We finally made it to the Norfolk Antiques Fair.

0:00:260:00:29

Will it be plain sailing for our teams?

0:00:300:00:33

Let's meet our Bargain Hunters.

0:00:330:00:35

So we're joined by two teams of friends.

0:00:350:00:38

In red, we've got Paula and Lisa. In blue, we've got Stephen and John.

0:00:380:00:41

Hello. ALL: Hello!

0:00:410:00:43

Now, Paula, I understand you're a whizz with the camera. Is that true?

0:00:430:00:48

It is my job, yes. I am a freelance photographer.

0:00:480:00:51

What does that really involve?

0:00:510:00:52

Graduations, holding the scroll, school photography,

0:00:520:00:56

little bit of weddings, that kind of thing.

0:00:560:00:59

Are you a keen Bargain Hunter? Are you a collector? I like trains.

0:00:590:01:04

I love steam trains. I am going to build my own model railway village.

0:01:040:01:08

Now, Lisa, you've got a relationship with trains, haven't you? Yes.

0:01:080:01:11

Before I was married and had my children, I worked for Eurostar.

0:01:110:01:16

God, that must have been really fun. It was brilliant.

0:01:160:01:19

It was really good fun.

0:01:190:01:20

How are you going to cope with the shopping today?

0:01:200:01:22

Lisa's in charge of the money, cos she's Mum.

0:01:220:01:24

As long as she doesn't go too cheap and rubbish, we'll be fine.

0:01:240:01:27

And you must listen to your expert. Yes. We must, exactly.

0:01:270:01:30

Absolutely, yeah, yeah. Now to the Blues. Stephen and John. Hello.

0:01:300:01:33

Hello. Now, Stephen, you were a teacher.

0:01:330:01:36

What did you teach? I taught geography, history, RE and English.

0:01:360:01:41

What was your favourite subject? I'd have to say RE.

0:01:410:01:43

I was head of department for a while. Really? Yeah.

0:01:430:01:46

I am technically a reverend. Are you? Yeah. I, um... I know!

0:01:460:01:50

I went online and I became a minister

0:01:500:01:54

of the Universal Life Church of Modesto, California.

0:01:540:01:57

John, you are partially sighted.

0:01:570:01:59

How's that going to work with the shopping today?

0:01:590:02:01

If I can get the light in right, I can see a little bit.

0:02:010:02:05

Obviously, I've got to rely on him to give me some direction.

0:02:050:02:09

But he's not to be trusted most of the time! I wouldn't trust him!

0:02:090:02:13

Although he's told us he's a reverend. Yeah, well...

0:02:130:02:16

THEY LAUGH

0:02:160:02:17

I think that speaks volumes, doesn't it, really?

0:02:170:02:19

So I'd better give you some money, then. Please. Here you are.

0:02:190:02:22

There's ?300. Thank you very much.

0:02:220:02:24

Give it to the reverend.

0:02:240:02:25

The reverend, there's ?300 for you. Thank you very much. Off you go.

0:02:250:02:28

Your experts await and good luck! Thank you.

0:02:280:02:31

I can't wait to see how our pair of friends do today.

0:02:310:02:34

So let's meet our experts.

0:02:340:02:36

He'll think outside the box. Nick Hall teams up with the Reds.

0:02:380:02:42

And she'll steer the Blues in the right direction.

0:02:430:02:46

SHE BEEPS HORN It's Natasha Raskin.

0:02:460:02:47

So, ladies, what are we looking for today?

0:02:490:02:52

Well, for me, I think it will be jewellery.

0:02:520:02:54

I would say glass, but I'm very clumsy

0:02:540:02:57

so that's not a very good idea, is it?

0:02:570:03:00

And? Silver and glassware.

0:03:000:03:02

I'm calling you John and Stephen but is that what you call one another?

0:03:020:03:05

This is Moggs. Moggs, nice to meet you. Hello, Moggs. And who are you?

0:03:050:03:09

I'm Woody. Well, Woody and Moggs, follow me.

0:03:090:03:12

They're out of the traps

0:03:120:03:13

and they're off and their 60 minutes starts now.

0:03:130:03:15

BARKING

0:03:150:03:16

Follow me. Let's go find some bargains.

0:03:160:03:19

Excellent. Come on. Let's shop.

0:03:190:03:20

OK. We're on the clock.

0:03:210:03:23

John, we are right at the tip of the fair here. No, sorry, I said John.

0:03:230:03:26

Moggs. Moggs. Moggs.

0:03:260:03:28

Crikey! Oh, wow! Wow! Where are we going to start? Where do we start?

0:03:290:03:33

Oh, gosh. Well, where do we start? Well, the answer is the beginning.

0:03:330:03:37

Which is here. Come on. Straight down here. Right, OK.

0:03:370:03:40

We'll go for it. Serious looking, serious buying. Come on.

0:03:400:03:43

That Chinese charger on the back there.

0:03:450:03:47

First thoughts?

0:03:470:03:49

Um... It's got a nice colour. Oh, yeah? Yeah, I agree with you there.

