Greetings from bonny Scotland. How's your day going?
Well, it's about to get a lot bonnier as we go bargain hunting!
For today's show we're in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh
and our teams have got a few hundred notes of Scottish capitol to spend.
Here's a taste of what's to come.
A friendship is put to the test.
-That's in your opinion.
We're having issues.
While the youthful blues go seriously old school.
-You know, you've a penchant for the old-fashioned?
Both teams get a grand sum of £300 to find three items
to sell at auction in the hope of making a profit.
Now, let's meet the teams.
-Well, hello everyone.
Great to see you. Jen and Helen, you've been friends for ever right?
-A long time.
-How many years?
-You met as children.
-And how did you meet?
-Helen was one of the first people I met
when I moved to Edinburgh 28 years ago
and we were both cooks at Pollock Halls University.
-Were you really?
-Yes. Cooking for 1200 lovely students every day.
-It says here you like a bargain, yes?
-Yes, I love a bargain.
Ever found anything really spectacular?
Erm, I think the best buy I've had was some Lalique glass.
Was it? A real bit?
Helen tells me it's not because she's the expert
but I think it's real so I'm happy with it.
-You paid not a lot?
-No, I only paid a tenner for it.
So, you're going to be the arch bargainer out of you two today?
-I would hope so because Helen is a wee tad extravagant.
-Just a wee bit.
-A bit flash with her taste?
-What do you do for a living, Hels?
-I sell posh smoked salmon.
-Yes. It's made up in the North Highlands of Scotland.
-Hand smoked, the real thing?
-The real thing.
Real thing. Hand smoked, packed by hand, sliced by hand,
and it goes all over the world.
-Will you be shopping for cooking paraphernalia today?
-I'd like to.
-Find a nice whisk.
-Yes, well I collect miniature cruets
but they have to be less than seven centimetres tall.
-I've got about 300 in glass cases around my dining room.
-You have 300 cruets? Less than seven centimetres tall?
-Around your dining room?
OK, I think enough said. Think we'll move on. Well done.
Have you heard ever heard of that? 300 cruets!
-Suzy and Cameron, you met in a very unusual way.
-I punched his chops.
-You what? You punched his chops?
No! I started kickboxing in the second year of university.
I went to Edinburgh Uni.
And Cameron was one of the helpers of the class.
And did you kick him one?
I did. I tried it right hook on him
and it was obviously... that was it after that.
-Knocked him to the ground.
Have you kept up kickboxing?
Yes, I still go now. Not as regularly as I'd like, but yes.
What are you going to be looking for today?
I love arts and design, especially jewellery.
I worked in a jewellery boutique for a while
so something that's a bit unusual.
-Yeah, why not?
Brilliant. Cameron, you're a bit of a design king.
Well, I like to think so!
Tell us about that.
Back I university I studied product design
got my degrees there, worked as a furniture designer down south
and thought I'd go on my own so started a company
with my best friend who's my business partner.
We basically took it from there.
We design and manufacture homeware accessories,
greetings cards, wedding stationery and a bit of jewellery as well.
With all this design experience what things are you going for today?
Ideally something maybe art deco, silver, as long as it's good design
and good quality then it could be anything.
-But I'll have an opinion on it.
I wish you well. The money moment. Look, £300 apiece. There's your 300.
-You know the rules. Your experts await and off you go.
Very, very good luck. Aren't we lucky today with such great teams?
So who's your money on? Reds or the Blues?
Risking his hand on the red team is that font of all knowledge
And chancing his arm for the Blues is the ever wise Mr Paul Laidlaw.
How will they fare at this fair? Off we go.
This is where dreams can be made OK? We can prosper, we can succeed.
Are we blowing the money or not? £300?
Depends, as long as it's good quality, good design. Then we could.
I think we need to spend it all.
-I think we need to be very careful with Helen.
-Let's start, let's do it.
I'll spend the money!
Get in amongst it. Pick it up. Rummage.
-Nothing grabbing me, I'm afraid.
-Nothing yet, no.
-I think these are quite nice.
I don't like that.
-I like that.
Well, in your opinion.
Now girls, no squabbling.
-These are nice boxes. Beautiful, isn't it?
-The top one is cabochon.
-Is that actual turquoise, do you think?
-I would think not.
It would be porcelain, in all likelihood or glass.
Walnut - love these.
Stratwork spangles and this emboss here.
