We've all seen them on TV,

0:00:020:00:03

but how will the country's favourite antiques experts fare

0:00:030:00:06

when they're challenged to make a profit with their own cash?

0:00:060:00:09

I'll be switching on my bargain-ometer.

0:00:090:00:12

Knocker Knowles, I'm right on your heels!

0:00:120:00:15

From car boot sales to auction houses,

0:00:150:00:17

our experts will be recreating some of their real life

0:00:170:00:21

deals as they go head to head

0:00:210:00:23

and try to make the most money for their chosen charities.

0:00:230:00:27

You watch out here, Miss Bliss.

0:00:270:00:28

So the pressure is really on.

0:00:280:00:31

The challenge to our experts is clear -

0:00:310:00:33

dealers, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:00:330:00:36

Today's hard-nosed dealers

0:01:060:01:08

are Put Your Money's very own genial gent,

0:01:080:01:10

Jonty the Hitman Hearnden

0:01:100:01:12

and our very own First Lady of antiques,

0:01:120:01:16

Kate Absolute Bliss.

0:01:160:01:18

With a father who was an auctioneer,

0:01:180:01:20

Kate has spent her life surrounded by antiques,

0:01:200:01:23

and is a renowned independent valuer, agent and broker

0:01:230:01:26

with over 12 years of business experience.

0:01:260:01:28

To say that I've got a favourite period is actually quite tricky.

0:01:280:01:32

But I think if I had to name one, it would be the Regency period,

0:01:320:01:35

the very beginning of the 19th century, when things were very elegant.

0:01:350:01:39

Her position as First Lady of antiques

0:01:390:01:42

comes from dispensing expert advice on Bargain Hunt and Flog It.

0:01:420:01:45

Can I be really cheeky and say, what about 12?

0:01:470:01:50

Jonty has carved out a very successful career in the world of antiques and collectibles,

0:01:510:01:56

having worked at world-famous auction houses

0:01:560:01:59

and running his own antiques business.

0:01:590:02:01

I first got into antiques 30 years ago.

0:02:010:02:04

I left school with no notion of what I wanted to do at all, so I joined a

0:02:040:02:07

firm of London auctioneers, where I got very excited very quickly.

0:02:070:02:13

Met lots of very interesting people,

0:02:130:02:15

and have really never left the business.

0:02:150:02:17

A firm favourite with the housewives,

0:02:170:02:20

this antiques hunter can regularly be found

0:02:200:02:22

searching for Cash in the Attic.

0:02:220:02:24

Today we're giving good old Blighty a well deserved break,

0:02:240:02:27

because our challenge will be taking place overseas in Belgium.

0:02:270:02:32

Jonty and Kate have headed to Waterloo

0:02:340:02:37

and with their reputations and the fortunes of their chosen charities on the line,

0:02:370:02:42

it's time for us to find out the aim of today's game.

0:02:420:02:45

-Morning.

-Morning.

0:02:450:02:46

Well, obviously we've been sent here to Waterloo to do battle.

0:02:460:02:50

Yes. That must be for you.

0:02:500:02:52

-That's presumably for you.

-Let's have a look.

-Here we go.

0:02:520:02:55

Let's see what it says here.

0:02:550:02:57

Right, it says, "Jonty and Kate, your challenge today is to spend £750..."

0:02:570:03:02

That must be in euros though, surely?

0:03:020:03:04

I suppose the equivalent of, "Of your own money on antiques.

0:03:040:03:08

"You must then re sell your purchases with the aim of making as much profit as possible.

0:03:080:03:13

"The winner is the presenter who makes the most cash."

0:03:130:03:17

Well, "Today you must buy all your antiques from a Belgian market."

0:03:170:03:23

Well, bonne chance, mon ami.

0:03:230:03:25

Let battle commence.

0:03:250:03:27

So, our experts can spend up to £750 of their own money

0:03:270:03:31

at an antiques market.

0:03:310:03:33

They will then bring these purchases back to the UK

0:03:330:03:36

and try and sell them on for as much profit as possible.

0:03:360:03:39

Today's market is on the outskirts of Waterloo near Brussels.

0:03:390:03:44

The market, held every Sunday, hosts hundreds of professional dealers.

0:03:440:03:48

It's a fantastic place to pick up top-quality antiques,

0:03:480:03:51

but will they be at rock-bottom prices?

0:03:510:03:54

Look at this - fishing for bargains, you've got a corset!

0:03:540:03:58

Pretty much everybody that Jonty and Kate try to do deals with will

0:03:580:04:01

be aware they're on a mission

0:04:010:04:03

to raise as much money as possible for charity

0:04:030:04:06

and our experts will do everything in their power

0:04:060:04:08

to persuade people to give them the best possible prices

0:04:080:04:12

when they buy and sell the items

0:04:120:04:14

that they hope will drive them to victory.

0:04:140:04:16

One thing I am focused on today is,

0:04:160:04:18

I'm going to beat that Jonty Hearnden.

0:04:180:04:21

In order to get the best deals Kate will keep an open mind on the items she tries to buy.

0:04:210:04:27

Jonty, on the other hand, will be focusing most of his

0:04:270:04:30

energies on finding potentially profitable pieces of furniture.

0:04:300:04:35

Perfect. This is the sort of chair that I always look for in markets like this.

0:04:370:04:42

Need to check what's behind the fringe at the bottom,

0:04:420:04:44

but I suspect we've got ebony turned legs. Let's have a look down here.

0:04:440:04:49

There we go look at that really nice quality turned legs.

0:04:510:04:56

They need a bit of a freshen up, but with this fringe taken off,

0:04:560:05:00

and with this chair completely re covered,

0:05:000:05:03

this is a very pretty little bedroom chair.

0:05:030:05:06

Excuse me. Pardon?

0:05:060:05:09

-Combien? Cent?

-Oui.

0:05:090:05:12

-What about this vase. 20

-This is 20?

0:05:140:05:18

What's your best price for two?

0:05:180:05:21

I will take 80, that's really my best price.

0:05:210:05:23

-80 for two?

-80 for both.

0:05:230:05:25

You have a sale. Fantastic. Merci.

0:05:250:05:27

So, that's just over £75 for the vase and chair.

0:05:270:05:32

If every dealer is as quick as that then Jonty

0:05:320:05:35

could be back in Blighty by lunch.

0:05:350:05:37

Kate, you missed that. You missed it.

0:05:390:05:42

Now listen here, listen very carefully.

0:05:420:05:45

The right buyer at home is going to pay £600 - £800

0:05:450:05:50

for that chair completely restored, but I've got to find the right buyer.

