'How will the country's favourite antiques experts fare
'when they're challenged to make a profit with their own cash?'
He who laughs last laughs loudest.
'From car boots to auction houses, our experts will be recreating
'their real-life deals,
'as they try to make the most money for their chosen charities.'
-Purchase of the week!
-Fantastic! I'm thrilled with that!
'The challenge to our experts is clear.
'Dealers, put your money where your mouth is!'
'Today's antiques explorers are the cunning Philip "The Fox" Serrell
'and devilish David Harper.
'Philip is the seasoned professional with his own saleroom in Worcestershire...'
At £220. Is there any more?
'..and years sharing his knowledge on Flog It.'
It isn't just about selling.
It's buying something and placing it with the right person.
'David is the expert dealer, with 20 years in the trade under his belt.'
You are, effectively, a treasure hunter.
'He's a natural born dealer and always up for a Bargain Hunt.'
20 quid less than I would have paid!
'So, we've got the experts.
'They've got the knowledge, contacts and determination to win.
'They're far from home turf, as they've crossed the Channel for the continental challenge.
'Time to find out the aim of today's game.'
-David, how are you?
-Do you know...?
-We are in the Champagne region. What a number!
It almost seems a pity to waste time.
-We should go straight to a bar.
-That's what we need to do.
After we've read our instructions. Let's have a look.
"Philip and David, your challenge today is to spend up to £750..."
In euros. "..of your own money on antiques.
"Then re-sell your purchases to make as much profit as possible.
"The winner is the presenter who makes most cash."
-"Today, you must buy all your antiques from..."
-"..a French market."
-Here's a tester.
-Oh, bonne chance!
-That's was good.
'Our treasure hunters each have to spend up to £750 of their own cash
'buying antiques which they'll try to sell in the UK for a profit.
'Our duo are visiting an antiques fair in northern France.
'The city of Reims lies in the heart of the Champagne region.
'Our gents will be too busy to take advantage of the local speciality.
'Everybody that they do deals with
'will be aware that they're on a mission to raise money for charity.
'Our experts will persuade people to give them the best prices
'when they buy and sell the items
'they hope will drive them to victory.
'How do they plan to win today's continental clash?'
I'm going to think laterally, expand the mind.
Think continental, that's probably the answer.
'Y-yes. I'm not sure we're entirely clear what that means, either.
'His opponent has a more specific plan, aiming to cash in on the British love affair
'with glamorous French antiques.'
This is the kind of thing that I've always done well with.
Very pretty. Something you might buy for your wife or your mother.
It's a picture frame.
It's more than just a picture frame. You can sit it on a desk.
It's got a ring so you could hang it on a wall.
You could put a nice piece of plain mirror.
Suddenly, it's a gorgeous dressing table mirror for the lady.
Date-wise, 1950s or 1960s.
A mid 20th-century reproduction
of something designed in the late 19th century.
It's very French, very glamorous, very stylish
and very expensive - 80 euros.
That's £70-something, so it's a lot of money.
It's negotiating time.
Which I'm not good at because I'm rubbish at French.
'That doesn't sound promising.
'Philip seems to have forgotten his strategy of thinking continental
'and has spotted something that reminds him of home.'
You can take the man out of Worcester but you can't take Worcester out the man.
Everybody thinks of sauce and pots, but it had a massive glove industry.
This is a finger carrot. What's it got to do with gloves?
If you open this up, you would put talcum powder in there.
Then, you'd poke this down a glove, each finger,
shoot some talcum powder out.
You could then pull a leather glove on.
I think that's lovely and I'd like to buy that.
It's priced up at 35 euros.
I've got to go outside my comfort zone cos I'm in France.
It would be wrong of me not to try to parler un peu de Francais.
'Both experts have found items they are passionate about.
'Time for the language of lurve.'
Here goes. Good luck, eh? Madame?
-Vous parlez Francais?
-No. Very badly. No.
Le dernier prix?
-SHE SPEAKS QUICKLY IN FRENCH
-I'm completely lost now!
'Oh, dear. Our boy's a little tongue-tied.'
-Comment s'appelle. La livre.
-Le dernier prix?
-Ah, mon coeur!
It's very... My heart. My heart is broken.
25? I wish you'd said that earlier. I love you.
Quarante. Napoleon, what a deal!
-I'd like to buy that. Thank you very much.
What's more nerve-racking, the language or the deal?
'Both our love-struck bargain hunters have sealed deals
'they hope were made in heaven...
'Both our experts are setting a good purchasing pace.
