Welcome to Cash In The Attic,

0:00:020:00:03

the programme that searches out all those treasures

0:00:030:00:07

and antiques around your house and sells them for you at auction.

0:00:070:00:10

Today, I'm in Croydon, which is south of London,

0:00:100:00:13

and I've taken time out to stop off at the quite stunning Selsdon Park hotel.

0:00:130:00:18

Selsdon Park dates back to the Anglo-Saxon period.

0:00:180:00:22

It was originally known as "Sel Dun" meaning mansion on the hill.

0:00:220:00:26

Over the centuries, it belonged to several different aristocratic families

0:00:260:00:29

with notable guests including Queen Elizabeth I,

0:00:290:00:32

who is said to have planted a cedar tree in the grounds.

0:00:320:00:35

In 1924, the mansion was converted into a luxurious hotel

0:00:350:00:41

which even has its own 18-hole golf course.

0:00:410:00:43

Well, there will be no stopping for a round of golf,

0:00:430:00:46

or indeed a visit to the 19th hole today.

0:00:460:00:49

I've got to march on now and find all those antiques

0:00:490:00:51

and collectibles to take to auction.

0:00:510:00:53

'Today on Cash In The Attic, Jonty's getting some special attention.'

0:01:140:01:18

-Follow me.

-Oh, I'll follow you, all right.

0:01:180:01:21

'But we seem to be missing something.'

0:01:210:01:24

It says here is Barbie and Ken, but I can't find a Ken.

0:01:240:01:26

-What have you done with Ken?

-Bless his heart.

0:01:260:01:30

'And emotions run high at auction.'

0:01:300:01:33

Give me a hug then, Rosemary.

0:01:330:01:35

'Will we still be smiling when the final hammer falls?'

0:01:360:01:39

I'm on my way to meet

0:01:410:01:42

a very lively lady, and

0:01:420:01:44

she's hoping that Cash In The Attic

0:01:440:01:46

can help her move around

0:01:460:01:48

just that little bit faster.

0:01:480:01:50

This semi-detached house in Croydon has been home to Rosemary May for 18 years.

0:01:500:01:54

She grew up in Wales, but moved to London as a teenager

0:01:540:01:57

and worked as a secretary in various banks until her retirement.

0:01:570:02:03

Rosemary's great friend, Lynn, lives just round the corner and the two are very close.

0:02:030:02:08

-Jonty, good morning.

-How are you?

0:02:080:02:10

I'm good, thank you. It's very sunny, but a bit nippy.

0:02:100:02:13

-It's beautiful.

-I hope you've taken your energy tablets.

0:02:130:02:16

-Why's that?

-This lady is just fantastic.

0:02:160:02:19

75 years of age, more energy than the whole team all put together.

0:02:190:02:23

-You need to be up for it. And, by the way, quite fancies you.

-Really?

0:02:230:02:28

-Can you cope with an older woman?

-I can.

0:02:280:02:30

You can cope with me, can you?

0:02:300:02:32

Shall we go and meet her? She's fabulous.

0:02:320:02:34

Rosemary's her name, by the way.

0:02:340:02:35

Rosemary, Miss Energy herself, how are you?

0:02:400:02:43

So looking forward to seeing you.

0:02:430:02:44

-Wonderful to meet you.

-This is Lynn, your friend.

0:02:440:02:47

-Hello, Gloria.

-How did you get roped in for today, Lynn?

0:02:470:02:50

I've known Rosemary for about 25 years.

0:02:500:02:52

She's a very good friend of mine.

0:02:520:02:54

Like a second mum. I'm here to support her today.

0:02:540:02:58

She's a lovely friend. Couldn't wish for a more loyal friend.

0:02:580:03:01

That's what we like on Cash in the Attic. Good friends, good stuff.

0:03:010:03:05

What sort of things, Rosemary, are we likely to find?

0:03:050:03:08

There are so many things up in that loft and I go up and down that ladder. I enjoy it.

0:03:080:03:13

Having said that, it would be nice if someone else could benefit from some of the things.

0:03:130:03:17

It's a real Cash In The Attic attic today, is it?

0:03:170:03:20

Indeed. Indeed it is.

0:03:200:03:21

And are these things that you've inherited?

0:03:210:03:24

I have accumulated many of these things.

0:03:240:03:27

I've been very lucky, people have given me things.

0:03:270:03:30

Why do you think the time is right now to take them to auction?

0:03:300:03:33

What I want to do is to buy a new car.

0:03:330:03:37

I would love to have a new car.

0:03:370:03:39

Are hoping to find enough in the attic to buy a car?

0:03:390:03:42

Well, no, not the whole lot for a car, but something towards a car.

0:03:420:03:47

I'm looking for about £750...

0:03:470:03:49

Towards a car.

0:03:490:03:51

Towards a car.

0:03:510:03:53

The big bonus today is you've got Jonty in the attic.

0:03:530:03:57

Lovely. Jonty. The people don't know what they've missed.

0:03:570:04:03

Seeing him in person, wonderful.

0:04:030:04:05

The thing is, I know that he's already rummaging so maybe we should go and find him.

0:04:050:04:10

You'll be in your element then, Rosemary.

0:04:100:04:12

I will, indeed. I can't wait.

0:04:120:04:15

Don't chat him up too much, eh?

0:04:150:04:16

-No, No.

-Come on, Lynn, we'll go and find him.

0:04:160:04:22

I'm hoping Rosemary's not going to distract our expect too much

0:04:220:04:25

because her home is packed with items

0:04:250:04:27

that she's collected over the years.

0:04:270:04:29

If we're going to raise a decent amount of cash to go towards

0:04:290:04:33

a new car, we'll need to be firing on all cylinders.

0:04:330:04:36

With Rosemary being such a fan of Jonty, let's hope he doesn't disappoint her.

0:04:360:04:40

Luckily, he's already on the job and has our first find.

0:04:400:04:43

-Jonty, a special lady who wants to say hello.

-Hello.

0:04:430:04:47

-Hello, Rosemary, how are you?

-Just like the man I see on the telly.

0:04:470:04:51

-He's lovely.

-She's rather partial to you, I have to warn you.

0:04:510:04:54

Now, listen, I'm very partial to these pair of pictures here.

0:04:540:04:59

The more you look, the more detail you can find.

0:04:590:05:02

Take a look at this one, for instance.

0:05:020:05:04

We've got this lovely delicate basket of flowers.

0:05:040:05:07

The basket itself is mother-of-pearl, but all these flower heads, they're wonderful.

0:05:070:05:13

We have a mixture here of silk and mother-of-pearl.

0:05:130:05:17

The detail is really stunning.

0:05:170:05:19

It means they have to be 19th century.

0:05:190:05:22

When I say 19th century, they are probably early 19th century.

