that.

0:35:120:35:14

-We've got a deal.

-Good.

-And I suppose you want a cheque now.

0:35:140:35:17

I want a cheque before you change your mind.

0:35:170:35:20

Devilish nearly doubles his money,

0:35:200:35:22

and walks away with a glowing profit of £134.43.

0:35:220:35:26

Next on his profit quest is that clock sign,

0:35:280:35:31

and he's brought it to the boutiques of West London.

0:35:310:35:34

Well, what a lovely day to try and sell a clock face.

0:35:340:35:37

Here I am on Church Street in Marylebone, London.

0:35:370:35:40

The perfect place to sell something like this. It's very industrial.

0:35:400:35:44

It's architectural. It's very designer-y.

0:35:440:35:47

There are humongous amounts of shops down the street

0:35:470:35:49

and I'm going to go and see them all.

0:35:490:35:52

Until I find someone to give me some money.

0:35:520:35:54

David pounds the West London pavements for the next few hours

0:35:570:36:00

but it seems no-one's buying!

0:36:000:36:02

Oh, dear.

0:36:020:36:04

I can't believe it. No, no, no, no, no.

0:36:060:36:10

All the way up and down the street. Now the clouds are coming in.

0:36:100:36:13

I'm going to get drenched. What an ending to a horrific time.

0:36:130:36:16

MUSIC: Why Does It Always Rain On Me by Travis

0:36:160:36:22

The heavens open on poor Harper and he bids a hasty retreat.

0:36:220:36:26

Having paid over £184 for the sign, if he doesn't find a buyer

0:36:260:36:31

it could lose him today's Put Your Money crown.

0:36:310:36:34

Caroline has also been braving the elements up north.

0:36:340:36:37

She's on the rainy Yorkshire coast

0:36:370:36:39

and has sold her petit Parisian chair to doll collector Judy.

0:36:390:36:43

-Brilliant, thank you very much.

-Thank you very much.

0:36:430:36:46

Pocketing herself another £18.11 profit.

0:36:460:36:49

And now she's come south to Reading with her hat brim mould.

0:36:510:36:54

She's hoping milliner Jane will give her a good return

0:36:540:36:57

on the £16 purchase price.

0:36:570:36:59

Hello, Jane, how are you?

0:36:590:37:02

-Very well, thank you.

-Do you want to see this hat brim mould?

0:37:020:37:04

Gosh, yes, I do. Cos you know what I've been using, don't you?

0:37:040:37:08

-What is that?

-A bit of polystyrene.

0:37:080:37:10

It's like a picture frame.

0:37:100:37:12

This is a rimmed hat I made from it.

0:37:120:37:14

That's how I moulded the brim for that.

0:37:140:37:16

-Right.

-But then I had to wire it and twist it because it isn't oval.

0:37:160:37:20

-Right.

-It's not a head shape.

-No. I've got something that is.

0:37:200:37:23

That is absolutely just what I wanted!

0:37:230:37:27

-It's beautiful!

-Isn't it gorgeous?!

0:37:270:37:29

And it's a nice shape. I like that.

0:37:290:37:31

You stretch your material, whatever you are using, over the hat wet.

0:37:310:37:35

You stretch it over and you pin it, you stretch it

0:37:350:37:37

and you pin it till you get the shape you want.

0:37:370:37:39

Then you iron it and dry it on the mould.

0:37:390:37:42

Then let it set.

0:37:420:37:44

I think this dates from probably 1910-1920. Would you agree?

0:37:440:37:47

I would say this is coming out of the Victorian period.

0:37:470:37:51

-Not quite into the full-blown Edwardian.

-Yes.

0:37:510:37:54

-It's on that cusp.

-Yes. Yeah.

0:37:540:37:56

-This, I don't know what you paid for this...

-Nothing, I was given it.

0:37:560:38:00

Gosh! This is a bit more expensive than nothing.

0:38:000:38:04

What about 75?

0:38:040:38:06

-Yes.

-Brilliant!

0:38:080:38:10

Well, that was easy, and The Hawk makes a profit of £58.61.

0:38:100:38:15

More than quadrupling her money!

0:38:150:38:18

And she crosses the finish line when she sells her 19th-century

0:38:180:38:21

umbrella stand to a smart gentleman's outfitters in London.

0:38:210:38:26

105 and you've got yourself a deal.

0:38:260:38:29

For you...

0:38:290:38:31

Thank you.

0:38:310:38:32

Adding a final £55.82 to her balance sheet.

0:38:320:38:38

Devilish needs to pull his selling socks up

0:38:380:38:40

if he's going to catch his rival!

0:38:400:38:42

So I've brought my boot pull right to the heart of Mayfair.

0:38:420:38:46

To buy a pair of boots or a pair of shoes to fit your feet

0:38:460:38:50

absolutely perfectly here will cost you

0:38:500:38:55

about 500 times the price I paid for my boot pull.

0:38:550:39:01

And as that was just over £8, we're talking upwards of £4,000.

0:39:010:39:07

Jonathan, very, very good to meet you.

0:39:070:39:11

How long would it take to make a pair of shoes?

0:39:110:39:13

If someone was to walk in the door we quote about six to eight months.

0:39:130:39:17

We have to make a pair of lasts...

0:39:170:39:19

What is a pair of lasts? Is it like a mould?

0:39:190:39:22

-This is a pair of lasts.

