Flog It Comes to DorchesterSunday, January 31st, 2010
The popular BBC2 antiques programme, Flog It, presented by Paul Martin, is coming to Dorchester this month.
Flog It! – the major BBC2 antiques series – regularly gets an audience of 2 million viewers each weekday – around 25% of the television audience.
Flog It Valuation Day
The Dorford Centre will be hosting the Flog It Valuation Day this Wednesday, the 3rd February. Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public are invited to bring along the antiques and collectables they might be interested in selling.
Once valued, the owner and team of experts decide whether it should go forward for auction. If the item is chosen it is sold a few weeks later – often with the owner making a tidy sum. Everyone who goes along to the Valuation Day will receive a valuation – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.
Previous programmes have seen a small cream jug sold at auction for £1,300; a ceramic bowl, bought for £4 at a car boot sale, achieving £1,500; and a lady in Aberdeen sold a Shelley tea set for a huge £3,400! So if you’ve ever wondered how much those boot sale bargains or clutter in the loft might be worth, now is your chance to find out.
Presented by Paul Martin, Flog It! will be at The Dorford Centre, Bridport Road, Dorchester, Dorset, DT1 1RR, on Wednesday 3rd February 2010 from 9.30am until 4.00pm for valuations.
Flog It Auction
TheFlog It Auction will take place on Tuesday 23rd February 2010 at the Duke’s Saleroom and will be broadcast as part of the ninth series this year.