0:03:490:03:52

What I can tell you is it's bang on trend at the minute. Yeah.

0:03:520:03:55

Yeah, it is, isn't it? It's Chinese famille rose porcelain from Canton.

0:03:550:03:59

It's got a bit of age about it

0:03:590:04:01

and it's just what the Asian market wants.

0:04:010:04:03

But let's have a closer look at it. OK.

0:04:030:04:05

It's been through the wars, I think.

0:04:050:04:08

It's cracked from the top going all the way... Where?

0:04:080:04:10

Oh, gosh. Yeah, you're right.

0:04:100:04:11

Does that massively affect the value?

0:04:110:04:13

I'm assuming it obviously does affect the value, but how much?

0:04:130:04:16

Depends on how rare the object is. OK.

0:04:160:04:19

If it's something incredibly rare, the damage is less important.

0:04:190:04:22

If there's lots of these things around, they're not so rare,

0:04:220:04:24

the damage is all-important.

0:04:240:04:26

So let's have a look. I mean, the first thing is the price, OK?

0:04:260:04:29

It's ?79. That's obviously reflected because there is damage in there.

0:04:290:04:33

Because there is damage, yeah. Absolutely.

0:04:330:04:35

But you've got this lovely array of figures here.

0:04:350:04:37

Oh, gosh. Look, though. Oh, my!

0:04:370:04:39

I mean, the nice thing is that these rivets...

0:04:390:04:42

You know, they're 100 years old. Wow!

0:04:420:04:46

So yes, the damage is a problem...

0:04:460:04:48

What would you expect us to make on that, dependent on the price we get?

0:04:480:04:51

Well, if it wasn't damaged,

0:04:510:04:52

I'd have said it's going to make a couple of hundred pounds. Yeah.

0:04:520:04:55

With damage, maybe ?50-80. Yeah, I see that.

0:04:550:04:58

We're not a million miles off the ticket price. No.

0:04:580:05:01

I like it, because it's something different that we wouldn't

0:05:010:05:03

have picked, would we? Let me see what the best price is and then...

0:05:030:05:06

Yeah, yeah. I think some negotiation, yeah.

0:05:060:05:08

Why don't you have a look at that? I'll go and see if I can track down

0:05:080:05:11

the stallholder and check the prices. It's quite heavy.

0:05:110:05:13

I'll come back with an update. OK. Thank you. Excellent. Thank you

0:05:130:05:16

It is lovely, isn't it?

0:05:160:05:18

The more you look at it, the more you see in detail.

0:05:180:05:20

It's quite pretty. But will the price be as attractive?

0:05:200:05:24

?60 is the absolute death on it. OK. OK. Why not?

0:05:240:05:27

I think let's go for it. Really? Let's go for it.

0:05:270:05:30

A ?60 Chinese takeaway. Oh!

0:05:300:05:33

Now, is there any sign of the Blues splashing some cash?

0:05:330:05:37

Hold on, Woody's picked up a vintage tape measure.

0:05:370:05:39

OK, does this appeal to the geography teacher in you?

0:05:390:05:41

That's only eight quid.

0:05:410:05:44

I don't know. It's a really tactile item. Have a fondle.

0:05:440:05:47

You see that little hook that you've got in your left hand... Oh!

0:05:470:05:50

..if you pull on that, that becomes the tape. My Dad had one like this.

0:05:500:05:54

Don't pull it too hard, you might snap it.

0:05:540:05:56

Yes. I'll let you have that back, shall I? Just in case!

0:05:560:05:59

What does it say on it? Something to do with lawn tennis.

0:05:590:06:02

Yeah, lawn tennis. Lawn tennis measure.

0:06:020:06:04

So, a lawn tennis measure... And if you look here, carefully, you can

0:06:040:06:08

actually see the lengths for the service line.

0:06:080:06:11

42ft. Oh!

0:06:110:06:13

That's having a go from just being a vintage tape measure to

0:06:130:06:16

actually being a piece of sports equipment.

0:06:160:06:19

OK, shall we ask about it? Yeah.

0:06:190:06:22

Hello, sir. Good morning.

0:06:220:06:24

Good morning, sir. Seven's the best. Seven's the best.

0:06:240:06:27

OK. Well, if an auction house catalogues that correctly,

0:06:270:06:30

then I think it could get a little bit of interest.

0:06:300:06:32

Do you want to go for it, then? I think it might only make three quid.

0:06:320:06:35

We've got to give Natasha a chance to get us this Golden Gavel.

0:06:350:06:38

We have, yeah. No pressure, Tash!

0:06:380:06:41

Are you up for it? Yeah, we'll go for that. OK.

0:06:410:06:43

Go for it. We're in consensus. Thank you very much. Thank you, sir.

0:06:430:06:47

That's game, set and match on the tape measure.

0:06:470:06:50

Something has caught my eye. Oh, right.

0:06:510:06:54

This fantastic Art Deco fireside set.

0:06:540:06:57

I know you both like a bit of Art Deco. I do like Art Deco. Yeah.

