This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,

0:00:020:00:04

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

0:00:040:00:07

each other in a all-out battle for profit.

0:00:070:00:10

I think I see a bargain.

0:00:100:00:11

Each day, one pair of duelling dealers will face

0:00:130:00:15

a mighty challenge.

0:00:150:00:16

Oh yeah!

0:00:160:00:17

Putting their reputations on the line.

0:00:170:00:20

Ready for battle.

0:00:200:00:22

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

0:00:220:00:25

I'm a big boy. I'm a player.

0:00:250:00:27

..along with their top tips and savvy secrets...

0:00:270:00:29

It's not all about what you spend. It is about what you make.

0:00:290:00:32

..showing you how to make the most money...

0:00:320:00:35

It really is war.

0:00:350:00:36

..from buying and selling.

0:00:360:00:38

You've got to be in there like a whippet.

0:00:380:00:40

Coming up, Kate brings a stallholder down to earth.

0:00:420:00:46

Er, I'm thinking about 150.

0:00:460:00:48

Oh! I do need to sit down.

0:00:480:00:50

Caroline's knowledge is right up to date.

0:00:510:00:54

All these numbers in the corners will date this to the very day of

0:00:540:00:58

the month of the year of registration of this pattern.

0:00:580:01:01

And Kate's got a lot of bottle when it comes to selling.

0:01:010:01:05

How does 380 sound?

0:01:050:01:07

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:01:070:01:10

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Surrey, where two of our top

0:01:240:01:28

antiques players are limbering up for an on-court battle to secure

0:01:280:01:32

the silverware and make the most profit.

0:01:320:01:34

First out, she's a cunning competitor with a love of spin,

0:01:360:01:39

always has her eye on the ball, and can cover a court of

0:01:390:01:42

collectables in a flash.

0:01:420:01:44

It's Kate "Absolute" Bliss.

0:01:440:01:46

No rest for the wicked. I'd better get a shift on.

0:01:480:01:50

Kate's against an outstanding opponent in crisp whites,

0:01:510:01:55

who can fire off a volley of deals...

0:01:550:01:58

Do you know, I do like doorknobs.

0:01:580:01:59

..and won't hesitate to use a backhand move.

0:01:590:02:02

I'm fighting fit and ready to go.

0:02:020:02:05

It's Caroline "The Hawk" Hawley.

0:02:050:02:08

Today, they're grappling on grass

0:02:090:02:11

at the Decorative Home and Salvage Show in Surrey.

0:02:110:02:14

They have £750 of their own money to spend on items to sell on,

0:02:140:02:18

with all the profits going to their chosen charities.

0:02:180:02:21

So, who will be serving for the set and whose racquets

0:02:210:02:25

will be coming unstrung?

0:02:250:02:28

-Hi, Kate.

-Hey! There you are! Good to see you!

0:02:280:02:31

-What do you think of it?

-It's great. I've never been here before.

0:02:310:02:33

No, I haven't either.

0:02:330:02:35

It's got a sort of a French feel about it, I think.

0:02:350:02:37

I know we're in Guildford.

0:02:370:02:39

It is a bit interior decorator stuff, isn't it?

0:02:390:02:41

-It is.

-Right up your street!

0:02:410:02:43

-I think it is going to be a bit expensive.

-Do you?

0:02:430:02:45

There are some stalls that look very, sort of, high-end retail.

0:02:450:02:48

-Well, we've got, what, £750?

-Yes.

-Which is quite a lot.

-Yeah.

0:02:480:02:52

-Yeah, what are you going to be looking for?

-Well, not sure exactly,

0:02:520:02:55

-but, erm, you'll have to wait and see, won't you!

-Oooh!

0:02:550:02:58

-We'd better get going, then.

-We had!

0:02:590:03:01

So, Caroline's giving nothing away to Kate,

0:03:020:03:05

but what is her big match gameplan?

0:03:050:03:07

Well, this is a wonderful fair.

0:03:070:03:10

It's very small, but it's full of unusual items.

0:03:100:03:14

I'm not going to struggle today and I'm going to get something

0:03:140:03:17

a little bit interesting.

0:03:170:03:19

So, Caroline's playing on her preferred surface,

0:03:190:03:22

and Kate knows she's going to be on the back foot.

0:03:220:03:25

Well, I have had a bit of a sniff about here this morning,

0:03:250:03:27

and this fair's got a lovely French brocante feel to it.

0:03:270:03:31

But, unfortunately for me, that's going to put Caroline

0:03:310:03:34

right in her comfort zone.

0:03:340:03:35

It's just her kind of thing.

0:03:350:03:37

So, I've got to go up a gear.

0:03:370:03:39

I want to buy quality and I can't hang about.

0:03:390:03:42

Oh, morning.

0:03:420:03:44

Well, it seems to be advantage Miss Hawley on this one,

0:03:440:03:47

and straightaway she spots something she likes.

0:03:470:03:50

How much is your lovely cartwheel?

0:03:500:03:52

-110.

-110?

0:03:520:03:54

On this wonderful day in Loseley, how low could you go?

0:03:550:04:00

It would depend on what you would offer.

0:04:000:04:02

It's a big one, isn't it?

0:04:020:04:04

It is a very big one.

0:04:040:04:05

-Make me an offer.

-60-ish.

0:04:050:04:07

We can meet a bit closer from 110 to 60.

0:04:080:04:11

50?

0:04:110:04:13

That's the wrong way, isn't it?

0:04:130:04:15

Nice try, Caroline.

0:04:150:04:16

65?

0:04:160:04:18

I was thinking my final price would be 75.

0:04:180:04:22

70 and you've got yourself a deal.

0:04:220:04:24

And I've got myself a wheel.

0:04:240:04:25

You're a cheeky monkey, you are!

0:04:250:04:27

And you're a wheeler dealer.

0:04:270:04:29

Only if you pay me now.

0:04:290:04:30

I'll pay you now, sir.

0:04:300:04:32

-Thank you. It's a deal.

-Cheers, thank you very much.

0:04:320:04:35

And it's 15-0 to Caroline with her late 19th-century piece.

0:04:360:04:40

Well, I'm absolutely delighted with my first very quick purchase

0:04:400:04:44

of this French wheel.

0:04:440:04:46

It's in good, original condition.

0:04:460:04:48

The size is great.

0:04:480:04:49

It's exactly what I want.

0:04:490:04:51

The seller told me he bought this in France

0:04:510:04:54

and I can just imagine this with its other wheel

0:04:540:04:57

and the chariot in the middle.

0:04:570:04:59

It really is a lovely thing.

0:04:590:05:02

It's going to go downhill now - I can see I've peaked too early!

0:05:020:05:05

Stay confident, Caroline. You've already got your rival in a sweat.

0:05:050:05:09

Now, I've made my way down this main drag of the fair,

0:05:110:05:14

and I haven't seen Caroline at all -

0:05:140:05:16

which is slightly concerning me.

0:05:160:05:18

Has she found a really good stall right down there?

0:05:180:05:21

I think I'd better go and check it out.

0:05:210:05:24

It seems Kate is rather rattled.

0:05:240:05:26

Where is she?

0:05:260:05:28

But it's not long before she spots something she likes.

0:05:280:05:32

You haven't got another one of those, have you?

0:05:340:05:36

No, just the one, I'm afraid.

0:05:360:05:38

Bedside tables like this are great, and really quite commercial,

0:05:380:05:42

but it's always nice to have a matching pair.

0:05:420:05:45

So, one on its own, I'd probably be a bit conservative about.

0:05:450:05:48

This one has got a really nice breccia marble top.

0:05:480:05:52

It's got a good, red colour.

0:05:520:05:54

So, what's the best price on that, madam?