-What's it like inside?
-Empty, I suspect and look at this patch here.
Minus its divisions here. What a shame.
And these would be easy converted into a nice jewellery box.
-You need no talent to do it.
-How much is the box?
-It's quite a nice box.
-Do you want to have the conversation?
-Just to know.
-Just to see what we could potentially get it for.
All I need to know is whether you can slaughter your price or not.
40 would be the very best.
It's a gamble, a gamble.
-I think we'll leave it just now.
-Thank you very much.
-Thanks very much.
-Will the Blues come back to buy the box?
We'll find out in a bit.
-I like these because we're both into cooking.
I think they're pretty cool.
I know, but from a resale...
I know, I don't think we'd make a lot of money.
I thought you were more salmon, Helen, rather than lobster?
I know, but I just think they're quite nice.
If you went to an auction would you buy them?
I'm not detecting a harmonious vibe from Team Red. Come on, girls.
The designer-mad blues are leading Paul up a rather strange path.
What have you spent? What have you done?
What do you think?
-Do you know you've a penchant for the old-fashioned?
A soda bottle.
I just think this is really quirky
because it's in Edinburgh.
Is that just a whole load of tat?
I think it's a car boot sale we should be taking you to!
I imagine you live in a chic, apartment, stylish. This is a designer.
We've got two really smart,
I think, sophisticated young people,
one is a professional designer and all they pick up
is car boot fodder.
I can't even say kitsch. Victoriana, brass candlesticks, soda siphons.
Give me strength!
It's come from Glasgow.
-Brooches and bugs sell, don't they?
-They go quite well together.
What do you think Jane? You like beetles on brooches?
Not really, no. It's not something that tickles me.
You know, you ladies need to...
-Agree to disagree.
Right, fine. I can see what's going to happen here.
Oh, dear! No one's bought a thing yet.
The designer blues are struggling. Time to take stock.
-Boxes weren't a bad start, were they?
-I like the boxes.
-And they weren't expensive.
-I do like the boxes.
Do we run back and try and buy some boxes?
-Get some purchases under our belt.
-Is that we do?
-Let's go back.
Yes and quick.
Right, come on, let's walk on and see if there's anything else.
-That I might like!
-We're quite daunted.
We're only 20 minutes into our shopping experience
and I do feel there's conflict brewing.
-We've got no silver, no kitchenware.
-Big spend, big profit.
-Right, OK. Well, we'll see.
-We'll see. We'll work on it.
Yes, I think we're having issues.
Well, you're still laughing, girls. That's got to be good.
How much, was it 30 you said? Or 40?
-Is there a meet in the middle?
-37, I'll take.
-Can we do a deal on 37?
Thank you very much.
-Well done. That's bagged. Let's keep going.
Well done indeed blues and quite a smart thing.
Oh, yes. Look at that.
-Now, that has something about it.
-Look at that.
-Yes, I love that.
-We're all in agreement we love this.
-I don't believe it.
-Let's buy it.
-Well said, Charles.
-Heather, what do you think?
-Why has it been drawn to you?
-I like the shape,
I like the handle and I know we're going to Glasgow and I think
art nouveau shape would go down quite well in Glasgow.
It reminds me of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
I love this almost Glaswegian art nouveau...these little cubes here
which is very modern.
-I love it. I really like it. It's nice to find something we both like. I
-And we can agree on. Best price?
-Come on, put your pennyworth in.
-£40. For two pounds.
-Are you sure?
-Is it our first buy?
-Do you both agree? BOTH: Yes! We'll buy it.
We finally have harmony in the red corner. Hooray!
That's one item each.
Well done teams, but the clock ticks onwards to that 60 minute limit.
-A nice brandy warmer.
I do think that's really unusual.
And it's quite a classic design with the glass as well.
-I think that's lovely.
-Ask the question.
Try and buy it, if you want, no more than 20 bearing in mind
we're really under the cosh timewise.
I'm going to have a wee recce round here. Do the business.
Interested in the brandy warmer.
I paid more than that for it.
Absolute rock bottom is 40.
I'll give you it for 30.
I don't think we could really go lower than 20.
I couldn't go that low, I'm afraid. I'll flick a coin. 25 or 30.
-No, we can't go that high. Thanks very much.
-You're not carrying anything.
-He wanted £30 for it.
-He wanted 25, 30.
-25 and you wanted to pay 20.
