This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,

0:00:020:00:03

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

0:00:030:00:07

against each other in an all-out battle for profit...

0:00:070:00:10

Hey-hey!

0:00:100:00:12

..and gives you the insider's view of the trade.

0:00:120:00:15

I'm on the case.

0:00:150:00:17

Each week, one pair of duelling dealers

0:00:190:00:21

will face a different daily challenge...

0:00:210:00:23

I'm a cheeky chancer. Lovely!

0:00:240:00:26

..putting their reputations on the line

0:00:260:00:29

and giving you top tips and savvy secrets

0:00:290:00:31

on how to make the most money from buying and selling.

0:00:310:00:34

Let's go and spend some money!

0:00:360:00:37

Get in there!

0:00:370:00:39

Today, it's do or die,

0:00:400:00:41

as two rivals of auctioneering aristocracy,

0:00:410:00:44

Christina Trevanion and Philip Serrell,

0:00:440:00:47

pit their mighty wits against each other.

0:00:470:00:49

Coming up... Will Phil's dreams come true?

0:00:510:00:53

Do you know, it has, in all seriousness,

0:00:530:00:55

been a lifelong ambition of mine to come here

0:00:550:00:57

and buy £1,000-worth of hundreds and thousands.

0:00:570:01:00

Christina shows you how to spot a potential diamond in the rough...

0:01:020:01:06

I think he's rather lovely.

0:01:060:01:08

I think with a little bit of a scrub,

0:01:080:01:09

perhaps a new saddle, he could be quite lovely.

0:01:090:01:12

And when it comes to selling, Phil has an out-of-body experience.

0:01:120:01:17

I think this is what heaven looks like, isn't it?

0:01:170:01:20

This is Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:01:200:01:23

Are you sitting comfortably?

0:01:360:01:38

Then I'll begin.

0:01:380:01:39

Once upon a time, in a faraway land,

0:01:390:01:41

two gallant knights of the antiques world

0:01:410:01:44

drew their swords and prepared to engage

0:01:440:01:46

in a battle for profit.

0:01:460:01:48

First up, in his jaunty scarf, it's...

0:01:480:01:50

On his home turf today

0:01:530:01:54

and with a fire in his belly,

0:01:540:01:56

he's aiming to defeat the enemy with his cunning knowledge.

0:01:560:01:59

You've got to know your onions in this business.

0:02:010:02:03

Next, with her flaxen hair, winning smile

0:02:030:02:05

and an awe-inspiring expertise in jewellery and silver, it's...

0:02:050:02:10

A princess who takes pleasure in treasure.

0:02:130:02:15

Really quite exciting, and I'm very much enjoying it.

0:02:150:02:18

Especially all the diamonds.

0:02:180:02:20

Today's clash takes place at the Malvern Flea and Collectables Fair

0:02:200:02:24

in Worcestershire, where, under stormy skies,

0:02:240:02:27

a glittering array of hidden wealth

0:02:270:02:29

is just waiting to be discovered.

0:02:290:02:31

This dashing duke and duchess of dealing

0:02:330:02:36

each have £750 of their own money to spend

0:02:360:02:39

and all the profits will go to their chosen charities.

0:02:390:02:43

But which of these excellent auctioneers will reign supreme?

0:02:440:02:48

Christina Trevanion and Phil Serrell,

0:02:480:02:51

it's time to Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.

0:02:510:02:54

-Brrr!

-It's cold!

0:02:560:02:58

Turned out nice again, hasn't it(?)

0:02:580:03:00

-Blimey!

-Brrr!

0:03:000:03:01

Well, here we are in "sunny" Malvern!

0:03:010:03:04

Lord above!

0:03:040:03:06

-Just round the corner from yours.

-I'm not sure if that's an advantage or a disadvantage.

0:03:060:03:10

-We've got £750, haven't we?

-We have.

-You got a plan?

0:03:100:03:13

Spend it all.

0:03:130:03:14

-Really?

-Yeah. Why not? Let's go for it.

0:03:140:03:17

-What about yours?

-Well, I think, when you buy,

0:03:170:03:20

you've got to think of who you're going to sell it to, so I'll try and be focused. It'll never work!

0:03:200:03:24

-No!

-Not really going to work...

0:03:240:03:26

For today's thrilling encounter, let's go deep into the forest of antiques,

0:03:270:03:32

where a Fox and a Magpie are locked in combat

0:03:320:03:36

over who will end the day triumphant.

0:03:360:03:39

So I told Phil I would spend my entire £750 budget today,

0:03:390:03:43

which I will really work hard to do.

0:03:430:03:44

So I think what we'll do is buy a couple of low-value items,

0:03:440:03:48

maybe a few bits and bobs,

0:03:480:03:50

and save our pennies for the big spend, which will be on jewellery,

0:03:500:03:53

specifically things that can appeal to quite a broad market.

0:03:530:03:56

But in my experience, jewellery tends to be quite expensive,

0:03:560:03:59

so we'll save our pennies until then.

0:03:590:04:00

So, Christina's clear on her strategy,

0:04:020:04:05

but has she got our Phil worried?

0:04:050:04:08

I've got to be really on my mettle today,

0:04:090:04:11

because this, I think, is Christina's emporium,

0:04:110:04:14

and I think she's really got her buying hat on.

0:04:140:04:17

So look out, Mr Serrell.

0:04:170:04:19

Look out indeed, as our fiery lady of the flea market

0:04:190:04:23

attempts to canter into the lead

0:04:230:04:25

as she spies her first potential buy -

0:04:250:04:27

a 1930s rocking horse.

0:04:270:04:29

We're on Phil's turf today,

0:04:290:04:31

and he's going to know the world and his wife, so he's going to be going pretty quickly.

0:04:310:04:35

On the way in, I spotted this little fellow over here,

0:04:350:04:37

who I think could be a bit of a restoration project,

0:04:370:04:40

but...

0:04:400:04:42

I think he's rather lovely. It might just be the mummy in me,

0:04:420:04:44

but I think, with a little bit of a scrub, perhaps a new saddle,

0:04:440:04:48

he could be quite lovely.

0:04:480:04:49

I really like him. Shall we find out much he wants for him?

0:04:490:04:52

-Hello! Can you tell me how much you want for your...?

-It's £45.

0:04:520:04:56

Is that your best price?

0:04:560:04:58

Er...I could do it for £40, if you really want it.

0:04:580:05:01

Cos he needs quite a lot of work doing, and now he's got wet.

0:05:020:05:05

-Yeah, makes it worth more.

-Does it?!

0:05:050:05:07

Original Malvern rain?

0:05:070:05:08

How are you for £35?

0:05:080:05:10

-Er...yeah, that's OK.

-Yeah?

-Yeah.

-£35.

0:05:100:05:13

Perfect! Thank you very much. I'm very happy with him.

0:05:130:05:16

Brilliant. I'm thrilled to bits with that. I'm now the proud owner of a rocking horse.

0:05:190:05:23

With a bit of TLC, new mane, new saddle maybe,

0:05:230:05:26

and a bit of a paint job, he could turn from being very unloved and unwanted

0:05:260:05:30

to being a beautiful stallion.

0:05:300:05:32

So, Christina has thrown down the gauntlet,

0:05:340:05:37

and Phil is picking it up.

