We've seen them on TV, but how will the country's favourite antiques experts fare
when they're challenged to make a profit with their own cash?
The joy of car boots.
From car boot sales to auction houses, our experts will be re-creating
some of their real life deals as they go head-to-head
and try to make the most money for their chosen charities.
-Fondle without fear.
-Wait till you hear about this one.
The challenge to our experts is clear -
dealers, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
Today's distinguished dealers are collectables connoisseur
Paul "Mr Morecambe" Hayes and the irrepressible Mark "Franksy" Franks.
Franksy has been in the trade man and boy and is always on the lookout for a bargain.
I bought a Regency writing table for £60, sold it at auction for £8,500.
It weren't a bad day's work!
Mark's no-nonsense approach and determination to win have served him well, whether it be trading
trash to cash, or hunting out hidden treasures on Car Booty.
His opponent today is a second generation antiques dealer
who first started buying and selling whilst he was still at school.
Since then he has grown up to be a well-respected expert and still has his finger on the pulse.
People always ask me what should they be buying now that will be collectable in the future
and really the only answer you can give is quality.
Absolute quality. If you buy the best example of anything you get, it will always have a value.
Paul can regularly be found hunting for Cash In The Attic, or transforming Trash To Cash.
Shame one's not big enough for Mark Franks. We could throw away the key.
So we have our experts, they have the knowledge, the contacts
and a fierce desire to win.
Mark and Paul knew they would be facing a special final mission and it's time for us to look at
the moment they opened their envelopes as we discover exactly what that mission is.
You want to have a word with your postman, this came for you this morning.
She leaves all the bills next door!
"Mark and Paul, your challenge today is to spend up to £1,000..."
right, easy - "of your own money on antiques.
"You must then resell your purchases with the aim of making as much profit as possible.
"The winner is the expert who makes the most cash."
Right, OK. "This is your showdown," it says here.
"You can buy whatever you like, wherever you like,
"but you must sell your items at a special one-off event.
-I'm going to need it. That's got the brain ticking.
You know what? I can't hang around down here.
I'm going to go up north where I'm among friends.
-No offence. See you later.
So in today's final showdown challenge, Mark and Paul can spend up to
£1,000 each on antiques from which they must turn a profit for their chosen charities at a one-off event.
So what plans are afoot to win the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is showdown?
One of my little passions is vintage cars and motorbikes.
At the end of the day, so long as it's old and I can make a profit, then fair dinkum.
I'm going to go to Kempton Park Racecourse and try and buy some vintage motorbikes and I'm going
to scour sweet shop windows, newspapers and magazines and try and buy a vintage car.
And hopefully if I get enough stuff together I'm off to Beaulieu to sell it. Let's see how we get on.
Fingers definitely crossed.
I think afternoon tea would be the best idea.
Maybe charge an entrance fee for that. A bit of a raffle.
Maybe a bit of a charity auction and things to sell.
And I think the more bites of the cherry you have the better.
Or the more slurps of the tea in that case.
So Mr Morecambe and Franksy have very different ideas for their special one-off events.
Pretty much everyone they try to do deals with will be aware that they are on a mission to raise as
much money as possible for their charities and Franksy and Mr Hayes will be doing everything in their
power to persuade people to give them their best
possible prices when they buy and sell the items that they hope will drive them to victory.
The Paul-tea-tastic extravaganza will be held at one
of the country's oldest surviving Art Deco hotels, which just happens to be in his home town of Morecambe.
Mark, on the other hand, will be pursuing his passion and need for speed by hunting out classic
vehicles and selling them on at Beaulieu, one of the country's leading motor shows.
And he's going to be doing most of his shopping at the Kempton
auto-jumble on the outskirts of the capital.
# I'm so tired of crying and off on the road again
# I'm on the road again... #
So Put Your Money's wild one sets out on a road trip around the market
and with this much on offer, Mark spots a potential purchase.
So come on, then, where did it come from, how long have you had it?
I've had it about four-and-a-half-years.
I bought it as a restoration project and then I found out how much
the insurance was likely to be on it and tended to lose interest.
So it's just been sat in my garage
until now I decided it is time to go.
-Does it run?
-Oh, yes, it runs.