0:06:570:07:00

I love it. And the back... Look, if I just spin him round, you'll see what I mean.

0:07:000:07:04

I do like him. Do you like him? I do.

0:07:040:07:06

I think that is... He's cute, isn't he?

0:07:060:07:09

People love dogs. Well, they do. And people have fires.

0:07:090:07:12

People have a lot of fires. It's ticking a few boxes, isn't it?

0:07:120:07:15

On the back, it's got the tongs and the brush and all that malarkey.

0:07:150:07:19

Oh, I see. And how much is this?

0:07:190:07:21

Well, it's starting at ?45.

0:07:210:07:23

I say "starting", cos everything's negotiable in this place. He's heavy, isn't he? It is weighty.

0:07:230:07:28

I'm not going to hold him. Cos I'll drop him.

0:07:280:07:31

It's useful as well. Yeah. Dogs sell.

0:07:310:07:33

I think we'll go and... I think we'll negotiate.

0:07:330:07:36

Go and ask the question and be tough. Negotiate!

0:07:360:07:39

Get that price down! Come on! She's scary.

0:07:390:07:42

Get the bit between your teeth, like a dog with a bone. Go on!

0:07:420:07:45

I don't know. These girls are pussycats, Nick.

0:07:450:07:48

What's going on? We haven't got time. 35. What do you think?

0:07:480:07:51

?35. Do you like it? I think we should go for it. Right, sold.

0:07:510:07:55

Shake the lady's hand. Thank you.

0:07:550:07:57

Cracking job, Reds. That's two buys down with 25 minutes to go.

0:07:570:08:02

The Blues are still after their second buy

0:08:020:08:04

and they're thirsty for a bargain!

0:08:040:08:07

Maybe this lemonade set will do the trick.

0:08:070:08:10

It's got a label on it here.

0:08:100:08:12

We've got Ceramique De Vallauris and it's Fait Main,

0:08:120:08:15

which means made by hand.

0:08:150:08:17

What you've got, John, is you've got little hand-thrown drinking cups

0:08:170:08:20

that are quite tall actually, kind of beakers with handles.

0:08:200:08:24

And they've got a border in flaming orange and a sort of mottled body.

0:08:240:08:28

But it's all very attractive.

0:08:280:08:30

The gentleman is just whispering in our ears that this has a Picasso

0:08:300:08:33

connection, because this Ceramique De Vallauris are the company

0:08:330:08:37

that threw the designs made by Picasso.

0:08:370:08:42

Ooh, la-la!

0:08:420:08:44

Probably a sort of 1960s, 1970s piece, thrown,

0:08:440:08:47

and each piece marked at the base, embossed at the bottom, Vallauris.

0:08:470:08:52

So we can say this is the real McCoy.

0:08:520:08:55

Excellent. Do we have a price tag on that? We don't.

0:08:550:08:58

Now, with that kind of Picasso connection, it's probably not going to come too cheap.

0:08:580:09:02

But here we are, on the clock, shall we ask?

0:09:020:09:04

Moggs, if you do a sort of a 180, you will be facing our stallholder.

0:09:040:09:08

And you might want to ask him. Have you got a price on this?

0:09:080:09:11

There's a ticket on it.

0:09:110:09:13

Oh, is there? Yeah, 175. How did we not see that label?

0:09:130:09:17

We're not keeping our eyes peeled here.

0:09:170:09:20

I think I saw it. But we can...

0:09:200:09:23

I can do 145 for you.

0:09:230:09:24

There it is. 145. That's as far as you'd go, is it? 145?

0:09:240:09:28

OK, put your value in here, then.

0:09:280:09:30

140. 140.

0:09:300:09:32

140. Shall we do it?

0:09:320:09:34

Time ticks on.

0:09:340:09:35

Try for 135.

0:09:350:09:38

Would you do it for 135? Yeah.

0:09:380:09:41

I should have gone for 125!

0:09:410:09:44

What do you think? Yeah. Yeah, 135, then?

0:09:440:09:48

That's brilliant. Thank you.

0:09:480:09:51

Well, I tell you what, it's always nice to have something eye-catching.

0:09:510:09:54

Both teams have two items and 15 minutes to get their last lot.

0:09:550:09:59

We're agreeing far too much, Paula. I know, we need to have a row here.

0:10:020:10:07

OK, so do you have any idea what this is, first of all?

0:10:070:10:09

I think it's for winding something like wool. That's a good shout, actually.

0:10:090:10:13

You might want to get your hand in here, we've got so many different elements to this.

0:10:130:10:17

We've got a sort of a water wheel effect going around, we've got

0:10:170:10:20

a handle crank, we've got a gauge, we've got a bell,

0:10:200:10:23

we have got all sorts going on here, all on top of a large wooden stand.

0:10:230:10:27

It's a bit of a hefty piece, to be honest with you.

0:10:270:10:30

Which could mean a whopping price tag. Hello, sir.

0:10:300:10:33

It's a hefty piece! It's a hefty piece.

0:10:330:10:35

Well, that's what we call them in Scotland, not wool winders, a hefty piece.

