This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth is.

0:00:020:00:05

The show that takes the titans of the antiques trade

0:00:050:00:10

and pitches them against each other to see who can make the most money from buying and selling.

0:00:100:00:15

That's amazing. Truly amazing.

0:00:160:00:18

Today, the champion of the North, David Harper,

0:00:200:00:22

takes on the new boy from the South, James Braxton, in an all-out battle

0:00:220:00:27

for profit, giving you the inside view on the secrets of the trade.

0:00:270:00:31

Coming up, our experts show you how shopping for a deal can

0:00:310:00:36

bring on a twinge of nostalgia.

0:00:360:00:38

It's funny how when you see something, and it reminds you,

0:00:380:00:41

suddenly takes you back, to not that very many years ago, when I was 18.

0:00:410:00:45

They'll show you how a bargain is still a bargain, even if

0:00:450:00:48

it's a bit of a pig.

0:00:480:00:50

-It is ghastly, isn't it?

-It needs a bit of work done to it.

0:00:500:00:55

And we'll see the lengths our dealers will go to to seal the deal.

0:00:550:00:59

Thanks, that's marvellous(!)

0:01:010:01:03

Today's car boot bonanza pitches that master of the barter,

0:01:170:01:20

devilish David Harper,

0:01:200:01:23

against our well-to-do wheeler dealer James "Bingo" Braxton,

0:01:230:01:27

to see who can make the biggest profit from buying and selling antiques.

0:01:270:01:32

The stakes in this competition couldn't be higher.

0:01:320:01:35

It's the veteran northern negotiator...

0:01:350:01:39

Give me a car boot any day of the week. I love them.

0:01:390:01:41

..versus the new boy, have a go hero, by Jove!

0:01:410:01:46

Why I've left car booties so long, I do not know!

0:01:460:01:51

Today they're going head-to-head at Ashley Heath car boot sale in Dorset.

0:01:510:01:56

Their mission is to hunt down the hidden gems amongst the hundreds

0:01:560:01:59

of stalls, that they can sell on for the biggest possible profit.

0:01:590:02:03

They've each got £250 of their own money to spend,

0:02:040:02:08

and all the profit they make goes to their chosen charities.

0:02:080:02:11

There can be only one winner.

0:02:110:02:13

It's time to put these mighty dealers to the test.

0:02:130:02:18

-David!

-James!

0:02:200:02:22

James, it's early, and we're in Ringwood in Dorset and the sun is shining on us.

0:02:220:02:26

Yeah, blessed is the booter!

0:02:260:02:28

It's shining on these good people, isn't it?

0:02:280:02:30

-Car boot, have you been to a car boot?

-Never.

-Never?

-Never.

0:02:300:02:34

What about a plan of action, then, if you've never been to a place like this?

0:02:340:02:37

Why are you smiling so much, why aren't you worried?

0:02:370:02:40

I think there's just so much, isn't there?

0:02:400:02:43

-You just need a bit of cash to get by.

-You've got £250.

-And your plans?

0:02:430:02:47

I think for me, I mean, look around you, there is a sea of people

0:02:470:02:51

and car boots and stuff pouring out.

0:02:510:02:53

But you know, on occasions,

0:02:530:02:54

out of those car boots come real antiques and for me, that is the big thrill.

0:02:540:02:59

You can pull an antique or two out of a car book. Marvellous.

0:02:590:03:02

Well good luck. I think you've got a greater chance of pulling out a Cliff Richard vinyl.

0:03:020:03:07

-Ha! They are antique!

-They're an antique!

-Good luck.

0:03:070:03:10

So it looks like the wily old champion of the North

0:03:120:03:14

and the brave new hope of the South are the best of chums.

0:03:140:03:17

But don't let looks deceive you. This is war!

0:03:170:03:22

Veteran bootie hunter David is searching through the aisles,

0:03:220:03:27

seeking out bona fide antique pieces, buried in the bric-a-brac.

0:03:270:03:30

The best plan of attack at a car boot fair is to do exactly what James

0:03:300:03:34

and I have done and get here when it's cold and early.

0:03:340:03:37

The sun is shining but it's still very chilly,

0:03:370:03:40

because come about lunch time, this thing will be over

0:03:400:03:42

and all the very best pieces are gone, so you've got to get up early.

0:03:420:03:46

Never mind any sleep-ins, and get trudging around.

0:03:460:03:49

But the devilish one's new boy nemesis is anything but daunted.

0:03:490:03:53

He's formulated a strategy

0:03:530:03:55

and he comes armed with an indomitable optimism.

0:03:550:03:59

I've got a plan here. These people behind me arrived first.

0:03:590:04:04

These people in front of me arrived last.

0:04:040:04:07

Let's go to the fresh pickings.

0:04:070:04:09

Hopefully they're still unloading their vans

0:04:090:04:11

and we'll be able to leap on those bargains.

0:04:110:04:15

Follow me!

0:04:150:04:16

Lead on, Bingo! This chirpy chappie's enthusiasm is infectious.

0:04:160:04:21

Car booting on such a fabulous day, I'm a happy bunny.

0:04:210:04:25

As the apprentice launches himself into the action,

0:04:250:04:28

the old master follows his finely-trained nose and it leads him

0:04:280:04:32

to exactly what he came for.

0:04:320:04:34

Look at that. That is a real antique.

0:04:340:04:38

Good pieces of quality timber. That will hang on a wall.

0:04:380:04:43

That started life at about 1900, part of a very grand, posh piano.

0:04:430:04:48

You can date that very accurately by the style of the brass.

0:04:480:04:51

Very Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts.

0:04:510:04:55

This decoration is very Edwardian so it's circa 1900-1905.

0:04:550:04:58

Walnut, marquetry inlaid.

0:04:580:05:00

And you can tell the difference between marquetry inlay

0:05:000:05:04

and painted work by just running your nail over the decoration,

0:05:040:05:07

because marquetry is literally wood cut into wood, almost like a jigsaw.

0:05:070:05:11

-£25. Would £15 get it?

-£20 would buy it.

-£20?

0:05:110:05:18

£20 for something that's 110 years old, hand-made,

0:05:180:05:21

and would probably cost £500 to make it?

0:05:210:05:24

-It would, yeah.

-Go on, I'll have to have it. £20.

0:05:240:05:27

-Marvellous, thank you very much.

-Thank you.

-Cheers.

0:05:270:05:30

The devilish one is the first to strike in today's competition.

0:05:300:05:34

Sticking to his game plan

0:05:340:05:36

and bagging an antique piano panel with candle holders for just £20.

0:05:360:05:41

But our David is not done with his treasure chest of a stall yet,

0:05:410:05:45

and the next thing to catch his eagle eye is a 1960s pond yacht.

0:05:450:05:49

What sort of money could that be for me?

