It's a rather chilly affair today,

0:00:050:00:07

but a touch of snow isn't going to stop us - oh, no,

0:00:070:00:10

there are still ample antiques here just ripe for the picking.

0:00:100:00:15

So grab your hot-water bottle, turn up the heat

0:00:150:00:18

and let's go Bargain Hunting. Yeah!

0:00:180:00:20

Today, we are limbering up in Lincoln,

0:00:470:00:50

about to take on the enormous antiques and collectors fair -

0:00:500:00:55

and, by jingo, just look at the size of it.

0:00:550:01:00

But first, let's see what's coming up.

0:01:000:01:03

Will it be a fairy-tale ending for the Reds?

0:01:030:01:05

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the reddest of them all?

0:01:050:01:09

-BOTH:

-We are!

0:01:090:01:11

Or will it be the Blue story that ends in glory?

0:01:110:01:13

Go on, that's it!

0:01:130:01:15

We have got a cracking show for you today.

0:01:170:01:21

For the Reds, we have got sisters Lisa and Lindsay,

0:01:210:01:24

and, for the Blues, we have Nathan and Jamie. Hello, everyone.

0:01:240:01:28

-ALL:

-Hello!

-Hi, lovely to see you.

0:01:280:01:30

-Now, Lisa, you are a vegetarian...

-I am.

0:01:300:01:32

..which is not unusual at all.

0:01:320:01:35

But what do you do as a living?

0:01:350:01:37

I actually work for a catering butcher.

0:01:370:01:39

How can you possibly do that?

0:01:410:01:43

It's fine - I just do the work and don't eat the profits.

0:01:430:01:47

I love it.

0:01:470:01:48

So when you are not working, what do you get up to in your spare time?

0:01:480:01:51

I do like to keep fit.

0:01:510:01:52

I like to do a bit of running in our local park

0:01:520:01:56

and also I train at a boxing gym.

0:01:560:01:58

-Do you?

-I do.

-Is that kick boxing?

0:01:580:02:01

-No, just normal boxing.

-Thump-you-in-the-face type stuff?

0:02:010:02:03

I wouldn't thump you in the face.

0:02:030:02:05

No, that's sweet of you(!) I'm keeping my distance, anyway.

0:02:050:02:08

No, brilliant. So, why did you take up boxing?

0:02:080:02:11

It's just boxing training -

0:02:110:02:12

it's not actually fighting against anybody else -

0:02:120:02:14

but it's really good for your fitness,

0:02:140:02:16

and also if you've had a bit of a stressful day.

0:02:160:02:18

-Go and get... Exactly.

-Just get it out of you.

0:02:180:02:20

So, when things aren't going so good in the commercial butchers,

0:02:200:02:23

-you go and take it out on a punchbag.

-Yes.

-Yeah.

0:02:230:02:26

So, Lindsay, what do you get up to in your spare time?

0:02:260:02:29

I love going to the theatre, going to concerts -

0:02:290:02:32

quite cultural, really.

0:02:320:02:34

Do you ever perform yourself?

0:02:340:02:36

Oh, no, no, Tim, I wouldn't dare.

0:02:360:02:38

-Why's that?

-I wouldn't want to upset anybody

0:02:390:02:42

with my voice or acting skills, to be honest.

0:02:420:02:45

Well, we'll put you through the mill today and see you how you get on.

0:02:450:02:48

-I am sure you will.

-Might start you off on a new career.

0:02:480:02:50

You two girls, what will you be buying today?

0:02:500:02:52

What are you going to keep your eye open for?

0:02:520:02:54

Probably something a bit more unusual and practical,

0:02:540:02:57

so, something that looks a bit quirky, a bit different,

0:02:570:02:59

but something that can be used, as well.

0:02:590:03:01

Are you going to spend all your cash?

0:03:010:03:03

-We'll try!

-I think we'll have a good go at it, definitely!

0:03:030:03:06

That's what I like the sound of. Good luck with that.

0:03:060:03:08

OK, chaps - Nathan, tell me, how did you first meet?

0:03:080:03:10

-What, me and Jamie?

-Yeah.

-When I first met him, I didn't like him.

0:03:100:03:13

-Did you not?

-No.

-Now I don't like HIM, to be fair!

0:03:130:03:16

No, we're... My boss put us together,

0:03:170:03:20

we're both nightclub door supervisors.

0:03:200:03:22

-Does that mean you are a bouncer?

-Aye.

-Yeah.

-Posh word for it.

0:03:220:03:25

"Nightclub door supervisor".

0:03:250:03:27

-And when we first met, you didn't shake my hand.

-I didn't.

0:03:280:03:31

And then our boss put us together.

0:03:310:03:32

-And we have been inseparable for four years.

-That is rather fun.

0:03:320:03:36

Are you still doing the door supervising job?

0:03:360:03:39

-We do it odd weekends.

-Bits and pieces.

-It's just pocket money now.

0:03:390:03:43

So what do you do full-time now?

0:03:430:03:45

-I'm a school bus driver.

-Oh, are you?

-Yeah.

0:03:450:03:47

Even worse than keeping people in order outside a nightclub,

0:03:470:03:50

-I would think.

-I have more arguments with kids on the bus

0:03:500:03:52

-than I do on the doors.

-I bet you do.

0:03:520:03:54

So, Jamie, you have an interesting job.

0:03:540:03:58

I am a security guard at a retailer, a large retailer.

0:03:580:04:02

I kind of thought I would go into a bit of different security,

0:04:020:04:05

obviously, than doors and stuff like that, but I play ice hockey...

0:04:050:04:08

I've played since I was about 11,

0:04:080:04:11

and I play for a team called Steel City Hawks now,

0:04:110:04:14

and they're a bunch of good guys.

0:04:140:04:17

And when you're not mucking about on the ice,

0:04:170:04:19

playing the ice hockey, you get up to some other chilly stuff,

0:04:190:04:22

-don't you?

-Strange things, yeah.

0:04:220:04:24

I actually run a paranormal team from Barnsley,

0:04:240:04:27

and we basically help people who have paranormal issues in the house.

0:04:270:04:31

They contact us and we go out on investigations

0:04:310:04:34

and help them as best we can.

0:04:340:04:36

I've only ever been once, and I got scared out of my life, didn't I?

0:04:360:04:39

-Yeah.

-I think I ended up going home early.

0:04:390:04:41

-This is ghosts and stuff like that?

-Yeah, ghosts, whatever.

0:04:410:04:43

Can you exorcise a spirit?

0:04:430:04:45

We've only ever had to do a cleansing on a house once

0:04:450:04:48

in, like, the last couple of years, but it's not like...

0:04:480:04:52

Usually we go in to debunk what's happening to that person

0:04:520:04:56

-and kind of explain...

-And help them?

-..a logical thing.

0:04:560:04:59

Got any ideas as to what you might be buying today, Nathan?

0:04:590:05:02

Well, what it is, erm...

0:05:020:05:04

my grandad, who recently just passed away,

0:05:040:05:07

he was big into his World War II memorabilia,

0:05:070:05:10

so that's the kind of thing I'll be looking out for today.

0:05:100:05:12

Just listening to old war stories,

0:05:120:05:14

it feels like you're back in the day with him,

0:05:140:05:16

so that's something I'll be looking out for.

0:05:160:05:18

-OK, you will take your expert's advice?

-Oh, yes.

-Yeah.

0:05:180:05:21

That's a very sensible thing.

0:05:210:05:23

OK, the money moment. £300 apiece - here comes your £300.

0:05:230:05:26

£300, girls and boys. You know the rules, your experts await,

0:05:260:05:30

and off you go! And very, very, very good luck.