0:05:220:05:25

-And how could you tell that?

-It is just simply the detail.

0:05:250:05:29

This kind of work was done around, I suppose 1840-1860, really.

0:05:290:05:34

I suppose that they're mid-19th century.

0:05:340:05:37

This one, we have the basket of flowers, but this one here is an urn of flowers

0:05:370:05:42

so they've always been a pair, but they are quite different.

0:05:420:05:45

So what happened here?

0:05:450:05:48

Jonty, this is really sad.

0:05:480:05:51

Very, very sad to me.

0:05:510:05:53

With my house moves,

0:05:530:05:55

unfortunately, this one was damaged.

0:05:550:05:58

We do have to take this into consideration, so I think, from

0:05:580:06:02

a value point of view, they're about £50 each.

0:06:020:06:06

We are looking around the £100 mark.

0:06:060:06:09

At auction, I would put an estimate of £80-120.

0:06:090:06:13

What do you think of that amount, Rosemary?

0:06:130:06:15

-Do you think that's enough?

-Indeed, yes.

0:06:150:06:17

I will expect you to give them a huge kiss goodbye when you come to auction.

0:06:170:06:22

Now, we still got to try and raise £750, so we're off to a reasonable start there.

0:06:240:06:29

We've got to keep working.

0:06:290:06:31

-Shall we go this way?

-Follow Gloria.

0:06:310:06:33

I'm going to follow you.

0:06:330:06:35

-You can follow me.

-We'll try a different place this time.

0:06:350:06:38

Anywhere, Jonty, anywhere.

0:06:380:06:40

It's a shame about the damage to one of the pictures,

0:06:400:06:43

but £80 is still a very healthy start towards our car fund.

0:06:430:06:46

Whilst Jonty begins a thorough search of the house,

0:06:460:06:49

Rosemary decides to let go of her gate-legged dining table.

0:06:490:06:53

Inherited from her Aunt Gwen, she no longer uses it

0:06:530:06:56

and Jonty values it at £100 to £140.

0:06:560:06:59

That's one of the car doors paid for.

0:06:590:07:01

Meanwhile, the search heads upstairs and Jonty's spotted another interesting piece of furniture.

0:07:010:07:07

Lynn, tell me about this chest of drawers.

0:07:070:07:11

Nice mahogany chest of drawers.

0:07:110:07:13

I believe Rosemary got these from a house clearance sale in Purley.

0:07:130:07:17

I'm not sure exactly how much she paid for it, but I know it wouldn't have been very much indeed.

0:07:170:07:23

I think I have just discovered just down here,

0:07:230:07:26

I've had a quick look and I've got four legs perched at the bottom here.

0:07:260:07:31

I'm assuming that these are the legs for this particular chest of drawers.

0:07:310:07:36

Look at the colour.

0:07:360:07:38

This is the original colour to the whole chest of drawers.

0:07:380:07:41

Can you see how it's changed over the years?

0:07:410:07:44

Originally, in the mid-19th century, when a chest of drawers like this would have been made,

0:07:440:07:49

it would have been that colour.

0:07:490:07:51

The rest of the carcass here is veneer work.

0:07:510:07:56

You can tell that very clearly, you can see the line down the middle here.

0:07:560:08:00

That's two sections of veneer.

0:08:000:08:04

You can also see the depth of the veneer, can you see that?

0:08:040:08:08

That is how thinly cut these veneers are.

0:08:080:08:12

Bow front chest of drawers became popular in the mid-18th century.

0:08:120:08:17

This chest of drawers is mid-19th century.

0:08:170:08:20

Beyond this point, the bow front became less popular.

0:08:200:08:25

Chests of drawers beyond this point were much squarer on the front.

0:08:250:08:28

Would these be part of a set?

0:08:280:08:31

Like a bedroom suite? Are they chest of drawers on their own?

0:08:310:08:35

A piece like this would be much more of a stand-alone piece.

0:08:350:08:38

Value-wise, we are looking at around the £100 mark.

0:08:380:08:41

The auction estimate for this chest of drawers will be £80-120.

0:08:410:08:45

-Is that all right?

-That's fine.

0:08:450:08:47

Very good. Excellent.

0:08:470:08:48

So another great find. We seem to be on a roll with another significant

0:08:480:08:53

contribution towards our £750 target for Rosemary's new set of wheels.

0:08:530:08:58

The search continues with Lynn scouring the ornaments then Jonty

0:08:580:09:02

picks out this pretty Albion pottery jug along with a matching bowl,

0:09:020:09:06

shaving mug and soap dish estimated at £55-75.

0:09:060:09:11

I think it would look fantastic on a lucky buyer's dressing-table.

0:09:110:09:16

It's a beautiful day outside and still a hive of activity inside.

0:09:160:09:19

I reckon it's time for a quick breather.

0:09:190:09:22

While Jonty carries on, I grab some time for a girlie gossip

0:09:220:09:25

with Rosemary and Lynn to find out what's made them so close.

0:09:250:09:29

I can see why you call this one "Cosy Rosie!"

0:09:290:09:32

Actually, it's very cosy coming into your sitting room. It's lovely.

0:09:320:09:36

What else do you call her?

0:09:360:09:38

She has been known as a "unique antique".

0:09:380:09:42

-Thank you very much.

-And nutty as a fruitcake as well.

-I'll answer to anything, Gloria.

0:09:420:09:47

How long have the pair of you been friends?

0:09:470:09:49

Rosemary became one of my customers for a certain cosmetic company

0:09:490:09:53

and we've been friends ever since.

0:09:530:09:55

About 25 years, we've known each other.

0:09:550:09:58

Good friends by the look of it.

0:09:580:09:59

Wonderful. Wonderful.

0:09:590:10:02

It's lovely to know there's somebody there when you need them.

0:10:020:10:05

With all the things that have happened to me,

0:10:050:10:08

Lynn has always been there.

0:10:080:10:10

I can turn to her and it's lovely to know that you've got somebody like that.

0:10:100:10:14

What has happened over the years where you've been able to share and care?

0:10:140:10:18

Let me see, it's a long story. How long have you got?

0:10:180:10:22

There was a time when she fell off the ladder painting the house.

0:10:220:10:26

Up the ladder I go and Crystal Palace were playing football.

0:10:260:10:30

I love football, I love sport.

0:10:300:10:33

They scored three, I forgot I was up the ladder

0:10:330:10:35

and what does Rosemary do?

0:10:350:10:37

I jump for joy and down I come with the ladder and I ended up

0:10:370:10:41

in hospital with a broken foot for four months

0:10:410:10:45

and I was on a stick for two.

0:10:450:10:47

This is where my friend Lynn, quite frankly, she was brilliant.