0:05:500:05:54

If he's planning to restore the chair to its former glory,

0:05:540:05:57

then Jonty will need to remember to hold back some of his budget.

0:05:570:06:01

On the other side of the market Kate's made her first purchase too.

0:06:010:06:05

But, unlike her rival, she's planning ahead.

0:06:050:06:08

Merci.

0:06:080:06:10

Well...

0:06:120:06:14

"Not very exciting," you say to me.

0:06:140:06:16

Pretty dirty and certainly not very old.

0:06:160:06:19

It's just a little child's deckchair.

0:06:190:06:20

My daughter would love it.

0:06:200:06:22

But I bought this with one particular person in mind

0:06:220:06:25

and that's the lady who lives just down the road from me

0:06:250:06:28

who has the most fantastic collection of child's chairs.

0:06:280:06:32

This is in a completely different league of course.

0:06:320:06:37

But I'm hoping, I've only paid just under £5 for it, she might just

0:06:370:06:41

buy it from me for a small profit as a bit of fun.

0:06:410:06:45

The worrying thing is, if I can't persuade her,

0:06:450:06:47

I don't know what on earth I'm going to do with it.

0:06:470:06:50

Kate may have only splashed out just under a fiver on her deckchair,

0:06:500:06:54

but every penny of potential profit counts in today's competition.

0:06:540:06:58

Now, our cultural attaches

0:06:580:07:00

have been soaking up the atmosphere since they stepped off the train.

0:07:000:07:04

However, it seems the drama and pressure

0:07:040:07:07

of this continental clash has become a little too much for Jonty.

0:07:070:07:11

FRENCH ACCENT: I am broken by the never-ending wheel

0:07:190:07:22

of the antiques hunt.

0:07:220:07:24

Objects of beauty drive me wild with desire.

0:07:300:07:35

Hmm.

0:07:370:07:40

I am an empty shell of a man

0:07:400:07:42

until I find the splendour of an antique chair.

0:07:420:07:45

Hmm.

0:07:490:07:51

My heart weeps and is hollow

0:07:510:07:54

every hour that passes without the thrill of a deal.

0:07:540:07:59

Yeah whatever, Jonty. Just put your money where your mouth is.

0:07:590:08:03

Yes, wise words indeed from Miss Bliss.

0:08:030:08:06

Pull yourself together, Mr Hearnden.

0:08:060:08:08

Now, when it comes to making a profit from Jonty's next purchase,

0:08:080:08:12

you could be forgiven for thinking he hasn't got a leg to stand on.

0:08:120:08:17

Now, you may well think I've gone completely mad

0:08:170:08:19

and I can understand your thinking.

0:08:190:08:21

You're thinking, what on earth has he bought here?

0:08:210:08:24

Well, what I have bought are two 19th century dining table ends

0:08:240:08:30

in appalling condition.

0:08:300:08:33

Now, once upon a time, these two lumps of expensive firewood

0:08:330:08:39

were part of a very grand

0:08:390:08:41

19th century dining table.

0:08:410:08:44

The timber itself is walnut,

0:08:440:08:47

and you can tell that by the colour and the shape of the grain.

0:08:470:08:52

So, for just over £20, how could I refuse?

0:08:520:08:56

How, indeed, Jonty.

0:08:560:08:58

Put You Money's resident furniture fanatic is on a bit of a roll.

0:08:580:09:02

But his rival is also hard at work.

0:09:020:09:05

Just look what I've found here.

0:09:060:09:08

Filthy dirty, and in a scruffy box,

0:09:080:09:11

I've found a German 1950s coffee set. Great coffee pot,

0:09:110:09:16

five little cups and saucers, and a sugar bowl and a jug.

0:09:160:09:22

Now what I like about this is, although it's German,

0:09:220:09:25

it's very reminiscent of what factories like Midwinter and Hornsey

0:09:250:09:29

were producing in Britain in the 1950s.

0:09:290:09:31

They often used more illustrative designs,

0:09:310:09:34

this is a really strong graphic geometric design.

0:09:340:09:37

Spots and squares, typically German,

0:09:370:09:39

but also very contemporary today and commercial.

0:09:390:09:43

Now we've a little bit of damage to this jug,

0:09:430:09:46

there's a bad chip out of the rim there, but the rest looks OK.

0:09:460:09:50

Now take a look at this sugar pot. It's still got the sugar in it and

0:09:510:09:55

it, and it looks like it's been there since the 50s. Nice!

0:09:550:09:58

Now I've just picked this up for 15 Euros,

0:09:580:10:01

so just under £15 to you and me.

0:10:010:10:03

I think that's a bargain.

0:10:030:10:05

Let's face it, just a good clean is going to put a tenner on it.

0:10:050:10:09

Let us not forget that profit is what it's all about.

0:10:090:10:12

With everything still to play for,

0:10:140:10:16

our experts continue their search

0:10:160:10:18

and Kate needs to knuckle down because, while Jonty has been busy collecting pieces of furniture,

0:10:180:10:24

Miss Bliss has barely spent any money.

0:10:240:10:28

Well, I have myself a deal.

0:10:280:10:30

20 Euros, which is roughly £18.

0:10:300:10:33

I'd like it to be slightly less because he is quite badly damaged,

0:10:330:10:36

but I'll just have to find

0:10:360:10:38

somebody who might be able to do a little bit of repair on my bear.

0:10:380:10:42

Let's hope he will bring me good luck.

0:10:420:10:44

I think I'm going to call him Pierre.

0:10:440:10:47

Pierre, le Francais bear.

0:10:470:10:50

Let's hope that Pierre knows a good antique when he sees one,

0:10:500:10:53

because so far Kate seems to be buying up bric a brac.

0:10:530:10:57

Thankfully, we can always count on Jonty's good taste.

0:10:570:11:00

Or can we?

0:11:030:11:05

I just bought this tangerine ceramic lamp base with this outrageously

0:11:050:11:12

kitsch lampshade.

0:11:120:11:14

I would no more have this in my house than fly to the moon,

0:11:140:11:18

but there's a big market back in the UK,

0:11:180:11:21

particularly for this kind of colour.

0:11:210:11:22

This tangerine you see everywhere at the moment.

0:11:220:11:25

As a consequence there's going to be a profit in there somewhere.

0:11:250:11:29

I've just paid 10 Euro, so just a tad under £10.

0:11:290:11:33

There has to be a profit in it. So what I'm going to do is buy yet more.

0:11:330:11:39

So, there's method to the big man's madness and true to his word,

0:11:390:11:43

he snaps up these kitsch lights for just under £50.