0:05:370:05:39

He's embracing his inner decorator

0:05:390:05:41

with plans for a 19th-century spirit barrel.

0:05:410:05:44

How much is your barrel, please?

0:05:440:05:46

-90 quid for that.

-Thank you.

0:05:460:05:48

This is a Doulton Lambeth spirit barrel.

0:05:480:05:51

I just think it's lovely. This would have originally stood behind the bar,

0:05:510:05:55

probably up high on a shelf, in a pub.

0:05:550:05:57

You'd have had one for gin, one for brandy, one for rum,

0:05:570:06:00

one for whisky.

0:06:000:06:01

There would have been a brass tap just here.

0:06:010:06:03

I just think that's a really, really good thing.

0:06:030:06:07

What would you do with it? Well...

0:06:070:06:09

It would make a great table lamp, if you got a lamp fitted in there.

0:06:100:06:13

You see, this is the problem with this business, because I'm now

0:06:130:06:16

sort of talking myself into this thing.

0:06:160:06:19

That's a real Serrell problem,

0:06:190:06:21

because...

0:06:210:06:22

..this has ceased to become a spirit barrel any more.

0:06:230:06:26

Is £90 the best on it?

0:06:260:06:27

70 quid, then.

0:06:270:06:29

You've had a result.

0:06:290:06:30

Bet you always do!

0:06:300:06:32

Hark at this!

0:06:320:06:34

Go on then - let's have a go.

0:06:340:06:36

I don't know what I'm going to... This is lunacy!

0:06:360:06:39

But I think it's a bit of good fun, isn't it?

0:06:390:06:41

Yes, Phil's hit the ground running.

0:06:410:06:43

He may be buying with his heart, but his cunning selling strategy

0:06:430:06:47

is firmly in place...for now.

0:06:470:06:50

All fired up, he quickly spots his next prey -

0:06:500:06:53

a large cat - and is gearing up for a ferocious joust.

0:06:530:06:57

-I think it would be more fibreglass.

-How much is it?

-I've got £120 on it.

0:06:580:07:02

That wasn't an answer to the question, was it?

0:07:020:07:04

It's a starting point. You can make me an offer.

0:07:080:07:11

I need to buy it for somewhere between 60 and 80 quid.

0:07:110:07:14

That's what I need to try and buy it for.

0:07:140:07:16

Being utterly truthful with you.

0:07:160:07:18

I'm going to try and sell it

0:07:180:07:19

to somebody I think who's got a car.

0:07:190:07:22

What the best you can do on him, seriously?

0:07:220:07:24

£90.

0:07:240:07:25

That ain't between 60 and 80, is it?

0:07:250:07:27

I was never very good at maths at school, but I always thought

0:07:270:07:30

60, 80, and then 90's over there. It doesn't fit in that bit, does it?

0:07:300:07:34

It doesn't. But in Wales, it does!

0:07:340:07:36

Now, look...you beat us at rugby...

0:07:380:07:40

so it should be 50 quid really, shouldn't it?

0:07:400:07:42

-Should be 110, then.

-Get out of here!

0:07:420:07:46

-Would 60 quid buy it?

-I'll go to your top end - 80 quid.

0:07:460:07:48

That's 40 quid off.

0:07:500:07:52

I think you've been very, very fair.

0:07:520:07:53

And I'm going to buy it. The thing I love about things like this

0:07:530:07:56

is...what's it worth? Well, I haven't got the first idea,

0:07:560:08:00

and I suspect you haven't got the first idea,

0:08:000:08:02

and I'm hoping the person I sell it to hasn't got the first idea either!

0:08:020:08:06

It's a really nice thing.

0:08:060:08:08

The thing is, if you buy a high-quality brand,

0:08:080:08:12

you should always find a buyer for it.

0:08:120:08:14

I don't actually know who I'm going to sell that to yet,

0:08:140:08:17

but I'm sure someone out there is just dying to have that on their wall.

0:08:170:08:20

Yes, but who?

0:08:210:08:23

Has Phil's pledge of buying to order disappeared with purchase number two?

0:08:230:08:27

Our jewellery queen's promise to spend it all

0:08:290:08:31

is looking likely, as she's in her element amongst the market's twinkling wares.

0:08:310:08:35

I sold one like that not long ago.

0:08:350:08:38

I'm like a child in a sweetie shop. There's just so much to see.

0:08:380:08:41

Yes, Mr Serrell wants to eat his sweets, not just look at them.

0:08:410:08:46

Do you know, it has, in all seriousness,

0:08:460:08:49

been a lifelong ambition of mine to come here

0:08:490:08:52

and buy £1,000-worth of hundreds and thousands.

0:08:520:08:54

Hmm. But that's not what you're here for, Phil.

0:08:540:08:57

Like a moth to a flame, Christina is drawn to all that glitters

0:08:570:09:01

and she's flown into the lead with her second deal

0:09:010:09:03

of not one but two items.

0:09:030:09:06

I've just bought these two little bits of silver, which I'm really, really pleased with.

0:09:090:09:13

Coming from the Cheshire area,

0:09:130:09:15

this especially I'm pleased with.

0:09:150:09:17

It's a lovely little silver bangle

0:09:170:09:19

with engine-turned decoration here.

0:09:190:09:21

But the most important thing for me is, if we look inside...

0:09:210:09:24

we've got the maker's mark - Charles Horner, who is incredibly collectable

0:09:240:09:27

and also a really nice, clear Chester hallmark for 1943.

0:09:270:09:32

So we've got really nice Art Deco decoration

0:09:320:09:35

and a Chester hallmark and a Chester maker,

0:09:350:09:38

so we'll definitely find a buyer for that one.

0:09:380:09:41

Followed by...which I think is a bit of a novelty...

0:09:420:09:44

Not particularly old, but this ring box here has got a hallmark on it

0:09:440:09:47

of Edinburgh 1998.

0:09:470:09:50

If we look inside... It is quite a modern box,

0:09:500:09:53

but I just think, if you had a special engagement ring

0:09:530:09:56

or a ring you'd inherited,

0:09:560:09:57

to have your initials engraved on the top there...

0:09:570:10:00

Silver-mounted ring box. I think it's lovely.

0:10:000:10:02

Really nice little touch, and just something a bit different.

0:10:020:10:05

I've got a jeweller friend in mind

0:10:050:10:07

who I think will, well, hopefully, agree with me

0:10:070:10:09

and hopefully think that's worth more than the £10 I've just paid.

0:10:090:10:12

This is one crackerjack contest.

0:10:140:10:15

Fantastic Mr Fox is sneaking back into contention

0:10:150:10:19

as his appetite for the unusual

0:10:190:10:22

leads him to some early 19th-century crimping irons.

0:10:220:10:25

-How much is that?

-£120.

0:10:250:10:26

Oh, I think that's got me at the minute. I love that.

0:10:260:10:30

So that...

0:10:300:10:31

I mean, this really would have been Downton Abbey, wouldn't it?

0:10:330:10:36

-Oh, yeah, absolutely.

-And that would have fitted in there,

0:10:360:10:39

and then you would put starch in there,

0:10:390:10:41

-then you would put your ruffs through?

-Yeah, I think so.

0:10:410:10:44

What's the best on that?

0:10:440:10:46

£110. I had to buy a whole box full of tat at a sale just to get that.

