When a Salvage Hunter researcher stopped to say hello at one of our events who would have thought that Drew and Tee could come to visit us in late March 2020. At the time, Covid 19 was just hitting us all and, as we bumped elbows awkwardly, we couldn't imagine that it would be 18 months before we saw the results of the filming. After so much has happened, we are, at last, going to see the final cut.
Once we got started, it is very much like you see on TV; Drew and Tee only enter the Retrobarn for the first time when the cameras start rolling. Drew Pritchard is a wealth of information having been in the business for many years. He was very happy to share his knowledge and experience with us on the day and has continued to support and mentor us since.
The Salvage Hunters Crew were brilliant! Funny, professional and great to work with.
The Retrobarn is an ever changing collection of eclectic English antiques and salvage, all sourced from around the country.
We were delighted that he found some real gems in our barn and we were happy to do a deal.
You will have to tune in at 9pm on the Quest channel, on Wednesday 20th October to see what Drew brought from us. It's series 15, episode 12 if your watching on catch up!
We have been on a journey since starting to deal in antiques and the Salvage Hunters' visit was a key part of that journey.
We have continued that development since the episode was filmed and Drew has become a firm friend, mentor and customer.
As a parting gift, Drew presented Dawn with her own 'dealer' cap. She was bowled over to be crowned 'a dealer' on the day and we continue to try to develop as dealers.
All of our thanks go to the whole production team for an amazing experience,
Dawn & Steve xx