0:10:350:10:39

Is that what it is, a wool winder? It is. Woody, you know your stuff.

0:10:390:10:43

OK, so, what's the price on it?

0:10:430:10:46

95. ?95.

0:10:460:10:47

OK. Any movement on that?

0:10:470:10:50

A little bit. They're quite keen.

0:10:500:10:53

OK, I would say it's probably 40-60, 50-80, something like that,

0:10:530:10:56

and 50-80, I think, is probably the top end of it.

0:10:560:10:59

It's not a collector's item, is it? I'd collect it! I think so. I think so. Yeah, I'd have that.

0:10:590:11:04

75?

0:11:040:11:05

80.

0:11:050:11:07

I can't give it to you lower than 80.

0:11:070:11:10

Shall we put this gentleman out of his misery? Yeah. And say ?80.

0:11:100:11:13

Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you.

0:11:130:11:17

Thank you. Thank you.

0:11:170:11:19

Bravo, Blues! You've bagged the wool winder with five minutes to spare.

0:11:190:11:23

Well, there's no point stringing it out!

0:11:230:11:26

I think it's time to wind things down and go for a cup of tea.

0:11:260:11:29

What do you reckon? Or a pint.

0:11:290:11:32

Listen, grab on to your pal and let's go this way.

0:11:320:11:34

Nick, what have you found? Hello.

0:11:360:11:38

You thought I'd sneaked off for a crafty cup of tea, didn't you?

0:11:380:11:42

We thought you had, yeah. I'm working. I've spotted these teapots.

0:11:420:11:45

There's a whole load of them, they're all hand-painted.

0:11:450:11:48

I've just never heard of the artist. Linda Harker. It looks very modern.

0:11:480:11:53

Well, they are very modern, but they're good fun.

0:11:530:11:55

You could just see that in your kitchen. In your kitchen, yeah.

0:11:550:11:58

Quite easily. They're not expensive. How much is not expensive?

0:11:580:12:02

How much is not expensive? Well, ?22.

0:12:020:12:04

Now, I've had a chat with the stallholder.

0:12:040:12:07

That is the best price it can be. They were 28.

0:12:070:12:10

Yeah. Have you got hold of it? I've got it.

0:12:100:12:12

Hold it underneath it, not by the handle.

0:12:120:12:14

I think we should go for it. So do I. Because it's so mental. Tick-tock. So do I. Time is ticking.

0:12:140:12:18

Why not? You're going to go for it? Completely off... ?22, you sure?

0:12:180:12:22

Yeah. You're happy? Let's do it, yeah. We're going to finish with a brew. Yes!

0:12:220:12:26

I'll go and pay for it. You get the kettle on. Excellent. Let's do it.

0:12:260:12:31

Come in, teams. Come in, teams. Your 60 minutes is up. 60 minutes up.

0:12:310:12:36

Ladies, you were cool, calm and collected. How much did you spend?

0:12:360:12:39

?117. But you had a lot more!

0:12:390:12:42

I know. I know. It just didn't happen. Frugal, Thomas.

0:12:420:12:46

Frugal. Nick!

0:12:460:12:47

So, Paula, tell me, what's your favourite item?

0:12:470:12:50

My favourite, I would say, is the teapot, our third item. The teapot.

0:12:500:12:54

Yeah, surprisingly, cos it isn't an antique.

0:12:540:12:56

What is going to bring the biggest profit?

0:12:560:12:59

I think our second item. Our little fireside Scottie dog. I'm intrigued.

0:12:590:13:03

What about you, Lisa? I like the fireside Scottie dog

0:13:030:13:06

and I hope he will bring the biggest profit as well. So both of those?

0:13:060:13:09

Both of those. He's a cute little fella. So, who's got the money?

0:13:090:13:12

Oh, I've got the money. Not me. There you go. Look at all of this! I know! Way too much.

0:13:120:13:17

183 exactly. 183 exactly.

0:13:170:13:19

Yeah. Mm. Look at all that lovely lolly! It is, isn't it? What are you going to do with it?

0:13:190:13:23

I'm going to spend big. I hope you do! Good.

0:13:230:13:26

Teach these two a lesson! How it's done. Yeah, absolutely.

0:13:260:13:30

Stephen and John, a good shopping experience? Fantastic.

0:13:300:13:34

Brilliant, yeah. How much did you spend in total? ?222.

0:13:340:13:38

Natasha, well done!

0:13:380:13:40

So, Stephen, what's your favourite item? It's the wool winding machine.

0:13:400:13:44

What's going to bring the biggest profit?

0:13:440:13:47

I think it might be the tape measure!

0:13:470:13:50

The tape measure! John, how about you?

0:13:500:13:52

Well, I like the wool winding machine as well.

0:13:520:13:55

And I think that's going to go for a fortune, that is. Is that going to bring the biggest profit?

0:13:550:13:59

We're going to make an absolute bomb on that. I love the fact...

0:13:590:14:02

I love your confidence in that.

0:14:020:14:04

Does that mean you've got ?78 left? Yes, well done. Can I have it?

