Amazing findsPortobello iz home to hidden treasure as these dealers reveal.

→ "A couple of years ago a chap came in with this portrait and I said 'Oh goodness, what a wonderful Gainsborough'. He had no idea; he put it straight into auction and got a lot of money for it."

→ "Just the other day we spotted a bonfire waiting to be lit and there was a Georgian window seat on it. The owners didn't want it so we grabbed it and sold it for £1,200."

→ "In 1990 one lucky person bought a sketch on an arcade stall, the page turned out to be by Leonardo da Vinci and worth £100,000."

→ "My partner picked a miniature winding staircase out of a skip last year. It was a shop display, painted white and it must have come out of a florist in the 1960s. So I left it out in the garden and it got all rusty. We had 50 people asking after it. We were so pleased when we sold it for £285 - only to discover later that we could have sold it for thousands."

→ "I found a beautiful silver bracelet on a market stall. I bought it for £15.50 but when I took it to be valued it was worth over £160! I didn't sell it though, I gave it to my wife for her birthday - don't tell her!

→ "I once bought a model of a skull from 1850. Every part of the brain was inside: the eyes, the jaw, nerves and everything. I've had a full skeleton of a little baby. That sold to Japan. When we got it it was in bits so we had to pin all the bones together."
