This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,

0:00:020:00:03

the show that pitches

0:00:030:00:04

TV's best-loved antiques experts

0:00:040:00:07

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

0:00:070:00:10

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 an heavy profit here.

0:00:170:00:18

Putting their reputations on the line...

0:00:180:00:21

-Who's there?

-GAVEL BANGS

0:00:210:00:23

..they'll give you the insider's view of the trade...

0:00:230:00:26

HE GROWLS ..along with their top tips

0:00:260:00:29

and savvy secrets...

0:00:290:00:30

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.

-BUGLE CALL

0:00:340:00:37

..from buying and selling.

0:00:370:00:39

-Get in there!

-LIGHTNING CRASHES

0:00:390:00:41

Coming up, Danny is riding high.

0:00:410:00:45

He's in first place.

0:00:450:00:46

Is Eric Knowles The Knowledge going to be able to catch him up?

0:00:460:00:49

Eric shows us how to spot a genuine antique.

0:00:490:00:52

But what makes this 18th-century is this decoration.

0:00:520:00:56

It's called wrigglework.

0:00:560:00:57

I don't want to be smug, but I think we're in for a nice little earner.

0:00:570:01:02

And Danny nose dives.

0:01:020:01:04

I was thinking about £95.

0:01:040:01:06

-SHE GASPS

-How much?

0:01:060:01:08

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:01:080:01:11

HORN HONKS

0:01:200:01:22

Welcome, one and all, to a very early morning in Essex.

0:01:250:01:30

Our fabulous foragers are up at the crack,

0:01:300:01:33

ready to sniff out top-notch bargains

0:01:330:01:35

and rummage for the relics.

0:01:350:01:37

Today, we're setting up stall at Marks Tey car boot,

0:01:370:01:40

but it appears the forecast has scared off

0:01:400:01:43

all but the hardiest of stallholders,

0:01:430:01:46

so our experts of the eclectic will be battling even harder

0:01:460:01:50

to find a hoard of goodies

0:01:500:01:51

that will give them a winning profit when they come to sell.

0:01:510:01:54

First up, it's the prince of pottery himself.

0:01:560:01:59

He's the aristocrat of antiques,

0:01:590:02:01

a man who knows his treasures from his trinkets.

0:02:010:02:04

Why, it's Eric The Knowledge Knowles.

0:02:040:02:08

I'm just hoping I can wipe that smile off that man's face.

0:02:080:02:14

Yes, he's up against the Artful Dodger of dealers,

0:02:140:02:17

the Wellingborough workhorse who can haggle until it hurts.

0:02:170:02:20

It's Danny Del Boy Sebastian.

0:02:200:02:24

I've got to get in there and have a look,

0:02:240:02:26

see what they're all looking at.

0:02:260:02:27

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

0:02:270:02:31

and all their profits will go to their chosen charity.

0:02:310:02:34

But who's going to be riding the gravy train of treasures

0:02:340:02:38

and who's going to be asking, "Please, sir, can I have some more?"

0:02:380:02:41

Only time will tell.

0:02:410:02:44

So, Eric Knowles and Danny Sebastian,

0:02:440:02:47

it's time to put your money where your mouth is.

0:02:470:02:51

Good morning. Or, to be more precise,

0:02:510:02:53

-good very early morning.

-Good very early morning, Eric.

0:02:530:02:56

-How are you, Knowledge?

-I'm fine. I'm all right, thank you. Yourself?

0:02:560:02:59

-Very well, thank you. Very well.

-Good, good, good.

0:02:590:03:01

And, I mean, are you a bit of a regular at car boots?

0:03:010:03:04

-This is my home.

-This is it?

0:03:040:03:05

This is where I love to be, really - in car boots.

0:03:050:03:08

-This is Del Boy's natural habitat, is it?

-Absolutely.

-Is it?

0:03:080:03:11

-Yes, and proud of it.

-THEY LAUGH

0:03:110:03:14

And why not? Because we've got £250 to spend,

0:03:140:03:17

but just looking over our shoulder, it's looking a bit thin out there.

0:03:170:03:21

I mean, I've been here where there have been aisles

0:03:210:03:24

and aisles of stalls,

0:03:240:03:25

so we might have a bit of, you know, a challenge on our hands here.

0:03:250:03:29

Indeed. But, again, you just never know, do you,

0:03:290:03:32

what you're going to find out there?

0:03:320:03:34

It's not necessarily got to be a big boot to find good gear.

0:03:340:03:37

You know, you can find good gear in the first one.

0:03:370:03:40

-But less of the rabbiting.

-Yeah.

-I see you've got your wellies on.

0:03:400:03:44

Yeah. And look at you. Sartorial elegance.

0:03:440:03:47

You're wearing trousers that talk to you.

0:03:470:03:50

Yeah, "Money talks."

0:03:500:03:51

I've got to let the word be known - money talks and cash is king.

0:03:510:03:55

-We know that, especially at these sort of places.

-Well, we do.

0:03:550:03:57

Well, let's just go out there and spend it.

0:03:570:03:59

OK, I think you start at that end and I'll start at this end.

0:03:590:04:02

-And I'll meet you in the middle.

-Yeah, I think it'll take

0:04:020:04:04

-about five minutes.

-THEY LAUGH

0:04:040:04:07

# Consider yourself at home... #

0:04:070:04:09

Ooh, Eric, it seems, is on the back foot for today's car-booter.

0:04:090:04:13

Not only is this Danny's preferred buying arena,

0:04:130:04:15

but the low turnout has got The Knowledge knocking at his knees.

0:04:150:04:19

So, what's his plan of action?

0:04:190:04:22

My strategy today is to not give in to desperation.

0:04:220:04:27

The smidgen of a profit - just buy it.

0:04:270:04:29

Yes, don't get desperate now, old chap.

0:04:290:04:32

Meanwhile, Del Boy's not even going to think about what to buy.

0:04:320:04:36

My plan of action? No deliberating.

0:04:360:04:39

Get in there, get some nice pieces bought

0:04:390:04:42

because at this time of the year, it's slim pickings.

0:04:420:04:45

Mm. He's an eager beaver if ever there was one.

0:04:450:04:48

It appears Danny's all pumped up and ready to get in there early.

0:04:480:04:52

No deliberating Del Boy.

0:04:520:04:54

Um, I suppose what we've got here is a sprayer.

0:04:540:04:57

Like a pesticide sprayer or flowers, you know.

0:04:570:05:00

Made of brass. About 1920s. Nice little wooden handle.

0:05:000:05:04

I'm going to ask this chap how much it is, see if I can get a deal.

0:05:040:05:07

-How much money is it?

-£20.

0:05:070:05:10

-Can you do 15 and we've got a deal?

-I'd like to.

-You can do.

0:05:100:05:14

I could be persuaded at 16.

0:05:140:05:16

-16, we've got a deal.

-Yeah.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:05:160:05:18

I've just got myself a lovely, little, brass, 1930s sprayer.

0:05:180:05:22

It's got branding, which is always good to have.

0:05:220:05:26

Cost me £16.

0:05:260:05:28

I'm estimating to sell it for about 50 at least

0:05:280:05:31

because it's really nice.

0:05:310:05:33

I'm going to polish it up, make it shine.

0:05:330:05:35

It's quite quirky, really.

0:05:350:05:37

The only problem I've got with it is there's no hose.

0:05:370:05:40

Why is the hose not with it?

