This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,

0:00:020:00:03

the show that pitches TV's best-loved antiques experts

0:00:030:00:06

against each other in an all-out battle for profit.

0:00:060:00:10

Let's make hay while that sun shines.

0:00:100:00:12

Each week, one pair of duelling dealers

0:00:120:00:14

will face a different daily challenge.

0:00:140:00:17

I've got a heavy profit here.

0:00:170:00:18

Putting their reputations on the line...

0:00:180:00:21

Who's there?

0:00:210:00:22

..they'll give you the insiders' view of the trade.

0:00:230:00:26

Along with their top tips and savvy secrets.

0:00:270:00:30

That could present a problem for me.

0:00:300:00:32

Showing you how to make the most money...

0:00:320:00:34

Ready for battle.

0:00:340:00:35

..from buying and selling.

0:00:370:00:39

Get in there.

0:00:390:00:40

Coming up, Mark discovers the fashionable side of pottery.

0:00:420:00:45

Although blue and white is a little out of fashion,

0:00:450:00:47

little unusual shapes like this, you can normally find a buyer for.

0:00:470:00:51

Christina is overwhelmed.

0:00:510:00:54

Everybody is getting into the back of everyone's vans,

0:00:540:00:56

and I'm feeling like I should be in the back of a van.

0:00:560:00:58

And there's a lot of mincing going on.

0:00:580:01:01

Oh, it's slimy and cold and horrid!

0:01:010:01:04

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:01:040:01:07

Welcome, antiques lovers and thrill seekers everywhere, to this twisting

0:01:220:01:26

tale of buying and selling,

0:01:260:01:28

as a pair of inglorious bargain seekers are unleashed and go head-to-head

0:01:280:01:33

in search of prize-winning profits.

0:01:330:01:36

First up, they call him Mr Pink, because he's always in the pink.

0:01:360:01:39

He's rarely blue and never in the red.

0:01:390:01:42

Just watch this space.

0:01:450:01:47

It's going to be a hoot.

0:01:470:01:48

And he's up against a one-woman army of knowledge,

0:01:480:01:52

highly trained in the art of hand-to-hand negotiation,

0:01:520:01:55

and always prepared to do her duty to get a profit.

0:01:550:01:58

You cheeky monkey!

0:01:580:02:00

I'm feeling super competitive today, so let's go shopping.

0:02:020:02:06

Today, they are at Ford Airfield car-boot sale in Sussex,

0:02:060:02:09

with £250 of their own money to buy,

0:02:090:02:12

sell and make a profit for their chosen charities.

0:02:120:02:15

So, Mark Stacey and Christina Trevanion -

0:02:150:02:19

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

0:02:190:02:22

Oh, Christina.

0:02:220:02:23

-Good morning!

-Oh, is it?

0:02:230:02:25

Can you see me through those peepers?

0:02:250:02:27

No, not quite. It's so early, isn't it?

0:02:270:02:30

It's really early. It's almost dark.

0:02:300:02:32

There is an ill wind as well, you know. I hate being cold.

0:02:320:02:34

Well, you've got to do some moving around.

0:02:340:02:37

Yes. Maybe later, once I've spent some money.

0:02:370:02:39

How much have we got?

0:02:390:02:41

250 whole Great British pounds to spend at a car-boot sale.

0:02:410:02:44

If I spend even a fraction of that, it will be going some.

0:02:440:02:48

I want to spend it all, Christina.

0:02:480:02:49

-Oh, really?

-Come on! Enthusiasm.

0:02:490:02:51

-This is not just a car-boot sale. This is Ford Market.

-I've not been here before.

0:02:510:02:55

-This is quite a good car-boot sale.

-Is this going to be a treat for me?

-This will be a treat.

0:02:550:02:58

-Splendid.

-You know, you might find some bling.

0:02:580:03:00

-Really?

-Shall we go and find out?

0:03:000:03:02

Yeah, let's!

0:03:020:03:04

Oh, that got her excited.

0:03:040:03:05

So, in spite of his dislike of early starts...

0:03:050:03:08

-Morning.

-..Mark has the advantage,

0:03:090:03:11

having visited this boot sale before,

0:03:110:03:14

while Christina is the new girl on the block.

0:03:140:03:16

It's no wonder he is full of beans.

0:03:160:03:19

Gosh, it's so exciting.

0:03:190:03:21

You never know what is going to come out of a van, do you?

0:03:210:03:24

Whereas Christina is already looking bewildered by the pace of the day.

0:03:240:03:28

My goodness.

0:03:280:03:29

I don't think I've ever seen anything like this.

0:03:290:03:32

People are just arriving and there are hundreds of people here,

0:03:320:03:36

and everyone is getting into the back of everyone's vans,

0:03:360:03:39

and I'm feeling like I should be in the back of a van.

0:03:390:03:42

-How much have you got on that?

-Sold, ma'am.

-OK, thank you.

0:03:420:03:45

Oh, dear. It seems this breakneck start to the day

0:03:450:03:49

is putting Christina off her game.

0:03:490:03:51

Mark, however, old pro that he is, is playing it oh, so cool.

0:03:520:03:56

Right, I'm in the middle of the car-boot sale.

0:03:570:04:00

The vans have been unloaded.

0:04:000:04:02

The problem is that everybody is ducking and diving and grabbing

0:04:020:04:05

everything that's coming out, but I'm not going to do that.

0:04:050:04:08

I'm just going to wait and see what they bring out, and hopefully find the treasure.

0:04:080:04:12

Hold on, he's going backwards!

0:04:120:04:14

Still, as he walks, that way and this way, his calm approach is working,

0:04:140:04:19

as something catches his eye.

0:04:190:04:21

I quite like this. This is what they call a pouffe.

0:04:220:04:25

They were very fashionable, I think, in the '70s, weren't they?

0:04:250:04:29

Leather circular seats that you could flop on.

0:04:290:04:32

This is actually quite a nice one.

0:04:320:04:34

It's leather.

0:04:340:04:35

I'm not sure how old it is,

0:04:350:04:37

but I quite like this sort of almost Aztec design in the leather,

0:04:370:04:41

and it's got a sort of vintage look about it.

0:04:410:04:44

How much is this, darling?

0:04:440:04:45

-85.

-Pounds?

0:04:450:04:47

Yes.

0:04:470:04:48

That is one of the most expensive pouffes I've ever seen.

0:04:500:04:53

-Done one like this before?

-Don't be nasty.

0:04:530:04:56

-OK.

-You are very good-looking,

0:04:560:04:58

so I'm going to have trouble with this lady.

0:04:580:05:00

Yes, she knows you too well.

0:05:000:05:02

Maybe she can reel you in with something else.

0:05:020:05:05

-Do you like handbags?

-Sorry?

0:05:050:05:07

-Do you like handbags?

-Only at the weekend.

0:05:070:05:09

-What's this funny little thing?

-It's an Avon perfume brooch.

0:05:090:05:12

An Avon perfume?

0:05:120:05:14

Yes, it's got a little bit of perfume in the back of it.

0:05:140:05:16

Oh, gosh.

0:05:160:05:17

So, what, do you open it up?

0:05:170:05:19

Open it up, yeah, on the back.

0:05:190:05:21

Good Lord. That's very '70s, isn't it?

0:05:210:05:23

Lovely, isn't it? Yeah, it's lovely.

0:05:230:05:25

-That's cheap, is it?

-Tenner.

0:05:250:05:26

I'll tell you what. How about 65 for the two?

0:05:270:05:31

-Make it 70.

-I've got to make a profit.

-You will.

0:05:310:05:34

Yes, he's thinking about it.

0:05:360:05:38

Oh, he's gone for the hand.

0:05:390:05:41

Mark kicks off the buying with two retro purchases under his belt.

0:05:430:05:46

So, is he buying with his head, or will his heart sink

0:05:460:05:49

when he has to sell this brooch and pouffe?

