It's the nation's favourite antiques experts, with £200 each,
a classic car, and a goal to scour Britain for antiques.
To make the biggest profit at auction,
but it's no mean feat, there'll be worthy winners, and valiant losers.
-So, will it be the high road to glory?
Or the slow road to disaster?
This is the Antiques Road Trip!
It's the third leg of our Antiques Road Trip, with treasure hunters
David Barby and Margie Cooper, in their open top, 1979,
Mercedes 350 SL,
and with two wins in a row, David is looking for a hat-trick.
I always like to get a little sparkler.
But I don't know, it's all the luck of the draw.
David has a really proved himself
the master of ceramics on this road trip, not just once...
All finished at 240?
Oh, my goodness me.
That was amazing.
And travelling companion, Margie, is getting to know his wicked ways.
You just can't trust him.
He does this terribly puzzled and worried look,
and he's got an absolute fabulous little item,
that makes him a really good profit.
Margie has slowly but surely been growing her cash
over the last two auctions, which means she now has £294.40 to spend.
David, on the other hand, has more than doubled his money,
giving him a whopping £485.60 to splurge.
The route for the week takes our road trippers from Alnwick in Northumberland
through the beautiful English countryside, to the final destination of Lincoln,
200 miles away.
But today's trip begins in Bridlington on the coast,
before heading inland to the auction in Sheffield, the home of snooker.
Bridlington is a quaint seaside town,
bringing back some happy memories for David.
Do you know, this sort of holiday resort takes me back to
when I was very young, in the 1950...
You were probably building sand castles here in 1643,
when the Royal troops landed to fight in the English Civil War.
But the only battle David faces today is with the Mercedes.
Right, now then, which is your shop?
-This is so difficult, getting out of this car.
-Now, which is your shop?
-Yours is up there, isn't it? The Georgian Tea Rooms.
-And mine's here. All the very best.
-Is that sincere?
It's always sincere.
The first stop for David is Priory Antiques.
-David Barby. You're?
Can you point me in the direction of somewhere, let's say silver?
-Do you have any Silver?
-Yes, we've got some...
some nice silver buttons in here.
Quite pretty. Yes. Yes, they're quite pretty.
-Have you got an eyeglass I could use?
-Yes, I have.
-Oh, wonderful, thank you very much.
-Now, what's David up to, here?
Silver is Margie's speciality.
Could he be playing her at her own game? Sneaky.
Right, these are quite small, they are probably blouse buttons.
They are for a lady. And they have got a female design on them.
I think the female is playing a lyre, so very Grecian, isn't it?
-What's the price on those?
-Well, they are 70.
It's got to be a bit less than that.
They are very, very small buttons.
-I was thinking around about £40.
-What about 50?
Can I say 45? Split the difference.
-That was quick.
-It was, wasn't it?
Can you take me somewhere else? Show me another object.
Nearby, at the Georgian Tea Rooms,
Margie has found some silver of her own.
Two Edwardian scent bottles, at £35 for the pair.
So, how cheap would those be?
I think, considering I did buy them at a car boot sale,
there's a little bit of money in it for me.
-So, 20 quid, I'd walk away with a bit of a profit.
-A deal. Thank you.
-So, we'll put those there, and I'll move on.
Another quick purchase, most unlike Margie.
Little pally pencils that...
they collapse. They're great.
But look at this one, it's a miniature one. It's £19!
And I really like it.
Miniature propelling pencils were popular with Victorians.
They could be attached to charm bracelets for a lady
out shopping, or even used with a dance card.
And would you believe it? Here is a card that would have been marked.
And I've actually never seen one of these.
So there's a list of all the dances,
and then each dance would have somebody's name.
And I think this has been... Let me have a quick look.
Yeah, somebody's put Spiderman on there!
That's what they look like, and I've never seen one of those before.
I'm trying to work out what the one step is.
I don't know, absolutely no idea.
You certainly don't see it in any of the modern dance programs.
Yeah, I quite like that, but I'm not convinced it's Victorian.
-Well, I could do it for 15, and throw in this card...
..to make up a package. 12 at the very best. 12 at the death.
Yeah, not ten?