0:05:490:05:51

-I'll give it to you for £50.

-Could you? Is that the absolute best?

0:05:510:05:55

-It is, yeah.

-Couldn't do £40?

-I couldn't, no. I paid that for it.

0:05:550:05:57

Would you meet me halfway and I'll have a go?

0:05:570:06:00

It'll be the first pond yacht I'll have ever bought in my life.

0:06:000:06:03

And I'll go and sail it. If it sinks I'll lose all my £45, it's gone down,

0:06:030:06:07

-it's literally at the bottom of a pond!

-It definitely won't sink.

0:06:070:06:10

-Do it at £45 and I'll take a chance.

-Go on, then.

-Good man, thank you very much.

0:06:100:06:14

This is the absolute truth, I have never in my life bought a pond yacht,

0:06:160:06:20

but I have always had an inkling for one, but whenever I've seen them,

0:06:200:06:24

they've always been so much money, so, in one stall,

0:06:240:06:28

I buy a proper piece of cabinet-made Edwardian furniture,

0:06:280:06:31

and then literally a few feet away,

0:06:310:06:34

a pond yacht made in probably the 1960s or '70s,

0:06:340:06:37

so that will be a lot of fun. I hope!

0:06:370:06:40

David is a dealer in his element today,

0:06:400:06:43

that double purchase is an almighty start to the game.

0:06:430:06:47

But it looks like Bingo's battle plan of bee-lining

0:06:470:06:49

to the fresh booty might be about to pay off.

0:06:490:06:51

I like this, it's got great turning, a lamp standard.

0:06:530:06:56

It's made of beech, you can see the flecking here.

0:06:560:07:00

We know it's not oak or mahogany or walnut.

0:07:000:07:02

Good weight, probably weighted.

0:07:020:07:04

So if you bump into it, it doesn't fall over, as demonstrated, OK?

0:07:040:07:09

You can bash it, whatever. Rather nice.

0:07:090:07:12

Obviously you need to add a little value here.

0:07:120:07:14

Needs re-wiring and it needs a nice shade.

0:07:140:07:17

I know just the fellow to do this. Anyway, the nasty business of price.

0:07:170:07:22

I'd walk away if it's £20 or £30, but if it's below that, I'm interested.

0:07:220:07:28

-How much have you got on this?

-£10.

-£10?

0:07:280:07:32

That's that, I'm interested, I'm interested in it, then.

0:07:320:07:35

But it's beech, let's see if we can do a bit of bargaining. Fiver?

0:07:350:07:40

-Split the difference. £7.50.

-£7.50? And a little bit for luck, £7?

0:07:400:07:46

-Go on.

-£7, he's still smiling! He's smiling. Thank you very much indeed.

0:07:460:07:51

Give me a shake on that, £7. That's really kind.

0:07:510:07:54

In his first deal of the day, Bingo proves his mettle.

0:07:570:08:00

That's £7 for a beech lamp standard, and it's chocks away for Mr B.

0:08:000:08:05

The devilish one has a comfortable lead on his opponent,

0:08:080:08:12

and he's determined to keep it that way!

0:08:120:08:14

-Has James Braxton been to see you?

-No, he hasn't, he was over there.

-I will, I'll send him in to you.

0:08:140:08:20

But if I send him in, will you charge him a bit more?

0:08:200:08:22

-Of course, for you I will.

-Would you mind?

-I'll double up.

-Good man.

0:08:220:08:26

-I shall double up.

-Perfect, it's a plan.

0:08:260:08:28

In fact, there you go, I'm going to change my plan.

0:08:280:08:31

My plan is to get stallholders to charge James Braxton much more money,

0:08:310:08:34

then I will have a better chance of winning.

0:08:340:08:36

No more Mr Nice Guy! It seems the devil in our David is on the rise.

0:08:360:08:41

DRAMATIC CRASHING

0:08:410:08:44

But Bingo is far from floundering. He's found a pair of ashtrays.

0:08:440:08:49

I like these, they're nice, aren't they? Good weight.

0:08:490:08:53

-They are, Whitefriar.

-Whitefriar? Ahh! Very nice.

0:08:530:08:57

-And by Dickens, our boy seals the deal at £10.

-Thanking you!

0:08:570:09:02

Our warring warriors have bagged two items each,

0:09:020:09:06

but our car boot veteran shows no sign of easing the pace.

0:09:060:09:09

-He's spotted a collection of four milking stools.

-These are unusual.

0:09:090:09:14

-Are they fresh?

-I'm not sure if they're kosher or re-pros.

0:09:140:09:18

I've seen these coming in from, I think, Eastern Europe.

0:09:180:09:21

Copies of 18th century little milking stools or child stools.

0:09:210:09:25

-If they're a reproduction, they're very good.

-They're very, very good.

0:09:250:09:30

Even the nails themselves.

0:09:300:09:32

Hand-forged nails, or pretending to be at least.

0:09:320:09:34

-What sort of money are they?

-They're £15 each.

-£15 each?

0:09:340:09:39

I'll do you a deal, £50 for the lot.

0:09:390:09:42

-I might have a go. Could I buy the lot, a tenner a piece?

-Yeah.

0:09:420:09:47

-Good man.

-How's that?

-I'll have a go, thank you very much. Cheers, yeah.

0:09:470:09:51

And David bags his third purchase of the day,

0:09:510:09:55

four 18th-century-style milking stools for £40,

0:09:550:09:59

which means that, once again, James is playing catch-up,

0:09:590:10:02

but his tactic of sticking to the late arrivals

0:10:020:10:05

is unearthing some interesting pieces.

0:10:050:10:08

Tell me about this pot. It's rather nice.

0:10:080:10:10

-It's Colin Kellam.

-Colin Kellam?

-I think that's how you pronounce it.

0:10:100:10:14

He's quite well known for the cockerels

0:10:140:10:17

and the farmyard-type animals.

0:10:170:10:19

-But there's no room left in my kitchen.

-Are you overflowing?

-Yes!

0:10:190:10:24

-This is rather nice.

-A nice stoneware bowl.

0:10:240:10:28

-It has a good feel about it.

-Yes.

-How much have you got on this?

0:10:280:10:32

-I was looking for £6 for that one.

-£6. Also this caught my eye.

0:10:320:10:36

-Yes.

-I like the fellow there.

0:10:360:10:38

Oh, it's got quite a lot of damage at the back, isn't it?

0:10:380:10:41

I don't think it's damage,

0:10:410:10:43

it's whether it's a bookcase or a wall piece.

0:10:430:10:46

-It depends which way up you hold it.

-How do you think it works?

0:10:460:10:49

I've been having it like that with books in.

0:10:490:10:53

-I see.

-That looks quite attractive on the end.

0:10:530:10:55

But looking at it, I know nothing,

0:10:550:10:57

but I'm figuring that if it sat that way,

0:10:570:10:59

that would be why there would be something on the top.