0:10:460:10:50

You know what these auctioneers are like! Terrible people.

0:10:500:10:52

£100.

0:10:520:10:54

Go on, then.

0:10:550:10:56

I'm going to have that.

0:10:560:10:57

Check that for me, matey.

0:10:570:10:59

Thank you ever so much. I'm pleased with that.

0:10:590:11:01

You're a star. Thanks, matey.

0:11:010:11:03

-I'll see you in a bit.

-Thank you.

0:11:030:11:05

I am really pleased with that, which proves that I don't get out much.

0:11:050:11:09

Well, Mr Fox, your foe Christina

0:11:090:11:12

HAS been getting out and about, and is in her element.

0:11:120:11:15

I am absolutely loving the selection here today.

0:11:150:11:18

It's just been brilliant. Lots of jewellery, lots of silver - perfect for me.

0:11:180:11:22

I wonder what that Mr Serrell has been up to?

0:11:220:11:25

Well, he's been a bit sidetracked by his adoring public.

0:11:250:11:29

So, as we reach the halfway mark of this fearsome contest,

0:11:290:11:33

let's see who's living the dream

0:11:330:11:35

and whose hopes are being dashed.

0:11:350:11:37

Christina and Phil each started the day with £750 of their own money.

0:11:390:11:44

Christina has bagged three deals so far, totalling £105,

0:11:440:11:49

leaving her £645 to spend.

0:11:490:11:53

Phil is hot on her heels,

0:11:530:11:56

also with three items,

0:11:560:11:59

totalling £250,

0:11:590:12:01

leaving £500 in his kitty.

0:12:010:12:04

So, it's all to play for, but even the fiercest fighters

0:12:060:12:10

need their food.

0:12:100:12:11

-Hello!

-I'm hoping this is the stairway to success.

0:12:110:12:14

-Oh. Well, I brought you some sustenance.

-You are a girl!

0:12:140:12:17

-You look like you need it.

-What an angel!

0:12:170:12:19

-How have you got on?

-Fine.

0:12:190:12:22

This is really good!

0:12:230:12:25

HE SPEAKS WITH HIS MOUTH FULL

0:12:250:12:28

Good, isn't it? It's a bit of a jaw-locker.

0:12:280:12:30

I'm getting £750-worth of chocolate brownie.

0:12:300:12:33

What have you bought?

0:12:330:12:35

Well, I've lived up to my name a bit, and I've got lots of silver and sparkly things.

0:12:350:12:39

-Really?

-Yeah. How have you got on?

0:12:390:12:41

Well, Serrell does wacky, and I've done it again.

0:12:410:12:44

-But I have to say...this is just the best brownie, isn't it? Where did you get these from?

-Just up there.

0:12:440:12:48

Be back in a minute!

0:12:480:12:50

Yes, don't be fooled by their jolly banter -

0:12:500:12:52

the sly Fox has given Christina food for thought.

0:12:520:12:55

So, Phil says he's fairly happy with what he bought.

0:12:550:12:58

He's certainly going for some alternative things, I think.

0:12:580:13:01

But it sounds like he's doing well, so let's go and see if we can find a couple more things to buy.

0:13:010:13:05

Christina seems calm and collected, but what of Phil?

0:13:070:13:10

I really need to try and focus and concentrate here,

0:13:120:13:14

cos the plan was to try and find things

0:13:140:13:17

with the eventual buyer in mind, and at the minute,

0:13:170:13:20

that has gone straight out of the window.

0:13:200:13:22

Oh, dear! Phil's plans have gone awry.

0:13:230:13:26

Whilst the wily one rethinks his approach,

0:13:260:13:29

our princess of precious things is one step ahead.

0:13:290:13:32

She has broadened her horizons and has braved the elements

0:13:320:13:35

to pounce on a larger-than-usual prey.

0:13:350:13:38

Is this a pony barrow or just a hand barrow?

0:13:380:13:41

Just a hand barrow. It's a flower barrow,

0:13:410:13:43

so it was used at flower markets.

0:13:430:13:45

That's lovely, isn't it? Where did it come from?

0:13:450:13:48

-Oh, locally.

-Did it?

0:13:480:13:50

And is it quite old? It looks Victorian.

0:13:500:13:52

-Late Victorian?

-Yeah.

0:13:540:13:56

It's really nice.

0:13:560:13:57

And what would your best price be?

0:13:570:14:00

I could do it for £80.

0:14:000:14:01

Any flexibility on that at all?

0:14:030:14:04

That's the best price - £80?

0:14:040:14:07

OK. Cool.

0:14:070:14:08

I'll have a little look around. Thank you.

0:14:080:14:11

Christina wants to be sure, so steps away to think,

0:14:110:14:13

but this lady knows what she wants, and in no time,

0:14:130:14:16

she's made up her mind.

0:14:160:14:18

I really like this hand barrow, and I'm fairly sure I can find a buyer for it.

0:14:180:14:22

It's a really nice, traditional market ware item.

0:14:220:14:24

And I've already had a chat with her, so let's see if there's any movement in that price.

0:14:240:14:28

I really like this,

0:14:280:14:30

but I just wondered whether there was any more movement in the price?

0:14:300:14:34

I could go to £75.

0:14:340:14:36

-£75?

-Is the very lowest.

0:14:360:14:38

OK. All right. £75?

0:14:380:14:40

You couldn't do £70?

0:14:400:14:42

No!

0:14:430:14:44

OK. No, I do like it. I really like it,

0:14:440:14:47

so £75, I think we've got a deal!

0:14:470:14:49

All right. Brilliant. I love it. I don't know how I'm going to get it home.

0:14:490:14:53

It's not going to fit in the car.

0:14:530:14:55

Yes, our Christina is blithe as a barrow boy

0:14:550:14:58

with that purchase, but the bling is still calling out to her.

0:14:580:15:02

I am a very fair-weather buyer. I've bought two things outside now,

0:15:020:15:05

and I think that's plenty of being in the great outdoors.

0:15:050:15:08

So I'm going to go back inside.

0:15:080:15:09

Lucky Mr Serrell is on his home turf,

0:15:120:15:14

and with his wealth of local contacts, is hoping

0:15:140:15:17

a friendly face might have a bargain to offer.

0:15:170:15:19

Matt, how are you?

0:15:190:15:21

Very well, Philip, very well.

0:15:210:15:22

-Are you taking lots of money?

-It's been OK.

0:15:220:15:25

Now, Matt is a regular customer at all of my auctions.

0:15:250:15:27

Have you got any Worcester-related or Malvern or...?

0:15:270:15:30

There's a map here of the Malverns,

0:15:300:15:31

with plenty of advertising around it.

0:15:310:15:33

-Can we have a look at it?

-Of course.

0:15:330:15:35

Oh! I've got to buy this.

0:15:370:15:40

-Why's that?

-Because that's where I started work.

-Fantastic.

0:15:420:15:46

-Perfect.

-Phone number 160... Isn't that just...?

0:15:470:15:49

Oh, goodness me!

0:15:490:15:51

No, I don't want this at all, Matt(!) How much is it?

0:15:510:15:55

-It's marked at £38.

-What's the best?

0:15:550:15:57

-£32 to you.

-Good man.

0:15:570:15:59

I'll take that off you, Matt, because I love that.