0:05:490:05:52

Or "pouff-ay", as he likes to call it.

0:05:520:05:54

I've bought this rather nice embossed leather pouffe.

0:05:540:05:59

And this Avon perfume.

0:05:590:06:01

I mean, it's actually very cheaply made.

0:06:010:06:03

It's only gilt metal, with a little aquamarine glass eye.

0:06:030:06:06

You would open this up and inside would be a little block of perfume

0:06:060:06:09

you can use. And when you're not using it as a perfume,

0:06:090:06:12

then you actually just clip it on as a little brooch.

0:06:120:06:15

With Mark swimming into a 2-0 lead,

0:06:160:06:19

Christina is paddling hard to catch up, having found a timepiece -

0:06:190:06:23

well, a piece of a timepiece.

0:06:230:06:24

-What's on that, darling?

-That's come out of an 18-carat pocket watch.

0:06:250:06:28

-A fiver.

-It's quite sweet, isn't it?

0:06:280:06:31

Can I give you a pound for it?

0:06:310:06:34

Go on, then.

0:06:340:06:35

A whole Great British pound.

0:06:350:06:37

Thank you very much.

0:06:370:06:38

Well, that cheeky pound gives Christina a cheeky 80% discount.

0:06:400:06:44

Incredible.

0:06:440:06:45

It would have been part of an 18-carat gold pocket watch originally.

0:06:450:06:48

It's the pocket watch face, and movement,

0:06:480:06:51

and very nicely engraved on the back.

0:06:510:06:53

JH Bexfield, 65 High Street, Chatham.

0:06:530:06:56

So I'm going to try and find somebody who needs a potential movement and face.

0:06:560:06:59

Some brilliant quality, for a pound!

0:06:590:07:02

One pound - not exactly the last of the big spenders, eh?

0:07:020:07:06

All that money must be weighing her down,

0:07:060:07:08

as she hasn't gone far before she spots

0:07:080:07:11

a piece of agricultural equipment.

0:07:110:07:13

These are quite fun. Are these yours?

0:07:150:07:16

-They are indeed.

-Are they potato weighing scales?

0:07:160:07:19

-Yes.

-So you'd put your sack on there,

0:07:190:07:22

and then you'd put your weights on there.

0:07:220:07:25

-They're quite fun, aren't they?

-Yes, they're very good.

0:07:250:07:27

What have you got them marked at? Oh, you've got £38 on them there.

0:07:270:07:30

What would your best offer be on that?

0:07:300:07:33

I've already lowered them to 35, would be the lowest I can go.

0:07:330:07:37

£30 and you've got a deal.

0:07:370:07:39

OK.

0:07:390:07:40

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-You're an angel. Thank you very much.

0:07:400:07:43

Christina agrees the price for the scales,

0:07:440:07:46

but what use are scales without weights?

0:07:460:07:49

So, when the dealer reveals he has a set, she's interested.

0:07:490:07:53

But there's a catch.

0:07:530:07:55

-Would you throw those in with the price?

-No.

-Oh, go on.

0:07:550:07:58

-I can't.

-Do they... See how much I weigh. Put them on there.

0:07:580:08:01

How much is that one?

0:08:010:08:03

I'll do them at a fiver each.

0:08:030:08:04

I think, to be honest, I think

0:08:040:08:06

-I'm just quite fond of the scales.

-The scales, OK.

0:08:060:08:08

Unless those come for free.

0:08:080:08:10

£15 for the weights.

0:08:100:08:12

-Five.

-No.

0:08:120:08:13

-Ten.

-Eight.

0:08:130:08:15

Go on, then. £8.

0:08:150:08:17

-Thank you very much.

-OK.

0:08:170:08:19

I'm going to need some change now, adding insult to injury.

0:08:190:08:21

-Thank you very much.

-Keep the change?

0:08:210:08:23

No!

0:08:230:08:25

-You cheeky monkey!

-Hold on.

0:08:250:08:28

Yes, it seems today Christina

0:08:280:08:29

is out to get the best bargains at the boot,

0:08:290:08:32

and the scales and the weights tip the balance in her favour,

0:08:320:08:35

costing her £38 in total.

0:08:350:08:38

So, I've just bought these potato weighing scales.

0:08:380:08:40

I think they're quite fun.

0:08:400:08:42

Probably French. Obviously there is green paint on there.

0:08:420:08:44

Might be a little bit of woodworm,

0:08:440:08:46

but nothing that can't be treatable.

0:08:460:08:48

But what I'm thinking is I could sell them potentially to

0:08:480:08:51

a farm shop or some sort of country store, something like that.

0:08:510:08:54

I think they are really quite good fun.

0:08:540:08:56

Christina's weighty purchase means she has the advantage,

0:08:560:08:59

but Mark has found a little piggy he's thinking about

0:08:590:09:02

taking all the way home.

0:09:020:09:04

That's quite fun, isn't it?

0:09:040:09:06

It's a little piggy with a sort of onyx, polished onyx body.

0:09:060:09:11

Looks like it might be silver, actually.

0:09:110:09:13

Now, how much is that?

0:09:130:09:14

I can do that for £20.

0:09:140:09:16

It's quite a lot for a little pig, isn't it?

0:09:160:09:19

You can do it better than that, can't you?

0:09:190:09:22

I can do it for £15.

0:09:220:09:23

Well, we're heading in the right direction,

0:09:230:09:25

because I don't want to end up with a pig in a poke.

0:09:250:09:27

Can't you do it for a tenner? It's only a little thing.

0:09:270:09:30

You don't want to take him home. He might get broken.

0:09:300:09:32

-You can have it for a tenner.

-Shall we shake hands at

-10? Yes.

0:09:320:09:36

So Mark gets 50% off the asking price,

0:09:360:09:39

but will the pig help bring home the bacon?

0:09:390:09:43

I really like this little thing.

0:09:430:09:44

It's not terribly old.

0:09:440:09:46

It's a little ornament, really,

0:09:460:09:48

and you've got either silver or silver plate head

0:09:480:09:51

and the little curly tail at the back, and his little feet.

0:09:510:09:54

And then the body is actually polished onyx.

0:09:540:09:58

And it's got quite a nice little grain to it.

0:09:580:10:00

But I think just somebody who collects pigs -

0:10:000:10:02

pigs are very collectable -

0:10:020:10:04

so, I must be able to make a few pounds on that.

0:10:040:10:06

So I think that's a good buy.

0:10:060:10:08

Yes, that old hand Stacey is hoping to trot off with a profit.

0:10:080:10:11

Well, he is a heavyweight opponent.

0:10:110:10:14

Well, there's only one question.

0:10:140:10:16

Who's going to be the champion of this car-boot sale?

0:10:160:10:19

So, with a typically eclectic collection of collectables filling

0:10:190:10:22

our experts' pockets,

0:10:220:10:23

let's see how much of a dent all this has made in their wallets.

0:10:230:10:28

From a £250 budget, Mark has three items so far,

0:10:280:10:33

costing £80 and leaving him with £170 still to spend.

0:10:330:10:38

Christina has picked up three for just £39,

0:10:380:10:41

meaning she has £211 in her kitty.

0:10:410:10:45

-Hi, sunshine.

-Hi, how are you doing?

-All right. At least it's light now.

0:10:460:10:49

It is. It's good fun, isn't it?

0:10:490:10:51

Seriously, I felt this morning when it was slightly dark, and everybody

0:10:510:10:54

was just around, sort of rummaging

0:10:540:10:55

through everything, I was like, "Oh, it's quite exciting, isn't it?"

0:10:550:10:58

-You've bought, haven't you?

-A few things, yes.

0:10:580:11:01

-How about you?

-Well, I have, but the problem I have is

0:11:010:11:03

I see a van coming in, and it's, like, everybody heads to it -

0:11:030:11:06

-it's like a swarm of locusts all over it.

-Yeah.