0:10:470:10:52

She was gold-dust to me.

0:10:520:10:54

What other things spring to mind that she got up to?

0:10:540:10:57

She's been gardening and using a pick axe which ended up stuck in her back.

0:10:570:11:03

-Excuse me?

-A pickaxe. She went like that and it...

0:11:030:11:06

I forgot about that.

0:11:060:11:08

That's absolutely right. I was lucky.

0:11:080:11:11

It just skimmed my shoulder, I was really lucky, honestly.

0:11:110:11:15

I'm not laughing at you, I'm just laughing at the idea.

0:11:150:11:18

A pickaxe ending up in your back?

0:11:180:11:20

You have to laugh, honestly.

0:11:200:11:22

You have to keep active, sometimes, I really have to push myself a bit.

0:11:220:11:26

What she means is, she's a fidget-bottom.

0:11:260:11:29

There's another name to add to the list.

0:11:290:11:31

We've got "Cosy Rosie", we've got "unique antique" and we've got "fidget-bottom".

0:11:310:11:36

You know what, fidget-bottom, I'm going to make you work some more

0:11:360:11:40

cos we have to get enough money for this car of yours.

0:11:400:11:43

Or at least towards a car. OK, lead on, MacDuff.

0:11:430:11:46

-Let's go somewhere else.

-Will do.

0:11:460:11:50

From one unique antique to another - no, not Jonty -

0:11:500:11:54

this French-style mantle clock

0:11:540:11:56

valued at a very useful £40 to £60.

0:11:560:11:59

Jonty appears to be living up to Rosemary's high expectations so far today.

0:11:590:12:03

He is spoilt for choice with items in the attic.

0:12:030:12:06

It seems he really is a ladies' man as he unearths our next find.

0:12:060:12:11

Come and have a look at this collection of Barbie dolls.

0:12:110:12:14

-Wow.

-Look at this.

0:12:140:12:16

Gosh. How colourful and bright and gorgeous.

0:12:160:12:20

Where did you get this collection?

0:12:200:12:22

Some friends of mine came over from Canada,

0:12:220:12:25

some friends of friends, and they gave them to me.

0:12:250:12:28

They knew I loved dolls so much.

0:12:280:12:30

I was very happy about that.

0:12:300:12:31

-You were pleased to add it to your collection?

-Pleased as Punch.

0:12:310:12:35

How many do you reckon you have in there?

0:12:350:12:37

Oh, ten.

0:12:370:12:40

-I lose count.

-We've got quite a few here.

0:12:400:12:43

Now, I must close the box first of all, because it's the box that really gets me excited.

0:12:430:12:48

This has real age to it.

0:12:480:12:50

We've actually got the date here, 1963. This is really good.

0:12:500:12:53

Did they come in this box?

0:12:530:12:55

They did come in a box.

0:12:550:12:57

What it says here is Barbie and Ken, but I can't find a Ken.

0:12:570:13:00

Poor Ken's missing.

0:13:000:13:02

Aw, bless his heart.

0:13:020:13:04

You can't do without a man, can you?

0:13:040:13:07

-You've got your man for the day, you see!

-I should be so lucky.

0:13:070:13:11

Shall I be your Ken for the day? How about that?

0:13:110:13:13

-And in the attic, as well!

-Anything you like, dear.

0:13:130:13:17

Now, let's have a look at the dolls themselves.

0:13:170:13:21

I like this one.

0:13:210:13:22

I'm keeping this one. She's special, this one.

0:13:220:13:25

Barbie was invented by an American designer by the name of Ruth Handler.

0:13:250:13:31

She had a daughter, wait for it,

0:13:310:13:34

you don't have to be a rocket scientist to put two and two together.

0:13:340:13:37

Her daughter was called Barbara.

0:13:370:13:40

-Hence the reason why we have Barbie.

-Oh, yes.

0:13:400:13:42

Because we've got these accessories, which is good, and the fact that I love this case,

0:13:420:13:48

I think that this case has got real value because it's so early,

0:13:480:13:51

and the dolls are right, in so far that they look around 1970s, a lot of these,

0:13:510:13:55

I think these are definitely worth selling.

0:13:550:13:58

As a collection, we're looking at roughly £50 to £70.

0:13:580:14:03

You're joking, for a bit of plastic and the case.

0:14:030:14:06

Without Ken!

0:14:060:14:08

You know what I think? I think this attic is perfect for this programme.

0:14:100:14:15

You talk about cash in the attic, this is brilliant. I love this.

0:14:150:14:18

-I call it Aladdin's cave.

-I want you two to go and find more stuff.

0:14:180:14:22

You go over there, please. You go over there.

0:14:220:14:24

We've got to go back to work here. No more playing with dolls.

0:14:240:14:28

Never mind, it's interesting, it's enjoyable.

0:14:280:14:31

'The Barbie dolls are a great addition,

0:14:310:14:33

'but I have a feeling they're the tip of the iceberg up here.

0:14:330:14:37

'I continue rummaging and uncover this collection of

0:14:370:14:39

'postcards and cigarette cards which should make us another

0:14:390:14:42

'£30 to £40 that surely would buy us at least a car bumper.

0:14:420:14:48

'But we still have plenty to do if we're going to make our £750 target.

0:14:480:14:52

'While we carry on in the attic, Jonty heads off to find Lynn,

0:14:520:14:55

'who hasn't been slacking while we've been away.'

0:14:550:14:58

-Lynn, we've got a whole collection of ceramic pigs here.

-You have indeed.

0:14:580:15:04

What's the story?

0:15:040:15:05

Rosemary used to work at the NatWest Bank and I believe

0:15:050:15:09

-she purchased these from the manager for a measly sum of £6.

-£6?

0:15:090:15:15

-That's right.

-How long ago was that?

0:15:150:15:17

Around about 1986/87.

0:15:170:15:21

These were issued to children in the '80s

0:15:210:15:26

and the whole idea is once you saved up a certain amount, you were issued with another pig.

0:15:260:15:31

We have actually got the whole family here.

0:15:310:15:34

We have the father, who's Sir Nathaniel Westminster

0:15:340:15:38

and his wife Lady Hillary and their two children,

0:15:380:15:43

this is Maxwell and this is Annabel and baby Woody.

0:15:430:15:48

-But somehow we've got twins and four baby Woodys.

-Right.

0:15:480:15:53

They were made by the famous Wade factory,

0:15:530:15:57

you can see that printed into the mould on the underside of these pigs.

0:15:570:16:02

Originally, they were made by the Sunshine factory,

0:16:020:16:05

but Wade took over because this, as an advertising campaign,

0:16:050:16:10

-as a promotion, was very successful indeed.

-Right.

0:16:100:16:13

About ten years ago, when internet selling first became fashionable,

0:16:130:16:18

sets like these were selling for between £200 and £300.