-Come on, then, let's hear it go.
-Where's the key?
-There's the key.
That's not a key. That's a switch.
HE REVS THE ENGINE
Sounds lovely. Is it a...
1963 250 AJS?
It is indeed, yes. Well done.
Is it MOT-ed, is it taxed? Anything like that?
No, it's been off the road since the 1980s,
stored in a garage, unused, but loved.
Here's the big question. How much is it?
I'm going to buy that off you. £400, you've got yourself a deal.
So Mark's got his motor running and he is heading out onto what he hopes will be the highway
Running like a dream. It's a bit more exciting than a bit of china, isn't it?
AJS started around about the turn of the century, 1900, they even made cars.
The company had been bought out in the 1930s.
This was produced in 1963, it is a 250 four-stroke engine.
This bike is 45-years-old, it's in great condition, it starts on the button and it's a dream.
But I'm out of petrol.
Mark's passion for pistons is keeping him firmly on track.
BSA trials bike? Not for me.
With Franksy hunting out vintage vehicles and his rival planning
the afternoon tea event of the year, I think it's fair to say these two are truly an odd couple.
In one corner we have the clean-cut and debonair Mr Morecambe.
In the other corner
it is our no-nonsense boy, Mark Franksy Franks.
They're both desperate to win, but which of our odd couple will emerge
victorious from today's contest?
As it's their showdown, our dynamic duo can buy whatever they like from wherever they like and in
a previous Put Your Money Where Your Mouth is challenge, Paul visited a car boot sale in Arundel in Sussex
and with his showdown in mind he kept an eye out for items for his afternoon tea event.
Now do you know what? This job never ceases to amaze me.
I have been coming to car boot sales for about 20 years now and I've never seen one of these before.
It is a fantastic early Victorian print.
Nothing really special there, but look at the subject.
It's a very early game of football.
Isn't that amazing?
It dates from 1864.
I don't know how long football's been around, but this must be right at the origins of the game.
This is an extremely unusual item.
It's an old engraving. So this is a print, it's not a real painting.
And this has been hand-tinted, it's been nicely framed.
It's not the correct sort of frame.
The gentleman's asking £100 for this. I think it's a complete bargain.
I think this is the perfect thing I could perhaps raffle off, or have an auction.
Or just put a price on it. I think there's a great subject.
There is a bit of leeway. It's a game of two halves at the end of the day and it's back of the net! Come on!
Back of the net indeed. Paul managed to pick up the print for £100.
But he wasn't finished at the boot sale and quickly clocked up another buy.
You know, I just love Art Deco.
The whole style was developed in the 1920s and there are a couple of key facts to look for.
I always think of the Empire State Building,
the use of geometry, if you look at the way this is stepped, and the effect, and then stylised shapes.
You've got these semi-elliptical shapes done in chrome
and chrome again was a big feature of the Art Deco period.
What a cracking piece!
These tend to turn up on their own, and these side pieces get missing.
So the whole thing's complete.
All I've got to do now is find out how much it is.
How much is your clock set here?
-And is it working?
You have got your pendulum, your key and you have got yourself a deal.
All right. I'll have that. Thank you very much, sir.
Paul bagged two items at the boot sale.
In order to maximise his profits, he'll be raffling one
and auctioning the other at his afternoon tea event.
What a cracker.
Remember, both our experts started
with up to £1,000 of their own money.
So far, Paul has spent £155 on two items,
leaving him with up to £845 in his kitty.
Mark has made one purchase which cost him £400,
leaving him with up to £600 still to spend.
So, both experts are pulling out all the stops.
-Paul is on home turf, seeking out...
-Twiddly bits of china.
This place is huge. I have been here quite a while now and I thought I'd seen this stall already.
Here we are, look at this lot.
A sea of pottery.
I'm bound to find something in here.
Yes, it's a porcelain paradise and Paul is hoping to seek out
the prize pieces and it's no surprise to see Mr Morecambe piling up the potential purchases.
With that many tea sets, he may need all the tea in China to fill them.
Now this is the Gladstone pattern. It was made in 1900, 1910.
So it is about 100-years-old. Very Edwardian.