0:15:590:16:01

What I think I might do with this is get it framed up

0:16:010:16:03

and sell it... See if I can sell it to someone in Malvern.

0:16:030:16:07

I love that.

0:16:070:16:09

Excellent stuff. So...did you say £30 for cash?

0:16:090:16:12

I said £32. I need the extra £2, I'm afraid.

0:16:120:16:14

A small profit margin.

0:16:140:16:16

Well, there you are, Matt. I'm really pleased with that.

0:16:160:16:18

There's £40. Thank you very much indeed.

0:16:200:16:23

I'm so excited by that. Isn't that bizarre? I found a map that's got an advertising logo on it

0:16:260:16:31

for where I started work,

0:16:310:16:33

and I won't tell you how long ago it was,

0:16:330:16:35

but it wasn't when this was new.

0:16:350:16:36

And with that heroic fourth buy,

0:16:380:16:40

Phil has put himself firmly back on the map.

0:16:400:16:42

Now the Fox is flying, and with the scent of triumph in his nostrils,

0:16:420:16:46

he's tempted by a collection of copper pots and pans.

0:16:460:16:49

How are you, all right?

0:16:510:16:53

How old are those?

0:16:530:16:54

I think they're probably '20s, don't you?

0:16:540:16:58

-1920s.

-Yeah.

0:16:580:16:59

-They're cool things, aren't they?

-They're lovely.

0:16:590:17:01

One of the ways you can tell - correct me if I'm wrong -

0:17:010:17:04

an early piece of copper

0:17:040:17:05

is the rivet has got a zigzag, hasn't it?

0:17:050:17:08

-In the early ones, they'd be riveted on the base.

-Yeah.

0:17:080:17:11

-These are not.

-But the later ones,

0:17:110:17:13

-they're a straight seam, aren't they?

-Yes.

0:17:130:17:16

-Whereas 18th-century ones would be zigzag?

-They'd be zigzag.

0:17:160:17:19

-So you think these are perhaps 1920s?

-Yes.

0:17:190:17:21

-And what's the best you could do?

-£120.

0:17:210:17:24

-That's the absolute finito?

-It is, yes.

0:17:240:17:26

Can I ask you to do me a favour?

0:17:260:17:28

-Could you just hold them for me for about ten minutes?

-Yes.

0:17:280:17:31

I'm going to have a scout round.

0:17:310:17:33

And with that, Phil's off for one final madcap dash

0:17:330:17:37

to see if any other delights catch his eye.

0:17:370:17:39

Be quick, be quick, because this is a real rush time, this is.

0:17:420:17:45

Ooh, I'm sorry!

0:17:450:17:46

That concludes the Philip Serrell whistle-stop tour

0:17:550:17:57

to Malvern Flea and Antiques Fair,

0:17:570:17:59

and I've got about 30 seconds left to get my saucepans. Bye-bye!

0:17:590:18:02

So, with the £120 purchase, Phil is done.

0:18:030:18:07

Six...eight...10...

0:18:070:18:10

12.

0:18:100:18:11

Just check that's right.

0:18:110:18:13

Thank you very much.

0:18:130:18:15

But our fair lady is still trapping treasure,

0:18:160:18:19

and adds two final items to her trove.

0:18:190:18:22

I've just bought these two pieces of jewellery,

0:18:230:18:25

which I'm really, really pleased with.

0:18:250:18:27

The first is a little half-hoop diamond-set eternity ring.

0:18:270:18:30

Called half-hoop because the diamonds are only set halfway round,

0:18:300:18:34

which makes it an awful lot easier to resize.

0:18:340:18:36

This particular one is set with a quarter of a carat of diamonds,

0:18:360:18:39

about 0.25 carats of diamonds,

0:18:390:18:40

and it's set in 18-carat yellow gold.

0:18:400:18:43

I paid £100 for it, which can't be bad.

0:18:430:18:46

Can't be bad at all.

0:18:460:18:48

And the second thing I bought was this rather beautiful

0:18:480:18:51

amethyst and opal bracelet,

0:18:510:18:53

which is set in nine-carat,

0:18:530:18:56

and I think is relatively modern,

0:18:560:18:58

but I love the combination of the really rich colour purple amethysts

0:18:580:19:02

and the play of light and play of colour on the opals there.

0:19:020:19:05

Opals, unfortunately, do have a bit of a bad reputation.

0:19:050:19:08

They're considered as being quite unlucky.

0:19:080:19:11

Because the majority of opals are made up so much of water,

0:19:110:19:14

they tended to dehydrate and shrink

0:19:140:19:17

and therefore fall out of their settings.

0:19:170:19:19

So people became very suspicious about them.

0:19:190:19:21

They thought they were very unlucky.

0:19:210:19:23

So I'm very pleased that I paid £250 for that

0:19:230:19:25

little collet-set amethyst and opal bracelet.

0:19:250:19:28

And I love it. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

0:19:280:19:30

So, as the market draws to a close

0:19:300:19:33

and the sun sinks behind the Malvern Hills,

0:19:330:19:36

it's time to find out how our rummaging rampagers have done.

0:19:360:19:40

Christina and Phil each started the day with £750 of their own money.

0:19:420:19:47

Courageous Christina had a glittering day,

0:19:470:19:50

purchasing six items and splashing out £530.

0:19:500:19:54

Fearless Phil searched far and wide,

0:19:540:19:57

but only managed five items,

0:19:570:19:59

spending £402.

0:19:590:20:02

So it's time for our weary antiques warriors

0:20:020:20:05

to call a temporary truce and size up each other's swag.

0:20:050:20:09

-How did you find that?

-I loved it.

0:20:090:20:10

-Really?

-I've had a great day.

0:20:100:20:12

Just every other stall was a glass cabinet with jewellery

0:20:120:20:17

-and beautiful things in. Loved it.

-Girly bling.

0:20:170:20:20

-Absolutely.

-Girly bling, girly bling.

-How about you?

0:20:200:20:23

Yeah, it was an interesting time. I sort of...

0:20:230:20:25

You know I said I was going to buy things specifically

0:20:250:20:29

-with the end buyer in mind?

-Yeah.

0:20:290:20:31

P-ching!

0:20:310:20:32

Straight out of the window!

0:20:320:20:34

Which is your best buy?

0:20:340:20:36

I think... I like my horse very much.

0:20:360:20:39

The bangle.

0:20:390:20:41

It's a Chester hallmark, so it's nice and close to home

0:20:410:20:44

and I think it's lovely. Very simple, very stylish.

0:20:440:20:47

-That's your thing, isn't it?

-Completely. How have you got on today?

0:20:470:20:50

I love my map of the Malverns,

0:20:500:20:52

not because there's a huge profit in it, but simply because

0:20:520:20:55

the firm that I first started working for

0:20:550:20:57

advertise on there.

0:20:570:20:59

Is it 19th century...?

0:20:590:21:01

Oh, you're so sweet(!)

0:21:010:21:03

Now, our gallant knights' valiant fight

0:21:070:21:09

on the battlefield of buying may be over,

0:21:090:21:11

but their crusade is only at the halfway point.

0:21:110:21:14

Both these eminent experts

0:21:140:21:16

must now turn their buys into cold, hard profit.

0:21:160:21:20

So brace yourselves, as our duelling dealers

0:21:200:21:23

retire to their own stomping grounds

0:21:230:21:25

to draw up plans for the final battle.