0:05:300:05:33

Do you know something? I feel a ghostly moment coming on.

0:05:330:05:36

And, of course, our two tremendous teams need two exemplary experts.

0:05:380:05:43

Mark Stacey will be hoping to churn out a profit for the Reds.

0:05:430:05:47

But bear in mind,

0:05:480:05:49

Natasha Raskin will be hot on his heels with the Blues.

0:05:490:05:52

-You're a boxer?

-A little one.

0:05:540:05:57

-And you look like Liza Minnelli.

-I don't sing like her.

0:05:570:06:00

So, life is going to be a cabaret, isn't it?

0:06:000:06:02

I don't usually bring an entourage with me to Bargain Hunt

0:06:040:06:07

but here I am with a couple of heavies!

0:06:070:06:09

I think we should go for something a little bit unique, because we are.

0:06:090:06:14

-And...

-Sorry. Yeah, go on.

-I was going to say cheap and cheerful.

0:06:140:06:18

Cos we are!

0:06:180:06:20

-OK, teams, your time starts now.

-WHISTLE BLOWS

0:06:200:06:23

Ooh!

0:06:230:06:24

I have a funny feeling this is going to be a frantic hour.

0:06:280:06:30

It might be. The thing is, we might just be whipping round.

0:06:300:06:33

-Whipping round?

-A little bit of craziness and all that.

0:06:330:06:36

Well, looking at the weather,

0:06:360:06:37

the Blues have the best idea by keeping warm inside.

0:06:370:06:40

Cor, it's a chilly one today.

0:06:400:06:43

-I don't want any dilly-dallying around.

-We don't dilly-dally.

0:06:430:06:45

-I want decisiveness...

-Yes.

0:06:450:06:47

I want clear...

0:06:470:06:49

'Instructions?'

0:06:490:06:50

-What do I want?

-Choices.

-Choices, that's it.

0:06:500:06:53

So what is your taste, then?

0:06:540:06:56

I like brass.

0:06:560:06:57

Brass boys.

0:06:570:06:59

A couple of brass monkeys would be well-suited for today's weather.

0:06:590:07:02

Now then, what have the Reds found?

0:07:020:07:04

I do really like that bottle, that little perfume bottle there.

0:07:050:07:09

What have you found? Anything?

0:07:090:07:11

-We have found a couple of things.

-A couple of things.

-What?

0:07:110:07:14

-A little perfume bottle, there.

-A little scent bottle.

0:07:140:07:17

Yes, it's Continental. The top looks a bit dented.

0:07:170:07:21

-I thought that was the pattern.

-You thought that was the pattern?

0:07:210:07:23

Well, that is a good start to the morning, isn't it?

0:07:230:07:26

Excellent. Onwards, then, team.

0:07:260:07:29

Time to check in with the Blues - how are you doing, chaps?

0:07:290:07:32

-It's a lot harder when you're doing it, isn't it?

-It is.

0:07:320:07:35

I thought it would be just like a walk through the park.

0:07:350:07:38

OK, maybe we'll just leave them to it, then.

0:07:380:07:41

Meanwhile, the Reds are still at the same stall.

0:07:410:07:44

I think it might actually be horned.

0:07:450:07:48

Do you think it's horned?

0:07:480:07:49

-No, I think it's papier-mache, you know.

-You think so?

-Yes.

0:07:500:07:53

And what would it have been used for?

0:07:540:07:56

-I think this would have been a snuffbox.

-Snuffbox, yeah.

-OK.

0:07:560:07:58

Snuff is a form of powdered tobacco

0:07:580:08:00

which was very popular in the 17th and 18th centuries

0:08:000:08:04

and into the 19th century, and you took it like that.

0:08:040:08:07

-Snuffing up your nose.

-OK.

0:08:070:08:10

But it is old, it is late 19th century at least.

0:08:100:08:12

-So it's a hundred-and-odd years old...

-Oh, OK.

-Oh.

0:08:120:08:16

..and priced at 65, and I think at auction, it would make...

0:08:160:08:19

..around about the £40 to £60 mark.

0:08:210:08:24

-Oh.

-OK.

-So, we'd need to get it a little bit cheaper.

0:08:240:08:26

So, you would need to smile at the dealer,

0:08:260:08:29

who is actually desperate to sell things in this terribly bad weather.

0:08:290:08:33

-Would you like to know the best price on that?

-Best price, please.

0:08:330:08:36

65... I could do it for 50.

0:08:360:08:38

Well, it's edging in the right direction, isn't it?

0:08:390:08:42

-Could we get it a little bit lower?

-45.

0:08:420:08:44

That would be my best rate. It is gold-mounted,

0:08:440:08:47

-which makes it that bit more special.

-Oh!

0:08:470:08:50

-Look, my colleague here looks like Liza Minnelli.

-She does.

0:08:500:08:54

But she doesn't sing like her, so, if we don't get it for 40,

0:08:540:08:56

-I'll ask her to sing.

-I'll sing to you.

0:08:560:08:58

No, no, it's worth it for a song! Give us a song.

0:08:580:09:01

Sing us a song and it'll be yours for 40.

0:09:010:09:04

Well, there's a challenge - can you rise to it?

0:09:040:09:06

# Somewhere over the rainbow

0:09:060:09:09

# We could have this lovely little box. #

0:09:090:09:11

-You win.

-40 quid.

-40 quid.

-Happy?

0:09:110:09:15

£40 it is. Well done, and thank you so much for ending it so quickly.

0:09:150:09:20

Going for a song. Good work, girls. Five minutes in and one item down.

0:09:200:09:26

What is that?

0:09:260:09:28

I think it must be a gavel.

0:09:280:09:29

-It is a bit strange.

-It is, yeah.

0:09:310:09:33

I thought it was a peanut cracker.

0:09:330:09:35

Well, it may actually... Do you know what?

0:09:350:09:36

That will be exactly what it is, isn't it?

0:09:360:09:38

I think it's time you fellows needed to crack on, eh?

0:09:380:09:42

Any joy, Mark?

0:09:420:09:44

This is quite practical.

0:09:440:09:45

-Do you know what it is?

-No.

-No.

0:09:460:09:49

Put your hands on there.

0:09:490:09:51

-It is a loving cup. BOTH:

-Awww!

0:09:510:09:53

-Cheers.

-That is nice.

0:09:530:09:55

It's stoneware and it's 19th century, there are no marks on it,

0:09:550:09:59

there is a little indent there, but that's probably a potter's mark.

0:09:590:10:02

And it's modelled, typically, with these three greyhounds.

0:10:020:10:05

-I'm not sure if I like that.

-Really?

-Mmm.

0:10:050:10:08

-Do you like it?

-I quite like it.

0:10:080:10:11

Shall I just find out the best price for us to consider?

0:10:110:10:13

-Because that's quite reasonable.

-I think if we can get that cheap...

0:10:130:10:16

And if we can get that at a really good price...

0:10:160:10:18

-because it doesn't fit in with their other stuff.

-No, it doesn't.

0:10:180:10:21

-Shall I go and have a word with them while you carry on looking?

-That would be good, thank you.

0:10:210:10:25

Work your magic then, Mark.

0:10:250:10:28

-What's this?

-What's that? That is a thrasher.

0:10:280:10:31

-A what?

-A thrasher.

0:10:310:10:33

When you hold it up, it becomes, obviously, a jointed item,

0:10:330:10:36

and then when you spin it around, that leather joint swivels

0:10:360:10:40

around the shorter item, and then you thrash bales of wheat or something.

0:10:400:10:44

It has got a little bit of a woodworm issue at the top,

0:10:440:10:47

but...in fact, peppered throughout...

0:10:470:10:49

-Yeah.