It's known in the trade as the cigar pattern,
cos this looks like the ribs you used to get around the cigars, fancy bits of paper.
I've got a cunning plan.
What I'm planning to do with these is to make them into trios and sell them individually
What I want to put in here, maybe I'll have some tea bags, some biscuits, potentially.
Wrap the whole thing in a satin, a little certificate signed by myself.
I could sell these as individuals.
Now this set here is nicely gilded, there's eleven cups and saucers
and it cost £20. That's less than £2 each.
Paul's on a real buying roll and he's also snapped up
a set of Victorian cups and saucers for just £15
and five Royal Doulton trios for £12 each.
I've got my trolley.
I have got me lolly to buy these tea services.
All I need to do now is pack them up and get to this fantastic tea extravaganza.
I can't wait. The kettle's on.
So after trawling through a sea of pottery, Paul has parted with £140
for what he hopes will be a collection of profitable antique tea sets.
At Kempton, his rival has returned to a stall he spotted earlier.
Mark's already spoken to the stall holder, but if truth be told,
the object of his affection doesn't sound particularly promising.
No service history. No log book.
No MOT. No road tax.
No engine. No lights.
No point in buying it. But there is - it's £30.
Have a look.
Hello, mate. Where did it come from, what's the story on it?
It came from Exmouth. It was an ex-rental bike from the seafront.
So basically this was rented out for children to go up and down Exmouth seafront on their holidays.
What a lovely story. Isn't it?
-And still in good nick for a '60s-type bike.
-I wish I looked as good.
-Now, you said 30 quid earlier on.
-Can you do a bit better?
I'm offering you £20 and I'm offering you me hand as well?
No, I tell you what, it owes me 25 quid and to you, 25 quid.
It's a deal, you're a gentleman. Let's hope it rings the bell!
So there you have it. For £25, Mark secures the child's bike
and with it a slice of the great British seaside getaway.
Mark's having the time of his life at the auto jumble
and is quick to spot another potential money-spinner.
Now this is £50 well spent.
Brand spanking new.
Mr Hayes, I bet your kids would like this and I reckon at Beaulieu
somebody is going to buy this for one of their children.
Take yourself back to when you was five or seven-years-old.
What would you have given to have this for Christmas? 50 quid is a steal.
Did you buy anything today or not?
Not tired of this place yet.
I'm not tired - I'm exhausted. Get it? Exhausted.
Yes, very good, Mark.
Battersea's finest might be enjoying himself, but he is also hard at work and bags himself two Spitfire wheels
and a foot pump for £55 and an antique wicker bicycle baby seat and basket for £20.
Mark is truly motoring through his £1,000 kitty
and he's worked hard at the auto jumble.
Our precocious pair of experts have both been spending at a rate of knots.
But who's been nifty and who's been thrifty with the cash?
Remember, both our experts started with up to £1,000 of their own money.
After securing the tea sets, Paul has spent a total of £295,
leaving him with £705 still to spend.
Mark, on the other hand, has motored through his kitty at the auto show
and spent £550, leaving him with up to £450 still to spend.
With hundreds of pounds left in the kitties, there's all to play for
as our experts hunt out the pieces for their charity events.
Now look at this, the British seaside. Don't you just love it!
It's a bit damp today, but it hasn't dampened my spirits.
I'm really keen to buy as many items as I can for this afternoon tea extravaganza
and I have come to an antiques centre in my home town of Morecambe. I hope I can buy lots of bits and pieces.
Morning, how are you? All right?
Hello. Room service.
What's that, afternoon tea for how many? 120!
I'll put the kettle on.
Yes, 120 people.
You really need to buckle down, Paul. If you want to win
today's contest you need to buy many, many more tea time trinkets.
You know, I think I have found the perfect item for my afternoon tea.
An auction item. This is by Wedgwood,
very famous, it is called Jasperware.
This beautiful, bright, almost iridescent blue.
And all these figurines have actually been placed on by hand and they are all made individually.
If I go through every one of them, this is almost mint condition.
It dates about 1880, 1900, it has its base with it and it's for cheese.
It's called a cheese cloche or bell.
It rings my bell!
You know, I'm absolutely spoiled for choice here today.
But one item I have come across is a fabulous 1930s Japanese eggshell porcelain tea service.
