French Collection 2015

In October of 2015, I was very lucky to film an episode of the Channel 4 TV programme, French Collection made by Reef Television and hosted by antiques expert Mark Franks.

In the programme, Brits with an ‘eye for a deal’ spend a day at a French market, with 800 Euros to spend and dealer Mark to help them.

I went to Beziers with my fellow contestants Lorna and Tracy buying a variety of unusual items and stumbling through deals with my very limited French!

Back in the UK I had one day to upcycle some of my purchases with the help of two friends before selling them on in Bristol.

The whole experience was amazing if a little surreal being in the strange world of TV!
