Time to dust off all those antiques
Last updated at 16:45, Friday, 02 November 2012
THE Dickinson’s Real Deal television crew is setting up in Barrow Sixth Form College ready to film Furness people haggling for the best price on their treasures against a team of antique dealers.
Celebrity presenter David Dickinson will be based at the Rating Lane college, from 9am to 5pm tomorrow, with a team of eager dealers with pockets full of cash and advice from David Brookes of 1818 Auctioneers.
There should be fireworks as Furness people lock horns with the dealers to try and extract as much money as possible for their valuables.
Anyone who can’t agree a cash deal on the day can opt to take a gamble and sell their items through 1818 Auctioneers in the hope of getting more.
The Barrow items will be sold in a January sale which is expected to be at the firm’s new base near the M6 at Crooklands.
It will be the show’s first visit to Furness and David Dickinson said: “It’s great to bring the show to Barrow, a town we haven’t visited before.
“People of Barrow come along and get the Real Deal.
“I’m very much looking forward to visiting Cumbria, an area of the country I love bringing the show to.
“I remember visiting the area before in a previous series and the quality of items brought in by members of the public was fantastic with lots of history and stories attached to their items.”
Dickinson’s Real Deal is currently the most popular daytime show on ITV and is regularly watched by more than a million people.
It is now back for a ninth series and David Dickinson and the dealers are traveling the country to see items brought in by the public.