And lots of these were brought back just before the Second World War.
But what's beautiful about these is that they incorporate a litho pane.
Now what that actually is... different thickness of porcelain
gives a picture and in this case it's a geisha girl.
I think these are marvellous examples.
They are certainly things I can sell as individuals.
We have even got a picture of Mount Fuji and there's ten or 11 cups and saucers and this is £40.
That's a bargain, isn't it?
He might have found what he thinks is a bargain, but Paul's not done yet.
Do you know what, what do you need for a perfect afternoon tea?
You need cakes and sandwiches.
So I found these three cake stands here which are very Art Deco.
This is the chintz pattern, which is close-knit flowers,
and I seem to remember some company telling us to throw this away, but don't.
This is very saleable stuff, it's double tiered. This is priced at £24.
But these two here are £8 each.
A similar sort of decoration. If I can get the three for a tenner each, it's a piece of cake.
It took him a while, but now he's knuckled down to the job at hand, Paul is racking up the purchases
and he's also seen something that reminds him of his rival.
Hello, Mark Franks. I thought you couldn't make it here today. But you're going to come along with me.
I'm going to make sure that you work very hard and serve everybody up this cup of tea.
Yes, that sounds like wishful thinking.
In London, Mark is concocting a scheme to spend the rest of his cash.
He's scouring the internet for classic cars.
But it looks as though he's having a bit of problem with modern technology.
In Morecambe, Paul has found a real gem of an item for his afternoon tea event.
I found one really unusual item which is perfect.
It's an invitation to a dinner dance at the Midland Hotel -
the same place I'm holding this event - in 1955. Isn't that fantastic?
What a real piece of memorabilia. A real find. These things are so rare.
It's got the original menu. It's been signed by lots of the diners. Look at that!
I think it's perfect for the manager of the Midland Hotel.
He could put that in the cabinet and show it to everybody. So fingers crossed.
Having hoovered up plenty of potentially profitable pieces, Paul now needs to do a cracking deal.
So I worked it out at £248.
It is, yes, spot on.
-Could you do a discount?
-Would that be all right?
-So you've saved us 45 quid.
-I did, yes.
They say it's not what you know, it's who you know. Thank you.
-Can you lend us a box?
-I'll find you one!
-Great, come on.
A dose of sea air really has done Paul the power of good.
It's over £200 well spent, and with that batch of goodies,
Paul's got tea-related items coming out of his ears.
In London, Franksy's search for a classic car has finally come to an end.
He's invested a large chunk of his remaining budget,
but I suspect it's going to take more than a few soap suds to turn this investment into a profit.
I've just invested £350 into this Capri.
It's just over 25-years-old, and it's a two-litre S.
It's got no MOT, no tax, and it doesn't even work.
Am I mad? Well, time will tell.
So what I'm going to do is try and get this up and running, MOT-ed,
take it to Beaulieu Auto Jumble and raffle it at £10 per ticket.
So I really do need to sell 35 tickets minimum to break even.
Paul Hayes, what are you doing? Buying bits of china, bits of glass, boring little ornaments?
First things first. This motor needs an MOT.
I've got a 1983 two-litre S Capri, needs an MOT.
We're clean out of miracles, mate.
It's not that bad!
You know I normally bring you nice cars, don't I?
Yeah, right! I must have missed those ones.
It was the day off you had.
-Any chance of MOT-ing it?
For £54, we can do anything.
I'm a little bit skint at the moment, any little jobs I can do rather than paying you cash?
Well, I'll tell you what, as it happens, the window cleaner has let me down for the last couple of weeks
-and there's plenty of glass here.
-There's a lot of glass.
Is there anything else? I can make you a nice cup of tea...
-Don't drink it.
All right, then. Er...got a bucket?
Yeah, let's get started.
Now, Mark really has taken a bit of a gamble here.
-Good luck, mate.
-If his crack team of pit-lane mechanics can't get
the car up and running and through an MOT,
his plans to raffle the car really will be hitting the skids.
There you go, my friend. Half-hour, mate, I'll be back to check on you.
-Oh, thanks, Ian.
-Just make sure you don't miss anything.
-Cheers, mate, thanks.