0:11:430:11:46

Remember - when buying electrical items abroad,

0:11:480:11:51

you will need a qualified UK electrician to rewire them.

0:11:510:11:54

Elsewhere in the market, Kate has picked up a bookcase.

0:12:010:12:05

It seems as though she's not its only fan.

0:12:050:12:07

This is absolutely riddled with woodworm.

0:12:100:12:14

Now it's very easy to treat this.

0:12:140:12:16

Go to your local hardware store, buy some woodworm killer

0:12:160:12:20

and douse it thoroughly, pushing the liquid into all the holes.

0:12:200:12:23

Leave it for a good 48 hours and then do it all again.

0:12:230:12:26

And hopefully you'll get rid of those worms.

0:12:260:12:29

Now because the holes are in the back I'm not too concerned about

0:12:290:12:33

them, because this will be pushed up against a wall.

0:12:330:12:36

Now, for 20 Euros, that's just under £20 for you and me,

0:12:360:12:41

I don't think I can go wrong.

0:12:410:12:43

And this little gem might just give Jonty Hearnden a run for his money.

0:12:430:12:48

Well, that's almost £20 out of Kate's kitty

0:12:480:12:51

and another potential profit-turning opportunity.

0:12:510:12:54

And she adds the her haul by snapping up this leather satchel

0:12:540:12:58

and bag for just under £30.

0:12:580:13:01

Jonty, though, is a man on a buying mission.

0:13:060:13:09

He's splashed over £330 on his latest buy.

0:13:090:13:13

Just look at this just look at it.

0:13:150:13:17

How about this for a fabulous shape? Look at that domed top that we've got there. Wonderful.

0:13:180:13:23

Look at these wonderful...

0:13:230:13:25

these outrageously good-quality bevelled mirrors on the front here.

0:13:250:13:30

It's fabulous. Ready to go.

0:13:300:13:32

The only problem I do have here is we've got the marking here.

0:13:320:13:35

I think I can disguise that.

0:13:350:13:37

I have a lock issue. The lock doesn't work very well at all.

0:13:370:13:41

I think that's more of a key issue rather than the lock itself.

0:13:410:13:46

Apart from that it's fabulously wonderful value for money.

0:13:460:13:50

To the right person, I can see this easily selling for around £800.

0:13:500:13:55

If I sell it to the trade it will be a little bit less.

0:13:550:13:59

But, hey how about that?

0:13:590:14:01

There's bagfuls of profit in it, wardrobes full of profit.

0:14:010:14:05

If the Hitman's right about the wardrobe holding a big profit,

0:14:050:14:09

then Kate will need to find some heavy-hitting items of her own.

0:14:090:14:12

So, it's time to find out who's on course to be today's top trump

0:14:120:14:16

and who's the joker in the pack.

0:14:160:14:18

Both the Hitman and Absolute Bliss

0:14:190:14:21

started with £750 of their own money.

0:14:210:14:25

In his search for fine furniture Jonty has managed to spend

0:14:250:14:29

just over £485, leaving him with almost £265 to spend.

0:14:290:14:34

Kate, on the other hand, has parted with just under £85,

0:14:340:14:38

leaving her a little over £665 in her kitty.

0:14:380:14:42

So, both our experts still have plenty of money to play with.

0:14:450:14:49

And Absolute Bliss is shopping with a vengeance.

0:14:490:14:52

One shelf and coat rack

0:14:520:14:56

or hat rack,

0:14:560:14:59

but lovely wrought iron brackets.

0:14:590:15:01

These are really nicely cast with leafy scrolls on them.

0:15:010:15:06

Horrible red colour. I don't think I'd want that in my house,

0:15:060:15:10

but painted in a lovely heritage duck egg blue,

0:15:100:15:14

or even light green, I think you could add £50 to that.

0:15:140:15:18

For 20 Euros, just under £20 to you and me,

0:15:180:15:23

thank you very much.

0:15:230:15:24

Making a profit may be the aim of the game,

0:15:240:15:27

but to make money you have to spend money.

0:15:270:15:29

With over £600 still in her pocket the First Lady is playing a dangerous game.

0:15:290:15:36

So, with time rapidly ticking away,

0:15:360:15:38

she really needs to get her skates on if she's going to get herself the best chance of winning this contest.

0:15:380:15:44

-Monsieur?

-Bonjour.

0:15:460:15:48

Hello. You speak English. Great.

0:15:480:15:51

-A little bit.

-I like this.

0:15:510:15:53

-How much is this?

-180.

0:15:530:15:55

That sounds quite a lot. I like it because it's tall.

0:15:550:15:58

It's a good long one.

0:15:580:16:00

Folding door cabinet. Really nice.

0:16:000:16:03

Where did it come from?

0:16:030:16:06

-From the taxman.

-From the taxman?

0:16:060:16:07

It's nice to get a bit back from the taxman,

0:16:070:16:10

or at least have something useful.

0:16:100:16:12

I notice there's a bit of damage just around here, just slightly.

0:16:120:16:16

-It's old as well, so...

-What kind of age?

0:16:160:16:19

I think 1950s.

0:16:190:16:21

It's still good condition.

0:16:210:16:25

It is. Very useful,

0:16:250:16:26

and it's got a nice contemporary look that people like these days.

0:16:260:16:31

Popular these days.

0:16:310:16:32

180.

0:16:320:16:35

Have you got anything architectural?

0:16:350:16:37

I have a mirror there which is popular at the moment.

0:16:370:16:40

Everybody looks...

0:16:400:16:43

for them.

0:16:430:16:44

A window. Where's this from?

0:16:440:16:47

-An old factory.

-I like this.

0:16:470:16:49

It's really, if you sand blast it or scrub it, polish it up,

0:16:490:16:54

put glass in, mirrors in, it's wonderful.

0:16:540:16:58

That would look lovely with mirrors in.

0:16:580:17:01

How much is this?

0:17:010:17:03

-150.

-150?

0:17:030:17:04

And I've got to get the work done.

0:17:040:17:07

What deal can you do if I take the two, the window as well?

0:17:070:17:10

It's a sunny day. I take them home for you.

0:17:110:17:14

I know.

0:17:140:17:16

250 is the best.

0:17:160:17:17

-250?

-It's a popular item.

0:17:170:17:20

-You spot the good things.

-Can you go...

0:17:200:17:22

I mean I would like 150 for the two.

0:17:220:17:25

150? No, no, no.

0:17:250:17:27

-I tell you what, 180.

-The death?

0:17:300:17:34

Yes.

0:17:340:17:36

-180.

-OK.

-That's fine. That's just fine. Here we go.