0:05:400:05:42

Because, in the 1930s,

0:05:420:05:44

these would have been made from natural rubber.

0:05:440:05:46

It will have perished.

0:05:460:05:48

It can go anywhere.

0:05:480:05:49

It can go to a gardener, it can go into a shop as a prop,

0:05:490:05:52

it can probably even go into a household as a doorstop.

0:05:520:05:55

I've done well there.

0:05:550:05:57

So, Danny's competent no deliberating strategy

0:05:570:06:00

has his first buy in the bag.

0:06:000:06:02

On the other side of the car boot, Eric is keen to get cracking.

0:06:020:06:07

WELSH ACCENT: And over by there,

0:06:070:06:09

has stumbled upon some Celtic kitchen clobber -

0:06:090:06:12

a Welsh-crested pinny, look you.

0:06:120:06:14

-Oh, it's a Welsh one. A Welsh pinny.

-Yeah, I think you need a pinny.

0:06:150:06:18

-Ooh.

-Yours for £5.

-£5?

-Yes.

0:06:180:06:24

-Oh, dear. Does it fit?

-I think it's yours.

0:06:240:06:26

-I think it's got your name on it.

-Does it fit any size?

-Yeah.

0:06:260:06:28

Well, I am part Welsh, actually. I think I'm one-eighth Welsh.

0:06:280:06:31

Yeah, she's not falling for that one, Eric.

0:06:310:06:33

-You've got yourself a real deal there.

-£5.

0:06:330:06:36

-£5 - that's your best price?

-BOTH:

-Yes.

-Yes, OK.

0:06:360:06:39

-You look like the money honey.

-Nice doing business with you.

0:06:390:06:41

-Arrgh! Oh, dear me.

-And, as the... HE CLEARS THROAT

0:06:410:06:44

..money honey takes Eric's £5,

0:06:440:06:47

his Welsh ware gets him off the mark.

0:06:470:06:49

But for a man whose usual penchant is pottery,

0:06:490:06:52

what made him go off-piste with this piece?

0:06:520:06:55

There's something very regal about this apron.

0:06:560:07:00

Erm, I'm just thinking who I know who is Welsh.

0:07:000:07:05

I've bought it now. Cost me a fiver.

0:07:050:07:08

I'll just have to get my thinking cap on.

0:07:080:07:11

Let's see... I wonder if they sell thinking caps here.

0:07:110:07:13

No, but Eric does come across

0:07:130:07:15

something he definitely wasn't expecting.

0:07:150:07:17

-Ooh, hello.

-Oh, hello, darling. All right?

0:07:170:07:19

-ESSEX ACCENT:

-Hello, darling. You all right?

0:07:190:07:21

-Give us a kiss.

-Oh, right. Oh, thank you.

0:07:210:07:23

-How are you?

-Yeah, I'm fine. How are the children? All right?

-Yeah.

0:07:230:07:26

How indiscreet. Clacton-on-Sea, 1978.

0:07:260:07:31

-# Shake your booty, baby. #

-SCEPTICALLY: Yes.

0:07:310:07:34

Joking aside, this rummaging rascal needs to get his head down,

0:07:340:07:38

as we all know pottery is the only love affair this man's ever had.

0:07:380:07:42

Speaking of which...

0:07:420:07:44

-How much is the jelly mould?

-£10.

-£10.

0:07:440:07:47

-Best price?

-Maybe eight.

-Eight.

0:07:470:07:50

I'd have settled at nine, but anyway, there you go.

0:07:500:07:52

-Well, I'll take nine off you.

-HE LAUGHS

0:07:520:07:54

Well, no, we've already agreed on eight, so...

0:07:540:07:57

You're a good lad. Lovely. Lovely jubbly.

0:07:570:08:00

Well, I'm just double-checking to make sure

0:08:000:08:02

that I've got no chips and cracks that I missed. No, I haven't.

0:08:020:08:05

It has been signed. Can't quite make it out.

0:08:050:08:08

I'll check that out when I get it home.

0:08:080:08:10

Looks to me to be Victorian.

0:08:100:08:12

No, not bad. For £8, I think that was a pretty good buy.

0:08:120:08:17

So, with a pinny and a jelly mould in the bag,

0:08:170:08:19

it appears old Knowles thinks there's money to be made

0:08:190:08:22

in kitchenalia.

0:08:220:08:24

And it seems Del Boy's got the same idea,

0:08:240:08:26

as he pockets a vintage rolling pin for £8.

0:08:260:08:30

Kitchenalia is so in.

0:08:310:08:33

Everybody loves a bit of kitchenalia.

0:08:330:08:35

Whether they want to use it as a prop on their dresser

0:08:350:08:37

or whether they want to use it to roll some pastry out,

0:08:370:08:40

it's really in.

0:08:400:08:42

So, I'm sure I'm not going to find a problem to sell this nice,

0:08:420:08:45

ceramic, crackle-glaze, nut-brown,

0:08:450:08:48

made-in-England rolling pin.

0:08:480:08:50

I'm going to make plenty of dough with this.

0:08:500:08:53

Yeah, see what he did there?

0:08:530:08:55

Now, both our dealers have two buys in the bag.

0:08:550:08:58

Nevertheless, Eric feels like this car boot's not delivering today.

0:08:580:09:02

Do you know what? I just want to spend some money.

0:09:020:09:04

I'm just looking for something with potential.

0:09:040:09:07

So, Eric begins the mission to blow his budget.

0:09:070:09:10

-He looks...

-Good on you.

0:09:100:09:12

What else have we got there? Hippopotamuses? No.

0:09:120:09:14

OK, have a good fair.

0:09:140:09:17

..and he looks...

0:09:170:09:18

How much is it? Then I know.

0:09:200:09:22

A tenner? Yeah, don't think me rude.

0:09:220:09:24

I've got to spend bigger or else I'm in trouble.

0:09:240:09:27

..and, you've guessed it, he looks some more.

0:09:270:09:30

No, not for me.

0:09:300:09:32

Well, with Eric struggling to unload some cash

0:09:320:09:34

and on the hunt for that big-ticket item,

0:09:340:09:37

our mischievous marauder Del Boy is only too happy to grease the wheels.

0:09:370:09:42

Loads of pottery. I know he loves it. You'll be able...

0:09:420:09:45

-Hey, charge him dear.

-I will do.

-Charge him dear.

0:09:450:09:48

Ooh, very crafty, Del Boy. Very crafty.

0:09:480:09:51

Unaware that his adversary

0:09:510:09:53

is turning the stallholders against him,

0:09:530:09:55

Eric has his eye on three ornate cut-glass bottles.

0:09:550:09:58

Could this be the big-ticket purchase he was after?

0:09:580:10:02

This is where I want my wife with me.

0:10:020:10:04

-MAN CHUCKLES

-Cos she'd tell me, you know.

0:10:040:10:06

-Because these are very feminine things, aren't they?

-They are.

0:10:060:10:09

We're just mere mortals. We're only men.

0:10:090:10:12

You know, and they know. They know.

0:10:120:10:14

Even without Mrs Knowles, Eric's keen.

0:10:140:10:17

So, you can have all three for 150. How's that?

0:10:170:10:20

-All three for 150?

-That's...that's a good deal.

0:10:210:10:25

You're a gentleman.

0:10:250:10:27

With no haggle necessary,

0:10:270:10:28

this classy crystal is the most expensive purchase

0:10:280:10:31

of the day so far for either dealer.

