Our teams today are two pairs of mothers and daughters
so stand by for all those feminine wiles as they go out there
to try and make the maximum profits.
Baby here may not be real,
but our teams sure are!
Let's go Bargain Hunting!
We've come to North Lanarkshire, Bargain Hunters, in Scotland.
Glasgow is about 18 miles that way, roughly,
but we're going to take in the peace, the quiet, the tranquillity of the Clyde Valley. Och, aye!
We're at the Garrion Bridges Antiques and Arts Centre.
Before we start, let's have a look at what's coming up.
The reds come under pressure when time runs away from them.
-I can't remember where it is.
-We've lost it.
Differing tastes cause all sorts of problems for the blues.
-I'd go with the lamb.
Sorry, Mother. I promised I wouldn't, but I can't resist it!
And both teams have success at the auction. But who will come out on top?
That's good, isn't it?
But before all that,
we have £300, three items and one hour to shop.
All our teams have to do is buy the right items for the right money so they make a right profit.
Their items go under the hammer at the auction house
and we'll see who made the wisest decisions.
So let's get this game started and meet the teams.
For the reds we've got Marlene and Lauren.
-For the blues we've got Jane and Margaret. Welcome.
-How are you two going to get on?
-I think we'll do very well.
We're very similar natures, Lauren and I. We love shopping.
-We love spending money!
-What about when you're not spending money?
-I'm a teacher and I have been for 34 years.
-What other interests do you have outside education?
I'm a bit of a rock fan!
-My husband is a great rock fan and it's rubbed off on me a bit!
So we go to concerts. We're going to see AC/DC at Hampden.
-What do you think about this, Lauren? Is she embarrassing?
-Not at all!
-She's coming too!
You're going too? Lauren, what do you get up to?
I'm a jewellery designer.
I graduated from the Glasgow School of Art four years ago and I work in the industry.
I've decided to start up my own business.
-Is that earring one of yours?
-It is, indeed, yes!
Well, that's very good.
What are you going to be looking out for today?
-Jewellery is the obvious one.
-Maybe a bit of silver.
Yep. And anything kind of decorative and eye-catching.
Good luck with that.
Now for our next mother and daughter and...
should I say grandchild?
Margaret, what's going on with your baby there?
-It's not any old baby, Tim.
-Many people think she is,
but she's a baby doll that I purchased
and I was so impressed by her that I've decided to make them myself.
How many are you proposing to make?
-I think about one a year is enough, Tim, don't you?
A jolly little fellow, I must say!
-Jane, you're a retired care home worker.
-What do you get up to in your spare time?
-Well, walking dogs,
reading about crime, real crime.
What's this with you and crime?
I love real crime. I love reading about it, watching it on TV.
What do you like to collect, Jane?
Murano glass - I'm very fond of that.
And silver - I love silver.
Margaret, when you go on holiday, you go with the entire family?
-Yes, we do.
-What sort of things do you get up to, Margaret?
We went ghost hunting two years ago, the family.
-Yes, we're all into that, ghost hunting, yes.
-And we caught an orb on one of our photographs.
Did you get cream for it?
No, it turned out to be my brother-in-law's bald head!
Which he won't forgive me for!
It's what they call the great orb!
Now the money moment.
£300 apiece. Here's your £300. 300.
You know the rules. Your experts await. Off you go!
Very, very good luck.
So, how are our mother and daughter combos going to do?
Either way, they've got some very willing experts there to help them.
# Baby face
# You've got the cutest little baby face #
Paul Laidlaw is planning on showing the reds that's he's no mummy's boy!
While Keith Baker is going to give some motherly advice to the blues.
Follow your instinct. You've got an hour.
Better get to it, hadn't we?
-Anything in there that you thought, "Wow!"?
-No, I don't really like Scottish jewellery.
Being as where we are, it would be nice to look for some Wally dogs.
-Right. Let's go and find some Wally dogs.
-Let's see if we can get any.
Keith doesn't seem enamoured with that idea! The reds are having more luck with Paul.
-There's a compact here.
-Its a nice field. Its art.
-What kind of period is that?
-Is it '50s?
-Shall we have a look?
-Could we have a wee look?
-I like it.
The condition of these deteriorates in damp
because they're frequently gilt brass lacquered over base metal.
-When it goes, it goes. Isn't it sweet?
It's got to be, hasn't it?