0:17:360:17:40

So, at just under £170 Kate's more than doubled her spending.

0:17:400:17:45

Elsewhere, Jonty seems to have fallen in love with, yes,

0:17:450:17:50

you guessed it, another piece of furniture.

0:17:500:17:52

Can you imagine just how fantastic this would look re-covered?

0:17:520:17:57

At the moment, it's covered in this, I suppose, the original fabric,

0:17:570:18:01

it's a brushed cotton and it's a raised brushed cotton,

0:18:010:18:04

because we've got the pattern that's raised on the fabric itself.

0:18:040:18:08

I think, if this is the right price, I've saved the best till last.

0:18:080:18:13

Monsieur, how much is this chair?

0:18:130:18:15

-90 Euros.

-90?

0:18:170:18:19

-What's your best? Best price for me?

-80.

-Oui, oui, oui.

0:18:200:18:22

HE SPEAKS FRENCH

0:18:220:18:25

So late 19th century, yeah.

0:18:250:18:27

-80 for you.

-80 Euros?

0:18:270:18:28

80 Euros.

0:18:280:18:30

You have a sale, sir. That's a buy.

0:18:300:18:31

Thank you, let me pay you.

0:18:310:18:34

Yes, when the Hitman sets his heart on something,

0:18:340:18:37

there's no stopping him.

0:18:370:18:38

Perfect. I have saved the best till last.

0:18:400:18:44

80 Euros! 80 Euros!

0:18:440:18:46

That's just in excess of 70 quid.

0:18:460:18:48

Kate, you missed this one.

0:18:480:18:50

As a consequence I'm definitely going to keep some money in my pocket,

0:18:500:18:54

because this chair will look amazing restored.

0:18:540:18:57

The dog won't even sit on it at the moment.

0:18:570:18:59

It's going to look fantastic.

0:18:590:19:01

# Let's get it on, baby... #

0:19:010:19:05

And, as the Hitman carries his latest conquest into the sunset,

0:19:050:19:08

it's time to bring down the curtain

0:19:080:19:10

on the buying section of today's contest

0:19:100:19:12

and find out who is our collectibles Casanova and who's unlucky in love.

0:19:120:19:17

Our experts began the day with £750 of their own money.

0:19:200:19:24

Jonty's search for furniture has seen him spend over £560,

0:19:240:19:29

leaving almost £190 unspent.

0:19:290:19:32

Despite flashing her cash at the end of the day, Kate has only parted

0:19:320:19:36

with just over £270,

0:19:360:19:38

leaving over £475 in her kitty.

0:19:380:19:42

Before they begin to make their way back across The Channel,

0:19:440:19:47

curiosity gets the better of our duelling dealers.

0:19:470:19:50

They decide to have a look at what their rival has bought.

0:19:500:19:53

-I've ended up with quite a lot in the end.

-What have we got here?

0:19:530:19:56

Well, I like my coffee set and the shelf that I'm going to paint.

0:19:560:20:00

But the piece de resistance is my window.

0:20:000:20:03

-What do you think?

-Bit of bomb damage there you've got there, Kate.

0:20:030:20:07

It is bomb damage. Did you buy that from Steptoe? I didn't see Steptoe and son here!

0:20:070:20:11

I'm even more concerned with the teddy with the hole in his heart.

0:20:110:20:15

I know. He's lost his growl.

0:20:150:20:17

-Lost his stuffing.

-What about your stuff, then?

0:20:170:20:20

You like your Dralon, Jonty.

0:20:200:20:23

That's all going to be changed.

0:20:230:20:25

I can now reveal...

0:20:250:20:27

-my tables without legs.

-I like them actually. Fair dos.

0:20:270:20:30

Just a tad over £20.

0:20:300:20:33

-That's pretty good.

-And £3,000 of work later, they could look great!

0:20:330:20:37

So, this is it. This is our collection.

0:20:370:20:39

It's going to take us a whole week to pack this up in the van.

0:20:390:20:43

But because the sun is shining I'm going to treat you to an ice cream.

0:20:430:20:46

-That sounds fantastic.

0:20:460:20:48

So, as our guys cool off with an ice cream,

0:20:480:20:51

let's look at what they've bought.

0:20:510:20:53

Kate purchased a child's deckchair,

0:20:530:20:56

a German 1950s coffee set, a book case.

0:20:560:20:59

A 1960s raffia clutch bag and leather postbag. A coat rack.

0:20:590:21:04

A Belgian taxman's filing cabinet,

0:21:040:21:08

a factory window and a cuddly toy.

0:21:080:21:11

Jonty bagged himself two 19th century chairs ripe for restoration.

0:21:110:21:15

A collection of kitsch,

0:21:150:21:17

including a table lamp, ceiling lights and a vase.

0:21:170:21:20

Two 19th century table ends

0:21:200:21:23

and a 19th century armoire.

0:21:230:21:25

So, after the fiercely-fought battle of Belgium,

0:21:280:21:33

our two intrepid experts have returned home.

0:21:330:21:35

The challenge is now to sell on their spoils of war

0:21:350:21:38

and both Kate and Jonty will be pulling out all the stops

0:21:380:21:42

to find the right buyers for all their items.

0:21:420:21:44

They're working their way through their little black books,

0:21:440:21:47

putting deals together on the phone and by e-mail.

0:21:470:21:50

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

0:21:500:21:54

no deal is truly sealed.

0:21:540:21:56

Determined to make a sale, Jonty is stepping back to a time

0:21:560:22:00

when Demis Roussos so was number one, Abigail was having a party

0:22:000:22:04

and fondue was all the rage.

0:22:040:22:06

# And it's plain to see you were meant for me, yeah

0:22:130:22:17

# I'm your toy Your 20th century boy... #

0:22:170:22:21

Yes, Put Your Money's very own 20th century boy

0:22:220:22:25

has lined up a potential buyer for his retro collection.

0:22:250:22:29

-Amanda.

-Hello.

-I've got my goodies.

-Come in.

0:22:290:22:33

Remember, Jonty's collection of kitsch, including his vase,

0:22:330:22:37

table lamp and five glass ceiling lights cost him just over £66.

0:22:370:22:41

And...voila!

0:22:410:22:45

The last. Saved the best till last.

0:22:450:22:47

What do you think?

0:22:470:22:49

Fantastic. Some great colours here.

0:22:490:22:52

Really retro green and orange. Like them.

0:22:520:22:55

What do you think about this?

0:22:550:22:56

I think these retro lights are absolutely fab.

0:22:560:22:59

I think they're fabulous.