0:10:310:10:34

Well, I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I was

0:10:340:10:38

to find these three fabulous bottles with their original silver tops.

0:10:380:10:43

Erm, late Victorian, I think, most of these,

0:10:430:10:46

but almost certainly English.

0:10:460:10:49

Probably made in Stourbridge,

0:10:490:10:51

where some of the finest glass in the world was made

0:10:510:10:55

certainly during the 19th and early 20th century.

0:10:550:10:57

And it's interesting to remember that, today,

0:10:570:11:01

we're so used to getting perfume in a ready-made bottle,

0:11:010:11:05

but our great-grandparents would have something as grand as this.

0:11:050:11:09

They'd have to take off the stopper and they'd have a little funnel

0:11:090:11:14

and they'd have to decant their perfume or their cologne

0:11:140:11:18

into the bottle.

0:11:180:11:19

But one thing's for certain - at £150,

0:11:190:11:23

the only place where these three bottles were going to be going today

0:11:230:11:27

is home with me.

0:11:270:11:29

So, Eric's extravagant spend takes us up to the halfway point

0:11:290:11:33

in this banquet of buying.

0:11:330:11:35

Time to have a look at the scoresheet.

0:11:350:11:37

From £250 of their own money, Eric's cooking on gas so far,

0:11:400:11:44

spending £163 on three items, leaving £87 in his kitty.

0:11:440:11:50

Danny has only bought two items and spent just £24,

0:11:520:11:56

so has a substantial 226 left to play with.

0:11:560:12:00

But before they get back to the boot,

0:12:010:12:03

there's time to compare notes.

0:12:030:12:05

-So, how goes it, Del?

-Good.

-Good?

-Very good.

0:12:050:12:09

-Very good?

-Yes. You know, I looked at it this morning,

0:12:090:12:12

I thought, "There's only a few rows.

0:12:120:12:14

-"We're not going to find a lot of gear here."

-Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:12:140:12:16

-But you did.

-Yeah, there's plenty there.

-Oh.

0:12:160:12:19

-You seem a little bit down.

-No, no, I'm so happy for you.

0:12:190:12:24

-Oh, good, good.

-Well, hang on a minute.

0:12:240:12:27

I have to tell you that the first stand I looked at,

0:12:270:12:30

I bought something.

0:12:300:12:32

-Well, that's good, isn't it?

-Oh, it was a good start.

0:12:320:12:34

I've been watching you. You've bought a fair few bits.

0:12:340:12:37

-I've been watching you.

-Have you?

0:12:370:12:38

-I think you're trying to be a bit smug here now.

-No, no, no.

0:12:380:12:41

Far from it. I'll always be upfront with you, Del.

0:12:410:12:44

-Don't you worry about that.

-So you should do, Knowledge.

-Yeah.

0:12:440:12:47

You've got plenty of knowledge, you know it all,

0:12:470:12:49

so there's no need for you to be smug.

0:12:490:12:51

-Have you been talking to my mother or what?

-Don't you worry.

0:12:510:12:54

Don't you worry about who I'm talking to.

0:12:540:12:56

I know all about you.

0:12:560:12:57

Well, the real truth is, Danny, you do know my mother.

0:12:570:13:00

I do know your mother.

0:13:000:13:01

Just be careful. I might try and sell her something.

0:13:010:13:03

-Hey, listen, take my advice - make sure...

-BOTH:

-You get cash.

0:13:030:13:07

-Ta-ra.

-Bye-bye.

0:13:070:13:09

Curiouser and curiouser. Danny knows Knowles's mum.

0:13:090:13:13

Well, the world of wares is a small one. Hmm.

0:13:130:13:15

Now, while Del Boy's worried about spending his money,

0:13:150:13:18

the only thing big spender Eric is concerned about is, well, Del Boy.

0:13:180:13:23

You know, he gives the impression

0:13:230:13:25

of being a little bit, you know, sort of...

0:13:250:13:27

But he's...he's quite canny.

0:13:280:13:32

Yes, old Del Boy is certainly feeling confident today.

0:13:320:13:35

Get ready for a lesson in dealer's misdirection

0:13:350:13:38

as he goes in for this foot warmer.

0:13:380:13:40

Have you got...have you got...? Hold on. I've got one here.

0:13:400:13:44

-"Made in China." Eh?

-HE LAUGHS

0:13:470:13:49

-How about that?

-Is that what it says?

0:13:490:13:52

Well, something...

0:13:520:13:53

It's been a bit rubbed out, so don't quote me on it.

0:13:530:13:56

No, better not, eh?

0:13:560:13:57

"Made in France." French.

0:13:590:14:03

Let's cut to the chase. What's the best price you can do me?

0:14:030:14:05

-I'll do 40.

-Oh, no.

0:14:050:14:06

-You've got to knock a bit more than that off it.

-No.

0:14:060:14:08

No? You've got plenty here.

0:14:080:14:10

I mean, you'd make a profit on something else, wouldn't you?

0:14:100:14:13

How about, um...?

0:14:130:14:15

-How about we go 35 and my hand's ready?

-I'll do 35.

0:14:150:14:17

-You'd do 35, wouldn't you?

-Yeah.

-Thank you very much.

0:14:170:14:20

Yeah, I'll have a punt at that.

0:14:200:14:21

The dealer told me this is, like, mid-19th century.

0:14:230:14:28

I don't think it is. I think this is very early 20th century.

0:14:280:14:33

It's a lovely carriage foot-warming box.

0:14:330:14:37

It's made of brass, it's French,

0:14:370:14:40

and, you know, you'd have put charcoal inside

0:14:400:14:44

and the young lady would have put her feet

0:14:440:14:46

on these lovely wooden slats

0:14:460:14:48

and just let the heat rise and keep her little tootsies warm.

0:14:480:14:52

And it's all there. The patina's lovely.

0:14:520:14:55

You know what? I'd like about £100 for it.

0:14:550:14:59

Maybe even more because it is quite rare.

0:14:590:15:02

It's cost me today £35.

0:15:020:15:06

That is a bargain

0:15:060:15:09

and I'm getting a really warm feeling about this.

0:15:090:15:11

# Looking for some hot stuff, baby this evening... #

0:15:110:15:14

So, our Danny's chuffed with his French foot warmer

0:15:140:15:17

and predicting a hot profit when it's time to sell it.

0:15:170:15:20

Our boys are now tied at three items each,

0:15:200:15:22

so Eric moves quickly on to a Royal Doulton toby jug for just £20.

0:15:220:15:27

Royal Doulton. Um, made in Stoke-on-Trent.

0:15:270:15:31

When is this one? Probably 1970s.

0:15:310:15:35

And it appears he's no mug when it comes to boot buying. Or is he?

0:15:350:15:40

Many moons ago,

0:15:400:15:42

David Biggs modelled me for a Royal Doulton character jug

0:15:420:15:48

and it supposedly has an edition of 1,500.

0:15:480:15:53

I think my mother bought 400 of them, actually,

0:15:530:15:56

so that's probably why there aren't that many on the market.

0:15:560:15:59

I wonder who bought the other 1,100, then, Eric?

0:15:590:16:03

Anyway, he secures his fourth item

0:16:030:16:05

and he's spent just over £180 of his budget,

0:16:050:16:08

while Danny has spent just £59.

0:16:080:16:11

With the clock ticking, Del Boy finds some Tinseltown treasure -

0:16:110:16:15

a much coveted and classic Vertigo movie poster.