0:21:250:21:28

They'll need to call on every bit of expertise and selling skill

0:21:280:21:32

in their armoury,

0:21:320:21:34

along with a touch of luck,

0:21:340:21:35

if they're to vanquish their opponent.

0:21:350:21:37

Back in his Worcestershire fox-hole,

0:21:370:21:40

Phil takes stock, and is struck by a sudden amount of uncertainty

0:21:400:21:43

over his hoard.

0:21:430:21:44

I look at this stuff now,

0:21:440:21:46

and I think some of it might just be a bit old-fogeyish,

0:21:460:21:49

but... Well, don't please answer that.

0:21:490:21:51

My gin barrel - I think that's quite a cool thing

0:21:510:21:54

and I love the fact that it's got "Gin" on the front.

0:21:540:21:56

The saucepans at £120... I don't really see how I can fail with those.

0:21:560:22:00

I hope there's a tidy profit in those.

0:22:000:22:02

And I just love that crimping iron.

0:22:020:22:04

I think I bought that with my heart and not my head,

0:22:040:22:06

but there might be a small profit there.

0:22:060:22:08

The two stars buys for me... Fancy finding a map

0:22:080:22:10

with my old firm in it. Hopefully,

0:22:100:22:12

there might be a connection there when I come to sell it.

0:22:120:22:15

And this car motif... There's got to be people out there

0:22:150:22:19

with a connection to this who will pay good money for it.

0:22:190:22:22

So Phil may be unsure about some of his bounty,

0:22:220:22:25

but up in her Shropshire bolthole,

0:22:250:22:28

Christina doesn't doubt any of her spoils.

0:22:280:22:30

Of all the things I bought at the antiques fair,

0:22:320:22:34

really, the cart for me was my favourite.

0:22:340:22:37

I'm desperate to find a buyer to take it back to a marketplace

0:22:370:22:40

so it can be in a busy, bustling market environment.

0:22:400:22:44

I also bought some beautiful pieces of jewellery,

0:22:440:22:47

indulging my love of anything sparkly.

0:22:470:22:50

So, starting with the opal and amethyst bracelet over here...

0:22:500:22:53

I was really, really pleased with it.

0:22:530:22:55

It is a modern piece of jewellery.

0:22:550:22:57

Then we've got the Charles Horner bracelet,

0:22:570:22:59

with the nice Chester hallmark.

0:22:590:23:01

I'm hoping the combination of these two factors

0:23:010:23:04

will make a nice tidy profit on that one.

0:23:040:23:06

Then the little diamond-set half eternity ring here,

0:23:060:23:09

which... I think every girl deserves an eternity ring

0:23:090:23:12

at some point in their lives, don't they?

0:23:120:23:14

Then the little silver-mounted ring box over here.

0:23:140:23:17

Of course, we're missing the rocking horse, which my father-in-law

0:23:170:23:19

is very, very kindly just giving a little bit of a tidy and a spruce-up to.

0:23:190:23:24

So, all in all, a good day.

0:23:240:23:27

Christina's hoping that her little bit of bling

0:23:270:23:29

will sparkle all the way to the bank.

0:23:290:23:31

So now it's time for both our masters of the antiques realm

0:23:310:23:36

to don their armour, mount their steeds

0:23:360:23:38

and strike out in search of profit.

0:23:380:23:40

But remember - no deal is truly sealed until that final handshake.

0:23:400:23:45

First up, Christina checks in on her very handy father-in-law, Chas,

0:23:460:23:50

who's tightened a few screws and given the horse a quick once-over.

0:23:500:23:55

How's it going?

0:23:550:23:57

-There was a bit of a problem with this cross-piece here.

-Right.

0:23:570:24:00

That was quite wobbly, I seem to remember.

0:24:000:24:03

I've just made it very secure, because we don't want any little ones

0:24:030:24:07

-falling off it or anything like that.

-Exactly.

0:24:070:24:10

I think it's important that we didn't do too much to it,

0:24:100:24:12

because it's... I've had a chat to a specialist about it

0:24:120:24:15

and it's actually earlier than I thought it was - it's a 1930s one.

0:24:150:24:18

-When I sent him photographs, he seemed to think this was the original paintwork.

-Oh, right.

0:24:180:24:23

He's no Red Rum, but he'll be a good Dobbin for someone.

0:24:230:24:26

-Well, that's what it's about, isn't it?

-Exactly. Thank you ever so much.

0:24:260:24:30

Christina's hoping her old nag will prove to be champion in the profit stakes.

0:24:300:24:35

Mr Serrell is hoping to bag his first sale

0:24:350:24:39

by taking a trip down memory lane.

0:24:390:24:42

He bought the local Malvern map after discovering inside it

0:24:420:24:45

an ad for the very first auction house he worked for.

0:24:450:24:48

Back in those days, Phil was a young cub about town.

0:24:480:24:52

Collars were big, trousers were flared

0:24:520:24:56

and scarves were all the rage.

0:24:560:24:57

Phil's got in touch with his first boss, who ran that company, Malcolm Hodges,

0:24:570:25:01

and has brought the £32 map to show him.

0:25:010:25:05

What really intrigues me is...

0:25:050:25:06

I bought this map down at the Three Counties Showground,

0:25:060:25:10

but it's how many of these people are still in existence.

0:25:100:25:13

Your old firm, which is JG Lear & Son,

0:25:130:25:15

and I think they were established in 1861, weren't they?

0:25:150:25:18

-1863.

-1863.

0:25:180:25:21

-So your memory's not very good, is it?

-No.

-Not much it isn't!

0:25:210:25:23

It says here "established over 70 years",

0:25:230:25:28

so this map is probably somewhere between 1935-ish

0:25:280:25:32

-and 1940, isn't it?

-That's about it.

0:25:320:25:35

-But it wouldn't have been done during the Second World War.

-No.

0:25:350:25:38

So it's probably 1936, 1937?

0:25:380:25:42

-That would be about it.

-Not even you were here then.

-No.

0:25:420:25:45

The quality of the paper tells you that as well.

0:25:450:25:48

Is it something you might be interested in buying?

0:25:480:25:50

Are you going to give me a hard time, Malcolm?

0:25:500:25:52

How much do you want for it?

0:25:520:25:54

-I think it's worth £100 to the right bloke.

-Pardon?

0:25:540:25:57

I tell you what I'll do...

0:25:590:26:00

I'll give you half.

0:26:000:26:02

Give it half.

0:26:020:26:03

-50 quid?

-Yes.

-Get out of here!

0:26:030:26:05

I'll drop it to 90 quid.

0:26:050:26:07

-Done?

-Done.

-You're a gentleman, Malcolm.

0:26:090:26:12

When can I pay - next year?

0:26:120:26:14

Easy credit terms for pensioners.

0:26:140:26:16

So Phil manages to reminisce his way to a £58 profit on the map.

0:26:180:26:23

-This was my first job, so for me that's a real little bit of a magic moment.

-Quite.

-Cheers, Malcolm.

0:26:230:26:28

Christina has no intention of letting this battle become a one-sided affair.

0:26:300:26:34

Behind that warm and friendly exterior lies a hardened warrior,

0:26:340:26:38

intent on victory.