You're amazing, you know? Absolutely amazing.
-Yeah, I know, aren't we awful?
-Hang on, let me just check my heart.
It's settled down a bit.
-Do you think I'll make a fortune?
-It is, isn't it?
-It's very exhibition, isn't it?
At £40, it's too much for the type of pottery that it is.
-A 1960s West German vase, in case you were wondering.
-My original price on that was £15.
-'Why are they whispering?'
And I'd like to keep to £15, if you don't mind?
-Don't feel under any pressure.
-Come down to 17.
It's got to be 15, I can't see it any more.
Erm, how about 16?
You're a hard woman. Really hard. Thank you very much.
Right, so that one vase, how much to I owe you?
Right, there's 45 for the buttons, and 16 for those.
I bet he'll use that "no change," line, all for the sake of a pound.
Have you some change, please, or would you strike that off?
-You're a hard man, aren't you?
-Go on then, we'll make it 60.
He got the vase for £15, after all.
Just as he's about to leave, David spots a rustic-looking garden bench.
But, with a price tag of £200, he needs to try it before he buys.
What exactly is he plotting?
-I think £60 is adequate.
-I can't come down to that.
-We'll split the difference at 65 and that's it.
-I won't say anything more.
Good for you, girl. That will shut him up!
You've had your wicked way with me.
Perish the thought!
Right, OK. 68.
My goodness me!
-There's £80, thank you.
I'll just go and get the change.
Can I have it wrapped?
Margie is also settling her account.
£10 for the propelling pencil and dance card
and £24 for the pair of scent bottles.
-Thank you very much. I'll need change, after all.
-If you give me ten...
-Just in the nick of time.
-I'm moving on.
-How are you doing?
-Have you had a purchase?
Oh, you're not going to play that worried look, are you?
-Have you spent much?
-I'm just going out here. You can come in now.
-I'm going to go in your shop.
Best of luck across there.
He's probably been in and bought all the bargains, but never mind.
I don't know what David will have bought. Something quirky!
-It's behind you!
-There's loads of things. It's really interesting.
-You've just got to think, you know.
-It's behind you!
What's going to sell well?
Oh, for the love of...
This is a funny old thing, isn't it?
Look at that! It's a very imaginative piece, isn't it?
Yes, it is. A real cartwheel from a real cart.
The only thing missing is the horse.
Ha! Thanks, Margie.
Now, go and find something David hasn't bought.
What about that Mackintosh-style oak cabinet at £65?
I could do it for 40.
-40's a good price.
-Especially with the glass -
-the bevelled glass.
-I do like the glass. It is nice, yeah.
I'm just trying to imagine, is somebody going to...?
Like it as much as you do?
The only way that you feel confident is that it becomes so cheap.
I know it sounds pathetic but a couple of pounds off 40 would help.
-Well, I'll buy it.
-Thanks a lot.
All shopped out in Bridlington, it's time for our experts to move on.
Yeah, thanks, guys. Who's going to carry that cabinet
and huge great bench off to auction, hey?
Back on the road, our experts head to Hull,
where Margie is making a pit stop
for an Humber-lievable driving experience.
You love Humber cars.
I'm not so sure I know what Humber cars look like.
Well, they're rounded.
They're so typical of the 1940s, 1950s, aren't they?
You can't think of a quality car without thinking of a Humber.
Quality cars! Here? Are you sure?
That's more like it.
This is a private collection of 28 Humber cars, owned by Alan Marshall.
-I think you'll find all the best stuff's kept in here.
-Oh, my word!
What an amazing collection!
Alan's businessman father started the collection in 1960
with a second-hand Humber and used it to deliver potatoes.
These silver dream machines, favoured by the ruling classes,
were nicknamed old faithfuls for their reliability.
By the 1920s, the company, founded by Thomas Humber of Sheffield,
had established itself as a motor car manufacturer
of the highest quality.
Its original owner was Baroness Rothschild.
This colour is called black pearl over shell grey.
-You could really have any colour you liked.
I just think it carries the land very well.
This, of course, was the debutant era of the big dresses
and high hair. Diamonds and fares.
The doors hinge backwards.