0:16:150:16:18

-What price do you have on this, please, John? Please?

-£80.

0:16:180:16:22

All the fives do it? I don't really want to go a lot more than that.

0:16:220:16:25

I'm trying to help you here.

0:16:250:16:26

I'll tell you what, before I go, 60 quid and that's it.

0:16:260:16:29

-I'll be honest with you.

-60 quid.

-I'm not trying to be hard.

0:16:290:16:32

-No, I won't go a penny less.

-Give us all the fives.

0:16:320:16:34

-Come on. Don't be hard on me, now.

-No, 60 quid and that's it.

0:16:340:16:37

Ooh, stalemate over a fiver. DANNY GROANS

0:16:370:16:39

-Come on. Give us 55.

-No, Danny, I can't.

0:16:390:16:41

-It's got to be 60 quid. That's it.

-I'll meet you in the middle.

0:16:410:16:44

Who's going to blink first?

0:16:440:16:46

Wait for it.

0:16:460:16:48

-Go on.

-55?

0:16:480:16:50

Hold on. Did you see that? TAPE REWINDS

0:16:500:16:52

A handshake, then a price.

0:16:520:16:55

-Go on.

-55?

0:16:550:16:58

-Go on.

-Oh, you're a good man.

0:16:580:16:59

A clever ploy by dealer Danny.

0:16:590:17:02

After a battery of bartering, a slightly dazed seller gives in

0:17:020:17:05

to Danny's relentless haggling for this cinematic collectable.

0:17:050:17:09

You know, as soon as I saw this poster,

0:17:090:17:11

I got a little bit queasy myself.

0:17:110:17:13

Vertigo - one of Alfred Hitchcock's most famous films.

0:17:130:17:17

Well, I've paid £55 for this piece. It is great.

0:17:170:17:22

I think there's a lot of people who do collect memorabilia,

0:17:220:17:26

film posters, that sort of thing.

0:17:260:17:28

You know, there is a lot of demand for it out there.

0:17:280:17:31

This is actually a later copy.

0:17:310:17:33

Down here, I can actually see that it's 1996,

0:17:330:17:37

so, you know, it's about 20 years old.

0:17:370:17:40

It's still a very nice piece.

0:17:400:17:42

I think Alfred Hitchcock is very well known for his films

0:17:420:17:45

back in the day and there will be a lot of people, I feel,

0:17:450:17:48

that are going to be wanting to buy it.

0:17:480:17:50

Yes, Danny's reprinted movie poster

0:17:500:17:52

hitches him level to Eric on four items each.

0:17:520:17:55

Now, while our pair are neck and neck in this car boot chase,

0:17:570:18:00

it would seem that Del Boy is definitely betting on himself

0:18:000:18:03

-for victory.

-And he's off.

0:18:030:18:05

BUGLE CALL

0:18:050:18:07

He's in first place.

0:18:070:18:09

Is Eric Knowles The Knowledge going to be able to catch him up?

0:18:090:18:12

He's not. He's in second place. He's heading there now.

0:18:120:18:15

The finishing post is not far. Oh, my gosh.

0:18:150:18:17

It's going to be a win, this is, to Del Boy!

0:18:170:18:21

And as Danny keeps himself entertained,

0:18:210:18:24

Eric is running his own race for riches,

0:18:240:18:27

and manages to score an 18th-century copper warming pan for £8.

0:18:270:18:31

Well, I homed in on this one

0:18:320:18:34

because once I saw the decoration on here,

0:18:340:18:39

I did recognise it for being 18th-century.

0:18:390:18:42

And this decoration is all put on by a hammer.

0:18:420:18:45

It's called wrigglework.

0:18:450:18:47

I actually like this strap that's been riveted on.

0:18:470:18:51

It's an object which has been put to very good use.

0:18:510:18:55

And, you know, you're talking about somewhere around about 1750,

0:18:550:19:00

maybe 1780.

0:19:000:19:02

You know, if I was looking at this 30 years ago,

0:19:020:19:06

I would have been lucky to have bought this

0:19:060:19:09

for less than £150.

0:19:090:19:13

So, how the mighty fall. I just bought it for eight.

0:19:130:19:16

So, I think - and again, I don't want to be smug -

0:19:160:19:20

but I think we're in for a nice little earner.

0:19:200:19:24

And with that, Eric decides he's all bought up.

0:19:240:19:27

Just in time too, as the car boot is coming to a close.

0:19:270:19:30

Meanwhile, Danny has been mesmerised by some magnolias

0:19:300:19:34

and spent £9 on this 1950s picture.

0:19:340:19:38

I've just got this print from a really shy dealer.

0:19:380:19:42

It is by the king of kitsch Vladimir Tretchikoff.

0:19:420:19:45

Now, you might know him

0:19:450:19:47

for a portrait that he did of The Chinese Girl,

0:19:470:19:51

which went under the hammer a couple of years ago

0:19:510:19:54

for almost £1 million.

0:19:540:19:56

I think these still lives that he also did

0:19:560:19:59

is going to be coming up and worth its weight in gold in time to come,

0:19:590:20:03

so keep your eyes out for all Tretchikoffs

0:20:030:20:06

because they really are a piece to really pick up.

0:20:060:20:10

And with that final tip, today's car boot comes to an end.

0:20:110:20:15

So, let's check out how much has been spent in Essex.

0:20:150:20:19

From the £250 they had to play with,

0:20:200:20:23

Eric bought five items and made a big dent in the budget,

0:20:230:20:26

spending £191.

0:20:260:20:30

Danny also bought five items, but spent marginally less -

0:20:300:20:33

£123 in all.

0:20:330:20:36

So, after a day at the car boot, time to compare and contrast.

0:20:360:20:40

Well, Danny, I think it's fair to say

0:20:400:20:42

that we've been having similar thoughts

0:20:420:20:44

while we've been out there doing battle

0:20:440:20:47

because we've both got a bit of metal

0:20:470:20:49

and we've both got a bit for the kitchen.

0:20:490:20:52

But where we part company

0:20:520:20:54

is that I've gone for a very upmarket, Welsh pinny

0:20:540:20:58

and you've got some very interesting pictures.

0:20:580:21:01

-Iconic.

-OK.

-Great.

0:21:010:21:03

I've had a good day today. A really good day.

0:21:030:21:05

I see we're going to make plenty of brass.

0:21:050:21:08

Yes, we have as well, and that is what I think it is.

0:21:080:21:10

It's for warming your feet in a coach or a car.

0:21:100:21:13

-You've got it.

-Yeah? Very smart as well.

0:21:130:21:15

They don't call you Knowledge Knowles for nowt, do they?

0:21:150:21:18

No, no, no, listen and learn because I've got something here

0:21:180:21:21

that warms your bed, so I'm very happy with that.

0:21:210:21:24

-What a lovely bit of glass.

-They are lovely.

0:21:240:21:26

-Cut-glass crystal, is it?

-Cut-glass.

-How old?

0:21:260:21:29

They're all around about 1880, 1890.

0:21:290:21:33

-Nice, early pieces.

-So, it's nice quality, silver tops.

0:21:330:21:35

A bit quirky, but for my money...

0:21:350:21:38

-BOTH:

-Hitchcock.

-HE LAUGHS

0:21:380:21:41

-Hitchcock.

-I know. I mean, that is a great poster, isn't it?

0:21:410:21:44

-Oh, absolutely fantastic.