-..but it doesn't scare me - it is quite a cool-looking thing.

0:10:490:10:53

But no brass, so I am disappointed.

0:10:530:10:55

We can't do nowt without brass, can we? Gutted, aren't we?

0:10:550:10:59

What are you thinking? You moving on from that?

0:10:590:11:01

-Walking on?

-Yeah, we'll have a walk.

0:11:010:11:02

The thrasher has been thrashed.

0:11:020:11:04

You haven't bought anything yet, so, at this rate,

0:11:040:11:07

-you'll get a good thrashing at auction.

-How long we got?

0:11:070:11:10

-Ladies...

-Uh-oh, Mark is back with the price.

0:11:100:11:13

It is priced at 35,

0:11:130:11:15

but the dealer said the very, very lowest she could do was £20.

0:11:150:11:20

But, while I was in there, I saw something in a cabinet.

0:11:220:11:25

And it is an articulated fish,

0:11:270:11:29

and it has been decorated with this sort of abalone shell

0:11:290:11:32

which is like a mother-of-pearl.

0:11:320:11:34

They slice the interior of the shell out to make these little patterns.

0:11:340:11:38

-It is £9.50.

-£9.50.

-I know.

0:11:380:11:41

What is it used for?

0:11:410:11:43

I think you'd have it in a little decorative bijouterie cabinet.

0:11:430:11:47

-Could it be a bottle-opener?

-No. No.

0:11:470:11:49

I'm thinking beer!

0:11:490:11:51

HE SIGHS

0:11:540:11:56

I'm wasted, honestly.

0:11:560:11:58

"Could it be a bottle-opener?"!

0:11:580:12:00

Listen, I'm not so sure, Mark. I think it might be a bottle-opener.

0:12:000:12:04

I love this.

0:12:040:12:05

I'm not sure she's going to give anything off for £9.50.

0:12:050:12:09

I can go and ask.

0:12:090:12:10

You could go and ask but she might do 50p or £1 or something.

0:12:100:12:14

-So, we'll say no to this?

-I'm not particularly keen on that.

0:12:140:12:17

If you're not keen on it, that's fine, cos we've already chosen mine.

0:12:170:12:20

-Do you like this?

-I...

0:12:200:12:22

Do you know what? I like this, I'm going to go and see what we can get.

0:12:220:12:25

-You go and see what you can get it for.

-All right, go on, then.

-OK.

0:12:250:12:28

-Get a bargain, Lindsay.

-I will.

0:12:280:12:30

-Bear with.

-Bear with?

-Bear with.

0:12:300:12:33

Hello!

0:12:330:12:34

Crikey, those girls are on fire.

0:12:340:12:36

Meanwhile, let's see if the Blues have found anything yet.

0:12:360:12:41

Hey, those boys have some class.

0:12:410:12:43

Ooh, and more brass, look.

0:12:430:12:45

Beautiful writing slope for travelling and for writing on your...

0:12:450:12:48

keeping up with your correspondence on your travels.

0:12:480:12:50

It's like something off Harry Potter.

0:12:500:12:52

Well, you know, it's got that sort of appeal,

0:12:520:12:54

but they tend to be awfully expensive

0:12:540:12:56

-and I don't know if they're a bit out of our price range.

-Yeah.

0:12:560:12:58

But a seriously good standout piece, isn't it?

0:12:580:13:01

Decorative as well as functional.

0:13:010:13:03

-Something you don't see every day.

-Exactly, exactly.

0:13:030:13:06

Now, any news in the Red camp?

0:13:060:13:09

-You've got a big smile on your face.

-How did you get on?

0:13:090:13:11

6.50.

0:13:110:13:13

-I hope you've bought it.

-I have bought it.

-£6.50.

0:13:130:13:15

-You didn't ask me if you could buy it.

-I've just done it.

0:13:150:13:18

You wanted no messing around, I didn't mess around.

0:13:180:13:22

-I really like this.

-You were decisive.

0:13:220:13:24

You know, you two red-hot Reds,

0:13:240:13:27

-you've got two items in ten minutes for a total spend of £46.50.

-Yeah.

0:13:270:13:33

-Now, isn't that cool?

-Yes, we're great.

-Yes, we're fast movers.

0:13:330:13:36

-You are, and you're very decisive.

-Yeah.

0:13:360:13:38

Let's go and find our third item.

0:13:380:13:40

-OK.

-Let's spend some more money.

0:13:400:13:42

Hey, I'm very impressed, girls,

0:13:420:13:43

but there is still an awful lot of cash burning a hole in your pocket.

0:13:430:13:48

Speaking of which, the boys still have all their money.

0:13:480:13:51

-What do you think of this?

-Eh?

-The ship's...

0:13:510:13:53

Oh, hello, have I spotted some brass?

0:13:530:13:57

So, you've struck on quite a good market, there,

0:13:570:13:59

because this is real boys-and-their-toys territory,

0:13:590:14:02

but if someone has a library or a study or somewhere,

0:14:020:14:05

-an area in which they can display it...

-It's a nice thing to have.

0:14:050:14:08

-Very nice to display. Would you have that on show?

-I would.

-Yeah.

0:14:080:14:10

-I think I would, actually.

-It goes with your brass thing as well.

-Yeah.

0:14:100:14:14

What's nice about it is it's sort of brass of two "halfs".

0:14:140:14:16

I know that sounds silly - or brass of two HALVES, even -

0:14:160:14:19

because you've got the clunky brass around the compass itself

0:14:190:14:23

bolting it in, making sure that it's protected from the storm

0:14:230:14:26

when you are on the ship,

0:14:260:14:27

but then you've got brass inlay in the wood,

0:14:270:14:30

it looks like mahogany, you've got brass inlay,

0:14:300:14:32

so that brass fits into an area that was cut out from the wood.

0:14:320:14:36

-I like that.

-I like that.

-It's got real appeal.

0:14:370:14:39

-Let's go with that one.

-Shall we go and find out how much it's worth?

0:14:390:14:42

-Yeah, find out how much it is.

-Yes.

0:14:420:14:44

Our lovely stallholder is here, and perhaps you can do the asking?

0:14:440:14:48

-Hello.

-What has caught your eye?

0:14:480:14:50

Your compass - we're interested.

0:14:500:14:52

-Beautiful, isn't it?

-Big question - how much?

0:14:520:14:55

It's only £110.

0:14:550:14:56

Right, OK, we knew it would be three figures but we weren't sure how much.

0:14:560:15:01

Would you take £80?

0:15:010:15:02

Come on, it's going to auction.

0:15:030:15:05

-Yeah.

-Oh!

-Is that a deal?

0:15:060:15:09

Well, that was fairly easy, chaps - some good haggling skills

0:15:090:15:13

and it's some brass, just what you wanted.

0:15:130:15:16

-Right, so we'll go in the warm, shall we?

-Yes, please.

-Definitely.

0:15:180:15:21

So, the girls have decided to come in from the cold,

0:15:210:15:23

and we will have a time check, please, Mark.

0:15:230:15:26

You are doing really well -

0:15:260:15:27

you've only used up 25 minutes of the hour, so you've got 35 minutes left.

0:15:270:15:32

-This is a danger zone...

-OK.

-..because you are confident now,

0:15:320:15:35

you've got two items, you haven't spent too much

0:15:350:15:37

but if we are not careful, we can miss that third item,

0:15:370:15:40

-and we don't want to do that, do we?

-No.

-No.

0:15:400:15:42

-So let's concentrate.

-OK.

0:15:420:15:43

Very true, Mark.

0:15:430:15:45

We've seen it many times on this show - teams get too confident

0:15:450:15:48

and the next thing is, it's down to the wire, so watch this space.

