Did you happen to catch Martin's starring role in "Celebrity Antiques Road Trip" Tuesday? It may have been a flying visit but expert Paul Laidlaw and actor Brian Cox (of "Braveheart" and "Silence of The Lambs" fame) didn't beat about the bush. Within minutes of entering our shop they secured a lovely selection of enamel signs for their stash.
The collection included a bright and bold Brooke Bond tea sign and a very collectible level crossing sign both from the 1950s. After the traditional,
outrageously hard haggling, that has become such a feature of such shows, the signs were duly taken away for the bargain price of £115. And the result at auction? A small profit was made (not bad when buying in a retail establishment to sell at auction - what is traditionally viewed as the "wholesale" end of the antiques trade!).
With plenty of banter between shots, a fun day was had by everyone, and with all profits going to Children In Need, it was indeed a pleasure to be involved.