0:11:060:11:09

And the difficulty is I rush over there

0:11:090:11:11

when they're rushing over there, and I'm thinking, "Hang on,

0:11:110:11:14

-"I'm losing it here."

-Finding yourself in the wrong place?

0:11:140:11:16

-But I have bought something.

-I like that you're not a sheep.

0:11:160:11:19

You're going in the other direction to the crowd.

0:11:190:11:21

I've spent all my life going in the other direction.

0:11:210:11:23

-Why doesn't that surprise me?

-It's all right at the moment.

0:11:230:11:26

We've got more things to buy.

0:11:260:11:27

-Yes.

-So which direction are you going?

0:11:270:11:29

-This way.

-OK. See you later.

0:11:290:11:31

Yes, Mark is no sheep,

0:11:320:11:33

and much more of a salmon swimming against the current.

0:11:330:11:37

Maybe not. But in this eclectic car-boot,

0:11:380:11:40

it's easy to find something unique and different,

0:11:400:11:43

and it seems Christina has found

0:11:430:11:45

a Dutch vendor with some very interesting items.

0:11:450:11:47

Hello there, sir.

0:11:470:11:49

So, you brought all these things over for you from France?

0:11:490:11:51

I quite like those.

0:11:510:11:52

-These are from Holland.

-Did they come from a shop?

0:11:520:11:55

Yes, from a shop. They're perfume dispensers.

0:11:550:11:58

Oh, perfume dispensers.

0:11:580:12:00

-Yes.

-Hmm.

0:12:000:12:01

Eau de Cologne. So what is Boldoot?

0:12:030:12:05

You don't speak German?

0:12:050:12:07

No. I speak a little bit of Dutch.

0:12:070:12:09

-Dutch, OK.

-Yeah. And I know "kwallen."

0:12:090:12:13

-Yeah.

-It's jellyfish, isn't it?

0:12:130:12:15

-Yeah, yeah.

-That is pretty much the only word I know in Dutch.

0:12:150:12:19

And how much have you got on those?

0:12:190:12:21

The two, 35.

0:12:210:12:23

-For you.

-For the both?

0:12:230:12:24

-Yes, for both.

-Euros?

0:12:240:12:26

Er, pounds.

0:12:260:12:27

-Are you sure?

-Yes.

0:12:290:12:30

What about 30 for the two, and I'm a happy girl?

0:12:310:12:34

-OK.

-Yeah? Brilliant.

0:12:340:12:36

Thank you very much.

0:12:360:12:38

I've just bought these perfume dispensers.

0:12:390:12:41

It's a serious amount of perfume that you can fit in there,

0:12:410:12:44

aren't they? So, they're old shop fittings, I think.

0:12:440:12:46

And, look here - we've got this wonderful JAM, number 182, and 1970.

0:12:460:12:51

So a good date on there as well.

0:12:510:12:53

I'm hoping I might be able to sell them

0:12:530:12:55

to some sort of perfume retailer,

0:12:550:12:57

but, if not, wouldn't they make the most amazing pair of lamps?

0:12:570:13:00

I'm thrilled with them.

0:13:000:13:02

So thrilled, in fact, that while Mark is still rummaging,

0:13:020:13:05

Christina goes straight back to the same stall.

0:13:050:13:08

This time, she has her eye on some wooden moulds.

0:13:080:13:12

Those are lovely, aren't they? What have you got there?

0:13:120:13:14

You've got a sheep, a duck...

0:13:140:13:16

How much have you got on those?

0:13:160:13:18

-20, altogether.

-For all of them?

-Yes.

0:13:180:13:20

I don't know what I'd do with them, though. What would I do with them?

0:13:200:13:23

Sell them!

0:13:230:13:25

Yeah, very good point.

0:13:250:13:27

Would you like to swap places?

0:13:270:13:29

THEY LAUGH

0:13:290:13:31

What about - bearing in mind

0:13:310:13:33

I've just bought the perfume bottles as well -

0:13:330:13:35

would you take £10 for the lot?

0:13:350:13:38

OK. OK.

0:13:380:13:39

Thank you very much. £10.

0:13:390:13:42

Judging by this little windmill down here,

0:13:420:13:44

I'd say that they probably are Dutch. I think they're sugar moulds,

0:13:440:13:47

chocolate moulds, gingerbread moulds.

0:13:470:13:48

And the thing that I really,

0:13:480:13:50

really love about them is that you can see they've been used.

0:13:500:13:52

Look, you've got this wonderful charring down here where those have

0:13:520:13:55

obviously been in the oven.

0:13:550:13:57

I think there is another example here, look - look at that.

0:13:570:13:59

They've been used, they've been loved,

0:13:590:14:01

and I'd love to sell them to somebody

0:14:010:14:03

who is going to use them again.

0:14:030:14:05

But, if they don't get used,

0:14:050:14:06

I think they are really quite decorative at the same time.

0:14:060:14:09

So, £10 for all this!

0:14:090:14:11

That's why you've got to love a car-boot sale.

0:14:110:14:13

Meanwhile, Mark is lagging behind,

0:14:130:14:15

with three items to Christina's five.

0:14:150:14:18

-Hello.

-Hello, how are you?

0:14:180:14:20

And there may be a reason.

0:14:200:14:21

He's got his dealer's head on,

0:14:210:14:23

and has got sidetracked looking for things he thinks

0:14:230:14:26

some of his contacts could be in the market for.

0:14:260:14:28

I've got a friend who collects Wedgwood,

0:14:300:14:32

has a very good collection of Wedgwood.

0:14:320:14:34

So I'm looking for a piece of Wedgwood pottery,

0:14:340:14:37

but it has to be a really good piece.

0:14:370:14:39

But I can't seem to find anything of that vein at the moment.

0:14:390:14:43

But plenty of time.

0:14:430:14:46

Coming to an eclectic car-boot and looking for specific items can be

0:14:460:14:50

distracting, especially if what you want to find, you can't.

0:14:500:14:55

Are you buying here today?

0:14:550:14:56

I am trying to buy here today.

0:14:560:14:58

But I'm looking for a couple of things, and I can't find them.

0:14:580:15:01

-Oh, right.

-My brain is confused, and it's very easily done with me.

0:15:010:15:05

I get very easily confused.

0:15:050:15:06

I am looking for... You haven't got any early Wedgwood, have you?

0:15:070:15:11

Christina, however, has no problem picking up her sixth item,

0:15:110:15:15

a ceiling lamp for £100.

0:15:150:15:17

I found this lamp, which I absolutely love -

0:15:170:15:20

it is my favourite purchase of the day.

0:15:200:15:22

It's from an old railway station,

0:15:220:15:23

and it's obviously made of copper here.

0:15:230:15:25

Love the fact that it was originally a gas lamp,

0:15:250:15:28

and still has all its guts and its innards for it to be a gas lamp.

0:15:280:15:31

And it has got the on-off there.

0:15:310:15:33

I just completely fell in love with it.

0:15:330:15:35

I had to pay £100 for it.

0:15:350:15:37

Personally, I would hang this in my own home.

0:15:370:15:39

I just think it's gorgeous, and I can't wait to find somebody

0:15:390:15:42

who is going to love it as much as I do.

0:15:420:15:44

And with that buy in the bag,

0:15:440:15:46

Christina decides to call it a day at the car-boot.

0:15:460:15:50

So, that's it. I'm done! And I spent quite a lot of money.

0:15:500:15:53

Normally, I'm really quite stingy at a car-boot sale,

0:15:530:15:55

but I've spent quite a lot of my money, really,

0:15:550:15:57

so I'm quite pleased with that. Done, finished.

0:15:570:16:00

Time for a bacon butty, and Mark Stacey is still out there shopping.

0:16:000:16:03

Yes, Mark is still at large with his lengthy list of desirables.

0:16:050:16:09

But, as the day draws on, has he left it too late?

0:16:090:16:13

Come on.

0:16:130:16:15

Happily, he happens upon some pottery.

