Each week, one pair of duelling

0:00:170:00:18

0:00:180:00:20

daily challenge...

0:00:200:00:22

Catch me if you can!

0:00:220:00:23

The axeman cometh.

0:00:230:00:24

Putting their reputations

0:00:260:00:28

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

0:00:360:00:39

Get in there!

0:00:390:00:40

Stand by and prepare to be stunned as antiques angel Kate Bliss

0:00:430:00:47

faces gutsy gavel swinger Phil Serrell in the toughest

0:00:470:00:51

battle our incredible experts have fought yet.

0:00:510:00:55

Our daredevil dealers will be tested to the absolute limit as they're

0:00:550:00:59

sent on a mission to scour the country and continent

0:00:590:01:02

to track down top treasures they can sell on for top dollar.

0:01:020:01:06

This is the Showdown!

0:01:060:01:08

Coming up...

0:01:080:01:10

Kate's hoping to be in pole profit position...

0:01:100:01:12

That was fantastic!

0:01:120:01:15

Phil unleashes his inner wheeler-dealer.

0:01:150:01:17

Del Boy! How are you?

0:01:170:01:20

But will our dealers make a profit in the toughest Showdown test -

0:01:200:01:24

the auction?

0:01:240:01:25

Drop the hammer, drop the hammer.

0:01:250:01:27

Will you please wipe that smile off your face? Thank you.

0:01:270:01:29

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

0:01:300:01:33

In today's Showdown,

0:01:470:01:49

our dealers draw their swords in this ultimate duel.

0:01:490:01:52

Major profit margins

0:01:520:01:53

and the accolade of top dealer are the prizes at stake.

0:01:530:01:57

First up is a savvy maiden with a shrewd eye for a bargain.

0:01:570:02:00

She's a polished professional with a taste for profit

0:02:000:02:03

and the skill to secure it. It's Herefordshire's finest -

0:02:030:02:06

Kate "Absolute" Bliss.

0:02:060:02:09

I am determined to beat the Fox.

0:02:090:02:13

Her opposition?

0:02:130:02:14

The dealing dynamo with the mind of a maverick

0:02:140:02:17

and the moves of a stealth missile.

0:02:170:02:19

He knows what he wants and just how he's going to get it -

0:02:190:02:22

he's the master from Malvern,

0:02:220:02:24

it's Phil "The Fox" Serrell.

0:02:240:02:26

Today's the day I need to take the band off the bundle.

0:02:260:02:31

Our experts have £1,000 of their own money to

0:02:320:02:34

spend across four different locations - an auction,

0:02:340:02:37

a foreign market, an antiques fair,

0:02:370:02:41

and a car-boot sale.

0:02:410:02:43

Once they've hunted down their hoard,

0:02:430:02:45

they must use their wit and wisdom to sell the lot

0:02:450:02:48

and any profit they make will go to a charity of their choice.

0:02:480:02:52

But the Showdown has a twist.

0:02:520:02:55

At least half their items must be sold at the special Showdown

0:02:550:02:58

Auction, where our dealers have no control over the buying public.

0:02:580:03:02

As the drama unfolds, they will have to stand by

0:03:020:03:05

and watch as their items go under the hammer.

0:03:050:03:09

Only one can be victorious.

0:03:090:03:11

The other will have to do the walk of shame.

0:03:110:03:14

So, Kate Bliss and Phil Serrell, may the odds ever be in your favour.

0:03:140:03:20

It's time for the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Showdown.

0:03:200:03:24

-Hello.

-Hiya, lovely.

-Hiya.

-Good to see you.

0:03:240:03:28

-So this is it, the last challenge, the Showdown.

-Oh, you nervous?

0:03:280:03:33

-I've got the rules.

-Go on, then.

0:03:330:03:35

"You must each buy two items at everyone of your regular

0:03:350:03:38

"Put Your Money challenges. You have £1,000 to spend."

0:03:380:03:44

"You can sell up to four items wherever you want.

0:03:440:03:47

"The rest will be sold at the Showdown Auction

0:03:470:03:51

"in direct competition with your opponent.

0:03:510:03:54

"The winner is the expert..." I think that's one of us,

0:03:540:03:56

"..who makes the most profit. Good luck."

0:03:560:03:59

Good luck to you, my friend. Let's get in there.

0:03:590:04:02

The tension is in the air as our treasure hunting titans prepare to

0:04:040:04:08

clash as their momentous

0:04:080:04:09

challenge begins.

0:04:090:04:10

It's Round 1, The Auction.

0:04:100:04:13

They're at Stroud Auction Rooms

0:04:130:04:14

in Gloucestershire

0:04:140:04:15

where there is a speciality

0:04:150:04:16

toy and collectors' sale.

0:04:160:04:18

So, what are they planning?

0:04:180:04:21

I'm probably not going to put the pieces in today

0:04:210:04:24

into the Showdown Auction because buying at auction and then selling

0:04:240:04:27

again at auction doesn't usually mean a vast amount of profit.

0:04:270:04:31

Out of all the things I buy,

0:04:310:04:33

the things I have no control over at all are the auction items

0:04:330:04:37

so I think I'm going to try and make those the less expensive items.

0:04:370:04:41

Our battling behemoths must each bag two items

0:04:410:04:44

so let the bidding begin!

0:04:440:04:47

Phil Serrell, the auction room high achiever, gets

0:04:470:04:50

straight down to business bidding on a 1930s book of country

0:04:500:04:54

pursuits with an estimate of £20 to £40.

0:04:540:04:58

Bids in with me at £16. Is there £18?

0:04:580:05:00

That's £16, a bid with me. £18, £20 with me, £22.

0:05:000:05:03

I'm out at £22 in the room.

0:05:030:05:04

Is there £5? £25 on the internet. £28, sir? £28 in the room.

0:05:040:05:07

Is there £30?

0:05:070:05:08

At £28 I am selling.

0:05:080:05:10

Snaffles' prints are hugely collectable,

0:05:100:05:13

particularly in the countryside

0:05:130:05:14

so I think I bought that really rather cheaply.

0:05:140:05:17

The hunted becomes the hunter

0:05:180:05:20

and The Fox pays £32.20

0:05:200:05:22

costs included.

0:05:220:05:25

Now, it was published in 1935.

0:05:250:05:28

It's called Osses And Obstacles

0:05:280:05:30

and it's by Snaffles, who was world-famous for his prints

0:05:300:05:34

at that time and it's basically all about horseback pursuits.

0:05:340:05:38

I'm not a fan of hunting but what I love about this, I think

0:05:380:05:42

the fox normally always gets away.

0:05:420:05:44

Desperate to get into the race for the Showdown title, Kate gears

0:05:440:05:47

up to grab a collection of toy cars with a guide of £50 to £80.

0:05:470:05:52

OK, this is the one I want.

0:05:520:05:54

£70 I start, £75, £80, £85, £90, £95.

0:05:540:05:58

£100, £110 on the screen.

0:05:580:06:01

An internet bidder has pushed the price way past

0:06:010:06:04

the estimate but Miss Bliss isn't giving up.

0:06:040:06:06

Lady's bid of £140.

0:06:060:06:08

-£150, another room bid at £150.

-Oh, no.

0:06:080:06:11

£160.

0:06:110:06:13

That is far too much but I'm in at £160.

0:06:130:06:16

-£160.

-That's for me.

0:06:160:06:18

£160. They are nice, though.

0:06:180:06:20

They should be for double the estimate!