0:14:040:14:08

Yes, you can. Oh, is there? Thank you very much.

0:14:080:14:11

Natasha... Oh.

0:14:110:14:12

?78. Here it is.

0:14:120:14:14

I'm blessed. You are blessed. I am blessed. Don't waste it, girl. Oh. Well, waste it...

0:14:140:14:19

I don't know what on earth I'm going to do, Thomas. ?78 doesn't leave me very much.

0:14:190:14:22

I'm going to try and find something tactile for John and,

0:14:220:14:26

I don't know, something glistening for you, Stephen.

0:14:260:14:29

I see you've got an idea.

0:14:290:14:31

And it's just a hop, skip and a jump from Burston to our auction in Diss.

0:14:340:14:38

Well, it's delightful to be here at TW Gaze and Sons

0:14:420:14:44

and I'm joined by director Elizabeth Talbot. Yes, welcome.

0:14:440:14:47

Thank you very much. Pleasure. Pleasure's ours, Tom.

0:14:470:14:51

And we have Paula and Lisa, the Reds. Mm-hm.

0:14:510:14:53

Their first item was this export ware Famille Rose charger.

0:14:530:14:57

Yes, fairly standard of its type. Yes. But decorative.

0:14:570:15:00

There's a lot of the money on the front, all the detail,

0:15:000:15:02

but if you turn to the back, unfortunately, there is the damage.

0:15:020:15:05

We can see it from the front. There is whacking great big crack. Mm.

0:15:050:15:08

All the way through.

0:15:080:15:10

What's your estimate? Well, we put 45 to 60,

0:15:100:15:13

the 60 is our top recommendation, really because of its condition.

0:15:130:15:16

So the ?60 they paid could be a bit of an issue.

0:15:160:15:19

I think we could have to stretch a little hard for that, yes. Well, you'll do your magic. Absolutely.

0:15:190:15:23

Now the next thing is the patinated bronze companion set of the Scottie dog.

0:15:230:15:28

Are you a dog or a cat person? Neither. Neither? Neither. But I do like that.

0:15:280:15:31

I think that will appeal to a lot of people who are dog owners.

0:15:310:15:34

Now, your estimate... Yes. Tell me.

0:15:340:15:36

I think it's 80 to ?120. Now, they've done really well, they've paid ?35 for this.

0:15:360:15:39

I think that's a bargain. I can see that doing really, really well.

0:15:390:15:43

Yes. Now then, next item, I think, is wonderful.

0:15:430:15:46

It is wonderfully...decorative.

0:15:460:15:49

I can read your face, Thomas. You're being very... Um... ..careful.

0:15:490:15:54

So it's 14 years old.

0:15:540:15:56

You know as well as I do, it's not really necessary age or name, if

0:15:560:16:00

it ticks the box and people find it eye-catching, that's what they want.

0:16:000:16:04

Now, your estimate is... 15 to 20.

0:16:040:16:06

15 to ?20. Now, they paid ?22.

0:16:060:16:08

Now, I don't think that's a bad thing. Right.

0:16:080:16:11

I think you'll be up there and you'll see a sea of hands. I hope so!

0:16:110:16:16

Anyway, so the real big problem is the charger. I believe so. Yes.

0:16:160:16:20

So they might need their bonus buy and here it is.

0:16:200:16:23

Paula and Lisa, you spent a miserable ?117,

0:16:230:16:28

leaving Nick with a huge sum of 183.

0:16:280:16:32

Nick, what did you do with it? I went crazy, Tom.

0:16:320:16:36

Get on with it, then. Are you ready for this?

0:16:360:16:38

Are you sure? Are you ready? Go on. And they're off!

0:16:380:16:41

LAUGHTER

0:16:410:16:44

Do you like? I do. What are they?

0:16:440:16:47

Well, they could be gatepost finials, just decorative garden ornaments.

0:16:470:16:52

How much were they?

0:16:520:16:54

Well, I paid quite a strong ?120.

0:16:540:16:58

But I bought them

0:16:580:16:59

because I think they are perfect for the saleroom we are in.

0:16:590:17:01

A nice country auction house. How much?

0:17:010:17:05

Are they going to win the race? I think, on the right day,

0:17:050:17:08

they could easily make a couple of hundred pounds.

0:17:080:17:10

So you don't have to make that decision now.

0:17:100:17:12

But, however, for the viewers at home,

0:17:120:17:14

let's see what the auctioneer thinks about the horses' heads.

0:17:140:17:18

Elizabeth, here it is. Yes. There's a pair of them.

0:17:180:17:21

They are rather heavy, so we've only got one. They're obviously new.

0:17:210:17:24

Yes, but equestrian-themed visuals are good for the garden.

0:17:240:17:28

People like those. So what's your estimate? ?150-?250.

0:17:280:17:31

Well done, Nick Hall.

0:17:310:17:33

He won't have a long face over that.

0:17:330:17:35

SHE LAUGHS

0:17:350:17:37

120 he paid and, if his team goes for it,

0:17:370:17:39

they could get out the charger.