0:16:150:16:17

However, it's not the Wedgwood that is calling out to him.

0:16:170:16:20

I like that little box.

0:16:200:16:22

-Right.

-Can I have a look at that?

0:16:220:16:24

-Yeah, it's Spode and Copeland.

-That's right.

0:16:240:16:27

This is rather sweet, actually. You can see straight away from this,

0:16:270:16:31

it's transfer printed blue and white.

0:16:310:16:32

This is quite a well-known pattern by one of England's oldest

0:16:320:16:36

pottery manufacturers, Spode.

0:16:360:16:38

And it's called the tower pattern.

0:16:380:16:40

What is quite nice about it is this is a little heart-shaped box,

0:16:400:16:44

and you don't see things like this very often.

0:16:440:16:47

This is actually the beginning of the 20th century,

0:16:470:16:51

and although blue and white is a little out of fashion,

0:16:510:16:54

little unusual shapes like this, you can normally find a buyer for.

0:16:540:16:57

How much is that, dear?

0:16:570:16:59

£10. £10.

0:16:590:17:01

And that's the best price, is it?

0:17:010:17:02

We can take £2 off with no problems.

0:17:020:17:04

-So, there you go.

-Oh, wonderful. So we'll have it for £8?

0:17:040:17:07

-You can, yes.

-That's wonderful.

0:17:070:17:08

Thank you very much indeed.

0:17:080:17:09

-You're welcome.

-I really like that, actually.

0:17:090:17:12

And everybody loves a big heart, don't they?

0:17:120:17:15

Yes, no time for romance now, Mark,

0:17:160:17:18

as having spent so much time sounding relaxed...

0:17:180:17:22

-Plenty of time.

-..messing about...

0:17:220:17:24

Don't want to end up with a pig in a poke.

0:17:240:17:26

..and walking backwards...

0:17:260:17:27

I'm in the middle of the car-boot sale.

0:17:270:17:30

..he's running out of time.

0:17:310:17:33

Gosh, I've got to be really quick,

0:17:330:17:34

because people are packing up everywhere now.

0:17:340:17:36

Actually, half the fair has disappeared

0:17:360:17:40

while I'm aimlessly walking around,

0:17:400:17:42

so I think I really have to try and find this last item.

0:17:420:17:47

Mark won't want to leave the car-boot without

0:17:470:17:50

sufficient ammunition to win this battle.

0:17:500:17:53

A-ha! He spots something.

0:17:530:17:54

Oh, actually, that's quite fun.

0:17:540:17:56

But will it spell out success?

0:17:560:17:58

This is a late 19th-century sampler.

0:17:580:18:01

It's a sort of needlework picture, and it was an educational tool.

0:18:010:18:04

Children, particularly girls, were encouraged to learn

0:18:040:18:08

the alphabet and numbers by embroidering.

0:18:080:18:10

So, here we've got a very simple one.

0:18:100:18:13

But it has got a name -

0:18:130:18:14

it's Amy Ethel Bill, Church School, Bideford,

0:18:140:18:18

1892.

0:18:180:18:19

And in quite a nice sort of churchy type frame.

0:18:190:18:22

A sort of slightly Gothic frame.

0:18:220:18:24

It would be quite nice to do some research to see if...

0:18:240:18:27

what the church school was in Bideford, and whether, actually,

0:18:270:18:30

there is a Bideford historical society

0:18:300:18:33

that may be interested in buying pieces back for the local area.

0:18:330:18:37

I tried to get it for 25, after the original quote of 40.

0:18:370:18:42

And she would not go not go a penny below £30.

0:18:420:18:45

I don't think I'm going to make a huge amount of money from it,

0:18:450:18:48

but I'm certainly going to have a lot of fun researching this,

0:18:480:18:51

and it's going to lead me into an interesting story, I think.

0:18:510:18:55

But the best thing about this is I'm now shopped out.

0:18:550:18:59

Shopped up? Whatever it is.

0:18:590:19:00

Christina, put the kettle on!

0:19:000:19:02

Yes, shopped up or shopped out - either way,

0:19:040:19:06

both our Sussex spenders can slope off for a sit-down

0:19:060:19:09

as we tot up what they spent at today's car-boot.

0:19:090:19:12

From a £250 budget,

0:19:140:19:16

Mark bought five items and spent just under half his cash,

0:19:160:19:20

forking out £118.

0:19:200:19:23

Christina bought more and spent more -

0:19:230:19:26

six items for £179.

0:19:260:19:28

But what did they make of their day?

0:19:280:19:31

How did you find that, Christina?

0:19:320:19:34

-Loved it.

-I can see you loved it.

0:19:340:19:36

Loved it! Oh, it was brilliant.

0:19:360:19:38

-Really?

-Yeah! The only thing I sort of think, oh, why did you buy that?

0:19:380:19:42

-Can you guess?

-The clock.

0:19:420:19:43

Yeah. What do you think I paid for it?

0:19:430:19:46

Fiver? £1.

0:19:460:19:47

-Oh, Christina!

-Well, I thought, as spares and repairs, but...

0:19:470:19:50

I'll tell you what I do love, is I love - tell me about this,

0:19:500:19:52

this copper light.

0:19:520:19:54

I saw this and I swooned.

0:19:540:19:56

I did actually swoon.

0:19:560:19:57

I love it. And copper - I don't know whether you know, darling,

0:19:570:20:00

but copper is so in this season.

0:20:000:20:01

-Is it?

-Yeah.

-So in this season.

0:20:010:20:04

Did you get that? You heard it here first.

0:20:040:20:06

-I think it's great.

-And, do you know, I love this.

0:20:080:20:11

-It's great fun, isn't it?

-This is fab.

0:20:110:20:12

The thing about me with samplers is they're just...

0:20:120:20:15

I mean, you could not get more hand-wrought, could you?

0:20:150:20:17

No, you can't. I look at your hoard, and, you know,

0:20:170:20:20

size is important to you.

0:20:200:20:21

Seriously, I've gone big. I have gone big, yeah.

0:20:210:20:24

If you look at my little selection...

0:20:240:20:26

Yeah, what's going on?

0:20:260:20:28

-And what on earth is that?

-It's a solid perfume brooch.

0:20:280:20:31

-So, almost like a...

-Like a little block.

0:20:310:20:33

-Oh, OK.

-But you can actually use it as a brooch as well.

0:20:330:20:36

-It's fab. I love that.

-And it was again 10 quid.

0:20:360:20:38

I love that it's got a dual purpose. I like that.

0:20:380:20:40

What we both know, Mark Stacey, is that size doesn't always matter.

0:20:400:20:43

No, it doesn't, but I'm hoping for the sweet smell of success.

0:20:430:20:47

Oh, I see what you did there.

0:20:470:20:48

Now our pair head home and have time to research their items.

0:20:520:20:56

Over at his Brightlingsea base,

0:20:570:20:59

Mark has dug up some info on his Victorian sampler.

0:20:590:21:03

These are historical documents and unique to that person.

0:21:030:21:07

Sadly, I found out that this young lady died in 1904, aged 22.

0:21:070:21:13

So my initial plan of finding family members may not prove successful.

0:21:130:21:17

But who knows? I shall keep searching.

0:21:170:21:20

The other items - the pouffe, it is an attractive thing,

0:21:200:21:24

and these sort of retro things are back in fashion.

0:21:240:21:27

Actually, the thing that I'm going to have most fun with, I think,

0:21:270:21:30

is that little piggy, and I'm sure he's off to market.

0:21:300:21:35

Mark also needs to find a buyer for his brooch and the heart-shaped box.

0:21:350:21:40

While, over in Shropshire,

0:21:400:21:41

Christina is focusing her research on the best places to sell.

0:21:410:21:45

This is from a railway station, originally. It's gas,

0:21:450:21:49

and I'm hoping that whoever I find to buy it will keep it as it is,

0:21:490:21:52

because it's so important - look at this wonderful mechanism here

0:21:520:21:56

that you can use for turning on and off the gas.