0:26:380:26:40

She's rounded up three of her jewellery items,

0:26:400:26:43

which cost £360 in total

0:26:430:26:45

and taken them to show Nigel Woodroffe,

0:26:450:26:47

a jeweller contact in Shrewsbury.

0:26:470:26:50

You've got an interesting cross-section here, Christina.

0:26:500:26:53

"Interesting" - is that polite?!

0:26:530:26:55

It's a bit diverse, isn't it?

0:26:550:26:58

-Yeah. What shall we start with?

-I'm quite fond of the bracelet.

0:26:580:27:01

I just like the colour combination between the opal and the amethyst.

0:27:010:27:04

-Beautiful amethysts.

-Yes.

-They are beautiful amethysts.

0:27:040:27:06

-Nice dark colour.

-But...

-But...

0:27:060:27:09

as you well know, they're not real opals.

0:27:090:27:12

But very, very pretty.

0:27:120:27:13

-And is that the kind of thing you...?

-I think we could

0:27:130:27:17

find a customer for that.

0:27:170:27:19

What do you think of my little half eternity ring?

0:27:190:27:22

That's quite modern again.

0:27:220:27:23

Um...all little diamonds.

0:27:230:27:27

I think it is 18. It's 18-carat, so that's quite nice.

0:27:270:27:30

-They're not the best diamonds.

-Sorry!

0:27:320:27:34

-But I'm sure that'll be reflected in the price.

-Oh, I'm sure.

0:27:340:27:38

But even so, it's set well.

0:27:390:27:41

It's what we call a channel set. That's quite saleable at the moment.

0:27:410:27:45

Excellent. What do you think? I know it's an empty ring box,

0:27:450:27:48

which I know is a little bit random,

0:27:480:27:50

but I've not seen one with a silver...

0:27:500:27:53

Well, it's repro,

0:27:530:27:55

so it's a copy of an old Victorian box, I would think.

0:27:550:27:59

-OK.

-Nice little bit of silver.

0:27:590:28:01

Lovely hallmark on there.

0:28:010:28:03

And you could put a really nice engagement ring in there.

0:28:030:28:06

-Absolutely.

-And put somebody's initials on there.

0:28:060:28:08

And make it something really special.

0:28:080:28:10

So, pennies-wise,

0:28:100:28:12

I was hoping to get in the region of £350.

0:28:120:28:15

Hmm.

0:28:150:28:16

-It's a little bit top-heavy, I think.

-Do you think?

-Yeah.

0:28:160:28:19

What's your thoughts on that one?

0:28:190:28:21

I know they're synthetic, or created, opals, but...

0:28:210:28:24

it's a nice thing.

0:28:240:28:26

At the back of my mind, I'd have been thinking round about the £280 mark.

0:28:260:28:30

-Shall we split the difference at £300?

-A deal at £300?

0:28:300:28:34

-Would you be happy with that?

-Yeah,

0:28:340:28:36

I think there's a little bit of a margin in it for us at that.

0:28:360:28:38

That would be fantastic.

0:28:380:28:40

And then we've got the diamond eternity ring.

0:28:400:28:44

Well, I think about £150 - we could probably do a deal on something like that.

0:28:440:28:48

All right. I'd be happy with £150. That gives me £50.

0:28:480:28:51

That's great.

0:28:510:28:53

And this - I've not seen one of these before.

0:28:530:28:55

I think about £35 for that.

0:28:550:28:57

-£35?

-Yeah.

0:28:570:28:59

I couldn't tempt you a little bit more on that one?

0:28:590:29:03

Seeing as it's you, £40, then.

0:29:030:29:05

Oh, £40? That would be brilliant!

0:29:050:29:08

-We'll shake on that.

-Deal on that.

-Thank you very much.

-You're welcome.

0:29:080:29:11

Christina strikes a deadly blow,

0:29:110:29:13

selling half her stash and making a handsome £130 profit.

0:29:130:29:18

Proof that behind that beaming smile,

0:29:200:29:22

she's a ruthless negotiator.

0:29:220:29:24

Now, we all know that, unlike his rival,

0:29:270:29:30

battle-hardened Phil isn't quite so chirpy.

0:29:300:29:34

He may move at his own pace,

0:29:340:29:36

but don't be fooled - this fox is a determined one.

0:29:360:29:39

He's hoping to fill up his own profit pot

0:29:430:29:45

by parting with his £120 copper pans.

0:29:450:29:48

He's headed to Leominster to see dealer Ben

0:29:480:29:51

in the hope of cooking up a deal.

0:29:510:29:53

I'm guessing that they were around 1920, 1930.

0:29:550:29:58

-They could well be French. Certainly continental.

-Yeah.

0:30:020:30:05

They've got a nice continental-type stamp with the numbers on the side.

0:30:050:30:09

Yeah. If they were English, you'd sort of expect to see

0:30:090:30:12

two-pint, three-pint, whatever, wouldn't you?

0:30:120:30:15

Yeah. So there is sizing - each one's got one on.

0:30:150:30:18

How far off £200 for these can you come?

0:30:180:30:21

I'd want to go quite a bit under.

0:30:210:30:23

Could you see £180, £190?

0:30:230:30:26

More...

0:30:260:30:28

£150-ish.

0:30:280:30:30

How's the ish?

0:30:320:30:33

-It's quite a low ish.

-Is it?

0:30:330:30:35

-Yeah.

-Is £150-ish like £170?

0:30:350:30:39

Can you just knock another five...£165?

0:30:400:30:43

Yeah, I'll do that,

0:30:430:30:44

because I think you've been really, really fair to me.

0:30:440:30:47

And I think that you've also - this is the key thing about this...

0:30:470:30:51

I think you've got the market for selling these,

0:30:510:30:54

and I'm not sure that I possibly have,

0:30:540:30:56

so I'm going to shake you by the hand.

0:30:560:30:58

-Okey-dokey.

-Thank you.

0:30:580:31:00

Monsieur Serrell says au revoir

0:31:000:31:02

to his French copper pans

0:31:020:31:04

and bonjour to a £45 profit.

0:31:040:31:06

I think that's a good sale

0:31:060:31:09

for a lot that probably is not as saleable as it was 20 years ago.

0:31:090:31:13

Now, intent on selling the final part of her jewellery stash,

0:31:190:31:22

the Magpie Trevanion has swooped down

0:31:220:31:25

to Piccadilly's Burlington Arcade

0:31:250:31:27

to see silver dealer Daniel Bexfield.

0:31:270:31:29

She's hoping that the streets of London

0:31:290:31:31

really will be paved with gold

0:31:310:31:34

when it comes to parting with her silver bangle.

0:31:340:31:36

-Mr Bexfield.

-Christina, please call me Daniel.

0:31:380:31:40

-How are you?

-I'm very good.

0:31:400:31:42

Here you go. This is this silver Charles Horner bangle.

0:31:420:31:45

-Let's have a little look.

-What do you think?

0:31:450:31:47

Well, I've seen lots and lots of these over the years

0:31:470:31:49

and generally, they often get buckled and bent.

0:31:490:31:52

And Charles Horner - or the company, Charles Horner -

0:31:520:31:54

made a lot of these.

0:31:540:31:56

But I've got to say this is one of the nicer ones

0:31:560:31:58

-I've seen for a long time.

-Brilliant.

