"A very silly Goon-style sitcom" set in an antiques shop starring Blackadder actor Tim McInnerny.

Sassy, cutting, clever, perceptive and in desperate need of a job, Faye Chambers is new to the antiques shop team. She joins Rupert Bull, an old school bounder and cad who has somehow managed to survive into the 21st century, and Toby Atkins, his useless but enthusiastic assistant manager.

Rupert won the shop in a poker competition many years ago, and sees it as little more than a way to make a fast buck. In this pilot episode, the immeasurably lovely local shop-owner Mr Richards has a set of priceless Faberge eggs that need restoring.