0:22:590:23:01

I love the fact these colours have been brought in,

0:23:010:23:03

the green and the orange,

0:23:030:23:05

which are very strong for the retro thing. It's great.

0:23:050:23:08

Price wise, we're looking at £30 for the larger glass light

0:23:080:23:13

-and these smaller babies are £20 each.

-OK.

0:23:130:23:16

All right? So that's what I'm asking for those.

0:23:160:23:19

-The big vase here. That is £20.

-OK.

0:23:190:23:22

-Right. So that's that price there.

-Not too bad.

0:23:220:23:26

As I brought this out of the box, I have a little confession to make.

0:23:260:23:30

I'm very disappointed about the condition of the shade.

0:23:300:23:33

It wasn't like that when I bought it.

0:23:330:23:36

That's all happened in transit. That's what happens sometimes.

0:23:360:23:39

You bring something back in transit and it's not the way it was.

0:23:390:23:43

It's happened to me many times.

0:23:430:23:44

It is battered, isn't it?

0:23:440:23:47

It will be a tough one, the lampshade, I'm afraid.

0:23:470:23:50

It looks like Jonty will have to use all his guile and ingenuity

0:23:500:23:54

to sell his retro collection.

0:23:540:23:55

The damage the lamp has suffered in transit is causing Amanda concern.

0:23:550:24:00

Can the Hitman seal the deal?

0:24:000:24:02

In Herefordshire Kate's research and some careful planning

0:24:030:24:07

might be about to pay off.

0:24:070:24:09

Not only has she tracked down a potential buyer for the coat hooks,

0:24:090:24:13

she's also given them a complete overhaul.

0:24:130:24:16

-Hello, Sally.

-Hello, Kate. How are you?

0:24:160:24:18

-How are you?

-All right, thanks.

0:24:180:24:20

-The weather's on the turn out there.

-Summer's gone, I think.

0:24:200:24:23

Let me put that down.

0:24:230:24:25

What do you think? I've brought it to show you.

0:24:250:24:27

-Very nice. Nice colour.

-I've actually painted it myself.

0:24:270:24:32

It came from a flea market in Belgium

0:24:320:24:34

and it was this funny garish red colour,

0:24:340:24:36

that you can see just on the back there.

0:24:360:24:38

So not a very commercial colour.

0:24:380:24:40

So I've painted it this lime white colour.

0:24:400:24:45

-It's almost ivory.

-It is. It's quite a good quality paint, so it's come up well. The finish is nice.

0:24:450:24:50

These nice brackets are like the old cisterns, aren't they?

0:24:500:24:53

I thought that was nice.

0:24:530:24:54

I took those off to paint it, so they are exactly as they were.

0:24:540:24:58

And the hooks have got a nice little bit of wear on them to give it a nice antiqued look.

0:24:580:25:02

And a nice hat rack on the top.

0:25:020:25:04

Yes, you put your coats on there and your hats on the top.

0:25:040:25:06

Very nice detail.

0:25:060:25:07

Is it the sort of thing you could sell?

0:25:070:25:10

I think it would go with my garden bits at the back.

0:25:100:25:13

Well I'm looking for about £75. How does that sound?

0:25:130:25:17

Ooh.

0:25:170:25:18

-I think I could do £70.

-All right, brilliant. £70.

-Thank you.

0:25:200:25:25

So, a little bit of hard graft,

0:25:250:25:26

but the paint brush has secured Kate a sale.

0:25:260:25:28

£70 for the coat hooks gives her a profit of just over £50.

0:25:280:25:34

That went really well. It's a nice little profit for me

0:25:340:25:37

and it will look great in Sally's new shop.

0:25:370:25:39

That's a good deal for the First Lady of antiques.

0:25:390:25:42

Jonty though, is also working hard to secure a sale.

0:25:420:25:46

So, you couldn't sell that with the shade?

0:25:460:25:49

Not easily.

0:25:490:25:51

I'm not sure that I can even really repair it.

0:25:510:25:54

Yes, it sound as though the Hitman has his work cut out here.

0:25:560:25:59

Kate, on the other hand, is aiming to seal a deal for the book case

0:25:590:26:03

she paid just under £19 for.

0:26:030:26:06

Here we are, Sandra, here's the book case.

0:26:070:26:11

Although today I think it has a contemporary look about it.

0:26:110:26:14

You could use it for CDs or little knick knacks.

0:26:140:26:17

Whatever you like, really. What do you think?

0:26:170:26:19

Yes, I think so. It's, you know, it's a practical piece.

0:26:190:26:23

It's got all these little pigeonholes

0:26:230:26:25

which you could use for whatever you wanted really.

0:26:250:26:27

It's a bit of a funny looking thing.

0:26:270:26:30

It is a bit strange.

0:26:300:26:33

Originally, perhaps, these little clips on the front

0:26:330:26:36

would suggest there was a pole or curtain or a screen of some sort.

0:26:360:26:40

Without that, it takes on a bit more of a contemporary look really.

0:26:400:26:44

It's almost sort of Heals in type.

0:26:440:26:46

I agree with that. Entirely. Yes.

0:26:460:26:49

Is it something, do you think you could sell?

0:26:490:26:52

I think so. What sort of price were you thinking of?

0:26:520:26:56

Well, I'm looking for about £70.

0:26:560:26:58

Um, well I think that's a little bit high.

0:27:000:27:03

How about £60?

0:27:030:27:05

-£60 is fine.

-Is that all right?

0:27:050:27:07

-Great.

-Lovely.

-Thank you very much.

0:27:070:27:08

Thank you very much. If you'd like to come with me.

0:27:080:27:11

And another one bites the dust.

0:27:110:27:13

Kate's on blistering form today

0:27:130:27:14

as the book case turns a profit of over £40.

0:27:140:27:18

She's on a roll and is hoping to bag more money

0:27:180:27:21

with the child's deckchair which cost her the grand sum

0:27:210:27:25

of £5 at the Belgian market.

0:27:250:27:27

Let me shut the door.

0:27:270:27:28

It's nice and sunny out there.

0:27:280:27:30

I can see the child's chairs already.

0:27:300:27:32

Yes. Well. I'm afraid they're everywhere, Kate.

0:27:320:27:35

I love that one.

0:27:350:27:37

Will she be able to add her chair to her contact's collection and leave with some profit in her pocket?

0:27:370:27:43

I've just got back from Brussels.

0:27:430:27:46

It was a really good trip.

0:27:460:27:47

You know what it's like, shopping at a flea market abroad,

0:27:470:27:50

-you never know what you'll see.

-No. Absolutely.

0:27:500:27:53

So, I saw this little chair and I just thought, "Brenda"!