0:10:590:11:02

So you might have had a structure around here.

0:11:020:11:05

This is against the wall. It's nice, isn't it?

0:11:050:11:08

How much have you got on that?

0:11:080:11:10

-That was 14.

-Could you do the two for 15?

0:11:100:11:14

I could do the two for 16 and then we'd both be smiling.

0:11:140:11:18

16, course, come on.

0:11:180:11:19

By Jove, our new boy has charmed his way to a double whammy

0:11:210:11:26

for just £16 which puts our southern gent

0:11:260:11:29

on four purchases to David's three.

0:11:290:11:31

But no item of value, no matter how small,

0:11:310:11:34

escapes the laser-beam focus of our northern champ.

0:11:340:11:38

That brings back many happy memories.

0:11:380:11:41

My first proper watch when I was 18, my mum bought me a gold Rama.

0:11:410:11:46

Rama is a Swiss maker, a very small maker.

0:11:460:11:49

This one probably dates to the 1950s or 1960s.

0:11:490:11:51

Really good, high quality. I have still got mine.

0:11:510:11:55

It's dog chewed, it's cracked, it's got dents in it,

0:11:550:11:59

but occasionally I still wear it and it works just perfectly.

0:11:590:12:02

A very good thing.

0:12:020:12:05

It's funny how when you see something and it suddenly takes you back to,

0:12:050:12:09

not that very many years ago when I was 18, but still.

0:12:090:12:13

I know my poor mother had to save up a long time for it.

0:12:160:12:21

But anyway I have still got it.

0:12:230:12:26

My first proper watch when I was 18.

0:12:270:12:29

Aw, now that brings back happy memories.

0:12:290:12:32

Your parents obviously had more money than mine. Mine was a Timex.

0:12:320:12:36

Come on, David, before you get all misty-eyed,

0:12:360:12:39

let's see if you can bag the thing.

0:12:390:12:41

-What kind of money is that?

-I have got 85 on that.

-85.

0:12:410:12:45

-Would 50 quid buy it?

-I could come down to 75.

-Really?

0:12:450:12:50

That really is...

0:12:500:12:52

I don't know whether I'm being led by my heart here

0:12:530:12:56

because it reminds me so much of my watch.

0:12:560:13:00

It is a nice try, David, but this vendor's not falling

0:13:000:13:03

for your heart-rending tales of timepieces gone by.

0:13:030:13:06

Do it for 70 and I'll have it.

0:13:060:13:09

Good man. Thank you very much indeed.

0:13:090:13:11

Led by my heart more than anything else,

0:13:110:13:14

but I don't think it matters.

0:13:140:13:15

As long as I can turn it over and make a small profit.

0:13:150:13:18

You get to own something of fantastic quality for a very short time

0:13:180:13:21

and that's part of the thrill.

0:13:210:13:23

Not quite the bargain he was hoping for,

0:13:230:13:25

but David has sealed the deal

0:13:250:13:27

and our brave boys are level pegging with four items each.

0:13:270:13:30

It's anyone's game and jolly hockey sticks,

0:13:320:13:36

our Bingo's back at his favourite stall.

0:13:360:13:39

When I was here before, this did catch my eye.

0:13:390:13:42

I've been looking elsewhere, but I've been drawn back by the stick.

0:13:420:13:46

Tell me about it. It's a nice item. It's old.

0:13:460:13:50

It is old. I don't know how old,

0:13:500:13:52

but it certainly isn't the sort I used to play with.

0:13:520:13:55

I think this is something my mother might have played with.

0:13:550:13:58

This is sort of '40s, '50s. How did you come by it?

0:13:580:14:01

-I must admit, I found it on the tip.

-Which requires no money.

0:14:010:14:05

It does require money. But of small worth.

0:14:050:14:10

-How much do you want for it?

-I thought because it is so good

0:14:100:14:13

and you look like a hockey player, £8.

0:14:130:14:16

£8?! I thought you were going to say 80p! What about £4?

0:14:160:14:19

-What about six?

-£6, £5, come on.

0:14:190:14:22

-£5.50.

-£5.50, that's a deal.

0:14:220:14:26

Yes, well done, Bingo, that's a goal.

0:14:260:14:30

With James on five items and David on four,

0:14:300:14:33

this clash of the titans is still too close to call.

0:14:330:14:37

-I knew it, you've saved me a seat, James.

-Come and sit down.

0:14:370:14:41

Isn't this just marvellous?

0:14:410:14:43

-How is your first car boot going?

-Lovely.

0:14:430:14:45

Rushing around, buying stuff, sitting down having an ice-cream.

0:14:450:14:49

-Is it filling a void, James?

-I think it is.

0:14:490:14:53

There has been a gap in my life and now I have found it.

0:14:530:14:56

I feel complete, David.

0:14:560:14:57

I think this is one of the best car boots,

0:14:570:15:00

for your first car boot, you've been very lucky.

0:15:000:15:03

-Am I spoilt?

-You're totally spoilt. I've been to some horrors.

0:15:030:15:07

This is an absolute stonker. How are you getting on spending?

0:15:070:15:12

Yeah, I'm doing well, I'm buying masses, but I've spent about £50.

0:15:120:15:16

You're kidding? I've spent loads of money.

0:15:160:15:19

Every time I say I'd like that, I go to reach for a 20 quid

0:15:190:15:22

and they say, "That will be four."

0:15:220:15:24

-How disappointing is that?

-They have got no idea, have they?

0:15:240:15:28

I bought something today that I have never in my life bought.

0:15:280:15:33

-And I think it's amazing that I bought it at a car boot fair.

-What?

0:15:330:15:37

-I'm not going to tell you.

-Cliff Richard record?

0:15:370:15:39

I might have bought it for you. What about you?

0:15:390:15:42

-Have you bought anything exciting?

-One item is exciting

0:15:420:15:45

-which I think I'll send to auction.

-Really?

0:15:450:15:48

Are you going to save it till the end of the day to reveal to me?

0:15:480:15:51

-I will.

-I think we've got five minutes,

0:15:510:15:54

shall we just enjoy it and then get back into the melee?

0:15:540:15:57

Yeah, that would be lovely. Good idea.

0:15:570:15:59

And as our brave boys snatch five minutes' respite

0:16:010:16:04

from the cut and thrust of buying,

0:16:040:16:06

let's take a look and see how they are tallying up.

0:16:060:16:08

They both started the day with £250 of their own money.

0:16:080:16:13

David has made four big purchases and spent a total of £175

0:16:130:16:19

leaving him with just £75 to spend.

0:16:190:16:23

James is ahead on purchases, he's bagged five items,

0:16:230:16:28

but has only spent £38.50

0:16:280:16:30

leaving him a whopping £211.50 in his kitty.

