TWO TV personalities hunted through a range of antiques and retro goods during their visit to a vintage warehouse in Bournemouth yesterday.

Phillip Serrell, presenter of BBC’s Antiques Road Trip, was joined by celebrity guest, broadcaster, journalist and presenter of Countryside, John Craven, as they participated in the programme, which was filmed at Molly’s Den, on Francis Avenue.

Steve Tydeman, assistant manager of Molly’s Den, said: “We were really pleased to have them here. When we received an email about a week ago saying that they wanted to film the programme here, we jumped at the chance.

“They just had to look around and find some things which were unusual, which they could then sell at auction.

“If they needed any help, we were only too happy to be on hand, but otherwise we left them to it. We were delighted to have them here.

“I spoke to John Craven for a little while and he was also very happy to have pictures taken.”

Antiques Road Trip sees a pair of experts take a road trip across the UK in a selection of classic cars, with Phillip and John taking to a Mercedes 250SE. The pair will then compete against each another to make the most money buying antiques before selling them at auction, which they have purchased under a strict budget.

Molly’s Den hosts over 200 traders offering a range of furniture, records, glassware, toys, homeware, collectables and more across two floors at their base in Wallisdown, with a second warehouse in New Milton.

The company is also set to open a third venue, which will open its doors on Saturday, August 2, and will see all three warehouses host a day of entertainments and events in celebration of the success of Molly’s Den.

I love going to Molly's Den - always find something interesting, even if it's only a paperback book.

A cross between a charity shop and an indoor car boot sale with the ever present smell of old mens pants coming from the vintage clothes.
