Experts James Braxton and Isabel Balmer will travel to Lowestoft in a classic car as they look to spend a £200 budget on antiques and collectibles which will then be sold at auction.
The sypnosis for Thursday's BBC One programme states: "Izzie and James visit the most easterly town in the country.
"Izzie potters about in Lowestoft learning about the porcelain 'trifles' manufactured for the 18th-century tourist trade, while James goes crabbing.
"True to form, Izzie just can't resist the attractions of chairs - Edwardian and Georgian.
"And James can't say no to a gigantic wine rack to go with his French cafe table.
"James is all fired up by a cannonball from a 1672 naval battle, and Izzie is charmed by an art deco necklace.