0:27:530:27:56

I thought of your fantastic collection of little chairs.

0:27:560:27:59

I mean, it's a bit of fun really.

0:27:590:28:01

I don't know how much age it's got to it really.

0:28:010:28:04

Probably not that old, 10, 20 years at the most.

0:28:040:28:07

Maybe more. '50s or '60s.

0:28:070:28:09

-Maybe.

-It's a fun thing, isn't it?

0:28:090:28:11

It's a little deckchair. You could almost use it in the garden

0:28:110:28:14

for the grandchildren if you like.

0:28:140:28:16

I certainly haven't got one like that and I would love to have it.

0:28:160:28:19

I think it's lovely.

0:28:190:28:21

-I was thinking around £25. How does that sound?

-Great.

0:28:210:28:25

Entirely reasonable.

0:28:250:28:27

Excellent. I've brought it to the right place then?

0:28:270:28:30

You certainly did.

0:28:300:28:32

Thank you.

0:28:320:28:34

That's more profit for Absolute Bliss.

0:28:340:28:36

It looks like she bought well in Belgium.

0:28:360:28:39

Jonty isn't a man to crack under pressure, though.

0:28:390:28:42

His collection of kitsch might not all be in tip top condition

0:28:420:28:46

but he's pulling out all the stops to sell it.

0:28:460:28:49

That was £20. But I'm happy to take a tenner for that.

0:28:490:28:52

So collectively, where are we then?

0:28:520:28:55

Let's do that. That's two, four, six, eight. £110.

0:28:550:29:00

£140 all together.

0:29:000:29:04

All right. You've got a deal.

0:29:050:29:07

The Hitman's back in the groove

0:29:070:29:09

and back in today's competition

0:29:090:29:12

with a very respectful profit from his collection of kitsch.

0:29:120:29:15

That is amazing.

0:29:150:29:17

I've sold all my kitsch items.

0:29:170:29:19

Sold all those lamps, including the tangerine lamp.

0:29:190:29:23

Even that was a teensy-weensy small profit.

0:29:230:29:26

That's what I call groovy, baby.

0:29:260:29:29

With both our experts desperate to win today's contest, the profits are rolling in.

0:29:290:29:35

Jonty has decided that instead of refurbishing his 19th-century table ends,

0:29:350:29:39

he'll try and make a quick sale to one of his London contacts.

0:29:390:29:42

In Hay-on-Wye, Miss Bliss is hoping to cash in on the leather post bag

0:29:470:29:52

and raffia clutch bag that cost her just over £28.

0:29:520:29:55

Hi, Stuart. Hello, Kate, nice to see you.

0:30:020:30:05

-And you, how are things?

-Busy.

0:30:050:30:07

Good. Great. Well, look,

0:30:070:30:08

I've brought you something that might be just your cup of tea.

0:30:080:30:12

-I know you sell quite a lot of leather bags.

-Yes.

0:30:120:30:15

This one actually came from Belgium.

0:30:150:30:17

I bought it in a flea market over there.

0:30:170:30:20

I thought it was a great size.

0:30:200:30:22

Because you could fit a laptop in there, if you wanted to.

0:30:220:30:26

Or, at a push, you could use it as a little overnight bag.

0:30:260:30:29

And inside I've noticed you've got, on a strap here,

0:30:290:30:33

original ruitertassen.

0:30:330:30:36

-Now I think that means it's German.

-Yes, German.

0:30:360:30:38

And it means literally a sort of rider's bag,

0:30:380:30:41

or a courier's bag, if you like.

0:30:410:30:42

So I think it's an old postbag for the mail.

0:30:420:30:45

-Yes.

-It's that sort of size.

0:30:450:30:48

-Excellent condition.

-It is isn't it?

0:30:480:30:50

I've got this one as well, which is probably more Carol's cup of tea.

0:30:500:30:54

-It would be, yes.

-Fifties, I'd say.

0:30:540:30:57

-A bit glitzy.

-What kind of money are you looking for?

0:30:570:30:59

Well, I'm looking for £30 on that. Because it's in such nice condition.

0:30:590:31:06

And 60 for the leather bag.

0:31:060:31:08

-I can do 30 on this one.

-Yes?

0:31:080:31:10

-I can't do 60 on that.

-OK. What do you think, then?

0:31:100:31:14

I can allow you 50 on that one.

0:31:140:31:15

All right, I'm happy with that.

0:31:150:31:17

Let's do 80 for the two.

0:31:170:31:19

-Shall we call it a deal then?

-I think that's a deal. Brilliant.

0:31:190:31:22

That's more than £50 profit for Kate,

0:31:220:31:25

and she extends her lead even further when she sells

0:31:250:31:28

her 60s coffee set, making a profit of over £35.

0:31:280:31:32

£50? Yes, that's good for me.

0:31:340:31:36

-OK, then.

-Brilliant, thank you very much indeed.

0:31:360:31:38

Hay-on-Wye has been a profitable stomping ground for Kate.

0:31:380:31:42

In the capital, has the Hitman's gamble

0:31:420:31:44

of trying to make a quick sale with his legless table ends paid off?

0:31:440:31:48

Hey-hey.

0:31:480:31:50

Quick sale. Talk about a quick sale.

0:31:500:31:52

£90 I've just got for those pair of tables.

0:31:520:31:55

That's roughly 70 quid profit, just like that. Kate, are you watching?

0:31:550:32:00

Don't buy earrings, buy furniture, you just can't go wrong.

0:32:000:32:04

Now remember, Mr Hearnden paid almost £24 for those table ends.

0:32:040:32:08

Selling them for £90 has given his profit pot a much needed boost.

0:32:080:32:13

It's been a roller coaster ride for Jonty today.

0:32:150:32:19

He's still trailing in Kate's wake,

0:32:190:32:21

and his position isn't improved when his large wardrobe

0:32:210:32:25

sells at auction for just £250.

0:32:250:32:27

At 250 I'm selling, all done? Sold at 250.

0:32:270:32:30

With commission, the Hitman has lost almost £100 on that sale

0:32:300:32:34

and at the moment

0:32:340:32:35

there's no doubt about who's the selling sorcerer,

0:32:350:32:38

and who's the lowly apprentice.

0:32:380:32:40

The Hitman has sold £480 worth of antiques but, having taken a big

0:32:420:32:47

loss on the wardrobe, he's got just over £40 of profit in his kitty.

0:32:470:32:52

Kate, on the other hand, is setting a blistering pace.

0:32:520:32:55

She's sold items totalling almost £300

0:32:550:32:58

and has made profits of just over £200.