0:16:180:16:22

I can't put that figure on it now and I'm not exactly sure where

0:16:220:16:25

the market is at the moment, but we're still looking at a very healthy £80 to £120.

0:16:250:16:31

-Great.

-Yes? Excellent.

0:16:310:16:33

I'll leave those there and carry on searching.

0:16:330:16:36

What's over here?

0:16:360:16:38

Well, having been bought for a mere £6,

0:16:380:16:41

these little piggies can be banked on to bring home the bacon

0:16:410:16:44

when they head off to market.

0:16:440:16:46

Lynn's discovered this collection of dolls which Rosemary's collected over 40 years,

0:16:460:16:51

but she's very happy to let them go and Jonty reckons it could make us £30 to £50.

0:16:510:16:55

Unsurprisingly for someone so active, Rosemary loves the outdoors and her garden is her pride and joy.

0:16:550:17:01

I couldn't miss an opportunity to take a look and find out

0:17:010:17:05

what keeps her so enthusiastic about life.

0:17:050:17:08

Rosemary, here we are in your beloved garden.

0:17:080:17:10

I gather you really love gardening?

0:17:100:17:12

I love my garden, Gloria.

0:17:120:17:14

It keeps me busy, but nature's wonderful, you can't beat it.

0:17:140:17:18

Knowing that you're very fond of DIY, have you done a lot of the heavy stuff yourself?

0:17:180:17:22

I did the crazy paving. I actually revamped the whole garden, redesigned it.

0:17:220:17:27

Is it because you come from Wales that you have this great love of the outdoors?

0:17:270:17:31

I'm sure it is because I used to spend much of my time

0:17:310:17:34

in the Black Mountains near where I was born.

0:17:340:17:36

I try and go back every year.

0:17:360:17:39

I love it, it is like a magnet to me.

0:17:390:17:42

Why is it so important to you to raise this money today towards a new car?

0:17:420:17:47

Instead of just being a hermit in my home,

0:17:470:17:50

sitting there and watching the TV, which many people do, I know,

0:17:500:17:54

but to keep active, it gets me out and about.

0:17:540:17:57

I can reach people far and wide.

0:17:570:17:59

If we're going to get the car, we better do more work. Rummage more.

0:17:590:18:02

Cosy Rosie, too cosy out here!

0:18:020:18:06

It's back to the search and this collection of Hummel figurines was started by Rosemary as a child.

0:18:060:18:12

She's decided the time has come to wave them off to auction

0:18:120:18:16

and Jonty thinks they should fetch another £40 to £60.

0:18:160:18:19

Back upstairs, Rosemary finds something

0:18:190:18:21

very close to her heart which could seriously help our cause.

0:18:210:18:25

Is she going to sell it or is she actually going to present it to Jonty?

0:18:250:18:29

Jonty, look what I've found, look what I've found.

0:18:290:18:31

What a beautiful ring. It looks like an engagement ring.

0:18:310:18:35

-Is it?

-We've got, what, four or five, five diamonds in there?

0:18:350:18:39

Look at that.

0:18:390:18:40

We've got hallmarks as well, that's wonderful. Whose is this ring?

0:18:400:18:44

That ring belonged to a lovely aunt of mine, Aunt Gwen, a wonderful lady.

0:18:440:18:49

Was she engaged at any point in her life?

0:18:490:18:52

-Oh, yes, she was married.

-Yes.

0:18:520:18:54

Somehow she was determined that she wanted me to have that ring.

0:18:540:18:59

My sense is that this ring has not been worn because these hallmarks

0:18:590:19:04

are so clear and crisp and we've got the original presentation box.

0:19:040:19:09

-That wouldn't surprise me, she was such a lovely lady.

-Was she?

0:19:090:19:13

-Oh, yes.

-When she gave this to you

0:19:130:19:15

did she tell you anything about it? What did she say?

0:19:150:19:19

Her words were, and I remember them to this day,

0:19:190:19:23

"If you are ever in the gutter, Rosemary, that is when you sell that ring."

0:19:230:19:27

-You're not in the gutter now?

-I'm certainly not in the gutter now.

0:19:270:19:31

I'm desperate to get my new car.

0:19:310:19:33

I think Aunt Gwen will be pleased I've done the right thing

0:19:330:19:37

at the right time. After all, she was a magistrate

0:19:370:19:40

so you have to do what she thinks.

0:19:400:19:42

-So, we're selling this ring?

-Indeed. Yes, indeed.

0:19:420:19:45

-I shall get my enjoyment out of it.

-Fabulous.

0:19:450:19:48

Because it will give a freedom to me,

0:19:480:19:50

which I think my aunt would have realised I probably needed.

0:19:500:19:54

This is lovely, this is certainly worth putting into the auction sale.

0:19:540:19:57

And, we've got some other gold rings in here, too.

0:19:570:20:01

If we put them all together, and have a little sort out for you,

0:20:010:20:04

I'm sure I'm looking at at least between £100 and £200 here.

0:20:040:20:07

-That's wonderful.

-All right? That's a real jewel of a find.

0:20:070:20:11

Let me put the lid back on there for safe keeping.

0:20:110:20:14

Bless his heart.

0:20:140:20:16

-I'm so grateful.

-Follow me.

0:20:160:20:19

Oh, I'll follow you, all right!

0:20:190:20:21

I thought for a minute Rosemary was about to propose to Jonty,

0:20:210:20:24

but, holding herself back, the rings join the rest of our treasures heading off to auction.

0:20:240:20:29

As well as Aunt Gwen's engagement ring,

0:20:290:20:32

there's also a 22-carat gold wedding band

0:20:320:20:34

and a 9-carat gold garnet set ring in the collection.

0:20:340:20:37

But despite our efforts, we are still a fair way off making

0:20:370:20:40

our target for Rosemary's car so we all give the search a last big push.

0:20:400:20:45

Lynn's doing sterling work and picks out something that grabs Jonty's attention.

0:20:450:20:49

What are you looking at?

0:20:490:20:51

These have been in Rosemary's house all the time I've been visiting her.

0:20:510:20:57

I think they came from her Aunty Gwen.

0:20:570:20:58

What do think of these?

0:20:580:21:01

I think they're beautiful, really lovely.

0:21:010:21:03

If you look very closely, can you see that what we're looking at,

0:21:030:21:08

this is all very fine embroidery and the thread has to be silk, it's that fine?

0:21:080:21:14

This one, particularly, is so charming.

0:21:140:21:16

We've got the two, what look like lovers strolling in the park.

0:21:160:21:20

They look like they haven't got a care in the world.

0:21:200:21:23

And, if you look at their dress,

0:21:230:21:25

that gives us an indication of the date we're looking at.