0:06:200:06:22

Kate pays a whopping £188.80

0:06:220:06:26

fees included.

0:06:260:06:27

Where I think there could be potentially a profit

0:06:270:06:31

is by selling them to different buyers.

0:06:310:06:34

The racing cars to one person, maybe the aeroplanes to another.

0:06:340:06:37

I have a feeling I've got my work cut out.

0:06:370:06:41

Well, Kate had better have a contacts book full of toy

0:06:410:06:43

vehicle fans as she wastes no time

0:06:430:06:45

in adding a little fire engine to

0:06:450:06:48

her vast collection

0:06:480:06:49

for £35.40, including costs.

0:06:490:06:52

Now, I looked at this fire engine quite late last night

0:06:530:06:56

when the sale was on view.

0:06:560:06:58

It's in great condition, it's got its box and it looked to be going

0:06:580:07:01

really cheap at £30

0:07:010:07:04

so this is a bit of a punt.

0:07:040:07:06

Yes, Kate may have secured her two items

0:07:090:07:10

but the auction room is still in full swing.

0:07:100:07:13

And it seems Kate isn't the only one with a penchant for toy cars.

0:07:130:07:16

Phil's planning on being in pole bidding position for this

0:07:160:07:20

vintage racer with a guide price of £50 to £80.

0:07:200:07:24

£35, £38, £40, £42, £45.

0:07:240:07:27

£48, £50, £55, £60...

0:07:270:07:29

Just look at the concentration.

0:07:290:07:31

£80, £85, £85...

0:07:310:07:33

£90, £95? No?

0:07:330:07:36

£90 net bid. I'm selling it...

0:07:360:07:38

£95, comes back in.

0:07:380:07:40

I don't know why I've done that!

0:07:400:07:41

I'm selling at £95.

0:07:410:07:43

GAVEL THUMPS

0:07:430:07:45

Sold, 397.

0:07:450:07:46

He was in, he was out, he was shaking it all about.

0:07:460:07:48

Phil's done the hokey cokey

0:07:480:07:50

and turned the bidding around,

0:07:500:07:53

spending £112.10, including costs.

0:07:530:07:55

The Vanwall racing car,

0:07:550:07:57

an English Grand Prix car from the late 1950s.

0:07:570:08:01

Now, this is a model by Tri-ang. Great make.

0:08:010:08:05

And the thing about toys is that they need to be mint and boxed.

0:08:050:08:09

Well, it's boxed and it looks pretty mint to me.

0:08:090:08:11

Our auction room aficionados have survived Round One and spent big.

0:08:130:08:17

Miniature vehicles have been the flavour of the day

0:08:170:08:20

but which dealer will drive into the sunset of ultimate victory?

0:08:200:08:23

Let's tot up the totals so far.

0:08:230:08:25

Both our experts started the Showdown

0:08:260:08:28

with £1,000 of their own money to spend.

0:08:280:08:31

Kate has spent £224.20,

0:08:310:08:34

which means she has £775.80

0:08:340:08:37

left in the kitty.

0:08:370:08:40

Phil's haul has cost him £144.30

0:08:400:08:44

leaving him £855.70

0:08:440:08:46

for the next three rounds.

0:08:460:08:48

And so begins Round Two,

0:08:500:08:52

the Foreign Market.

0:08:520:08:53

Our speedy spenders have been

0:08:530:08:55

sent to the Sint-Truiden antiques

0:08:550:08:56

market in Brussels, where they'll need to purchase two items to

0:08:560:08:59

add to their Showdown haul.

0:08:590:09:01

Phil is first out of the blocks as he spots a garden set

0:09:020:09:06

he likes the look of.

0:09:060:09:08

Is 40 euro any good?

0:09:080:09:09

No. 50.

0:09:090:09:11

-45?

-50.

-OK.

0:09:110:09:13

That's a quick deal, isn't it?

0:09:130:09:15

It certainly was, Phil.

0:09:150:09:17

And at £40.98

0:09:170:09:19

he seals the deal

0:09:190:09:20

on the teak garden set.

0:09:200:09:21

And for all you furniture fans out there, Foxy has got a very

0:09:210:09:25

nifty trick for determining the origin of wooden garden items.

0:09:250:09:29

It's definitely Indonesian.

0:09:290:09:30

Do you know how I know?

0:09:300:09:32

-It says here, look. "Made in Indonesia".

-Oh!

0:09:320:09:34

And that's always a good clue, my friend.

0:09:340:09:36

Yes, impressive stuff. Nothing gets past the Fox's beady eye.

0:09:380:09:41

And he's on a roll

0:09:410:09:43

and sticking with his theme of 'things to sit on in the sunshine'.

0:09:430:09:47

He spots a chair that he'd like to add to his collection.

0:09:470:09:50

5 euros?

0:09:500:09:51

Yes. That's for nothing.

0:09:510:09:53

-It's for nothing?

-Almost.

0:09:530:09:56

Almost for nothing. 4 euros.

0:09:560:09:57

HE LAUGHS

0:09:570:09:59

I've been saving up.

0:09:590:10:00

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you very much indeed.

0:10:010:10:04

So just 4 euros, or £3.28 later,

0:10:040:10:08

and Phil hopes he's sitting on a profit.

0:10:080:10:10

I guess it's probably 1960s, something like that.

0:10:100:10:13

It was 4 euros. How can I fail to make a profit on that?

0:10:130:10:18

And in the meantime, I could always hire it out.

0:10:180:10:21

While Phil dreams of all the money he hopes to make, Kate has

0:10:230:10:26

spotted some vintage crockery she hopes will make her a crock of cash.

0:10:260:10:30

-How much is this?

-15.

0:10:300:10:32

-From the years...1950.

-1950s?

0:10:320:10:36

This is basically nursery ware.

0:10:360:10:38

And it is transfer printed with lovely little nursery

0:10:380:10:42

figures of children dressing up.

0:10:420:10:44

You can't do 10?

0:10:440:10:46

No, no, I don't do this for these things.

0:10:460:10:48

-OK, so 15. I can do 15.

-Thank you.

0:10:480:10:51

That's £12.30 in sterling.

0:10:530:10:55

And she thinks the set is mashing.

0:10:550:10:57

A plate, a bowl and a trio.

0:10:570:11:00

That is a side plate, cup and saucer

0:11:000:11:02

and this beaker,

0:11:020:11:04

all in lovely condition.

0:11:040:11:05

Somebody has really looked after the set,

0:11:060:11:08

so I better make sure I do too.

0:11:080:11:10

Yes, don't go dropping it, old Butterfingers Bliss.

0:11:110:11:14

She is certainly in the zone now

0:11:140:11:16

and swiftly splashes out

0:11:160:11:17

another 15 euros or £12.30

0:11:170:11:20

on a pot cupboard

0:11:200:11:21

with a special purpose.

0:11:210:11:22

It would sit beside a bed.

0:11:220:11:24

And in this little cupboard below, it would house a chamber pot.

0:11:240:11:28

Made of oak. Typically Edwardian.

0:11:280:11:30

But it's not. It's actually very modern.

0:11:300:11:33

But it has got a good marble top.

0:11:330:11:35

The best way to maximise my profit is to sell it privately.

0:11:350:11:40

It might need a little bit of TLC first, though.

0:11:400:11:43

They are halfway through their buying bonanza

0:11:450:11:48

and both kept their costs down on foreign soil.

0:11:480:11:51

But winning this Showdown rests on how much

0:11:510:11:53

they sell their items for back in Blighty.