0:05:540:05:56

I could probably do 65.

0:05:560:05:58

Hmm.

0:05:580:06:00

You couldn't do 45?

0:06:000:06:02

Just for me?

0:06:020:06:03

I could probably go down another ten to 55.

0:06:030:06:05

I do like a round figure. You couldn't say 50 and I'll meet you?

0:06:070:06:10

-Go on, then, 50. Yeah.

-Done.

0:06:100:06:11

-Great, thank you.

-Thank you very much.

0:06:110:06:13

Lovely.

0:06:130:06:15

Brilliant. I'm up and running.

0:06:150:06:17

And I think this is a really nice, tidy first piece.

0:06:170:06:20

The important thing when you look at marble-topped pieces is

0:06:200:06:23

that there aren't any bad cracks or chips,

0:06:230:06:26

cos that just puts people off.

0:06:260:06:29

But, actually, it looks really nice.

0:06:290:06:32

And then a painted base, which is just a little bit worn,

0:06:320:06:35

which is how people like them these days.

0:06:350:06:37

So, a little bit of wear to the front here.

0:06:370:06:40

I would say it's probably early part of the 20th century.

0:06:400:06:43

So, quite commercial.

0:06:430:06:45

It is, actually, a bedside piece, a bedside cabinet,

0:06:450:06:48

but with the marble top, you could actually put it in a kitchen.

0:06:480:06:52

Our sporting ladies are at one-all.

0:06:530:06:55

But, hang on, Kate's still on court.

0:06:550:06:57

Is she going for a second service?

0:06:570:06:59

Just as I was leaving the stall, something else has caught my eye.

0:06:590:07:03

Come on.

0:07:030:07:04

I quite like your ladder. Would you say it's an apple ladder?

0:07:050:07:08

-Yes, I would.

-It's what I would call an apple ladder.

-Yeah.

0:07:080:07:11

So, what are you looking for, for that?

0:07:110:07:13

Erm, I'm open to offers. Why don't you...

0:07:140:07:15

Are you, now? I'm going to be super cheeky.

0:07:150:07:18

Would you do a fiver?

0:07:180:07:19

Ooh, that is cheeky.

0:07:190:07:20

-No. No way.

-What would you do?

0:07:200:07:22

Er, well, for you, 20.

0:07:220:07:24

I'm thinking a tenner and I'll meet you in the middle.

0:07:240:07:26

How about 15?

0:07:260:07:28

Oh, you're killing me.

0:07:280:07:29

Yeah, I know.

0:07:290:07:30

What about a cheeky 12?

0:07:300:07:31

Go on, then. Let's do a cheeky 12.

0:07:310:07:33

Fantastic.

0:07:330:07:35

So, that's a brace of aces from the athletic Miss Bliss.

0:07:350:07:38

They don't make them like this any more.

0:07:380:07:40

The construction of it is actually quite detailed.

0:07:400:07:43

You can see where the rungs go through the main posts each side.

0:07:430:07:48

You can see, in the vulnerable places, like at the top and

0:07:480:07:52

at the bottom, we've got metal bars,

0:07:520:07:54

just to strengthen it against damage.

0:07:540:07:57

It's got a lovely weathered look to it,

0:07:570:07:59

so it's quite difficult to date,

0:07:590:08:01

but I would probably put it at sort of 1930s, maybe 1940s.

0:08:010:08:05

Now, back home in Herefordshire, the country is covered in

0:08:050:08:09

apple orchards, and this is exactly where I'm going to take this.

0:08:090:08:12

So, despite a jittery start, Kate is now queen of the court.

0:08:120:08:16

Caroline is finding it difficult to return serve,

0:08:160:08:19

with high prices putting her off her game.

0:08:190:08:22

How much is your bench?

0:08:220:08:24

450?

0:08:240:08:25

How much is your boat?

0:08:280:08:29

475.

0:08:290:08:30

475.

0:08:300:08:31

That is gorgeous. Thank you.

0:08:330:08:35

MUSIC: Walk On By by Diana Ross

0:08:360:08:37

But there's no such leisurely browsing for Miss Bliss.

0:08:430:08:46

She's 2-1 up and far from done,

0:08:460:08:48

paying £40 for this butler's table and adding item number three

0:08:480:08:52

to her ever-increasing haul.

0:08:520:08:54

So, this carved, bamboo-like structure at the bottom really dates

0:08:540:08:58

it, sort of early Edwardian, I would say.

0:08:580:09:01

And if you look underneath, you've got the woven straps here.

0:09:010:09:06

You can see straightaway, it's not a modern piece.

0:09:060:09:08

Now, I think I'd like to try and get a little bit more colour and patina

0:09:080:09:12

into the top. Elbow grease, that's what it needs.

0:09:120:09:15

But it's certainly got potential.

0:09:150:09:17

Nice one, Jeeves.

0:09:170:09:19

Trailing behind and keen to feather her nest with more purchases,

0:09:190:09:22

The Hawk has spotted something that could help her game soar.

0:09:220:09:26

CELESTIAL MUSIC

0:09:260:09:27

-Hello.

-Hi.

0:09:270:09:29

How much are your angel wings, please?

0:09:290:09:32

I had 65 on them.

0:09:320:09:33

I can do about 50 now.

0:09:330:09:35

They've just come out of Bruges last weekend.

0:09:350:09:37

Did they fly over?

0:09:370:09:38

No, I brought them!

0:09:380:09:40

There's a little bit of discolouration on one of the

0:09:400:09:43

feathers, I've seen.

0:09:430:09:44

Is it otherwise in fairly good order?

0:09:440:09:46

In quite good order, yes, they are, actually.

0:09:460:09:48

I think they have been a stage prop at some time, so...

0:09:480:09:50

But they're just a bit of fun.

0:09:500:09:51

They are. I like a bit of fun.

0:09:510:09:53

What is the very best you could do on them?

0:09:530:09:56

It has got to be 50, I'm afraid.

0:09:560:09:57

-Go on, I'll have those at 50.

-OK?

-Thank you.

0:09:570:10:00

Well, she said she was going to buy something interesting,

0:10:000:10:03

but this is positively out of this world.

0:10:030:10:06

How gorgeous are these angel wings?

0:10:060:10:10

It's swan's-down and these lovely feathers. I would say they're '40s.

0:10:100:10:14

I mean, this sort of, it's almost seersucker ribbon,

0:10:140:10:17

that's very indicative of that period, and I don't think I'm going

0:10:170:10:21

to have any difficulty finding a home for them.

0:10:210:10:24

Well, after that heavenly volley, Caroline comes back down to earth

0:10:240:10:27

with a purchase of a cast-iron brolly-and-stick stand for £130.

0:10:270:10:33

I've just broken my mould.

0:10:330:10:35

I've bought something English for the first time this fair.

0:10:350:10:39

This is English cast iron.

0:10:390:10:42

As far as I can see there is no maker's mark on it,

0:10:420:10:44

but if we turn it round, this is how I know the age of it.

0:10:440:10:48

There are so many reproductions about.

0:10:480:10:51

First of all, pick it up.

0:10:510:10:52

This is really heavy.

0:10:520:10:54

And a more precise way of telling,

0:10:540:10:56

this registration lozenge on the back was used between 1843 and 1883.

0:10:560:11:02

And all these numbers in the corners will date this to the very day of

0:11:030:11:08

the month of the year of registration of this pattern,

0:11:080:11:12

and I would say this is mid-19th century,

0:11:120:11:15

but we'll have a look when I get it home.

0:11:150:11:18

And with that crosscourt shot from Caroline,

0:11:180:11:20

we've reached the halfway point.