0:21:250:21:30

-Date-wise, we are looking at the early 19th century.

-Really?

0:21:300:21:34

These two pictures would have been made

0:21:340:21:37

almost 180 years ago, maybe 200 years ago.

0:21:370:21:42

This one here is an image of a classical scene

0:21:420:21:47

which was very popular at the time of the Regency period.

0:21:470:21:50

They were always designed to be a pair,

0:21:500:21:52

but they don't match in their theme at all.

0:21:520:21:54

You can see by the shape and size of the frame, they have always been designed to be placed together.

0:21:540:22:00

They're beautiful. Let me give you that one back.

0:22:000:22:03

They are in relatively poor condition.

0:22:030:22:07

When I say poor condition, they somehow have come away from their mountings.

0:22:070:22:11

Again, that's easy to get over by probably taking the back off

0:22:110:22:16

and remounting them and maybe you can give them a slight clean.

0:22:160:22:19

Do you think these are pictures that Rosemary might be interested in selling?

0:22:190:22:23

-I'm sure she would.

-I think they're so charming.

0:22:230:22:26

I think Rosemary would be happy to sell YOU by this stage to raise some money, Jonty!

0:22:260:22:30

Actually, I was having a look at these earlier on.

0:22:300:22:32

They're so exquisite, aren't they? They're so small.

0:22:320:22:35

They are small and perfectly formed, which means they have to have really good value at auction

0:22:350:22:41

are we're looking again around the £100 mark, so £80 to £120.

0:22:410:22:44

What do you think of that, Rosemary?

0:22:440:22:46

Quite funny, is the subject itself. I don't know how that can be appealing.

0:22:460:22:52

It surprises me that they're worth that much, quite frankly.

0:22:520:22:55

-It's the workmanship that's appealing.

-Oh, yes. It's all down to the detail.

0:22:550:22:59

Well, with the news that you're happy to let them go to auction, I can now give you the grand total.

0:22:590:23:04

Now, we know that you wanted £750 towards getting a new car

0:23:040:23:08

to get you out and about to make yourself even more active.

0:23:080:23:11

I'm happy to tell you that you have got your £750 and you even have a little bit more.

0:23:110:23:17

-With everything sold, you've got £765.

-Great!

-Yes!

0:23:170:23:23

-Thank you so much.

-Isn't that good?

0:23:230:23:26

-I can see you with that car, yes.

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you very much, Rosemary.

0:23:260:23:30

-Thanks to you.

-And, of course, to Lynn.

-Thank you.

0:23:300:23:33

Rosemary's house has proved to be a real Aladdin's cave.

0:23:330:23:37

We've made some fantastic finds, and here are some of the highlights.

0:23:370:23:41

These two oval mother-of-pearl flower pictures.

0:23:410:23:45

The intricate design of the flowers in these is absolutely beautiful.

0:23:450:23:48

They could bring in anywhere between £80 and £120.

0:23:480:23:53

The collection of '60s Barbie dolls,

0:23:530:23:55

given to Rosemary by her friends in Canada.

0:23:550:23:58

These are probably my favourites.

0:23:580:24:00

We're hoping they'll fetch us at least £50.

0:24:000:24:03

This family of NatWest piggies

0:24:030:24:05

could create lots of interest with the right collectors.

0:24:050:24:08

With a bit of luck they should bank us £80 to £120.

0:24:080:24:13

Finally, the collection of gorgeous rings that Rosemary has kept for

0:24:130:24:16

a rainy day. They include the pretty engagement ring from her Aunt Gwen

0:24:160:24:20

and £100 to £200 for these

0:24:200:24:22

would go a long way towards our target for Rosemary's new car.

0:24:220:24:26

'Coming up on Cash In The Attic,

0:24:260:24:29

'Rosemary's still in hot pursuit of Jonty.'

0:24:290:24:32

-Well done.

-Thanks a lot.

0:24:320:24:34

'Not all goes quite to plan.'

0:24:340:24:36

-I have to tell you, I think that is disappointing.

-I agree.

0:24:360:24:40

'But will Rosemary make it through the auction?'

0:24:400:24:42

-I've gone all funny now.

-Having a funny turn, love.

-Indeed, yeah.

0:24:420:24:47

'Find out when the hammer falls.'

0:24:470:24:49

Yours, sir.

0:24:490:24:51

So, it's been a few weeks now since we visited the very lively Rosemary May and her great friend, Lynn.

0:24:540:25:00

And I must say, we found some fabulous treasures upstairs and down

0:25:000:25:04

and we've brought them here to the Bamford Auction Rooms in Derby.

0:25:040:25:06

Now, we need £750 to put Rosemary firmly back in the driving seat.

0:25:060:25:11

Let's hope all the bidders today will speed us towards our target

0:25:110:25:15

but, you know what, Rosemary is a pretty fast mover herself.

0:25:150:25:19

It's still early but looking pretty busy today,

0:25:190:25:21

with plenty of bidders scouring the auction room for those all-important treasures.

0:25:210:25:25

Jonty's already tracked down some of our star lots.

0:25:250:25:28

The embroidered pictures fit right in here in the auction room

0:25:280:25:32

and we're hoping they'll help our car fund no end.

0:25:320:25:35

Good morning, Jonty, I hope you've taken your vitamin pills today.

0:25:350:25:39

Rosemary really fancies you, let's be absolutely honest,

0:25:390:25:41

she would have kept you in the attic if she could, permanently.

0:25:410:25:45

I'm quite happy to be a kept man!

0:25:450:25:47

Anyway, what do you think of hers is going to do well?

0:25:470:25:50

Remember the lovely pictures of the flowers in the baskets?

0:25:500:25:53

-They're so pretty.

-I think they'll do very well.

0:25:530:25:56

I actually loved all the Barbie dolls, remember, up in the attic.

0:25:560:25:59

And I suddenly realised there was no Ken, so maybe you are her substitute Ken.

0:25:590:26:03

Do you think, yes... Barbie, Ken. Rosemary, Jonty.

0:26:030:26:05

She would settle for that!

0:26:050:26:07

Shall we go and meet her?

0:26:070:26:09

-Great, yes.

-Yes, let's go and see her.

0:26:090:26:11

'I think it's high time we reunited our Barbie and Ken

0:26:110:26:15

'so we go in search of Rosemary and Lynn and we find them saying goodbye to some old friends.'

0:26:150:26:20

-Good morning. All the little piggies have come to auction.

-Hello.

0:26:200:26:24

How are you doing?

0:26:240:26:26

-Lovely to see you.

-How are you?

0:26:260:26:28

-Have you missed Jonty?

-I have, I have. Honestly, I have. I'd follow him anywhere.

