BBC Back at Ottery Auction Rooms
Ottery Auction Rooms on the Finnimore Industrial Estate in the heart of Ottery St Mary will once again roll out the red carpet for the BBC as Bargain Hunt will be filming at the auction house on the viewing day on Wednesday March 2nd and on the sale day itself on Thursday March 3rd .Auctioneer David Sumner was very excited to have them back again albeit with a different show. “I think it was the cream cakes, copious cups of tea and the warm welcome is what drew them back rather than my face” he joked, “ I never got the call from Hollywood after the last time!”.
It is shaping up to be an interesting auction with three famous familiar BBC experts bringing their charm and wit to the local auction room. David has not been told yet who they are so you will all have to wait and see, better still come down to the sale on the view day or sale day and you may even get on the television. The auction rooms will accepting vintage and antique items up until mid-February so it could be possible to have you items in shot on the television and if they are exceptional they may even do a piece just on your item so bring your weird and wonderful collectables and antiques down to the saleroom to have them valued and potentially filmed.
Please note that the sale is on a Thursday not the usual Saturday so make a date in your diary.