0:11:200:11:22

Time for a swig of barley water and an action replay of what

0:11:220:11:25

they've spent so far.

0:11:250:11:26

From a budget of £750, Kate has made three purchases

0:11:280:11:32

and spent £102, leaving her with £648 in her kitty.

0:11:320:11:37

Caroline has also made three purchases and spent £250,

0:11:390:11:42

meaning she has £500 left in her pot.

0:11:420:11:45

Hey, I've been looking for you everywhere!

0:11:460:11:48

Now, they didn't have chocolate chip, so I got you Eton mess.

0:11:480:11:51

-I thought it's got to be a winner.

-Thank you. I don't know if I should take this, you know.

0:11:510:11:54

-You're trying to butter me up, aren't you?

-What, me?

0:11:540:11:56

-I'll take it anyway.

-I need to slow you down.

0:11:560:11:59

Cool you down, anyway.

0:11:590:12:00

-So, what do you think of it, then?

-I love it. I knew I would, though.

0:12:000:12:03

-Loads of French things.

-I know.

-I've only bought one English thing.

0:12:030:12:05

-Have you?

-Yeah.

-You've gone very French.

0:12:050:12:07

What have I bought? Yeah, a little bit of both, actually.

0:12:070:12:10

-Have you?

-Yeah.

0:12:100:12:11

Have you bought big or small?

0:12:110:12:12

-A bit of both.

-And how are you finding the prices?

0:12:120:12:15

-OK.

-This is worrying.

0:12:160:12:17

You must have gone off like a rocket, though.

0:12:170:12:19

-I couldn't find you anywhere.

-I did, I did,

0:12:190:12:21

I only do one speed and that's fast.

0:12:210:12:22

Yeah. Well, it sounds like I've got some time to make up.

0:12:220:12:26

Oh, well, thanks for this, Kate.

0:12:260:12:27

That's all right - you owe me one.

0:12:270:12:29

So, after ice cream stopped play,

0:12:310:12:33

both our antiques athletes are back out on court,

0:12:330:12:36

and Caroline's ready to deliver a big serve.

0:12:360:12:39

Well, thanks for that lovely ice cream, Kate,

0:12:390:12:41

but it won't slow me up.

0:12:410:12:42

I need to get on with my buying.

0:12:420:12:44

Caroline is on the offensive,

0:12:450:12:46

and Absolute Bliss needs to up her game.

0:12:460:12:50

I have to say, Caroline looked quite confident,

0:12:500:12:52

and my instinct was right, she's buying French.

0:12:520:12:55

Well, it looks like I've got a fight on my hands - better press on.

0:12:550:12:59

Ooh, racquets at the ready.

0:12:590:13:01

But it's Caroline who's first up,

0:13:010:13:03

and she does well to spot this vintage bike

0:13:030:13:05

amongst the other knick-knacks.

0:13:050:13:07

I think it's probably 1960s.

0:13:070:13:10

It looks '60s, it really does,

0:13:100:13:12

and it's got the nice, red, Michelin tyres.

0:13:120:13:14

-And has it got its toolkit in here, you say?

-Yes.

0:13:140:13:17

Yeah, there's a toolkit still in one of the panniers.

0:13:170:13:19

What's the best you could do on that?

0:13:190:13:21

I usually trade them at £60.

0:13:210:13:23

-Do you?

-Yeah.

0:13:230:13:24

It's the thing to be seen on, isn't it?

0:13:240:13:26

-Sunday morning, going down to the shop?

-Is it?

-Yeah.

0:13:260:13:29

I'll give you £50.

0:13:290:13:32

-I'll do that.

-Thank you!

-Thank you very much.

0:13:320:13:34

Canny Caroline gets a tenner off the asking price

0:13:340:13:37

and freewheels into the lead.

0:13:370:13:39

Look at my bike.

0:13:390:13:41

French, barn find, the seller told me.

0:13:410:13:45

The saddle looks a little bit hard, but it's an original leather saddle.

0:13:450:13:50

Bikes are really, really fashionable and I think, with a little bit

0:13:500:13:54

of TLC, this could be ridden away tomorrow.

0:13:540:13:58

Now at 4-3 up, Caroline is leading in this very French open,

0:13:580:14:03

but across the field, Kate is now interested in a German player.

0:14:030:14:07

Can I ask about the table and chair set?

0:14:070:14:09

Yes, they're Bierkeller sets from a German beer hall.

0:14:090:14:12

"Partner von Farny. Getranke Rist?"

0:14:120:14:16

"Getranke" is something to do with drink, isn't it?

0:14:160:14:19

-Oh, you've got another one over there?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:14:190:14:21

So, they're not rare, then?

0:14:210:14:23

What's your very best to take one off your hands?

0:14:250:14:27

120.

0:14:270:14:29

I'm thinking more, sort of...

0:14:290:14:30

-75.

-No.

0:14:310:14:33

-No?

-Cost me more.

0:14:330:14:34

What could you do to meet me?

0:14:350:14:37

If you took that one now, £100.

0:14:380:14:42

And that one?

0:14:440:14:45

£100.

0:14:450:14:46

HE CHUCKLES

0:14:460:14:47

90, final offer.

0:14:480:14:49

Five.

0:14:490:14:51

Done.

0:14:510:14:53

Yeah.

0:14:530:14:55

So, what do you think?

0:14:550:14:57

It's pretty basic, really.

0:14:570:14:58

It's almost industrial.

0:14:580:15:00

It could be 1950s, but it isn't.

0:15:000:15:03

In fact, it's probably less than 20 years old.

0:15:030:15:06

So, I can see myself perhaps selling this to a pub that's got

0:15:060:15:09

outdoor seating or any eatery, really.

0:15:090:15:12

Well, it's certainly no-frills,

0:15:120:15:14

but all I want is a plain, simple profit.

0:15:140:15:17

So, in this fast and furious game, we are at deuce,

0:15:170:15:21

with four buys apiece.

0:15:210:15:22

But The Hawk's eye has now landed on a garden item,

0:15:220:15:25

as she goes in for the killer shot.

0:15:250:15:28

Well, I've spotted your wheelbarrow.

0:15:280:15:30

-Yeah?

-I think it's rather gorgeous.

-Thank you.

0:15:300:15:33

Now, what is the price of that fine thing?

0:15:330:15:36

I could do 55.

0:15:360:15:38

-Would you go 40?

-45.

0:15:380:15:40

40, and it's a deal?

0:15:410:15:43

I'll wheel it away.

0:15:430:15:44

-Go on.

-Thank you.

-£40, cos you're so nice.

0:15:450:15:49

Thank you!

0:15:490:15:50

A good baseline shot as she charms a £15 discount

0:15:500:15:53

and rounds off her buying.

0:15:530:15:55

I've bought this lovely French child's wheelbarrow.

0:15:550:16:00

It's an absolute copy of an original adult version.

0:16:000:16:04

I would think it's sort of fairly early 20th century, maybe 1920s.

0:16:040:16:08

It's made in softwood.

0:16:080:16:09

Original paint on it.

0:16:090:16:11

With this metal-bound wooden wheel.

0:16:110:16:13

Very often they have been replaced and you get a sort of rubber wheel.

0:16:130:16:16

Not the same at all.

0:16:160:16:18

I think this is absolutely gorgeous, and I'm on the search

0:16:180:16:21

for my very own Mr McGregor's garden to put it in.

0:16:210:16:24

Our barrow girl has made her final purchase, and is retiring from play.

0:16:240:16:30

Well, I said I would buy interesting items, and I jolly well have.

0:16:300:16:33

If Kate's things are half as interesting,

0:16:330:16:35

we're going to have a competition on our hands.

0:16:350:16:37

Yeah, well, this is a contest, a fact that hasn't escaped Kate's notice.