0:11:530:11:55

With £1,000 of their own money

0:11:570:11:58

to spend, they have now bought

0:11:580:12:00

four items each.

0:12:000:12:02

Kate's purchases have cost her

0:12:020:12:03

£248.80,

0:12:030:12:06

leaving the heart with £751.20

0:12:060:12:08

in her kitty.

0:12:080:12:10

Phil has spent £188.56,

0:12:100:12:13

leaving him with £811.44

0:12:130:12:16

for the next two rounds.

0:12:160:12:18

Time for Round Three

0:12:190:12:21

at the antiques fair.

0:12:210:12:23

Their third battle ground is the Ardingly antiques

0:12:230:12:25

and collectables fair in West Sussex,

0:12:250:12:27

where they will be pursuing the most profitable plunder.

0:12:270:12:30

But before the buying begins, our pair have time for a catch-up.

0:12:300:12:34

-Hey!

-How are you?

-How are you doing?

0:12:340:12:35

-Half done already!

-Where did that go?

0:12:350:12:38

-I know, just frightening, isn't it?

-Yeah.

0:12:380:12:40

I think the frightening thing for me is that I haven't really got anything

0:12:400:12:43

that I've earmarked for the auction yet.

0:12:430:12:46

What bothers me is I haven't bought anything I really think is

0:12:460:12:48

-quite meaty.

-I'm the same.

0:12:480:12:50

I mean, I really want to buy

0:12:500:12:51

something of quality that is going to do well at auction.

0:12:510:12:54

Then I think I'm going to follow you.

0:12:540:12:56

-Well, you are going to have to catch me first.

-Right.

0:12:560:12:59

Yes, the race is on,

0:13:010:13:02

and Phil is first to shine the light on a potential buy.

0:13:020:13:05

-Is this PAT tested?

-Yeah, it is all tested and done

0:13:050:13:08

and works.

0:13:080:13:10

The best I can do on that is 150 quid, if it's any good.

0:13:100:13:14

Uh...

0:13:140:13:15

How about 175?

0:13:150:13:18

I've got to sell it, so if I give 150 for it, I think

0:13:180:13:22

I can ask perhaps...

0:13:220:13:24

-185, 195.

-160 and it is yours.

0:13:240:13:27

I think this is a really cool thing. It is a marriage.

0:13:290:13:32

It would never have started life out like this. The tripod,

0:13:320:13:36

it's a surveyor's theodolite or level stand.

0:13:360:13:39

And some clever man has got a theatre light that would've hung

0:13:390:13:42

in the gantry of a French theatre

0:13:420:13:45

in the 1940s, turned it upside down

0:13:450:13:47

and put it on here. Really, really wicked. I think it is a cool thing.

0:13:470:13:51

Yes, the Fox is beaming, but it is Miss Bliss who strikes

0:13:510:13:55

the next blow, buying this moulded glass grouse for £55.

0:13:550:13:59

The best bit is that there is a little signature down here,

0:13:590:14:02

which happens to say...Lalique.

0:14:020:14:05

Now, Lalique is a very well-known name associated with glass models.

0:14:050:14:11

And this is very much a late 20th-century piece.

0:14:110:14:14

Now, I'm sure the Fox, if he'd seen the grouse,

0:14:140:14:16

would have been after it first.

0:14:160:14:18

But, um...too late.

0:14:180:14:20

Hm, Kate is full of fighting talk.

0:14:220:14:24

But Phil retaliates with his final buy.

0:14:240:14:26

The charmer seals the deal with a kiss on this rhubarb forcer

0:14:260:14:30

for £35.

0:14:300:14:32

You put it over your rhubarb and it forces it to grow.

0:14:320:14:35

There is no great age to this. It is terra-cotta.

0:14:350:14:38

But it has got this pattern to it. How do you recreate that look?

0:14:380:14:41

Well, you've got to put yogurt on it,

0:14:410:14:44

bury it for a while,

0:14:440:14:45

and that promotes the moss and lichen growth...

0:14:450:14:47

(Or cavalry and cow muck.)

0:14:470:14:49

It works!

0:14:490:14:51

Pew!

0:14:510:14:52

Hm, let's hope Kate's next purchase is something less smelly.

0:14:520:14:56

-Could I have a look at your little shoe, please?

-Yeah.

0:14:560:14:58

Oh.

0:14:580:14:59

-What is the very best you could do for me on that one?

-I could do...45.

0:14:590:15:04

-That is the rock-bottom.

-Is it?

-That is 20 off.

0:15:040:15:07

-You couldn't do 40 just for me?

-Oh...

-No?

0:15:070:15:10

I tell you what, we can do a very silly price for you, and that is 41.

0:15:100:15:14

41, done.

0:15:140:15:16

It looks like a novelty silver shoe.

0:15:160:15:19

It is in fact made of pewter.

0:15:190:15:21

It dates from the Georgian period. And it is beautifully crafted.

0:15:210:15:26

But it is not just a novelty boot. It was actually used as a snuff box.

0:15:260:15:31

And the lid flips open.

0:15:310:15:33

And that is where the gentleman of the early 19th century

0:15:330:15:37

would put his snuff.

0:15:370:15:38

I've got high hopes for that one.

0:15:380:15:40

And with that, Kate's kicked us to the antiques fair finish line.

0:15:420:15:45

Both our treasure hunters are desperate to win, so let's see

0:15:450:15:49

where they stand after Round Three.

0:15:490:15:50

From her £1,000 budget,

0:15:520:15:54

Kate has spent £344.80,

0:15:540:15:56

which leaves £655.20

0:15:560:15:59

for the final round.

0:15:590:16:00

Phil has spent a total of £383.56

0:16:020:16:06

so far, leaving him with £616.44

0:16:060:16:09

for Round Four.

0:16:090:16:11

So, all that cash comes with them

0:16:130:16:15

to Round Four - the Car Boot.

0:16:150:16:17

Our bargain busters have arrived at Ford Airfield, in Sussex,

0:16:170:16:20

for their final profit-finding fling.

0:16:200:16:22

And with no time to waste, Phil wields his cash cleaver

0:16:230:16:27

and brings it down hard on this butcher's block for £100.

0:16:270:16:31

I've got a real soft spot for butcher's blocks.

0:16:310:16:34

Both my father and my grandfather, well, they were both butchers.

0:16:340:16:37

It sort of missed a generation when it got to me.

0:16:370:16:40

Now, this particular example is Austrian

0:16:400:16:43

because it says just here - Innsbruck.

0:16:430:16:45

The bottom, well, I've got to be truthful - it's a bit rough.

0:16:450:16:49

So I need to do some work there.

0:16:490:16:51

But I love it. I hope someone else does.

0:16:510:16:53

Yes, he's on a roll, and spots a couple of barrels

0:16:540:16:57

and takes a punt with the seller.

0:16:570:16:59

What's the debt on them?

0:16:590:17:01

These are salt glazed.

0:17:040:17:05

Now, the term salt glaze comes from the fact that

0:17:050:17:08

when they are fired, you would lob a handful of salt into the kiln,

0:17:080:17:12

and it produces this lovely glaze on them.

0:17:120:17:14

Originally, these would probably have been spirit or wine

0:17:140:17:18

or ale barrels.

0:17:180:17:20

They cost me £35 each.

0:17:200:17:22

£70, the pair.

0:17:220:17:25

And with that, Phil has completed his Showdown haul.

0:17:250:17:28

His rival has scanned the stalls and seems to have the measure of them.

