Join Paul Martin at a Flog It! valuation day near you


Paul Martin and the team are touring towns around the country to value your treasures for the popular BBC antiques show Flog It! - and they've just added a new date.

They will be visiting De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, on Wednesday 24th August. If you can't wait until then, they're at St Johns Minster, Preston on Wednesday 13th July.

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 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 carboot sale for £4 and sold at auction for £1,500.

You can also take your items along to the following venues:


Stapleford Park near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire on Thursday 21st July 

Alnwick Castle, Northumberland on Tuesday 2nd August

Victoria Hall, Saltaire, Shipley on Thursday 4th August

Buckland Abbey, Yelverton, Devon on Thursday 1st September.

To be in with a chance of appearing on the weekday show, take your antiques and collectables along to a venue 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.
