The team from the popular TV show, Antiques Road Trip, recently filmed an episode on Mendip attending the Mendip Auction Rooms. Celebrity valuers Timothy Medhurst and Christina Trevanion had spent the previous week shopping in the South of England prior to sending the items to the Killens team at Binegar to be sold at auction.
Items entered by the valuers included a satsuma bowl, military ephemera and a pair of wooden candlesticks. Profits were made and all will become clear when the episode is screened later in the year.
Tom Killen, who conducted the auction, said “we were delighted to welcome Christina, Tim and the Antiques Road Trip team to the Mendip Auction Rooms once again. The celebrities always set us a challenge in trying to make a profit on the items that they buy but the producers were delighted with how the filming went and have confirmed that they will be back later in the year.”