Never afraid to roll up his sleeves for some hard graft, Mark sets about his task.
Do you want some?
Not today, Mr Franks, get your back into it.
Those windows won't clean themselves.
Inside the garage, Mark needs a mechanical miracle to stay in today's competition.
Can this friendly garage breathe life into the car?
Yes, they can, it's alive, it's alive!
This had better pass its MOT.
Mark's almost finished his half of the deal,
but only time will tell if the car can be brought up to scratch.
His rival has snapped up another lot for auction at his special afternoon tea event.
He spent £75 on a collectable Susie Cooper coffee service, and he's not done yet.
He's on home turf and has also bagged himself some modern mugs.
The whole total there is 29.90.
-So less than £30.
Thank you very much.
In London, Mark's waiting with bated breath.
Spanners have been turning furiously, but has his ode to the '80s made it through its MOT?
-All right, me old mate.
-Hello, Ian, are you all right?
Yeah... It's just as well we're better at fixing cars than you are cleaning windows.
-I cracked it, didn't I? I done a nice job there.
-One new MOT certificate.
-Oh, what a star.
Do you think I've got any future in being a window cleaner?
-Ian, I owe you a pint.
I'll see you later, mate, cheers.
So there you go, one classic 1980s motor up and running.
Yet again, Franksy's comprehensive contacts book has come up trumps, and as he's a valued customer,
the garage have gone the extra mile and done some mechanics in return for some window cleaning.
With the car now roadworthy, Mark spends his last £100 getting it taxed.
Now it's ready to take to Beaulieu, where he's hoping it will make him a game-winning profit.
Mark and Paul were allowed to spend up to £1,000 of their own money on today's final showdown.
Mr Hayes has parted with just over £600, leaving almost £400 in his kitty.
Mark, on the other hand, has been on a real spending spree and has spent his entire budget of £1,000.
With their own cash and reputations on the line,
it's almost time for our dynamic duo to start selling their wares.
Paul's hopes of victory rest on... an early Victorian print of the beautiful game, an Art Deco clock,
several collections of antique china tea sets,
a late 19th-century Jasperware cheese bell, a clown teapot,
a hotel menu and dance card, a Susie Cooper Art Deco coffee service,
and the collection of modern coffee cups.
Mark, meanwhile, will be relying on a 1983 two-litre Capri, a classic AJS motorcycle,
a 1960s push-bike, a 19th-century child's bike seat and baskets,
two Spitfire wheels and a foot pump, and a modern mini scrambler.
So with their items bought, the challenge now for our experts
is to try and make the biggest possible profits.
Mark will be trying to sell his wares at a popular motoring event,
Paul, on the other hand, is holding an afternoon-tea extravaganza.
He's chosen one of the country's most impressive Art Deco hotels to host his event,
and his army of helpers and hotel staff are busy preparing
for the social event of the season.
OK, now this is the bit I don't like, carrying all the boxes in, but it has to be done.
I don't know what you're up to, Mark, but this is hard work.
Good old Mr Morecambe, rolling up his sleeves and getting stuck in.
Paul and his team are working their socks off, and before long he's ready to start welcoming his guests.
At Beaulieu, Mark is getting ready for the opening of one of Britain's leading motor shows.
Have a look at that crowd, they've all paid to get in.
We're at Beaulieu, and these people are dying to spend money.
Now, do you remember the Capri? It is now MOT-ed.
I've got the motorbikes, I've got all my bits and bobs.
I'm hoping to take some serious dough here today.
These lot are not here to buy tea, they're here to spend money.
Well, only time will tell if they're going to spend that money on Franksy's raffle tickets.
But as Paul is selling his items at a big charity event,
I'm sure Mark won't be slow to push that angle with the customers at today's car show.
With vintage vehicles of all descriptions now in place and Mark ready for action,
the doors are opened and the customers come flooding in.
Mark's laid out all his items, and he's working hard
to sell tickets for the chance to win the car in his licensed raffle.
Can I interest you in a raffle ticket? £10 each.
£10 a ticket. Keep your head down, walk past, don't have a look.
Hard work, this lot, aren't they?
Oh, dear! It seems as though Mark's charm, wit and repartee are falling flat on this crowd.
