Elementary, my dear dealers.

0:00:100:00:12

..and gives YOU the insider's view of the trade!

0:00:120:00:15

HE LAUGHS

0:00:150:00:16

Wow!

0:00:160:00:17

Each week, one pair of duelling dealers will face a different

0:00:170:00:20

daily challenge...

0:00:200:00:21

-Catch me if you can.

-The axeman cometh.

0:00:210:00:25

..putting their reputations on the line

0:00:250:00:27

Ugh! Ready for battle.

0:00:290:00:30

..and giving YOU their top tips and savvy secrets

0:00:320:00:35

on how to make the most money from buying and selling.

0:00:350:00:38

Get in there!

0:00:380:00:39

HE LAUGHS

0:00:390:00:41

Today's car boot buying bonanza pitches the countess of cash

0:00:410:00:47

Kate Bliss against the duke of dealing Phil Serrell.

0:00:470:00:52

Coming up - Phil turns a deaf ear to any price he doesn't like the sound of!

0:00:520:00:56

-Did you say that was 50 quid?

-No, no... Is that the wax?

0:00:560:01:00

Kate gives a masterclass in sticking to your guns.

0:01:000:01:04

-How does 20 quid sound?

-No, that's an insult!

-Oh!

0:01:040:01:07

And Phil really puts his back into selling!

0:01:070:01:10

-I'm never going to shift this.

-I see what you mean.

0:01:100:01:12

Yes. No, it's not doable, Philip.

0:01:120:01:16

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

0:01:160:01:18

Today we're meeting our antiques aficionados in West Sussex

0:01:320:01:35

where they're up early in a bid to grab the greatest car boot riches.

0:01:350:01:40

These two money-making maestros are battling for bargains

0:01:400:01:44

and they're determined to get them.

0:01:440:01:45

First up it's the warring wildcat of today's car boot battle ground.

0:01:450:01:49

She's armed and dangerous with antiques info,

0:01:490:01:52

and she's not afraid to use it. It's Kate "Absolute" Bliss.

0:01:520:01:57

HONK

0:01:570:01:59

Oh, that's quite a loud one!

0:01:590:02:01

Next into the arena and keeping his eye on the prize is

0:02:010:02:04

an antiques assailant who is in it to win it.

0:02:040:02:07

He'll wield his mighty sword until it spears him

0:02:070:02:09

a profit.

0:02:090:02:10

What do you reckon?

0:02:100:02:12

It's Phil "The Fox" Serrell.

0:02:120:02:14

You have got to get stuck in here.

0:02:140:02:16

They've each got £250 of their own money to spend

0:02:160:02:19

and all of their profits go to their chosen charities.

0:02:190:02:22

Kate Bliss and Phil Serrell it's time to

0:02:220:02:25

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

0:02:250:02:28

-It's a bit early, isn't it?

-Do you know what?

0:02:290:02:32

I really, really, really don't do this early in the morning

0:02:320:02:34

-and I'm going to have to force a smile.

-I know.

-I know.

0:02:340:02:37

-So, come on, I need the tips. You've been here before.

-I've been here before.

0:02:370:02:40

-We've got £250.

-Yes.

0:02:400:02:42

Now, it's like the chariot scene from Ben Hur at half past seven.

0:02:420:02:46

There's people everywhere.

0:02:460:02:47

It's very, very quick and then at half ten, 11 o'clock, it's gone.

0:02:470:02:50

So this is a buy, buy, buy?

0:02:500:02:51

-Yes, buy early.

-Get in, get out.

-Buy, buy, and bye-bye.

0:02:510:02:54

What are you going to be looking for?

0:02:540:02:57

Do you know I haven't got a clue? Whatever they've got basically.

0:02:570:03:00

-I'm going to try and buy a profit.

-Buy a profit.

0:03:000:03:02

-I'm with you on that one.

-Which way are you going?

-That way.

0:03:020:03:05

-I'm going to go that way.

-OK.

-Good luck.

-See you later.

0:03:050:03:07

Our daring dealers have come to the Ford Airfield car-boot sale armed

0:03:090:03:13

with their own strategies and stealth-like styles, determined

0:03:130:03:16

to bag the best of the "booter" and pack the most powerful profit punch.

0:03:160:03:21

Well, for once I don't think Philip was bowling me a fast one when

0:03:210:03:24

he said you had to get in the fight here. My strategy is to buy, buy, buy.

0:03:240:03:29

It is buzzing here and there's no room for hesitation.

0:03:290:03:32

Are we going to be able to keep up with this speedy sorceress?

0:03:340:03:37

And, more to the point, is Phil?

0:03:370:03:39

The thing about car boots is you cannot dwell, you've got to get

0:03:390:03:43

in there and buy, buy, buy and buy quickly cos if you dwell it's gone.

0:03:430:03:47

Just look at him go. This is going to be one fast

0:03:480:03:50

and furious fight to find a fortune.

0:03:500:03:54

If I'm going to get around here quickly

0:03:540:03:56

I could do with a pair of these.

0:03:560:03:58

They might just be a bit big really.

0:03:580:04:00

And even without the help of special sneaky sneakers Kate's hot

0:04:000:04:04

footed it straight to a potential purchase.

0:04:040:04:07

That's a tenner. I have one at home.

0:04:070:04:11

The one at home is a different colour, it's a darker colour.

0:04:110:04:14

It looks so lovely with all the little primulas in their little pots

0:04:140:04:17

-and a lovely thing in the middle.

-Can you do it for five?

-No.

0:04:170:04:21

Really, I'll take 7.50. I paid five for it.

0:04:210:04:24

Can we knock the 50 because I haven't got any change?

0:04:240:04:27

-£7 is good.

-Done.

-Only because it's you.

0:04:270:04:30

Only because you have a nice smile.

0:04:300:04:33

You say all the right things.

0:04:330:04:36

£7 and a winning smile and Kate's first buy is in the basket!

0:04:360:04:40

This is a bargain of a first buy.

0:04:420:04:44

Can't resist a basket. Glasses in here, magnum of champagne in the middle,

0:04:440:04:48

perfect for a family picnic or day at the races. And I know exactly who I'm going to sell it to.

0:04:480:04:53

My goodness. She's taken off like a rocket!

0:04:550:04:58

Phil needs to take a long hard look at himself in this 19th-century mirror.

0:04:580:05:03

-25 quid.

-I'll give you 20 quid for it.

-Go on, then.

-Done.

0:05:030:05:05

-Thank you very much.

-Thank God for that!

0:05:050:05:07

-Really?

-THE SELLER LAUGHS

0:05:090:05:11

Thanks a bunch for that one.

0:05:110:05:13

Blimey, speed is of the essence!

0:05:130:05:15

How fast was that deal? Let's have a look!

0:05:150:05:18

-25 quid.

-I'll give you 20 quid for it.

-Go on, then.

-Done.

0:05:180:05:22

Three seconds! The vendor might be pleased to quickly see

0:05:220:05:25

the back of that mirror, but Phil hopes to see a profit in it.

0:05:250:05:29

This is a really lovely 19th century

0:05:290:05:32

mahogany-veneered, swing-framed toilet mirror.