0:16:390:16:44

She is sizing up something huge as her fifth potential buy.

0:16:440:16:48

-Hi there.

-Hi there.

-Tell me about your wine rack.

0:16:480:16:51

We bought all these in the Champagne region in Reims.

0:16:510:16:54

So is it for Champagne bottles?

0:16:540:16:56

It is a Champagne riddle rack.

0:16:560:16:58

-What are you looking for for it?

-We've been asking 250 on them.

0:16:580:17:01

But we're open to offers.

0:17:010:17:03

Are you, now?

0:17:030:17:04

What is your lowest you could do?

0:17:040:17:07

I could shave it down to closer to 200 if you're very keen.

0:17:070:17:10

-How far apart are we?

-Yeah, I'm thinking about 150.

0:17:120:17:16

I do need to sit down.

0:17:160:17:18

Maybe... Shall I get you some Champagne?

0:17:180:17:20

So if you say 150, and I say 250,

0:17:200:17:21

do you want to meet in the middle and we have a deal?

0:17:210:17:24

Let me have another look at it.

0:17:240:17:26

Come on, I know you like it.

0:17:260:17:27

Do you know, I really do like it.

0:17:270:17:30

You couldn't do 180, and that's right in the middle between us.

0:17:300:17:33

Oh, no, I've been shaved down too many times.

0:17:330:17:35

190, I can do.

0:17:350:17:36

Well, I'll tell you what, if I come up to 190,

0:17:360:17:38

could you throw in the bottles?

0:17:380:17:40

-Just sets it off nicely.

-It does, doesn't it?

0:17:400:17:42

Yeah. You can have those five - that's a deal, then.

0:17:420:17:44

-190.

-Thank you very much.

0:17:440:17:46

Thank you very much.

0:17:460:17:48

A tough match against a difficult player, as Kate shells out twice as

0:17:480:17:52

much for the rack and empty bottles as she has on any of her other items,

0:17:520:17:55

but she is delighted with her trophy.

0:17:550:17:58

It's known as a riddle rack because of the way it was used in the

0:17:590:18:02

Champagne-making industry.

0:18:020:18:04

Now, a worker in the factory would come along and he would have to turn

0:18:040:18:08

each of the bottles in many racks just like this, riddle it that way,

0:18:080:18:13

and then riddle it the other way,

0:18:130:18:15

basically to shake the sediment into the neck of the bottle.

0:18:150:18:18

We've got the stamp there, with France on it,

0:18:180:18:21

so we know it's come straight out of a Champagne factory.

0:18:210:18:24

Nowadays, all this process is mechanised, so that helps to date this.

0:18:240:18:29

Probably, I would say, to the mid-20th century.

0:18:290:18:31

Hopefully, by the end of the week, I'll be popping a cork.

0:18:310:18:35

Cheers to that.

0:18:350:18:36

So, Kate's buying comes to an end, and with the scores level,

0:18:370:18:40

our lady players head for the locker room.

0:18:400:18:42

But before they critique each other's ground strokes,

0:18:420:18:45

let's have a look at their total spend.

0:18:450:18:48

Both our dealers started with a £750 budget.

0:18:480:18:52

Kate bought five items and spent £387.

0:18:520:18:56

Caroline also bought five items costing slightly less at £340.

0:18:560:19:02

But before they head for home, it's time to peruse each other's purchases.

0:19:020:19:06

-Hi.

-Hey.

0:19:060:19:08

The end of a long day!

0:19:080:19:10

Oh, my gosh, yes, but what fun.

0:19:100:19:11

-Loved it.

-Really good fair.

-Yeah!

0:19:110:19:13

Just like being in a French market.

0:19:130:19:15

Well, obviously, the bedside cabinet is very French with that marble top. too.

0:19:150:19:18

And in good condition.

0:19:180:19:20

And what about my garish orange table and benches?

0:19:200:19:23

I don't love that, Kate, if I'm really honest.

0:19:230:19:27

Do you know what? I wouldn't buy it for me,

0:19:270:19:29

but it's quite trendy at the moment.

0:19:290:19:31

I think, yeah, it's a good colour, and it is a good sort of narrow size.

0:19:310:19:35

Yeah. And then this is my big chunk.

0:19:350:19:37

But again it's got a good look about it, hasn't it?

0:19:370:19:40

It has. Be nicer if the bottles were full.

0:19:400:19:42

Wouldn't it just?

0:19:420:19:44

What about yours?

0:19:440:19:45

Well, I've splashed out on this lovely pair of angel wings.

0:19:450:19:50

-Is that what they are?

-Yes.

-I don't know why, I was thinking Swan Lake.

0:19:500:19:53

I mean, it is a pair, is it, and you can put them on?

0:19:530:19:55

-Yes, oh, yes.

-The mind boggles!

0:19:550:19:57

-What about the wheel?

-The wheel's lovely, yes.

0:19:580:20:00

It's got a real look about it, hasn't it?

0:20:000:20:02

And a lot of people love these.

0:20:020:20:03

So, yeah, I think that's nice.

0:20:030:20:05

I liked it because it's slightly bigger than the average.

0:20:050:20:07

-You like bigger than the average!

-I do...!

0:20:070:20:09

Well, if that's a good thing.

0:20:090:20:11

-I think it is.

-And your little wheelbarrow I think is super cute.

0:20:110:20:14

I'll have to have to find a super cute mini-gardener for it, aren't I?

0:20:140:20:18

Yes!

0:20:180:20:19

Well, I don't know about you, but I could eat another ice cream.

0:20:190:20:22

-So could I.

-Could you?

0:20:220:20:23

Yeah, they're on me this time.

0:20:230:20:24

Heading home with their antiques fair fancies,

0:20:290:20:31

our rival English roses face the challenge of hunting down buyers

0:20:310:20:35

and selling on their gathered goodies,

0:20:350:20:37

making as much profit as they can for the charities of their choice.

0:20:370:20:42

Back at The Hawk's nest in East Yorkshire,

0:20:420:20:44

Caroline's collectables have a distinctly continental flavour.

0:20:440:20:48

So, I've been to an English antique fair, and what do I do?

0:20:490:20:53

Buy French items.

0:20:530:20:55

French bicycle, gorgeous seat, panniers, and do you know?

0:20:550:21:00

Some people collect just saddles or panniers.

0:21:000:21:04

But I've been in touch with quite a few bike cafe restaurant shops,

0:21:040:21:08

and I think this will be great as a display item.

0:21:080:21:12

The wheel, again French, and I do have a plan for that.

0:21:120:21:18

And you will be hard-pressed to guess what that plan is,

0:21:180:21:21

but it will look stunning in its new location.

0:21:210:21:25

My favourite item is the cast-iron stick stand.

0:21:250:21:29

Sadly, it's had a little bit of damage in transit,

0:21:290:21:33

so I'm going to look into having that repaired.

0:21:330:21:35

And the wings?

0:21:350:21:36

Well, I have just the person for these.

0:21:360:21:39

I hope she will be thrilled to get them.

0:21:390:21:43

So, I think I've done rather well at my English antique market,

0:21:430:21:46

even though I bought mainly French items.

0:21:460:21:48

Caroline also needs to find a buyer for her 1920s French wheelbarrow.

0:21:490:21:54

Back in Herefordshire,

0:21:550:21:56

Miss Bliss can't even get her enormous spoils through the door.

0:21:560:22:00

My favourite has to be my apple ladder.

0:22:010:22:04

Now, this is so reminiscent of childhood days in Herefordshire

0:22:040:22:08

fruit picking, and I think, actually, to sell this,

0:22:080:22:10

it would be great to take it back to an orchard.