0:32:580:33:01

So, as we enter the final furlong of today's challenge,

0:33:030:33:05

Kate is out in front and has three items left to sell.

0:33:050:33:09

But Jonty has got his two fabulous chairs left, so all is not lost

0:33:090:33:13

as our profit hunting pair hit the phones in search of their next deal.

0:33:130:33:18

-Hi, is that Rita?

-Yes, it is.

-Rita, it's Jonty here.

0:33:200:33:23

Yeah, I know you've got all sorts of goodies, yeah. I know.

0:33:280:33:31

# ..Leave me hanging on the telephone... #

0:33:310:33:35

Hi, Lynne, it's Jonty calling.

0:33:350:33:37

# ..Don't leave me hanging... #

0:33:370:33:40

See you soon. Bye.

0:33:400:33:42

The Hitman and Miss Bliss might be putting together

0:33:450:33:49

more deals on the phone,

0:33:490:33:50

but until money has changed hands, no deal is secure.

0:33:500:33:53

After talking to a potential buyer,

0:33:530:33:55

Kate thinks she might have found a home for Pierre the bear,

0:33:550:33:59

who cost her just £19.

0:33:590:34:00

Will his new board and lodgings give her a profit?

0:34:000:34:03

Well, Pierre, you're in very distinguished company.

0:34:050:34:08

Sue, this is just a mind blowing collection.

0:34:080:34:11

How many have you got in total?

0:34:110:34:12

Altogether I've got about 2,500.

0:34:120:34:16

-But that includes more modern ones right back to older ones.

-Right.

0:34:160:34:21

Well, Pierre,

0:34:210:34:23

I think you're in very distinguished company,

0:34:230:34:26

but I'm not sure you're quite in this league, old boy.

0:34:260:34:29

Is he a bear that you'd want in your collection?

0:34:290:34:32

-Well, I think that I've fallen in love with Pierre.

-OK.

0:34:320:34:37

Yes, the finer details of this adoption

0:34:370:34:39

still need to be ironed out.

0:34:390:34:41

But, with Kate's contact losing her heart to Pierre the bear, the pressure is building on the Hitman.

0:34:410:34:47

Jonty, though, thrives under pressure, and he's hoping one of his favourite restorers will be able

0:34:470:34:53

to breathe new life into his two chairs and give him a good price for the work that's needed.

0:34:530:34:58

Would £100 be OK?

0:35:000:35:02

That'll be fine for you. I'll get on with them for you.

0:35:020:35:05

-Simon, you're a star.

-We'll sort them out today, if we can.

0:35:050:35:08

Really? I can't wait to see them transformed.

0:35:080:35:10

-Because they're going to be fabulous. Wonderful. Great, mate. See you later.

-God bless.

0:35:100:35:14

As he's on a mission to raise as much money as possible for charity,

0:35:140:35:17

Mr H has got a great deal out of Simon to re-cover his chairs.

0:35:170:35:21

But he's trailing in his rival's wake.

0:35:210:35:24

Kate is trying to seal a deal for Pierre the bear.

0:35:240:35:28

Can she agree a price with his potential new owner?

0:35:280:35:31

So what do you think?

0:35:310:35:33

I'd like to offer you £45.

0:35:330:35:36

That sounds great. You're a very lucky bear, Pierre.

0:35:360:35:39

But, the bears have been thinking about things.

0:35:390:35:44

-And they've emptied their money box.

-Right.

0:35:440:35:47

And they put it in a purse ready.

0:35:470:35:50

And they would like to add £5 more.

0:35:500:35:54

-£5 more, Pierre.

-For you, Pierre.

0:35:540:35:57

What do you say, Pierre?

0:35:570:35:58

Don't tell me that I don't bring you to the best places. Thank you, Sue.

0:35:580:36:03

Another sale, and more money for Kate.

0:36:030:36:06

Sue gave her £45 for Pierre,

0:36:060:36:08

and as she's on a quest to raise as

0:36:080:36:10

much money as possible for charity, the bears gave her an extra fiver.

0:36:100:36:14

Aah.

0:36:140:36:15

Well, I don't think Pierre could be happier.

0:36:150:36:18

Sue seemed delighted, and I've got a tidy profit.

0:36:180:36:21

But one thing is for certain,

0:36:210:36:23

I think he's going to be quite cosy in there.

0:36:230:36:26

So, with Pierre luxuriating in his new home,

0:36:280:36:31

Kate can press on with her selling.

0:36:310:36:33

She's taken her factory window to a salvage yard and is hoping to reclaim a substantial profit.

0:36:330:36:39

I don't think it's in too bad condition. No cracks.

0:36:420:36:45

A little bit of marks from the casting,

0:36:450:36:47

but I don't think it's actually corrosion.

0:36:470:36:50

I think it's just casting marks.

0:36:500:36:53

Right. So, although it's rusted, it's not cracked or anything?

0:36:530:36:57

No, it's a good raw condition, as it were.

0:36:570:36:59

So is this something you think you could sell?

0:36:590:37:02

I might be able to do something with it, yes.

0:37:020:37:05

It all depends on money, that's the bottom line.

0:37:050:37:08

Well, I'm looking for about 150.

0:37:080:37:12

Bit too much, really, for us.

0:37:140:37:16

-Because of the cost of having it blasted, really.

-Right, sure.

0:37:160:37:20

Kate is doing her level best to strike a deal for her window.

0:37:200:37:23

In the capital, there's good news for Jonty about his chairs.

0:37:230:37:27

-Hello?

-Hello, Jonty, it's Simon, how are you?

0:37:270:37:31

Simon the magician! How are you?

0:37:310:37:34

I'm very good. Some news.

0:37:340:37:36

I've finished one of the chairs you got in Belgium.

0:37:360:37:39

Yes?

0:37:390:37:40

The printed linen. But I've had a bit of interest on it,

0:37:400:37:43

is there any chance you can come over and sell it to the fella?

0:37:430:37:47

Absolutely, well done. Imminently?

0:37:470:37:50

Yes, whenever you like.

0:37:500:37:53

-If you could pop over and we could do that for you.

-Fantastic.

0:37:530:37:57

I love you, I love you, I love you.

0:37:570:37:59

I know you do.

0:37:590:38:01

OK, mate. Thanks so much.

0:38:010:38:03

-See you when you can.

-OK, bye.

0:38:030:38:05

Brilliant.

0:38:050:38:07

Yes, this is good news for Jonty.

0:38:070:38:10

He's miles behind in today's competition

0:38:100:38:13

and his chances of winning rest on his ability to get a fabulous profit on his two chairs.

0:38:130:38:18

In Herefordshire, Kate is closing in on yet another deal.