0:17:280:17:32

What's this?

0:17:320:17:34

-A horse measuring stick.

-Oh, yes, I can see. Isn't that a nice one?

0:17:340:17:38

-This is the case, is it?

-That's the case.

-Oh, shame!

0:17:380:17:41

Oh, isn't that a shame? The top has come off.

0:17:410:17:44

How much is that?

0:17:440:17:46

-Owes me 100.

-Does it?

-Hm.

0:17:460:17:49

Could you do 90?

0:17:490:17:50

-I'm actually losing money at 100.

-£100, OK.

0:17:500:17:53

Now, antique measures are still a really buoyant

0:17:550:17:57

area of the collectors' market.

0:17:570:17:59

And I have bought this one because it is a lovely example of a horse

0:17:590:18:03

measure, which is a little bit more unusual.

0:18:030:18:06

And at well over 100 years old, it dates from the Edwardian period.

0:18:060:18:09

Now, £100 may sound expensive to you,

0:18:090:18:13

but I still think there is a profit there.

0:18:130:18:17

With one item left to scoop up,

0:18:170:18:19

Kate hotfoots it towards a Georgian ladle she'd spotted earlier,

0:18:190:18:23

but she does have some concerns.

0:18:230:18:25

The thing about ladles is very often you'd have them in a pair.

0:18:250:18:28

-Yeah.

-And so selling one on its own wouldn't be quite as good.

0:18:280:18:32

What could you do for me?

0:18:320:18:34

-Can we do business on 30?

-If you can do 25 cash, I'll take it away.

0:18:340:18:38

25 cash?

0:18:380:18:40

You got a deal.

0:18:400:18:42

-You're a star.

-Thank you.

0:18:420:18:44

Now, I knew what this was even from a distance.

0:18:440:18:47

It is called a toddy ladle

0:18:470:18:48

and was used to measure out an alcoholic tipple.

0:18:480:18:51

But I also knew that this one is from Scotland.

0:18:510:18:55

Turn it over and the hallmark bares that out because you have got

0:18:550:18:58

a little thistle, which tells me that it was made in Edinburgh.

0:18:580:19:01

But it was made over 200 years ago.

0:19:010:19:04

So with £25,

0:19:040:19:08

this is going to auction

0:19:080:19:10

and should make a profit.

0:19:100:19:12

So, there we go. They're all bought up.

0:19:120:19:15

Let's look at the figures.

0:19:150:19:17

Our rummaging rivals each started

0:19:180:19:20

out with £1,000

0:19:200:19:21

of their own money to spend.

0:19:210:19:23

Kate's been cautious with her cash

0:19:230:19:25

and has spent almost £470

0:19:250:19:27

of her kitty,

0:19:270:19:29

while Phil's splashed out slightly

0:19:290:19:31

more in his bid for victory,

0:19:310:19:33

and finishes having spent

0:19:330:19:34

almost £554.

0:19:340:19:36

Before our dealers turn their minds to selling,

0:19:360:19:39

what do they make of their wares?

0:19:390:19:41

-We're finished!

-Wow!

-We got all our stuff!

-What a relief that is!

0:19:420:19:46

Today, I am really pleased. I bought a Scottish toddy ladle.

0:19:460:19:50

Oh, that's cool.

0:19:500:19:51

For £25.

0:19:510:19:53

How did you do that?

0:19:530:19:54

My favourite thing could be my little snuff box,

0:19:540:19:57

which I bought at Ardingly, at the UK fair.

0:19:570:20:00

And that I am going to put into auction definitely.

0:20:000:20:03

My favourite thing is my Vanwall motorcar.

0:20:030:20:05

-My racing car.

-What are you putting into auction?

0:20:050:20:07

-Don't know yet.

-Are you doing a damage limitation exercise?

0:20:070:20:10

-Don't know yet.

-And only putting really cheap...

0:20:100:20:13

-I bet you are, aren't you?

-Don't know yet.

0:20:130:20:15

-Is he? I reckon you are.

-I'll see you at the auction.

0:20:150:20:19

Hm...

0:20:190:20:20

Well, dealers, there's a long road ahead before the Showdown Auction,

0:20:240:20:27

but it is a race against time,

0:20:270:20:29

as they have to beef up their

0:20:290:20:30

bartering brawn and find private sellers for half their items.

0:20:300:20:34

The other half will enter the auction of terror,

0:20:340:20:38

where their profit will be at the whim of the bidding public.

0:20:380:20:41

What goes in is vitally important.

0:20:410:20:43

So, what are the big plans of attack?

0:20:430:20:46

Kate is in her kitchen in Herefordshire.

0:20:460:20:49

Now, my favourite piece is the collection of model toys.

0:20:490:20:54

And I think these are lovely.

0:20:540:20:56

Now, these four pieces at the front are my four pieces

0:20:560:20:59

I have decided to send into auction.

0:20:590:21:01

We have got my lovely Georgian silver ladle,

0:21:010:21:03

which SHOULD make a profit if there is any justice in the world.

0:21:030:21:08

I've got a lovely, little 19th-century snuff box.

0:21:080:21:11

I've got my nursery transfer-printed china.

0:21:110:21:14

The bad thing about this is that it is Belgian,

0:21:140:21:17

which hasn't got such a strong market over here, in the UK.

0:21:170:21:20

But I am still hoping a collector will be charmed by the little

0:21:200:21:23

motifs we have got on this.

0:21:230:21:26

And then, we've got my Lalique grouse.

0:21:260:21:29

I knew when I bought it that it was a modern piece,

0:21:290:21:32

and now I know is post-1978.

0:21:320:21:35

So a little bit more modern than I thought,

0:21:350:21:37

but I think there is still room for a profit.

0:21:370:21:41

So Kate also needs to line up private buyers for her

0:21:410:21:44

pot cupboard, toy fire engine, and Edwardian horse measure.

0:21:440:21:48

Over at Serrell HQ, Phil's deciding what he's putting into the auction.

0:21:480:21:52

Now, if I go through these lots,

0:21:530:21:55

this is Osses And Obstacles,

0:21:550:21:58

by Snaffles. I think that is a definite winner for auction.

0:21:580:22:02

My next auction lot is going to be these barrels here.

0:22:020:22:05

I think they're quite a fun thing

0:22:050:22:06

and I don't think they are expensive. I should be OK

0:22:060:22:09

with those. My rhubarb forcer...

0:22:090:22:11

Now, if you live in the country, who doesn't want to force their rhubarb?

0:22:110:22:14

So those are three cheapish sort of lots.

0:22:140:22:16

And I am sort of toying with the idea that I'd like to have

0:22:160:22:19

just a little bit of jeopardy.

0:22:190:22:20

So, for me, it is either the theatre light or the butcher's block

0:22:200:22:24

that is going to be my fourth item in auction.

0:22:240:22:26

And I think I'm going to put this in.

0:22:260:22:29

I'm going to get the bottom painted in that sort of trendy light blue

0:22:290:22:33

grey colour.

0:22:330:22:34

And I think that will do quite well.

0:22:340:22:36

So those are going to be my four auction items.

0:22:360:22:38

So that means Phil has to find buyers for his theatre light,

0:22:380:22:41

garden furniture, 1960s chair, and toy racing car.

0:22:410:22:46

Our determined dealers must now knuckle down

0:22:480:22:50

and turn all their talk into antiques selling action.