0:15:480:15:53

Now, listen up, and check out my little pleasant pheasant.

0:15:530:15:57

This is rather lovely, isn't it?

0:15:570:16:00

If you could hold it, you'd be amazed

0:16:000:16:02

how heavy a solid silver-cast little object like this is.

0:16:020:16:06

I guess it weighs at least 15-17 ounces.

0:16:060:16:11

It is like an ingot of silver.

0:16:110:16:13

But the silversmith who crafted this in Birmingham in 1926

0:16:130:16:18

really did know his stuff.

0:16:180:16:20

Look carefully, and we have got an arrangement of feathers

0:16:200:16:24

which looks naturalistic,

0:16:240:16:26

and when you add up that each one of those

0:16:260:16:29

has to be carefully scratched and honed

0:16:290:16:33

so that it looks this realistic,

0:16:330:16:35

you get an impression as to exactly how much work

0:16:350:16:38

has gone into producing it.

0:16:380:16:41

It was made in Birmingham in 1926 -

0:16:410:16:43

you can tell that because there is a little hallmark

0:16:430:16:47

stamped under its tail.

0:16:470:16:49

And one of the tips to tell whether it has been filled with a base metal

0:16:490:16:53

to artificially increase its weight, is to look inside that little hole.

0:16:530:16:58

It is hollow,

0:16:580:16:59

meaning there is nothing inserted into it to make it heavier,

0:16:590:17:03

it is as heavy as the weight of silver itself.

0:17:030:17:07

What's it worth?

0:17:070:17:08

Well, if you are lucky and you find one in a place like this,

0:17:080:17:12

priced up at between £300 and £400, that is about right.

0:17:120:17:17

Because were you to melt it down,

0:17:170:17:19

I guess there could be as much as £300 worth of silver in it.

0:17:190:17:24

And therefore, you are not paying much for all that craftsmanship.

0:17:240:17:28

Also, the real ones, when plucked, are good to eat.

0:17:280:17:33

I like those ladders.

0:17:340:17:35

We can always have a proper...

0:17:360:17:38

Now, how are those plucky Reds getting on?

0:17:380:17:40

With two items in the bag, they seem to be in cruise control.

0:17:400:17:44

The Blues, however, still only have their one item -

0:17:440:17:47

and 20 minutes are left, teams.

0:17:470:17:49

Suits you, makes you look innocent.

0:17:500:17:53

Yes, but we know better.

0:17:530:17:54

Cumbersome.

0:17:560:17:58

Croquet.

0:17:580:17:59

Are tools what you're into? Is that something that you would like..?

0:17:590:18:02

-I like me tools.

-I see 'em too many times - my missus is a joiner.

0:18:020:18:05

-Your missus is a joiner?

-Yes, she is.

-She's got the right idea.

0:18:050:18:09

Oh, is there trouble brewing over with the Reds?

0:18:120:18:15

They're not big enough, not wow enough.

0:18:150:18:17

-It's got to be wow.

-OK, wow.

-We want something a bit more wow.

0:18:170:18:19

How about the two-seater chair?

0:18:190:18:21

-That is a nice chair.

-That's beautiful.

-That is nice.

0:18:210:18:23

I think that would probably be out of our price range a little bit.

0:18:230:18:27

They are little snuff bottles.

0:18:290:18:31

So, whilst the West tend to have snuffboxes,

0:18:310:18:35

in the Far East, they tend to be snuff bottles

0:18:350:18:37

so they have got the little dipper inside to take out the snuff,

0:18:370:18:41

whereas we would open up a box.

0:18:410:18:43

It is quite nice, isn't it? What is your price on the four?

0:18:430:18:46

-You can have the four for 120.

-£120.

0:18:460:18:49

I don't think the guys expected to be looking at tiny wee...

0:18:490:18:52

OK, you can have them for 70.

0:18:520:18:54

That is a bargain, because they cost a lot more than that.

0:18:540:18:58

So, you're looking for cracks in the condition.

0:18:580:19:01

They're very finely worked.

0:19:010:19:02

They are popular.

0:19:020:19:04

I think that we have got a damaged one here,

0:19:040:19:06

so we would probably want to steer clear of that.

0:19:060:19:08

Maybe two together would be a nice little pair.

0:19:080:19:12

-OK.

-That has got a bit of damage on it.

0:19:120:19:13

So that's got a bit of damage, I think we can count that one out

0:19:130:19:16

-if it's got damage.

-So it's only these two

0:19:160:19:18

that's actually in good condition.

0:19:180:19:19

If you open them up, do they both have their stoppers in there

0:19:190:19:22

and their little dippers?

0:19:220:19:23

And we do - so, shall we ask about two?

0:19:230:19:25

-Yeah, two.

-We can ask for two,

0:19:250:19:26

because it's better in a pair than it is on its own.

0:19:260:19:29

I'm just going to say the stupidest thing -

0:19:290:19:31

they have got a little bit of brass on them,

0:19:310:19:33

so there has to be an omen there somewhere!

0:19:330:19:35

Barnsley brass, I'm telling you.

0:19:350:19:37

What do we think? So, for two of them, what do you think?

0:19:370:19:39

You can have them for £50.

0:19:390:19:40

-£50.

-I can probably do 45.

-35 and we'll shake your hand.

0:19:400:19:44

-Go on, then, 35.

-35, we'll have them.

0:19:440:19:47

Well, that was some exceptional haggling there, boys.

0:19:470:19:50

Very proud of you.

0:19:500:19:52

We're now dilly-dallying, aren't we?

0:19:520:19:54

-We are dilly-dallying.

-And you said you wouldn't dilly-dally.

0:19:540:19:57

We're not a dilly-dallying pair.

0:19:570:19:58

Oh, girls, and you started off so well!

0:19:580:20:01

OK, Blues, whatever you do, don't panic!

0:20:030:20:06

-We're panicking now!

-Yeah, we're starting to panic a little bit.

0:20:060:20:09

We've only got ten minutes left and we've only got two items.

0:20:090:20:12

Oh, dear.

0:20:120:20:14

Right, Reds, I don't like to say "I told you so",

0:20:140:20:17

but you still have that elusive item to find.

0:20:170:20:21

You've done 40 minutes of flapping

0:20:210:20:23

and now you have less than ten minutes left.

0:20:230:20:25

Now, I adore this potter.

0:20:250:20:29

-It's a Devon potter based in Barnstaple.

-OK.

0:20:290:20:33

And his name is Charles Brannam,

0:20:330:20:36

and he's right up there with those potters from the Art Nouveau period.

0:20:360:20:41

-OK.

-I mean, this particular vase

0:20:410:20:43

is very much that Art Nouveau, organic form.

0:20:430:20:46

This one's priced at - oh, gosh, £225.

0:20:460:20:51

-OK.

-We did say we wanted to spend a bit of money.

0:20:510:20:54

-We do want to spend some money.

-But do you actually like it?

0:20:540:20:57

Really like it, yeah.

0:20:570:20:59

My honest opinion on it is,

0:20:590:21:00

if that came into a saleroom that I worked at,

0:21:000:21:03

then I would certainly put 100-150 on it.

0:21:030:21:05

There won't be much else in the auction like it.

0:21:050:21:08

It is a gamble, though.

0:21:080:21:10

Have the boys made a decision yet?

0:21:100:21:12

And what have they done with Natasha?

0:21:120:21:14

Kind of panicking at this point.

0:21:140:21:15

Are we going to go for something ridiculously big?

0:21:150:21:17

I'm sorry to have abandoned you, there,

0:21:170:21:19

but I went off because we're running out of time.