That's close, man.
-I said 22 and he wouldn't take it.
If you go back, you might get that extra two or three pounds off.
Close to a deal but no cigar or brandy yet.
And from two hit fans of design
to another from across the Channel.
Every well dressed woman
until after the period of the Second World War wouldn't dream
of going out of an evening without one of these things with her.
Fine, it looks nice and golden like that, doesn't it.
Look at that, isn't it beautiful? This discordant group of blue shapes
which is so art deco to the eye has all been painted on by hand
so that when I give that a little fanning effect
all those segments
seem to hover in front of your eyes.
And if you look carefully on the back you can see there's
a signature which is Louise Boulanger.
Look up Louise Boulanger and you'll find that she was an important
fashion designer between the wars.
She and her husband had their own haute couture house in Paris
and indeed her frocks and dresses today are very sought after
So what would a fan like this cost you here in Edinburgh today?
What might it be worth?
Well, in a specialist vintage fashion sale,
a Boulanger fan like this, I think, could be worth as much as £300-£400.
Oh, dear! I think I'll have a cool off!
The shopping hour is three quarters done.
Our blues have got designs on this dealer's wares. At last!
Something a bit more with it!
The lady is wearing iconic brooches by Lea Stein.
They work all day long but they're reasonably expensive.
-I could do a reasonable price for them.
Can you show us reasonable Lea Stein brooches?
There you go.
-They're really really nice.
-Are they you, Suzy?
I don't personally think I would wear the cats.
What does stand out to me is the dog or the peacock.
-I just think they're...
And also, at the minute, there's people wearing loads
of jumpers with Scottie dogs on and that's all kind of coming back.
-Scottie dogs is a big thing this year.
Popular in Scotland? Whatever next?
Look at that display there. They look fantastic.
-And the colours go nice together.
-If we bought all three of them.
-And if you could do a nice price please?
90 would be my best.
-90 for the three?
-Within a shout.
-I don't think it's a bad deal, actually.
-What about 85?
-Come on, be nice!
-You've got a deal.
Thank you so much. That's really kind of you.
Well, that's more like it, Blues. Very stylish.
the Reds have only bought one thing - they've got to find
a couple more bargains they can agree on - and quickly.
-What do you think?
-I quite like it. Do you not like it?
Shall I leave you to it for a second?
-You talk about it, I'm going over here.
-I'll take that as a yes.
-But what's this?
-These are very stylish.
-I like these.
They're very nice, but they are vases.
They're plated, but they have a certain Art Nouveau feel, don't they?
-They could almost walk away.
-I really quite like them.
-I like those.
-So what's your very best price?
< What's on it?
You've got...78 on them, for the both of them.
What about 80?!
-That's up the way!
-Hold on, he's coming out to see us.
That's a good sign. We've got ten minutes. Ten minutes to find two.
-Would you take 60?
-Split the difference. Come on - 65.
-Hold on, is this your wife over here?
She's saying drop the price!
-So is he your husband?
-No, he's my brother-in-law. But I call him Dad!
He reckons he's only going to get us 50 quid at auction.
-He wants 65 for them.
-Hold on. I don't want a family break-up here!
-Split the difference and give them to us for 58.
-58. We're done at 58!
-We want no family break-up here.
-There's no family break-up.
-Are you sure?
-He's always the boss.
-Are you happy with 58? Sister-in-law says yes?
-It's a sale.
-What a lovely family! Thanks very much.
I think the boss was well and truly told there. Well done, Reds!
Three minutes, teams - get your skates on.
We're running out of time, though.
I still keep thinking about the brandy warmer. I do!
I'm sorry, but I do.
-Shall we just go over and double-check and then just buy it?
-Is that what we're going to do?
-OK. Go, go!
Any interesting small jewellery items?
Would you mind if we pick that up and just have a look at it?
-Not at all.
The elephant. How much is your elephant?
I don't think it's going to make...
Needn't have any tremendous age to it. Mid-20th century? But it's rather smart.
-It's an elephant.
-Look at its trunk.
-The trunk looks like it's broken.
-Any chance of 20?
Rock bottom is 25.
Would you prefer to go with this, or go for the blue vase?
-The blue vase is way back over there.
-I can run!
-How much is it going to get at auction?
-In its condition,
-I would say I'd guide him between 50 and £80.
-I love this.
-I prefer the other one, but I'm happy with this.