-Yeah, you can't...

0:21:440:21:46

In actual fact, I saw you walk past it.

0:21:460:21:49

I thought, "There's no way Eric's going to leave that."

0:21:490:21:51

The Knowledge did. I was straight in, bought it.

0:21:510:21:54

Well, you know, it was a very early start.

0:21:540:21:57

-Remember, we're all on a learning curve.

-Oh, yes, indeed.

0:21:570:21:59

I mean, I can't forget that.

0:21:590:22:01

How can I forget that when I'm alongside The Knowledge?

0:22:010:22:03

He's lulling me into a false sense of security.

0:22:030:22:06

-I wouldn't do a thing like that.

-Oh, no, no.

0:22:060:22:08

Once I've heard your patter...

0:22:080:22:10

If you're giving it to me,

0:22:100:22:11

you'll be giving it to your buyers and that's what worries me.

0:22:110:22:14

-I'll agree with that.

-HE LAUGHS

0:22:140:22:17

Our pair of eager boot bargaineers

0:22:200:22:22

must now turn their attention from purchasing to profit.

0:22:220:22:26

Using any and all avenues,

0:22:260:22:28

Eric and Danny must now scour the four corners

0:22:280:22:30

of this green and pleasant land in search of suitable buyers

0:22:300:22:34

hoping to accumulate the biggest profit,

0:22:340:22:37

all of which will go to their chosen charities.

0:22:370:22:40

So, down in his Wellingborough workshop,

0:22:400:22:42

how is Del Boy feeling about his car booty?

0:22:420:22:45

I didn't actually spend a lot of money on the items I bought,

0:22:450:22:49

but the most money I spent was on my Alfred Hitchcock Vertigo poster.

0:22:490:22:54

It's not original, but it's still a cool thing.

0:22:540:22:58

I'm really happy with my Tretchikoff print.

0:22:580:23:01

It is a steal at £9.

0:23:010:23:04

And personally, he is an artist that I really, really like,

0:23:040:23:08

so I'm not going to have a problem, I don't think, selling that.

0:23:080:23:11

Anybody who's a bit funky, anybody who wants, you know,

0:23:110:23:14

one of Tretchikoff's prints or is a collector, I'm your man.

0:23:140:23:19

But the real cream of what I found was this foot warmer.

0:23:190:23:25

I think I'm going to be trying to find a museum,

0:23:250:23:27

something of that sort of description

0:23:270:23:29

where they're going to really appreciate this bit of kit I've got.

0:23:290:23:32

I don't think there's really going to be a great, big challenge

0:23:320:23:36

in getting rid of these items.

0:23:360:23:38

The challenge is going to be whether or not I make a big profit.

0:23:380:23:42

Indeed.

0:23:420:23:43

And remember, Danny also has his brass sprayer

0:23:430:23:46

and retro rolling pin to help his profit pot along.

0:23:460:23:49

Eric has returned to his warren in High Wycombe

0:23:490:23:52

and has done some research

0:23:520:23:54

and there's good news about his jelly mould.

0:23:540:23:57

Well, it might look like something of a mixed bag,

0:23:570:23:59

but it's not a bad collection.

0:23:590:24:02

The jelly mould is great

0:24:020:24:04

because I've deciphered the name Brownfield on there,

0:24:040:24:07

and on top of that, it's actually got a date on it

0:24:070:24:10

because it's marked fractionally 11/87 -

0:24:100:24:15

November 1887.

0:24:150:24:18

Not a bad year.

0:24:180:24:19

In fact, Golden Jubilee for Queen Victoria, that year.

0:24:190:24:23

It's wonderful to find an 18th-century copper warming pan

0:24:230:24:29

at a car boot.

0:24:290:24:30

And then, finally, my three lovely,

0:24:300:24:34

English, cut-glass, silver-topped, Victorian perfume bottles.

0:24:340:24:40

Erm, I paid reasonable money for them,

0:24:400:24:43

but I hope to make a reasonable profit.

0:24:430:24:47

So, all in all,

0:24:470:24:49

it was worth getting out of bed at four o'clock in the morning.

0:24:490:24:53

Yes, the early bird catches the worm.

0:24:530:24:55

Eric also needs to find buyers for his Welsh pinny and golfers jug.

0:24:550:25:00

Our dealers must now get down to the nitty-gritty,

0:25:010:25:04

whipping out their little black books

0:25:040:25:06

and hitting the phones, the web and the road,

0:25:060:25:09

traversing the breadth of Britain,

0:25:090:25:12

from rolling countryside to bustling city,

0:25:120:25:15

in order to find the right buyers who'll pay the right prices

0:25:150:25:18

and lead them to a winning profit.

0:25:180:25:20

But remember, no deal is sealed without the shake of a hand.

0:25:200:25:25

Eric is first to kick off his selling

0:25:260:25:28

and is sticking close to his home in Buckinghamshire,

0:25:280:25:31

starting at a 17th-century coaching house in West Wickham,

0:25:310:25:35

bringing his 18th-century warming pan to show landlord Ray.

0:25:350:25:39

It owes him £8.

0:25:390:25:41

This is the sort of object that, back in the 18th century,

0:25:420:25:46

there'd be no shortage of in your place.

0:25:460:25:48

-And it was the duty of the maid...

-Yeah.

-..to run it across the bed.

0:25:480:25:53

When the steam stopped coming off,

0:25:530:25:55

then you knew full well that the sheets were nice and dry.

0:25:550:26:00

I know for a fact that this area here is 18th-century.

0:26:000:26:05

The actual handle itself is probably Victorian.

0:26:050:26:08

Probably been replaced.

0:26:080:26:10

I'm hoping that you've taken to my warming pan.

0:26:100:26:14

Well, yes, I have, actually,

0:26:140:26:16

because we've had a few highwaymen through here before.

0:26:160:26:19

-Oh, have you?

-THEY LAUGH

0:26:190:26:21

I'm not here to do highway robbery. I'm here to do a decent deal.

0:26:210:26:25

Erm, and as you're mine host,

0:26:250:26:28

I want to keep in your favour, but...

0:26:280:26:31

-So, where can we get a figure?

-Well, you come at me.

0:26:310:26:34

You tell me what you're thinking in terms of

0:26:340:26:36

and let's just see where we go cos I won't drag this out.

0:26:360:26:40

-I'm thinking of around about £40.

-£40?

0:26:400:26:43

Life's too short. Put your hand there. £40.

0:26:430:26:46

You've got yourself an 18th-century...

0:26:460:26:49

-Thank you very much, Eric.

-..copper warming pan

0:26:490:26:52

with a bit of a Victorian handle.

0:26:520:26:54

This will be happy in our restaurant by tomorrow morning.

0:26:540:26:57

With a price tag of 450 quid on it?

0:26:570:26:59

No, no, but whatever.

0:26:590:27:01

So, life's too short for a haggle, it would seem,

0:27:010:27:04

but this highwayman does come away with a warming £32 profit.

0:27:040:27:08

Almost tripling his outlay, it's a strong start from Eric.

0:27:080:27:12

But our Danny's certainly not sitting on his thumbs.

0:27:140:27:17

He's headed all the way to Preston.

0:27:170:27:19

He's visiting Becky,

0:27:190:27:21

the owner of a vintage decor and antiques shop

0:27:210:27:24

with a Tretchikoff print that cost him £9.

0:27:240:27:28

-Hi there.

-Hello, Becky.

-Hello.