0:26:280:26:34

You know what, Lynn, I reckon that Jonty was lucky to escape that day.

0:26:340:26:38

He was very lucky. Lucky escape, Jonty.

0:26:380:26:41

I decided that Jonty could be your Ken.

0:26:410:26:44

Yes, please.

0:26:440:26:46

-Now, listen, settle down, settle down.

-I'm not going to get jealous.

0:26:470:26:50

The auction is about to start, so we need to go and get in position, so shall we head in that direction?

0:26:500:26:55

Good idea.

0:26:550:26:57

'They really are out in force today, which is promising for the day ahead.

0:26:570:27:01

'If you're thinking of going to auction, remember that commission, VAT and other charges will apply.

0:27:010:27:06

'It's nearly time for the auction to start, so we find a corner and take up our positions.

0:27:060:27:12

'Our first item is the Victorian chest of drawers,

0:27:120:27:15

'which Jonty valued at £80.'

0:27:150:27:18

We've got two bids, absentee bids, one at 65, one higher.

0:27:180:27:22

70 has it, five now?

0:27:220:27:24

Five in the doorway, five, 80, five, 90.

0:27:240:27:26

Against you at £90, and five do I see?

0:27:260:27:29

At 90 with me and five now. At £90, all done at 90.

0:27:290:27:33

Are you sure?

0:27:330:27:35

-£90.

-£90.

0:27:350:27:38

'We're off and running, and £90 is £10 over Jonty's estimate.

0:27:380:27:42

'Fingers crossed, it's a sign of things to come.

0:27:420:27:45

'Next up is Rosemary's collection of dolls, which we're hoping will make at least £30.'

0:27:450:27:51

Now, Rosemary, I like this next item because I've loved dolls all my life.

0:27:510:27:55

I sort of get the impression from your house that you've collected dolls as well over the years.

0:27:550:28:00

Actually, my intention was for my granddaughter to have these dolls

0:28:000:28:04

but unfortunately she wasn't a dolly-minded girl.

0:28:040:28:07

-Not interested!

-It disappointed me, but, having said that,

0:28:070:28:12

I love them and I've always treasured them.

0:28:120:28:14

I can start the bidding at £15.

0:28:140:28:16

One bid on it at 15.

0:28:160:28:18

18 in the room, 18 bid.

0:28:180:28:20

18, 20 and two. 22 has it. 25 now.

0:28:200:28:23

25 in the centre. 28 for you.

0:28:230:28:25

At 25, it's in the middle at 25.

0:28:250:28:27

28 standing now.

0:28:270:28:29

30, 30, 32, 35, 35,

0:28:290:28:33

38 and 40. £38, it's against you, seated now.

0:28:330:28:37

At 38, standing at the back, £38.

0:28:370:28:40

Anywhere else?

0:28:400:28:42

It's good, smack in the middle.

0:28:420:28:43

Many thanks. Lovely Jonty.

0:28:430:28:45

Thrilled to bits, thrilled to bits.

0:28:450:28:47

Well, Rosemary's granddaughter may not want them

0:28:470:28:50

but there are plenty of bidders today who did

0:28:500:28:52

and it's another £38 in the pot.

0:28:520:28:55

Let's hope our next lot creates as much interest.

0:28:550:28:57

It's the gate-leg dining table with an estimate of £100.

0:28:570:29:01

We can start it at £65, and 70 do I see? 70? At 65, do I see 70 now?

0:29:010:29:07

At £65. All sure at 65?

0:29:070:29:11

Gosh, it shows how gate-leg tables are struggling at the moment.

0:29:120:29:15

-Are we allowed to sell that?

-Do you want to sell it or not?

-Yes, sell it.

0:29:150:29:19

Yes, sold, £65.

0:29:190:29:21

-A bit disappointing.

-Never mind, it's roundabouts and swings anyway.

-Yes, sure.

0:29:210:29:25

'Lovely Rosemary is putting a brave face on the situation

0:29:250:29:28

'but selling for £35 below estimate is disappointing

0:29:280:29:31

'but, as she says, it's swings and roundabouts.

0:29:310:29:33

'Let's hope our next sale will be a real high.

0:29:330:29:37

'It's the beautiful embroidered pictures

0:29:370:29:40

'and we're looking for £80 to £120.'

0:29:400:29:43

Very, very typical Georgian, untouched.

0:29:430:29:47

Never been reframed.

0:29:470:29:49

Lovely examples and lots of bidding.

0:29:490:29:52

£85 bid. 85 and 90 now.

0:29:520:29:54

At £85 and 90. 90 here, 95, 100.

0:29:540:29:58

100 beats them. Front row, £100. 110 do I see?

0:29:580:30:03

At £100, and ten anywhere?

0:30:030:30:05

At £100 and selling.

0:30:050:30:07

Bless you!

0:30:070:30:08

-You didn't like them anyway, did you?

-No, I didn't.

0:30:090:30:13

I'm very, very happy.

0:30:130:30:15

'That's much more like it. £20 over estimate is a fantastic result.

0:30:150:30:20

'Another very useful edition to our ever-growing total.

0:30:200:30:23

'We're only looking for about £30 for this next item.

0:30:230:30:27

'Those postcards and cigarette cards that were cluttering up the attic.'

0:30:270:30:30

£20 is bid, at 20, and two do I see?

0:30:300:30:34

£22 by the door, hands everywhere.

0:30:340:30:35

22, 25, 28, you're out. 25.

0:30:350:30:39

28, your turn. 28, and 30. 32, sir.

0:30:390:30:42

32 shakes his head, with you at 30.

0:30:420:30:45

32 now. At £30, all out at the same level, any advance on 30?

0:30:450:30:51

-£30.

-Happy with that?

0:30:520:30:54

-You're just doing so well. It's just amazing.

-I'm thrilled to bits, I really am.

0:30:540:30:58

'Bang on estimate, Rosemary is delighted with that.

0:30:580:31:01

'Another great boost to our total.

0:31:010:31:03

'We're all holding our breath for the next lot.

0:31:030:31:06

'The charming mother-of-pearl pictures Jonty was so excited by

0:31:060:31:10

'when he discovered them in Rosemary's home.

0:31:100:31:12

'Inherited from her Aunt Gwen,

0:31:120:31:14

'we're hoping they'll do us proud in the auction room today.'

0:31:140:31:17

Now, Jonty, you loved this.

0:31:170:31:19

I think these are your favourite items in the auction today. The lovely mother-of-pearl pictures.

0:31:190:31:24

I think they are lovely, genuine quality.

0:31:240:31:27

Remember, we've got a little bit of damage, but all

0:31:270:31:30

the damaged pieces are there because everything is behind the glass.

0:31:300:31:34

So it's repairable and I have a hunch

0:31:340:31:36

that they're going to do very well.