0:38:180:38:23

OK. What could you do?

0:38:230:38:26

-£100?

-No, I need a bit more than that.

0:38:260:38:29

What about I meet you in the middle, say 125?

0:38:290:38:33

-Yes, go on then.

-Yes? Happy with that?

0:38:330:38:36

-Thank you very much indeed.

-Deal.

0:38:360:38:38

Kate was a long way out of her comfort zone buying that reclaimed window,

0:38:380:38:42

but our plucky expert has still managed

0:38:420:38:46

to turn a profit of more than £30.

0:38:460:38:48

Well I've sold my window.

0:38:480:38:49

It hasn't given me my biggest profit, but it's still a profit.

0:38:490:38:53

And you never know, it might just make the difference against Jonty.

0:38:530:38:56

Well, Kate's right. Every penny counts.

0:38:560:38:59

But it's not all good news for Miss Bliss because,

0:38:590:39:02

despite her best efforts,

0:39:020:39:03

she's had to sell her filing cabinet for a loss of more than £25.

0:39:030:39:07

On the positive side, though, she's sold all her items,

0:39:070:39:10

and is way out in front of the Hitman,

0:39:110:39:13

whose hopes rest on his two chairs.

0:39:130:39:15

Jonty paid just over £140 for the chairs in Belgium,

0:39:150:39:19

and has parted with another £100 to have them re-covered.

0:39:190:39:23

If he's going to win, he needs to make a huge profit.

0:39:230:39:26

Luckily, he's got a potential buyer for the recovered green chair,

0:39:260:39:30

and they've sent someone to buy it on their behalf.

0:39:300:39:33

As long as the price is right.

0:39:330:39:35

-Stuart, nice to meet you.

-Nice to meet you, Jon.

0:39:350:39:37

Simon gave me a call and told me you were interested in this lovely chair.

0:39:370:39:41

I am indeed.

0:39:410:39:42

What do you think? I think it's fantastic now it's been covered in this beautiful linen.

0:39:420:39:47

I understand that all of the pattern on this chair is hand printed.

0:39:470:39:50

It looks like it's been well upholstered. A good shape.

0:39:500:39:53

I actually bought this chair from a market in Belgium,

0:39:530:39:56

-hence the reason why it's got chocolate stains.

-Marvellous.

0:39:560:40:01

I like the shape. It's got a good firm seat.

0:40:010:40:04

Nice deep seat as well.

0:40:040:40:06

That will do the job.

0:40:060:40:09

So, the price for the chair is 375, and that's not £3.75.

0:40:090:40:13

Well, Jonty is aiming high. But, if he wants to beat Kate, he needs to.

0:40:130:40:17

We'll find out very shortly if he was able to sell his chairs

0:40:170:40:20

for a big enough profit, because it's time to reveal who is today's

0:40:200:40:25

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

0:40:250:40:28

Remember, both our canny competitors

0:40:280:40:30

could spend up to £750 of their own money.

0:40:300:40:33

Jonty spent just over £560 on antiques, plus a further £100

0:40:330:40:38

to have his chairs re-upholstered, making a total spend of over £660.

0:40:380:40:45

Kate Absolute Bliss spent a little over £270

0:40:450:40:48

on her foray into the European market.

0:40:480:40:51

It's been a fierce battle.

0:40:520:40:54

And to reveal the final result of today's contest,

0:40:540:40:57

we've called Miss Bliss and Mr H to the bright lights of London.

0:40:570:41:01

-Hi, Jonty.

-Kate. Fresh from the battlefield.

0:41:010:41:04

-Yes.

-How was it for you?

0:41:040:41:06

-Do you know, pretty difficult.

-Was it?

0:41:060:41:08

Yeah. Because it was so contained,

0:41:080:41:10

and you had to really buy what was there

0:41:100:41:13

and I didn't really take a fancy to much until quite late on.

0:41:130:41:16

Right. There was a bit of a mixed bag there, but you're never really quite sure with markets like that.

0:41:160:41:22

And the whole thing in Euros,

0:41:220:41:23

my maths is hopeless, so there was a sort of added difficulty.

0:41:230:41:27

Yes. And the language.

0:41:270:41:28

Right. Time to find out what we made, or how little we made!

0:41:280:41:33

-Ready?

-This was a tricky one.

0:41:330:41:35

-After three. One, two, three...

-Go!

0:41:350:41:37

Look at that. That's very good, Jonty. I think.

0:41:390:41:43

That's not too bad.

0:41:430:41:46

We've done pretty well, both of us, actually.

0:41:460:41:49

-Another hammering.

-It looks like it's lunch on me again.

0:41:500:41:53

-Kate, you're becoming an expensive girl.

-This is all right, isn't it?

0:41:530:41:56

Well, that's an incredible result. And what a turnaround!

0:41:560:42:00

Kate set the early pace, and was out right in front to the death.

0:42:000:42:03

So how on earth did Jonty almost double Kate's total profit?

0:42:030:42:08

I can do an extra £20.

0:42:080:42:10

Go on then. You've got a sale.

0:42:100:42:13

Jonty sold his re-covered green chair for a whopping £320

0:42:130:42:19

and his red chair for another £350,

0:42:190:42:22

giving him a massive profit of almost £430.

0:42:220:42:26

Kate, big commiserations.

0:42:260:42:28

Our challenge is very much The Beauty And The Beast.

0:42:280:42:31

I'm afraid the beast won today.

0:42:310:42:32

I am quite disappointed that I've lost today, but I'm still really

0:42:320:42:36

pleased that I've managed to raise a good couple of hundred pounds for my good cause.

0:42:360:42:41

And pleased you should be, Kate, as you've both raised fabulous amounts for your chosen charities.

0:42:410:42:46

The money that I've just raised today will all go to Helen & Douglas House,

0:42:460:42:52

which is a children and young adults' hospice, based in Oxford.

0:42:520:42:57

I'm raising money for the Alzheimer's Society in Herefordshire.

0:42:570:43:00

So it's victory for the Hitman,

0:43:000:43:02

but hold on to your hats because tomorrow Kate will be looking

0:43:020:43:06

to wrestle the crown away from Jonty when our profit hunting pair will be locking horns again

Two experts from the world of antiques go head-to-head in a competition to raise money for a charity of their choice. They are challenged to buy antiques and collectibles in a different location each day, and at the end of the week the duelling dealers compete to raise the most money at a special one-off event. Once the deals are done, one expert will be crowned the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

Jonty Hearnden and Kate Bliss turn a day trip to Belgium into a battle of the buyers, competing to raise the most money for their chosen charities.