OK, this is it.
Are you going to hate me for ever?
No, it just means you owe me - we'll think of something.
-We'll go for this.
-You said that. That's on tape.
-I know, I know!
-Right, we're going for this at 25.
-It's your fault if...
No, don't say that! Can we go for this at 25?
Thank you very much.
Well done, Blues. You deserve a wee brandy yourselves.
How about the Reds, though? Can they agree on a third item? Go, Charles!
It's a wonderful blotter.
If you had a desk in a nice big office,
back in the Edwardian times, you may have had this as a blotting pad.
That is solid silver.
With winged cherubs hallmarked for Birmingham 1904, thereabouts.
-It's a bit shabby, Charles.
-What's the best price on that?
-I could go down to 65 on that. 65?
-And how much...?
-I love that.
It's so Art Nouveau, and I would love to buy it,
but I'd want to buy it for about...
-Yes, about 40.
-Let's go for it.
Any chance we could get it for 40?
-No, I can't go that low. 45 is absolutely...
Meet us halfway? 42.50?
No. No. 45, sorry.
45, are we going to take 45? We're running out of time.
-That sounds good to me.
-It's either that or the plates.
No, let's do it. We're running out of time.
-We haven't got a lot of time left.
We'll go at 45 - is that OK?
-That's great, yes. Thank you very much.
-We've done it, guys - we've done it! That's it.
-Well done, Charles. Down to the wire.
I'm not sure how impressed the girls were, though.
Truth will out at the auction, though.
That's it. Time's up.
Let's remind ourselves what the Red team bought, eh?
After their ructions, the Reds rallied
and managed to quaff the Art Nouveau
claret jug for a full-bodied £40.
The Art Nouveau theme continued with their plated vases
and a price tag of £58 and finally, with their time almost out,
Charles spotted their blotter.
That soaked up £45.
-You need to get us something good.
-Girls, this is exciting, isn't it?
-You finished! Well done. And that's your last item.
-So is this your favourite item?
-My favourite is the...vases.
-Yes, I like the vases, actually.
-And the vases going to bring the biggest profit?
-No, I don't think so.
I think basically they caught our eye and we liked them.
-What is going to bring the biggest profit?
How much did you spend in total?
£143 in total.
-So may I have £157 of leftover lolly?
Thank you very much. This is going straight off to young Carlos.
-Thank you two very much.
-Our young pretender.
What are you going to do this?
Hopefully find a nice piece of jewellery.
-Quality, with a spark.
-You are such a tease sometimes, Charles.
Anyway, well done, team, I think you've done fantastically well.
Why don't we remind ourselves of what the Blue team bought?
The designer Blues went for a rather old-fashioned box,
but the price was more with it - £37.
Their style credentials were honoured by their smart second set -
a trio of Lea Stein brooches for £85.
They toasted their final purchase with a brandy warmer,
which cost them a heart-warming £25.
-That was quite tight at the end.
Looking tight all round! So did you have a nice time, Cameron?
-Yes, super. Excellent fun.
-Good for you?
-Yes. It's stressful, but really fun, yes.
-Which is your favourite piece?
-It's a toss-up between the brandy warmer and the brooches.
You can't decide which is your favourite. What about you, Cameron?
The brooches. They're really nice and I can see them doing pretty well.
-And are they going to bring the biggest profit?
-For me, yes.
-I also think the brooches will be... I agree, yes.
-And you spent overall, was it £147?
OK. So, I would like, please, 153 of leftover lolly. Lovely.
Well, that's a tidy sum,
and a really nice amount to be given to go shopping with, I'd say, Paul.
-So have you got any ideas?
-Proper antique, I think.
-Well, he's the man to find it for you, anyway.
Have a nice cup of tea. Good luck, Paul.
Meanwhile, we're going to head for an incredibly stately home in Glasgow.
The Pollok Estate in Glasgow belonged to
the powerful Maxwell clan for almost 700 years.
Its centrepiece, this 18th-century mansion, is now looked after
by the National Trust of Scotland.
It is home to some magnificent pieces,
some of which come from rather further afield than Scotland.
Back in its heyday, this was the most formal entertaining room -
the withdrawing room.
Nowadays, it's known as the music room, but don't worry,
I'm not here to tinkle the ivories,
I'm to show you something rather special.
Boy, are these elaborate bits of ivory!
All Chinese, all dating from the 19th century,
but what fabulous workmanship.