0:31:360:31:38

Absolutely beautiful things.

0:31:380:31:41

George III, never touched, period frames,

0:31:410:31:44

really in lovely country-house condition.

0:31:440:31:47

-He's giving it a good build-up.

-Five bids on them, the lowest is 70.

0:31:470:31:52

78 bid, 85 bid, 95, 100 and higher.

0:31:520:31:56

So 100 starts, and 110 where?

0:31:560:31:58

110 by the door, 120.

0:31:580:32:01

130 by the door, 140. 150, 160.

0:32:010:32:06

170, 180, 190, 200, and ten.

0:32:060:32:11

Yep, 210, 220,

0:32:110:32:13

-230, 240, 250, 260, 270.

-270!

0:32:130:32:18

280, 290, 300, 310, 320, 330.

0:32:180:32:23

340, 350, 360, 370, 380, 390, 400, and ten.

0:32:230:32:31

Beats them. At £410, 420 where?

0:32:310:32:35

At £410, far corner.

0:32:350:32:37

At £410 anywhere else? 410, sir, yours.

0:32:370:32:41

-So are you pleasantly surprised they raised so much?

-Yes, I am.

0:32:410:32:46

-These are tears of happiness, really.

-Fantastic. That's great.

0:32:460:32:50

Give me a hug, then, Rosemary.

0:32:500:32:52

-I'm going to give Jonty a hug.

-I bet you are.

0:32:520:32:55

-Well done.

-Thanks a lot, Jonty.

0:32:550:32:57

'Absolute tears of joy from Rosemary.

0:32:570:33:00

'And, as if she needed it, a great excuse to give Jonty another hug!

0:33:000:33:03

'Our expert suspected the pictures could be our secret weapon,

0:33:030:33:07

'and they certainly proved him right.

0:33:070:33:09

'£410 takes us to the halfway stage on a real high.'

0:33:090:33:14

I was saying earlier, Rosemary, that you're a pretty fast mover as it is.

0:33:150:33:19

You wanted £750 to go towards a car, to make you even more mobile. We'll never catch up with her now.

0:33:190:33:26

Well, at the halfway point in the auction,

0:33:260:33:29

I want to tell you that, although your target was £750,

0:33:290:33:33

-you have already reached £733.

-You're joking!

0:33:330:33:37

And we're only halfway.

0:33:370:33:39

-Are you serious?

-I'm serious.

0:33:390:33:41

And we have loads of items still to go.

0:33:410:33:45

I can see you in a sports car, you know!

0:33:450:33:47

I'm going to take a closer look at something I spotted earlier.

0:33:470:33:50

And don't you go with him!

0:33:500:33:53

'Rosemary, Lynn and I head off for a well-earned cuppa, following such an exciting first half.

0:33:530:33:59

'While we relax, Jonty meets up with the auctioneer, James Lewis,

0:33:590:34:02

'to get his views on what might be collectable in the future.'

0:34:020:34:05

James, I've taken some time out from the auction sale,

0:34:050:34:08

but I wanted to hear it really from the horse's mouth.

0:34:080:34:12

What sort of antiques do you think people should be investing in?

0:34:120:34:15

Here in our furniture store we're surrounded by the very unfashionable

0:34:150:34:20

19th-century brown furniture that we always talk about.

0:34:200:34:25

We're sitting on contemporary, modern design.

0:34:250:34:28

It's got to match this very modern look.

0:34:280:34:30

And that's why I've picked out this piece.

0:34:300:34:33

It's a lithographic print by Terry Frost.

0:34:330:34:37

A relatively contemporary artist - born in 1915 and died in 2003.

0:34:370:34:43

Whenever we're looking at art, the classic rule is that,

0:34:430:34:46

as soon as an artist dies, the art becomes more valuable.

0:34:460:34:49

Since 2003, Terry Frost works have doubled and trebled in value.

0:34:490:34:54

We sold five prints by him in our last sale,

0:34:540:34:57

and they varied from about £3,000 up to £6,000.

0:34:570:35:01

Do you think an image like this, a lithograph like this, will be a treasure of the future?

0:35:010:35:05

I think we need to look at who else is buying this art.

0:35:050:35:09

The Tate Gallery have a collection of Terry Frost.

0:35:090:35:12

If the Tate Gallery think it's worth hanging on to,

0:35:120:35:14

I think we should probably take note from that.

0:35:140:35:18

If they think it's worth buying, we should too.

0:35:180:35:21

'Great advice from James but, with the second part of the auction

0:35:210:35:24

'about to start, we retake our positions at the back of the room.

0:35:240:35:28

'First up is the French-style mantel clock, estimated at £40 to £60.'

0:35:280:35:34

£20 bid. 20, and five? Five. 30?

0:35:340:35:37

At £30. At £30. Five anywhere?

0:35:370:35:40

At 30. All done at £30?

0:35:400:35:43

£30. It's actually sold for under the bottom-end estimate.

0:35:430:35:47

-That's disappointing, isn't it?

-Yes, but it's roundabouts and swings, isn't it?

0:35:470:35:52

-You don't want to take it home anyway, do you?

-No, too heavy, dear!

0:35:520:35:56

'Oh, deary me, that's not the start we were looking for.

0:35:560:36:00

'But Rosemary seems relieved she doesn't have to lug that clock back home.

0:36:000:36:04

'Onwards and upwards. I'm really interested to see how this lot does.

0:36:040:36:07

'It's a collection of rings,

0:36:070:36:10

'including the stunning engagement ring from Aunt Gwen.

0:36:100:36:12

'We're looking for £100 to £200 -

0:36:120:36:14

'a real boost to our target if they hit estimate.'

0:36:140:36:17

Let's start the bidding at £120.

0:36:170:36:20

120. 130? 130. 130, 140, 150 for you.

0:36:200:36:24

150 has it, standing in the centre.

0:36:240:36:26

At 150. Against all four of my bids.

0:36:260:36:28

At 150. 160 now? 160, new place.

0:36:280:36:31

170? Shakes his head at 170. It's with you now.

0:36:310:36:35

At £160. Against them all.

0:36:350:36:38

At 160. All done? At 160...

0:36:380:36:41

-333.

-I was hoping for more than that.

0:36:420:36:45

-I have to tell you, I think that is disappointing.

-I agree.

0:36:450:36:48

Try going into a shop anywhere and buying diamond rings or garnet rings for that.

0:36:480:36:54

That was a real snip for somebody.

0:36:540:36:56

'Cheap it might seem for all those rings, but Jonty was right.

0:36:560:36:59

'£160 is towards the top end of his estimate,

0:36:590:37:02

'and it's another healthy contribution to our total.

0:37:020:37:06

'The auction room is still buzzing and we've got four items to sell.