0:22:500:22:53

And remember, until they've shaken on it

0:22:530:22:55

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

0:22:550:22:59

It's Kate "Absolute" Bliss who's first into the fray,

0:23:000:23:03

hoping to bag that crucial opening sale.

0:23:030:23:05

Now, she's a well brought-up girl with a high set of morals,

0:23:050:23:09

so of course won't be resorting to any underhand tactics...

0:23:090:23:12

Will she?

0:23:120:23:13

I'm here at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb.

0:23:130:23:15

And I am here to meet...

0:23:150:23:17

Philip Serrell's wife!

0:23:170:23:20

She is actually a really good friend of mine and a bit of a petrol head.

0:23:200:23:23

And I'm hoping that she'd like to buy a little model car that is

0:23:230:23:27

not dissimilar to her racing car.

0:23:270:23:29

The sneaky little minx!

0:23:320:23:34

All's fair in love and war...and dealing, it seems!

0:23:340:23:37

The car came as part of a larger collection

0:23:370:23:39

and owes her ten pounds.

0:23:390:23:41

So can she drive up the price

0:23:410:23:43

with racetrack regular Mrs Bryony Serrell?

0:23:430:23:45

# Bad to the bone! #

0:23:450:23:47

Well, I have brought you something I'm sort of hoping you might like.

0:23:470:23:51

It doesn't go as fast.

0:23:510:23:53

But it is a little model which doesn't look dissimilar

0:23:530:23:57

to your Lotus.

0:23:570:23:59

No. It is very sweet, actually.

0:23:590:24:01

-And this little car dates from, what, late '60s, early '70s.

-OK.

0:24:010:24:04

-It is cute, isn't it?

-What sort of year is yours?

-1967.

0:24:040:24:08

-One for the collection?

-Um... I feel a bit of a turncoat being here,

0:24:080:24:11

you know, looking at this.

0:24:110:24:13

-What are you thinking on this?

-Well, I'm looking for

0:24:130:24:15

anywhere from sort of £20 to £40, something like that.

0:24:150:24:19

That's rather a lot, isn't it? What about 25, then?

0:24:190:24:22

Hm-mm. Could I bump you up just a fiver and say 30?

0:24:220:24:25

-Meet me in the middle, how about that? A nice round figure.

-30... Hm.

0:24:250:24:28

-You are against Philip, though, aren't you?

-I am against Phil.

0:24:280:24:31

THEY LAUGH

0:24:310:24:33

-OK, 30. Shall we go 28?

-All right.

0:24:330:24:36

It's a swift start for Kate

0:24:380:24:40

as she nets a profit of £18.

0:24:400:24:42

And she can't resist

0:24:420:24:43

a lap of honour...

0:24:430:24:44

I'm ready!

0:24:440:24:45

Go on, put your foot down!

0:24:500:24:52

She's no Lewis Hamilton, that's for sure!

0:24:530:24:56

That was fantastic!

0:24:590:25:01

Well, while she made a tidy sum off Phil's wife,

0:25:010:25:04

Kate struggles to sell the rest of her vehicles

0:25:040:25:06

individually as planned, and ends up

0:25:060:25:09

making a slight loss of £3.80

0:25:090:25:11

when she sells them in bulk to

0:25:110:25:13

toy car collector Chris in Hereford.

0:25:130:25:15

But she redeems herself

0:25:150:25:17

with a profit of £6.60,

0:25:170:25:19

selling the toy fire engine

0:25:190:25:20

to the same buyer.

0:25:200:25:21

It's a mixed start from Kate.

0:25:210:25:23

But there's no first-night nerves from Foxy.

0:25:230:25:26

If you're going to sell a theatre light, there is only one place to

0:25:260:25:29

take it. And I'm at my local theatre, in Worcester,

0:25:290:25:32

and I am hoping that my light is going to find itself centre stage

0:25:320:25:35

in there.

0:25:350:25:36

# Like a super trooper... #

0:25:360:25:38

He's spent £1.50 getting it PAT tested,

0:25:380:25:41

so needs to perform like a superstar to get more than

0:25:410:25:43

the £161.50 that it owes him.

0:25:430:25:46

But will theatre director Chris like it?

0:25:460:25:49

We have action, look at that!

0:25:500:25:53

-Very good.

-Now, is this of interest to you?

0:25:530:25:56

I probably wouldn't use it actually as a light, Phil.

0:25:560:26:00

But I would use it on the stage as a prop.

0:26:000:26:02

Well, I was hoping I might get 250 for it.

0:26:020:26:04

I would be looking more about...

0:26:040:26:07

170, 180, something like that.

0:26:070:26:10

Come on, sharpen your pencil a bit.

0:26:100:26:12

200, final offer.

0:26:120:26:14

-You're a gentleman.

-Lovely.

-Thank you very much indeed.

-Job done.

0:26:140:26:17

That's a £38.50 profit,

0:26:170:26:20

and he's come over all Thespian.

0:26:200:26:22

To sell or not to sell,

0:26:220:26:25

that is the question.

0:26:250:26:26

It's to sell, Phil, that's the whole point!

0:26:260:26:29

Now, someone who does have the measure of this show is Kate,

0:26:290:26:32

who doesn't even let the small matter of no daylight hold her back.

0:26:320:26:36

It's really late in the day and here I am in Gloucestershire,

0:26:360:26:39

at a stable yard.

0:26:390:26:41

And I have come to meet Robert, who is a producer of show horses.

0:26:410:26:45

Now, I'm hoping to learn a thing or two about my horse measure.

0:26:450:26:48

Kate paid a rather hefty £100 for it,

0:26:480:26:52

so will equine expert Robert think it's worth it?

0:26:520:26:55

Well, let me show you my measure.

0:26:550:26:57

This one dates from about 1900.

0:26:570:27:00

-I've never actually seen one produced like that.

-Like this?

0:27:000:27:03

I've seen lots of measurements, but not in a case.

0:27:030:27:05

They wouldn't accept this these days for measuring cos it's not

0:27:050:27:09

-got a spirit level.

-Ah!

0:27:090:27:11

-So the modern measures...

-You see, it's wobbly.

0:27:110:27:13

So, do you think this is something you would like to buy, Robert?

0:27:130:27:16

Obviously, perhaps not to use on your horses,

0:27:160:27:19

but as a sort of collector's item,

0:27:190:27:21

-is it something...?

-I would've thought so, yes.

0:27:210:27:23

I was looking for around the £150 to £200 mark.

0:27:230:27:27

-How do you feel about that?

-Yes, you... Possibly slightly higher

0:27:270:27:32

than one would've thought.

0:27:320:27:34

-Shall we try it on one of your horses...

-Yes, do.

0:27:340:27:36

-..and see what you think?

-Yep, we will.

0:27:360:27:37

-Where are you going to measure him?

-The highest point of his wither,

0:27:370:27:41

-which is there.

-Hm-mm.

0:27:410:27:42

He's 15 hands and a half an inch, which is perfect for his age.

0:27:420:27:47

-What do you think?

-I think you've asked quite high.

-Right.

0:27:470:27:51

But I would bid you 125.

0:27:510:27:54

Could I say just five pounds more, say 130?

0:27:540:27:57

-We'd have a deal.

-Brilliant. Thank you very much.

-Not at all.

0:27:570:28:00

And Kate rides off into the night

0:28:000:28:02

with a profit of £30,

0:28:020:28:04

leaving the measure

0:28:040:28:05

in the right HANDS. Ha!

0:28:050:28:06

Miss Bliss is storming ahead on three sales to Foxy's one -

0:28:060:28:10

time for Phil-Boy to unleash his inner wheeler dealer.