0:16:300:16:35

Our trading titans hurl themselves back

0:16:370:16:40

into this cut-throat car boot corker.

0:16:400:16:42

And they are champing at the bit to get stuck in.

0:16:420:16:45

James is just so fallen into this car boot thing like that.

0:16:450:16:49

I really thought he was going to be a fish out of water,

0:16:490:16:52

struggling, but he's having a great time.

0:16:520:16:55

This is a marvellous place. Really enjoying this morning.

0:16:550:16:59

Back out into the fair and get some more spending done.

0:16:590:17:04

Why I have left car booties so long, I do not know.

0:17:040:17:08

Hmmm, Bingo is hooked.

0:17:080:17:09

Booting is in his blood and he's not about to let up.

0:17:090:17:12

He's making a beeline for the swine.

0:17:120:17:16

It is ghastly, isn't it?

0:17:160:17:18

It needs a bit of work done to it.

0:17:180:17:21

-Do you want an offer from me? £1.

-£1?

0:17:210:17:25

-How does that sound?

-Put an 0 behind it.

0:17:250:17:28

-Put an 0 behind the pound?!

-And that is a bargain for you.

0:17:280:17:32

That's not a bargain for me, chief. It's quite fun, though.

0:17:320:17:36

Can you help me out? Nine?

0:17:360:17:39

-Nine.

-Nine is the offer.

-Yeah, come on then. OK.

0:17:390:17:44

Well done. Thank you. It's a great sale.

0:17:440:17:49

If you could deliver it...

0:17:490:17:50

Deliver it?! That would be an extra fiver!

0:17:500:17:53

Yes, that is £9 paid for Percy,

0:17:530:17:55

but has our Bingo made a pig of a buy?

0:17:550:17:58

I don't know why I've bought this, it's pretty ghastly, isn't it?

0:17:580:18:04

It's concrete, reconstituted concrete, so shoved in a mould.

0:18:040:18:07

We have this tacky gamekeeper going on here.

0:18:070:18:11

But he's a rather fun, humorous pig.

0:18:110:18:14

I've got a buyer for this back in East Sussex, I hope.

0:18:140:18:18

At £9, it's still pretty ghastly, but in a funny way I like it.

0:18:180:18:23

Good for you, Bingo.

0:18:230:18:24

Let's hope someone else does and you could be bringing home the bacon.

0:18:240:18:28

David has picked up a lady. And he spent just £1 on her.

0:18:310:18:35

If you could imagine her on a side table,

0:18:350:18:37

on a picture stand underneath a lamp in the right place

0:18:370:18:42

she could look like a 19th-century work of art

0:18:420:18:48

worth hundreds or thousands of pounds.

0:18:480:18:51

But instead she costs a quid.

0:18:510:18:53

And David's quest for the unusually decorative doesn't end there.

0:18:530:18:57

This is unusual stock for car boot, isn't it?

0:18:570:19:01

The African tribal pieces are interesting.

0:19:010:19:03

I quite like that stool.

0:19:030:19:05

They say it's Congolese. Is it from the Congo, do you know?

0:19:050:19:09

Yes, so I'm told.

0:19:090:19:11

I have had African art before,

0:19:110:19:13

but the thing is with this stuff, it's very difficult

0:19:130:19:16

to put an accurate date on it because it can be cheap and nasty,

0:19:160:19:20

as a tourist piece.

0:19:200:19:21

Or if it was 19th century by a known tribe,

0:19:210:19:26

and a known character, and you can paint a picture

0:19:260:19:28

and tell a story, these things can be worth hundreds of pounds.

0:19:280:19:33

But I don't know.

0:19:330:19:34

Well, David, if you don't know,

0:19:340:19:36

you will have to take a deep breath and jump.

0:19:360:19:39

What would the very best...

0:19:400:19:42

It's the end of the day, you want to go home?

0:19:420:19:44

-25.

-20?

-Yes.

-Go on then, lovely.

0:19:440:19:46

Thank you very much for being an absolute delight.

0:19:460:19:50

So, I don't know what it is really.

0:19:510:19:54

It's obviously African,

0:19:540:19:55

whether it's Congolese, I have no idea.

0:19:550:19:57

Maybe a little bit of research,

0:19:570:19:59

but it doesn't really matter whether he's ten years old or 50 years old,

0:19:590:20:03

he's within that bracket.

0:20:030:20:05

I think I'll get my super-duper wax on that,

0:20:050:20:07

spent 10 or 15 minutes buffing him up and he'll look cracking.

0:20:070:20:11

I think for 20 quid, it's a car boot bargain.

0:20:110:20:14

David bags himself an African stool for just £20.

0:20:140:20:19

Our boys are neck-and-neck on six purchases each.

0:20:190:20:23

But the devilish one is way ahead on spending.

0:20:230:20:25

Bingo has still got just over £200 in his pocket,

0:20:250:20:29

and very little time left before the final whistle.

0:20:290:20:32

So, go Bingo!

0:20:320:20:34

I like this. Good sound fellow. Nice and weighty.

0:20:340:20:39

A three-tier occasional table. Got a bit of age, sort of '20s, '30s.

0:20:390:20:44

Has done some good service.

0:20:440:20:47

-Now how much have you got on that?

-£5, probably.

0:20:470:20:49

-Not a lot of money, is it?

-No.

0:20:490:20:51

-Nice turning, isn't it?

-Yeah, yeah.

-Very nice turning.

0:20:510:20:54

-It wants a good polish up.

-Yeah.

0:20:540:20:57

OK, I'll take it for a fiver. There you are.

0:20:570:21:00

You can have a nice new one as well!

0:21:000:21:03

-Yes.

-Good, thanks a lot.

-Thank you.

0:21:030:21:06

£5 isn't the biggest spend, but Bingo has notched up another addition to his arsenal,

0:21:060:21:11

and swiftly follows it up with a lampshade.

0:21:110:21:14

-£1.50.

-£1.50?

0:21:140:21:17

£1.50, done.

0:21:170:21:20

The lucky fellow even gets another lamp stand thrown in for free.

0:21:200:21:23

He's gone lamp crazy. Our brave boys are booted out.

0:21:230:21:27

So it's time to find out who has spent what.

0:21:270:21:30

Devilish and Bingo started with £250 of their own money to spend.

0:21:300:21:37

David made six purchases but spent £196.

0:21:370:21:42

James bought eight items, but he did it for a tiny spend of just £54.

0:21:420:21:49

We'll see who's played the blinder when our boys start selling.

0:21:510:21:54

But now it's time for our duelling dealers to sneak a peek at each other's booty.

0:21:540:21:59

I didn't expect really to end up in a car boot,

0:22:010:22:04

actually physically in a car boot, James.

0:22:040:22:06

-Welcome to my boot!

-To your world - your new world of car booting!