If you didn't want to put your budgerigar in a cage,
in China, what you do is to go and catch a live cricket
and stick it in a little cricket box like that.
With an overhead handle, the cricket would be trapped inside,
going cheep, cheep, cheep, as it rubbed its back legs together,
and you'd enjoy that magical sound as you transported
an intricately pierced and carved object like that about your palace.
Next, something that looks remarkably like a tea caddy,
but if I open it up, you'll see that inside it has
a series of compartments, each of which are divided for jewellery.
Intriguingly, inside the lid,
we have a slither of ivory that's painted with a port scene -
the Port of Whampoa.
Next, an equally impressive
and beautifully carved intricate piece, it's a fan.
Not literally a fan that you'd ever wave in front of your face
to cool down,
but a fan that is so elaborately carved and under-carved,
you've got a sort of layering of figures, dragons, concentric rings,
in incredible detail, the like of which fair takes your breath away.
And lastly, for something completely different.
What is effectively a very un-ornamented ivory carving
of a naked female.
Sometimes these things are called ivory doctors' models.
In order to preserve the modesty of the Chinese patient,
she wouldn't disrobe to expose herself to the doctor,
she simply be presented with a naked figure like this
and point to the place where it's hurting her.
Sweet, isn't it? I wonder if you can get those on the NHS?
The big question today is of course how much pain are our teams
likely to have to endure over at the auction?
Well, I have to say, it's marvellous to be back in Glasgow.
-It's lovely to have you back.
-Thank you for welcoming us
so beautifully to Great Western Auctions.
Now, we've got something of a silvery look for the Reds today.
First up, the claret jug.
Extremely rubbed nickel mounts, but I guess stylish.
It's a bit of a shame, but don't you just love this wonderful
angular handle and finial here?
-I think that's so stylish.
-All-round, it's a good-looking object.
-Bit like you, Anita! How much?
-40 to 60.
-Great. They paid £40.
Talking of stylish.
Here we've got a pair of slightly earlier trumpet-form vases.
They're very nice. We have a pair there
and apart from a little damage here,
-Just in that bottom...
-Which is a bit of a pity...
But the design and the decoration is appealing.
-60 to 80.
They paid 58, which is the right price to pay.
Lastly, we've got this slightly old-fashioned, some would say,
silver-mounted blotter, but my gosh,
what a good-looking thing it is.
We've got a lot of silver there.
It's in good condition and the little cherubs are very, very appealing.
I think that's a sweet item. I love it to bits.
And I can't believe that the cunning team only paid £45 for that.
-Doesn't that take your breath away?
-I would estimate it much higher.
-I've estimated it at 100 to 150.
-Have you really?
May be a wee bit high, but I think it deserves that.
I'm with you, I'm in the 100 to £150 league.
-Excellent. That's exciting, isn't it?
In case we're all wrong, they might need the bonus buy, so let's go and have a look at it.
Joan and Helen, darlings.
You spent £143, you gave Charles "Handsome" £157 of leftover lolly.
What did you spend it on, Charles?
Sometimes you dig really deep and you have to spend the entire amount.
-Down to the last pound. And I did that.
-I blew the whole lot.
I hope you like it.
-Look at that.
It's a combination of a Vesta case cum cigarette case.
It's silver gilt.
It's hallmarked for Birmingham 1919.
I did spend £157,
which is a fair sum to spend, but I do like it.
How much will it get at auction?
I think it's something which will either give us our money back
or it might make a bit,
or it might lose a bit. But I do feel it has a potential.
Following the torturous process of your description
is always interesting!
-Thank you very much for that.
-You don't have to decide now.
Take a punt on it once you've sold your first three items, but for the viewers,
let's find out what the auctioneer-ette thinks about Charles's combo box.
Well, this is rather intriguing, isn't it?
I mean, I've seen these combination cigarette cases and match whatnots before,
but nevertheless, it's a nice feature, isn't it?
Well, it's from the 1920s, 1930s.
The condition is good. I like it.
It's a nice item.
The only thing is cigarette cases are not doing quite as well
as they were before, but the silver price is high,
-the precious metal price is high.
-60 to 80.
I might have been a wee bit mean on that.
But even if you girded up your loins,
if you had any, you would not get to more than 100?
-The buyers will decide.
-They will decide. Enough of this loin talk.