0:22:100:22:14

Now, the wine rack I'm a little bit nervous about, if I'm honest with you,

0:22:140:22:17

because it's quite an investment.

0:22:170:22:19

And although there may be plenty of apple orchards in Herefordshire,

0:22:190:22:23

Champagne vineyards?

0:22:230:22:25

Slightly trickier. So, I might have my work cut out with this one.

0:22:250:22:29

The bedside cabinet is lovely, but because it's got that marble top,

0:22:290:22:34

it might look just as good in a shop as beside a nice bed.

0:22:340:22:38

Which leads me to my table and benches.

0:22:380:22:41

It's got a bit of an industrial look,

0:22:410:22:43

a little bit out of my comfort zone,

0:22:430:22:46

but I think there's got to be an eating house involved where I sell these,

0:22:460:22:50

and, hopefully, a good slice of profit to go with them.

0:22:500:22:53

Well, I've certainly got some big lumps to load up.

0:22:530:22:57

I think I might have to put the roof down on the wagon.

0:22:570:23:00

And if she can squeeze it in,

0:23:010:23:02

Kate also has to find a buyer for her Edwardian butler's table.

0:23:020:23:07

But now, our savvy sellers must employ their expert knowledge,

0:23:070:23:10

charge up their mobiles and laptops,

0:23:100:23:13

and travel the length and breadth of the land to track down buyers

0:23:130:23:16

for their booty.

0:23:160:23:17

They will sell at the best price they can,

0:23:170:23:19

with all the profits going to their chosen charities.

0:23:190:23:22

But remember, until they've shaken on it and the money has changed hands,

0:23:220:23:25

no deal is truly sealed.

0:23:250:23:27

First to step up to the selling challenge is Kate.

0:23:300:23:33

She hopes she has found the dream location for her bedside cabinet.

0:23:330:23:37

But there is not a bed to be seen.

0:23:370:23:39

Well, what an idyllic rural scene.

0:23:410:23:44

I've come just down the road from home to my local farm shop.

0:23:440:23:47

I think my French bedside cabinet could be put to a different purpose,

0:23:470:23:52

and I'm really hoping that Nick, who runs the shop, will agree with me.

0:23:520:23:56

Remember, it owes her £50.

0:23:570:24:00

Hi, Nick. Morning! Great to see you.

0:24:000:24:03

So, here it is.

0:24:030:24:06

I hope you're going to pick that up, Kate!

0:24:060:24:08

It probably dates from around 1900, I would think,

0:24:080:24:11

it's got some age to it.

0:24:110:24:12

It's painted in typically French style.

0:24:120:24:15

There probably would have been a pair to it,

0:24:150:24:17

and they would have stood either side of a lovely carved French bed.

0:24:170:24:21

But I think it might be a good display piece for the shop.

0:24:210:24:25

It would be. We would use it for tasting.

0:24:250:24:27

Herefordshire does have some amazing local producers,

0:24:270:24:29

and we'd use it to promote those.

0:24:290:24:31

OK, well, that sounds fantastic.

0:24:320:24:33

Sounds like you can put it to use,

0:24:330:24:35

so I was hoping for around the sort of 260-ish.

0:24:350:24:38

How does that sound to you?

0:24:380:24:40

Um... You couldn't stretch to 200, could you?

0:24:400:24:43

Um... If I came back to 250?

0:24:430:24:46

We'll go for 240 if that would be OK for you.

0:24:460:24:48

240? That's sort of in the middle, isn't it?

0:24:480:24:51

-It is, isn't it, yes.

-That does mean it. That's great.

0:24:510:24:53

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you very much, Kate.

-Lovely.

0:24:530:24:55

Mon dieu!

0:24:550:24:57

Kate's dinky little bedside cabinet gives up a whopping first profit

0:24:570:25:01

of £190, and finds a new home down on the farm.

0:25:010:25:05

Well, for all I know,

0:25:050:25:07

that bedside cabinet was straight out of a Parisian apartment,

0:25:070:25:10

and here it is in a Herefordshire farm shop displaying salad dressing.

0:25:100:25:15

Well, that's a great story for me.

0:25:150:25:16

And more importantly, a great profit.

0:25:160:25:19

Caroline? How are you doing?

0:25:190:25:21

Well, The Hawk is not one to take things lying down,

0:25:230:25:26

and she has got big ideas for one of her French wares.

0:25:260:25:30

Well, then, here I am to see Christian,

0:25:300:25:33

a friend of mine who has got this exciting new project on,

0:25:330:25:38

which is an adventure playground.

0:25:380:25:41

Christian has no idea what I have brought in.

0:25:410:25:44

But I've brought him the cartwheel to hang lighting from.

0:25:440:25:48

I just think it's going to be superb.

0:25:480:25:50

I hope he does, too.

0:25:500:25:53

The cartwheel owes her £70.

0:25:530:25:55

-Hi, Christian.

-Hi, Caroline.

0:25:580:26:00

-Nice to see you.

-Great to see you.

0:26:000:26:02

This is amazing.

0:26:020:26:03

Are you keeping all the beams?

0:26:030:26:05

We are retaining as much timber as possible,

0:26:050:26:07

and the whole site, with the play equipment and everything else,

0:26:070:26:11

is all bespoke and natural materials.

0:26:110:26:13

-Right, so I bet you're dying to see what I've brought you.

-I am.

0:26:130:26:15

I'll go and get it. See you soon.

0:26:150:26:19

Your childhood skills! That's really very appropriate.

0:26:190:26:22

-Wheeling a wheel.

-Do you like it?

-Wow, look at that.

0:26:220:26:25

It's early 19th century,

0:26:250:26:27

and I thought it would be wonderful suspended from the beams with lights.

0:26:270:26:33

Well, it could either be on the wall as a feature or, as you say,

0:26:330:26:37

we could make a chandelier out of it.

0:26:370:26:38

Yes, exactly!

0:26:380:26:40

I thought between...

0:26:400:26:43

180 and 220?

0:26:430:26:46

I would have been happier nearer the 100 mark, really.

0:26:460:26:49

Ooh! What about 170?

0:26:490:26:53

130?

0:26:530:26:54

Ooh! Ooh!

0:26:540:26:57

140, and it's a deal.

0:26:570:26:59

-OK, Caroline. You've got a deal.

-Oh, brilliant.

0:26:590:27:01

Caroline rounds off her first deal with a healthy profit of £70,

0:27:010:27:05

and if she's not doing cartwheels, well, she seems pretty happy.

0:27:050:27:10

Well, I think my wheel has found its perfect home here.

0:27:100:27:14

And Miss Bliss,

0:27:140:27:15

you're going to have to watch this space because I am the top

0:27:150:27:19

wheeler dealer.

0:27:190:27:20

At one deal all,

0:27:210:27:22

Kate is also grappling with one of her big woody purchases.

0:27:220:27:26

Still in the Herefordshire countryside,

0:27:310:27:32

she has brought her 1930s apple ladder that cost £12 to

0:27:320:27:35

show cider company boss Bean.

0:27:350:27:38

-Hi there, you must be Bean.

-Hi, Kate, nice to meet you.

0:27:380:27:41

-Great to meet you.

-Fantastic, and you've brought a ladder with you.

0:27:410:27:44

This is my apple ladder. What do you think of it?

0:27:440:27:46

I think it looks lovely and old. Shall we go to the orchard?

0:27:460:27:48

Yeah, why don't we do that?

0:27:480:27:49

-All right, let's go.

-Great, I'll follow you.

-All right.

0:27:490:27:51

Well, this is beautiful.

0:27:560:27:57

Now, you're moving premises, aren't you, from here in Herefordshire?