-I'd like one of those on my dressing table.
That lifts up for the powder. How much is it?
-Guess. What do you think?
You get the prize.
-Let's go for it, eh?
That seems a lot of money to me.
-I think that's worth 20 to £40 at auction.
You're a haggler, Lauren. You go for it!
While Lauren's left to haggle for the compact,
the blues are discovering they have completely differing tastes.
-Oh, Mother, don't even look!
-Oh, that's nice.
-The cranberry glass. I knew you'd like it.
-Ooh, there's some Wally dogs.
-They're too dear.
-Sorry, Mother. I think they're lovely.
Is this actually a sampler or a reproduction of a sampler?
I collect samplers myself so I'm drawn to images like that.
Samplers, cranberry glass, ceramic dogs.
Will this lot ever agree on anything?
-Oh, I like that, Margaret.
-Mum fancies that one there.
which I think is probably enough.
You'd better handle it.
Something I have noticed is that there's this gilding here.
-It's very rubbed.
-Ah, it is.
-So it's not quite as pristine.
The actual piece is... The piece doesn't have any cracks or anything.
But to a collector, that will ogle a little bit, actually.
This is all applied by hand, the white enamel.
It's mid- to late-Victorian, I would have thought.
As you spotted just now, the colouring is cranberry.
-What do you think, then?
-I think it's very feminine. I would buy it.
-Is that because it's pink?
-It's because it's pink!
-But it's very cheerful. Optimistic.
It would brighten up a window, wouldn't it?
-Lovely decoration. Very feminine.
-The thing is, it is missing,
but you didn't notice it immediately.
Hopefully the colour and enamel will win the day.
-You both like it? Are you sure?
-Let's see what we can do.
Could that be mother's ruin? At £35 paid, who knows?
Let's see how those reds are getting on.
I went and asked about the compact and they won't go lower than 38.
Well, it's up to you. I think you need to fall back on that.
-If there's nothing better, and you go, "What the hell. Take a punt." Then take a punt.
OK, we'll leave it till later.
-Where now, then, girls?
-Right. I saw some things I liked.
The reds still haven't got their first item
but Lauren's got them hunting for something she's seen before.
Where is it?
-I did see one.
-Was it in this case?
OK. Could this be a lost cause, ladies?
-I can't remember where it is.
-Perhaps someone's bought it. It was here.
I think perhaps it's gone.
You've gotta be quick off the mark in these places.
There's always something else to look at.
I've seen two small silver pin dishes.
Edwardian. High Rococo.
Couldn't be more traditional. And in a presentation case.
Why don't you take one each and tell me how substantial they feel.
Oh. Quite light.
Well, they do it for me.
Let me pop this case down, handsome though it is.
That's all right. There's rigidity to them.
-Lovely clear marks.
Aren't they just?
Let's see if we can pin these down.
They're assayed at Sheffield in...
That's a little Gothic M. 1904. Edwardian silver.
That helps, doesn't it? It just rings right.
The case, the condition is faultless.
And a good name - Walker & Hall.
Now, what's the price? £78.
-My estimate 50 to 80.
In this instance I'd be happy to go away and do a job of work
and try and get these down to... What do you want to pay for them?
-About 45, 50?
-Like your style.
I'll give it a go. I'll have a chat. I won't commit. I'll come back and tell you.
Thanks for that. Great.
I wonder if Paul can do any better than Lauren?
-Not generous. £65.
-You're not gonna win a lot, you're not gonna lose a lot.
It's all just a little bit too expensive for the reds.
Let's see how the blues are getting on.
Ah! Look what I see!
-What do you see?
-Two pairs of Wally dogs, Mother.
Och, Margaret seems to be set on what she likes.
Without taking them out and looking at them, they do look like they've got some age.
But they're not uncommon, so even at the auction,
if there's others nicer than these, these get left behind.
But that there Keith, he's not gonna give in that easy.
Let's think about these.
I'd quite like to have a look at the sampler here.
People do collect samplers. It might be worth having a look at that.
Ah, the sampler. Thanks for getting that out.
-What do you think of this one, then?
Quite nice, really. It says, "Annie Love,
"Age 13. January 4th 1860."
A wee girl of 13 doing that!
-You know, that really is something, isn't it?
-The stitching is extremely fine.
-Extremely fine stitching.