0:05:320:05:34

This would have sat in the dressing room of a lady and gentleman.

0:05:340:05:38

When you got dressed in the morning, put your tie on, your scarf,

0:05:380:05:41

or your jewellery, this would have adorned your dressing table.

0:05:410:05:44

You cannot go and buy a modern mirror for £20.

0:05:440:05:47

If I can't make a profit out of that, I should give up.

0:05:470:05:51

Mm, swift and confident, that's our Fox!

0:05:510:05:53

In case you blinked and missed it, viewers,

0:05:530:05:55

our two rapid relic hunters have quickly netted one buy each.

0:05:550:05:59

Phil is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning,

0:05:590:06:02

and charges headlong towards his second possible purchase.

0:06:020:06:05

Excuse me, good sir, how much are your chairs?

0:06:050:06:08

The three things are £30.

0:06:080:06:10

Or maybe he just wants a little sit-down?

0:06:100:06:13

-How old are they?

-Oh, um, 1980.

0:06:130:06:17

-Would 20 quid buy the three?

-Yes.

-It would? You're a gentleman.

0:06:170:06:20

Thank you very much indeed.

0:06:200:06:22

-They're my brother's and I want to see the back of them.

-Back of them.

0:06:220:06:25

And, with no time to lose, veteran deal-doer Phil

0:06:250:06:28

wheels off his £20 furniture haul.

0:06:280:06:31

So, what's he got to say about his seats?

0:06:310:06:33

These have got no age at all to them.

0:06:330:06:37

Probably from quite a well-known Scandinavian retailer.

0:06:370:06:41

But I think they're quite funky. And they're cheap.

0:06:410:06:44

That's why I bought them. Saw them, £20 the three.

0:06:440:06:47

How can I possibly fail on that?

0:06:470:06:50

But I can't stop!

0:06:500:06:51

Blimey! And, with that, Phil races into the lead.

0:06:510:06:55

But Kate is already eyeing up

0:06:550:06:57

something she hopes will lift her spirits.

0:06:570:07:00

-What's the best on the labels?

-40 quid.

0:07:000:07:02

-35?

-OK. Thanks a lot.

-Thanks.

0:07:020:07:05

Cheers, Kate! Right, what are they?

0:07:050:07:08

Now, even though they're tarnished, I could tell they're made of silver.

0:07:080:07:11

And they're a matching set of four.

0:07:110:07:14

Essentially, these are labels to go on decanters.

0:07:140:07:17

Now, I don't know the exact date, but I can tell they're not very old.

0:07:170:07:20

They're certainly quality. And, for £35, they're really not expensive.

0:07:200:07:26

Yes, Kate certainly knows a bargain when she sees one.

0:07:270:07:30

With those under her belt, she's head-to-head

0:07:300:07:32

with her rival at two buys each.

0:07:320:07:34

But it seems Phil is unstoppable -

0:07:340:07:37

he's just spotted another possible money-maker, an enamel sign.

0:07:370:07:40

-How much is that?

-It will be 80 quid to you.

-No, I can't afford that.

0:07:400:07:44

-Guaranteed money in that.

-No, I can't afford that.

0:07:440:07:47

You could sell that to Catherine Zeta Jones, couldn't you?

0:07:470:07:50

You might want to work on your spelling, Foxy!

0:07:500:07:53

Did you say that was 50 quid?

0:07:530:07:54

No, no. Is it the wax?

0:07:540:07:57

-How much is it?

-60 quid, best.

-Did you say 55? 60.

0:07:570:08:01

55 quid and I've bought it.

0:08:010:08:03

You're a gentleman, thank you very much indeed.

0:08:030:08:06

What on earth am I doing?!

0:08:060:08:07

Hm, the old hard-of-hearing haggle pays off,

0:08:070:08:09

and he swipes £25 off the asking price.

0:08:090:08:13

This is the forerunner of the A3 poster.

0:08:130:08:16

In the '20s and '30s, brands, formats, they all stayed the same.

0:08:160:08:21

This is Zetor Service. Zetor is a make of tractor.

0:08:210:08:24

So I'm kind of hoping that I can either find

0:08:240:08:27

a tractor maker or manufacturer or retailer

0:08:270:08:30

who's got an interest in these.

0:08:300:08:32

Or, better still, someone who's got a vintage tractor

0:08:320:08:34

who might be interested in buying it.

0:08:340:08:36

With three items to Kate's two,

0:08:360:08:39

Phil thinks he's on the right track for a profit.

0:08:390:08:41

But Kate is not lost at sea yet.

0:08:430:08:45

Oh, I like your sea. Is that an oil or a print?

0:08:450:08:47

Edgar Freyberg, original.

0:08:470:08:49

German artist, 1927-2010.

0:08:490:08:53

-How much is it?

-150, or near offer.

-Ooh.

0:08:530:08:56

No, but he's good.

0:08:560:08:58

All he'd done was seascapes and marine scenes.

0:08:580:09:00

You can make me an offer.

0:09:000:09:02

-Cheeky?

-Yeah, you're going to say, have I got change for 50p?

0:09:020:09:05

Yeah, go on, Kate!

0:09:050:09:07

-50 quid?

-Oh, that is cheeky.

0:09:070:09:09

Er... £100 cash, it cost me 80.

0:09:090:09:13

He is a serious, serious artist.

0:09:130:09:14

-Where did you buy him?

-I did a clearance in North London

0:09:140:09:17

in Islington, some guy's studio.

0:09:170:09:19

A German dealer. And he had just loads.

0:09:190:09:21

-I had six all in all, it's the last one I've got left.

-I'll do you 90.

0:09:210:09:24

Go on, then. That makes me a tenner.

0:09:250:09:27

That's a gamble. That is a gamble.

0:09:270:09:29

It's a good gamble, trust me, it's a great gamble.

0:09:290:09:31

In a brave move, Kate knocks £60 off the oil painting,

0:09:310:09:34

but it still cost her a pretty penny.

0:09:340:09:37

This is very definitely a gut-instinct buy.

0:09:370:09:40

It's an oil on canvas, apparently by an Edgar Freyberg.

0:09:400:09:44

But I know nothing about this artist. It's one to research.

0:09:440:09:48

So I've gone on the composition, the way it's painted,

0:09:480:09:52

and I love the way the light is captured in the sea.

0:09:520:09:55

But also the age of the piece.

0:09:550:09:56

If you turn it over, you can see it's an early 20th-century canvas.

0:09:560:10:00

So, £90.

0:10:000:10:03

Quite a lot to spend on something I love, but I know very little about.

0:10:030:10:09

But Kate's painting research will have to wait

0:10:090:10:11

as there's still buying to be done!

0:10:110:10:14

She wastes no time jumping on a collection of antique animals.

0:10:140:10:18

These are lead animals.

0:10:180:10:21

But the key thing is they are by the leading manufacturer

0:10:210:10:24

of this sort of thing, Britains.

0:10:240:10:26

And they've become quite collectable.

0:10:260:10:28

The only thing that is making me hesitate slightly

0:10:280:10:32

is that they are not in great condition.

0:10:320:10:34

But I've never seen a kangaroo before.

0:10:340:10:35

Really? They're jumpy, bouncy things with a pouch,

0:10:350:10:39

loads of them in Australia. Hm!

