BBC Antiques Road Trip stars find ‘unusual’ items in Barbican Market
The team for the popular BBC show Antique’s Road Trip visited Plymouth’s Antiques and Collectibles Market this week, where experts were looking for unique items to auction.
The 27 New Street Market was closed to the public for half a day so stars Jason Braxton and Natasha Raskin Sharp could enjoy their antique shopping while filming a new episode.
The ‘beautiful’ pair arrived in style on Monday in a classic red Porsche, photographed by people who gathered outside to meet popular antique dealers.
Jason and Natasha clashed to find the most valuable and interesting items inside, and with their expert knowledge, they didn’t walk out of the market empty-handed.
Although the items ripped off cannot be specified for the purpose of the show, John Cabello, the owner of Parade Antiques and Collectables Market, said he was “confident” the couple would make a profit on the treasures they found. .
“I don’t know if I can say what they bought,” he said. “They tend to show this on TV and therefore what I will say is that they both bought unusual items which will hopefully make a profit at auction.
“In fact, I’m very confident they will because there were some great items. We did our best to help them.”
John also said BBC stars Jason and Natasha have stayed longer than expected to talk to fans about their popular daytime TV program.
They spent time with those waiting outside, toured the complex, and took lots of photos with the bright red Porsche.

“They were adorable,” John said.
“They were kind enough to walk into the complex to go to the other stores and have their pictures taken and just show interest in what people were doing. So it was a very nice day and a very good atmosphere. “
Although the expensive red Porsche was a good feast for the eyes, according to John, it made some very questionable noises, and the handbrake wasn’t the best. But luckily, it’s more for the show than the driving.
“It kinda looked like it needed a little TLC,” John said. But, you know, it looks fantastic.
“And it’s bright red. I think it’s kind of a ’70s or’ 60s or early ’80s or early’ 80s Porsche, which is quite a bit of money. It looked very, Dear.”
Natasha Raskin Sharp specializes in art history and even spoke to John’s son, who owns a gallery in the complex, to discuss their interests.