0:21:190:21:21

I've found a wee thing... You'll probably hate it.

0:21:210:21:23

I know you'll hate it. It's a wee piggy pincushion.

0:21:230:21:26

It's absolutely hilarious. It's quite nice, actually.

0:21:260:21:28

It's got a bit of a scar on its cheek,

0:21:280:21:30

but as you rub it, it comes off.

0:21:300:21:31

So, it can be cleaned. It's a kind of hollow gauge of metal -

0:21:310:21:34

it's not a fine metal, it's a white metal, whatever it is.

0:21:340:21:36

-It's a pincushion.

-LAUGHTER

0:21:360:21:39

It does have novelty appeal.

0:21:390:21:40

And I think an auction estimate will be something like 20-40

0:21:400:21:43

and the gentleman's got £30 on it.

0:21:430:21:45

If we can get 20 on it, I think that'll be all right.

0:21:450:21:47

We've only got two minutes left, so it's either that or nothing.

0:21:470:21:50

Second question is, do you want to lead the negotiations?

0:21:500:21:52

-I'll go and try and get £20 on it, I think...

-Go negotiate, then.

0:21:520:21:56

-..or we'll have to pay.

-Take this piggy to market!

0:21:560:21:59

Oh, boys, you look thrilled(!)

0:21:590:22:01

But unfortunately, you don't have much of a choice.

0:22:010:22:04

Could I just speak to you about this?

0:22:040:22:06

We really like this Charles Brannam vase.

0:22:060:22:08

You've got 225 on it...could you do anything on that?

0:22:080:22:13

The very best would be £190.

0:22:130:22:16

-190.

-That is the very best.

0:22:160:22:18

It is distinctive, it's going to catch people's eye.

0:22:180:22:21

It's going to get the attention of people.

0:22:210:22:23

-I like it.

-Yeah.

-Shall we go for it?

-Happy with that?

-Yeah.

0:22:230:22:26

-Let's got for it.

-We'll shake.

0:22:260:22:28

Well done, girls, I'm very impressed.

0:22:280:22:29

A very mature amount of money well spent, I'd say.

0:22:290:22:32

Done and dusted - three items in the bag, and all in the nick of time.

0:22:320:22:36

-How did you get on?

-He wouldn't drop!

0:22:360:22:39

Oh, not even with your silver, slithery tongue.

0:22:390:22:41

Not even with my smooth tongue!

0:22:410:22:43

No, he wouldn't drop, so it's either £30 or put it back.

0:22:430:22:46

-OK, personally, I think...

-We get the pins.

-We get the pins!

0:22:460:22:48

-We get the pins.

-Personally, I think it's got a bit of a shot

0:22:480:22:51

because it's a real collector's item.

0:22:510:22:53

If it's a novelty piece, we'll go for it, shall we? Gamble?

0:22:530:22:56

-Yeah.

-There's either a tenner loss in there or a tenner profit.

0:22:560:22:59

-It could go either way.

-No problem, we'll go for it.

-Are you sure?

0:22:590:23:02

-Yeah.

-Oh, yay!

0:23:020:23:03

Oh, GAMMon, chaps, don't be too disGRUNTled, eh?!

0:23:030:23:06

Who writes this stuff?!

0:23:060:23:08

OK, teams, your TIMES up!

0:23:080:23:11

-We've done it!

-Yay!

0:23:120:23:14

-And you've found your big, bold, quirky item.

-Yes, we've done it.

0:23:140:23:18

-Now, who's making the tea?

-You are!

0:23:180:23:21

Let's check out what the Red Team bought, eh?

0:23:230:23:25

"Times" up, that's clever!

0:23:250:23:27

First up was the papier-mache snuffbox. They paid £40.

0:23:270:23:31

And I can confirm that this is indeed

0:23:310:23:34

a fish bottle-opener,

0:23:340:23:36

bought for the bargain price of £6.50.

0:23:360:23:39

And finally, the pottery vase set them back £190.

0:23:390:23:43

Wow.

0:23:430:23:45

Well, at least you're smiling.

0:23:450:23:47

-We are, yeah.

-Was it good fun?

-It was great fun, really good laugh.

0:23:470:23:51

A whole hour with Mark Stacey is bound to be a jape, isn't it?

0:23:510:23:54

Which is your favourite piece?

0:23:540:23:56

I think my favourite piece is definitely the vase.

0:23:560:23:59

-What about you, Lindsay, you agree?

-Yeah, the vase.

0:23:590:24:02

Lovely. These sisters are welded together, you know. That's perfect.

0:24:020:24:05

And which is going to bring the biggest profit?

0:24:050:24:07

Erm, maybe the snuffbox, actually.

0:24:070:24:09

I think the snuffbox, cos we made a good discount on that, as well.

0:24:090:24:13

-We did, yeah.

-And how much did you spend in total?

0:24:130:24:15

We spent £236.50.

0:24:150:24:17

That is a thoroughly mature amount of money.

0:24:170:24:20

-It's a good amount of money.

-So, can I have £63.50?

-You do want £63.50.

0:24:200:24:23

£63.50 is what I'd like and £63.50 is what I've got... Lovely nails.

0:24:230:24:28

Moving over to Mark. £63.50, old fruit.

0:24:280:24:32

What's your plan, then, old boy?

0:24:320:24:34

-Well, we had a big love-in, didn't we?

-Yes!

0:24:340:24:37

-So, I think I'll go for something we all love.

-Yes, that would be nice.

0:24:370:24:40

That's quite enigmatic. Anyway, well done, Mark, good luck with that.

0:24:400:24:43

Meanwhile, why don't we check out what the Blue Team bought, eh?

0:24:430:24:47

Their first item was the ship's compass. They paid £80.

0:24:470:24:52

Next up, they paid £35 for the pair of Chinese snuff bottles.

0:24:520:24:58

And, finally, they're hoping the pincushion

0:24:580:25:00

will bring home the bacon at the auction. £30 paid.

0:25:000:25:04

-Well, chaps, how was it for you?

-An experience!

0:25:060:25:10

-So, which is your favourite piece?

-Erm, I must admit, the compass.

0:25:100:25:14

I like the Chinese snuff bottles that we bought.

0:25:140:25:17

Are they going to bring the biggest profit?

0:25:170:25:20

No, I think the pig's going to make the biggest profit,

0:25:200:25:23

-just because we haven't picked it!

-LAUGHTER

0:25:230:25:26

-And how much did you spend all round?

-145.

-Is that all?

0:25:260:25:29

155, please, of leftover lolly.

0:25:290:25:31

-There you go.

-Goes to Natty.

0:25:310:25:33

-Well, what are you going to do with that?

-I don't have a clue!

0:25:330:25:37

They were so relaxed at the beginning and so stressed out at the end,

0:25:370:25:40

I'm going to have a very relaxed meander

0:25:400:25:42

and see if I can find something that you'll like.

0:25:420:25:45

I bet you'll come up with something hot. Anyway, good luck with that!

0:25:450:25:48

Meanwhile, we're about to stagger off to the auction.

0:25:480:25:50

Well, how lovely is this?

0:25:580:26:01

Caroline Hawley at Hawleys Auctions on Beverley Racecourse.

0:26:010:26:05

-A treat!

-Welcome, Tim!

0:26:050:26:08

Lovely to have you.

0:26:080:26:10

Great to be in the East Riding.

0:26:100:26:12

Now, for the Reds, their first item is this little snuffbox,

0:26:120:26:15

which apparently has gold mounts - but they're not marked, are they?

0:26:150:26:19

No, they're not marked, but I would think they are gold.

0:26:190:26:23

Mid 19th century papier-mache, nice decoration to it,

0:26:230:26:27

and I would think that is gold mount.