0:10:390:10:41

-How much are these, please?

-£10 for all of them.

0:10:410:10:44

-£10 for all of them?

-Yep.

0:10:440:10:46

-Could you do 5, madam?

-What about 6?

0:10:460:10:49

Ooh, 5 is better, they're just not in great condition.

0:10:490:10:53

Done.

0:10:530:10:55

And Kate's £5 deal takes us to the halfway mark.

0:10:550:10:58

So, let's see who's enjoying life in the fast lane

0:10:580:11:01

and who's languishing in the lay-by.

0:11:010:11:04

Both our dealers arrived with £250 of their own money to spend.

0:11:040:11:09

Kate's powered into an early lead, spending £137 on four items,

0:11:090:11:14

leaving £113 in her kitty.

0:11:140:11:18

Despite a speedy start, Phil is lagging behind with three purchases

0:11:180:11:21

costing £95, leaving him with £155 for the rest of the day.

0:11:210:11:28

-Hello, hello.

-You had to wear your running spikes.

0:11:280:11:30

-How have you got on?

-You weren't wrong, were you?

0:11:300:11:32

You've got to be quick out there. But, you know what,

0:11:320:11:35

there's a lovely atmosphere,

0:11:350:11:36

the sun's out, I'm quite enjoy myself.

0:11:360:11:38

-And there's some good things here, I think.

-There are some good things.

0:11:380:11:42

-Have you done well?

-Well, I've spent a bit.

-Have you?

0:11:420:11:45

How about you? Spending money?

0:11:450:11:47

Spent a bit, yeah. There's one thing I might be quite pleased with.

0:11:470:11:50

-SHE GASPS DRAMATICALLY

-And you?

0:11:500:11:52

-I don't like the sound of that.

-And you?

0:11:520:11:54

I'm feeling OK, put it that way.

0:11:540:11:56

-Come on, I want to get on.

-Go on, see you later, bye.

0:11:560:11:58

Our whirling dervish dealers mean business.

0:12:020:12:05

They're not giving anything away to the competition.

0:12:050:12:08

Well, I told Kate she's got to get a move on,

0:12:080:12:10

and it appears she's done just that.

0:12:100:12:12

And, as ever, keeping her cards very close to her chest.

0:12:120:12:16

So, it seems the Fox has been unsettled

0:12:160:12:19

in his natural buying habitat.

0:12:190:12:20

And he's not the only one.

0:12:200:12:22

There was a great pace when we arrived.

0:12:220:12:24

Now, everybody is very much unpacked,

0:12:240:12:26

good things have been bought and taken away.

0:12:260:12:29

So, I feel I've really got to go up a gear,

0:12:290:12:31

to stay in the fight with the Fox.

0:12:310:12:34

Yes, indeed, the best bargains get snapped up early at a car boot.

0:12:350:12:39

So, engines revving, our adversaries head back into the fray.

0:12:390:12:43

Both determined, both focused,

0:12:430:12:45

and both resolutely blinkered to any distractions.

0:12:450:12:48

Ooh.

0:12:480:12:50

-Do you come here often?

-CANNED LAUGHTER

0:12:500:12:53

Phil! Stop being such a cool customer and lounging around.

0:12:530:12:56

CANNED LAUGHTER

0:12:560:12:58

That's enough milling around!

0:12:590:13:01

Well, unlike you, Philip,

0:13:010:13:02

I never "tyre"! MUTED LAUGHTER

0:13:020:13:05

He looks like he's on the case!

0:13:050:13:07

The nice thing about this example is it's an unusually large piece,

0:13:090:13:13

and bears evidence of some original patina here.

0:13:130:13:16

Get a grip!

0:13:170:13:19

I really need to motor on.

0:13:190:13:21

Yes, you absolutely do! And, immediately taking her own advice,

0:13:210:13:24

Kate drives straight towards possible purchase number five.

0:13:240:13:27

How much is that?

0:13:290:13:30

25. I couldn't bear leaving it when I sold my cottage.

0:13:300:13:34

-Is it from your house?

-Yes. In Oxford.

0:13:340:13:37

Could you do a little bit less for me?

0:13:370:13:40

20.

0:13:400:13:41

-It did cost a lot to get made.

-Yeah.

0:13:430:13:46

Slate, yes? If you do 15?

0:13:460:13:48

Go on, then.

0:13:480:13:51

Kate strikes a deal at £15,

0:13:510:13:53

and takes the time to show off her mind-reading skills

0:13:530:13:56

I know what you're thinking.

0:13:560:13:58

You're thinking, good move, Bliss, she's gone straight in there,

0:13:580:14:01

she knows somebody with a house called Willow Cottage. Easy sale.

0:14:010:14:05

Well... I might not, just yet,

0:14:050:14:08

but how many Willow Cottages are out there? Thousands!

0:14:080:14:12

Should be a piece of cake, shouldn't it?

0:14:120:14:15

That's the spirit!

0:14:150:14:17

With Kate in pole position, Phil needs to get a wriggle on.

0:14:170:14:21

But, never fear, he quickly spots something

0:14:210:14:23

he hopes will make him more profit than you could shake a stick at!

0:14:230:14:28

How much is this stick, please?

0:14:280:14:30

22 gives me a bit of profit.

0:14:300:14:32

I was thinking more like 15.

0:14:320:14:34

15? I can't do that.

0:14:340:14:36

I'll do 20 on it. 20 will give me a tiny profit.

0:14:360:14:40

You're going to have me in tears in a minute,

0:14:400:14:42

-you know that, don't you?

-I know that.

0:14:420:14:44

-You're a gentleman.

-Thanks very much.

-I'll shake you by the hand.

0:14:440:14:47

-Does it make me look distinguished?

-It does.

-Something needs to!

0:14:470:14:50

So, Phil gets just a £2 discount, but he walks off a very happy man.

0:14:500:14:57

I'm really pleased with my stick, it's a bit Chaplin-esque, isn't it?

0:14:570:15:00

What I love about it is the fact

0:15:000:15:01

it's got these silver mounts on it.

0:15:010:15:03

hallmarked silver, assayed in Birmingham.

0:15:030:15:07

I would guess round about 1920, something like that.

0:15:070:15:10

If you took these off here, and melted them down,

0:15:100:15:14

I would think there's probably £15-20 of silver.

0:15:140:15:17

I think there's a modest profit in that.

0:15:170:15:19

Across the car boot, Kate has spotted an old school desk

0:15:220:15:26

and goes in on a charm offensive.

0:15:260:15:30

Hi, there, how much is on the desk?

0:15:300:15:32

-I was looking around 45-ish.

-That's a bit too much for me.

0:15:320:15:35

What are you looking at?

0:15:350:15:38

Well, funnily enough, I bought one for my son, and I only paid 15.

0:15:380:15:41

Oh, wow, that was a bargain.

0:15:410:15:42

-I don't know whether it was, actually.

-I think it was.

0:15:420:15:45

Kate's going to have to employ some textbook haggling techniques here!

0:15:450:15:49

-Well, I'm going to be really cheeky.

-I know you are.

0:15:490:15:53

-How does 20 quid sound?

-No! That's an insult.