0:27:570:28:00

We are, yeah. We want to grow the business.

0:28:000:28:02

So, we've decided to move to Cheddar and we've bought a site there.

0:28:020:28:06

We're going to have quite a big shop there,

0:28:060:28:07

and we want it to have a lovely rustic feel,

0:28:070:28:09

so we're trying to find certain things like this.

0:28:090:28:12

We're trying to find some old wooden presses,

0:28:120:28:14

so that when people come in it's not just a shop,

0:28:140:28:17

there's a feel about it and we can bring a bit of Herefordshire

0:28:170:28:19

from here to there.

0:28:190:28:21

BOTH: So...

0:28:210:28:22

-We had better talk money.

-Great.

0:28:230:28:25

Well, I mean, I was hoping for around sort of 160-ish.

0:28:250:28:29

-How does that sound...

-Were you?

-..for a rustic ladder?

0:28:290:28:31

OK, I was thinking maybe not quite so much.

0:28:310:28:33

-OK.

-I would say around 100.

0:28:330:28:37

Mm-hm. Could I squeeze you for, say, 120?

0:28:370:28:41

Just go that little bit more?

0:28:410:28:42

-Go on, then.

-Would that be all right?

-Yes, 120.

-Wonderful.

0:28:420:28:46

And with her second sale,

0:28:460:28:47

Kate bottles a tasty profit of £108,

0:28:470:28:50

and climbs one deal ahead of Caroline.

0:28:500:28:53

And staying in Herefordshire,

0:28:540:28:55

she sells her Edwardian butler's table to inn owner Mark.

0:28:550:28:59

-Is 180 OK?

-180 is fair.

-Lovely, thank you very much.

0:28:590:29:02

Thank you very much.

0:29:020:29:04

Serving up another bumper profit of £140.

0:29:040:29:07

Meanwhile, Caroline has arranged to meet Maria,

0:29:100:29:12

founder of a Derbyshire charity which arranges caravan holidays

0:29:120:29:16

for families affected by life-limiting conditions.

0:29:160:29:20

Hello. Hi, Maria!

0:29:200:29:22

And she has a very special reason for bringing her 1930s angel wings.

0:29:220:29:27

So, just tell me a little bit about the charity work that you do.

0:29:270:29:31

Well, I set it up ten years ago and there's two caravans

0:29:310:29:35

in Mapplethorpe, one for families facing very short futures,

0:29:350:29:39

so, for a lot of families, their last holiday.

0:29:390:29:42

Then there's the second caravan which is for seriously injured military.

0:29:420:29:46

-You have volunteers helping you.

-Yes.

0:29:460:29:49

-Now, a little bird told me that these volunteers, they're called angels.

-Yes.

0:29:490:29:53

-We've only got a very small group, probably a dozen.

-Mm.

0:29:530:29:57

So, when events are on, they're there,

0:29:570:29:59

-you know, sleeves rolled up.

-Your angels are there.

-That's right.

0:29:590:30:02

Brilliant - well, this might be a good point

0:30:020:30:04

for me to leave you for one second, Maria.

0:30:040:30:07

Ooh, this is exciting - I hope she's going to like them.

0:30:070:30:10

Yes, because the wings owe her £50.

0:30:100:30:13

-SHE GASPS

-Oh, wow!

0:30:150:30:17

A real pair of angel's wings!

0:30:170:30:20

-Oh, they're lovely!

-And they're swan's-down.

0:30:200:30:23

Oh, how beautiful!

0:30:230:30:26

I think they will be on display, a feature at the charity ball.

0:30:270:30:31

Now, price.

0:30:310:30:32

I was looking for about 150.

0:30:320:30:36

Were you? What if I was to say £100?

0:30:360:30:40

110?

0:30:400:30:41

What if I met you halfway with 105?

0:30:430:30:47

-I think that's a deal.

-Do you?

0:30:470:30:48

Yes, I do.

0:30:480:30:50

-Brilliant!

-Thank you very much.

0:30:500:30:52

Our Angel of the North flies off with a profit of £55,

0:30:520:30:56

and that brings us to the halfway mark,

0:30:560:30:58

so let's tot up the totals so far.

0:30:580:31:00

Kate has made three sales and has a profit of £438.

0:31:020:31:07

Caroline is trailing with two sales and a profit of £125.

0:31:070:31:12

So, Kate is out in front, and she aims to stay in pole position.

0:31:120:31:16

Her mid-century Champagne riddle rack

0:31:160:31:18

has been delivered to a winery near Tamworth.

0:31:180:31:21

At £190, it was Kate's priciest buy -

0:31:210:31:24

but will proprietor Yvonne like it?

0:31:240:31:27

-Hello, Yvonne.

-Hello, nice to meet you.

0:31:280:31:30

Yeah, and you. How do you do?

0:31:300:31:31

I see my wine rack's arrived in the winery there.

0:31:310:31:34

It has. I've been putting bottles in it just to see what it looks like.

0:31:340:31:37

Yes! So, what's your speciality?

0:31:370:31:39

Because, of course, my wine rack

0:31:390:31:41

is straight out of a Champagne producer..

0:31:410:31:43

-Yeah.

-..in France - and you've got to be very careful

0:31:430:31:45

-how you use that word, Champagne, haven't you?

-You have, yes -

0:31:450:31:48

you're not allowed to use it in England.

0:31:480:31:50

We are producing sparkling wine,

0:31:500:31:51

which I have some of our own here which hasn't got that far,

0:31:510:31:55

-it's been settling - but it's all the same process, really.

-Yeah.

0:31:550:31:58

They just have to keep turning it

0:31:580:32:00

until all the sediment has gone into the bottom.

0:32:000:32:04

And then what happens when all the sediment has gone into the neck?

0:32:040:32:07

-We freeze this.

-Mm.

0:32:070:32:08

The pressure makes the cork come out, the sediment comes out,

0:32:080:32:11

and then we re-bottle it.

0:32:110:32:13

So, what do you think of it?

0:32:130:32:14

You could see the age in it,

0:32:140:32:16

and I think it'll look really cool in our deli cafe,

0:32:160:32:19

-so that people can actually be able to talk about it...

-Yes.

0:32:190:32:22

-..and find out what it's for, really.

-Yeah.

0:32:220:32:24

So, what about price, then?

0:32:240:32:26

I mean, how does 380 sound?

0:32:260:32:28

Unfortunately, I don't think we can go to that much.

0:32:280:32:30

-Mm-hm.

-I could probably go to about 280.

0:32:300:32:33

Could I push you just a wee bit?

0:32:330:32:35

Maybe, I might get you £10 on that.

0:32:350:32:38

-So, 290?

-Yeah.

0:32:380:32:39

-Maybe.

-Yeah? That sounds great -

0:32:390:32:41

I tell you what, I'll give you a hand in the winery.

0:32:410:32:44

-That sounds good.

-If you can stretch to 290.

0:32:440:32:45

I might even give you a glass of sparkling.

0:32:450:32:48

Ooh! That sounds even better!

0:32:480:32:50

So, Kate makes a sweet profit of £100

0:32:500:32:52

and fills up her coffer as well as the rack.

0:32:520:32:55

-Lovely.

-Don't drop any.

-OK, I'll do my best.

0:32:560:32:59

-Well done.

-Fantastic! Brilliant.

-Looks brilliant.

0:33:060:33:09

Kate is 4-2 up, but iron-willed Caroline is not to be beaten.

0:33:090:33:13

She's in London with her Victorian stick stand that owes her £130.

0:33:130:33:19

As it was damaged in transit,

0:33:190:33:20

the Put Your Money games masters have covered the cost of the repair.

0:33:200:33:24

The Hawk has had it delivered to specialist Dominic

0:33:240:33:27

who deals in, well, sticks.