-How are you?

-All right. How are you?

0:27:280:27:33

-Wet.

-Wet. I know. It's not so good out there, is it?

-How are you?

0:27:330:27:36

-Yeah, nice to see you.

-Always a pleasure.

0:27:360:27:38

-SHE LAUGHS

-What have you got for me?

0:27:380:27:41

Never you mind what I've got for you.

0:27:410:27:43

"What have I got for you?" Let's have a look.

0:27:430:27:45

This is a print of one of the most iconic painters

0:27:450:27:49

of the 1960s, 1970s - a Vladimir Tretchikoff.

0:27:490:27:52

I think he's a bit more known, really,

0:27:520:27:54

for his portraits of Asian women, but...

0:27:540:27:57

-Yeah, I thought I've seen those.

-You've seen them, haven't you, yes?

0:27:570:28:00

Yeah, yeah, I have. They do sell well.

0:28:000:28:02

We've had one that's been a bit similar.

0:28:020:28:04

You don't have to tell me. You don't have to tell me.

0:28:040:28:06

-I know that.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:28:060:28:08

-They do sell well. I know that.

-Yeah, yeah.

0:28:080:28:10

-And you'll find that with the price I'm going to give you.

-All right.

0:28:100:28:13

-Yeah, go on.

-Give us 55 quid.

0:28:130:28:15

Ooh. Would you take about 40?

0:28:170:28:20

-When you say about 40...?

-Well, yeah, 40.

0:28:200:28:23

I could do it for 40.

0:28:230:28:25

-You'd like to have a deal at 40, would you?

-I would, if you could.

0:28:250:28:28

Cor, I tell you what, that beautiful smile.

0:28:280:28:31

-I'm really trying hard.

-I'm going to put my hand there.

0:28:310:28:33

-You're really what? Hold on.

-THEY LAUGH

0:28:330:28:35

-Yeah, perfect.

-£40?

-Yeah, I can make a bit on that.

0:28:350:28:38

-Well, that'll do me. Thank you very much, Becky.

-Lovely.

0:28:380:28:40

Oh, you old charmer.

0:28:400:28:42

And that sale puts £31 into Danny's profit pot.

0:28:420:28:46

Oh, my gosh! Licence to print money.

0:28:460:28:50

Indeed. And that licence also takes him to a community cafe

0:28:500:28:54

in Brockley, in South London,

0:28:540:28:56

where he sells his vintage rolling pin to Jackie and Robin

0:28:560:28:59

-to use in their apprentice scheme...

-12?

-12?

0:28:590:29:03

-I reckon, yeah, 12.

-Are you happy with that?

-Yeah.

0:29:030:29:06

-Yeah, I'm happy with that, yeah.

-That's good.

0:29:060:29:08

..making a small profit of £4.

0:29:080:29:11

So, Del Boy's leading by two sales to one,

0:29:110:29:14

but not to be outdone,

0:29:140:29:16

Eric has picked up a whiff of eau de profit

0:29:160:29:19

as he heads to Covent Garden with his most expensive boot-sale buy.

0:29:190:29:23

Well, I'm on the scent of a trail that's leading me

0:29:230:29:26

to one of Britain's oldest perfume houses.

0:29:260:29:29

I'm there to do a deal on my three silver-topped perfume bottles.

0:29:290:29:33

I'm going to make sure that this is a deal not to be sniffed at.

0:29:330:29:38

Yes. Remember, the bottles cost him £150.

0:29:380:29:43

-Hello. Robin, I presume.

-Hello. Yes, welcome.

0:29:430:29:46

-Nice to meet you.

-You too.

-Very nice to meet you.

0:29:460:29:48

So, I believe your perfume house goes back to the 1870s.

0:29:480:29:52

That's right. We were established in 1870.

0:29:520:29:55

William Penhaligon -

0:29:550:29:57

a fantastic, flamboyant perfume creator

0:29:570:30:00

who was looking to make a name for himself.

0:30:000:30:02

And, oh, boy, did he make a name for himself.

0:30:020:30:04

Well, no disrespect, but these bottles,

0:30:040:30:06

they're quite utilitarian, aren't they?

0:30:060:30:09

They're there to do a job.

0:30:090:30:10

Erm, mine, I'd like to say, are out there to impress.

0:30:100:30:15

I had you in mind because, from the point of view of display,

0:30:150:30:20

it really doesn't get any better than those three bottles.

0:30:200:30:25

So, they all date to within a few years of one another.

0:30:250:30:30

This one, I know, is 1887.

0:30:300:30:32

As for the actual makers, one cannot be absolutely certain,

0:30:320:30:36

but the glass cutters here

0:30:360:30:38

are almost certainly working in Stourbridge.

0:30:380:30:41

Erm, and that was where, you know,

0:30:410:30:44

some of the best cut glass in the world was ever made.

0:30:440:30:47

And when we're talking about glass,

0:30:470:30:49

you're really talking about lead crystal.

0:30:490:30:51

-They're the best of English.

-Best of English.

-Yes.

-Wow.

0:30:510:30:55

So, my question is,

0:30:550:30:58

do you think they're going to be of interest to your perfume house?

0:30:580:31:01

They might possibly be.

0:31:010:31:03

Well, I take the "might"

0:31:030:31:06

as leading to "all depending on the price".

0:31:060:31:09

If I started at 350, where do you think you might be coming in at?

0:31:090:31:13

Ooh, 350?

0:31:130:31:15

Maybe 200, 250?

0:31:150:31:18

Erm, if we get...

0:31:190:31:22

Do you think if we got nearer the three

0:31:220:31:24

that we might be able to talk turkey, as they say?

0:31:240:31:27

I think we could. 280. 300.

0:31:270:31:29

-I could...I could possibly stretch.

-I like the three.

0:31:290:31:33

So, if we could do a 300 on those three bottles,

0:31:330:31:35

we've got ourselves a deal.

0:31:350:31:37

-OK, deal.

-Put it there.

0:31:370:31:39

Excellent. Fantastic.

0:31:390:31:41

Incredible. It appears three is the magic number.

0:31:410:31:44

And with that one sale, Eric pops a mighty £150 into his pot.

0:31:440:31:49

Well, yes, I doubled my money,

0:31:510:31:53

but those bottles were worth every penny.

0:31:530:31:56

Our dealers are now tied on two sales each,

0:31:580:32:00

but eager to get ahead,

0:32:000:32:02

Danny's not had time to polish his brass sprayer,

0:32:020:32:05

so keen is he to sell it to antiques dealer John in Rossendale.

0:32:050:32:09

-I was hoping for 25.

-Hey, I think I'll take that deal.

0:32:090:32:12

There's a lot of elbow grease needed to bring that up to shine.

0:32:120:32:16

That sale earns Danny just £9 profit,

0:32:160:32:19

and with that, we reach the halfway mark

0:32:190:32:21

of our selling stage.

0:32:210:32:22

It's time to find out who's conquering Everest

0:32:220:32:25

and who's clinging to the precipice,

0:32:250:32:27

so let's take a look at the scoreboard.

0:32:270:32:29

So far, Eric has sold two of his five items

0:32:310:32:34

and made an impressive £182.

0:32:340:32:38

Danny, however, has sold three of his five,

0:32:380:32:41

but banked just £44.

0:32:410:32:44

So, Knowledge Knowles is king of the cash flow at the moment

0:32:440:32:47

and showing no signs of wobbling on his selling adventure.