0:17:390:17:41

They might do, it would be a good swap. We are now onto our Blues,

0:17:410:17:43

Stephen and John, who have got, dare I say, an eclectic mix.

0:17:430:17:48

Indeed. Correct word, Thomas.

0:17:480:17:50

Now, an Edwardian brass lawn tennis tape measure. Yes.

0:17:500:17:55

Not that rare,

0:17:550:17:56

but there are people who enthuse after tennis artefacts and so on.

0:17:560:18:00

Your estimate is? ?15-?20. ?7 paid.

0:18:000:18:03

It should double its money. I would hope so, yes. Now...

0:18:030:18:08

Tell me about the lemonade set.

0:18:080:18:10

Well, it is kind of a love or hate it type of thing, isn't it, really?

0:18:100:18:14

I mean, it comes from a region which is famous for ceramics, generally.

0:18:140:18:17

What's your estimate? The estimate is ?50-?80.

0:18:170:18:20

Hmm. They paid ?135.

0:18:200:18:23

I don't know where they bought it from, and who they bought it from,

0:18:230:18:26

but if you've got a specialist who deals in this,

0:18:260:18:28

and they are selling on the name and the strength of the design,

0:18:280:18:31

if that's what you want, you would probably pay that sort of money.

0:18:310:18:34

But it could be a serious loss. I have worries about that one. Anyway.

0:18:340:18:39

But, beside all of that, they, I think, have bought one of the most

0:18:390:18:43

wonderful things I've seen.

0:18:430:18:45

Their third item, the Goodbrand Co wool winder, or thread winder.

0:18:450:18:50

You like this as well, do you? I think this is marvellous..

0:18:500:18:53

There it is, there.

0:18:530:18:54

It just looks like something out of a steam engine, a pump works.

0:18:540:18:59

It is a great thing. Now, your estimate? Our estimate is ?70-?100.

0:18:590:19:03

They paid ?80 for it. I think they're on the mark there.

0:19:030:19:06

I think it could do quite well.

0:19:060:19:08

I think the big hole is the lemonade set. That would be my judgment, yes.

0:19:080:19:13

Definitely. Could be a three-figure loss. Everything else is nice!

0:19:130:19:17

Let's take a look at Natasha's bonus buy,

0:19:170:19:20

because I think they're going to need it.

0:19:200:19:23

Stephen and John.

0:19:230:19:25

You spent a good amount of money, all the twos, 222!

0:19:250:19:28

Natasha, what did you spend your ?78 on?

0:19:280:19:32

Well, I wanted to buy something that we would enjoy visually,

0:19:320:19:35

a nice pretty thing, and something that John would enjoy

0:19:350:19:38

touching and feeling, so I went for a wee bit of jewellery.

0:19:380:19:42

I went for a sweet wee ring, pretty wee ring.

0:19:420:19:44

Now, John, I want you to have a feel of it, it is in a case.

0:19:440:19:47

So, if you can grab it out, there's a wee ring there.

0:19:470:19:49

And it is quite big, which is quite handy,

0:19:490:19:51

because maybe it will fit on one of your fingers.

0:19:510:19:53

And it is in silver, it is marked 935,

0:19:530:19:56

so probably Continental Silver, just slightly higher grade than sterling.

0:19:560:19:59

Go on, how much did you spend on it? I only spent ?25 on it.

0:19:590:20:03

Which I think is quite fair. How much will it go for?

0:20:030:20:06

I reckon it could make 35, 40, something like that.

0:20:060:20:09

It is a nice gift for somebody. ?25 was paid.

0:20:090:20:13

Let's see what the auctioneer thinks about the Art Deco ring.

0:20:130:20:18

So, Elizabeth, here it is.

0:20:180:20:20

Well, I think that that is a fairly straightforward dress ring.

0:20:200:20:24

It is pretty, nice jade colour, Deco style. It's a very wearable piece.

0:20:240:20:29

You've put? We have put ?35-?45 on it. Which I think is fair enough.

0:20:290:20:34

Well done, Natasha. ?25 paid.

0:20:340:20:38

Very fair. I think that's a profit.

0:20:380:20:39

So, Elizabeth, are you taking the auction?

0:20:390:20:41

I certainly am. I have that honour. That's brilliant.

0:20:410:20:44

We're definitely in safe hands, then.

0:20:440:20:46

Lisa, Paula, how are you feeling? Sick. Excited.

0:20:500:20:52

Sick?!

0:20:520:20:54

Yeah, I do. I'm normally sat at home with a cup of tea at this point.

0:20:540:20:57

You're feeling sick? Yeah... How about you, Lisa?

0:20:570:21:00

Yeah, a bit excited, a bit wary.

0:21:000:21:02

So for the first lot, it's the Chinese plate. It's on now.

0:21:020:21:06

Late 19th-century Chinese export famille rose pattern charger.

0:21:060:21:11

It has been restored. As you've seen, it's stapled.

0:21:110:21:13

20, if you will. Thank you, sir.

0:21:130:21:16

20 in the gallery. At 20 I have.

