Flog It

LIVING CHANNEL – Weekdays from Monday 13 June, 5pm

It’s amazing what treasures can be found in the average British home. Flog It is a travelling roadshow around the UK where members of the public are invited to bring their antiques, heirlooms and collectibles for valuation by a team of experts. Presenter Paul Martin then gives them the option to sell at a local auction. Will they part with their antiques – especially tough if they have sentimental value? And will the items reach, or even exceed, their estimated value? The personal stories, the fascinating history of each object and the tension in the auction house make this series compulsive viewing. All sorts of things come under the Flog It hammer, and this series includes 32 railway advertising posters from the golden age of steam, a 19th-century mahogany cheese coaster, Lalique glassware and a collection of Dinky toy cars.

Paul Martin and his team of expert auctioneers invite allcomers along to Valuation Day with their prized possessions and family heirlooms. Once valued by a member of the team, the owner and the experts decide whether their trinkets and treasures should go forward to auction. If the item is chosen, it will be sold a couple of weeks later and hopefully, make a tidy sum for the owner. The show’s guests are often not shy in trying to make a buck from their family heirlooms, and they’ll need all the enthusiasm they can muster to take their items into the cutthroat arena of the auction room. With the traditional appeal of Antiques Roadshow, and the knockabout excitement of Bargain Hunt, Flog It is the ultimate in antique wheeling and dealing.