0:32:470:32:51

Yes, it's no trifling matter for Eric

0:32:510:32:53

as he hotfoots it to a pottery and painting cafe.

0:32:530:32:56

Well, I'm in an very windy Amersham on the Hill,

0:32:560:32:58

in leafy Buckinghamshire.

0:32:580:33:00

I'm here to meet Carrie.

0:33:000:33:02

Now, she runs a place where children can have an encounter

0:33:020:33:05

of the ceramic kind.

0:33:050:33:08

Ooh, this sounds like the perfect place

0:33:080:33:10

for a young Eric Knowles wannabe.

0:33:100:33:12

Remember, his jelly mould cost him £8.

0:33:120:33:15

Hello, Carrie.

0:33:150:33:16

-Hello. Lovely to meet you.

-And you too.

-Thank you.

0:33:160:33:19

Do you ever, bearing in mind that a lot of your clientele

0:33:190:33:23

-are of a sort of limited size...

-SHE LAUGHS

0:33:230:33:26

-The little ones.

-..do you ever offer them

0:33:260:33:28

jelly and blancmange at any stage?

0:33:280:33:30

Pizzas, cakes, blancmanges, jellies -

0:33:300:33:32

-everything is welcome in here.

-Oh, excellent.

0:33:320:33:34

-You could, if we can do business...

-Mm-hm.

0:33:340:33:37

..actually offer the service of actually moulding your jelly

0:33:370:33:41

-and moulding your blancmange if...

-SHE GASPS

0:33:410:33:44

..if you go with one Victorian jelly mould.

0:33:440:33:47

So, listen, we're both kindred spirits

0:33:470:33:49

-cos, you know, you know me - I'm a pottery man.

-Absolutely.

0:33:490:33:52

-I mean, it's a tactile thing.

-It is. It's quite weighty, isn't it?

-It is.

0:33:520:33:56

-And this is the date. Look, it's actually 11/87.

-Oh, right.

0:33:560:34:01

So, that pot was made in November 1887

0:34:010:34:04

when children would have been eating jelly and blancmange

0:34:040:34:08

to actually celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee.

0:34:080:34:13

Of course, yes.

0:34:130:34:15

-Well, there it is.

-How much?

-I'm open to offers.

0:34:150:34:17

Well, I thought maybe around about...

0:34:170:34:21

-..£25, something like that.

-Ooh.

0:34:220:34:25

What's the budget going to stretch to? Come on.

0:34:250:34:27

Would you take 20 for it?

0:34:270:34:29

I would because, you see, I've bonded with you...

0:34:300:34:32

-Oh, thank you.

-..as a pottery person. £20.

0:34:320:34:36

-Wonderful.

-Yeah.

-Thank you.

-That's the best £20...

0:34:360:34:39

-There we go.

-..you're going to spend on a pot, OK?

-Indeed.

0:34:390:34:41

We'll have to see what my jellies turn out like.

0:34:410:34:43

Well, it's in perfect working order.

0:34:430:34:45

So, Eric closes a sweet deal

0:34:450:34:47

as he finds the perfect fit for his jelly mould

0:34:470:34:49

and takes £12 into custody.

0:34:490:34:52

Well, that was a good sell in every sense

0:34:550:34:57

because I don't live too far away from here

0:34:570:35:01

and the minute I know that they've got blancmange on the menu,

0:35:010:35:06

I'll be in there like a flash.

0:35:060:35:08

Well, while Eric's got pudding as well as profit on the brain,

0:35:080:35:11

Del Boy needs to pick up the pace and get selling.

0:35:110:35:14

He might be down on cash, but he's far from out,

0:35:140:35:17

as he trucks on with his treasure.

0:35:170:35:20

I'm in Bacup. I've come to see Paul at his vintage shop.

0:35:200:35:23

I've brought along my Vertigo poster.

0:35:230:35:26

Let's just hope he doesn't start going all dizzy

0:35:260:35:28

when I give him the prize.

0:35:280:35:30

Hmm. Danny paid £55 for this cult classic.

0:35:300:35:34

Always a pleasure. I've brought this lovely Vertigo poster for you.

0:35:340:35:38

-Is it something that...?

-Never mind about the pitter-patter. Crack on.

0:35:380:35:42

That's what I like about Northern folks -

0:35:420:35:44

they don't muck about, they're straight in at the jugular.

0:35:440:35:47

Yes, it seems there's no messing about with Paul,

0:35:470:35:50

but will he go psycho at Danny's asking price?

0:35:500:35:53

I was hoping to get about 100, 110 -

0:35:530:35:56

that sort of figure - for it, really.

0:35:560:35:58

No. Not 110.

0:35:590:36:03

How about 100, then?

0:36:030:36:04

HE SIGHS

0:36:050:36:07

Still a no. I can tell. I see that great, big huff and puff

0:36:070:36:11

and that breath you took before you...

0:36:110:36:15

Right, I'll hit you with a figure. 75.

0:36:150:36:17

I did want a little bit more than that, Paul, really.

0:36:200:36:23

Won't be much more, but go on.

0:36:230:36:26

-Could you do 90?

-No, but can meet you halfway at 80.

0:36:260:36:31

-You know what, Paul? I'll have a deal at that.

-Thank you very much.

0:36:310:36:34

-Yeah, thank you very much.

-Cheers. Thank you.

-Enjoy it.

0:36:340:36:37

So, Paul was the man who knew too much

0:36:370:36:39

and showed Danny the rear window

0:36:390:36:42

with a profit of £25.

0:36:420:36:44

Now, with Del Boy on four sales to Eric's three,

0:36:450:36:49

The Knowledge swiftly levels the scores in Lincolnshire

0:36:490:36:52

as he sells his Welsh pinny to arts and crafts hobbyist Pauline

0:36:520:36:56

for an incredible £40, netting a healthy profit of £35.

0:36:560:37:01

He then heads to Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire with his final item.

0:37:010:37:06

Now, this is something of a mecca

0:37:060:37:09

for the golfing fraternity in this part of the world

0:37:090:37:12

and I'm here to fraternise

0:37:120:37:14

in the hope that I'm going to find a permanent home on the 18th green

0:37:140:37:20

for my Royal Doulton golfer.

0:37:200:37:23

Very swish indeed, Mr Knowles.

0:37:230:37:26

He's meeting food and beverage manager Tariq

0:37:260:37:29

with a golfing tankard that cost £20.

0:37:290:37:31

-Hello. Tariq, yes?

-Good afternoon, Eric.

0:37:330:37:36

-Hello. Lovely to meet you.

-How are you? Nice to see you.

0:37:360:37:38

The golf club itself, I mean,

0:37:380:37:40

how many members are we talking about there?

0:37:400:37:42

Well, we're talking about 4,000 members now.

0:37:420:37:44

Well, I'm hoping to make it 4,001 members,

0:37:440:37:47

although, in this case, he's inanimate,

0:37:470:37:50

-so he's not going to be crowding the green.

-Fantastic.

0:37:500:37:53

But this is my Royal Doulton character jug

0:37:530:37:57

and they don't make them any more.

0:37:570:37:59

I just thing that he would look quite resplendent in your clubhouse.

0:37:590:38:03

This is absolutely fantastic.

0:38:030:38:04

As you know, we've got a lot of character around the building

0:38:040:38:08

and I think I know just the place where he can go, actually.

0:38:080:38:11

So, the only thing we have to discuss is his green fees, don't we?