0:21:160:21:18

Where's the 2 now?

0:21:180:21:20

At 22. 25.

0:21:200:21:22

28, 30.

0:21:220:21:24

32, 35. Upstairs now at 35. Looking for 8.

0:21:240:21:28

It's 35 in the gallery. I'm selling at 35.

0:21:280:21:31

Oh, no!

0:21:310:21:33

So that's minus a 25.

0:21:330:21:35

Right, next up is your lovely fire iron set.

0:21:350:21:39

Wow! It's on now.

0:21:390:21:41

I start at here at ?32. Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!

0:21:410:21:45

It's looking for a home at 32. Where's 5? 35, 38.

0:21:450:21:49

Oh, we're in profit! Profit! Excellent.

0:21:490:21:52

45, 48.

0:21:520:21:53

Oh, it's going! Yes!

0:21:530:21:55

50, 5.

0:21:550:21:57

60, thank you. 60, 65.

0:21:570:21:59

Don't be shy. 70, 5.

0:21:590:22:02

Excellent! Excellent!

0:22:020:22:04

I'm 75. You're out. On my sheets at 75.

0:22:040:22:07

Sold at 75! Brilliant!

0:22:090:22:11

We're back in. A great profit there. ?75 there.

0:22:110:22:15

Right, here we are, 62.

0:22:150:22:17

Hand-painted teapot. ?22 paid. Estimate 15-20. Now...

0:22:170:22:20

Lot 62, the hand-painted teapot, decorated with farm animals

0:22:200:22:23

by Linda Harker.

0:22:230:22:25

I start here at ?8. Where's the 10?

0:22:250:22:27

Oh, come on!

0:22:270:22:29

15, 18, 20,

0:22:290:22:31

2, 25, 28, 30, 2

0:22:310:22:35

35, 38, 40, 2.

0:22:350:22:38

What?! 50 is now in the room. All of my bids are out.

0:22:380:22:42

It's ?50. The lady in the middle. At ?50 on the teapot.

0:22:420:22:45

You can join in elsewhere.

0:22:450:22:46

At ?50 on the teapot.

0:22:460:22:48

Any advance?

0:22:480:22:50

You're a genius! ?50! That is brilliant! ?50!

0:22:500:22:54

That is unbelievably ridiculous.

0:22:540:22:58

The total earnings today is ?43! No way!

0:22:580:23:02

I'm so, so chuffed! So where are you talking me? To the bar.

0:23:020:23:06

Right, quiet. Now, the big decision. Oh, gosh.

0:23:060:23:10

?120 was paid for those horses' heads.

0:23:100:23:14

Shall we go for it? 77, they've only got...

0:23:140:23:17

You've got to make a decision. Let's do it. Yes!

0:23:170:23:19

You're going with the bonus buy. Here come the horses' heads now.

0:23:190:23:22

Pair of composition horse head gate post finials.

0:23:220:23:25

On the sheets here, I start at ?75.

0:23:250:23:28

?75, 80, 5, 90, 5,

0:23:280:23:31

100, 110.

0:23:310:23:33

Keep going!

0:23:330:23:35

120, 130. Profit! The lady's out. 130 with me.

0:23:350:23:39

140, she's back in and I'm out.

0:23:390:23:41

150, new bidder.

0:23:410:23:43

150. Another lady at 150.

0:23:430:23:46

I've lost you, closer to the heads.

0:23:460:23:47

Am I missing anybody else? It's 150.

0:23:470:23:50

Make no mistake. In the middle at ?150.

0:23:500:23:53

Yes! 150.

0:23:540:23:56

Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!

0:23:560:23:57

So that's a ?30 profit on there.

0:23:570:24:00

So that ?30... ?73!

0:24:000:24:04

Well done. Where's mine? Where's mine?!

0:24:040:24:08

Shh! Quiet, quiet!

0:24:080:24:10

Remember, not a word to the Blues. Go in stony faced.

0:24:100:24:13

Absolutely. Well done.

0:24:130:24:16

Stephen and John, Natasha. How exciting. How are you guys feeling?

0:24:220:24:26

Nervous. I'm expecting disaster, I must be honest.

0:24:260:24:30

Are you expecting disaster? No, don't be such a naysayer!

0:24:300:24:33

Right, now, your first item is the Edwardian brass lawn tennis

0:24:330:24:38

measuring tape and it's up now.

0:24:380:24:41

A nice vintage piece for you. I have interest starting at ?8. Yay!

0:24:410:24:45

?8 I have.

0:24:450:24:47

?8. Bid is ?8 now. 10 on the net. 12, 15, 18.

0:24:470:24:51

18 I have.

0:24:510:24:53

I'm looking for 20 now. At ?18 with me.

0:24:530:24:56

20, the hand. Thank you. 22.

0:24:560:24:58

22!

0:24:580:24:59

25, 28. 28!

0:24:590:25:02

I have the ?28. Any advance on ?28 now?

0:25:020:25:05

This is exciting!

0:25:050:25:07

?28! That is a profit of 21.

0:25:080:25:12

We need serious fingers crossed for the next one, though.