0:21:560:21:58

My scales I paid £38 for, including the weights.

0:21:580:22:01

Hoping to find a farm shop that I can maybe sell those to,

0:22:010:22:04

that would be quite useful.

0:22:040:22:05

These perfume bottles, or perfume dispensers -

0:22:050:22:08

I'm hoping to find a person who creates

0:22:080:22:11

wonderful smelly smells and perfumes that might find these useful.

0:22:110:22:16

And then I bought this.

0:22:160:22:18

A little pocket watch movement.

0:22:180:22:20

Why did I buy it? Oh, yes, because it was £1.

0:22:200:22:24

I'm sure I can find somebody that will give me a profit on that,

0:22:240:22:27

even just for spares and repairs.

0:22:270:22:28

But, overall, I am thrilled with what I got,

0:22:280:22:32

and I can't wait to get selling it now.

0:22:320:22:35

Yes, there is no time to waste.

0:22:350:22:37

Our battlers must do the research and put in the hours

0:22:370:22:40

to find the buyers that'll put them on top.

0:22:400:22:43

Remember, no deal is sealed

0:22:430:22:45

until the hand is shaken and the money is taken.

0:22:450:22:48

It's Mark who is first to get a whiff of a sale

0:22:480:22:51

that might well hog the limelight.

0:22:510:22:53

Well, I've come to a pig farm, surprisingly enough,

0:22:530:22:56

to sell my little piggy.

0:22:560:22:58

I'm here to meet Tracey, and I can't think of a more appropriate place.

0:22:580:23:02

-Morning, Tracey.

-Morning, Mark.

0:23:100:23:11

-How are you?

-I'm good, I'm good.

0:23:110:23:13

Lovely to be here. I mean, tell me about this.

0:23:130:23:15

You've got a big operation here.

0:23:150:23:17

Well, yes. It's gradually got bigger over the years,

0:23:170:23:19

but it wasn't always this big.

0:23:190:23:21

You know, I only started out with 30 pigs at the beginning,

0:23:210:23:24

and now I've got more like 700.

0:23:240:23:26

My goodness.

0:23:260:23:28

700 pigs! That'll take some looking after.

0:23:280:23:29

They do, yes.

0:23:290:23:31

Well, the reason I'm here, of course -

0:23:330:23:35

not just to look at your wonderful pigs and learn about your business.

0:23:350:23:38

But I bought something which I thought

0:23:380:23:40

-was so appropriate for a pig farmer.

-That is lovely.

0:23:400:23:43

-It's so sweet.

-And, actually, looking at some of the pigs now,

0:23:430:23:46

it really does look like one.

0:23:460:23:48

And it looks like it's actually giggling.

0:23:480:23:50

It does, doesn't it? I mean, it's...

0:23:500:23:52

The centre bit is, like, a polished green onyx,

0:23:520:23:55

but the head and the tail are 925 silver.

0:23:550:23:59

I think I'd be interested in buying it.

0:23:590:24:01

-You would?

-Yes.

-And at what sort of price?

0:24:010:24:04

I know this is going to be too easy, too easy.

0:24:040:24:07

£60.

0:24:070:24:08

-£60?

-Yes.

0:24:080:24:09

Do you think we could do 65?

0:24:090:24:11

-Oh...

-Or am I pushing you too hard?

0:24:110:24:14

No, I think we could go to 65.

0:24:140:24:15

-Are you sure?

-Yeah.

-That would be lovely.

0:24:150:24:17

-You're welcome.

-I brought it to the right place.

-You have.

0:24:170:24:20

Yes, Mark makes a meaty profit of £55, but, before he leaves,

0:24:200:24:24

Tracey wants him to get hands-on.

0:24:240:24:27

Oh, my gosh, Tracey.

0:24:270:24:28

Now, this has got to be mixed together.

0:24:280:24:30

Oh, God. I suppose I ought to help.

0:24:300:24:33

Oh, it's slimy and cold and horrid!

0:24:330:24:36

It's not that bad! You're over exaggerating matters, I think.

0:24:360:24:39

Now we've got to get this content

0:24:390:24:40

-to this one, back into this machine.

-Back into this one.

0:24:400:24:43

-That looks a lot better, doesn't it?

-That does. It does, doesn't it?

0:24:430:24:46

So what we're going to have to do now is to get the right size and

0:24:460:24:50

the amount. It looks like I'm better than you at this.

0:24:500:24:53

Wow, Tracey, I don't think you're going to offer me a job, are you?

0:24:550:24:58

Well, everyone has to start somewhere.

0:24:580:25:00

Indeed. And Christina is starting in the pub.

0:25:000:25:04

But it's not what you think.

0:25:040:25:05

She's brought her beloved copper gas lamp

0:25:050:25:08

to Market Drayton in Shropshire.

0:25:080:25:10

I'm here to see Steve, who fixes up and refurbishes his pubs

0:25:100:25:14

with vintage and genuine antiques.

0:25:140:25:16

I bought this from the car-boot sale and I totally fell in love with it,

0:25:160:25:19

so I'm really hoping that he loves it as much as I do.

0:25:190:25:22

I did pay a lot for it. Here's hoping.

0:25:220:25:26

The lamp owes her £100,

0:25:260:25:28

so will proprietor Steve shine a light on a profit?

0:25:280:25:31

So, you basically have pubs, don't you,

0:25:310:25:34

that you refurbish and use the vintage fixtures and fittings in -

0:25:340:25:37

-is that right?

-Yes.

0:25:370:25:38

I mean, all the... As much as we can, we try to buy original things,

0:25:380:25:42

and we try to use reclaimed materials.

0:25:420:25:44

Always do, if we can.

0:25:440:25:46

-It's all about going to the local pub.

-And getting the experience.

0:25:460:25:49

Having a proper pint, pulling a beer.

0:25:490:25:51

I believe you used to work in a pub back in the day.

0:25:510:25:53

Oh, many moons ago.

0:25:530:25:55

Many, many, many moons ago.

0:25:550:25:56

I've brought you, obviously, this lamp,

0:25:580:26:00

which I bought because I absolutely loved it.

0:26:000:26:03

And, obviously, it's copper, and you've got an enamel top there.

0:26:030:26:06

Apparently, it came from Bridlington station. So, down south.

0:26:060:26:10

So, it was reclaimed from the station.

0:26:100:26:13

And it's a gas lamp rather than an electric one.

0:26:130:26:16

Is it the sort of thing you would use to have

0:26:160:26:18

-as a fixture or fitting in a pub?

-Yeah, no, it's a very lovely thing.

0:26:180:26:22

And, funnily enough, you brought a gas lamp, which is tricky to use.

0:26:220:26:26

-Yeah.

-Because there isn't much gas.

0:26:260:26:28

But we do have a pub with gas lighting, still.

0:26:280:26:30

-Really?

-We still use gas lighting.

0:26:300:26:32

-Really, really?

-Yeah.

0:26:320:26:34

Less than half an hour from here.

0:26:340:26:36

I mean, I think, really,

0:26:360:26:37

it would retail in the region of around £300 or £400.

0:26:370:26:40

What are your thoughts?

0:26:400:26:42

-Um...

-What would you be happy to pay for it?

0:26:420:26:44

I am not sure I can quite get that far.

0:26:440:26:46

-OK.

-Would a couple of hundred do it?

0:26:460:26:49

Would you meet me in the middle at 250?

0:26:510:26:54

Or is that pushing you too far?

0:26:540:26:56

I think we can probably get that.

0:26:560:26:58

And we would probably pay, for a repro version...

0:26:580:27:00

-Yeah.

-..we would probably be paying a couple of hundred.

0:27:000:27:03

-Yeah.

-So a little bit of a premium for something that is the real deal.

0:27:030:27:06

That's genuine, original grunge, as you said.