0:33:270:33:29

# Hit me with your rhythm stick... #

0:33:290:33:32

-Hello, Dominic.

-Hi, hello.

-Hello!

-Hi, nice to see you.

-And you.

-Yes.

0:33:320:33:36

This is the stick stand I told you about.

0:33:360:33:39

Yes, indeed. Tell me more about it.

0:33:390:33:41

Well, it's English.

0:33:410:33:43

-Yes.

-It dates between 1843-1883,

0:33:430:33:46

and I know that because it's got a registration lozenge on the back.

0:33:460:33:49

-Yeah.

-It's a little bit of sadness here, it was broken...

0:33:490:33:52

-I spotted that, yes.

-..so, that's been repaired -

0:33:520:33:54

-but it's been properly repaired by a cast-iron repairer.

-Sure.

0:33:540:33:58

We, as walking stick specialists,

0:33:580:34:00

buy stands like this really to supply them to our collectors

0:34:000:34:04

because they often don't know what to put the canes in.

0:34:040:34:07

So what collectors look for with these

0:34:070:34:09

is really how decorative they are,

0:34:090:34:11

and what the motifs are,

0:34:110:34:13

and that often relates to things they collect.

0:34:130:34:16

So, you know, you will get ones with horses if they collect horses.

0:34:160:34:18

Or this one has got some pretty birds, or...

0:34:180:34:20

-Yeah.

-Which is a great Victorian subject,

0:34:200:34:23

lots of bird-related walking canes.

0:34:230:34:25

The repair here is a little bit sad...

0:34:250:34:27

-Yes.

-..but sometimes they're missing the base altogether -

0:34:270:34:31

and, as you say, that's been done pretty well.

0:34:310:34:33

So, I think it's desirable -

0:34:330:34:34

-so, now it's the hard bit.

-Excellent - now it's the hard bit!

0:34:340:34:37

-Now it's the hard bit.

-Dominic!

0:34:370:34:38

Well, I was hoping to get about 220 for it.

0:34:380:34:43

-Yeah. You know, if it didn't have any faults...

-Mm-hm.

0:34:430:34:46

..that would be a fair price for it.

0:34:460:34:48

-Yeah.

-Even though it's been repaired very well,

0:34:480:34:51

it's sadly no longer perfect.

0:34:510:34:53

I'd rather offer you something like 180 for this,

0:34:530:34:57

-I think that's going to be...

-Could you stretch to two?

-Ooh.

0:34:570:35:01

You are fierce.

0:35:010:35:02

-I will split...

-I'm a fierce Yorkshire lass, Dominic.

0:35:020:35:04

Yes, you've come down here, and bashing us up.

0:35:040:35:07

I will split the difference with you, I'll give you 190 for it.

0:35:070:35:10

I will accept your 190.

0:35:100:35:12

-You spoil me.

-Thank you very much.

-OK.

0:35:120:35:15

So, Caroline sticks it to the competition with that profit of £60,

0:35:150:35:18

and gets a guided tour of Dominic's canes.

0:35:180:35:22

This is a lovely one,

0:35:220:35:23

made for a lady who might have just perhaps gone and ordered

0:35:230:35:27

a taffeta dress in apricot, and she'd go and have a cane to match.

0:35:270:35:31

Yes, in the guilloche enamel.

0:35:310:35:32

-Exactly.

-Ohh!

-Yeah, silver -

0:35:320:35:33

and then this does something a little bit more special,

0:35:330:35:36

it opens up...

0:35:360:35:37

-Oh, that is beautiful.

-So...

0:35:370:35:39

So she can powder her nose at the same time as spying behind her.

0:35:390:35:42

-I hadn't thought of that.

-To see who's behind her.

0:35:420:35:44

That's a lady's trick, isn't it? I had never thought of that,

0:35:440:35:46

-you could see over your shoulder.

-Yes, you can!

-Well done, you.

0:35:460:35:49

As I always, always say,

0:35:490:35:52

a little bit of damage makes an awful lot of difference -

0:35:520:35:55

but I've made a healthy profit, so, job done.

0:35:550:35:58

Fortunately, there's no damage to her 20th-century wheelbarrow,

0:35:590:36:03

and Caroline sells it to holiday cottage owner Louise

0:36:030:36:06

in East Yorkshire.

0:36:060:36:08

-120?

-Yeah.

-Go on.

0:36:080:36:10

-I'll go for that.

-Brilliant, it's a deal!

0:36:100:36:13

She wheels away her biggest profit so far -

0:36:130:36:16

£80 - and Louise has a pretty addition to her garden.

0:36:160:36:19

Another great sale from The Hawk.

0:36:200:36:22

Doesn't it look wonderful in that little courtyard garden?

0:36:220:36:25

What do you think, Kate?

0:36:250:36:26

Our antiques aficionados are now on four deals apiece,

0:36:280:36:31

and Kate is looking to shift her final item.

0:36:310:36:34

Now, what's big, orange and German?

0:36:340:36:36

Yes, it's her 1990s Bierkeller set.

0:36:360:36:39

She's had it delivered to a pub in Kington,

0:36:390:36:42

but she's sounding distinctly unconfident.

0:36:420:36:44

I'm just about to meet the owner, John,

0:36:450:36:47

but I'm a little bit nervous,

0:36:470:36:49

because I'm not quite sure it's going to fit

0:36:490:36:51

with the current garden furniture -

0:36:510:36:53

but it is my last sale, so let's hope it's a good one.

0:36:530:36:58

Remember, it cost £95.

0:36:580:37:01

Hello there, John.

0:37:010:37:02

-Hi.

-How do you do?

-Hi, Kate, hi.

0:37:020:37:05

It arrived safely, then, I see.

0:37:050:37:06

It has, and...yeah, it's...

0:37:060:37:09

-it's different, for sure.

-Yeah!

-Yeah.

0:37:090:37:11

The size is actually quite good, isn't it?

0:37:110:37:13

It's about two metres, I think.

0:37:130:37:15

So you can get a lot of people round there.

0:37:150:37:17

Well, our other benches, they're not going to take more than four -

0:37:170:37:19

-and we do get groups of 10 or 12, and they'd love it round here.

-Yeah?

0:37:190:37:23

It's straight out of a German beer house -

0:37:230:37:26

and you can see it's got the German writing here, so...

0:37:260:37:28

-That's original?

-It's original.

-You haven't just written that on?

0:37:280:37:31

-No, absolutely not.

-Fantastic.

0:37:310:37:33

So it's got folding legs, though, which...

0:37:330:37:36

-they are really useful because...

-That's good.

0:37:360:37:38

-You want to be able to pack it away.

-Exactly.

-I like it.

0:37:380:37:41

-Can I...?

-Yeah, try it out.

0:37:410:37:43

-You can imagine... Ooh!

-Whoa!

-Oh, hello!

0:37:430:37:45

-I'll sit at the other end.

-Now, we've got to remember that,

0:37:450:37:48

we've got to have at least two of us on here, otherwise...

0:37:480:37:50

-There we go, that's better.

-..we have a slide, as well!

0:37:500:37:52

Yeah!

0:37:520:37:54

I mean, have you ever had beer festivals at the hotel?

0:37:540:37:56

Might that be something?

0:37:560:37:58

We used to have beer theme nights.

0:37:580:37:59

Well, maybe you could bring it back, then?

0:37:590:38:01

Yeah, I'm sure the locals would be up for it.

0:38:010:38:04

Well, I'm hoping for about sort of 320, how does that sound to you?

0:38:040:38:08

Wow. I was hoping we could go more like sort of 150 to start with.

0:38:080:38:11

-Were you?

