The Warehouse Antiques & Collectables Plays Host to Bargain Hunt and can be watched live on BBC1 - Monday 24th February at 12.15pm. Erick Knowles is at the helm with antique experts Danny Sebastian and Caroline Hawley.
The show will kick off with Eric Knowles introducing the ‘Red Team’ and the ‘Blue Team’ on the shop floor.
Each team is then joined by a celebrity antique expert, Danny Sebastian and Caroline Hawley.
The two teams one red the other blue each have £300 and one hour to buy antiques which they have to sell at auction and try and make a profit!
The teams were spoilt for choice, the Antique Centre has over 100 exhibitors/dealers, one of the largest in the UK with an immense choice of vintage, retro, stamps, silver, militaria, coins, models, books, jewellery, bygone tools, shabby chic and a vinyl record shop.
Once the teams have purchased their antiques, the experts use the leftover money and go shopping. Their purchases are ‘bonus buys’ and then each team has to decide whether or not to take their expert’s item to auction. But there’s a catch! Just because it has been bought by an expert doesn’t mean that it’s going to make money - it’s a gamble all round.
Eric Knowles then discusses with the auctioneer the chances of each item making or losing money for the teams before the sale. The auction begins and the teams get to keep the difference between what they spend on an item and the hammer price at the auction house, it can become very tense indeed! There are plenty of highs and lows in the saleroom and Eric meets an unlikely war hero!
Filming on the day a great success and Derek Clark, Director at The Warehouse Antiques & Collectables said “All of our staff were delighted to welcome the Bargain Hunt team and a thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all, we all look forward to watching it on Monday”
