Read up on what sold well, what surprised us and what was that one lot everyone wanted!
Written by our Senior Valuer John Ireland, his sale reports not only make interesting reading with facts and figures for each sale, but are also a useful source of information to keep up with market trends.

Batemans have again been out and about holding regular valuation roadshows. Held at various locations in the surrounding counties it's always really enjoyable to meet everyone that takes the time to come and also facinating to see what treasures they bring.
Most recent valuation days have included Long Sutton, Bourne, Ely, Spalding and Huntingdon.
2013 will again see Batemans playing host to the Bargain Hunt and Antiques Road Trip teams who will be filming with us in our May and August sales.
Presenter Tim Wonnacott and our auctioneer David Palmer will be in front of the camera giving their expert opinions on the items chosen for auction.
Regular viewers of Flog It! will no doubt have noticed that our very own Kate Bateman is now one of the regular on-screen experts for the popular BBC TV programme. Kate is currently filming the new series which is showing now (see dates below), and will appear in approximately nine separate programmes, having traveled from the Isle of Wight to Liverpool for valuation days. Repeats from last series are also regularly shown, as are the BBC Bargain Hunt programmes filmed at Batemans last year, that feature Kate and David Palmer on-screen alongside Host Tim Wonnacott, who was on hand to guide teams who had brought items along in the hopes of selling them for a profit. Some photos from these are included here.
