Antiquities Road Trip Expert ‘Gives Up’ After Damaged Vase Makes No Profit | Television and radio | Show biz & TV
During an episode of BBC program, Journey on the antiques route, experts Natasha Raskin Sharp and Steven Moore embarked on their road trip in a Rolls Royce from the 1960s to the Scottish borders. Before they even started, it was clear the two pundits wanted to win the competition as they clashed in the bidding war. However, Steven didn’t get the best start after failing to make a profit on a damaged umbrella vase he found during his search.
At the start of the program, it was revealed that Natasha had Â£ 186.10 to spend on items, while Steven had Â£ 290.76 to spend.
âSteven, you’re loaded,â Natasha commented as they began their journey to their first auction.
“Weighted down with money,” he joked, adding, “Money in cash.”
The couple began their research in North Yorkshire and traveled across the country before eventually crossing the border into Scotland..

The experts then set off in search of five unique items that they hoped to make a lot of money at auction.
âWhat do you think of the auction? Natasha asked her co-star before the online auction started and he replied, âWe’re about to find out, aren’t we? Anytime now.
Natasha’s first item to be auctioned was a Victorian brass kettle which she bought for Â£ 40.
However, much to Natasha’s disappointment, the item sold for what she paid for, meaning she made no profit.
Much to Steven’s horror, things started to improve for Natasha after she bought jewelry, which she bought with a profit of Â£ 20.
However, his next item of a twin brass bell, which is bought for Â£ 19.90, made him a profit of Â£ 10.10.
Just when the expert thought things were getting better for him, Steven’s next post, A Damaged Umbrella Stand, didn’t turn a profit.
The auctioneer started auctioning the vase for Â£ 10, although Steven bought it for Â£ 40.
In the end, the stand sold at auction for Â£ 10, which cost the antiques expert Â£ 10.
As Steven let out another big sigh, Natasha commented, “I haven’t seen it, but I think it deserved more.”
Steve just put his hands up and sighed again as if he had completely given up.
Despite losing earlier in the auction, Steven came out on top and won the competition after making a profit of Â£ 97.60.