0:22:060:22:11

Looking at your items, I'm beginning to see experience at car boots.

0:22:110:22:15

I think you're just being very modest and very kind. Looking at your items, I have got to say,

0:22:150:22:20

I mean, the pig is absolutely, fantastically, positively revolting!

0:22:200:22:25

-It really is ghastly, isn't it?

-I think it is great!

-Yes, it is!

0:22:250:22:28

Hopefully my buyer will love it. Your pond yacht is a winner. That is glorious.

0:22:280:22:34

You know, James I've never bought a pond yacht. That's the item I've never bought.

0:22:340:22:38

-How much did you pay for that?

-What do you think?

0:22:380:22:41

-50 to 100?

-Yeah, 45.

0:22:410:22:43

That's a good buy. Well done. Well done, well done, very good.

0:22:430:22:47

-What's your favourite item?

-I think that's amazing for a fiver.

0:22:470:22:51

-The three-tier of occasional table. I'll lose the casters, they add nothing to it.

-Yeah, sure.

0:22:510:22:56

Well, it's been a fabulous day, James. Thanks, great fun.

0:22:560:22:59

-Good luck, David, on the selling.

-You too. Best of luck.

0:22:590:23:03

Come on, this is an epic battle, not a mutual-appreciation fest.

0:23:060:23:11

They're charming chaps, these two, without a doubt,

0:23:110:23:13

but the time for pleasantries is over.

0:23:130:23:16

Now our proud profit pursuers will face an even tougher challenge.

0:23:160:23:20

They've got to sell, sell, sell,

0:23:200:23:22

with the aim of making as much profit as they possibly can,

0:23:220:23:26

because only one man can reign victorious.

0:23:260:23:30

Our Vikings of the vintage return home to plot out their selling strategies.

0:23:300:23:35

To the south, East Sussex, the stomping ground of Bingo Braxton.

0:23:350:23:40

And to the north, Teesdale, the realm of the devilish one.

0:23:400:23:45

The Indian carved figure at £1 was THE steal of the day.

0:23:450:23:50

And for me, the best bargain of the day.

0:23:500:23:53

I will make good money on that one. Just you watch me.

0:23:530:23:56

As well as his Indian carved figure, David will also have to sell

0:23:560:24:00

his marquetry panel with candleholders, an African stool,

0:24:000:24:05

four 18th-century milking stools,

0:24:050:24:07

a '50s gold watch and a pond yacht.

0:24:070:24:11

And what does the irrepressible James think of all his bounty?

0:24:110:24:15

The concrete pig is quite comical. It's a rather fun little item.

0:24:150:24:19

It wasn't a lot of money. I've got some neighbours who rear pigs. They'll love it.

0:24:190:24:25

He also needs to sell his two ashtrays,

0:24:250:24:28

a beech lamp standard, a lampshade with a free stand,

0:24:280:24:33

an Edwardian book bracket,

0:24:330:24:35

this stoneware cockerel bowl,

0:24:350:24:37

a hockey stick and a three-tier table.

0:24:370:24:40

Our canny competitors will be pulling out all the stops to find buyers for their items.

0:24:400:24:45

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

0:24:450:24:48

no deal is truly sealed.

0:24:480:24:51

So, it's three, two, one and Bingo blast-off!

0:24:510:24:54

Like a rocket, he burns his way across East Sussex on the hunt for his first potential sale.

0:24:540:25:00

I'm off to see a friend, Joe Hall. He's an interior designer.

0:25:000:25:05

I've sent him a photo of my oak table.

0:25:050:25:07

He rather likes it, and I rather hope to make a profit from it.

0:25:070:25:11

And we rather hope you do too, Bingo.

0:25:110:25:14

Joe, I've brought you this lovely little table. Shall I...

0:25:140:25:18

Here is the fella. What do you think, Joe?

0:25:180:25:21

-Quite like it.

-Good.

0:25:210:25:22

As you know, oak, you have a couple of oak things round about you.

0:25:220:25:26

-But what I liked about it was the fact it was three tiers.

-Yeah.

0:25:260:25:30

And it had this open side,

0:25:300:25:32

so you could put it next door to a sofa or whatever,

0:25:320:25:35

and then you have these rather nice galleries retaining.

0:25:350:25:38

I like these little trolleys, though, I think they're very useful.

0:25:380:25:42

How much would you give me for this?

0:25:420:25:44

-£15?

-15...

0:25:440:25:45

£15! Dear, oh, dear.

0:25:480:25:51

What, and sell it for 100?

0:25:510:25:54

BINGO LAUGHS

0:25:540:25:57

I was thinking somewhere in the region of 30 to 50, Joe.

0:25:570:26:00

HE LAUGHS

0:26:000:26:01

OK, 30 or 50. I think I prefer the 30 to the 50.

0:26:010:26:05

-I can sell you it at 30, Joe.

-Yeah?

0:26:050:26:07

-Yep, go on.

-Got ourselves a deal.

-Thank you.

0:26:070:26:10

Three tiers for Bingo!

0:26:100:26:12

It may look a laugh a minute for beaming Bingo

0:26:120:26:15

but he's sold his triple tiered table for a £25 profit

0:26:150:26:19

and he powers into the lead.

0:26:190:26:21

But Devilish David's never been one for hanging about.

0:26:210:26:25

He's heading for Darlington, with the African stool he bought for £20,

0:26:250:26:29

to pay a visit to a friend who deals in African artefacts.

0:26:290:26:32

-Sean.

-David.

-Good to see you.

0:26:320:26:36

-Likewise, and welcome.

-Are you well?

0:26:360:26:38

What on earth have you got?

0:26:380:26:39

What do you think about that handsome chap?

0:26:390:26:42

-He's handsome.

-He's very handsome.

0:26:420:26:44

Lot of character. Looking at that, I see a lot of character.

0:26:440:26:47

He signifies something to some tribe somewhere.

0:26:470:26:51

I'm hoping you're going to enlighten me.

0:26:510:26:53

Where it's from exactly, I have no idea,

0:26:530:26:55

but it's going to be very interesting finding out.

0:26:550:26:58

The size of his hands signifies something,

0:26:580:27:01

the thinness of his body and the long legs and the long limbs

0:27:010:27:05

and that face all mean something.

0:27:050:27:06

He looks quite subservient. You're serving on him as you sit on him.

0:27:060:27:10

-Yes.

-So I wouldn't say he's a deity.

0:27:100:27:12

-No. Not like a god, then.

-Precisely.

0:27:120:27:15

I think he'd be for nothing at 50 quid.

0:27:150:27:17

-I think 50 quid would be stretching it.

-Really?

0:27:170:27:20

I think I'd offer you £40 for it.

0:27:200:27:22

But I don't want him to be offended,

0:27:220:27:24

because who knows what kind of a figure he is?