Then, what Humber did was raise the floors by about six inches
to cover the transmission tunnel,
so it allowed the ladies to walk in forwards, without having to shuffle.
And she could do a complete turn and then sit.
I was told the baroness actually used to sit at this side here.
She was quite vain and she loved to be seen by the people along the side of the road.
If you had the Pullman, this was the bees knees.
The cars were particularly popular with the Royal family.
King George VI had a fleet of 47 Humbers.
For anyone that was anyone, these were the cars to be seen in.
It was formerly the property of Edward and Mrs Simpson,
in their courting days.
-It's the only one of its type in the world that we know of.
It's called the Humber Snipe. It's a 1932 model.
Because of the couple's clandestine relationship,
this unique Royal car was ordered with a very special spec.
You can see it's got a very small back window and very dark inside.
I think you get more of an impression by sitting in
and sitting right back.
Imagine you're going around the streets of London.
-Nobody can see you in the back of the car.
Open the cupboard doors at that side.
-There's a lovely reading lamp in there.
-Oh, look at that!
A cigar lighter.
There's even a little safe-deposit box under the carpet.
I'm sitting where Mrs Simpson sat.
Fantastic, hey! Anything down...?
-Ooh, hang on!
Have you checked? I fancy myself in here with a future king.
Well, if you want to be a queen, Margie,
you'd better get accustomed to the lifestyle.
Bring your tiara with you.
I haven't brought it with me, what a shame!
Right, here we go. Not too far. I don't want to use all your petrol.
-Right, I'm ready.
-Elbow on the armrest, please.
-Elbow on the armrest.
-Hand up vertical.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Tell you what, you're very good at that!
So, Queen Margie ends the day in a slightly posher car than usual.
She always did have delusions of grandeur. Night-night, Ma'am!
It's a glorious new day for our antiques experts
and another chance for them to spend all their hoarded cash.
But someone is getting a little jumpy.
And now I'm being quite truthful with you - I'm in a panic mode.
So, I may buy the first thing I see.
-So far, David has spent £128 on three items.
Some dainty, art nouveau buttons. A Retro German vase,
and a hulking great garden seat,
leaving him with £357.60 to splash.
Margie, meanwhile, has spent £68
on a pair of silver-topped scent bottles,
a Victorian pencil and dance card, and an oak cabinet -
leaving her with £226.40 for the day ahead.
David and Margie are travelling 60 miles across country
to the next shop in Harworth,
a small town in the county of Nottinghamshire.
Here we go! There it is!
Harrison's is quite literally a warehouse full of antiques.
Surely there's something here for David,
if he can make it out of the car, that is.
-Are you trying to announce your arrival?
-Best of luck.
-See you later.
-Pleased to meet you.
-Pleased to meet you. Goodness me!
-got a lot here, haven't you?
-Quite a bit, yep.
I think I'll start on this are sort of wander through.
And, as David get into his stride,
it's not long before he's drawn to a piece of Bretby Art Pottery.
-I'll give you that for £5.
-You're not giving me it.
-I'm paying £5 for it.
-I've got another piece.
-I could have combined with that.
One of those West German vases, stands about that big.
I just thought that might add a little bit of interest.
So, David's thinking of combining this vase with his German one.
Come on, man! A fiver's hardly going to break the bank.
It's stencilled, isn't it, design?
Er, no need to rush a decision, hey?
Right, just let me continue my perambulations.
Well, food for thought then and time for a ponder and a wander.
What about a nice piece of silver?
A hallmarked vase by Walker and Hall of Birmingham.
What's the best on that?
I would allow you to have it for 60.
-What about 50?
-Meet you halfway - 55!
It's too much. And the school board?
Right, the price on that is 200.
-Produced by Orme and Sons,
one of the most respected makers of billiard tables,
this late 19th-century school board
could be a nice little earner for David.
-I know it's got the button missing on the end...
So, for that, I can knock you off £20 then.
Well, how much do you think you'd like to pay?
Could it be 120?
I would say... My lowest I can take
is 150. I'm being good to you.
That's something you don't see every day.
You've been lucky today selling that.
Oh my God, you've taken that hand so quickly.
Well, Charlotte scores on the board but Barby is still after a winning pot.