0:31:580:32:00

Because Charles Horner, for me,

0:32:000:32:02

when I think of Charles Horner,

0:32:020:32:03

I think of Art Nouveau hat pins set with quartz or amethyst.

0:32:030:32:06

Yes, he did a lot of Art Nouveau little pieces of jewellery -

0:32:060:32:10

brooches, hat pins, as you say,

0:32:100:32:12

little bits of enamelling. This is so very different from...

0:32:120:32:15

-Very different.

-..Charles Horner.

0:32:150:32:16

-But the good thing is, it's in good condition.

-Brilliant.

0:32:160:32:19

Well, in my mind, I was thinking around about the £85 mark.

0:32:190:32:23

-Perfect. Well, I was hoping £100.

-Were you?

0:32:230:32:25

Yeah. Because it's pretty and because I like it!

0:32:250:32:29

Yes, but it's not very old - 1943.

0:32:290:32:31

And there are quite a number of them about,

0:32:310:32:33

-but it is the fact that it's in excellent condition.

-OK. Many thanks.

0:32:330:32:37

Christina, wonderful. Thank you for coming to see me.

0:32:370:32:40

Bye-bye, bangle. I'll miss you.

0:32:400:32:41

Yes, it's another sparkling sale for Christina,

0:32:410:32:44

as she bags a £25 profit on the silver bangle.

0:32:440:32:48

Well, that can't be bad, can it?

0:32:480:32:51

Not a bad profit, and Daniel says that I've bought well,

0:32:510:32:53

so condition, condition, condition - it really is so important.

0:32:530:32:57

So, at the halfway point, let's see who's been making the diamond sales

0:32:580:33:03

and who's been stuck peddling the costume jewellery.

0:33:030:33:06

Christina has hit the ground running

0:33:060:33:09

and sold all of her jewellery,

0:33:090:33:10

notching up a profit of £155.

0:33:100:33:13

Phil has sold two items,

0:33:130:33:16

but is still in touching distance

0:33:160:33:18

with a profit of £103.

0:33:180:33:20

Christina is in a commanding position,

0:33:240:33:26

but the wily warrior of Worcester hasn't given up yet.

0:33:260:33:29

He's ventured to Buckinghamshire,

0:33:290:33:32

intent on doing a deal for the car insignia

0:33:320:33:34

that he bought for £80.

0:33:340:33:36

For petrol-head Phil, it's a pilgrimage.

0:33:360:33:39

The Fox has come to see Dick Skipworth,

0:33:460:33:49

classic car enthusiast and owner of a large collection of cars

0:33:490:33:52

from the famous Ecosse Ecurie race team,

0:33:520:33:55

winners of two 24-hour Le Mans races in the 1950s.

0:33:550:33:59

I think this is what heaven looks like, isn't it?

0:34:010:34:03

-Heaven?

-Yeah.

0:34:030:34:05

I don't know.

0:34:050:34:07

This is just fantastic.

0:34:070:34:10

-These are competition cars, aren't they?

-Yes.

0:34:100:34:12

They're all currently in competition in historic racing.

0:34:120:34:16

There's a well-known driver's name on there, isn't there?

0:34:160:34:18

-Jackie Stewart.

-Yes.

-Should read "Sir Jackie Stewart" now.

0:34:180:34:22

He was Jackie when he drove it.

0:34:220:34:24

Well, Dick, there is a real reason why I'm here.

0:34:240:34:27

I went to an antiques fair in Malvern

0:34:270:34:29

and I bought this.

0:34:290:34:30

My goodness!

0:34:300:34:31

-Shiny, isn't it?

-It is.

0:34:310:34:33

I mean, it isn't chrome.

0:34:330:34:35

I would think this has come out of a showroom, hasn't it?

0:34:350:34:38

It must have done, I think.

0:34:380:34:39

I thought I'd need to find a man

0:34:390:34:41

who's got a certain passing interest in the old big cat.

0:34:410:34:44

-I wonder!

-At the minute, Dick, I can't think of anybody else

0:34:450:34:50

other than you who's around here.

0:34:500:34:53

Well, it's a nice thing, Phil, to have on the garage wall.

0:34:530:34:56

Bit of memorabilia.

0:34:560:34:58

Would 100 quid be all right?

0:34:580:35:00

I'll shake you by the hand now. You're an absolute gentleman.

0:35:000:35:03

Deal done, the cars take centre stage,

0:35:030:35:05

and there's one in particular that really gets the revs going.

0:35:050:35:08

C-Type Jaguar - it's absolutely fantastic, isn't it?

0:35:080:35:12

There she is, Philip.

0:35:120:35:13

Would you like to drive it?

0:35:130:35:15

ENGINE PURRS

0:35:160:35:17

Bye!

0:35:200:35:21

Yes, the car's not part of the deal, Phil.

0:35:210:35:23

Mr Serrell has to settle for a quick go in the C-Type

0:35:230:35:26

and a £20 profit.

0:35:260:35:28

It's all still to play for in this tense battle of selling prowess.

0:35:290:35:32

Our antiques lord and lady each have two items left to sell.

0:35:320:35:37

Christina is the first to strike, as she visits a contact from her little black book -

0:35:370:35:41

mum-of-two Laura, to show her the well-loved but tidied-up £35 rocking horse.

0:35:410:35:47

What do you think?

0:35:470:35:49

Well, it could do with a bit of care and attention, I think.

0:35:490:35:52

You might be right, bless him. But he is from the 1930s.

0:35:520:35:54

He's by a firm called Patterson Edwards.

0:35:540:35:56

So he's actually by a known maker.

0:35:560:35:59

They started in the 1890s and they finished in the 1980s.

0:35:590:36:02

So they were there quite a long time, really.

0:36:020:36:04

Father-in-law Chas has tightened up all the screws,

0:36:040:36:08

so it should be ready for rocking.

0:36:080:36:10

And price-wise, I was hoping for about 50 quid for him.

0:36:100:36:13

As much as I love him,

0:36:130:36:16

I think it's going to take a bit of money

0:36:160:36:18

to make him look beautiful again.

0:36:180:36:20

So I think the highest I'd be happy to go would be £40.

0:36:200:36:24

Little bit more?

0:36:260:36:27

£42.50?

0:36:270:36:29

-£42.50 sounds really good to me.

-It's a deal.

-Thank you very much.

0:36:310:36:34

Yes, Christina rocks her way to a small profit of £7.50

0:36:340:36:39

and Archie and Scarlett take it for a test drive.

0:36:390:36:42

There we go - not a huge profit, but so great to see it being used again

0:36:540:36:56

and hopefully, he'll be loved long into the future.

0:36:560:36:59

Just the handcart to go!

0:36:590:37:01

Sneakily, though, the Fox is looking to land a killer blow

0:37:010:37:05

by doubling up on his last two items.

0:37:050:37:08

He's headed to Lechlade in Gloucestershire

0:37:080:37:10

with his gin barrel and crimping iron.

0:37:100:37:13

These are my last two bits to sell,

0:37:130:37:15

and I've brought them to an antiques centre, where lots of sellers means,

0:37:150:37:19

hopefully, lots of buyers too.

0:37:190:37:21

First up, Phil shows the 19th-century gin barrel that cost him £70 to dealer Richard.

0:37:210:37:28

I'd like to try and get close to 120 quid - what do you think?

0:37:280:37:31

-£100?

-Is that your best shot?