0:25:120:25:15

It's got the jugs, six mugs and a wirework stand.

0:25:150:25:18

Love it or hate it, I do have interest on my sheets here.

0:25:180:25:20

Interest.

0:25:200:25:22

I start a bottom estimate at ?50. 50 only. ?50 is bid.

0:25:220:25:25

We need more than at. Where are you at 5?

0:25:250:25:27

55, sir. 60. Where are you at 5?

0:25:270:25:31

At ?60. Surely worth more.

0:25:310:25:34

65 and 70.

0:25:340:25:36

75 in the room and I'm out. 75!

0:25:360:25:38

75 is now the gentlemen. Middle bid at 75 downstairs.

0:25:380:25:42

75. I'm selling.

0:25:420:25:44

8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13. The gavel's gone.

0:25:450:25:47

So that's 6... A ?60 loss.

0:25:470:25:52

Right, here we are, our next lot. Looking for 100 quid.

0:25:520:25:54

The wall winder.

0:25:540:25:56

Cast iron and brass mechanical wall winder on a mahogany bass.

0:25:560:25:58

30 to start.

0:25:580:25:59

Come on. They are desperate to sell it. ?30 upstairs.

0:25:590:26:01

At ?30, where are you at 2?

0:26:010:26:03

It's ?30. She's stealing it at 30. Surely make a 40.

0:26:030:26:06

Where are you at 32, sir? 35, 38.

0:26:060:26:09

40. I'm disappointed with this.

0:26:090:26:11

At ?40, where's 2?

0:26:110:26:14

Oh, it's a bargain.

0:26:140:26:16

You'll regret it in the morning. At ?40. All done.

0:26:160:26:19

Oh, that's a steal. It's a steal. Oh! We were robbed!

0:26:190:26:22

40. So minus 40. That's minus 40. Oh, no!

0:26:220:26:25

Now, it's hideous. Minus ?79.

0:26:250:26:30

Now, what are you going to do? You've got Natasha's bonus buy.

0:26:300:26:34

It's the Deco-style ring. What are you going to do with it, John?

0:26:340:26:37

We've got to go with it. Going for it? Going for it.

0:26:370:26:39

Right, I can tell you now that Natasha paid 25.

0:26:390:26:43

the auctioneer's estimate is ?35-45.

0:26:430:26:46

And it's up now.

0:26:460:26:48

The Deco-style ring. Very wearable piece of costume jewellery.

0:26:480:26:51

Interest on the sheet. I start at ?18. 18!

0:26:510:26:54

?18 bid. That could go.

0:26:540:26:56

I have the ?18. Now looking for 20.

0:26:560:26:58

Come on, it's for nothing. What?! It is for nothing.

0:26:580:27:01

20 bid, sir.

0:27:010:27:02

22, 25, 28. 30 in the room and I'm out. Yay! That's ?5 profit.

0:27:020:27:06

30. I'm looking for 2.

0:27:060:27:09

At the 30. Where are you at 2?

0:27:090:27:11

Any advance?

0:27:110:27:12

?30. Well done, Tasha.

0:27:120:27:15

That's plus a fiver.

0:27:150:27:16

That makes your score now minus ?74.

0:27:170:27:20

Now, that still could be a winning score. So walk back in there.

0:27:200:27:24

Don't say anything to the Reds. I want poker faces. Poker face.

0:27:240:27:27

Well, what a fun show that was.

0:27:340:27:36

But I have to say the difference between

0:27:360:27:39

the two teams is unbelievable.

0:27:390:27:43

You couldn't have written it. Oh, dear.

0:27:430:27:46

So today, I have to say, the runners up

0:27:460:27:51

are the Blues.

0:27:510:27:53

Yes!

0:27:530:27:55

We knew it was coming.

0:27:550:27:56

All right, all right, let's not gloat!

0:27:560:27:58

Shh, calm down!

0:27:590:28:01

Blues, look, I'm sorry, it just didn't go the way

0:28:010:28:05

you wanted it to go, did it? No, we wanted to win.

0:28:050:28:09

I just wanted a Golden Gavel. Oh, well, I'm afraid...

0:28:090:28:12

It started off really well... Yeah.

0:28:120:28:13

..with a bit of profit and then it all just went a bit downhill.

0:28:130:28:16

Natasha, your Art Deco-style ring did make a ?5 profit. Yes!

0:28:160:28:20

Which meant, at the end of it, it was minus ?74.

0:28:200:28:24

So the Reds, well done, you. ?73 profit!

0:28:260:28:30

Whoohoo!

0:28:300:28:33

So who's having the notes? There we are.

0:28:330:28:36

And here's ?3. Thank you. Well done. Thanks.

Thomas Plant is at the helm as the hunt for bargains heads to the Norfolk Antiques Fair. Two teams of best friends will buy three items and compete to make the most profit at the auction in Diss. Providing a helping hand to our reds and blues are Nick Hall and Natasha Raskin. Meanwhile, Thomas learns how Norfolk schoolchildren went on strike in 1914.
