'Flog It' at Rose's Books
On July 21st we at Rose's Books were delighted to have a visit from the film crew of the antiques TV show "Flog It!"
The show is presented by Paul Martin and invites members of the public to bring along collectable items for valuation by the programme's experts. The items are then put into auction with the owners hoping to realise the valuation prices.
Hay-On-Wye had been selected for a special feature within one of these programmes and Rose's Books was invited to participate. Paul interviewed Maria Goddard, proprietor of Rose's Books. The team spent some time filmiing around the shop and Paul was particularly enamoured with our collection of Ladybird Books, some of which he remembered from his childhood.
The show will be aired later this year. Rose's is the Hay branch of Stella & Rose's Books and stocks 12,000 rare and out-of-print children's and illustrated books.