0:15:530:15:56

Please, you've got to meet me somewhere.

0:15:560:15:58

I've paid less than that in the past, honestly.

0:15:580:16:01

Get ready for a dealing masterclass!

0:16:010:16:03

I can't really take less than 35.

0:16:050:16:07

-I can't do 35, give me some help?

-I already have.

0:16:070:16:10

Help me in the middle.

0:16:100:16:11

-25, final offer.

-30.

-I can't do 30.

-Yes, you can.

0:16:110:16:15

I can't, honestly, I can't, I can't do 30. 25.

0:16:150:16:20

-30. Oh, come on!

-KATE LAUGHS

0:16:200:16:23

Aha, the "show them the money" trick. Will it work?

0:16:230:16:27

-Well, 25 I can do.

-30 I can do.

0:16:280:16:31

I can't do 25, that's giving it away.

0:16:310:16:34

Go on. I'll get you a cup of tea.

0:16:340:16:37

No.

0:16:370:16:38

Hm, no. Not even the offer of a cuppa has swayed her.

0:16:380:16:42

How about the "I'm going to walk off and not buy it" strategy?

0:16:420:16:46

All right. We'd better press on.

0:16:460:16:48

Are you sure?

0:16:480:16:50

-All right.

-Yep?

0:16:510:16:54

Brilliant.

0:16:540:16:55

25 for you.

0:16:550:16:57

There you go! The vendor looks...delighted(!)

0:16:570:17:01

And Kate closes the lid on her sixth deal of the day.

0:17:010:17:04

I love my little child's desk.

0:17:040:17:07

My son's got one very like it in his bedroom,

0:17:070:17:09

and he loves to keep all his secret stuff inside there.

0:17:090:17:13

Now, the stallholder thought it was Victorian.

0:17:130:17:15

I think it's a little bit later, early 20th century.

0:17:150:17:18

But it's got a great little brass sliding inkwell, which I love.

0:17:180:17:22

Chuffed to bits.

0:17:220:17:23

So, with the clock ticking,

0:17:230:17:25

and aware the stalls will soon start to pack up and disappear,

0:17:250:17:28

Phil has harnessed his fifth purchase for £10.

0:17:280:17:32

This is a French pony or donkey collar.

0:17:320:17:35

What's quite unusual about it is that these things,

0:17:350:17:38

normally they've been worn, they're straw-filled,

0:17:380:17:40

and the leather here wears away.

0:17:400:17:43

The fact it is for only a pony or donkey,

0:17:430:17:45

I think that's a bit more saleable.

0:17:450:17:48

Kate has also been trawling for last-minute trendy treasures,

0:17:480:17:51

and has snagged some vintage finery!

0:17:510:17:53

I've been looking for some vintage items for ages.

0:17:530:17:57

And I finally found some.

0:17:570:17:59

We've got a great 1970s graphic print shirt.

0:17:590:18:02

And a beautiful 1970s sea green dress which you could more than wear today.

0:18:020:18:08

So, £14 the two. Bargain!

0:18:080:18:13

And, with that, Miss Bliss calls it a day.

0:18:130:18:17

Well, I'm all done, and I'm pleased as punch with my purchases.

0:18:170:18:20

I knew I had to be really speedy here, and so motor on I did.

0:18:200:18:24

It's just as well. Look around me.

0:18:240:18:26

People are going home already.

0:18:260:18:30

The stallholders may be packing up,

0:18:300:18:32

but Phil is determined to secure one last item before the market closes.

0:18:320:18:36

-How much are these measures, please?

-I've been asking 15 a set for them.

0:18:360:18:41

One-off deal, £10, I can't pay more than a tenner,

0:18:410:18:43

-those are my house rules.

-Yeah.

0:18:430:18:47

-And that's it.

-Yes, thank you.

0:18:470:18:49

Ooh, he drives a hard bargain.

0:18:490:18:51

£10 for the measures, and Phil has had his fill.

0:18:510:18:55

Mine's a pint.

0:18:550:18:56

And how do you know you're going to get a pint? It's a measure.

0:18:560:18:59

Now, this isn't a pint. This is a litre, a half litre,

0:18:590:19:03

and down it goes.

0:19:030:19:04

These are French.

0:19:040:19:06

The French equivalent of our English imperial measure.

0:19:060:19:09

And this guarantees the amount you're going to get.

0:19:090:19:11

These are made in pewter. I would think they're probably 1920s,

0:19:110:19:14

and they cost me the princely sum of £10.

0:19:140:19:18

And if they don't make a profit. I've been short-changed.

0:19:180:19:20

And with that final purchase complete just in the nick of time,

0:19:200:19:24

our speedy dealers finally apply the brakes, and tot up the totals.

0:19:240:19:28

They both started the day with £250 of their own money to spend.

0:19:290:19:33

Kate is hoping she's seen off the competition

0:19:330:19:36

with her seven purchases costing £191.

0:19:360:19:39

Phil is sure he's a shoo-in with his six items that cost £135.

0:19:410:19:46

But the only thing that matters now is profit.

0:19:470:19:51

Our deal-doing duo have spent their dosh

0:19:510:19:53

and now it's time to compare their wares.

0:19:530:19:56

Well, was it speedy or not?

0:19:570:19:59

If I hadn't got a shift on, I wouldn't have any of this.

0:19:590:20:01

-You snooze, you lose.

-Absolutely right.

0:20:010:20:04

-I've looked at your things.

-Mm?

0:20:040:20:06

-That painting's lovely.

-You like?

-I really do, yeah.

0:20:060:20:10

I just caught this painting in the corner of my eye,

0:20:100:20:13

and thought, that is lovely.

0:20:130:20:16

When you think that about something,

0:20:160:20:18

normally other people will, and it's a good thing.

0:20:180:20:22

I've got to say to you, I'm not really sure that this is me!

0:20:220:20:26

-Not quite your colour.

-Size?

-Size maybe! You never know.

0:20:260:20:30

THEY GIGGLE

0:20:300:20:32

I'm not sure about this. I think it needs a plough.

0:20:320:20:35

But I do like this. That's my sort of thing, super silver collars.

0:20:350:20:38

I'll tell you something.

0:20:380:20:41

-I'm prepared to sell you something.

-Oh, yes?

0:20:410:20:44

-I've friends who live at Willow Cottage.

-You haven't really?

0:20:440:20:47

Mm. And they say that information is all important...

0:20:470:20:51

-I think we need to do some talking.

-..and expensive.

0:20:510:20:53

Come on, we'll talk about this.

0:20:530:20:55

That was one epic race around the car boot,

0:20:580:21:01

but now, out-and-out selling warfare lies ahead.

0:21:010:21:04

The real fight for glory is mere moments away,

0:21:040:21:08

and both dealers know they'll need to shine up their stash

0:21:080:21:10

and put their best bargaining foot forward

0:21:100:21:13

if they're to emerge victorious.

0:21:130:21:15

At Fox Towers in Worcestershire,

0:21:160:21:18

Phil is analysing his rather eclectic haul.

0:21:180:21:22

That car boot is harum-scarum. Get in, get it bought, and get off.

0:21:220:21:26

Now, my tractor sign. I'm in tractor heaven around here.