I'll put that down and move on, very, very swiftly to the Blues.
First up, the trinket box.
It has to be said that Victorian boxes are amazing,
cos they come in all these qualities, don't they? How do you rate this one?
I quite like that. Mid range.
But it has this added interest of little ivory
and turquoise cabochons on it and I like that.
It's quite a nice wee box. Lots of detail.
-How much then, for a decorative midrange box?
-40 to 60.
-£37 paid, so that's a good chance.
Next, the Lea Stein brooches, which I don't pretend to understand,
except that they're very cleverly made.
Yes. Well, Lea Stein was a Parisienne.
Her husband was a chemist
and they developed this laminated cellulose material and made
these wonderful colourful brooches with an Art Deco look about them.
-They're very popular in today's market.
-80 to 120.
Well, they only paid £85,
so they've paid the right price for three of them.
I'm excited to see how you get on with them, actually.
In case we need a bit of something to warm our tummies en route,
we've got the brandy fellow down there.
That's a weird thing, isn't it?
Well, it's not an item of great quality
and the brandy glass is certainly not compatible with the holder.
-I think it might be brand-new.
-What do you think it will bring?
-20 to 30.
-Oh well, they might.
May or may not need their bonus buy, so let's go and have a look at it.
Now, Suzy, Cameron - you spent 147. You gave Paul 153.
-Paul, what did you buy?
-I didn't buy a chair(!)
We were looking for something designed, you were
looking for a decorative, designed object that is clearly functional.
A wrist compass.
-Is that for the wrist?
These were bought by the Wehrmacht for issue to Fallschirmjager -
-Oh, my goodness.
if I went shopping for such a piece, specialist seller,
scientific instruments, military...
I'd expect to pay 275, 285 for that.
Particularly with the Fallschirmjager association.
Out there in the wide old world, all day long,
it's going to be worth £50-£100.
-I paid 40.
-That's really good. Excellent.
-Very, very clever, Paul.
And congratulations on finding it. What will happen in the auction,
however, is a completely different matter.
But for the audience at home,
let's find out what the auctioneer's opinion is.
Well, here we go, Anita.
I don't pretend to understand it, but I do admire it
for its lump of alloy and the fact it's got all these bits and pieces.
They were issued to the German paratroopers who were the crack troops,
so they would only be issued with things of good quality.
They had to work.
It was made in Helsinki, so I really had just a guess at the estimate.
-What is the estimate?
-60 to 80.
I could be too cheap, or it could be too dear.
Well, who knows what direction to take, unless you've got your wrist compass on?
And very, very, very good luck, as they say.
-Hels, Joan, how are you feeling?
-Look how busy this place is.
First up, ladies, is the claret jug and here it comes.
Lot 139, ladies and gentlemen, is this fine Art Nouveau claret jug.
£100 for the claret jug. 50. £50.
£50. Start me at £30.
With the lady at 30. 40. 50.
-50 with the lady.
-You're in profit, girls.
50 with the lady. Are you sure? 55?
I'll take 55. 60. The lady at £60.
-All done at £60... £60...
-That's good, that's good. We're doing well. Good start.
-That is plus 20.
-Trumpet vases in plate.
This pair of vases, a very fine example of Art Nouveau design.
£50 surely, for the pair. At £50.
-Oh, come on.
£30, then. 40. 50.
50. With you, sir, at 50.
Oh, lots of bidders here.
60 with the lady, I'll come back to you - 60, 70,
80, 90, 100...
Look at this!
£100, with the lady at £100.
100. 110, fresh bidder.
110. Are you sure?
110. All done at 110.
That is £52.
So that means overall,
-you are plus 72.
-And one more to go.
It's an Edwardian, silver-mounted blotter.
Will you start me at 100?
£50, then. £50. 50 bid. 60.
With you, sir, at 60.
Any advance on 80?
All done at £80. £80...
-We did well.
This is plus £35.
Who's complaining about that?
You are £107 up...
-Are you having a nice time?
-Well, they are now!
-So, £107 up. That's pretty good, isn't it?
Listen, what are you going to do about the combination Vesta doo-dah?
-We do like it...
-I'm leaving it up to Helen.
-But we're going to bank it.
-You're going to bank it?
Bad luck, Charles.
But we're going to find out what it's worth,
cos we'll watch it being sold anyway. Here it comes.
Will you start me at £80, ladies and gentlemen?
Start me at £80.