0:37:330:37:35

-Yeah.

-I tell you what, you've been fair with me - I'm going to take that. Thank you.

0:37:360:37:40

You're welcome.

0:37:400:37:41

So, Phil makes a neat £30 profit on the gin barrel

0:37:410:37:44

and then quickly moves on to see dealer John,

0:37:440:37:48

a client who has expressed an interest

0:37:480:37:50

in the early 19th-century crimping iron that set him back £100.

0:37:500:37:54

-These would have crimped collars, wouldn't they?

-Yes, cuffs and collars.

0:37:560:38:00

-You'd have had a starched collar, a bit like Upstairs Downstairs.

-Yes.

0:38:000:38:03

And it would have been affixed to a table...

0:38:030:38:06

-Yes.

-..and in a laundry room or somewhere like that.

0:38:060:38:09

It would have been a stately home or something.

0:38:090:38:11

It really would have been Downton Abbey in the ground floor.

0:38:110:38:13

Yes. And it would have had two pokers,

0:38:130:38:16

with ring handles so you could pull them in. You put them in the fire,

0:38:160:38:19

warm them up, and then put them in there

0:38:190:38:22

and then it would warm these rollers up

0:38:220:38:24

and you'd just adjust it.

0:38:240:38:27

I was hoping I would get close to 150, 160 quid.

0:38:270:38:30

That's what I was hoping for.

0:38:300:38:32

No way, no.

0:38:320:38:33

It's not complete.

0:38:330:38:36

Without the pokers.

0:38:360:38:38

-John, it's 180 years old!

-Put it this way,

0:38:380:38:40

-I've never seen one complete.

-Well, there you are, then!

0:38:400:38:43

But it's very nice. Um...

0:38:430:38:45

-I've got to get a profit on it.

-Of course.

-£135.

-Is that your best shot?

0:38:460:38:51

Yeah, £135.

0:38:510:38:52

-Your best shot?

-I think so.

0:38:520:38:54

-£135.

-OK. Well, I'm going to shake you by the hand on that.

0:38:540:38:57

-You sure?

-Yeah.

0:38:570:38:59

-I think you've been very fair to me.

-It's not a bad piece.

0:38:590:39:02

-I love it.

-I could live with it.

0:39:020:39:03

It's a crisp £35 profit for the Fox,

0:39:030:39:06

and with that, he's all sold up.

0:39:060:39:10

Two sales in one - that's the way to go at it!

0:39:110:39:14

The only thing is, I'm not sure overall

0:39:140:39:16

if I've made quite enough money to beat Christina.

0:39:160:39:19

As this epic battle between two proud and noble knights of the antiques world nears its end,

0:39:210:39:26

all the pressure is now on Christina.

0:39:260:39:28

Yes, our steely-eyed expert has headed back to London,

0:39:410:39:44

where she's hoping to get a nice bit of bread and honey

0:39:440:39:47

for the cart that cost her £75.

0:39:470:39:49

When I saw this in Malvern, I thought it would be absolutely ideal

0:39:510:39:54

for a market trader. I've come to one of the most famous food markets in the world,

0:39:540:39:58

because I think I know a man who might just be able to put it to good use.

0:39:580:40:01

-Hi, Rory.

-How are you doing?

-All right. Here's the barrow.

0:40:030:40:07

I sent you pictures of it.

0:40:070:40:09

-Can I have a look?

-Of course you can.

0:40:090:40:11

I think it was painted quite recently as well.

0:40:110:40:13

He sanded down all the spokes and that kind of thing.

0:40:130:40:16

I think it's an early 20th-, late 19th-century one.

0:40:160:40:20

It's good and solid.

0:40:200:40:22

No brakes, no suspension!

0:40:220:40:24

-No mod cons.

-No mod cons, sadly.

0:40:240:40:27

So...

0:40:270:40:29

I was hoping to get

0:40:290:40:31

somewhere in the region of about 250 quid for it.

0:40:310:40:34

Something like that. What's your thoughts about that?

0:40:340:40:37

That's quite a lot for a wheelbarrow.

0:40:370:40:39

Hmm, it's not started well.

0:40:390:40:42

I would think more like £120 would be about the price.

0:40:430:40:45

That's quite generous.

0:40:470:40:49

Rory may have had a butcher's at the cart,

0:40:490:40:51

but he's proving a tough customer to agree a price with.

0:40:510:40:54

Can Christina wheel and deal her way to the profit she needs for victory?

0:40:540:40:58

All will be revealed.

0:40:580:41:00

Our duelling duo both started with £750 of their own money to spend.

0:41:020:41:07

Christina bagged six buys for a total cost of £530.

0:41:070:41:11

Phil was more frugal.

0:41:110:41:14

He spent £402

0:41:140:41:15

and made five purchases.

0:41:150:41:18

But the only thing that matters now

0:41:180:41:20

is who has made the most profit.

0:41:200:41:22

All of the money that Christina and Phil have made

0:41:240:41:26

from today's challenge will go to charities of their choice.

0:41:260:41:29

So, without further ado,

0:41:290:41:31

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

0:41:310:41:35

-Hello, lovey.

-How are you?

-Very well. How are you?

-Good to see you.

0:41:370:41:40

Antique fair.

0:41:400:41:42

For me, one of the problems is, if you go round and see lots of stuff...

0:41:420:41:45

"I'll come back for that", yes.

0:41:450:41:48

"I'll buy something in a minute" and then it's gone.

0:41:480:41:50

What was your favourite bit?

0:41:500:41:52

Oh, my favourite bit was my car sign.

0:41:520:41:54

I had a day selling that that will live with me forever.

0:41:540:41:57

-Really?

-Yeah!

0:41:570:41:59

Absolutely stunning. But what about you?

0:41:590:42:02

Well, I was working on the theory of stick with what you know.

0:42:020:42:05

-You jewellery-ed, didn't you?

-I jewellery-ed, yeah.

0:42:050:42:07

And it seemed to work.

0:42:070:42:09

Bearing in mind that you jewellery-ed to the max,

0:42:090:42:12

I think this is bottom-smacking time!

0:42:120:42:15

OK, the 3-2-1. 3...2...1...go!

0:42:150:42:18

Oh, yeah!

0:42:200:42:21

I thought as much.

0:42:210:42:22

-Not hugely.

-Your jewellery did well, didn't it?

0:42:220:42:26

-Well, I think stick to what you know. What do you know?

-Nothing.

0:42:260:42:29

Don't keep following me!

0:42:340:42:35

So Christina takes the spoils of today's knightly battle,

0:42:370:42:41

and why? Because she managed to sell the cart

0:42:410:42:44

for a contest-winning price of £145...

0:42:440:42:49

OK, deal.

0:42:490:42:50

-Enjoy your handcart.

-I will.

0:42:500:42:51

..pocketing £70 profit.

0:42:510:42:54

Hard luck, Mr Serrell. Better luck next time.

0:42:560:42:58

Christina beat me fair and square,

0:42:580:43:00

but do you know, it was worth it just to go and see all those fabulous classic cars.

0:43:000:43:04

Given half the chance, I'd be back there again tomorrow.

0:43:040:43:08

But in fact tomorrow Phil has a chance to redeem himself

0:43:080:43:12

as our duelling dealers go head-to-head

0:43:120:43:14

at a car boot sale in London.