'The Fox is ready to strike again.'
This is a miniature French commode.
The original would have dated from about mid 18th century.
This one...if we have a look here,
I'd think was early part of the 20th century.
We've got this lovely veined marble top, gilt metal mounts.
This carcass is veneered in kingwood.
If you look here, a telltale on a piece of furniture, big or small,
is when this is replicated on the side.
To do this on the side is equally expensive
and because you wouldn't see it, not always necessary.
For me, that's a telltale that it really is
a well-made little piece.
What I haven't told you is the price.
What would I get for it back home?
Miniature furniture is incredibly collectable.
I viewed a sale recently where a bureau bookcase this high
was estimated at £800 to £1,200.
I like to think that I would get between £200 and £400 for this.
Time to test my best Franglais again.
-Le dernier prix?
Ecoutez, vraiment... a deux cents.
Mais je peu pas...
'I sense another Anglo-French divide.
'David has spotted a water fountain that he thinks could be a winner,
'if he can reduce the 600 euro asking price.'
-The water fountain?
-Priced 600. What's the absolute very best price?
My best price? Well, my best price is, er...
-Euro. If it's possible.
-That's a good start.
-The style is English porcelain.
This is Porcher Porcelaine Anglaise.
-I can make very good price, if you want. 250.
-It's a good deal.
-Well, you're trying.
Very trying. But not trying enough.
-How about 120?
-220, yes. OK.
-Is that it?
-I'll have it. Good man. Thank you very much.
-OK. Thank you.
'Ooh la la! Another knockout piece of bargaining by David.
'Just under £208, a third of the original asking price.
'Elsewhere, The Fox is still failing with his French.'
What's she saying?
The only thing I understood out of that was deux cents dix.
210 euros, just under £210.
I think I'm going to buy it.
'Philip seems pleased but he's paid the full asking price.
'It's a hotly fought contest today and both experts
'are determined to seal diamond deals under their opponent's nose.'
-BAD FRENCH ACCENT:
-I am searching for the devilish David Harper
before, like ze Pink Panther, he steals all my items.
'Inspector Serrell skulks in the shadows
'as he tries to track down his target.
'But the profit-hunting panther has plenty of tricks up his sleeve,
'or rather on his head.
'They're both playing a cagey game, but who'll have the most cunning
'and who'll end up with egg on their face?
'Time to get back to business.
'Both experts are determined to win
'and are scouring the stalls for game-winning pieces.'
This is stunning.
This is a piece of stoneware that is clearly really old.
This would have been sat on a building, probably a church.
I would think that could date anywhere from 1500
through to 1700, I really like that.
In terms of value, I would guess that it's worth between
£200 and £300.
This is an early 20th century Italian Murano mirror.
What should you look for?
We have a little bit of damage there. Another bit here.
I don't think that's a bad thing.
In terms of value, I would think
that's probably worth around £20 to £40.
And finally, we've got this. This is absolutely wizard.
This is boxwood and it's a bilboquet.
It's a game. You start with it down there.
You flick it up and land it on the spike.
Failed miserably. Value?
Probably between £30 and £50.
In terms of age, it's early part of the 20th century. What a great toy.
You could do some damage with that. You'd win every conker match.
'Ah, he's just a child at heart.
'David has taken a shine to something that's seen better days.'
Let me tell you about this manky old cast iron urn.
It's been outside for 100 years.
No-one's taken any care over it. It looks absolutely ruined.
However, that green patination is invaluable.
You cannot reproduce that.
I think it's completely gorgeous. Probably late 19th century.
Price-wise, 45 euros,
which is over £40, not the end of the world.
But what do you do? Try and get the price down. Wish me luck.
'David knows every penny counts.
'His rival also knows the importance of getting the best possible price.'
I think that is absolutely marvellous.
Price. How much?
-Very good, good piece.
-It's really lovely.
-I love these bits here.
-How much is this?
-I thought that had lost a bit in translation.
I thought 80 euros meant 30 euros. Bilboquet, let's see you do it.
I'm not... Ah!
-How much is that? Does that put the price up?
-For this, 60 bucks.
-60 euros, sorry.
-So you want, 80 and 60? 140 euros?
If I buy those two, what's the very best you can do?
-Very good price.
Just hold on a minute.
Christophe, I've only got 50 left.
-You're a lovely man. I'm fibbing. Will that do the job?
-Will that 50 euros...? Yes?
-Yeah, I know.
'Philip's found his bargaining tongue at last!
'David is also in the zone and snapped up the urn for £33.
