Had a really good day today.Paul Laidlaw from Antiques Road Trip came to film and he chose some great items and drove a very hard bargain.
The road trip have filmed twice this year so soon I will be on TV all the time as they keep repeating the programmes.Shame they don't pay lol
Hope you are all surviving the heat.

I'm surprised anyone in the antique business makes a living.
Most of what we see is dealers paying very little and selling at a loss. It must be a smoke screen.

The thing is, with these shows they are only dealing in knick knacks. The real money is in Fine Art and Furniture and items of that sort.

I don't know why you haven't done anything all day.

I suppose the dealers must have shops that we don't get to see and the rest are auctioneers who get paid from both sides.
It's a bit like estate agencies, the profit comes from getting things to change hands.