He's struggling to drum up business for his car raffle.
There's ladies coming, you can always rely on ladies cos they're nice.
Can I interest you in a ticket? £10 for a raffle ticket, you win the car, all proceeds go to charity.
Madam, can I interest you in a ticket?
Can I interest you, young lady?
She'll be back later.
Put a name and number on there, and I'll get you some change.
Well, Mark is hard at work, but if his theory
that it's easier to sell to ladies holds any weight, Paul might well strike gold.
# Here come the girls
# Here come the girls... #
-How mad is this?
-My favourite presenter is Paul.
Cos he's the best-looking one.
He's a bonny lad!
Don't tell him, but he is!
My favourite presenter is Paul, Paul Hayes.
I'm his mum.
Ah... Well, he's got a face that his mum and,
to be fair, most of Morecambe seem to love, but Mr Hayes isn't just a pretty face.
Our canny dealer is charging £10 to get into his event.
Half of the money is going to the hotel to pay for the food and drink,
the other half pays for a raffle ticket
and a chance to win the elegant Art Deco clock.
Now, that is a tea-tastic plan.
With his assembled guests chomping at the bit to get their hands on his collectable tea sets,
it's time for Paul to do what he does best - get behind a stall and sell, sell, sell.
Everyone has had a chance to look at these tea wares,
so now it's time to sell them, so, Mark Franks, eat your heart out.
Yes, Norman, how are you, mate? There we go, how much is that?
-That's £6, do have a one by any chance?
-Here, just take that.
Just take a tenner, OK, that's very generous of you. Take that, it's a nice little keepsake for the day.
Oh, my word! It's a selling frenzy.
Paul's guests are going crazy for his trios.
Thank you very much, I'll give you a fiver back.
Deals are being done left...
-Lovely, thank you.
Perfect cup of tea, thank you.
-Thank you so much for that.
Excellent, thank you.
Our profit counter just can't keep up as Mr Morecambe racks up sale after sale.
At Beaulieu, Franksy needs to get into top gear and shift some raffle tickets.
After a slow start, it looks like he's starting to do just that.
That's it, lovely. Thank you very much.
Mark is in his element.
How many tickets do you want?
But just when Franksy was getting into his stride, the great British weather strikes.
# I can't stand the rain against my window... #
Special effects aside, this isn't good news for our Battersea boy.
The selling spree that had money pouring into his kitty is now just pouring!
Franksy isn't a man to give in easily and has come up with Plan B.
The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain, but in Beaulieu, it stays mainly on my stall.
I'm going to move this to another stall, where it's got a bit more of a chance of selling.
I spoke to one of my mates who's stalling out, he says, "Bring it down, he knows a man."
Worth a chance.
Mind your backs! Coming through!
Despite selling plenty of raffle tickets,
Mark still hasn't made a penny of profit and needs all the help he can get.
His contact has a stall in a prime location and in addition to the vintage motorbike,
Mark has also persuaded him to showcase the mini scrambler and the 1960s push-bike.
However, even if his contract can help rustle up some interest in these two items,
as well as the classic motorbike, Mark will still have to seal the deals.
Both our experts are getting into top selling gear
but which one of them is speeding to success?
Mr Morecambe is definitely on top form in his home town.
He's sold £290 worth of tea paraphernalia from his stall,
and has netted profits of £50.
Mark, on the other hand, hasn't sold anything.
He's not even sold enough tickets for the car he's raffling,
meaning he hasn't made a bean!
So, with the pressure mounting, Franksy is in desperate need of turning some profits.
He could really do with a break, and it looks like he's got it - in the shape of a break in the weather.
# I can see clearly now the rain is gone... #
-Would you like to buy a ticket?
-No, thanks, mate.
-Please, come on!
# I can see all the obstacles in my way... #
It's not a bad gamble, a tenner. A year's MOT, six months' tax.
# Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind... #
Go on, please?
# It's gonna be a bright
# Bright sunshining day... #
Earlier in the day, Mark persuaded a fellow dealer at his event to showcase three of his purchases.
The AJS motorbike, a push-bike and the mini scrambler.
His plan might pay dividends as a potential purchaser has been found for the scrambler.