0:27:060:27:09

-Unpolished.

-Unpolished, original grunge.

0:27:090:27:12

Christina pulls in a profit of £150 for the lamp,

0:27:120:27:15

making for a good start to her selling.

0:27:150:27:18

It brings joy to my heart that it is still going to be kept as a gas lamp

0:27:180:27:21

in its original condition, and a great profit.

0:27:210:27:24

Onwards and upwards.

0:27:240:27:26

But it's Mark who's back into the fray next.

0:27:260:27:29

He's in Halston in Essex with his heart-shaped pottery.

0:27:290:27:33

Well, something for the romantics now -

0:27:330:27:35

this lovely little heart-shaped Copeland Spode box.

0:27:350:27:37

I found a dealer who specialises in jewellery,

0:27:370:27:40

but she thinks she may be able to use it somehow in her marketing.

0:27:400:27:45

I hope she's not a hard-nosed dealer and has a romantic, sensitive side.

0:27:450:27:50

The box cost Mark £8, so will antiques dealer Kim love it enough

0:27:500:27:54

for him to walk away with a profit?

0:27:540:27:57

You sell a lot of jewellery, don't you, that sort of thing?

0:27:570:27:59

Well, I love transfer printed work.

0:27:590:28:02

And Copeland Spode, of course, a very important factory.

0:28:020:28:04

You don't often see the heart shape, do you?

0:28:040:28:06

No. You can use it in lots of different ways, really.

0:28:060:28:09

I could tip the lid and put some jewellery sort of across it,

0:28:090:28:13

and coming out, spilling out of it

0:28:130:28:15

would look really pretty.

0:28:150:28:16

Sometimes you get little dates stamped in the bottom,

0:28:160:28:19

but that round mark tends to be sort of 1920s, '30s.

0:28:190:28:22

I think I said between 15 and 25.

0:28:220:28:25

-And...

-Oh, yeah, but that's very rare.

0:28:250:28:27

Because you often find on heart-shaped pieces,

0:28:270:28:30

-you get that little glaze chip. It's a sign of quality.

-Really?

0:28:300:28:34

I believe you(!)

0:28:350:28:37

Yes, Mark. There is no pulling the wool over Kim's eyes.

0:28:380:28:41

But I'm thinking, because it's got a chip...

0:28:410:28:44

Yes.

0:28:440:28:45

..and it's not very old, 10.

0:28:450:28:47

Oh!

0:28:470:28:48

Oh. Oh, dear.

0:28:500:28:52

Oh, dear, where's that darkened room that I need to go and lie down in?

0:28:520:28:55

Oh, I couldn't do 10.

0:28:550:28:58

I mean, it cost me £8.

0:28:580:29:00

I'll give you 15.

0:29:000:29:01

I think I should be nice to you,

0:29:010:29:03

because you've come up quite a lot. Let's say 14.

0:29:030:29:05

-And then we're both compromising.

-Really? That's good.

0:29:050:29:08

So, are we happy with 14?

0:29:080:29:09

-I am.

-And, you know, you haven't broken my heart.

0:29:090:29:12

Oh, that was terrible!

0:29:120:29:14

Mark dropping his price?

0:29:160:29:18

Very out of character!

0:29:180:29:19

Kim must have won his heart.

0:29:190:29:21

Still, he makes a £6 profit on the item,

0:29:210:29:24

earning him two sales to Christina's one.

0:29:240:29:26

But The Magpie is not resting on her laurels.

0:29:260:29:30

She's taken her wooden moulds to Tarporley in Cheshire.

0:29:300:29:34

To be perfectly honest,

0:29:340:29:35

I'm not entirely sure what these were used for.

0:29:350:29:37

But I'm sure they'll be able to shed some light on the subject,

0:29:370:29:40

and maybe even want to buy them. Who knows?

0:29:400:29:43

They set her back £10,

0:29:430:29:45

so will they help her cook up a profit

0:29:450:29:47

from chocolate shop owner Charles?

0:29:470:29:49

Charles, I thought they might be chocolate moulds,

0:29:500:29:52

but I suspect you might tell me that they are not.

0:29:520:29:55

They are emphatically not chocolate moulds.

0:29:550:29:57

-Really?

-The old chocolate moulds were beautiful metal moulds

0:29:570:30:00

with a very, very high shine on the inside,

0:30:000:30:03

and this was to make the chocolate release when it set.

0:30:030:30:07

These, I think, are bakery moulds.

0:30:070:30:09

Almost certainly, these would have had a biscuit mix

0:30:090:30:13

or something like that.

0:30:130:30:14

So, not desirable for chocolate making?

0:30:140:30:17

Not for chocolate making,

0:30:170:30:18

but within the chocolate, confectionery and baking industry,

0:30:180:30:22

they are wonderful.

0:30:220:30:24

-Oh! Phew!

-I like them. I like them.

0:30:240:30:27

I mean, there are ten moulds here.

0:30:270:30:29

-Yes.

-What about 80...

0:30:290:30:33

80... £80?

0:30:330:30:36

£80.

0:30:360:30:38

Christina...

0:30:380:30:39

You're clearly not seeing how we make our chocolates.

0:30:410:30:44

We spend hours making our truffles,

0:30:440:30:46

and we have to make an awful lot of truffles for £80.

0:30:460:30:50

I will give you a proposition.

0:30:500:30:52

-Oh!

-I will pay you £60 cash if you will come and dip some truffles,

0:30:520:30:59

so that you can appreciate how long it takes us.

0:30:590:31:02

-£60.

-Yes.

0:31:020:31:03

Truffle-making. Do I get to taste one?

0:31:030:31:06

You get to keep what you dip.

0:31:060:31:08

-Is that all right?

-Done! Done!

0:31:080:31:11

My goodness, she nearly ripped his arm off.

0:31:110:31:13

And it's probably not because she got a £50 profit on the moulds.

0:31:130:31:17

Please tell me that is a vat of chocolate.

0:31:190:31:21

That is milk chocolate.

0:31:210:31:23

Oh, that looks amazing. Can I just put my head in it?

0:31:230:31:26

No.

0:31:260:31:28

I get a choccy and I delicately throw it in?

0:31:280:31:32

Yes. Move it around with the forks until it's covered in chocolate.

0:31:320:31:36

-OK.

-And then take it out.

0:31:360:31:37

-How's that?

-That is very good.

0:31:370:31:39

-That's very good, yes.

-Really?

0:31:390:31:41

Like the egg and spoon race.

0:31:410:31:43

Oh. Oh, my goodness.

0:31:430:31:45

That's brilliant.

0:31:450:31:48

-Ta-da!

-You're a natural.

0:31:480:31:50

And, powered by a sugar high,

0:31:520:31:54

she takes her potato scales and weights

0:31:540:31:57

to Northwick-based fruit and veg seller Ian...

0:31:570:32:00

Ian! I can never say no to a man in a cravat.

0:32:000:32:04

..who pays £60 for the set, adding a fruity £22 profit to her pot,

0:32:040:32:10

and brings us to the halfway point in this selling bonanza.

0:32:100:32:13

So, let's see who is the heavyweight at the moment

0:32:130:32:16

and who still needs to bulk up.

0:32:160:32:19

Mark has so far sold two items,

0:32:190:32:21

turning a respectable profit of £61.

0:32:210:32:25

Christina has sold three items,

0:32:250:32:27

but made an impressive £222.

0:32:270:32:31

So, Christina is ahead in items sold and money made.

0:32:310:32:35

But there's still everything to play for.

0:32:350:32:37

Until Mark's game is thrown into disarray when he incurs an injury.

0:32:370:32:42

Everything was going incredibly well.

0:32:420:32:44

Swimmingly well, in fact.

0:32:440:32:46

I was getting out there, doing deals, then catastrophe struck,

0:32:460:32:49

and I broke my ankle.

0:32:490:32:51

But then I thought to myself, this could actually be quite good.