0:21:260:21:30

I'm going to put that into a local auction that

0:21:300:21:33

specialises in selling all things tractor, and tractor memorabilia.

0:21:330:21:37

So, I'm hoping that will show me a profit on the £55 I paid for it.

0:21:370:21:41

My £10 pony collar.

0:21:410:21:43

My parents come from a local Worcestershire village

0:21:430:21:46

where there is now a carriage and horse museum.

0:21:460:21:49

So, I'm hopeful I can sell that there.

0:21:490:21:51

Now, this is a 19th-century mirror.

0:21:510:21:54

It cost me £20.

0:21:540:21:56

It's made out of mahogany.

0:21:560:21:57

I'm hoping that's going to make between £40-60.

0:21:570:22:00

And, for a tenner, these little French pewter measures,

0:22:000:22:03

there has to be a profit in those.

0:22:030:22:05

Look at that for a piece of elegance.

0:22:050:22:07

A silver-mounted stick.

0:22:070:22:09

All I need to do now is find somebody

0:22:090:22:12

who needs to be elegant, and can offer me a profit on £20.

0:22:120:22:16

Phil also needs to sell the Scandinavian chairs and footstool.

0:22:160:22:21

Over in Herefordshire, Kate is feeling confident about her hoard.

0:22:210:22:26

I had a great time buying at the car boot at Ford.

0:22:260:22:30

Most things were pretty affordable, as you would expect at a car boot.

0:22:300:22:33

And I'm really pleased with the selection I've got here.

0:22:330:22:36

Now, my animals were a bit of a punt.

0:22:360:22:39

And I think I may have found a safari park

0:22:390:22:42

who might like to have these on display.

0:22:420:22:45

My wine labels, I've checked out. They are actually 1990s in date,

0:22:450:22:50

although they've got a lovely Victorian style.

0:22:500:22:53

They're cast, they're silver, there's definitely a profit in those.

0:22:530:22:57

I love the desk, simply because they don't make them like this any more.

0:22:570:23:00

Although it's Victorian very much in design,

0:23:000:23:03

I think it probably dates from the 1940s.

0:23:030:23:06

It would be great to see it used, perhaps.

0:23:060:23:08

My vintage clothing is a bit of fun.

0:23:080:23:11

Funky shirt, and a very glamorous dress, actually,

0:23:110:23:14

and I think a vintage shop would take those off my hands, no problem.

0:23:140:23:18

But the piece de resistance is my painting.

0:23:180:23:21

It was my most expensive piece.

0:23:210:23:23

But I've now done a little bit of research.

0:23:230:23:26

Edgar Freyberg was a German artist who was born in 1927.

0:23:260:23:30

And I now know that seascapes just like mine were really his thing.

0:23:300:23:34

And, from looking at the auction results of his work

0:23:340:23:37

which have been sold recently,

0:23:370:23:39

paintings like this one will make anything from £200 up to £500.

0:23:390:23:44

So I think that is my winner!

0:23:440:23:48

Kate also needs to sell the Willow Cottage sign

0:23:480:23:51

and the wicker bottle basket.

0:23:510:23:53

It's time for our duo to don their thinking caps

0:23:530:23:55

and exhaust all available methods, in a bid to turn their purchases

0:23:550:23:59

into profit, and accumulate the most money for their chosen charities.

0:23:590:24:04

But, until they've shaken on it

0:24:040:24:06

and the money has changed hands, no deal is truly sealed.

0:24:060:24:09

Speedy salesman Phil isn't horsing around -

0:24:110:24:14

he's brought his pony harness to show contact Mary

0:24:140:24:17

at Hartlebury Castle in Worcestershire.

0:24:170:24:19

He paid £10 for it, but can he saddle up a pretty profit?

0:24:190:24:23

This place has a big connection with horses. Horse-drawn.

0:24:240:24:27

-Horse-powered. All things horses, doesn't it?

-Yes, definitely.

0:24:270:24:31

I was kind of hoping, let me take this off.

0:24:310:24:33

-I thought it was your new scarf(!)

-No, no.

0:24:330:24:37

I was hoping you might want to buy it off me.

0:24:370:24:39

Why do you do that?

0:24:390:24:41

Because it suits you, I think.

0:24:410:24:44

It's a change from the scarf.

0:24:440:24:46

-Can we try this again?

-Yes. Tell me what you want me to do.

0:24:460:24:50

I want you to pay a vast amount of money for this horse collar.

0:24:500:24:54

Oh, Philip, I can't pay you a vast amount of money.

0:24:540:24:57

I can pay you a little bit of money.

0:24:570:25:00

It is like the smiling assassin, isn't it?

0:25:000:25:02

You get lulled into a false sense of security by this really sweet lady.

0:25:020:25:07

Cor.

0:25:070:25:08

Is it heavy?

0:25:080:25:10

-I'd like to try and get £40 or £50 for this.

-Oh, Philip.

0:25:100:25:15

I sort of had 30, no?

0:25:150:25:18

-Is that an offer?

-That's an offer.

0:25:180:25:20

-I'll shake you by the hand.

-Really?

0:25:200:25:22

Yeah, quickly, I want to get out of here. Here you are.

0:25:220:25:25

All the best, get out while the going's good!

0:25:250:25:27

The Fox has whinnied, neighed and pulled his way to a £20 profit,

0:25:290:25:32

but hard taskmaster Mary's not done with him yet!

0:25:320:25:36

Now, Philip, as I paid that huge amount

0:25:360:25:38

-of money...

-It's well worth it.

0:25:380:25:40

..do you want to have a go at pulling the cider press?

0:25:400:25:43

-Is it possible?

-No, it's highly improbable, Mary,

0:25:430:25:46

-never mind possible.

-It was only a small pony.

0:25:460:25:50

So, this isn't ever going to work.

0:25:520:25:54

I'm never going to shift this.

0:25:540:25:56

I see what you mean.

0:25:560:25:58

Yes, it's... No, it's not doable, Philip.

0:25:580:26:00

If this is how they made cider, I can tell you, this is going to

0:26:000:26:04

take me some old time to do this.

0:26:040:26:06

Yes, come on, Phil, put your back into it!

0:26:060:26:08

Ready to open HER campaign in Hereford, Kate is in

0:26:080:26:12

high spirits, with her silver drinks labels.

0:26:120:26:14

I've given my decanter labels a little bit of a polish

0:26:150:26:18

and I am taking them to a very smart vintage shop

0:26:180:26:21

here in Hereford.

0:26:210:26:22

With £35 and some of her own elbow grease invested in them,

0:26:230:26:27

can she tempt shop buyer Candice into a purchase?

0:26:270:26:30

-So, I mean what they are is they are decanter labels.

-Yes.

0:26:300:26:34

-They are silver and English hallmarked.

-Right, OK.

0:26:340:26:37

And quite nice because you have got a set of four, all matching,

0:26:370:26:40

and they have got a matching hallmark on the maker, which is...

0:26:400:26:44

-Mind if I take a look?

-Yeah, take a closer look.

0:26:440:26:46

They are Victorian or 19th century in style, if you like,

0:26:460:26:49

with this lovely cast leafage border. The hallmark actually is for 1990s,

0:26:490:26:54

so they are pretty modern. Could you see them fitting in here?