-The dexterity used in those days
would be the dexterity they use for texting now!
-Ah, just exactly. I know.
-It's a charming piece of work.
-The fact it's got a name on it...
-Is that damage there? Is that damage?
It's inevitable the little threads are coming off.
But it's in fairly good order.
The colours are quite bright, really.
What I'm pleased to see
is that the blues are more prominent than the reds so I hope that's a good sign
that the blues will be more prominent in the auction!
I think it's... Let's have a look at the price.
I think it might be worth a chance.
-It is what it is. It is a genuine antique.
-It's hand done.
I just think somebody out there will love it.
If it makes us a tiny profit, great.
-Yes, I'm happy with that.
-See if we can get the best price for it.
Very persuasive, Keith.
But don't count your chickens until you know the price.
The reds haven't committed to anything yet, so they're searching out other options.
-I saw some Lea Stein. A Lea Stein brooch.
-We like Lea Stein.
-Educate me there!
Well, I've got to say they are hugely stylish,
but I am way out of my comfort zone with these! You tell me.
-What period are these?
-As far as I know,
-she's 1950s, 1960s.
-I think she's French.
-Can you pick and choose or do you grab when...
-Some are more difficult to acquire.
I've never seen the lady with the hairstyle and the suit before.
You've bought these in the past?
-I have done, yes.
-£50 for one.
-In what sort of environment?
-It was a fashion boutique where they sold a range of vintage jewellery.
If £50 is the going rate retail, 40 is going to be enough
to stand a chance.
A lot of work to be done there, isn't there?
-This are coming in at the moment at £134 and you want to pay 80 for them.
-That's a lot.
-A huge drop.
You don't know how long they've been in there.
If they've been there two years, they may be delighted to have a chat. I'd go for it.
Haggling again. Well, it's worth a try.
The blues are still finding it difficult, though, to agree on anything.
-The wee girl with the lamb.
-Do you not like that?
-I like the red dish better.
Hi, I've checked about the sampler.
-They've agreed £80, which I think is fine.
So we've got two items in the bag. Let's go and find that third one.
I'm not so sure they actually said yes to that, Keith!
But OK. That one for you and one for Jane,
but surely with the remaining £185 it's Margaret's choice now?
I'm a flowery person, but that is, ooh...
I expect you like flowers that are more naturalistic.
-Something you'd go and pick in the garden, rather than...
-Sorry, I promised I wouldn't, but I can't resist it.
-It's got flowers on it.
I think that's beautiful, personally.
See the wee embroidery. It's only £6. That's pretty.
There's a wee bit too much space on that for my taste.
-That is you.
-I love that.
-But would you use it?
-No, I would show it.
-That would be cherished in my house.
The gilding looks bare.
Poor Mags. She's not having much luck persuading the other two!
-I haven't told them the price of that yet.
-Coalport. Look at that!
Oh, I love that, Mum.
But is that about to change?
I'm sure these ladies know all there is to know about shopping and impulse buying
and they've only got one hour to find their three items.
So the pressure's really on.
But help could be at hand in the form of the bonus buy.
Any leftover lolly will be used by each team's expert
to buy a surprise item which the team can decide to go with at auction or not.
Any profit or loss that item makes will then be added to their total.
-You like this?
-Yes, I do. I do like it.
Well, it's a nice piece.
A good make, Coalport.
-It is very nice.
-How are we doing, Jane?
Doing fine. I love everything!
-You love everything!
-We want to buy it all!
-You've got how many lots?
-She's destroyed mine. My choices.
-Em, we have two lots.
-Two lots already.
40 minutes have gone by. You've got 20 minutes to find this last lot.
-Are you getting on with Keith OK?
-Is he giving you any stick?
-Not at all. Mother is, but Keith's not.
Anyway, buck up. Only 20 minutes left.
-I think that's so pretty.
It's only what they call transfer printed,
-so it's not painted or anything.
-It's gilt transfer. But very exotic.
-It's blue, which is appropriate.
-I would buy that.
You did say blue. I'm going with the winning colour here.
£90. They'll be probably asking about 80 for it.
We'll try and get them down further than that.
-You'd like to go with this.
-I personally will go with that. My choice.
-That's your choice. OK.
Phew! Margaret finally gets her own way. They pay £70 for the bowl.
-We've got the third item, so we're done.
It's not going so well for the reds.