80 bid. 80 bid.
Any advance on 80? 90.
100. Any advance on 100?
CHARLES: Keep going, sir. £140.
Not bad, Tim. Almost there.
150. Any advance on 150?
Almost out of jail, aren't I?
Any advance on 150? 160.
160, fresh bidder.
Any advance on 160? 160...
-£160. Well done, Charles.
Anyway, girls - you missed out on your three pounds.
It doesn't matter. You banked £107, which is brilliant.
Just don't tell the Blues a thing when you see them.
-Now, Suze, Cameron - how are you feeling?
-Are you nervous?
-Do you know how the Reds got on?
-Not at all.
Fine. Your first item is the box.
Here it comes.
A Victorian walnut sewing trinket box and I have three bids on this.
I can start the bidding at...
Such a tease!
Any advance on 20?
£60 on the book here.
70 on the floor.
80 on this bidding form here. 80.
90 on the floor and I'm out.
-This is just ridiculous.
-Any advance on £90?
That's £53 of profit. Plus £53!
You only paid £37!
This is crackers.
Now, look out - here comes the plastic brooches.
Three French brooches by Lea Stein,
that most popular of jewellery designers.
I can start the bidding at £60.
With me at 60. 70. 80. 80. 90. 100.
-We're in profit.
-100 with me.
The bid's with me at 100. 110.
On the floor, fresh bidder at 110. 120 with me. 130, I'm out.
It's 130 on the floor. 140.
150. 160. 160.
160 on the floor.
It's with you, sir.
Any advance on 160? All done at 160. 160...
160 is plus 75.
Do I believe that? I do.
£75. You're £128 up!
And some would say you've got the best item to come(!)
A Victorian silver-plated brandy warmer.
Start me at £20. 20 bid.
With you, sir, at 20.
-Oh, my goodness!
50. 50 with the gentleman.
Suze! What have you done here?
50 with the gentleman.
Any advance on £50?
Any advance on £50? £50...
£50, doubled your money, no trouble at all. Plus £25.
That is £153.
-£153 of profit.
That's more than we spent.
You spent 147 and you're going away with £153 in profits.
-How crackers is this?
You know how difficult it is to make a profit on this show?
You've literally doubled... Doubled your money. That's marvellous. OK.
Now what are you going to do about this compass?
-I said that I would let him take the lead on this.
-So it's on my head, so we'll do it.
Well, he's very determined, anyway. That's it then, decision made.
We're going with the bonus buy.
We're going with the German wrist compass and here it comes.
£50. 50 bid.
-You're in profit.
60. 70. 80.
£80. 90, fresh bidder.
£90, with you sir, at £90.
-Any advance on 90?
Any advance on £90?
All done at £90, £90...
£90. That is plus 50.
So that is £203
for you, chickens.
Like I say, give up the day job!
Take up something that's really profitable!
-No, seriously. That's wonderful.
-The thing is, don't spoil the Reds' day.
-Till we reveal all.
-Well, we've had a jolly time, haven't we?
Have you ever seen two teams look more pleased with themselves
than this lot?
-You haven't been chatting?
-Not comparing notes or anything like that?
-So you don't know how the scores go?
Well, it's an interesting one, I tell you.
Rarely, on Bargain Hunt, do we get both teams with massive profits.
Which is what we have here.
Both teams have got profits in three figures.
Profits in three figures, for both teams!
Also, I can reveal that each team gets the order of the Golden Gavel!
Cos they've all made a profit on each item that they sold.
-How rare is that on Bargain Hunt?
-Oh, thank you!
So each take one of those and pin it on with pride.
What's the end result?
Here we go.
There ain't much between 'em, but sadly, the runners-up today are...
CHARLES: I don't believe it!
Yes, you didn't go with the bonus buy, you didn't trust Carlos,
which is your loss, but it wouldn't have been enough to save your bacon.
-Because overall, you're plus £107...
-Well done, team.
..which is an amazing score,
so congratulations for that.
Lovely to go home with all that cash. You've been a great team.
Well done, Charles.
But the victors, Suzy and Cameron, you are going to take £203...
What about that?
All round, it's a completely flush-making victory for you
and I congratulate you. You've had a lovely time?
-It's been fantastic.
And a great experience for us, I have to say.
It just goes to show that this bargain-hunting lark does work.
-Join us soon, for some more bargain-hunting, yes?
