America needs a show like this!
28 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

OK here's what goes on. Two knowledgeable antiques dealers travel around from antique shop to shop in a competition. They switch out the dealers and several have become fan favorites like Paul and Anita. They look around for bargains, haggle heavy, and bring what they found to auction, to see who can generate the most profits. They start out with 200p(around $400) they drive a cool vintage car, they banter playfully. They show some history each episode. They get to the auction. Sometimes they chose well, sometimes they chose bad. It's showing that NOBODY sets the market prices, the MARKET sets the price. In other words, things sell for what people are willing to pay. You see the pre sale estimates, and exactly what the things sold for. Anita once bought something cheap that sold for a brand new car price! But people have spent hundreds on something, and only got a fraction of their money back too.

This is the difference between the American shows which always TELLS THE VIEWERS what they'll get like that's set in stone. They never point out mistakes or things that brought many times their estimates. They act like they get what they say.

This is fantastic information! You could have an item that sold for $200 on EBAY and you can't sell it for half that. Why? Many, many, many factors. The one person who wanted it for that price already bought one. There was some fakery going on bidding wise(they bid it up). Yours isn't exactly like that one. Your pictures and description weren't good. There's myriads of factors. But like I said our American shows act like their estimates are Gospel.

These people running around are characters, and have funny, and interesting personalities. They point out lots of interesting things. Our people are thugs and jerks looking to rip off the public. If you haven't caught episodes yet, please do.

And unlike the American shows, this is all a competition for charity. Not all faked drama with a bunch of people who don't really buy and sell anymore, and instead have become actors on TV pretending they still do what they used before they got a show.