0:26:540:27:00

Absolutely. Definitely. We do have quite a few decanters,

0:27:000:27:03

so that would blend in well. Let me just get one.

0:27:030:27:06

Ooh, you have some nice ones there.

0:27:060:27:07

-Let's take a look.

-Triple wing neck. It's lovely.

-Let's just see.

0:27:070:27:12

Oh, yeah, that looks lovely, doesn't it?

0:27:140:27:16

I don't know where you see them, but I can see the set of four

0:27:160:27:19

normally at around the couple of hundred pounds mark.

0:27:190:27:22

I would be willing to pay between £80-£150.

0:27:220:27:25

Well, if I came down to about 150 and you came up to your maximum,

0:27:250:27:30

-is that all right?

-Fantastic.

-Thank you very much, indeed.

0:27:300:27:33

-I think they look great on the decanters.

-Yes, I think so, too.

0:27:330:27:36

Kate is off to a roaring start,

0:27:360:27:38

earning a shiny £115 profit

0:27:380:27:41

for her first sale.

0:27:410:27:42

Well, that's a really satisfying start to my selling

0:27:440:27:47

and I think polishing them up made all the difference.

0:27:470:27:51

And Kate stays at the top of the class,

0:27:510:27:54

when she sells her children's school desk to local mother-of-four

0:27:540:27:58

-Krissie.

-What do you think of it?

-I think it is perfect for Archie.

0:27:580:28:02

He is six now and it will give him a little private space

0:28:020:28:05

in the bedroom to do his homework.

0:28:050:28:06

She sells it for £55,

0:28:060:28:09

putting £30 into her profit purse.

0:28:090:28:12

And not to be outdone, Phil thinks he's walking the walk to victory.

0:28:120:28:17

You've either got style or you can act with style

0:28:170:28:21

and I've come to my local theatre, hoping that they are going to add

0:28:210:28:25

my silver-mounted walking stick to their props department.

0:28:250:28:29

The jaunty 1920s stick cost him £20,

0:28:300:28:34

but will theatre assistant Gemma want to take it off his hands?

0:28:340:28:38

Nor for yours, neither. You have ungently, Brutus, stole from my bed.

0:28:380:28:44

And yesternight, at suppertime, you suddenly arose and...

0:28:440:28:47

PHILIP UNSUBTLY CLEARS THROAT

0:28:470:28:49

-Hello, there!

-Gosh. Gemma.

0:28:490:28:52

Philip, how are you? Good to see you.

0:28:520:28:55

I was hoping that you might find a role for a new supporting member

0:28:550:29:01

-of cast I might have for you.

-There are always roles available.

0:29:010:29:05

-Really?

-There could be.

-Really?

0:29:050:29:07

-Well, that's what I was thinking of.

-Oh, really?

-Yep.

0:29:070:29:10

I was thinking for your props department.

0:29:100:29:12

-Fine specimen he is, too.

-Yeah. Silver mounted and I was thinking...

0:29:120:29:17

-It's rather nice.

-Jeeves and Wooster?

0:29:170:29:19

-I can see that. Bit of '40s. Bit of dandy.

-Yeah.

0:29:190:29:21

-Yeah.

-Very dandy. Wouldn't that look fantastic in one your productions?

0:29:210:29:26

It is a lovely stick, but it is just a stick.

0:29:260:29:29

-It cost me £20.

-£20.

-I was hoping that I might get 50 quid for it.

0:29:290:29:35

-It could fit the role...

-Yeah.

-..but £50 doesn't fit the budget,

0:29:350:29:39

-I'm afraid!

-What is the budget?

-As close to 20 as you can come down to.

0:29:390:29:45

I tell you what, my one and final shot is 30.

0:29:450:29:49

-Go on, then. Deal.

-You're an angel. Now, can you do that...

0:29:490:29:53

-You know that bit where they...

-Here we go.

-..they jump up and kick

0:29:530:29:56

both heels over there with the stick. Can you do that?

0:29:560:29:59

-Now you are asking!

-Can you? Show me.

0:29:590:30:01

THEATRE APPLAUSE

0:30:040:30:06

A standing ovation, look.

0:30:060:30:08

Would you have any other vacancies, at all?

0:30:080:30:12

No, no vacancies at this time, I'm afraid.

0:30:120:30:14

What, nothing?

0:30:140:30:15

AUDIENCE BOOING

0:30:180:30:20

He may not have a future in the theatre, dah-ling,

0:30:200:30:22

but his career as a dealer is stable,

0:30:220:30:24

as he adds that £10 profit to his pocket

0:30:240:30:27

and then rings up another £10

0:30:270:30:29

when he sells his 19th-century mirror to antiques dealer

0:30:290:30:32

Lee in Worcester.

0:30:320:30:34

-MIMICS DAVID ATTENBOROUGH:

-We're in the midst of a selling bonanza

0:30:380:30:42

and keen to get back to her natural selling habitat,

0:30:420:30:45

Kate has brought her collection of lead animals

0:30:450:30:48

to a place where wild beasts roam freely,

0:30:480:30:52

stride majestically across the plains

0:30:520:30:55

of the West Midlands Safari Park and frolic to their hearts' content.

0:30:550:30:58

I was hoping for a wildlife park, to sell my little toy animals.

0:30:580:31:02

Here I am in the West Midlands, at a safari park, on a pretty

0:31:020:31:06

murky morning. I have come to meet Bob,

0:31:060:31:08

who is Director of Wildlife here and he has expressed an interest

0:31:080:31:13

in my little animals. I am just hoping the real-life safari animals

0:31:130:31:17

have had their breakfast.

0:31:170:31:19

With her eyes on the prize, and in the back of her head,

0:31:200:31:23

can Kate tempt Director of Wildlife Bob to part with more than

0:31:230:31:27

the £5 she paid?

0:31:270:31:29

Bob, I know we spoke on the phone,

0:31:300:31:32

but I've brought my little toy animals for you.

0:31:320:31:34

Spread them out on your safari vehicle here.

0:31:340:31:36

You can see, they are made of lead and they have got this slightly funny

0:31:360:31:41

furry coating, almost. They are not just painted.

0:31:410:31:44

The paint has a texture. They are not in perfect condition.

0:31:440:31:47

They have been played with and they would have been made

0:31:470:31:50

for a wildlife set, if you like, for a child's set to play with.

0:31:500:31:54

I think they date from the very early part of the 20th century.

0:31:540:31:58

-What do you think of them?

-They are very interesting, aren't they?

0:31:580:32:01

Yes, I think the vet will be disappointed there is nothing

0:32:010:32:04

for him to do with these. The accountant will be pleased,

0:32:040:32:07

cos they'll not cost anything to feed. The Education Department

0:32:070:32:12

might find a use for them, but they would have to be circumspect,

0:32:120:32:14

-as they are made of lead.

-We know lead is poisonous, obviously,

0:32:140:32:18

so we have to handle with caution, but in an education department,

0:32:180:32:21

as long as that was pointed out, we are not going to have children

0:32:210:32:24

-becoming unhealthy through handling.

-It would be done under supervision.