0:38:110:38:14

Oh, yes, I think we're going to have to negotiate about that one.

0:38:140:38:17

-OK.

-It is a great piece, I'll give you that much. 37.50?

0:38:170:38:22

I'll go to, and I think my standing place,

0:38:220:38:25

-will be £39.

-£39?

-£39.

0:38:250:38:28

-Excellent.

-There it is.

-£39 it is.

-OK.

-Fantastic.

0:38:280:38:31

Champion, as they say up north.

0:38:310:38:33

Ooh, champion.

0:38:330:38:34

Eric sinks a profit of £19 on this old pro

0:38:340:38:38

and he thinks it's a very fitting home.

0:38:380:38:40

Thank you very much. Thank you.

0:38:400:38:42

Well, I reckon I've done the old golfer a bit of a favour

0:38:420:38:46

cos let's face it, he's going to spend the rest of his days

0:38:460:38:49

in palatial splendour.

0:38:490:38:52

And that marks the end of Eric's pitch for profit,

0:38:520:38:55

as he's all sold up.

0:38:550:38:57

Danny is still on the road

0:38:570:38:59

and heading to Bedfordshire with his final item in hand -

0:38:590:39:02

his turn-of-the-century carriage foot warmer that cost him £35.

0:39:020:39:06

He's behind in the profits game,

0:39:060:39:08

so will Liz, the co-owner of a carriage hire company,

0:39:080:39:12

help him trot to a lead?

0:39:120:39:14

Hopefully, there's a place for my foot warmer

0:39:150:39:17

somewhere in this carriage hall.

0:39:170:39:20

I mean, where would it normally sit?

0:39:200:39:23

It'd be for the customer. Normally, the ladies.

0:39:230:39:26

And it would sit on the floor is here.

0:39:260:39:28

-Then in this particular carriage...

-Sit on the floor. Yes.

0:39:280:39:30

..you could pull the apron up and that would help keep the heat in.

0:39:300:39:33

Keep the legs warm, keep the ankles warm

0:39:330:39:35

-when your feet are getting warm with the warmer.

-Yeah.

0:39:350:39:37

-I've brought this to the right place.

-You have, yes.

0:39:370:39:40

What sort of money are you talking?

0:39:400:39:42

Well, I was thinking in the region of...

0:39:420:39:45

It's very decorative. It's a nice thing.

0:39:450:39:47

The handle's got this little... It's all there.

0:39:470:39:50

-I was thinking about £95.

-SHE GASPS

0:39:500:39:52

-How much?

-£95.

-Oh, no, I think that's quite expensive.

0:39:520:39:57

What sort of price were you thinking, Liz?

0:39:570:39:59

I was thinking more 60.

0:39:590:40:00

Ooh, Liz. Cor, you've knocked 30% off straightaway over that.

0:40:000:40:04

-SHE CHUCKLES

-You're a hard lady.

0:40:040:40:06

-I am a hard lady.

-I knew you were a hard worker,

0:40:060:40:09

but I didn't think you were a hard lady to go alongside it.

0:40:090:40:12

How about...

0:40:120:40:14

-..75?

-70.

0:40:150:40:18

-Deal.

-OK.

0:40:180:40:20

Yes, Liz was a tough negotiator,

0:40:200:40:22

but everyone knows never look a gift horse in the mouth,

0:40:220:40:25

as Danny ends the day with a profit of £35

0:40:250:40:28

and all sold up, he's only too happy to enjoy some horseplay.

0:40:280:40:33

Who wants a big, modern car

0:40:340:40:36

when you've got a beautiful horse and carriage to ride in?

0:40:360:40:39

-Makes me want to get married.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:40:390:40:42

And with that, our dealers' road trip for riches is at an end.

0:40:440:40:48

It's time to see who's whipped up a storm of wealth

0:40:480:40:51

and who's made a piddling profit.

0:40:510:40:53

Before that, let's remind ourselves of how much our dealers have spent.

0:40:530:40:57

Both our dealers started the day with £250 to play with.

0:40:580:41:02

Eric was the big spender, pocketing five items costing £191.

0:41:020:41:08

Danny also picked up five purchases, but spent just £123.

0:41:080:41:13

All that matters now is profit.

0:41:130:41:15

All of the money that Danny and Eric have made today

0:41:150:41:18

will go to the charities of their choice,

0:41:180:41:20

so, without further ado, let's find out who is today's

0:41:200:41:23

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

0:41:230:41:26

-How are you doing?

-Not so bad. How are you?

0:41:260:41:28

-HE CHUCKLES

-What about car boots?

0:41:280:41:30

I mean, you start virtually in darkness, don't you?

0:41:300:41:33

And you're there when the sun comes up.

0:41:330:41:35

It's quite romantic, in a sort of strange way.

0:41:350:41:37

Well, that depends if you're going looking or if you're going working.

0:41:370:41:40

Yeah, we were working that day, weren't we?

0:41:400:41:42

We were working and it was a hard slog.

0:41:420:41:44

Despite all that slogging, how did you get on? What was your best buy?

0:41:440:41:48

Well, my best buy would have been my foot warmer.

0:41:480:41:51

-I've sold it to a person who's got a carriage hire company.

-Oh, right.

0:41:510:41:54

So, I went out for a ride and a cloppety-clop

0:41:540:41:57

and all the rest of it. Very nice.

0:41:570:41:59

-Fair bit of profit as well.

-Good.

0:41:590:42:01

-What was your favourite piece?

-Do you know what?

0:42:010:42:03

I think it was probably my copper warming pan, you know,

0:42:030:42:07

because I managed to repatriate it

0:42:070:42:09

to a 17th-century sort of coaching inn near where I live.

0:42:090:42:12

Well, seems all like good fun.

0:42:120:42:14

-It was and it's all in the selling, isn't it?

-It's all in the case.

0:42:140:42:18

-So, shall we...?

-Shall we have a look? Yes, why not.

0:42:180:42:21

-Are you ready?

-I'm ready.

-OK.

0:42:210:42:24

-ERIC CHUCKLES

-Eric, you've well beat me this time.

0:42:250:42:28

I knew it was hard, but I didn't think it was that hard.

0:42:280:42:31

-Well spotted, those perfume bottles.

-Hey, somebody's got to win.

0:42:310:42:35

Somebody's got to win.

0:42:350:42:37

Yes, Eric The Knowledge Knowles is today's king of the collectables,

0:42:370:42:40

slingshotting his way past his opponent

0:42:400:42:43

to take a comfortable victory.

0:42:430:42:45

Well, it was a win and without wishing to gloat,

0:42:450:42:47

it was a convincing win,

0:42:470:42:49

but I think it was the sweet smell of success

0:42:490:42:52

provided by my three perfume bottles that won the day.

0:42:520:42:56

I don't believe it.

0:42:560:42:57

Car boot's my territory and I got thrashed.

0:42:570:43:00

Don't you worry. There's still a bit of life left in me yet.

0:43:000:43:03

Yes, Danny gets another pop at the prize tomorrow

0:43:030:43:06

when he and Eric head to an auction in Somerset.

0:43:060:43:10

I know who's bidding against me. Del Boy running me up.

0:43:100:43:15

Danny 'Delboy' Sebastian takes on Eric 'The Knowledge' Knowles at a car boot sale in Essex. Their biggest challenge is the weather, as rain hampers play - and means that antiques-loving Eric has to chance his arm with some questionable bric-a-brac!