0:32:510:32:55

I could use my time to search the internet to find those right buyers,

0:32:550:33:00

to make sure that I get as much profit as I can.

0:33:000:33:03

Christina, of course, not that I want you to go out and break a leg.

0:33:030:33:06

No, I really don't. Honestly, I don't.

0:33:060:33:08

No, of course not, Mark.

0:33:080:33:10

But as he hits the phones, his profits hit the floor.

0:33:100:33:14

Selling his sewing sample to Paula, a dealer in Lansing, for £30,

0:33:140:33:19

making not a penny profit.

0:33:190:33:21

Seems Mark The Maverick needs to see the whites of his buyers' eyes

0:33:210:33:24

to turn the screws and make some money.

0:33:240:33:27

Yes, he must put in the legwork...

0:33:270:33:29

or wheelwork, in this case.

0:33:290:33:31

So, he travels to Margate to meet a possible buyer

0:33:310:33:34

for his pufferfish perfume brooch.

0:33:340:33:36

Do you know what? I'm not going to let a broken ankle put me off

0:33:370:33:40

finding a buyer and making profits.

0:33:400:33:43

I've brought Santi, my partner, along,

0:33:430:33:45

who's helping me get from A to B.

0:33:450:33:47

I'm here to sell my vintage perfume brooch.

0:33:470:33:50

I'm in Margate. There's a lovely vintage shop that specialises

0:33:500:33:54

in this type of thing. Let's hope I make a huge profit.

0:33:540:33:57

Are you with me? Forward, Jeeves!

0:33:570:34:00

So will Deborah, the owner of the vintage shop,

0:34:000:34:03

be interested in puffing up Mark's profit margins?

0:34:030:34:07

I found this little brooch.

0:34:070:34:08

I sent you a photograph of it.

0:34:080:34:10

-Oh.

-And it's one of those sort of perfume brooches.

0:34:100:34:13

I think it's marvellous.

0:34:130:34:15

It's a nice bit of whimsical American...

0:34:150:34:17

-Kitsch.

-Kitsch, yeah.

0:34:170:34:18

I'm thinking from the sort of '70s or something, do you think?

0:34:180:34:21

'60s, '70s, I'd say.

0:34:210:34:23

So, you know the firm?

0:34:230:34:25

Yeah, Fuller Brush. They are kind of like an Avon from America.

0:34:250:34:28

They started off in the 1912s,

0:34:280:34:30

around about that time, in Connecticut.

0:34:300:34:32

And it was like a brush company,

0:34:320:34:33

and they went round door to door, selling stuff.

0:34:330:34:36

And, hopefully, if I open it up, there should be perfume inside it.

0:34:360:34:39

Do you know, I haven't actually found how you open it.

0:34:390:34:41

-There is a hinge there somewhere, isn't it?

-Should be, yeah.

0:34:410:34:45

There we go.

0:34:450:34:46

Oh, it smells like Nana's!

0:34:460:34:48

Does it?

0:34:480:34:49

Yeah. It's lovely.

0:34:490:34:51

Oh, it is quite strong, isn't it?

0:34:510:34:53

I mean, now that you've seen it, is it something you'd like?

0:34:530:34:56

I like it for myself, yeah.

0:34:560:34:57

And I'd probably wear it as a pendant on a necklace.

0:34:570:35:00

-Oh, wow.

-And scrape out the perfume, maybe, and put, like,

0:35:000:35:02

-lip gloss or something in it.

-Oh, wow, really?

0:35:020:35:06

I was hoping to get in the region of sort of £15-£25.

0:35:060:35:09

Is that way off? Because it does smell delicious.

0:35:090:35:11

Oh...

0:35:110:35:13

Keep breathing it in, we might get to 40!

0:35:130:35:16

I mean, I would really pay, for something like this,

0:35:180:35:21

-about £15-£18.

-£15-£18?

0:35:210:35:24

-Can we do 18?

-Oh, as it's you, darling.

0:35:240:35:26

-Are you sure?

-I feel sorry for you!

0:35:260:35:28

-Yeah.

-Oh, I know.

-Buy you some new pyjamas!

0:35:280:35:31

Yeah, I will. Don't tell her, but I'll take it off later,

0:35:310:35:34

cos I can walk normally.

0:35:340:35:35

No, viewers, he really can't walk.

0:35:350:35:37

But he rolls out with a profit of £8 for the vintage brooch.

0:35:370:35:41

Meanwhile, Christina has a buyer in mind for her perfume containers,

0:35:420:35:46

and is headed for edgy East London to a luxury barbers.

0:35:460:35:49

Remember, she paid £30 for the pair.

0:35:490:35:53

We've talked about these eau de Cologne dispensers.

0:35:530:35:56

-What do you think?

-They look amazing.

0:35:560:35:58

-Do they?

-Really, really good.

-Good. Phew!

0:35:580:36:01

Obviously, we're in a gentleman's barbers, and I thought of you,

0:36:010:36:04

cos they are quite a masculine thing, aren't they?

0:36:040:36:06

Yeah, and we do a lot of fragrance work ourselves.

0:36:060:36:09

We design all our own fragrances from British ingredients,

0:36:090:36:12

so I think this is definitely something that would look good in one of our places.

0:36:120:36:16

Buying them myself, I'd say £100 for the pair.

0:36:160:36:18

£100 for the pair?

0:36:180:36:19

Oh, my goodness. Well, I was hoping for a bit more than that.

0:36:190:36:23

It's time for a proper East End 'aggle!

0:36:230:36:27

If you were to see them in a shop today,

0:36:270:36:29

they would definitely be marked up at £150 apiece.

0:36:290:36:31

-For each piece?

-Yeah.

0:36:310:36:33

-Move up a little bit.

-OK.

0:36:330:36:35

I think we could go up to 130.

0:36:350:36:37

Blimey. We've got a long way to go.

0:36:380:36:39

If I came down to 250 for the two?

0:36:390:36:43

I don't think I could go quite to that, though.

0:36:430:36:46

Oh, God, you're a good haggler, aren't you? Very good haggler.

0:36:460:36:49

I think for the two, we'd be prepared to go up to 160.

0:36:490:36:53

-For the pair.

-OK.

0:36:530:36:56

Meet me in the middle at 180 and you've got a deal.

0:36:560:36:59

Say 170?

0:37:000:37:01

180. I'm a girl that sticks to my guns, Jacob.

0:37:010:37:04

-180 it is.

-180. Thank you very much. Well done.

0:37:040:37:06

Good haggling.

0:37:060:37:08

Oh, yes. She had to work hard,

0:37:080:37:10

but that's a stunning £150 profit for The Magpie.

0:37:100:37:14

Now, both our experts have one item left,

0:37:140:37:17

and Mark is rolling into Ramsgate,

0:37:170:37:19

where he is hoping antique shop owner Andrew

0:37:190:37:22

will like the pouffe that cost him £60.

0:37:220:37:25

This really struck me when I saw it, cos it's a nice,

0:37:250:37:27

-solid lump of leather.

-Yes, yes.

0:37:270:37:30

It's got that sort of gentleman's club look about it.

0:37:300:37:33

-The colour of it.

-Definitely.

0:37:330:37:34

But you've got that rather nice sort of Aztec or Mayan decoration on it.

0:37:340:37:39

-Yes.

-And I think these type of items are in,

0:37:390:37:41

because people want occasional seating furniture.

0:37:410:37:45

It's also good for somebody in your situation.

0:37:450:37:48

Oh, yes, Andrew. I've had my leg up on it.

0:37:480:37:50

-I bet.

-Well, what do you think, though?

0:37:500:37:52

Well, I do like it, and I've actually got a customer

0:37:520:37:55

on my books who's asked me to look out for one of these.

0:37:550:37:59

And I found a couple for them in the past,

0:37:590:38:01

but they've never been quite right.

0:38:010:38:03

-Quite right.

-Because they've been too bright and too modern-looking.

