The first of two programmes made by “Flog It” at Rye Auction Galleries last September is scheduled to be screened on a weekday afternoon in mid January. The programme, which features presenter Paul Martin and his team of experts who invite members of the public to bring their antiques to be viewed and valued, with an option to sell at auction has called on the Rye Galleries once before. This was two years ago when one of the best editions they had ever produced was filmed. This programme has been aired as many as two dozen times World wide. Rye Auctioneer Andrew Paine was interviewed by Paul Martin who asked his opinion of the price each item would reach. The saleroom was packed on the day of the sale causing traffic jams in the car park. Prices were brisk with most of the ‘Flog It’ lots reaching their expected value, some went well beyond.