'Both experts are on a roll,
'both determined to buy the best bargains.'
-Le dernier prix, s'il vous plait.
-'And are haggling hard.'
What would be the absolute lowest of low price?
'But there's no accounting for taste.'
I think it's brilliant.
'We never had Mr Serrell down as a cowboy!
'Both experts are finding quality items
'but which one has splashed the most cash...?'
'David has been more frugal...
'So David is behind in the spending stakes and is desperate to catch up.
'He's haggling hard to get a good price on this French mirror.'
-The mirror, how much?
-You're going to like this.
-Non, non, non.
Ah, sir. No.
How about if we go...
-No problem. A prochaine.
'An unusual way of haggling but once again, David knocks the price down.
'With plenty of cash still to spend, Philip needs to get buying - fast.
'The more he buys the more chances he has of making a profit.
'He's headed back to that carving and its English speaking owner.'
I'd like to buy that, Christophe, but at nothing like 800 euros.
-That's very good piece.
-It would make a good feature in a garden.
-What's your best price?
-My best price?
Er... My best price, er...
'The Fox is going to need all of his cunning to buy this carving.
'Devilish David has made another purchase.'
To me! Yes! I've just bought it. Isn't that a little beauty?
A marble-topped, cast-iron framed outdoor eating table.
Original patinated finish. The paint's flaking off.
You wouldn't dream of touching that. Looks Victorian but probably 1920s.
Outdoor stuff is always good news. It's not a wooden top.
Being marble, it is bomb-proof.
Leave it out year after year and it would only get better.
A great outdoor eating table.
Even better than that, look at this. I bought two!
A matching pair. The tops aren't the same but they're still marble.
But check the bases, identical.
A pair is always better than two odd singles.
So I'm absolutely delighted.
Even better, I bought a third.
This, I've got to say, is my favourite.
The reason why is the base. Look at the foot.
The base was an early 20th century French enamel motoring sign.
Bizarrely, that sign, if it wasn't in this table, in decent condition
would probably be worth more than all three tables.
'At almost £360, that's a huge purchase for Mr Harper.
'He could open up his own French bistro with that trio,
'but might have to brush up on his language skills.
'Philip is trying to seal a deal. Can he get a massive discount?'
-What's the VERY best?
I was thinking just under 200. Would it help if I started counting these?
-How much do you have?
-Now we're getting,.. How about 150?
No, no. 250.
-No. Not possible.
-No, no, no.
Think what you're doing for Anglo-French relationships.
-You're a star, Christophe.
-You're terrible, man!
'Ooh, la la!
'That's less than a quarter of the original asking price.
'Tres bon, Monsieur Serrell.
'It's been a busy day in France.
'Philip and David were allowed to spend up to £750 of their own money.
'Philip has bought six pieces...
'His opponent has splashed out just over £690 on just five items.
'It's almost time to head home, but before they pack their purchases
'our duelling duo cast their eyes over their rival's wares.'
-Have you had a good day?
-It's been wild. How are your feet?
-Weary! Parlez-vous Francais fluently now?
I'll never get it. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
-What's your best lot?
-I think my best lot has got to be my porcelain.
I'm not going to mention what you've called it!
It's fantastic quality, but I paid a lot of money.
-220 euros. £210-ish. A lot of money. What about you?
-Your favourite piece.
-I'd have that at home and I love the stone.
But, for me, that little miniature commode is just lovely.
That's my favourite piece. It's great quality, lovely shape.
-Exactly! That's why you're drawn to it!
-Your worst piece for me would be your maracas!
-It's a bilboquet.
-Never heard of one.
-It's a dead easy game!
While I go and sell my things,
-I'm going to leave you. Three goes.
'Once David's finished playing he'll be heading back to Blighty
'with a blue and white ceramic water fountain,
'a 19th-century garden urn,
'an Art Nouveau style picture frame,
'a large gilt-framed mirror
'and three marble-topped tables.
'The Fox is pinning his hopes of victory on a cowhide rug,
'a boxwood finger carrot glove powderer,
'an early 20th-century miniature marble-topped commode,
'a bilboquet game,
'a 20th-century Murano glass mirror
'and that decorative stone carving,
'which he hopes is at least 300 years old.
'Our two treasure hunters have headed home
'to sell their purchases and make as much profit as possible.
'They'll be pulling out all the stops to find the right buyers
'and are working their way through their little black books.
'But until they've shaken on it and money has changed hands,
'no deal is truly sealed.