0:32:240:32:28

Shall we talk price? I know I said you, very roughly,

0:32:280:32:30

I was looking between, sort of, between £50 and £100, very loosely.

0:32:300:32:34

Where do you see them?

0:32:340:32:35

-What would be your, sort of, price?

-Erm...

0:32:350:32:37

probably split the difference. 75.

0:32:370:32:39

I have to say, they are not mint condition.

0:32:390:32:42

I had a very good buy, actually, with them, so I am happy

0:32:420:32:45

-with 65, something like that.

-Yeah, I think that is fair enough.

0:32:450:32:50

-OK. Fantastic.

-Done deal.

-Thank you very much.

-Pleasure.

0:32:500:32:54

-Are there lions lurking around here?

-There are, out there in the mist,

0:32:540:32:57

there are some lions waiting.

0:32:570:32:59

I can't hear them roaring at the moment,

0:32:590:33:01

but if we leave them much longer before giving them their breakfast,

0:33:010:33:05

-they will be, so we should go.

-Right. I'd best be on my way, Bob.

0:33:050:33:08

-Lovely to meet you.

-And you. Bye-bye.

0:33:080:33:10

"ANIMAL MAGIC" THEME

0:33:100:33:13

So, Kate makes a hasty exit

0:33:130:33:15

and her balance sheet expands by a pretty wild £60.

0:33:150:33:20

Well, I don't think I've ever done a sale in front of such

0:33:220:33:24

an unusual audience and with so many eyes pinned on me.

0:33:240:33:28

Buy my toys are going to an educational use,

0:33:280:33:30

which I think is a roaring success.

0:33:300:33:32

And our wildcat doesn't stop there, adding £23 to her profit pot,

0:33:370:33:40

when she sells the wicker drinks basket

0:33:400:33:42

to Hereford-based vintage-shop owner, Polly,

0:33:420:33:45

which brings us to the halfway mark.

0:33:450:33:48

Our experts both have three items up their sleeves for round two,

0:33:480:33:52

so who's blazing a trail and who's dragging their heels?

0:33:520:33:55

So far, Kate has sold four of her seven items,

0:33:550:33:58

racking up a profit of £228.

0:33:580:34:01

Phil has done three deals,

0:34:010:34:03

with a smaller profit of just £40 in his pocket.

0:34:030:34:07

So, Miss Bliss has an impressive lead on her rival.

0:34:090:34:11

The Fox will need to come into round two all guns blazing,

0:34:110:34:14

if he's to stand a chance against this vixen of the vintage.

0:34:140:34:19

In this game of profit, sometimes it pays to take a risk

0:34:190:34:22

and Phil is just about to take a big one, with his tractor sign.

0:34:220:34:26

I'm going to put this into a tractor auction and I'm taking

0:34:260:34:30

a real gamble, because it is going in unreserved.

0:34:300:34:33

Cost me £55. Could make a fiver, could make 100.

0:34:330:34:39

Well, it's out of Phil's hands now, as the Ledbury

0:34:410:34:45

Agricultural and Machinery Auction is just about to start!

0:34:450:34:49

Lot 507, and this lovely Zetor sign there, gentleman. There you go.

0:34:490:34:54

£100, for it. 100, to go on it. £100. 100. 100.

0:34:540:34:59

100, I've got. £100 bid.

0:34:590:35:00

£100 bid. At 110. 110, 110. 120, 120, 120.

0:35:000:35:05

It's a positive start. Will this be the sale that turns

0:35:050:35:08

Phil's fortunes around?

0:35:080:35:10

We'll find out later, Meanwhile, Kate's in Ludlow,

0:35:100:35:13

with the dress and shirt that cost her £14.

0:35:130:35:16

She's targeted a vintage clothes shop

0:35:160:35:18

and is hoping owner Nina will fall in love with them.

0:35:180:35:22

Well, I'm hoping these might just be of interest.

0:35:260:35:30

The dress is, perhaps, the nicer of the two.

0:35:300:35:33

And you have got a shirt there. I think it's 1970s.

0:35:330:35:37

-So, do you think I am right on the date?

-Yes, I think so.

0:35:370:35:40

-I think this is late '70s.

-So, that is the dress.

0:35:400:35:44

The shirt, I really bought because the graphic print I just thought

0:35:440:35:49

-was quite striking.

-Yes, it is rather. That, again, is late '70s...

0:35:490:35:56

-Mm-hm.

-..just because of the size of the collar

0:35:560:35:59

and the narrow cuffs, rather than the wide cuffs.

0:35:590:36:02

-So, that is very late '70s?

-Yeah.

0:36:020:36:04

So, are they the sort of thing that you think might go in your shop?

0:36:040:36:08

Yes, I mean, I think they are probably good for younger people,

0:36:080:36:12

who are a bit adventurous with their vintage.

0:36:120:36:15

So, I think that would be, you know, quite fun, actually.

0:36:150:36:18

Yes? All right. So, what sort of money do you see them at?

0:36:180:36:21

I would probably pay up to £20 each for them.

0:36:210:36:25

Could I just shift you slightly up and say around 50 for the two?

0:36:250:36:31

-Yeah.

-Fantastic, I really hope you do well on them. Thank you.

0:36:310:36:35

And Kate catwalks out, a cool £36 up.

0:36:360:36:39

So, you see, Phil, buying girlie does work.

0:36:410:36:44

You should try it some time.

0:36:440:36:46

And proving that being in profit never goes out of fashion,

0:36:460:36:49

our cheeky saleswoman adds another £85 to her bulging bag of dosh,

0:36:490:36:55

when she sells her Willow Cottage sign to property developer Adrian.

0:36:550:36:59

With Kate charging ahead on six sales to Phil's three,

0:36:590:37:02

it's time for The Fox to put a call in to the auctioneer

0:37:020:37:06

and find out whether his tractor sign has made

0:37:060:37:08

enough money to dig him out of trouble.

0:37:080:37:10

Keep your fingers crossed. I've got everything crossed.

0:37:100:37:14

Howard, how are you?

0:37:140:37:16

First off, did you have a good sale and second off,

0:37:160:37:19

did I have a good sale?!

0:37:190:37:21

You're joking?

0:37:210:37:23

You're joking?!

0:37:230:37:24

170 quid. You are an absolute... Oh, I'm over the moon, mate.

0:37:240:37:28

That's really fantastic.

0:37:280:37:29

Yes, after auction costs,

0:37:290:37:31

Phil makes a rather healthy profit of £94.60.

0:37:310:37:36

What a comeback!

0:37:360:37:37

Well, Kate's got one final item left to sell -

0:37:370:37:40

her seascape painting, and she's set sail

0:37:400:37:43

for Ludlow gallery owner Mark, in the hope of stowing away with more

0:37:430:37:47

than the £90 she paid for it,

0:37:470:37:50

-but she's soon scuppered.

-I think it's a very nice painting,

0:37:500:37:53

but, unfortunately, I don't think it would fit in with what

0:37:530:37:57

-we are selling.

-Mm-hm.

0:37:570:37:59

-Ah, that's a shame.

-I'm so sorry about that.

0:37:590:38:01

Well, that's disappointing. Art is all about personal taste.

0:38:030:38:07

Back to the drawing board.