-OK.

0:39:220:39:24

This is made from the measurements we take from each individual

0:39:240:39:27

-customer's foot. David Niven.

-Right.

0:39:270:39:31

-I didn't meet him myself but Frank Sinatra.

-Frank Sinatra!

0:39:310:39:34

By the look of those, Jonathan,

0:39:340:39:37

it looks like he's had several pairs of shoes made.

0:39:370:39:40

I think they were fairly well used.

0:39:400:39:42

I'm hoping to interest you,

0:39:420:39:43

to impress you maybe with...I've called it a boot pull.

0:39:430:39:48

-It's a boot jack.

-Boot jack, OK.

0:39:480:39:52

It's designed obviously to get the heel of your boot in.

0:39:520:39:56

OK, so you step on it. That's right.

0:39:560:39:58

You step on it.

0:39:580:40:00

You stick your heel in there.

0:40:000:40:01

It helps you to pull it off.

0:40:010:40:02

It's quite smooth. It doesn't damage the shoe.

0:40:020:40:05

So it's a useful thing to keep in the hallway?

0:40:050:40:08

-Yeah. And it's attractive, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:40:080:40:10

Age wise, I mean, I'm guessing it's probably 50 years old.

0:40:100:40:13

-It's a good quality thing. There is no doubt about it.

-Give me a price.

0:40:130:40:18

OK, £70.

0:40:180:40:19

That is not unreasonable. I think you've got yourself your £70.

0:40:190:40:23

-Fantastic.

-Congratulations.

0:40:230:40:24

So our Durham dandy netted himself a well-heeled profit of £61.80.

0:40:240:40:31

That ends David's London jaunt on a high, and he finally finds

0:40:310:40:35

a buyer for those oyster dishes too, selling them to a private collector

0:40:350:40:38

back in Barnard Castle for £40, making him £11.31 profit.

0:40:380:40:43

So now the end is finally in sight.

0:40:450:40:48

Caroline was out in the lead but did David manage to find

0:40:480:40:51

a buyer for his clock sign

0:40:510:40:53

and snatch the trophy at the last minute?

0:40:530:40:56

All will soon be revealed!

0:40:560:40:58

Both our experts took £750 worth of euros over to Paris.

0:40:590:41:04

David bought six items and spent £385.26.

0:41:040:41:10

Caroline also bought six items, and including the restoration costs

0:41:130:41:16

for the bar, she spent £405.16.

0:41:160:41:20

But what about the profits?

0:41:200:41:22

All the money that Caroline and David have made

0:41:220:41:25

from today's challenge will go to charities of their choice.

0:41:250:41:28

So the wait is over, it's finally time to reveal who is today's

0:41:280:41:31

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Champion.

0:41:310:41:35

Hello, David.

0:41:350:41:36

-Never mind hello. Bonjour.

-Bonjour. Mais oui!

0:41:360:41:40

Oh, hello! How was it for you?

0:41:400:41:42

It was great. It would be, wouldn't it? I'm such a Francophile.

0:41:420:41:46

You are. You just blend in like a native, don't you?

0:41:460:41:49

My favourite item was a ship bar. A bar in the shape of a ship.

0:41:490:41:54

-It was brilliant.

-And I did well with it.

0:41:540:41:56

-I'm really pleased with that.

-Fantastic.

-What about you?

My Parisian trip took me to London with that funny little brass

0:41:590:42:03

-boot pull.

-Oh, gosh.

-Exactly. That took me on a journey.

0:42:030:42:06

A memorable journey.

0:42:060:42:08

It's been a brill-o! Have you made loads of money?

0:42:080:42:10

I think, with my added advantage of a little bit of parlez-vous Francais...

0:42:100:42:16

-The lingo.

-Yeah. I think I'm quietly confident of this one.

0:42:160:42:20

Are you really? Do you think you've got me?

0:42:200:42:22

-I think I have got you.

-Is that your prediction?

0:42:220:42:24

-Yeah, be afraid. Be very afraid.

-I'm not afraid at all.

0:42:240:42:27

-OK, are you ready?

-Yes. Un...

0:42:270:42:29

-Deux...

-Trois.

0:42:290:42:31

-Oh, no, you've done it!

-Oh, yes!

0:42:310:42:35

You cheeky little monkey, madam.

0:42:350:42:37

-Ooh!

-How do you say congratulations in French?

0:42:370:42:40

Felicitations.

0:42:400:42:41

-Felicitations.

-Merci, David.

0:42:410:42:44

So just £65 in it!

0:42:440:42:47

David did sell his clock sign to an antiques enthusiast

0:42:470:42:50

in Barnard Castle, but at £200 it only made him

0:42:500:42:53

just £15.57 profit. Not quite enough to catch his rival.

0:42:530:42:59

My French is absolutely diabolical and you know what,

0:42:590:43:03

I really should have tried harder at school.

0:43:030:43:06

No surprises here. I really did expect to win this one.

0:43:060:43:09

Speaking the lingo really does help.

0:43:090:43:13

David gets another chance to take The Hawk down tomorrow,

0:43:130:43:16

when they go into battle again at an antiques fair in Kent.

0:43:160:43:20

Wow, what a good-looking fellow, don't you think?

0:43:200:43:23

David Harper and Caroline Hawley head to Paris, where Caroline hits the ground running with fluent French, and they challenge each other to a fashion face-off.