-That vase, would you throw it in with that?
-If you want me to.
Thank you very much. I'm happy. OK, lovely.
But, will they go snooker loopy for this
over at the auction in Sheffield?
Next door, Margie is eyeing up a nice pair of jugs.
Look out, look out! There's a Barby about.
-Oh, look who's coming!
Look behind you!
Excuse me, I can feel someone's presence...
-I can feel someone's presence.
-Have you finished?
-No. You must fizzle off round there.
I will do. OK.
With the opposition dispatched,
Margie can take a closer look at the set of horse pictures.
-How much are they?
I'm just going to look at this really bad one.
The pictures are of winners of the renowned St Leger's Stakes -
a horse race that has taken place in Doncaster since 1776.
This one's called...
We're learning about horseracing today. The Blue Bonnet.
Blue Bonnet by a touchdown. Winner of the St Leger in 1812.
Yeah, what do you expect?
But, darling, I think that's passed the point of no return, I think.
Got to go for these, haven't we?
Marge is taking a £40 punt on the gee-gees.
But, what are the odds on them doing well at auction?
I think you've got a good chance with those.
Do you think so? Buy two get one free really, isn't it, with that one?
It's really bad, that one.
I've they just need cleaning up.
40's the absolute...?
-That is an absolute...
-It's a steal, yeah.
-I'm not going to argue with you. Thank you very much.
-You'll not go wrong with those.
-Let's leave it with you.
-Thank you very much.
No, £40. You give me 20s.
See how honest we are!
-I'll give you the benefit of the doubt!
-What an idiot!
Gosh, she's hardly got any money as it is and now she's giving it away.
-Right, here I go.
-Good luck to you.
As Margie goes next door, it seems David has not been idle.
This is a piece of Worcester porcelain.
And it's quite a well-known design.
A little bit rubbed there on the gilt,
but this is in the form of a shell with coral.
You've got the lizard going up the side there, all in gilt.
This is typical sort of 1880/1890 top-quality porcelain.
Really very nice.
I like that. I'll ask the price on that.
-Is that the best?
Yeah, I would say so, yes.
-Would you do it for 40?
Another item for David. Hurrah!
Now, remember that silver vase he liked.
Like a magpie, silver. It draws me.
He got the price down to £55.
Can Margie do any better?
..Walker and Hall.
How much is this, Charlotte?
-I bet it's going to be too dear.
How much is it worth to you?
It would be half.
I would go as low as...50.
You're being very fair but it's just got to be a dead cert.
If you really want it, I will let you have it for 40.
Hold on, that's £15 less than David was offered.
-It's a bargain at half the price.
-Do you think so?
It's not a bargain, it's a good buy.
It's not a bargain, it's a good buy.
David is going to be furious.
So, that's one...
There. And two. That's your lot.
Thank you very much.
Blissfully unaware of the deal that's just been done,
David has driven 18 miles north to the Trolleybus Museum
at Sandtoft, for a spot of time travel.
Really, really looking forward to it.
It's going to bring back so many memories of when I was a kid.
# Clang, clang, clang went the trolley
# Ding, ding, ding went the bell
# Zing, zing, zing went my heartstrings... #
Very pleased to meet you.
Hi, I'm Bruce. Welcome to the museum.
Thank you very much indeed. It's like a time capsule, isn't it?
Yes, we're set in the 1950s and '60s,
which is the era of the trolleybus in Britain.
Travel in post-war Britain was a very different story,
when cars were considered an expensive luxury.
Trams and trolleybuses provided a popular and cheap form
of public transport in major cities like London, Leeds and Edinburgh.
What's the difference between a tram and a trolley bus?
Oh, trams need to run on rails, as most people remember from Blackpool.
Trams pick up the current from one overhead wire
and return the current through the rails,
whereas a trolleybus runs, as you can see, on normal rubber tyres.
-But needs two wires in the air -
one to bring the current in and one to take it back.
-Very, very sort of environmentally friendly.
-That's true. Yes.
There's no emissions at street level.
All the electricity is very clean
and it's an environmentally friendly form of transport.
The museum has over 50 trolleybuses from all over the world.
