The Secret Dealers have just one hour in two treasure-filled homes to place secret bids on the antiques and collectibles they most want to buy while the homeowners are away. When the homeowners return, the bids are revealed and they have to make a difficult choice – accept the highest offer, haggle for more money or turn it down completely. It’s a battle between sentiment and cold hard cash. In the first house, homeowner Helen has an eclectic mix of antiques and collectibles. Topping the dealers wishlist is a stunning French nineteenth century gilt mirror, untouched from the day it was made, and a pair of excellent Regency prints on glass from the early eighteen hundreds. Dealers Tim, Karen and David battle it out and have to dig deep into their wallets to try and secure the goods. Alison and Mark join Tim in the second house, which is packed with golden jewelry belonging to homeowner Darren. A rare seventeenth century Charles the Second half crown coin flips the dealers’ lids.