0:28:100:28:14

# Bush, Bush, Bush, Bush, Bush

0:28:140:28:16

# No income tax, no VAT

0:28:160:28:19

# No money back, no guarantee.

0:28:190:28:22

# Black or white... #

0:28:220:28:24

He's on his way to see a man who's having his garden landscaped

0:28:240:28:27

in the hope of turning his garden furniture into a nice

0:28:270:28:30

little earner.

0:28:300:28:31

-Hi, John!

-Del-Boy, how are you?!

0:28:340:28:39

He who dares, Phil!

0:28:390:28:40

How are you, my friend?

0:28:400:28:42

-I'm very well, Phil, how are you?

-Lovely to see you.

0:28:420:28:45

-Now, can I show you what I've got for you?

-Yes, yeah.

0:28:450:28:47

Let's go have a look then, shall we?

0:28:470:28:49

Look at that.

0:28:490:28:51

Don't they look fantastic?

0:28:510:28:53

-Yes, they do.

-Just a little bit of that oil in them.

0:28:530:28:55

I constantly have a lot of people around here,

0:28:550:28:57

and they're always saying, "Is there somewhere to sit?"

0:28:570:29:00

And there are places to sit, as you see, but never enough.

0:29:000:29:03

So, how old are they? I mean, are they...?

0:29:030:29:05

-I think they're Elizabethan(!)

-Elizabeth...

-Hm.

0:29:050:29:07

-HE LAUGHS

-The Second.

0:29:070:29:09

Elizabethan, hm.

0:29:090:29:11

-They're made in Indonesia!

-Yes, but they're teak, look, an-teak.

0:29:110:29:15

-Ah.

-There's an an-teak, and there's an an-teak.

-Oh, antique, yes.

0:29:150:29:18

-Another an-teak.

-Yes, of course, yes.

0:29:180:29:20

I bought these just outside Brussels. And they cost me 50 euros.

0:29:200:29:25

What I was really hoping for was £20 a chair and I'll give you the table.

0:29:250:29:28

How much?!

0:29:280:29:30

This isn't going very well, this, is it?

0:29:300:29:32

HE LAUGHS

0:29:320:29:34

£80 isn't going to work, is it?

0:29:340:29:37

Well, not really, no. I was thinking more about half that, really.

0:29:370:29:40

What do you think about that?

0:29:400:29:42

No, I don't like the sound of that at all.

0:29:420:29:43

-HE LAUGHS

-I don't like that at all, really.

0:29:430:29:46

What about if I sold them to you for... I don't know, 60 quid?

0:29:460:29:49

I'll tell you what I'll do...

0:29:490:29:50

If I give you 60 quid...

0:29:500:29:52

-Yeah.

-..will you take that yellow van out of here?

-Now?

-With you?

0:29:520:29:57

-Deal, done.

-It's a deal.

-I'll get moving now!

0:29:570:29:59

HE LAUGHS

0:29:590:30:02

Lovely jubley!

0:30:020:30:04

That's a profit of £19.02

0:30:050:30:08

from Boycie, and he's out of there!

0:30:080:30:10

And whilst he's in the mood

0:30:150:30:16

for hawking furniture,

0:30:160:30:17

he adds £1.72 to his profit pot

0:30:170:30:20

when he sells his 1960s chair

0:30:200:30:21

to dealer Alison in Worcester.

0:30:210:30:23

Our dealers now have one item left each

0:30:240:30:27

to sell privately before the mighty Showdown Auction.

0:30:270:30:30

Kate has given her £12.30 pot cupboard a once-over

0:30:300:30:33

with some paint she had sitting around and is hoping

0:30:330:30:36

Hereford-based vintage shop owner

0:30:360:30:38

Polly will fall in love with

0:30:380:30:40

its newly spruced-up state.

0:30:400:30:42

There you go.

0:30:420:30:43

Oh, I do like it.

0:30:430:30:44

-Yes, I do like it.

-You do?

-Yeah.

0:30:440:30:47

Well, I was hoping for around the sort of £100 to £150 mark.

0:30:470:30:51

-Yes.

-How does that sound to you?

0:30:510:30:54

I'd be happy with 80.

0:30:540:30:56

OK. If I come down and meet you at, say, 90...

0:30:560:31:00

85.

0:31:000:31:01

-Done.

-Brilliant.

-I'm happy with that.

-Amazing!

0:31:010:31:04

That's an impressive profit

0:31:040:31:06

of £72.70. And with that,

0:31:060:31:08

Kate has sold all of the items

0:31:080:31:10

she planned to sell privately.

0:31:100:31:12

Well, what a relief, that all came good.

0:31:120:31:14

It just goes to show,

0:31:140:31:15

it's worth sometimes putting in a little bit of elbow grease.

0:31:150:31:19

You should try it sometime, Mr Serrell.

0:31:190:31:22

Well, Phil knows more about axle grease than elbow grease!

0:31:220:31:25

So, cheeky Kate sold her toy car to Phil's wife,

0:31:250:31:28

but Foxy's had to go further afield to Derby with his 1950s racer.

0:31:280:31:33

And he's revved up with ambition.

0:31:330:31:36

I'm here at Donnington Park, which has not only got a race track,

0:31:360:31:39

but also a collection of Formula 1 cars.

0:31:390:31:42

And I'm here to meet Kevin Wheatcroft,

0:31:420:31:43

who I know has got an interest in these.

0:31:430:31:45

# Back in the fast lane! #

0:31:450:31:48

But with over £112 invested in it,

0:31:480:31:50

will Kevin give Phil a speedy profit?

0:31:500:31:53

Well, look at this, a Vanwall. And there is one, two, three, four,

0:31:550:31:59

five and a body.

0:31:590:32:00

-A full range.

-Well, I've got to be honest with you.

0:32:000:32:02

I went to an auction and I did think of you, cos I saw this.

0:32:020:32:05

-Wow.

-Which is...

-Wow, look at that.

-..a Vanwall.

0:32:050:32:08

-I've heard of these, but I've never actually seen one...

-Have you not?

0:32:080:32:12

..in the flesh, let alone in its box.

0:32:120:32:14

I would be interested, yeah.

0:32:140:32:15

I was hoping to get close to something like 200 quid, if I could.

0:32:150:32:18

-I would definitely be happy in giving you that for it.

-Really?

0:32:180:32:21

Because it's in its box,

0:32:210:32:23

makes a lot of sense to me. And having these ones out here...

0:32:230:32:25

-That's fantastic.

-It can go in the display case.

0:32:250:32:28

Kevin's a fast mover

0:32:280:32:30

and gives Foxy a profit of £87.90.

0:32:300:32:34

With the chequered flag in sight, let's see who's in pole position

0:32:350:32:38

and who's got a flat.

0:32:380:32:41

Both our experts have now sold

0:32:410:32:42

four items.

0:32:420:32:43

Kate is doing well with a profit

0:32:430:32:45

so far of £123.50

0:32:450:32:49

But it's Phil who's leading

0:32:490:32:50

at this stage.

0:32:500:32:52

His private sales have earned him

0:32:520:32:53

a profit of just over £147.

0:32:530:32:57

And now, it's finally here -

0:32:570:32:59

the moment we've all been waiting for with baited breath -

0:32:590:33:03

the Showdown Auction!

0:33:030:33:04

This is a terrifying place where our dealers have absolutely no

0:33:040:33:08

influence over what happens.