0:27:240:27:28

But I reckon you paid between £18 and £22 for that

0:27:280:27:32

so I think £40 is spot on the money

0:27:320:27:34

for both of us to make a handsome profit.

0:27:340:27:37

-Scarily, you're bang on. I paid £20 for it.

-Ah, right.

0:27:370:27:40

-So you're bang in the middle.

-Between 18 and 22 is 20, isn't it?

0:27:400:27:43

-I'll take your money. Double bubble.

-A pleasure, David.

0:27:430:27:46

Our whirling dervish of a dealmaker makes a tidy little profit of £20.

0:27:460:27:51

Another sale in the bag!

0:27:540:27:56

Oh, just look at that devilish delight.

0:27:580:28:00

But it's going to be much harder beating Bingo than that bongo.

0:28:000:28:04

David takes another great leap forward

0:28:040:28:07

when he sells his watch and makes a profit of £50.

0:28:070:28:10

He's a moneymaking machine!

0:28:100:28:13

Bingo urgently needs to get back into the race.

0:28:130:28:17

He's going to see his old friend Andrew, who owns a lighting factory,

0:28:170:28:21

for some help getting his beech lamp standard

0:28:210:28:24

into peak selling and safety condition.

0:28:240:28:27

Andrew, here is the lamp standard I spoke of.

0:28:270:28:31

-And here is the rather ghastly shade.

-You're not joking.

0:28:310:28:35

What, it wouldn't past many tests then?

0:28:380:28:40

It would not pass many tests.

0:28:400:28:41

I want to sort of transform this item.

0:28:410:28:43

I want to sort of recycle it for a more contemporary buyer.

0:28:430:28:47

Now, what would you suggest?

0:28:470:28:49

Well, fine lines, fine edges,

0:28:490:28:51

and colours as well, you can use colours with it.

0:28:510:28:55

Something like, perhaps, something like that.

0:28:550:28:57

It's probably got one or two little marks in it, but it's...

0:28:570:29:01

You're taking me well out of my comfort zone, there, Andrew.

0:29:010:29:04

It's something I wouldn't have normally chosen.

0:29:040:29:07

-You always said I was an old fogey.

-I've got a coat for you too.

0:29:070:29:12

This is finest yurt!

0:29:120:29:14

-This, certainly, is bringing me into the future.

-It is, very much.

0:29:140:29:17

How much is it going to cost me?

0:29:170:29:18

It's slightly second, it's been used, it's not what you actually wanted,

0:29:180:29:23

so this would now sell through a retail shop

0:29:230:29:27

for about, say, 30 quid.

0:29:270:29:29

30 would be fabulous, and it transforms the whole thing.

0:29:290:29:32

I think you've got real added value there.

0:29:320:29:35

Right, well, I'm counting now. Five minutes.

0:29:350:29:38

Bingo spends an extra £30 from his kitty

0:29:380:29:41

on getting his lamp up to standard.

0:29:410:29:43

But he's quick to start making money back.

0:29:430:29:46

He nets a £30 profit from his ashtrays

0:29:460:29:49

and then wallops one into the back of the net

0:29:490:29:52

by selling his hockey stick for £30,

0:29:520:29:54

making nearly £25 profit.

0:29:540:29:56

Bingo's really taking the game to his nemesis.

0:29:570:30:01

But devilish David, King of Barnard Castle

0:30:010:30:04

(in his dreams, anyway), isn't about to surrender.

0:30:040:30:08

He's got a hunch his friend Astley

0:30:080:30:10

might be interested in his marquetry panel.

0:30:100:30:13

-So, you are into recycling.

-Yeah.

-In a big way.

0:30:130:30:17

-This has been recycled once already.

-OK.

-Now, I'm thinking for you

0:30:170:30:21

and your coat requirements, your hats and scarves,

0:30:210:30:24

could you do something with that?

0:30:240:30:25

Absolutely. Look, it's wonderful.

0:30:250:30:27

What I would like to do, if I could get some other walnut,

0:30:270:30:31

is put a small shelf along here as well, just sticking out so much,

0:30:310:30:35

to put gloves or whatever when people come in.

0:30:350:30:38

-Good idea.

-You know?

-Good idea, yeah.

0:30:380:30:41

And, Astley, as you know, antiques are not expensive.

0:30:410:30:44

This panel, if you got someone to make that for you,

0:30:440:30:46

it would cost you hundreds and hundreds of pounds.

0:30:460:30:50

If you could find anybody good enough...

0:30:500:30:52

To do that craftsmanship. No, you couldn't. Not nowadays.

0:30:520:30:55

I don't know where you'd go with that. Absolutely not.

0:30:550:30:59

I could start somewhere about £30 for that. You're not far wrong.

0:30:590:31:03

-Really? You're not far wrong. I was going to ask for 45 quid.

-Oh, wow.

0:31:030:31:06

What do you mean, "Oh, wow"?

0:31:060:31:09

£45 for something made 100 years ago, fantastic quality?

0:31:090:31:12

-OK, make it 40, perhaps.

-Will you have it?

0:31:120:31:15

-I'll have it for 40.

-Invite me round for tea when you've got your hats.

0:31:150:31:18

Oh, Sir Sell-a-Lot does it again.

0:31:180:31:21

He pillages £20 from the treasure chest of profit.

0:31:210:31:25

Has that put the devilish one back in the driving seat?

0:31:250:31:28

Well, so far, Devilish David has sold three of his six items

0:31:280:31:32

and has a profit of £90.

0:31:320:31:35

But Bingo is hot on his heels.

0:31:350:31:37

He's also sold three items

0:31:370:31:39

and has amassed a profit of nearly £80 along the way.

0:31:390:31:43

It just couldn't be closer

0:31:430:31:46

and brave Sir Bingo of Sussex

0:31:460:31:48

is ready to launch his next almighty counter-strike in the battle

0:31:480:31:52

for the Put Your Money crown.

0:31:520:31:54

He's taking his concrete porker down the road to his neighbour Jo,

0:31:540:31:59

who, let's just say, has a bit of a thing for the piggies.

0:31:590:32:02

-You look excited.

-Yes, I am.

0:32:120:32:15

-And you've got a little collection here, haven't you?

-I have, yes.

0:32:160:32:21

Here we are.

0:32:210:32:22

Well, he's a very fine pig, James.

0:32:220:32:24

He's got wellies on,

0:32:240:32:26

lovely jacket.

0:32:260:32:28

-I like that, floppy ears.

-He's rather fun, isn't he?

-Yeah.

0:32:280:32:32

Now, how does it compare to others?

0:32:320:32:34

Well, it's rather nice.

0:32:340:32:36

How much are you willing to give me for this?

0:32:360:32:38

How much are you asking, James?

0:32:380:32:41

Um, I'm asking, of course,

0:32:410:32:42

a lot of money for this rare and important piece.

