Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Going Flogging

Not S&M, fortunately (not a fan) but the making of a BBC programme called Flog It!

People take their unwanted treasures, where they are valued, and a few selected items taken away to auction.

I found out that they were going to be at London Zoo when a neighbour showed me a painting she wants to sell to raise money for her daughter's new flat. I looked up the artist and the programme venues for her.

Tomorrow we are going along, and I hope they will choose her picture, so that we don't have to lug it all the way home again!

I'm taking along a couple of rings and my grandfather's fob watch, but don't intend to sell them, even though the rings don't even fit my little finger these days. I would like to know how much one ring is worth, though, for insurance purposes, as the last time it was valued, 20-30 years ago, they valued it at £125.

OMG that sounds like a blast!!! I hope her painting sells. It would be interesting for you to know the value of your heirlooms.