0:26:270:26:30

There's no inscription, no initials on it.

0:26:300:26:34

It's a nice thing.

0:26:340:26:36

-And, consequently, I put £30-50 on it.

-You're a brave girl, aren't you?

0:26:360:26:41

-Mmm.

-£40 they paid.

-Oh, right, OK!

0:26:410:26:43

So, hopefully they stand to make a little bit of profit.

0:26:430:26:47

-Now, this next articulated abalone-shell fish thing.

-Yes.

0:26:470:26:51

Is it a beer bottle-opener? It's not a bottle-opener, is it?

0:26:510:26:54

Well, I've done a bit of research on this abalone fish,

0:26:540:26:57

but I think it could well be a bottle-opener.

0:26:570:26:59

If you have a look in its mouth, the hook thing,

0:26:590:27:02

it's not going to take any sturdy top off,

0:27:020:27:05

-but I think it just might just do the odd...

-Tweak.

-Tweak.

0:27:050:27:09

-Yes, what's your estimate?

-30-50.

0:27:090:27:12

-Good Lord, they're going to love you! £6.50 they paid.

-Really?!

0:27:120:27:16

-Well, I based that estimate on others that I'd seen sold.

-Really?

0:27:160:27:20

But the object they'd taken a punt with is the Brannam pot.

0:27:200:27:25

I put it down as 80-120,

0:27:250:27:28

but I'm hopeful that it's going to get quite a bit more.

0:27:280:27:32

-How much more?

-Erm, how much does it need to be? I...

0:27:320:27:36

£190, that's what it needs to be.

0:27:360:27:39

Yeah, that's a bold purchase.

0:27:390:27:41

Bold, lovely. Bold talk.

0:27:410:27:44

In case it all goes wrong, though, let's have a look at the bonus buy.

0:27:440:27:47

-Now, Lindsay, Lisa, how are you feeling?

-Good, thank you.

0:27:490:27:52

-Feeling nervous?

-No.

-Not at all?

-No.

0:27:520:27:55

You spent £236.50 - that doesn't faze you at all?

0:27:550:27:58

-No.

-Perfect.

0:27:580:28:00

£63.50's worth of leftover lolly you trusted to your man -

0:28:000:28:04

what did your man buy?

0:28:040:28:06

Well, something you've seen before, I think.

0:28:060:28:08

LAUGHTER

0:28:080:28:10

-That's a surprise(!)

-Because I really liked it.

0:28:100:28:13

I like these, sort of, dogs.

0:28:130:28:15

These whippets or greyhounds, or whatever they were.

0:28:150:28:18

And for £20, I couldn't really resist it.

0:28:180:28:21

I'm not particularly keen on the colour, I think it's quite bland.

0:28:210:28:24

Yeah, brown. Yeah, dull.

0:28:240:28:28

We're not really beige people.

0:28:280:28:29

-No. Other than that, you think it's quite nice.

-It's fine, it's perfect.

0:28:290:28:33

We love it!

0:28:330:28:34

I'm getting the message here - it's not number one fave, is it?

0:28:340:28:37

But are you going to trust your man with this?

0:28:370:28:40

How much do you think we'll get for it?

0:28:400:28:42

Look, we're in a country type area. I mean, it's a big one of its type,

0:28:420:28:46

and it's got to make £30-40, hasn't it?

0:28:460:28:49

On that happy note, you pick later,

0:28:490:28:51

because right now, for the audience at home,

0:28:510:28:54

let's find out what the auctioneer thinks about Mark's little tyg.

0:28:540:28:57

-There you go, Caroline.

-Thank you.

0:28:580:29:01

-Something for you to sup from.

-Thank you. There's quite a lot to sup from

0:29:010:29:04

-in there, isn't there?

-You think it's a nice thing?

0:29:040:29:06

I think it's gorgeous - but I really do like these things.

0:29:060:29:09

This lovely, moulded design, all the way around, different in each panel.

0:29:090:29:13

And these lovely dog handles.

0:29:130:29:15

It's in really good condition,

0:29:150:29:17

perfect condition!

0:29:170:29:18

How much would you pay for it?

0:29:180:29:20

Well, I can be a bit spendthrift at times - I might pay a lot for it.

0:29:200:29:23

-What's your estimate?

-I'm estimating it at £20-30.

0:29:230:29:27

-OK, well, that genius, Mark Stacey, only paid £20 for it.

-Brilliant!

0:29:270:29:30

-Which I think is the right price.

-Yeah.

-It should make a profit.

-Yeah.

0:29:300:29:34

Anyway, that's it for the Reds - now for the Blues.

0:29:340:29:37

Now, what a mixed bag we've got over here.

0:29:370:29:40

Now, for a kick-off, is this novelty compass.

0:29:400:29:45

-It's made to be a decorative item, really.

-Isn't it?

0:29:460:29:49

-It's sort of on a pseudo gimbal mount...

-Mm.

0:29:490:29:52

..and it's got this brass inlaid mahogany mount.

0:29:520:29:56

-So, it's very much "much ado about not a lot", sadly.

-Exactly.

0:29:560:30:00

You know, we get an awful lot of nautical things here

0:30:000:30:03

-that get an awfully...lot of money.

-Yes.

0:30:030:30:06

-This one isn't going to get much money.

-No.

0:30:060:30:08

But I'm sure they haven't paid a lot for it.

0:30:080:30:11

-Well, they paid £80, actually.

-Right.

0:30:110:30:13

Which is not a lot for a great, big chunk of brass like that

0:30:130:30:16

with a compass thumped in.

0:30:160:30:17

It isn't at all.

0:30:170:30:18

-So, how much do you think for that?

-£60-80 I put.

0:30:180:30:21

So, that's close enough to the £80 - they may get away with it.

0:30:210:30:24

-I hope so.

-I hope so, too.

0:30:240:30:26

The same applies

0:30:260:30:27

-with these so-called cinnabar lacquer snuffboxes.

-Yeah.

0:30:270:30:31

-They're made of composition, aren't they?

-Yes, they are.

0:30:310:30:34

They're purporting to be cinnabar lacquer, but sadly they're not,

0:30:340:30:37

they're resin and plastic.

0:30:370:30:39

And the thing is that the Chinese collectors,

0:30:390:30:43

they will pay thousands of pounds for the genuine cinnabar lacquer.

0:30:430:30:47

As they're not, I've only put £10-20 on them.

0:30:470:30:50

And you're right, the team paid £35,

0:30:500:30:52

so I think they have paid a bit too much.

0:30:520:30:55

Now, this little piggy on the far side is coming to market.

0:30:550:30:59

Yes, he is!

0:30:590:31:00

We used to have a cattle market in Beverley, but this little piggy,

0:31:000:31:03

I rather like him.

0:31:030:31:05

He's just in base metal,

0:31:050:31:06

and he comes along with these three little hat pins,

0:31:060:31:09

but I think he's great!

0:31:090:31:11

Yeah, so, what's your estimate for this little piggy?

0:31:110:31:13

I've put a very conservative £10-20 on him.

0:31:130:31:17

Mark you, in silver, they're a couple of hundred pounds,

0:31:170:31:19

-in this base metal...

-Yeah.

0:31:190:31:21

Will it bring £30? Cos that's what the team paid, £30.

0:31:210:31:24

And they need it because they're not going to make a lot, I don't think,

0:31:240:31:28

-on the modern compass.

-No.

-And I don't think they're going to make

0:31:280:31:31

-anything on the cinnabar.

-No, so, a lot's resting on the piggy!

0:31:310:31:35

-That or the bonus buy.

-Right.

0:31:350:31:37

And thinking about that, why don't we go and have a look at it?