0:32:420:32:46

-Absolutely.

-Our little piggy,

0:32:460:32:48

I was hoping between sort of £30 and £50 for him.

0:32:480:32:51

-Were you really?

-Yeah.

0:32:510:32:54

How do you rate him?

0:32:540:32:55

I rate him about £15.

0:32:570:32:59

-15?

-Yeah.

0:32:590:33:01

Now, could you double it, Jo? How about 30?

0:33:010:33:04

30, I'll have him.

0:33:040:33:05

-Good.

-And he can go with my collection.

0:33:050:33:08

Kerching! Bingo makes £21 profit from his statue,

0:33:080:33:11

and it's all going into his piggy bank.

0:33:110:33:14

-Oh, that's very kind of you, Jo.

-That's all right.

0:33:140:33:17

Thank you for my pig.

0:33:170:33:19

Funnily enough, while I'm here, I've got something else in the car.

0:33:190:33:22

-Oh, no.

-Can I...? You stay there, and I'll quickly run along.

0:33:220:33:26

MUSIC: "Benny Hill" theme

0:33:260:33:28

I say! What's he up to?

0:33:280:33:31

You like to do a little light painting in the evening, don't you?

0:33:370:33:41

Yes, I do, James.

0:33:410:33:42

Now, what do you think of this very fine fellow?

0:33:420:33:45

It's a pretty grotty old fellow

0:33:450:33:47

but it needs your magic touch, doesn't it? Your painterly skills.

0:33:470:33:52

-I suppose I could do a paint job on it.

-You could do a paint job.

0:33:520:33:55

-That's what I thought.

-Fiver?

-Fiver?

0:33:550:33:58

How about a tenner for the two, Jo? Come on!

0:33:580:34:02

£7.50.

0:34:020:34:03

-£7.50 for the two?

-Yeah.

0:34:030:34:06

-£7.50?

-Yeah.

0:34:060:34:09

Because I've got to paint the shade, James.

0:34:090:34:11

-You'll paint the shade as well?

-Oh, yes.

0:34:110:34:14

So, how will it look in the end?

0:34:140:34:16

-Fabulous.

-OK, tenner, then.

0:34:160:34:19

Oh, thank you!

0:34:190:34:21

Oh, he's delighted with that one.

0:34:240:34:26

Bingo will try every trick in the book to make a sale,

0:34:260:34:29

and he certainly has fun doing it.

0:34:290:34:32

He takes home £8.50 profit from the lampshade and free stand.

0:34:320:34:36

He's really going for now.

0:34:360:34:38

He takes his stoneware cockerel bowl to his friend Sarah.

0:34:380:34:42

It's fully decorated. Would you be happy giving me £20 for that?

0:34:420:34:46

I'd be very happy to give you 20 for that.

0:34:460:34:48

And makes a healthy £14 profit from the sale.

0:34:480:34:52

Bingo the Bargaining Behemoth blasts on.

0:34:520:34:55

His book bracket's been to Benedict for restoration

0:34:550:34:58

and now Mr Braxton brings it to buddy Bill Bruce near Brighton,

0:34:580:35:02

and he bargains brilliantly!

0:35:020:35:05

45?

0:35:050:35:06

Could you go the extra measure? Do you think it will lift them?

0:35:060:35:09

It's good, James, actually. I can really imagine somebody buying that.

0:35:090:35:13

-That sounds like a deal. 45?

-Yes. Fabulous. Thank you. Done.

0:35:130:35:16

The clock man takes the bracket for £45,

0:35:160:35:19

which gives our James £20 profit after restoration fees.

0:35:190:35:23

Once again, the game has turned. Bingo's taking the advantage.

0:35:240:35:28

The devilish one needs to make a sale.

0:35:280:35:30

Otherwise, he could be cut adrift.

0:35:300:35:32

So, he takes his pond yacht down to the banks of the River Tees

0:35:320:35:36

to meet an old antique dealer friend.

0:35:360:35:38

Mel, come on, talk to me about this pond yacht.

0:35:380:35:41

-It's a boy's toy. I know you love toys.

-I like this sort of thing, yes.

0:35:410:35:45

It's probably quite a good quality thing.

0:35:450:35:48

-Could it be for you?

-Depends on the price.

0:35:480:35:50

OK, if I said to you it's under 100, would that make you really pleased?

0:35:500:35:55

-Yeah, I would expect it to be...

-How far under 100?

0:35:550:35:58

-Around about 75 quid.

-OK.

0:36:010:36:03

Would you go 85 quid, if it actually is seaworthy?

0:36:050:36:08

Prove to me it'll sail, I'll meet you halfway. 80 quid.

0:36:080:36:11

-OK, let's shake on that.

-OK.

-If it doesn't sink, you give me 80 quid.

0:36:110:36:15

-Yes.

-Ohh, David's got his legs out!

0:36:150:36:18

So, let's get this straight. If it sails, it's a sale!

0:36:180:36:22

MEL LAUGHS

0:36:220:36:23

Thanks, Mel, it's marvellous(!)

0:36:230:36:26

Wahay! Oh! My legs are...

0:36:280:36:33

What do you reckon, Mel? Is it floating?

0:36:330:36:35

-It's definitely floating, yes.

-Do we need any more?

-No.

0:36:350:36:40

-Can I come out?

-You can come out, now.

0:36:400:36:43

The ship sails, and David docks a decent profit of £35.

0:36:430:36:49

How much did you pay for it? 80? Should have been 800!

0:36:490:36:53

Cheap at half the price!

0:36:530:36:56

Well, I'm even more freezing cold than I was a few minutes ago.

0:36:560:37:00

I'm drenched.

0:37:000:37:02

My trousers feel very heavy indeed, but you know what?

0:37:020:37:05

That was fantastic. I feel invigorated,

0:37:050:37:08

I made some profit and I feel alive!

0:37:080:37:11

Marvellous! Love it!

0:37:110:37:13

Good for you, David.

0:37:150:37:17

Enthusiasm like that will put you on top of the world!

0:37:170:37:20

The devilish one goes on to sell his 18th-century style stools

0:37:200:37:24

for £100, which gives him a stratospheric profit of £60

0:37:240:37:28

and blasts him way into the lead.

0:37:280:37:31

All Bingo's hopes now rest on his beech lamp standard that he's had had fully restored and tested.

0:37:310:37:36

He needs to get a good price for it, if he's to take today's crown.

0:37:360:37:41

So he's off to London to see James, an old school chum.

0:37:410:37:44

I'm here to see a great friend of mine,

0:37:440:37:46

who runs this shoe business. Currently, he lives upstairs,

0:37:460:37:49

but he's about to move and I know he wants another lamp standard.

0:37:490:37:54

Let's see if I can make a profit.

0:37:540:37:56

-Mr C.