0:33:080:33:11

Their fate is in the hands of the

0:33:110:33:13

bidders at Pump House Auctions, in Hampshire.

0:33:130:33:15

So, are our two brave warriors bearing up or crumbling under

0:33:150:33:19

the pressure?

0:33:190:33:20

I sort of feel there is a lot riding on this auction.

0:33:200:33:23

Well, do you know what?

0:33:230:33:24

I'm quite nervous because I've sort of done a worst-case scenario.

0:33:240:33:28

And if I have a bad day, I'm sort of £100 down the bin, really.

0:33:280:33:33

I'm similar, I would say. But, hey,

0:33:330:33:36

the sun's going to shine, positive feeling.

0:33:360:33:39

-Come on, let's go and have a look.

-OK, come on then.

0:33:390:33:42

So, our pair have understandably got the jitters.

0:33:430:33:46

The only thing we know at this stage is they'll be paying

0:33:460:33:49

the saleroom's standard selling commission and house fees.

0:33:490:33:52

Before the hammer starts to fall,

0:33:520:33:54

there's one last chance to look over each other's lots.

0:33:540:33:57

That's a sweet little lot. And worryingly, I think

0:33:570:33:59

she could do all right with that.

0:33:590:34:02

This looks like it should be old,

0:34:020:34:04

but I've lifted up the lid,

0:34:040:34:06

and that...is brand-new.

0:34:060:34:07

Katie, my love, I think your grouse has turned into a turkey.

0:34:070:34:12

That paint looks pretty fresh.

0:34:120:34:14

It's not a dissimilar colour to my pot cupboard either.

0:34:140:34:17

He's been pinching my ideas!

0:34:170:34:19

This is just an absolute steal and I wish I'd seen it.

0:34:190:34:22

I normally like salt-glazed items,

0:34:220:34:24

but there's something about these that don't exactly set me on fire.

0:34:240:34:29

Maybe it's the cushions on top.

0:34:290:34:30

It's a lovely little Scottish ladle.

0:34:300:34:34

The only thing is, Kate, we're in Hampshire!

0:34:340:34:37

I've seen examples of Snaffles' books go for really big money

0:34:370:34:40

if they're in great condition,

0:34:400:34:42

but is anybody going to want

0:34:420:34:44

a volume of Snaffles that looks like it's been caught in the rain?

0:34:440:34:47

And we're off!

0:34:490:34:50

The first of our items under the hammer is Phil's rhubarb forcer.

0:34:500:34:54

He paid £35 for it.

0:34:540:34:56

Well, you know, fair dues -

0:34:560:34:57

I don't think you could get many more people in here.

0:34:570:34:59

Not unless they were swinging from the chandelier.

0:34:590:35:01

The real question is, how many of them want their rhubarb forced?

0:35:010:35:04

Couple of bids here. 18. 20.

0:35:040:35:06

2 here. 24 anywhere?

0:35:060:35:08

-This is all looking rather good, isn't it(?)

-No.

0:35:080:35:11

-Got a bidder on the front row.

-28 only. 30 anywhere?

0:35:110:35:14

Ouch.

0:35:140:35:15

At £28 then...

0:35:150:35:18

That is for 303.

0:35:180:35:21

Will you please wipe that smile off your face?

0:35:210:35:23

Thank you.

0:35:230:35:24

10. 12 anywhere?

0:35:240:35:26

Rhubarb's off the menu.

0:35:260:35:28

Oh, a crushing start for Phil.

0:35:280:35:31

He sells it for less than he paid, and there are those auction fees

0:35:310:35:35

to think about. After costs,

0:35:350:35:36

Phil makes a loss of £15.38.

0:35:360:35:39

But it's still all to play for and he could redeem himself

0:35:400:35:43

quickly with his upcycled butcher's block, which is up next.

0:35:430:35:47

It owes him £100.

0:35:470:35:49

I would have this in my kitchen, I like it.

0:35:490:35:51

-And I think it's got a good chance of making...

-You might have to!

0:35:510:35:54

£90.

0:35:540:35:56

100 there is. 110. 120.

0:35:560:35:59

5. 130. 5.

0:35:590:36:01

Oh, it's proving popular!

0:36:010:36:02

-£190. 5. Yes?

-What?!

-200.

0:36:020:36:06

And 10?

0:36:060:36:08

220. 230. 240.

0:36:080:36:11

And 5. 250.

0:36:110:36:13

-You are joking!

-5. 260.

0:36:130:36:16

£255, then...

0:36:160:36:18

Geez!

0:36:180:36:19

That's an incredible price!

0:36:210:36:23

I knew that all the time, really.

0:36:230:36:25

My goodness me!

0:36:250:36:26

The block chops Phil a huge profit

0:36:260:36:28

of £103.04 after fees,

0:36:280:36:31

but Phil has a question for the buyer.

0:36:310:36:33

What would you have gone to?

0:36:330:36:35

-400, 500.

-Oh, go away!

0:36:350:36:37

You're a star. Well done, you. Thank you very much.

0:36:390:36:41

-How come we've missed out on the butcher's block market?

-Hold on.

0:36:410:36:45

I'm going to go see if she's into barrels as well.

0:36:450:36:47

I'll be back in a minute.

0:36:470:36:49

Well, hopefully she is, Phil, because they're up next.

0:36:490:36:52

He paid £70.

0:36:520:36:53

Bid's here. 38. 48 for them.

0:36:530:36:57

50 there is.

0:36:570:36:58

Phil needs bids to reach £90 to be in profit.

0:36:580:37:02

-£70. 2 anywhere?

-That's enough now.

0:37:020:37:05

Sell them for £70 then...

0:37:050:37:07

Yours, sir.

0:37:090:37:10

-Do you know what?

-What?

-I really wouldn't sweat, you're still ahead.

0:37:100:37:15

Well, Phil rolled out the barrels...

0:37:150:37:17

and then fell under them,

0:37:170:37:18

suffering his second loss

0:37:180:37:20

of the day - £16.44 after fees.

0:37:200:37:23

I think what I should have done is just bought three more

0:37:230:37:27

butcher's blocks and brought them all here and then nothing else

0:37:270:37:30

and everything would have been fine.

0:37:300:37:32

Phil is three items down and his auction has been

0:37:320:37:35

a white-knuckle ride of extreme highs and lows.

0:37:350:37:38

Time now for Kate to test her mettle,

0:37:380:37:40

as her Georgian silver toddy ladle is up next.

0:37:400:37:43

-What did you pay for it?

-So, I paid 25.

0:37:430:37:46

It's got to make £33.

0:37:460:37:49

I've got £30. 2 is there.

0:37:490:37:52

-Drop the hammer.

-32 there is.

0:37:520:37:53

-34. 36.

-Drop the hammer!

0:37:530:37:56

38. 40. Two anywhere?

0:37:560:37:57

Drop the hammer. Drop the hammer.

0:37:570:37:59

-£40 then...

-Drop it. Drop it.

0:37:590:38:01

-Yours, madam.

-£40.

-Phew!

0:38:010:38:04

I've made money. Not a huge amount, but I have made money.

0:38:040:38:07

Yes, you have, Kate -

0:38:070:38:09

£4.32 after fees.

0:38:090:38:11

A small profit,

0:38:110:38:12

but better than a loss!

0:38:120:38:13

Can she turn a bigger profit with her little glass grouse?

0:38:130:38:17

It cost her £55, but she's done the calculations

0:38:170:38:20

and knows what she needs to break even.