Remember, the mini-bike set him back £50.
It's just your size, made to measure.
What's the asking price? I like to start high and go down low.
-Really? £400 then.
So, Franksy is finally getting down to the crucial business of selling his wares.
In Morecambe, Paul is preparing to draw the winning ticket in his licensed raffle.
Don't forget, the prize is the striking Art Deco clock.
The stylish timepiece set him back £55. Remember, each of his guests received a raffle ticket on entry.
We have, then, the winner for the fabulous Art Deco clock is...
Ticket number 80. Who's that, ticket 80?
Paul bought the clock for a £55 and thanks to a great turnout,
he's just made a whopping
£545 profit from the sale of his raffle tickets.
Mr Morecambe is way out in front, but he's not a man to rest on his laurels -
he's also been selling tickets at a pound each for a second raffle.
The prize is some modern crockery,
and this money-making scheme has banked him just over £200.
Mark might seem a long way behind, and in truth, he is.
However all is not lost, and he's working hard to seal a deal for his mini scrambler.
You have it for 80 quid, because I like you.
-£60 and you've got a deal.
-I'll meet you in the middle, 70.
-66... Go on, then.
You're a star, thank you very much.
That sale of £66 gives him a £16 profit.
He's scrambling to make the profits he needs
in today's showdown challenge,
but he also manages to cash in on the 1960s push-bike,
which he sells for £50, giving him a profit of £25.
Mark might have sold a couple of items,
but he needs to make more profit
if he's going to have any chance of beating his rival.
In Morecambe, Paul has banked more cash from the sale of his Susie Cooper coffee set.
It's going once... Round of applause, if it goes.
..it's going twice... Wait for it.
..and it's gone. Sold to the lady in the purple!
Thank you very much, yay!
The set sells for £125, giving Mr Hayes a tidy profit of £50.
Mr Morecambe is streets ahead in the profit stakes.
But Franksy is working hard to sell his items at the Motor Show.
One of his contacts, who also has a stall at the show,
has found someone who's interested
in the classic motorbike that cost Mark £400.
Now, it's up Franksy to try and secure a much-needed sale.
Sounds all right. I was hoping for a £600 or £700.
Let's just call it £600.
With the original tinware, that bike would be worth 550-600 quid.
Without original tinware, 400 quid.
-£400, I can't do any more, I'm sorry.
20 - cash. That's it, otherwise I'll walk away.
OK, you've got a deal.
You're now the proud owner of an AJS thingamajig.
The buyer drove a hard bargain,
but Mark has banked a £20 profit from his classic motorcycle.
Although the Spitfire wheels pour more money into his kitty,
he only manages to break even on his two wicker items
by throwing in a foot pump as part of the deal.
At the afternoon tea event, Paul's auction is in full swing,
He's made a small loss of £10 from the sale of his 19th Century football print
But he's hoping to bounce back as he introduces his next lot to his guests?
I found this very recently, and I think it's absolutely superb.
It's an invitation to a dinner dance that happened in 1955.
It happened at this very hotel, isn't that amazing?
Who wants to start at £25?
Who wants to start at 20? 20 we have there, with the lady. 25 anywhere?
25 I have with the gentleman here in the corridor.
25, can I make it 30, madam? 30 we have with the lady here.
35, sir? 35 I have with the gentleman here.
Anybody else want to come in?
Look at that, Matt, the manager. Round of applause!
APPLAUSE AND LAUGHTER
I'm sure you can make it a round 50, how does that sound?
So we're up to £50 there. Anybody else want to make it any more than 50?
It's a great example to have. I think the Midland should have it, should you?
That's going once, going twice. Round of applause for Matt the manager.
That's a good result for Mr Morecambe.
He managed to persuade the manager of the hotel to up his bid by an extra £5,
meaning the dinner dance invitation returned home,
and served up a profit of £37.
£100, come on, round of applause!
There's more good news for Paul
when the Jasperware cheese bell, complete with a wheel of stilton,
adds another £10 to his kitty and Mr Morecambe is all sold up.
The pressure is now really on Mark.
At the motor show, an expectant crowd of ticket-holders has gathered
to hear Franksy conduct the draw for his classic '80s car.