0:31:370:31:41

OK, chaps, you spent £145 and you gave Natasha £155.

0:31:410:31:46

So, Natasha, show us what you spent £155 on.

0:31:460:31:50

I think I detect a hint of sarcasm from Tim, there.

0:31:500:31:53

I spent £15 on this brass planter for you.

0:31:530:31:58

Now...don't look so excited(!)

0:31:580:32:01

Let me tell you why.

0:32:010:32:03

Don't you remember how obsessed you were with Barnsley brass...

0:32:030:32:06

-Barnsley brass, aye.

-..and brass, brass, brass?

0:32:060:32:08

And I thought, I don't really know Barnsley brass very well,

0:32:080:32:11

but it made me think of industrial items,

0:32:110:32:13

and I thought, "Let's show Nathan how beautiful brass can be."

0:32:130:32:16

So, this is a sort of Mamluk revival, early 20th century,

0:32:160:32:21

Cairo-ware, Ottoman style planter.

0:32:210:32:24

-Quite a heavy gauge of brass...

-It is heavy, isn't it?

0:32:240:32:26

..and a very nice style.

0:32:260:32:28

And surely we're going to get a number of hands going up for this.

0:32:280:32:31

-I think it'll be all go for this planter.

-How much did you pay for it?

0:32:310:32:34

-15 - that's nothing!

-How much do you think it'll make?

0:32:340:32:37

I reckon a good £20, £30, £40,

0:32:370:32:39

so not a huge profit in it, but something, for sure.

0:32:390:32:42

You can't get that for less than £15 at auction these days.

0:32:420:32:45

Well, everything we've bought is brass, near enough,

0:32:450:32:48

so we might as well have this, and all.

0:32:480:32:50

Anyway, let's find out, for the audience at home,

0:32:500:32:52

whether the auctioneer finds it equally as impressive.

0:32:520:32:55

There we go - no Victorian front room

0:32:550:32:58

was without the aspidistra stand.

0:32:580:33:01

No, absolutely not.

0:33:010:33:02

There is no aspidistra in it, at the moment.

0:33:020:33:06

I think this is great - there's lots going on.

0:33:060:33:08

Brass and copper aren't terribly fashionable at the moment

0:33:080:33:12

because, I think, basically, people can't be bothered to polish things,

0:33:120:33:15

but this does look great, and I've put £20-40.

0:33:150:33:19

-Have you really?

-Yes, I have.

0:33:190:33:20

OK, well, Natasha really rates it.

0:33:200:33:22

It's her bonus buy - she spent £15 on it.

0:33:220:33:25

-Right, so, there's hopefully a profit in that.

-Exactly!

0:33:250:33:29

-With your skills on the rostrum, all will be well, won't it?

-Yes!

0:33:290:33:33

Yes.

0:33:330:33:34

OK, Caroline, it's time to prove your point and take to your rostrum.

0:33:340:33:39

So, when's the last time you went to an auction?

0:33:410:33:44

-Erm, this is my first one.

-Is it?

0:33:440:33:46

-It is.

-What about your sister?

-Yeah, it's my first one, too.

0:33:460:33:50

This is amazing!

0:33:500:33:51

Of course, Mark, you've been to an auction before, haven't you?

0:33:510:33:54

-Once or twice.

-Just as well.

0:33:540:33:56

Anyway, first up is going to be the papier-mache snuffbox -

0:33:560:34:00

and here it comes.

0:34:000:34:01

What's this worth? It's a gorgeous thing! £30?

0:34:010:34:05

20 to go?

0:34:050:34:08

Thank you, Rosie, very wise.

0:34:080:34:11

£20, 22 anywhere? 22, 24, 26, 28,

0:34:110:34:15

30, 32, 34, 36, 38,

0:34:150:34:19

40, 42, 44, 46...

0:34:190:34:22

Well done, you're in profit.

0:34:220:34:24

48, 50, 55, 60, 65,

0:34:240:34:27

70, 75, no? Sure?

0:34:270:34:30

£70 over there...

0:34:300:34:32

75 on the net.

0:34:320:34:34

80, 85...

0:34:340:34:36

80 in the back of the room.

0:34:360:34:39

-85 on the net. 90, sir.

-You've doubled your money.

0:34:390:34:42

95, 100, 110,

0:34:420:34:46

120, 130...

0:34:460:34:49

£120 in the room. 130 anywhere?

0:34:500:34:55

130, 140. Are you out, sir?

0:34:550:34:58

Are you sure? 130 on the internet - all done at £130.

0:34:580:35:05

-That's amazing!

-£130, you just made £90!

0:35:050:35:09

£90. Whoever would have thought that?

0:35:090:35:12

Not us.

0:35:120:35:14

Plus 90. Hang on, here comes your bottle-opener.

0:35:140:35:17

-What's this worth? 20 to start.

-Fishy business, this!

0:35:170:35:21

All over! 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30,

0:35:210:35:25

32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42...

0:35:250:35:28

Hey, girls, you paid 6.50.

0:35:280:35:31

..44, sir. Come along, one more, 44, are you sure?

0:35:310:35:36

Ask the wife. No? 42 with you, sir.

0:35:360:35:39

-All done at 42.

-£42!

-That's amazing!

0:35:390:35:43

£42. This is getting ridiculous, girls.

0:35:430:35:46

What's going to happen to your Brannam Pottery pot?

0:35:460:35:49

161 is this rather lovely Brannam Pottery vase.

0:35:490:35:53

Start me at £190.

0:35:530:35:54

Hang on, £190.

0:35:540:35:56

-80 to go, £80, anywhere?

-Terrible, isn't it?

-Oh, no!

0:35:560:36:01

£50, thank you. You both came in together. I'll take yours, John, 50.

0:36:010:36:05

55, Gary. 60, 65...

0:36:050:36:10

70, he's saying no.

0:36:100:36:12

65 to Gary, 70 anywhere?

0:36:120:36:16

70 new bidder, 75 anywhere? Oh, 75, 80...

0:36:160:36:21

I can't bear it!

0:36:210:36:23

-85, 90...

-Go on!

0:36:230:36:26

..95, 100, 110 anywhere?

0:36:260:36:30

Now it's you that's not playing, £100, on the right.

0:36:300:36:33

£100 - all done at 100.

0:36:330:36:36

Sisters!

0:36:360:36:39

This is sisterhood. That's minus £90, but you had £125 before,

0:36:390:36:44

so you're still £35.50 up.

0:36:440:36:49

What are you going to do about the tyg?

0:36:490:36:51

-Just do it.

-I think we should go for it.

-Let's just do it.

0:36:510:36:53

You are so hot, you two.

0:36:530:36:54

-Are you going to do it?

-Yes, just do it, we'll go for it, go for it.

0:36:540:36:58

Start me £20 for the tyg. Thank you, James.

0:36:580:37:02

£20 on the internet, 22 anywhere? Thank you, Anna, 22, 24?

0:37:020:37:07

You're in profit, that's a relief.

0:37:070:37:10

22 in the room, 24, 24, 26,

0:37:100:37:13

28, 30, 32, no? Are we sure?

0:37:130:37:19

-Did I say it might make £10?

-You did. You're right there, Tim.

0:37:190:37:22

Profit.

0:37:220:37:23

34...36, no?

0:37:230:37:27

34. We're in at 34.

0:37:270:37:30

All done at 34.

0:37:300:37:32

34 is plus 14.

0:37:320:37:34

Well done, Mark Stacey.

0:37:340:37:36

£49.50. You took a punt, the punt didn't work, but everything else

0:37:360:37:40

-made up for it, which is really cool.

-Yeah.

-It certainly did.

