A DEALER from an Oxford antiques emporium is to become a star of the small screen.

Last year it was feared that 30 specialist dealers from Antiques on High in High Street would have to find a new home after business owner and book dealer Tony Sloggett decided to trade only online.

Then in October Vincent Page, from Dorset, came forward to take over the business and the centre’s future was secured.

Caroline Henney, who runs an antique jewellery business and is based at the centre, is to appear on Friday in a new BBC TV show, which will raise funds for charity.

She said: “The series is being shown daily on weekdays at 3.45pm to 4.30pm on BBC 1.

“It is called Flipping Profit and over its run it pits an antiques expert against a market trader and an up-cycler to see who can buy and sell to return the highest profit.

“With all the money going to BBC Children in Need this show should be a winner.”

Ms Henney was filmed with TV antiques expert Caroline Hawley.

Miss Hawley is an auctioneer and appears regularly on long-established antiques programmes including Flog It.

Ms Henney added: “Caroline Hawley got in touch with me because of my online vintage costume jewellery business bagthejewels.co.uk as she had jewellery-related items she thought I might buy from her.

“I was keen to snap them up and one of the items will be available for sale soon.”