The tickets are in, I've sold 105 tickets.
I'd like to thank everyone here who's bought one. Give yourself a round of applause.
It's time to draw the raffle.
I've got one here.
It's a lady.
-Has she gone back home?
Is that your name?
Well done! Come here!
How do you feel? You've spent £10.
-He spent £10!
You're now the proud owner. You've got MOT, and a set of keys.
Thank you so much.
Her boyfriend looks really angry over there.
-Husband, even worse.
A round of applause for Donna, I can't pronounce her surname.
-What do you think?
I've always wanted a Capri.
-Where's the husband? In you get, come on.
Round of applause for Donna.
This is mental.
Honestly, this is mine?
It's yours now, baby. You'd better believe it.
You bought the winning ticket. Well done.
The raffle was an absolute success, and the young lady who won it was nearly in tears.
It's been a great day, I'm absolutely over the moon.
Paul Hayes, you go and have a cup of tea. I'm going to get an ice cream. See you later.
Not only has Franksy made somebody's day,
he's also made a fantastic £600 profit by raffling off his '80s car.
So, all that remains now is to tot up the totals,
and find out how much Mark and Paul have made.
Remember, both experts can spend up to £1,000 of their own money.
Paul "Mr Morecambe" Hayes spent just over £600 on items,
and another £10 on a piece of cheese,
to accompany his cheese bell.
Mark "Fransky" Franks spent the lot.
That's right, he parted with £1,000.
It's been a titanic tussle between our two dealers, with both desperate to win today's showdown challenge.
Without further ado, it's time to reveal who is today's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.
Let me guess, Paul, your showdown had something to do with a cup of tea?
Yes, and Morecambe. The combination was marvellous.
Afternoon tea in Morecambe. Is anything better?
A nice cup of coffee? I wasn't invited though. What's going on?
You weren't, but I've got some vol-au-vents for you.
I was very busy myself, because I bought a Ford Capri and a couple of motorbikes,
and I sold them at Beaulieu. That's how I made my money.
Sounds a really good idea. Was it a good day?
-It was hard work, but we got there in the end.
-I really want to win this one.
You know why? Half of Morecambe turned out to this event.
-All nine people?
-All nine people!
-Wow! Was there biscuits involved?
There was biscuits. I really want to win it for Morecambe.
OK, you ready to have a look? Three, two, one, let's go! Wow!
-Look at that! I've been beaten!
-I can't believe it, the tea man has won it.
So, it's a fabulous triumph for Mr Morecambe.
Today's contest went right down to the wire, but Paul has walked away with a well-earned victory.
Do you know, I'm absolutely delighted. I raised well over £800 at the afternoon tea event.
Half of Morecambe turned out to support it. I had a marvellous day.
I think everyone who went to the event had a great time.
We raised a lot of money for charity. I'm delighted with that.
Doing the Capri was hard graft,
actually getting it ready for the MOT, and all that hard work I put into it.
I think it paid off pretty well.
I wish I'd been selling cups of tea now. He's done well, the lad's done well.
Paul may have won the final challenge of the week, but we're not done yet.
Our duelling duo have battled it out all week in five different challenges.
It's now time to find out which of them has made the biggest total profit.
-Shall we add it all up?
-Are you ready?
Oh, you made 500 quid more than me. That's amazing.
-That was a good amount of money.
-I'm pleased. Will your charity be pleased?
Absolutely over the moon. That's great.
-I'll buy you an ice-cream.
-That's what it's all about, mate. Come on.
So, he might have lost today's challenge,
but Mark is this week's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.
However, he and Paul have worked their socks off and raised fabulous profits,
and all of those profits will be going to their chosen charities.
I'm absolutely delighted.
I can give a cheque for almost £2,000 to the RNLI.
That's an awful lot of money. That will go to a lot of good.
So I'm ecstatic it turned out to make that sort of money.
I made more money than him, that's what it's all about. Two and a half grand goes to my charity,
the Paul D'Auria Cancer Support Centre.
I think we both deserve a pat on the back.
There's no doubt about it, Mark and Paul have risen to the challenge.
Next week, two more of the nation's favourite antiques experts will be going head-to-head,
as we say, dealers, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!