0:38:030:38:07

Whereas this has got a lovely colour and a lovely age.

0:38:070:38:10

So, I might have a customer that I can move this on to.

0:38:100:38:13

Wonderful. I mean, I was hoping to get, as an initial thought,

0:38:130:38:17

at around the £100 mark for it.

0:38:170:38:20

Now, I mean, can you get anywhere near that, do you think?

0:38:200:38:22

Nowhere near, no.

0:38:220:38:24

-You are a meanie.

-I mean, I was thinking around about

0:38:250:38:29

the 60, £70 mark.

0:38:290:38:30

-Around about that.

-Well, that's getting closer.

0:38:300:38:32

I'll be absolutely honest with you. I paid 60 for it.

0:38:320:38:35

-OK.

-So I would be happy if we could, say, do 90.

0:38:350:38:41

-90.

-Could you get anywhere close to that?

0:38:410:38:45

-I could get to 80.

-85.

0:38:450:38:48

Can I push you another fiver, for that client?

0:38:480:38:51

-Well...

-Who I know would love it.

0:38:510:38:53

I think I might make a small profit on it, so I think 85.

0:38:530:38:56

-Are you sure?

-I'm sure.

0:38:560:38:57

-Wonderful.

-Thank you.

0:38:570:38:59

Thank you. Goodbye, old friend.

0:38:590:39:00

Thanks for supporting me.

0:39:000:39:02

Mark makes £25 profit on the pouffe,

0:39:020:39:05

and he's all done and dusted.

0:39:050:39:08

Well, that's a good result, isn't it?

0:39:080:39:09

I've made a good working profit on the pouffe

0:39:090:39:12

and what's better still is I'm sold up for the car-boot sale.

0:39:120:39:16

But, for Christina, the clock is still ticking,

0:39:160:39:20

and she's taken it to London.

0:39:200:39:22

You might think I might have gone a little bit crazy, having bought

0:39:220:39:25

this pocket watch movement here with absolutely no case to it whatsoever.

0:39:250:39:28

They are a bit ten-a-penny, to be honest.

0:39:280:39:30

But it's not necessarily about what the watch is -

0:39:300:39:33

it's what's written on the back.

0:39:330:39:35

And this says Bexfield.

0:39:350:39:36

So, I've brought it to Daniel Bexfield,

0:39:360:39:38

hoping that he might want to buy a little bit of his ancestry.

0:39:380:39:42

Hello, Daniel. Here we are.

0:39:420:39:44

Now, don't hate me.

0:39:440:39:45

I... No. Go on.

0:39:450:39:47

I've brought you something really special.

0:39:470:39:49

-Really special.

-Really special?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:39:490:39:52

-We've got a pocket watch movement.

-Yes. Look what it says on the back.

0:39:520:39:56

-Look! Look!

-No, I'm wondering where the case is.

-Ah.

0:39:560:40:00

Obviously, it should have had a case, shouldn't it?

0:40:000:40:02

-It would have been...

-Wow, OK.

0:40:020:40:04

Is that more interesting now?

0:40:040:40:07

It is quite interesting.

0:40:070:40:09

In 36 years of dealing, I've never seen one with Bexfield on it.

0:40:090:40:13

As a piece of Bexfield family history...

0:40:130:40:16

As a future present for my son.

0:40:160:40:19

Yes. Who might not thank you for it!

0:40:190:40:21

So, what do you think I should be paying for this?

0:40:220:40:25

-I...

-It is interesting, and as I say, I've not come across it.

0:40:250:40:27

Exactly. It's got to be worth 50 quid, hasn't it?

0:40:270:40:31

No. I'll be a laughing stock.

0:40:310:40:33

£40.

0:40:330:40:35

-That's ridiculous!

-Oh, come on, Daniel!

0:40:350:40:38

35. No, I meant to say 30!

0:40:380:40:40

-I've now said 35!

-35, done.

0:40:400:40:42

Thank you. Thank you very much.

0:40:430:40:45

Oh, my goodness. What a legend. There is probably nobody else

0:40:450:40:48

that would have bought that pocket watch. It was relatively valueless.

0:40:480:40:51

But because it had that Bexfield connection on the back of it,

0:40:510:40:54

I managed to eke a profit out of it.

0:40:540:40:56

Happy days.

0:40:560:40:58

Christina makes a final profit

0:40:580:41:00

of £34 and brings the selling to an end.

0:41:000:41:03

So, before we find out who has won,

0:41:030:41:06

let's remind ourselves of how much money our experts invested.

0:41:060:41:09

From a £250 budget, Mark bought five items and spent £118.

0:41:120:41:18

Christina bought six and spent £179.

0:41:180:41:22

But all that matters now is profit.

0:41:220:41:24

All the money from today's challenge

0:41:260:41:28

will go to our dealers' chosen charities, so let's find out

0:41:280:41:32

who is today's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

0:41:320:41:37

Darling, how are you?

0:41:370:41:38

Very well. How are you?

0:41:380:41:40

I'm fine. I'm fine.

0:41:400:41:41

-Good.

-The car-boot, Christina?

0:41:410:41:43

Do you know, I think this was possibly - no, it definitely was -

0:41:430:41:46

my favourite buying location.

0:41:460:41:48

It is a very good market, there are a lot of dealers there.

0:41:480:41:51

It's fantastic.

0:41:510:41:52

I love your lantern.

0:41:520:41:53

Oh, I didn't want to sell it.

0:41:530:41:55

It was just so beautiful.

0:41:550:41:56

And you bought some other lovely things as well.

0:41:560:41:59

I did. I bought those perfume dispensers.

0:41:590:42:01

Oh, yes. Those, I was intrigued about.

0:42:010:42:03

I think you paid nothing for those?

0:42:030:42:05

Sold them to a gentleman's beard maintenance hairdressers type place.

0:42:050:42:08

-Really?

-Yeah.

-Did he ask the inevitable question?

0:42:080:42:12

-What?

-Something for the weekend, madam?

0:42:120:42:15

And what about that fabulous brooch? I loved that. It was gorgeous.

0:42:150:42:18

It was great fun. I sold it to a vintage shop.

0:42:180:42:21

-And you got a good price?

-I made a reasonable profit on it.

0:42:210:42:23

I didn't spend enough, that's the problem.

0:42:230:42:25

I always think afterwards, I should have spent more.

0:42:250:42:27

-Should have been more courageous, like you.

-I don't know about that.

0:42:270:42:30

-I'm not looking forward to this.

-Me neither. You ready?

0:42:300:42:32

-One...

-Dos...

0:42:320:42:34

-Oh.

-Tres...

-Tres!

0:42:340:42:36

Oh! Oh, Christina!

0:42:360:42:39

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

0:42:390:42:40

I'm closing the box.

0:42:400:42:41

-I can't look.

-Do you know, this is such a surprise to me!

0:42:410:42:44

I didn't realise. Honestly, that's amazing.

0:42:440:42:47

So, that's respectable.

0:42:470:42:48

Yes.

0:42:480:42:50

That's right. Christina is today's winner,

0:42:520:42:54

and manages to bring in a comfortable victory.

0:42:540:42:57

Early mornings obviously make me haggle hard, and, boy, did I haggle.

0:42:590:43:02

But it obviously shows in the final results.

0:43:020:43:05

The Ford car-boot sale - that's my old stomping ground!

0:43:050:43:08

I really should have won this.

0:43:080:43:10

Christina's just got a natural eye.

0:43:100:43:12

But Mark will get a chance to retaliate tomorrow,

0:43:120:43:15

when The Magpie and The Maverick head to Belgium to battle again.

0:43:150:43:20

Christina Trevanion and Mark Stacey compete at a car boot in West Sussex. With £250 to spend, Christina goes all out to win, tracking down a pair of vintage perfume shop dispensers. Meanwhile, Mark battles with broken bones to make a profit. But who will come out unscathed?