0:38:070:38:09

Oh, dear. That leaves Kate up a certain creek without a paddle.

0:38:090:38:13

She needs to find a buyer - and fast!

0:38:130:38:14

Phil is now down to his final two items.

0:38:160:38:18

He's hoping to sell that set of pewter measures

0:38:180:38:21

that cost him £10 to Worcester wine bar owner Mark.

0:38:210:38:24

There we are, Mark. That makes the set. What do you reckon?

0:38:240:38:28

They look great, yeah. So, what is the origin of these?

0:38:280:38:30

They are French, made out of pewter. I would think they are probably

0:38:300:38:34

early 20th century.

0:38:340:38:35

Clearly, any measure or weight that you use in this country

0:38:350:38:40

-has to be approved by Weights & Measures.

-Yeah.

0:38:400:38:43

So, you can't use these. They are for decorative purposes only.

0:38:430:38:47

-I just thought that they might do well in a place like this.

-Yeah.

0:38:470:38:51

They'd look the part. Are you interested? You hadn't seen them?

0:38:510:38:54

No. They are interesting. What are they worth?

0:38:540:38:56

-I think they should average out at a tenner each.

-50, for the set?

0:38:560:38:59

What about if we met halfway and said 60 quid? Would that be a deal?

0:38:590:39:03

-Yeah, you've got a deal.

-You are a gentleman, sir.

0:39:040:39:06

He certainly is, adding £50 to The Fox's coffers.

0:39:060:39:11

Phil doesn't sit around, either. He sells his modern chairs

0:39:120:39:14

and stool to 20th-century furniture dealer Clive,

0:39:140:39:17

making a £30 profit.

0:39:170:39:20

And that brings the curtain down on his selling spree.

0:39:200:39:23

And that's the end of my car boot. I just wonder how Kate's got on.

0:39:230:39:28

Kate, however, still has £90 invested in her oil painting.

0:39:280:39:33

She's struggled to find a buyer for it, but with sails at full mast,

0:39:330:39:37

she heads to mid-Wales, where she's found a potential purchaser.

0:39:370:39:40

Will Brecon gallery owner Ian like the seascape

0:39:400:39:43

or will it leave her washed up?

0:39:430:39:45

-This is the picture I told you about.

-OK.

-All right.

0:39:450:39:48

-Bigger than I expected.

-Oh, is it? Have a little look.

0:39:480:39:52

Mm, I like it. It is very nice, actually.

0:39:520:39:54

So, I mean, looking at the canvas, I would put it, sort of, late 1950s.

0:39:540:40:00

The artist, Edgar Freyberg, was born in 1927. He was born in Germany

0:40:000:40:06

and I particularly like the way he has done the waves.

0:40:060:40:09

This bit here. It is quite wispy and really alive.

0:40:090:40:12

We have got an artist who paints similar to this. It's very nice.

0:40:120:40:16

-Do you think it would be something for the gallery?

-I like it,

0:40:160:40:19

so, if I like it, it gives me the confidence to sell it.

0:40:190:40:22

That's good. That's what I go on, as well - good gut feeling.

0:40:220:40:25

Well, money-wise, I'm looking for around the, sort of, £350 mark.

0:40:250:40:30

-How does that sound to you?

-OK. I have seen this artist before.

0:40:300:40:36

-We tried to buy one years ago.

-Oh, did you?

0:40:360:40:38

The 300 is probably a little bit heavy.

0:40:380:40:41

Well, he's making the right noises,

0:40:410:40:44

but does Ian throw Kate a lifeline or will this be a shipwreck?

0:40:440:40:47

You'll have to wait and see,

0:40:470:40:49

as this money-making marathon is almost over

0:40:490:40:52

and our selling sprinters have pushed the boundaries of bargaining.

0:40:520:40:55

but only one can take gold. Who will it be?

0:40:550:40:58

They both started the day with £250 of their own money to spend.

0:40:580:41:03

Kate bought seven items, costing £191.

0:41:030:41:07

Phil made six purchases and spent a total of £135.

0:41:090:41:13

But one question still remains...

0:41:130:41:16

Who has made the most profit? All the money that Kate and Phil

0:41:160:41:20

have made will go to charities of their choice, so without

0:41:200:41:22

further ado, let's find out who is today's

0:41:220:41:25

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

0:41:250:41:29

-How are you?

-Hello, hello!

-Good to see you.

-How are you doing?

0:41:290:41:33

-That was harum-scarum.

-Wasn't it just? Did you keep the pace up at...

0:41:330:41:36

I did the tractor sign and I did really well with that,

0:41:360:41:40

-but it went a bit downhill after. You?

-I went to a zoo!

-Really?!

-Yeah.

0:41:400:41:46

-I met a whole herd of cows.

-What did you take to a zoo?

0:41:460:41:48

-My little animals.

-Remember that donkey collar?

-Yeah.

0:41:480:41:53

They put me in a bloomin' cider press, pulling the thing round.

0:41:530:41:55

-I wish I could have seen that!

-You will! Anyway...

0:41:550:42:00

-My painting...

-Ah. That was...

-You liked my painting.

0:42:000:42:03

That was a goodie.

0:42:030:42:04

I did have a bit of a journey with it. This kind of journey with it,

0:42:040:42:08

-but in the end it, sort of, went there.

-Not down there?

-There.

0:42:080:42:12

-Did you do very well?

-Well, let's have a look, shall we?

0:42:120:42:16

-Ready?

-Three, two one, go!

0:42:160:42:18

-Whoo-hoo!

-You did have a journey and a half, didn't you?!

0:42:180:42:22

-Hellfire. Was that all the painting?

-Other bits and bobs, along the way.

0:42:220:42:26

-What did you do with the painting?

-A gallery, in the end.

-Really?

-Yeah.

0:42:260:42:29

-Made jolly good money?

-Took a little while, though.

0:42:290:42:32

-Tell me how much.

-Let's go and have a cup of tea.

0:42:320:42:34

Yes, Kate "Absolute" Bliss triumphs and it was in part down

0:42:340:42:38

to the sale of that seascape painting...

0:42:380:42:41

-260, I could do.

-260, yeah, that's good for me.

0:42:410:42:44

Brilliant.

0:42:440:42:46

..making her a magnificent 170 profit,

0:42:460:42:49

all of which helped her

0:42:490:42:51

push past her rival to a comfortable victory!

0:42:510:42:54

I'm absolutely thrilled with that result and I am certain

0:42:540:42:58

it was the seascape, in the end, that swung it.

0:42:580:43:00

I think I gave Kate too much of a tip at the car boot.

0:43:000:43:03

I said to her, "Get out early and shop." And she did.

0:43:030:43:07

She absolutely smacked my bottom!

0:43:070:43:09

Well, they both need to pack their bags,

0:43:090:43:12

because tomorrow, Phil has the chance to get his own back

0:43:120:43:15

at an antiques market in Belgium.

0:43:150:43:17

Challenged to spend up to £250 of their own money, antiques experts Phil Serrell and Kate Bliss battle it out at a car boot in West Sussex. Kate gives a masterclass in haggling and Phil takes to the stage in order to sell a stick. But who will win at the final curtain?