They can't get hold of the dealer to agree a price for the brooches,
and so with seven minutes left, the pressure is on to find a third item.
This is getting a bit...
I have the news on the brooches.
It's some complicated maths. It's about £110 for the pair.
-I still would really like to go for them.
People know it. They're trendy-looking and they'll do well in Glasgow.
So we've got a strong there.
We've got an option on the silver
which we now know is 65 or thereabouts.
And the compact. They're all things I wouldn't bet my life on.
They're there or thereabouts and maybe to an extent longish shots.
-The ball's in your court, but I can throw something else at you that's speculative?
It's so cheap, it's the kind of thing you might make a killing on.
-Go for it.
-Have a look at this.
That is... Oh, it just got slightly better.
-This is a pocket barometer.
-An aneroid barometer.
-It helps you calculate altitude.
-But what's the problem with that?
But it has innards. Because it's not an empty box.
Commonly known as a crow's-foot mark, used by the British military.
We know it's got a problem. It's a pig in a poke.
-It's also £15!
With a hand and warranted, that's worth 50 to £80 at auction, any day of the week.
But even as is, I don't think I'm gonna bet on your compact or your silver or your brooches.
But I'd bet on that. But you have to make up your mind
-which of the four pieces you want to bank on.
-I'd better run.
-OK, we'll decide.
-See you in two ticks.
Right. What are we gonna go for?
-I do still like the compact. If you get a compact collector.
-The compact and the brooches.
-But the silver's good.
It's so tense! They've actually bought nothing so far,
but which three will they choose to go for, bargain hunters?
We've plumped on...?
Been waiting for this. You're on your last seconds here.
-One or two seconds left.
-What are we doing?
As they approach the final fence!
-We're going for the Lea Stein brooches...
-The silver dishes
and your pocket barometer.
I think that is an interesting portfolio, if ever I saw one.
You've finished, have you?
-Thank goodness for that because your time is up!
Wow! Well, I'm exhausted. I don't know about you.
At the last minute, the reds decided the barometer trumped the compact
and paid just £10 for this little beauty.
The complicated maths on the Lea Stein brooches added up to £107.20.
The silver trays were bought for 65.
-You left it to the last minute, didn't you two?
Well, anyway, you finished up all right.
You've spent £182.20. I'd like 117.80.
Now, Paul, only you could be inheriting £117.80,
a more awkward amount I can't imagine!
What are you going to do with it?
I am going to try and find another little banker
because I fear the brooches, sexy though they are, are going to make a big hole in our expectations.
-I need to find a little banker.
-I think I have.
-You're not gonna tell us about it, are you?
-Keep us on the hook till later in the programme.
-Very good luck.
Let's remind ourselves who the reds are up against and what the blues bought.
They had very different tastes.
But the blues all walked away happy.
Jane got a Victorian cranberry jug for 35.
While the sampler kept Keith satisfied at £80.
Finally, Margaret's persistence paid off
with the £70 Coalport bowl.
You operate quickly, you two. You're dead slick.
-A force to be reckoned with, I say.
And you spent £185, which is quite magnificent.
Which is your favourite piece, Janey?
-I think the Coalport.
-The Coalport's your favourite.
-And your favourite, Mags?
That's nice, isn't it?
I'd like £115 of leftover lolly to give to Keith Baker.
-Look at that! You're happy with that, aren't you?
What are you going to spend it on for the bonus buy to make a huge profit?
I've had a look around and seen something that's small but beautifully formed.
-Bit like our team, then?
Nice to see women that make their minds up quickly. That's why we were so quick.
-Lovely, isn't it?
-It's a real tribute.
-Go and get your item in case somebody else has bought it.
-I hope not!
Me, I'm heading off back into Glasgow
to look at something really interesting.
In the late 19th century, Glasgow was a centre for the Temperance Movement.
In the city, tea was promoted as an alternative to alcohol.
As a result, tea rooms became popular and fashionable places to be seen.
Four of the largest tea rooms in the city
were owned by Kate Cranston,
some of which uniquely decorated by celebrated Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Fittings from three of these rooms
are now on display at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
In 1911, Miss Cranston commissioned Mackintosh to revamp the interior
of one of her tea rooms in Ingram Street completely.
And this is the result.
I've got special permission to come up here and get close and personal with these fittings
which have been set up in the museum exactly as they were in the tea room at the time.