0:37:060:37:09

'This attractive Victoria wash set is valued at £55 to £75.'

0:37:090:37:15

Start the bidding at £35.

0:37:150:37:17

35, and 40? 40, sir. Five? 50...

0:37:170:37:20

Five? 60 with you.

0:37:200:37:22

60 has it, standing. Five now?

0:37:220:37:24

At 60 with you. Five do I see?

0:37:240:37:26

At 60, gentleman in the centre. At £60.

0:37:260:37:30

Any advance?

0:37:300:37:31

-411.

-Hey!

0:37:310:37:33

Wonderful. Many thanks. That's super.

0:37:330:37:35

That's a really good result.

0:37:350:37:37

-Indeed.

-You're getting too excited again now!

-I've gone all funny!

0:37:370:37:40

-Having a funny turn, love!

-Indeed!

0:37:400:37:42

We all get them every now and then!

0:37:420:37:45

'Rosemary seems to be having a wonderful day and so are we.

0:37:450:37:48

'The wash set sells for a very respectable £60, at mid-estimate.

0:37:480:37:52

'Jonty is right on it today.

0:37:520:37:54

'Up next are the Barbie dolls in their original case.

0:37:540:37:57

'They're missing Ken, but will that make a difference to the bidders?'

0:37:570:38:01

I have a feeling you're not sad to see these go. These have had their time in your attic.

0:38:010:38:05

Indeed. I won't be sorry at all.

0:38:050:38:07

-They were just collecting dust, weren't they?

-Sorry?

-They were collecting dust.

-Indeed.

0:38:070:38:12

-That's what he'll be doing soon in your attic, collecting dust.

-Sh!

0:38:120:38:15

You're only jealous!

0:38:150:38:17

Where shall we start? £30? 30?

0:38:170:38:20

£30 for them is bid. At 30.

0:38:200:38:22

32, 35...

0:38:220:38:23

With me at 32. 35 now?

0:38:230:38:26

At £32. 35, 38, and 40?

0:38:260:38:30

40, 42, and 45 beats it.

0:38:300:38:32

With you at 45, standing.

0:38:320:38:34

All sure at £45?

0:38:340:38:36

333.

0:38:360:38:37

'Maybe the bidders did miss Ken,

0:38:370:38:39

'as the Barbie dolls sell for £5 under estimate.

0:38:390:38:42

'Still, good news for our target.

0:38:420:38:44

'We're on the home straight now

0:38:440:38:46

'and we're hoping the Hummel figurines will bring in £40 to £60.'

0:38:460:38:50

I can start the bidding at £22.

0:38:500:38:52

22 for this lot. 25, 28, 30.

0:38:520:38:56

32... 35.

0:38:560:38:58

35 in the centre.

0:38:580:39:00

38 now? 35. All done at £35? Any advance?

0:39:000:39:06

'That's only just under estimate at £35.

0:39:060:39:09

'Not bad. Now here comes our final item.

0:39:090:39:12

'Rosemary paid only £6 for these NatWest pigs in the 1980s.

0:39:120:39:16

'But Jonty's valued them at £80-£120.'

0:39:160:39:20

We all had a good look at the little piggies. I think you gave them a bit of a wash.

0:39:200:39:25

They had a good wash and scrub.

0:39:250:39:27

That's a good idea! Did the water not get all locked inside?

0:39:270:39:30

Indeed it did, and I had to lift them upside down.

0:39:300:39:33

Then I realised there was the thing you pull out the bottom, to release the water.

0:39:330:39:38

We will start the bidding here, there are ten in all, at £65.

0:39:380:39:43

70 do I see? 70. 75. 80.

0:39:430:39:45

80 has it in the back row.

0:39:450:39:47

85 near the doors. 85. 90.

0:39:470:39:49

-95. 100. 110.

-I can't believe it.

-120?

0:39:490:39:54

At 110. By the counter at 110.

0:39:540:39:56

120, you're back. 130.

0:39:560:39:59

Shakes his head at 130. With you.

0:39:590:40:01

At £120. Any advance? At 120.

0:40:010:40:04

-Spot on, Jonty.

-Good.

0:40:060:40:07

-Thank you, Jonty.

-Very good, eh?

-They were worth a wash and a scrub.

0:40:070:40:11

They were. It was the wash and scrub that did it.

0:40:110:40:14

'Well done, Jonty.

0:40:140:40:16

'With those shiny clean pigs securing us their top estimate,

0:40:160:40:19

'our car fund looks in great shape.

0:40:190:40:21

'We'll have Rosemary flying around in a sports car yet.

0:40:210:40:24

'With the auction over, it's time to give Rosemary and Lynn some great news.'

0:40:240:40:28

Now, this is the bit I love best, cos I have to bring you the glad tidings, or otherwise.

0:40:280:40:34

I just want to remind everybody that you wanted £750 to go towards a new car of some sort,

0:40:340:40:40

so that you could race around all over the countryside,

0:40:400:40:43

be faster than ever, and generally just get about more easily. Would you have been happy with 750?

0:40:430:40:49

I would have been very pleased with 750, yes.

0:40:490:40:52

Well, I can tell you, you have raised £1,183.

0:40:520:40:57

You're joking.

0:40:570:40:59

-Happy, happy!

-Oh, you're joking!

0:40:590:41:01

-Isn't that good?

-Fantastic. Fantastic.

0:41:020:41:05

-And a big smacker for Jonty.

-Well done, my darling.

0:41:050:41:09

Thank you, my love. I can't believe it. I'm very, very happy.

0:41:090:41:12

-Good.

-I'm very grateful.

-We like happy customers on Cash In The Attic.

0:41:120:41:16

Back in London, after such a brilliant result at auction,

0:41:210:41:24

there's no holding back Rosemary as she enlists Lynn's help to go looking at cars.

0:41:240:41:29

I've never had... a car virtually new.

0:41:290:41:33

And this is all I wanted to do and all I want is a nice, small car,

0:41:330:41:37

and here I realise they've got a wonderful selection,

0:41:370:41:41

so I'm looking forward to walking around and having a look and hearing some details.

0:41:410:41:46

Gee, whiz, what a size this is!

0:41:460:41:48

I don't like the way it scoops down.

0:41:480:41:51

Oh, that's lovely.

0:41:510:41:53

No.

0:41:550:41:57

Having viewed all the possibilities, Rosemary picks out a car she likes to take for a test drive.

0:41:570:42:03

'Well, I've had an excellent day, looked at many different cars

0:42:050:42:10

'and had a test drive.'

0:42:100:42:12

You know, I'll need to go around and have a look at a few more

0:42:120:42:16

before I make any decision but I really am so interested

0:42:160:42:19

and it's lovely to know I've got the money that I can spend on the car I want.