Some in full working order and others
that have only just started out on the long journey
This is a prime example of the restoration going on at the moment.
This is a Nottingham trolley bus.
It's a six-wheeler and it dates from 1935.
It's all wooden structure.
That's right. Generally they were built of hardwood, which is why they survived.
This is an example of one that was turned into a garden shed,
when it was withdrawn.
-That's why it survived. Otherwise it would have been burned.
You can actually see that it's been used in the garden, can't you?
-That's the original paintwork, which would be green underneath.
How long is this going to take?
Oh, could be anywhere up to ten years!
-They've probably been at it about three or four already.
How many do you have working on it?
Um, three or four people, generally.
Because, with volunteers, it's an ad hoc arrangement,
there isn't a sort of a daily working party on it.
Just tell me, is there a bus that operates now?
Let's have a look at this trolleybus outside.
OK, all aboard.
-Thank you very much indeed. Where does it go?
Sandtoft Square or journey's end, the terminus, whichever.
-Journey's end, my favourite part.
-There you are.
-Thank you very much.
# I counted to ten then I counted to ten again... #
Hold tight, please!
This is wonderful. Absolutely marvellous!
I feel as though I'm in a time machine.
I shall open the door and end up in the 1950s.
It really is bringing back so many memories.
This is going to be the transport of the future.
# Bump, bump, bump went the brakes
# Thump, thump, thump went my heartstrings
# When he smiled, I could feel the car shake... #
Whilst David goes off his trolley,
Margie has driven on to Rotherham to squeeze in one last shop of the day.
Tick, tock, Margie!
-Hello. Hi, Margie!
-How are you doing?
-Not that brilliantly in the last hour.
Oh, dear! Come through, have a look around.
-Yeah, OK. You're mainly furniture, aren't you?
Yes, I'm just trying to find a little piece to go with my last item,
which is to do with writing or miniatures
or something like that.
I've just thought about that little silver charm bracelet.
It's got some dancing slippers on.
It's very nice. What is it? 1960s, usually.
Usually a bit earlier. Could be 1940s, '50s.
-Back in fashion, aren't they?
-Yeah, they sell OK.
-Back in fashion. Yeah.
So, how much?
Well, it should be 45, er, £40.
I think that's too dear for me.
You see, I've bought something else.
-Yes, that's very nice of you...
It cost me 25. Do it for 35.
Margie has gone miniature mad.
-We'll shake on that.
-Thank you very much. I hope you'll do well with it.
I do, too. I do, too.
With the bracelet, miniature pencil and dance card making one lot,
the shopping is over and David has one or two surprises in store.
-Yeah. What's going on?
Oh, you bought that!
I know, it's a love seat.
All my money's gone.
You're a little monkey, aren't you?
-You've bought other things?
-Yes, I have.
Oh, my goodness. May I have a look?
Be careful with it because it cost a lot of money.
I'm sure it did. This man is driving me...
Ah, that's lovely. Nautilus Shell.
How lovely! That's absolutely gorgeous.
-The mark on the bottom is Worcester. Yeah.
-Oh, that's beautiful.
And how much was it?
Have a guess.
Miles out, Margie. Guess again.
Please, don't play games! I can't bear it!
-I'm getting fed up with this.
-I'm not playing this game any more.
-Do you think it'll go for 180?
Don't look all hesitant like that, you're thrilled to bits!
I am really. Right, this cost me £150.
Lovely, with the chalk centre.
-And all these panels work.
We've got one roundel missing
but I don't think it's... not too bad to turn out.
-Well, they are fun pieces, aren't they?
-They are. Right.
Are you ready?
-Oh, I don't believe it!
-I do not believe it!
-I do not believe it!
I turned it down for that.
-Oh, did you?
-Well, you've probably done better.
-You got that for 55?
-You did not!
You know what, it's because I didn't want to buy it.
-Do you want to have a look? Have you...?
-I've examined it, thank you.
Er, let me have a look...
I'm fascinated by your prints.
Right, I don't think their prints. Hang on. Hopefully not.
They are prints laid to canvas.
-Are you sure?
Don't tell me they're going down the river? They were for £40.
Think they could fetch, what, 100?