We've got a pagoda-like corner here
in which you would intimately enjoy your cup of Oriental tea.
The light in the room was not brilliant,
and one of the things that he did was to introduce mirrors.
Here we've got a series of vertical silvered glass panels.
The silvering itself is imperfect,
so it doesn't produce an ideal mirror
but what it does do is to reflect the light.
It's difficult to assess the inventive genius of Mackintosh,
but I'd like you to have a look at this seriously whacky light fitting.
It looks a bit like an Oriental warrior's helmet.
It's made out of copper and artificially coloured to give it this patination.
Then Mackintosh, out of simple pine,
has created this towering pagoda above.
And that is attention to detail big time.
One of the most striking features in the tea rooms
would have been this structure.
Can you believe it that a woman sat in here and her sole job was to take the money.
This structure has had the Mackintosh makeover.
He's got a pagoda support here in the roof.
It's moulded with Chinese cloud bands.
And what a brilliant job he's done of the vertical supports.
A series of slightly stepped rectangular supports
and where they're joined, there are blocks that contain
further tapering rectangles.
Even the mahogany surface over which the cash would have been passed
has got this Chinese dental-type moulding.
In short, a perfect place.
The big question today is, are we going to have a perfect result
over at the Glasgow auction?
It's great to be at Great Western auctions in Glasgow
with our hostess and auctioneer, Anita Manning. Hi, Anita.
-Very nice to see you.
Marlene and Lauren, with Paul Laidlaw, went first with these brooches.
Lots of style. Lea was a Parisienne.
She made these wonderful brooches between the '60s and the '80s.
These two are actually two of the most desirable ones.
-That makes a change, then, doesn't it?
This one here was modelled as Joan Crawford.
And we have Scarlett O'Hara here.
What we want to know is, will they make a profit?
I've estimated them 70 to 90.
Ooh. Well, they paid an amazing £107.20p.
That might be a wee bit too much.
But I'll do my very, very best.
I'm quite sure you will. Brilliant.
Next we have something supremely traditional.
Rococo style little Edwardian silver dishes.
I think they're a lovely item.
Rococo style, as you say, but kind of blowing a kiss
at the Art Nouveau.
Yes! That's one way of putting it!
She's so clever, isn't she? Absolutely right.
-How much, then?
-I would say 50 to 80.
OK. Fine. They're just about in the middle at £65.
-There's hope all round for that.
Now, how are you on your scientific instruments?
Are we going to be able to pick a hole somewhere in your expertise?
-I bet you've looked this up!
-Of course I have!
-Who's it by?
-It's T.Wheeler Scientific Instruments Ltd.
They made instruments for the Royal Navy,
so they must have been good.
Will it make more than £10, do you think?
-Yes. I've estimated at 30 to 50.
-There we go.
Overall, then, there's lots of hope here.
But just in case, they might need their bonus buy.
Let's have a look at it.
You left Paul £117.80. Let's see what he spent it on.
Well, then, ladies. Can you see that?
-What do those letters say?
The Auxiliary Territorial Service.
These are women that volunteer to, effectively, the army
to free up men for the front.
These women actually end up manning anti-aircraft batteries
and so on, OK? A wonderful history to these units.
But this little beastie - see that on the back?
That number there?
This is actually an issue award. This is a rarity.
These were officially handed out
to the first volunteers, circa 1938, to the ATS.
-What's that worth?
-You are bob on, in my opinion!
It'll make 20 to £30. How much did I pay for it?
You don't decide now. Decide later.
For you at home, let's find out what the auctioneer thinks.
There we go, Anita.
Bought by Paul Laidlaw as ATS.
Well, it's a fairly modest-looking wee thing.
But the history makes it interesting.
It was an early issue
so this may have belonged to one of those women
who joined up on the first day that they were able to.
-What's the estimate?
-Ten to 20.
£12 paid, so he should be lucky in making a profit on that.
That's it for the reds.
Now for the blues. Jane and Margaret with Keith Baker.
Their first item is this cranberry glass jug.
It's a fairly standard Victorian jug.
But people like cranberry. It wasn't cheap at the time
because of the gold content. There is enamelling and gilding
-which unfortunately is a wee bit rubbed.
-But not too bad.
-They paid £35. Was that too much?
I've estimated it 25 to 40.
Hmm. Do you think that's a generous estimate, or pretty spot-on?