0:38:200:38:23

It's got to make £70, pretty much.

0:38:230:38:26

I've got 55 for that.

0:38:260:38:28

-60 is there.

-Come on!

0:38:280:38:30

-At £60 then...

-Go on!

0:38:300:38:32

-579.

-Oh, no!

-The bird's flown.

-Ooh... £60!

0:38:330:38:37

The grouse hits the ground,

0:38:370:38:39

losing Kate £9.52 after costs.

0:38:390:38:42

Her children's tea set is up next.

0:38:420:38:44

It cost £12.30 in Belgium. Will it do better than the birdie?

0:38:440:38:48

You cannot fail.

0:38:480:38:50

I think it's got a chance.

0:38:500:38:51

Couple of bids. 25. I've got 28 for the lot.

0:38:510:38:54

30 anywhere? 30, bid 2. 34.

0:38:540:38:57

I've 34. 36 anywhere?

0:38:570:39:00

Sell it then at £34...

0:39:000:39:02

Yes! £34.

0:39:040:39:06

Miss Bliss has nearly doubled her money there with

0:39:060:39:09

a profit of £12.17.

0:39:090:39:11

But there's no time to celebrate - her lots are coming thick

0:39:110:39:15

and fast, and she's about to try her luck with her final item -

0:39:150:39:19

the 19th-century snuff box.

0:39:190:39:21

And she's got £41 invested.

0:39:210:39:24

It's got to make just over £50 for me to break even.

0:39:240:39:27

I think this could go either way.

0:39:270:39:28

38. I've got 40. And I've got 42.

0:39:280:39:32

44 there is. 46. 48.

0:39:320:39:34

-At £48 then...

-Oh, go on, go on, go on!

0:39:340:39:38

Yours, madam.

0:39:380:39:40

I think you're sort of unlucky.

0:39:400:39:41

Just a couple of pounds below what Kate was hoping for -

0:39:410:39:45

but every pound counts at the auction. And after fees,

0:39:450:39:47

the snuff box sticks the boot in with a disappointing

0:39:470:39:50

£5.21 loss.

0:39:500:39:52

Phil's last chance at glory lies with his 1930s Snaffles' book.

0:39:530:39:58

It owes him just over £32.

0:39:580:40:00

Did you drop it in a puddle?

0:40:000:40:02

No. We've all seen better days.

0:40:020:40:04

My prediction is you're going to break even.

0:40:040:40:06

Couple of bids. I've got 35 and I've got 42.

0:40:060:40:09

44 anywhere?

0:40:090:40:11

-50 pence profit. I told you!

-44 there is. 46. 48.

0:40:110:40:14

50 I've got. 2, at 52.

0:40:140:40:16

Sell it then at £52 with me...

0:40:160:40:20

-Well done. That's money.

-Absolutely right.

-Well done!

0:40:200:40:24

Well, that's turned out nicely, hasn't it?

0:40:240:40:27

So Phil ends on a high -

0:40:270:40:29

that's £6.82 profit after fees,

0:40:290:40:31

and the book is closed

0:40:310:40:33

on the auction.

0:40:330:40:34

Well, fair dues, the boy done good. Well done.

0:40:340:40:37

-I better go get the teas in.

-I think so.

0:40:370:40:41

And that's it. There were peaks and troughs, but they survived.

0:40:410:40:44

We'll reveal the victor in just a moment.

0:40:440:40:46

But first, let's remind ourselves what

0:40:460:40:48

they spent originally.

0:40:480:40:50

Both our experts started out

0:40:510:40:53

with £1,000 of their own money.

0:40:530:40:55

Kate spent almost half that -

0:40:550:40:56

£469.80 -

0:40:560:40:59

while Phil spent a little bit more -

0:40:590:41:01

£555.06,

0:41:010:41:04

including PAT testing costs.

0:41:040:41:06

All of the money that Kate and Phil have made from today's challenge

0:41:080:41:11

will go to charities of their choice.

0:41:110:41:13

So, let's find out who is today's

0:41:130:41:15

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Showdown Champion.

0:41:150:41:19

-Well...

-It's the big one!

-How are you?

0:41:190:41:21

Do you know? I got to appear on stage. I sat in a Vanwall.

0:41:210:41:25

And the best thing is, I made a profit out of Boicey!

0:41:250:41:28

That's pretty good going, I would say.

0:41:280:41:30

-You sold something to my wife.

-Well, all's fair in love and war.

0:41:300:41:34

-So how were all your other things?

-Well, OK.

0:41:340:41:37

Painted my pot cupboard, that went well.

0:41:370:41:39

And I got to measure a 15-hand hunter.

0:41:390:41:42

-Not for me, that would have terrified me.

-Beautiful animal.

0:41:420:41:44

Yeah. But, I mean, for me, the auction was a one-lot wonder.

0:41:440:41:47

Well, the auction was amazing for you.

0:41:470:41:49

You had a right flyer, didn't you?

0:41:490:41:51

-Well, just the one lot.

-As butcher's blocks go, it was a nice one.

0:41:510:41:55

-And the rest of it was a bit...

-I'm not quite sure it was THAT nice.

0:41:550:41:58

Well, yeah, I was two up, two down, so...

0:41:580:42:00

-Very up and down.

-So where are we going to be here?

0:42:000:42:02

-I know, I really don't know.

-Shall we have a look?

-Hm.

0:42:020:42:05

-Three.

-You going to count?

-Two. One.

0:42:050:42:07

-Go!

-Whoa!

-Ooh!

0:42:070:42:10

Look, it's me, ha-ha!

0:42:100:42:11

Yes, Phil triumphs - and it was the butcher's block that made him

0:42:130:42:16

his meatiest profit.

0:42:160:42:17

But it doesn't end there.

0:42:170:42:19

Both our experts have been building up their profit pots over

0:42:190:42:22

a week of challenges. So, who is the overall winner?

0:42:220:42:26

Three.

0:42:260:42:28

Two.

0:42:280:42:29

One. Go!

0:42:290:42:31

-Well done, you!

-Oh-ho-ho!

-That's close.

-That is pretty close.

0:42:310:42:35

-Well, that was a huge amount of fun.

-It was great fun, wasn't it?

0:42:350:42:39

-And you've been a fantastic partner.

-And you too.

0:42:390:42:41

-A winning partner.

-Do you know?

0:42:410:42:43

-I feel like doing it all again.

-But first you can buy me lunch.

0:42:430:42:45

SHE LAUGHS

0:42:450:42:47

So a convincing win from Kate.

0:42:470:42:50

Between them, they've made almost £3,400 -

0:42:500:42:53

and every penny of that will go to charity.

0:42:530:42:56

My chosen charity is Herefordshire Mind,

0:42:560:42:59

which helps people suffering from mental health illness

0:42:590:43:02

and supports their families.

0:43:020:43:04

The profits that I've made are going to Ben Cohen's StandUp Foundation,

0:43:040:43:09

which tackles bullying in all its forms.

0:43:090:43:12

It's been a week of no-holds-barred combat.

0:43:120:43:15

Our excellent experts have really put their money

0:43:150:43:17

where their mouths are and shown they can make a profit

0:43:170:43:20

from buying and selling antiques when their own money is on the line.

0:43:200:43:24

Phil Serrell and Kate Bliss race towards the finish line at the showdown auction in Southampton. Having spent £1000 across four different locations, who will come out on top? Phil becomes a proper Del Boy trying to sell to actor John Challis and Kate makes a sneaky sale to Phil's wife!