'Mr Harper is heading to Derbyshire
'to try and sell the garden urn that cost him just over £33.
'The dealer might have liked the look of the urn in David's photos,
'but there's no guarantee of a sale or that he'll pay the price David wants.'
-Getting your hands dirty again?
-I try not to.
-Does that look bigger or smaller than the picture?
That's good, because it's a nice manageable size.
It's a good size for display. It's great.
It can work equally well indoors and out.
Conservatory would be ideal, with a single plant in it.
-We're selling it to each other!
'The dealer sounds interested. Can David get him to splash the cash?'
-What are you asking for?
-I'm going to give you a great price.
-Is that a promise?
-It's a promise.
You won't collapse. 90 quid.
It's the right sort of region but I never accept the first price.
-How about a bid?
-Go on, then.
-£70. How does that sound?
-Make it 80.
-Er... Split the difference? 75?
-Go on. Good man.
-Lovely. Thank you.
'David sealed the deal and £75 is more than double the amount he paid.
'Without the same dealing experience
'Philip is relying on auction room contacts to sell his French collection.
'Devilish David is on a roll and is hoping to sell his mirror
'to a lady who wants to use it rather than sell it.'
Look at that! Fantastic!
-What do you think of that baby?
-Everything I hoped it would be.
There's a bit of chip here and there.
-But it's got age, about 1920.
-The style is Regency.
-Very glamorous, like you.
-'He's turning on the charm.'
Lots of gilt, lots of fantastic decoration.
Gadrooned border, with its original mercury glass. See the mirror?
That lovely hand-cut bevel.
I love it. Put that at the right height.
You won't see anything down the sides. Brilliant.
-You won't even notice that.
-These nibbles add a bit of character.
Give me an idea of what it's worth.
It'd be the cheapest French gilt mirror in the world for you, Claire, at £150.
More than I was expecting. It's brilliant.
Love it but my budget's nearer 100.
-Is that a shock?
-It is a bit.
I intended to spend that sort of money, but before I looked at it.
When you see something in the flesh, Claire, and you like it,
you just have to have it.
-Do you think we can live with that?
-It would work perfectly.
-That's the changing room?
-I know the width of that room.
It was made specifically for your changing room in 1920.
You had that in mind in France, saw it, "Claire! It will fit"?
-Claire, you're always on my mind!
-Come on. What are we going to do?
-I... I'll come up.
-I'll go to 110.
-OK, one more go. 125, if it fits.
-If it fits.
-Let's see if we can make it fit!
Watch this. I know it'll work.
Claire, just imagine.
-I'm imagining. That high. Move the pillar.
'That's a top bit of trading from dealer David, and a sizeable profit.
'He's streaking ahead, but had better watch his back
'as his auctioneer opponent is going back to basics
'and learning the ropes of this trading lark.'
# ..As simple as do, re, mi A-B-C
# One, two, three Baby, you and me! #
'The Fox may be new to dealing
'but years of experience have taught him a thing or two.
'He's off to see a local contact with one of his more unusual items.'
-Trace, how are you doing?
-How are you?
-Fine thank you.
-Do you like that?
-It's really nice. What is it?
-It's called a bilboquet.
I went to France and bought it off a lunatic Frenchman, Christophe,
who tried to tell me that you held it like that and you sort of...
flick it up and catch it on the end.
One more go. Look at that!
That's the general plan.
It's made out of boxwood, which comes from the box tree.
Originally, these were a 19th-century game.
I wondered if you think that Malvern is ready for the bilboquet.
Well, I see this as being an opportunity for you
to take a step forward and take Malvern into the European community.
-And sell them a bilboquet.
'It sounds like she needs convincing, Mr Serrell.
'Philip bought it with the Murano glass mirror for just over £47.
'He really needs to make a profit.'
Tracey, make me an offer I can't refuse.
Well, what about £30?
Tracey, that is an offer I can refuse. You'll have to try harder.
-I could knock a fiver off.
-What about 40?
-Another fiver and it's yours.
Go on, then.
-Are you sure?
-You're an angel.
You're a star.
'Philip's nearly made his cash back and he's still got the mirror.
'Now he's got started, there's no stopping The Fox.
'He pours more money into his pot by sealing a deal for the finger carrot
'and makes a slim profit by selling the cowhide to his daughter,
'who spotted it when Mr Serrell returned from France.
'Philip is relying on saleroom contacts,
'but as he's selling to dealers who have to make a profit,
'he's having to haggle really hard.
'In Derbyshire, David is hoping to sell his frame.
