Join us for a new 10-part series, based around a retro treasure hunt through some of Australia’s most beautiful destinations culminating in an auction showdown where the winner is revealed.

Starring internationally famous English TV personality and antiques and collectables expert Eric Knowles and the doyen of Australian antique dealers Alan Carter. Both men are great friends - and fierce competitors. They're going head to head to see who can make the most money from scouring hundreds of collectable shops and markets along the east coast of Australia.

Starting in Sydney and the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, then on to Australia’s Capital Canberra, and finally right up the coast to Queensland, the Sunshine State. Alan and Eric have to out-bargain, out-smart and ultimately out-sell each other in the brand new series ‘The Clash of the Collectables.’

Learn the secrets from two super dealer-makers as they work out what to buy - and why. Plus, find out how to get the best bargains, and spot the new trends in collectables. There will be surprises - and shocks - as hundreds of lots are sold and the results are tallied to find out who will ultimately win and who gets blown away in ‘The Clash of the Collectables’…it’s not over until the final hammer falls.
