Flog It! Comes to Wiltshire

Dozens of families brought along their treasures when Paul Martin and the Flog It! team visited Wiltshire on Sunday.
The popular show, which was in Melksham, gives people the chance to bring their antiques and treasures along to get them valued by a team of experts, before a selection are picked for auction.
Queues formed as people waited eagerly for a chance to meet the valuers and presenter Paul Martin, who lives in Seend, who were filming the show at the Assembly Hall in Market Place.
Among those to attend was Gill Carwardine from Bristol who is set to sell her board game Totopoly at auction, which will be held at Henry Aldridge & Son in Devizes in January.
Her partner lives in Chippenham and the pair had heard about the show through a newspaper report.
She said: “I bought the game at a car boot sale for £2 a few years ago because I remembered it from when I was a child and thought I would give it a go again.
“It’s quite a complicated horse racing game and the name is a play on Monopoly I think.
“I realised that it might be worth a bit more as the horses are made of metal and not plastic so I took it along and they valued it between £20 and £30.
“We queued for about 45 minutes in the cold, but they were very good and had a great chain of people going through continuously.
“I am very excited and It is going to be broadcast next summer.”