0:37:400:37:43

-So, well done, girls.

-Thank you.

0:37:430:37:45

Lovely roller-coaster. Don't say a word to the Blues, all right?

0:37:450:37:48

-Not at all.

-Not a dickybird.

0:37:480:37:50

Perfect. £49.50 is such a good number.

0:37:500:37:52

So, Nathan, Jamie, do you know how the Reds got on?

0:37:580:38:00

-No idea.

-No idea. Just as well.

0:38:000:38:02

First up comes the ship's compass. And here it comes.

0:38:020:38:06

What's this worth?

0:38:060:38:08

40 to go... Come along, surely £40 for the compass.

0:38:080:38:11

It's a great-looking lot!

0:38:110:38:14

Thank you, Dave, the voice from behind. £20.

0:38:140:38:17

20 quid!

0:38:170:38:18

22 anywhere? Thank you, sir.

0:38:180:38:20

22, 24, 24, 26,

0:38:200:38:24

28, 30, 32, 34,

0:38:240:38:29

36, 38, 40...

0:38:290:38:32

It's going up.

0:38:320:38:34

No? £38 with you, sir. £38, all done?

0:38:340:38:39

LAUGHTER

0:38:390:38:42

Minus 42, I'm afraid.

0:38:420:38:44

Now, some snuff bottles.

0:38:440:38:46

79 are the two Chinese snuff bottles.

0:38:460:38:50

What are these worth?

0:38:500:38:52

£10 for the snuff bottles? Thank you, all over.

0:38:520:38:55

10, 12, 14, 16,

0:38:550:38:58

18, 20, 22, 24,

0:38:580:39:01

26, 28, 30,

0:39:010:39:05

32, 34... 36, no?

0:39:050:39:08

£34 with you, sir.

0:39:080:39:10

36, she's in again. 38...

0:39:100:39:12

Go on, that's it!

0:39:120:39:14

36 quid!

0:39:140:39:15

36, keep it up!

0:39:150:39:18

£36... 38...

0:39:180:39:21

40 on the net!

0:39:210:39:22

42, 44 on the net,

0:39:220:39:25

46 in the room.

0:39:250:39:27

48 anywhere?

0:39:270:39:30

48!

0:39:300:39:31

-48, 50, 55...

-Come on now.

0:39:310:39:34

£50 in the room. Are we done?

0:39:360:39:40

I'm getting right into this.

0:39:400:39:42

£50, thank you, sir.

0:39:420:39:43

50 quid!

0:39:430:39:45

Plus 15, very good.

0:39:450:39:47

-Pig pincushion.

-Now, pig pincushion.

0:39:470:39:50

Start me a tenner, thank you, £10.

0:39:500:39:53

12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24,

0:39:530:39:57

26, 28, 26 on left, £26...28...

0:39:570:40:02

Oh, I was so sure... Oh, 28!

0:40:020:40:05

30, 32, £30 in the room.

0:40:050:40:08

We broke even!

0:40:080:40:10

It's yours, sir, at 30. £30 in the room.

0:40:100:40:13

Are we done at 30?

0:40:130:40:17

At least we haven't lost nowt, have we?

0:40:170:40:19

Wiped its face.

0:40:190:40:21

OK, so that's it - no profit, no loss, no pain, no gain,

0:40:210:40:24

-and, overall, you are minus 27.

-OK.

0:40:240:40:26

Minus £27 is the final score. Now, what about this planter job?

0:40:260:40:30

I think we'll go for it, yeah. May as well. We're in the negative.

0:40:300:40:33

Well, we're in for it

0:40:330:40:35

and here it comes.

0:40:350:40:36

£20 to start me.

0:40:360:40:39

£10 anywhere?

0:40:390:40:41

£10 for the planter. It's for nowt. Thank you, James, £10, 12 anywhere?

0:40:410:40:46

Oh, Dermot, a maiden bid of a tenner. Have you seen the quality?

0:40:460:40:51

No!

0:40:510:40:52

£10 only.

0:40:520:40:54

12 - it's creeping up.

0:40:540:40:56

12... 14. Hello, madam, again!

0:40:560:40:59

Here we go, I'll buy you some flowers!

0:40:590:41:02

16? £14, 16 on the net.

0:41:020:41:05

Come on, don't let him beat you. 18.

0:41:050:41:08

20? £18 in the room.

0:41:080:41:11

Your perseverance has paid off, madam.

0:41:110:41:14

£18, are we done? Yes, we are!

0:41:140:41:18

Brilliant!

0:41:180:41:19

Plus £3... Minus £24. OK, chaps?

0:41:190:41:22

-Yeah.

-Anyway, it could be a winning score. COULD.

0:41:220:41:24

Minus £24.

0:41:240:41:26

Say not a word to the Reds, all right?

0:41:260:41:28

-Not a word.

-Well done, thank you.

0:41:280:41:30

Oh, guys. Still, we tried our hardest.

0:41:300:41:33

Well, well, well...

0:41:390:41:40

two teams, same place to shop, same amount of money to invest,

0:41:400:41:45

what a difference in the result, eh?

0:41:450:41:47

Anyway, the team that are running up by a good old wodge are...

0:41:470:41:51

-the Blues.

-Oh!

-Bad luck, Blues.

0:41:510:41:53

I mean, you entered into the spirit of this, didn't you, Nathan?

0:41:530:41:57

-Oh, yes!

-You certainly did, gosh!

0:41:570:41:59

Anyway, there you go, you got £15 off those snuff bottles.

0:41:590:42:02

-Yeah, I thought they would've done better than that.

-Do you?

0:42:020:42:05

We took the expert advice.

0:42:050:42:06

There we go.

0:42:060:42:08

Anyway, they did extraordinarily well for what they were.

0:42:080:42:11

And the Eastern brass planter - well done, potted on that.

0:42:110:42:15

£3 on the bonus buy.

0:42:150:42:16

That's a profit. A profit's a profit.

0:42:160:42:18

But overall, minus £24...

0:42:180:42:20

which is not the end result, was it, really?

0:42:200:42:22

But you didn't invest much and you had a good time.

0:42:220:42:25

Oh, loved it - been cracking, hasn't it?

0:42:250:42:27

-Was it good for you, Jamie?

-Yeah, it's been fantastic.

0:42:270:42:29

Good, well, we've loved having you on the show.

0:42:290:42:31

But the victors today, who are going home with £49.50...

0:42:310:42:34

would have been likely to go home with a whole wodge more

0:42:340:42:38

if Mr Brannam's West Country pottery had done better, right?

0:42:380:42:41

Because you bought a snuffbox for £40, you sold it for £130,

0:42:410:42:44

you made yourself £90 profit - that was so cool!

0:42:440:42:48

You then bought a fish bottle-opener jobbie for £6.50

0:42:480:42:51

and you sold that for £42,

0:42:510:42:53

which gave you £35, which was so cool.

0:42:530:42:55

And then along came Mark Stacey

0:42:550:42:57

and you gave them a lovely bonus buy,

0:42:570:42:59

which made another profit.

0:42:590:43:00

So, there's been loads of profits for you. Did you have a good time?

0:43:000:43:03

-Had a fantastic time.

-It's been brilliant.

0:43:030:43:05

We've loved having you.

0:43:050:43:06

In fact, it's been so good, why don't you join us soon

0:43:060:43:08

for some more bargain hunting? Yes?

0:43:080:43:10

ALL: Yes!

0:43:100:43:11

The reds take on the blues in the beautiful city of Lincoln. It's a rather snowy affair, and the teams have to battle through blizzards to find well-priced antiques. Tim Wonnacott tracks down an interesting silver purchase, and there's plenty of activity at the auction.
