When Philip Serrell - now well known for his television appearances - gave up teaching to become a professional auctioneer, he thought he was embarking on a sensible and safe career . . . a quiet life in the country with no surprises. In THE AUCTIONEER'S LOT we found out how wrong he was. SOLD TO THE MAN WITH THE TIN LEG Philip describes more of his extraordinary experiences as a country auctioneer, aided and abetted by some of the most colourful characters Worcestershire has to offer. From dodgy cars to fakes in the saleroom; angry livestock, mangled silverware and tortuous - not to mention muddy - experiences in local markets and farm sales, Philip has been there, done that and got the hoofprints on his suit to prove it. And of course, there's the returnAna€n Philip's tin-legged boss . . .As I wandered around the saleroom I practised under my breath: a#39;Ten pounds bid , fifteen, twenty now, and five, thirty, thirtyfive, any ... It was time to raid my fathera#39;s wardrobe. ... I got up early on sale day and carefully donned my new attire.