I think that would be very favourable. £100.
-What, that would be optimistic?
-Yeah. SHE CHUCKLES
But they are nice. They are nice things.
-I can't get over your silver vase at £40!
-I think we've both done well.
-We'll see, won't we?
Like butter wouldn't melt. But what do they really think?
David is becoming a formidable opponent.
I think he's bought really well today.
The risk is the billiard scoreboard
but, there again, if somebody's got a billiard table, erm,
that could do really well.
The items I don't think will do well are those lithographic prints,
which are in such an awful state.
Made to look as though they are actual oil paintings on canvas
but they are not.
OK, Mr smarty-pants. Let's find out!
From Rotherham there's one final push on to Sheffield
and auction day.
I think we're going to do quite well here, Margie.
-Well, I think you might!
-I really, really do.
-I'm not as excited as you are!
-I'm getting quite excited about this.
-Margie, all the best.
-And to you, too.
Today our experts are doing battle at Sheffield Auction Gallery,
in business since 1840.
So they should know what they're talking about.
Let's see what auctioneer Robert Lea thinks
about David's and Margie's items.
'One of the two things I like,'
I certainly like the Snooker scoreboard,
that should do well in Sheffield, hopefully, the home of snooker!
Yeah, there's those three horseracing prints.
Quite early and I know they are in a tired state,
but we're not far from Doncaster, where the St Leger is,
so, hopefully, that should attract some local interest.
David began today's road trip with a mighty £485.60
and has spent £323 on five lots,
leaving him with £162.60 cash in hand.
Margie started out with £294.40 and has also bought five lots
costing £183, leaving her with a cash reserve of £111.40.
-Here we are, here we are.
-Here we go.
First up for Margie, it's the pair of Edwardian scent bottles.
28, a marker.
28...£30. 32...35... 8...£40.
-£50, hammer's going to drop!
-It's a fair price.
The sweet smell of success for Margie
and a good profit on her first lot.
-That's excellent. He sold those well.
-He did, bless him.
David's vase combo is up next -
the 1960s west German piece and the more traditional Bretby.
-£28 this lot and you're paying for the two.
30, I'm after.
£30 it must be to take the commission...
Come on, come on.
That's one, there's one over there.
Looking at 32 to progress.
£30 standing bid.
32, gentleman on my left.
-Got to be 35. 32 only.
Anyone offering any more? They've got to go! Over now, it's 32.
Oh, he's trying so hard.
-It's a profit.
Not a bad start for David but Margie takes an early lead.
-It's not £30 profits like yours!
Now it's Margie's bundle of the Victorian propelling pencil
and dance card with the Silver Charm bracelet.
Must start the bidding at...
£18, 20 I'm after.
£20 I need to move on.
-With me at £18 on commission...
-Oh, my Lord.
-..22, 25, madam.
I'm out but I'm out too soon. I need 28 elsewhere.
-That's too low.
-Over now, here? At 25.
Margie's cards are well and truly marked as she makes a loss of £20.
25? Oh, that's ridiculous.
That almost wipes out the profit you made earlier.
Next it's David's star buy, the Royal Worcester nautilus shell
and he's banking on this being a huge success.
Forced to start the bidding at £38.
40 I'm after.
-£40, it must be elsewhere.
-There you go.
He's on the hook.
-Can't believe it!
-On my right so far, £50 bid only.
Any more? 55, it's got a shell! Hammers going to drop at £50.
-Are we finished?
-Oh, £50. Oh, that is ridiculous.
Not quite the profit David was expecting,
giving Margie the chance to catch up.
I'm absolutely staggered.
Let's see if she can close the gap with the silver vase
that David ALMOST brought.
Lot of interest for,
to start the bidding at...
60, I'm after, elsewhere...
Has it stopped at 60?
Should go for 80, should go for 80.
..£70, gentleman on my left so far...
-Should go for 80.
-Anyone else for 75? It's going to go. All over £70.
-Margie, that was good.
A silver lining for Margie and another healthy profit.
-That's another £30!
-Yes, I know, but the last lot got wiped out.
David's set of Art Nouveau silver buttons is up next.
