Take your treasures along to a valuation day and you could appear on the show

Fans of popular BBC television show Flog It! can meet presenter Paul Martin and the team at a valuation day at Coventry Transport Museum on 3rd March. 

If that's not in your area, keep an eye on this website for updates on where the show will be travelling next. This week, on Tuesday 24th January, they'll be setting up valuation desks at The Imperial War Museum in Duxford Cambridgeshire, before heading to Bath Assembly Rooms on 16th February. 

Members of the public are invited to take along any 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 on the day will receive a valuation – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.

Previous shows have unearthed such items as a ceramic bowl, which was bought at a car-boot sale for £4 and sold at auction for £1,500.

To be in with a chance of appearing on the weekday show, take your antiques and collectables along between 9.30am and 4pm.

For more details, or if you have a large piece of furniture or other big item, email flogit@bbc.co.uk, phone 0117 974 7839 or write to Flog It!, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2LR.