It would definitely struggle to make the top estimate.
-Next is the sampler. Do you rate that?
-People enjoy samplers.
-Yes. So how much?
-60 to 80.
£80 paid. So that's a bit tight, too.
-I think so.
-What about the Coalport bowl?
It's very colourful. It's in perfect condition.
It's not an early one, but people will love this wonderful vibrant pattern
in the interior of the bowl.
You're ever enthusiastic. Will you be enthusiastic with the estimate?
-50 to 70.
-Not quite enthusiastic enough, cos they paid £70.
All in all, these three items look a bit dodgy to me.
I think they'll need their bonus buy. Let's have a look.
-So, girls, you spent £185.
And you gave £115 to Keith Baker.
What did he spend it on?
Probably made in about the 1940s.
And little dress studs. I went for these because gold prices at the moment are very good at auction.
-What do you think of them?
-Hmm. I like them.
They are very nice. I like the pattern on them. What do you think?
I wish more men would wear them, quite honestly, I do.
I like them. I don't know how popular they would be.
They cost £58.
I've got a feeling that the gold value is there in that.
-I think it was a good buy, personally.
You don't have to decide right now. Decide later.
For the audience at home, let's find out what Anita thinks.
It would appear these came from the right town.
-Do you rate them?
Well, these are quite nicely made.
Art Deco, engine-turned. You have the studs with them.
They're in perfect condition and in the original box.
So you're coming up with a monster estimate?
50 to 80.
OK. £58 they paid.
So that's not too bad, actually. And you're in good voice?
-Marlene and Lauren. How are you feeling?
Are you? What are you most excited about, Marlene?
Making some money!
Now, the moment of truth.
Will plastic win out?
Two Lea Stein celluloid laminate brooches.
These two are two of the rarest in her collection.
Two very interesting brooches.
Will you start me at £50?
£50. Start me at 50. 50.
60. 70. 80. 90.
-100 for the two. 110.
You're in profit!
One hun... 120 back in.
With you, sir at 140. 140.
Any advance on 140?
The lady's back at 150. Any advance
All done at 150?

-You don't know how they got on?
Perfect. Mags, how are you feeling, girl?
I've got my hanky here in case I have a bubble in case we lose!

-Ma, how are you feeling?
-I'm full of confidence!
-Bet you haven't got your hanky with you!
-Just in case!
-Keith, have you got your hanky?
No, I'm confident. No hanky for me!
Now, the sampler you found, Keith. I've been pretty crabby about it
cos I think it's on the grubby side of grubby. I don't think it'll do well.
If I'm wrong, I'll be delighted.

-You must be very pleased.
A total of £35 and the prediction was so difficult.
You had every chance of making losses there and you're £35 up.
-That is short of brilliant.
You've got £35 in the bank.
Are you going to risk it and go with the studs? Studs.
-What will you do?
-Keith said it'll make its money just in the gold.
-We'll go with it.

-This is exciting!
All done at £90.
That's brilliant, isn't it?
-Two shy of 60. That is £32.
-Well done, Keith!
£32. You are £67 up at the end of the day. How about that?
-Thank you, Keith.
-Put it there, mate.
A thoroughly good result on the cufflinks. Brilliant.
Now, don't say a word to the reds, all right?
£67 could be a winning score. All will be revealed in a moment!
-Have you been chatting at all?
No communication. Lovely.
I can reveal, of course, that today's teams have both made significant profits,
which is rather lovely.
But which team is marginally behind?
And it is the blues.
-Get your tissues, out!
-I knew this was gonna happen! I knew it!
You made two stonking profits, Keith. Well done.
Your sampler, you made £30 on that, which is very good.
And the bonus buy. Made another £32 on the studs.
So that's a significantly good job.
Overall, you are plus £67.
-Which is brilliant.
This doesn't happen often. Just shows, come north of the border
-and there's a bit of action.
-Hope you had a good time.
Mother and daughter and Keith Baker.
But the winners today by a small head,
cos you're only £75.80 in profit, which is extraordinary.
But the biggest profit of all going to Lauren with your brooches, which is great.
But otherwise it's stonking profits all across the line.
-A very happy result.
So, £75.80. There we go.
A bit more change coming up. There we go. That's your 80p!
Hope you had a nice time. Join us soon for some more bargain hunting! Yes?
