Why let your antiques collect dust in the attic when you can
sell them for cash?
Take money on the spot from a
dealer OR if you think the item’s worth more….take a gamble at
The first series of David
Dickinson’s popular antiques show for ITV has been regularly drawing
over a million viewers a day. Meanwhile his cast of colourful
antiques dealers are quickly becoming stars in their own right.
Back for a second series, David and
the dealers will be travelling around the country looking for some
more bobby dazzlers brought in by members of the public. If you want
to sell your goods…but only for the right price! Then come along to
Peterborough Regional College, Park Crescent on Saturday 10
March 2007. You could be quids in
like many of the people who have already taken part.
Dorothy and Jackie got ₤860 from
Mike Melody when they brought three watercolours along to our
Liverpool show. Not bad considering they bought them off a bloke in
the street for ₤20.
Motor-mouthed dealer Clive Attrell
came up against a hard bargainer in Sue Adams in Taunton, who
haggled him up to ₤790 for her Galle vase.
Ian Towning, the high-flying
Chelsea antiques dealer only buys goods in pristine condition so he
didn’t bid on a damaged Ferdinand Priess figure. Owners Anthony and
Caroline miller went on to sell it at auction for ₤3600!
As usual David Dickinson will be
keeping an eye on the deals giving advice when needed on whether to
take the dealers’ cash or gamble at auction. But the final decision
lies with our contributors and it’s up to them to decide which
option is the REAL DEAL!
“This is the programme that will
level the playing field between dealers and auction houses,” says