'The sun's not shining,
'but David won't let that stop him trying for more than the £38 he needs for a profit.'
-George, how are you?
-Great to see you.
I brought you something special.
What we have here is a Napoleon "trois", which is...
-One, two, three.
We're dating this one from about 1860, 1870.
-You think it's as early as that?
-I actually do.
There are several reasons, a few telltale signs.
-The price on the back!
-Oh, my lord!
-We'll leave that!
-I don't believe it!
'Leaving the price tag on? Schoolboy error.'
This has been hand-cut, this frame, and there's a lot of wear on that.
This has been gilded at one stage.
Without going back to the price on the back...
-That's shot me in the foot!
I'm prepared to give you a fair price. Let's ignore that.
-Oh, George! You're too hard on me, honestly.
-Go on, then. £85 and a nice cup of tea.
-A nice cup of tea.
'The buyer drove a hard bargain but Mr Harper bagged a decent profit.
'Philip The Fox needs to pull a cunning trick out the bag.
'Time for his favourite item, the mini commode,
'to put in an appearance.
'He's hoping to sell it to another saleroom contact.'
You've got great miniature bits. Can we compare the two?
-I want to try to sell you this.
-Go on, then.
Raymond, I'm ever hopeful of seeing the chequebook come out here.
-Is this 1900-ish?
-Just about that. About 1900.
-What's the timber?
Kingwood veneer on the front and the legs.
Kingwood banding. The central core is in tulipwood.
-Nice and uncleaned.
I thought it was 1900, 1920?
Yeah, that's about it.
It's slightly out of synch with the other things.
But I've got more pieces of it.
That falls into being good enough to keep.
-It's sounding like you might want to buy this.
-Just rest easy.
Have we got a price coming from you?
Well, I thought in a retail shop, this might make £400 to £500.
Mm, y-yeah, probably.
It's irrelevant to me, though.
-350, and that is bottom line.
-Raymond, you're a gentleman.
Not many people would say that!
-What can I say?
-Get the chequebook!
Go on. Get the chequebook.
'As Philip is on a mission to raise money for his chosen charity,
'the buyer dug a little deeper.
'Both experts are pulling out all the stops, but which one is leading?
'Philip has sold four items and made profits of just over £176.
'Devilish David isn't far behind.
'He's sold three items and his profits add up to almost £160.
'Philip may not be the experienced dealer but his little black book
'came up trumps for him on the mini commode.
'With two items left, he needs to keep up the pace.
'His opponent is on the trail of another sale.
'He's trying to sell his water fountain he bought for just under £280.'
Look at that fire, Andrew! It's just gorgeous!
Mind you, this is just as gorgeous. What do you reckon?
-It really is unusual.
-Isn't it bonnie?
I bought it from a French dealer.
We concluded this was a French piece, it's typical in design,
but decorated in the English design.
However, when I'd bought it, I put it in the van and discovered this.
It's got a stamp that says Couldron, a British maker, England.
It's actually an English piece
but made for the French market in the English decoration.
So it's much better than I originally thought.
Because it's stamped England, we can date it to just after 1891.
In 1891, everybody started marking with the country of origin.
The Americans were charging taxes that anybody who made anything
outside of the United States had to mark their wares in 1891.
Have you seen these before? I've only seen them in cast iron.
No. That is a first.
-How would you value it?
I knew you'd say something like that. That's cast-iron money!
Make it three and a half, 350.
We couldn't go... I would say maybe up to 275.
Oh! You're a hard man. Make it 325.
I think, we'd stick at 290. We could proceed at that.
Make it a bit more. Make it 310. Make it 315, even better!
No, I think 290 is our... 290 is our lot on there.
-I'll do the 290.
-And let me show you a table.
-I'll go and get it.
'The dealer stood firm at £290. That's still a very good profit.
'David gets a decent price for the first table as well.'
-185 and we've got a deal.
-Go on, then.
-I need to get home. Well done.
'David bought the trio of tables for almost £360.
'Selling one for £190 is a fantastic start.
'His years of dealing experience are pushing him back into the lead.
'In Worcestershire, The Fox is trying to sell his Murano mirror.
'He bought it with the bilboquet for just over £47.
'He's hoping that his contact might be interested.'
-Lovely to see you.
-You, too. How are you doing?
-I've been on my travels.
-I can see.
I bought this at a French market. I thought it had a nice look to it.
It is a nice mirror.
These gilt flowers could go right back to the 18th century.
-Do you want to buy this?
-If the price is right.
