Antiques enthusiasts and opportunist floggers turned out in force to barter a ‘real deal’ with daytime telly’s golden boy David Dickinson.
Film crews for ITV’s much-loved programme Dickinson’s Real Deal rolled into Buxton’s Pavilion Gardens on Saturday for the show – which saw hundreds of people bidding to flog their wares in exchange for a cash bounty.
Host David Dickinson was on top form, chatting with the sellers and, as ever, pitched in to help contestants barter for the best price from the show’s dealers.
The biggest deals on the day were when Karen Dalmeny paid £1,300 for a World War II medal collection, Michael Hogben shelled out £680 for some gold jewellery, and Jan Keyne spent £450 on a Rolex watch.
A spokesman for the programme said: “We had a fantastic day at Buxton on Saturday.
“Despite the weather, it was a great turn- out and some exciting items came in which caught the dealers and David’s attention.”
A total of four programmes were made in Buxton, which usually air within a year of the filming.