-Yes.

0:38:110:38:13

I've got a reputation to keep here

0:38:130:38:15

because they know that I'm a mean landlord, you see.

0:38:150:38:18

-Are you?

-Yeah.

-Well, if I came just under the three and said 290,

0:38:180:38:23

how does that sound?

0:38:230:38:25

Somewhere near 250?

0:38:250:38:26

Tell you what, 270?

0:38:280:38:30

All right, OK, 270.

0:38:300:38:32

-Yeah, that sound all right?

-Yeah.

-Fantastic.

0:38:320:38:34

-Thank you, John.

-OK.

0:38:340:38:35

Kate's seesaw-cum-bench and table set

0:38:350:38:39

brews up a fabulous final profit of £175,

0:38:390:38:42

and Kate says auf wiedersehen to her last item.

0:38:420:38:45

Well, I'm really pleased.

0:38:470:38:49

John's got himself a set of lovely practical garden furniture,

0:38:490:38:52

which hopefully the locals will love -

0:38:520:38:55

and as for me, well, I'm sitting pretty.

0:38:550:38:57

# I'm gonna ride my bike until I get home... #

0:38:590:39:01

Kate is out of the selling game now,

0:39:010:39:03

so there is all to play for on Caroline's final deal.

0:39:030:39:07

She's brought her 1960s bike that cost £50 to Martin,

0:39:070:39:11

owner of a bike workshop and cycle-themed cafe in York.

0:39:110:39:15

Well, Martin, I think, without a shadow of a doubt,

0:39:150:39:18

I've come to the right place here, looking around.

0:39:180:39:22

Yes, I think you have, looking at this.

0:39:220:39:24

So, what do you think?

0:39:240:39:25

It's beautiful, it really is beautiful.

0:39:250:39:27

I mean, I've not seen one of these before,

0:39:270:39:29

I've got to be honest.

0:39:290:39:31

I don't really know an awful lot about the make,

0:39:310:39:33

but you can clearly see that it's quality,

0:39:330:39:36

and it's got some nostalgia to it.

0:39:360:39:38

-Yeah, well, it came straight from a barn in France...

-Right, wow.

0:39:380:39:43

..and I've looked into it a bit - the seat is absolutely original,

0:39:430:39:47

and another thing I love are the panniers.

0:39:470:39:49

Yeah. They also, to me, look original.

0:39:490:39:52

Yeah, I'm sure they are -

0:39:520:39:53

-but look, yes, yes.

-Yeah, also inside here,

0:39:530:39:56

which is just even better...

0:39:560:39:57

-Oh, wow, yeah?

-..this looks like the original puncture repair kit.

0:39:570:40:01

-Obviously, it's had a few modern additions...

-Yeah.

0:40:010:40:04

..but the tooling that's inside it -

0:40:040:40:06

I mean, you just don't see spanners like that any more.

0:40:060:40:09

We're very much kind of, the nostalgic stuff.

0:40:100:40:12

-You've got bike frames hanging up, haven't you?

-Yeah,

0:40:120:40:14

we've got a lot of old bike frames hanging around the place.

0:40:140:40:17

Once we give it a good clean and a good polish,

0:40:170:40:19

it's just going to look amazing.

0:40:190:40:21

-I'm so pleased you like it!

-Providing we can agree on a price!

0:40:210:40:24

Right! Well, I was thinking, what about 190?

0:40:240:40:30

I was looking for...

0:40:300:40:31

So, has Caroline found the perfect buyer for her bike?

0:40:310:40:35

Before we find out who is riding high and who's taken a tumble,

0:40:350:40:39

let's remind ourselves how much our experts spent.

0:40:390:40:42

They both started with £750 of their own money to spend.

0:40:420:40:47

Kate made five purchases costing her a total of £387.

0:40:470:40:52

Caroline also made five buys, costing her £340 -

0:40:520:40:56

but who has made the most profit?

0:40:560:40:59

All the money that Caroline and Kate have made in today's challenge

0:40:590:41:02

will go to charities of their choice, so let's find out

0:41:020:41:05

who is the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

0:41:050:41:08

-Hi, Kate.

-Hey, how you doing?

0:41:100:41:12

-Good!

-Good to see you!

-Well, that was an interesting fair, wasn't it?

0:41:120:41:15

-Yeah, a little bit tricky in places, I thought.

-Yeah.

0:41:150:41:17

So, how did you get on with the selling?

0:41:170:41:19

Well, do you remember those angel wings?

0:41:190:41:21

You know, that's the one thing I really wanted to ask you about -

0:41:210:41:23

who did you sell them to?

0:41:230:41:24

Well, there was only one client that would have bought those.

0:41:240:41:27

-She just adored the wings.

-Yeah?

-She was absolutely thrilled -

0:41:270:41:31

but if she didn't want them,

0:41:310:41:32

I think I might have struggled to find someone.

0:41:320:41:35

-And then my little French barrow...

-Yeah.

0:41:350:41:37

..that went to a lovely lady to use in a sort of holiday cottage garden,

0:41:370:41:41

and it looked really, really sweet.

0:41:410:41:43

Well, I think, probably, in terms of profit -

0:41:430:41:45

do you remember my Bierkeller set?

0:41:450:41:47

Yes, yes, yes.

0:41:470:41:49

They were a really good, successful sale -

0:41:490:41:51

but I think my favourite sale was my rustic ladder,

0:41:510:41:54

which, for me, just was meant for an orchard -

0:41:540:41:56

and that's exactly where I sold it, to some cider makers.

0:41:560:42:01

So, shall we face the music?

0:42:010:42:02

Yeah, we'll see how it all turned out, then, shall we?

0:42:020:42:05

Yeah. Are you ready?

0:42:050:42:06

-Yeah.

-One...

-Two...

-Three...

0:42:060:42:08

Go!

0:42:080:42:09

-Ooh!

-Ooh!

-Look at that!

-Kate!

0:42:090:42:12

Well done, you!

0:42:120:42:13

That's better than I thought, actually.

0:42:130:42:15

I didn't think I'd made that much.

0:42:150:42:16

-Excellent.

-All items actually went well,

0:42:160:42:19

so it's a sort of combined effort.

0:42:190:42:20

Brilliant - well, you've done very, very well indeed, Kate.

0:42:200:42:23

So have you. Well, I tell you what, those angel's wings, you know,

0:42:230:42:26

when I saw them, I was so jealous - I thought they were fantastic!

0:42:260:42:30

So, despite a great final deal by Caroline...

0:42:300:42:33

170?

0:42:330:42:34

-Done.

-Brilliant!

0:42:340:42:36

..which netted her a stonking profit of £120,

0:42:360:42:40

it wasn't enough to beat Kate,

0:42:400:42:42

whose bedside cabinet and Bierkeller set pushed her profits right up...

0:42:420:42:46

Well, I knew I had done consistently OK,

0:42:470:42:49

but when that briefcase opened and I saw over £700, wow!

0:42:490:42:54

I am super chuffed.

0:42:540:42:56

Kate did absolutely brilliantly profit-wise,

0:42:570:43:00

but I think I had the most fun.

0:43:000:43:02

I liked buying every single one of my items,

0:43:020:43:05

and I enjoyed selling them.

0:43:050:43:06

..but Caroline will get one last chance to fight back tomorrow,

0:43:060:43:10

when she and Kate gear up for the battle of all battles -

0:43:100:43:13

the showdown!

0:43:130:43:15

Oh, no! That was quick!

0:43:150:43:17

Kate Bliss and Caroline Hawley square up at an antiques fair in Surrey. Will Caroline fly into the lead with a pair of vintage angel's wings, or will Kate climb to the top of the heap with an apple ladder?