-Mr B.

0:37:580:38:00

I know that your poor wife, Ute,

0:38:000:38:04

has never had her own lamp standard, has she?

0:38:040:38:07

No, and I thought it would be quite a nice treat to...

0:38:070:38:10

-It would be very good, with her very fine needlework...

-Exactly.

0:38:100:38:13

..academic studies.

0:38:130:38:14

The interior of the shade is green, so it's a very nice light.

0:38:140:38:19

-You remember those peaked caps we wore at school?

-Absolutely.

0:38:190:38:23

-They had green underneath, to stop us fainting.

-Absolutely.

0:38:230:38:26

I also thought, you know,

0:38:260:38:28

beech is a wood very much in the shoemaker's lexicon, isn't?

0:38:280:38:33

Absolutely. Lathes are made of it.

0:38:330:38:35

I believe the bark is used traditionally in tanning.

0:38:350:38:38

What do you think would be a fair price? If you had to go

0:38:380:38:41

to your local retailer here,

0:38:410:38:43

how much do you think he'd sting you for?

0:38:430:38:45

-I was thinking, maybe 60 to 70?

-Oh!

0:38:450:38:48

Straight...I think they used to call those low blows!

0:38:480:38:52

I need to get my waistband up a bit!

0:38:520:38:57

Oh! £60-£70

0:38:580:39:00

just isn't going to be enough to swing today's competition.

0:39:000:39:04

James will need to do a lot better than that.

0:39:040:39:06

We'll see how he gets on...later.

0:39:060:39:09

David, too, has one last item to sell,

0:39:090:39:12

his carved Indian goddess head.

0:39:120:39:14

His friend, Claire, is looking for props for her styling business

0:39:140:39:17

and David thinks this could really appeal.

0:39:170:39:19

Claire, what do you think about that?

0:39:190:39:22

-I'm intrigued!

-Where d'you think it's from?

0:39:220:39:25

-Is it telling you anything?

-Do you know what I'd do first?

0:39:250:39:28

I don't actually analyse it like that.

0:39:280:39:30

It's like, an instinctive thing - do you like it?

0:39:300:39:34

What's the appeal? And all the rest of it.

0:39:340:39:37

For me, that's a really on-the-nail prop

0:39:370:39:40

for next season's collections. We're talking winter, not quite summer,

0:39:400:39:44

but the next winters that are coming on, you know,

0:39:440:39:47

there's a look, in festivals and celebrations.

0:39:470:39:51

-Ah, there you go.

-This has got a key place for that.

0:39:510:39:56

That could be, even, THE prop I've been looking for.

0:39:560:39:59

Claire, this is all absolute music to my ears,

0:39:590:40:02

so let me just ask you some very basic questions.

0:40:020:40:05

-First of all, do you like this?

-No, not particularly.

-Oh.

0:40:050:40:12

-Right. Could you use it?

-Yes.

0:40:120:40:15

Ah, that's better!

0:40:150:40:17

Would you like to buy it?

0:40:170:40:20

-Price, I think I would put it down to, but yes.

-20 quid.

0:40:200:40:24

-Is that all?

-Exactly.

-Absolutely brilliant. There's no deal on that. That's good!

0:40:240:40:30

-I'm really chuffed. Actually, are you sure that's 20?

-Yeah, done deal.

0:40:300:40:34

-Yeah, pleased.

-Always lovely to see you. You're gorgeous!

0:40:340:40:37

-Good to see you.

-Thank you very much.

0:40:370:40:39

£19 profit for the maestro at selling,

0:40:390:40:42

but will it be enough to take the crown? It's time to find out.

0:40:420:40:46

Our trusty troupers have fiercely fought their way

0:40:460:40:49

through this tough task.

0:40:490:40:53

They both started with £250 of their own money.

0:40:530:40:56

Devilish David Harper spent £196 on six purchases.

0:40:560:41:02

James Bingo Braxton bought eight items, but spent

0:41:020:41:05

just £99 including restoration.

0:41:050:41:08

Now, it's all about the profit.

0:41:080:41:10

All the money that David and James have made

0:41:100:41:13

from today's challenge will be going to a charity of their choice.

0:41:130:41:16

So, without further ado,

0:41:160:41:18

let's find out who is today's Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is champion.

0:41:180:41:23

James, you've got a spring in your step, you have! How are you?

0:41:230:41:27

-Very well, David, how are you?

-Wonderful!

0:41:270:41:29

-You're feeling confident, I know you are!

-I've done all right, I think.

0:41:290:41:34

That dreadful pig of yours, I don't know why...

0:41:340:41:36

-Take those words back, young man!

-I can't stop thinking about it!

0:41:360:41:40

I sold them to very nice friends, near neighbours,

0:41:400:41:42

they're pig farmers and they're going to paint it

0:41:420:41:45

and give it a little sign, and welcome customers!

0:41:450:41:49

Whether it'll work for them, I don't know.

0:41:490:41:51

-It may force customers away in droves!

-But you found him a home! Well done to you!

0:41:510:41:56

-How are you feeling?

-Horribly nervous.

-Really?

-Genuinely, yeah, horribly nervous.

-I think I'm over-egging mine!

0:41:580:42:02

-D'you think so? Shall we do it?

-Yes.

-Three, two, one...

0:42:020:42:07

-Whoa! I've just pipped you!

-Just pipped me!

0:42:070:42:10

-Yes! Yes!

-Very close!

0:42:100:42:14

Very good going. I think it's lunch on me, then? Maybe a cup of tea?

0:42:140:42:18

-You owe me a cup of tea for that. Lead on!

-Well done. Good show!

0:42:180:42:23

It was a close one, but the crown goes to Devilish David.

0:42:230:42:27

Bingo Braxton needed a great price for his beech lamp standard,

0:42:270:42:31

so how did he get on?

0:42:310:42:33

How about around 100?

0:42:330:42:36

I mean, 80 sounds better to me, to be honest with you, chief.

0:42:360:42:40

-80, 80, 80 sounds very fair.

-All right, then.

0:42:400:42:45

After restoration costs, Bingo was left with a profit of £43,

0:42:450:42:50

not quite enough, this time round, old boy.

0:42:500:42:53

I managed to buy some lovely little items, steady, steady,

0:42:530:42:57

steady profit, but they just weren't enough.

0:42:570:43:00

David pipped me.

0:43:000:43:02

I just pipped James at the post and I had a fabulous time doing it,

0:43:020:43:07

in the Tees, freezing myself half to death, but one of those moments

0:43:070:43:11

where you don't like doing it at the time, but on reflection,

0:43:110:43:14

actually, it was fabulous!

0:43:140:43:16

David can't celebrate for long, because tomorrow our duelling dealers

0:43:160:43:20

will cross swords at an auction in Gloucestershire.

0:43:200:43:23

Delicious!
