BBC Bargain Hunt auction house Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers – Charles Hanson
Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers are featured on The BBC Bargain Hunt series. In case you are not familiar with the show two teams consisting of two members each compete to buy 3 antiques items and sell them for a profit at a general auction.

The auction houses vary from game to game and these blogs catalogue them in order for you to be able to sell or buy at these popular auctions.
(Many now have live online auctions which can be a good way to rest the market).