-At what price would you put that on your stall?
Probably £50 to £60.
-That's given me a clue what to ask you.
'Nicely done, Mr Serrell.'
-I'm interested at the right price.
-What will you bid me?
-I'd push to 25.
Because it is pretty.
-Right. Well, I was hoping I'd get 40.
-35. And that is a very good price for it.
I bought this in France for 20 euros which is about £20.
I reckon there's £15 for you and £15 for me.
-That strikes me as being quite fair. Done deal?
-I suppose so.
Honours are even. Honours are even.
'That's a combined profit of nearly £33 for the mirror and bilboquet.
'Both our dealers are nearly sold-up with David leading the way.
'If Philip is to have any chance of winning he needs to pull out all the stops on the stone carving.
'His opponent aims to cash in on his two remaining tables.
'He's found a potential buyer. He paid almost £360 for three.
'Having sold one for 190, he only needs £169 to go into profit.'
-Here he is.
-Are you well?
-I'm very well.
-You being a man of style, you'll love these tables.
-Let me look at your face.
-What's the history?
-French, early 20th century.
Probably 1910 to 1920-ish. Around there.
Nicely ornate, cast iron.
Very interesting. It would be nice if we put the top on.
-Oh! You want tables?!
-It is a table?
-Yeah, it is!
OK. Let's try this one, then.
'David having lined up a potential buyer, the pressure is on Philip.
'He's headed to a garden ornament dealer.
'As he tiptoes around,
'he's looking to see if his French plaque fits in.
'He paid just under £170 for it.
'For any chance of catching David, he needs to turn a big profit.'
-Edward, how are you?
-I'm all right, Phil. Thanks.
I've been shopping in France.
I went over and met this wonderful character called Christophe.
Christophe sold me this little baby.
-What do you think to it?
I quite like it. I'd like to know a bit more about it.
-Where's it come from?
-What's it made out of? Who is it?
-I'm hoping you might tell me.
-Is it limestone?
-Did Christophe not give you any information?
"Philipe, it's a carving!"
He didn't say anything at all,
other than it's 800 euros and from 19th century to 16th century.
We have a slight problem with 800 euros, Phil.
'Philip paid less than £170, but he's talking about 800 euros!
'If he gets anywhere near that, he'll take some beating today.
'In County Durham, David's trying to seal a deal on the tables.'
-How about if I said 250 each, £500 for the pair?
-You're saying 500?
Yeah. Or 500, or 300 per table. How's that? If you just want one.
I think we need to come to a little bit better figure.
Possibly...360 for the pair.
-360 for the pair? What's that? 190 apiece?
180 apiece? That's very tight, Paul.
-Make it 200 quid a go.
-190 we'll have a deal.
'That's a fantastic sale,
'giving David a huge profit on the trio of tables.
'Philip has also done a deal for his stone carving. How much did he make?
'We'll find out shortly because it's time to tot up the totals.
'Without further ado, it's time to call our experts together
'and reveal who is today's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.'
-How was old Francais for you?
-I loved it. You?
-I had a great time.
-We did have a good time, didn't we? It was fun.
-What was your best bit?
Probably the best quality item was that water fountain.
The more I looked at it, it was astonishing.
-What about you?
-I love that little commode. I probably undersold it.
-What did you sell it for?
I sold it for 350 and I might have got perhaps £600, £800 for it.
If I'd have gone to a specialist, but I didn't.
The name of the game is to get your profit and move on.
-When you're a dealer, you see.
-I'm not that.
You've got your contact book. I'm like a fish out of water.
I think I've used that book up!
-Are you ready?
-Three, two, one...
-Philip, there's not much in it, actually.
-David, you're gloating.
-It's not nice.
-Don't get grumpy.
-Don't get grumpy.
'Philip's final deal didn't make enough to secure victory today.
'How much did he make?'
-OK, you can have it for 270 quid.
I'll have it at that.
'Philip made just over £100 profit,
'but not enough to steal victory from Devilish David Harper.
'Both experts have made sizeable profits and every penny will be going to their good causes.'
My charity is the Witham Hall, Barnard Castle's town hall.
It's a great place for young and old to have a good time.
It needs lots of funds just to keep things going.
I love Worcestershire, and the charity I've chosen is our local hospice, St Richard's hospice.
'Both treasure hunters fought hard, but it doesn't stop here.
'Tomorrow, they'll go head-to-head again in an auction house.'
-First purchase. 120. Yes!
I bought that. He-he!
You may hate him. You may love him. We're here to make profit.