£30, 32 I'm after. 32...35...38. I'm out for £40.
-45, I'm with the lady so far.
They're so cheap!
55 in white so far. Must be 60 elsewhere.
Somebody said, "They're so cheap."
-55, top of the shop...
-They are cheap.
..they've got to go!
All bid at £55 with the gentleman?
-It's a profit!
-..at least I made £10.
David's making small but steady profits
but will there be enough to win him the day?
I really am getting quite worried about the...
-Oh, I've got these awful racehorse things now!
-..the other things I've left.
Now for Margie's tired old horse prints but has she backed a donkey?
-Quite a bit of interest in these. Must start the bidding at £110.
110. 115 I'm after...
-..somebody has just thrown his programme down!
115 am after.
With me at 110. Must be 115...
I can't BELIEVE this!
Main commission bidder's going to take it. 115...120...125...
-With me at 120 so far. Anybody else at 125?
Oh, that's great.
Shout at me if I've missed you. All done at 125?
Hammer's going to drop.
Racing ahead with the prints,
the odds on Margie winning have just been slashed!
I thought they were absolutely appalling!
I thought they were appalling! Oh!
Now it is David's rustic garden bench.
Will it leave him doing cartwheels of his own?
-Starting at the bottom. 20.
We'll do 105...ten.
No, 105 so far. Substantial piece...
..anybody else with 110? Just right for the summer...
The respectable result on the garden seat.
Please be upstanding for Mr David Barby.
-How much did I make on that, Margie?
More mock-intosh than Macintosh, it's Margie's final item,
the oak cabinet.
Need 28 move on. 28...£30...
32, madam? Looking at 35, now...
-Oh, this is a thrill.
-Yeah, go on, just a bit more.
-42. Seems cheap, this...
-Made a profit.
-..42, new bid, 45.
-Oh, it's a sweet little thing.
Untidy figure, let's have a half-century...
-Yeah, it's going.
-Oh, I planned it like this!
-55 in stripes.
At £55, are we done?
Oh, bless it.
I really liked that. I don't care.
-It's made a profit.
-It's made a profit.
Which puts Margie on course for her first victory.
-I doubted that it would...
-I know you would, I know you did.
Right on cue, it's the snooker scoreboard.
David needs a big break on this if he's going to defeat Margie.
Quite a bit of interest in this, forced to start the bid at £130.
135, I'm looking out to move on. 135 and were looking elsewhere.
But it's a slow starter.
(You're in profit.)
160 so far...
(Yeah, got people that it.)
You can relax now, David.
-Look at this.
He's potted the black.
-260 on the phone. So far at 260. Needs to be to 70...
-We need a bigger break...
-270, new bid.
-Just thought I was getting ahead.
I told you Sheffield was the centre of snooker!
-..on the phone so far. I need 330 to move on.
-(Shut up, you!)
-We need a yes from somebody else.
-Shut your mouth!
320 bit so far. Hammer's going to drop!
All done, are we, at 320?
With the board of snooker...
You have raced ahead.
-Well done, home of snooker, told you.
Look at that, top marks the David as he pockets the princely sum of £170.
Well, thank goodness.
-I almost wiped my face on that!
-What an interesting sale.
I think I need something quite strong.
-I'll for an orange juice, come on then.
-Yeah, come on but well done!
Margie started today's show with £294.40
and after auction costs she's made a profit of £79.40,
increasing her spending power for the next round to £373.80.
David started with £485.60 but even after the costs
he has made a profit of £137.84,
increasing his stash of cash to a mighty £623.44,
claiming his third victory in a row.
-So, it is well done to you again!
-And well done to you, Margie.
Quite good, nice to be in a, sort of, winning situation, isn't it?
Well, it is. Even if you are in a more winning situation than me!
-I thought I'd got you!
-I thought you had, as well.
I was worried when those pictures went up for sale
because I thought they were so dreadful.
-I really thought they were so dreadful.
-How dare you?!
-Where are we off to now?
-Some more shopping.
And what are we going to buy?
Find out next time on the Antiques Road Trip,
when Margie gets musical...
PIANO MUSIC PLAYING
..and David gets lucky.
Two, you said.
-That's the best bit!
