Pictures of me with some of my Fans, along with some interesting additions!
Hot off the blocks and one of the first people to meet up with David Dickinson and the Real Deal team recently was Hayley Sharpe who went along to a Dickinson's Real Deal filming at the Lincolnshire Showground.
Hayley and a bunch of her friends were delighted to spend time chatting with David so they sent in this 'fantastic' photo and in return David made sure they each received an autographed photo to thank them for their support. That's what we call the Real Deal!
Filming for the latest series of Dickinson's Real Deal sees David Dickinson attending dealer days and auctions up and down the country to ensure another batch of entertaining and informative shows. If you have a photograph of David taken at a Dickinson's Real Deal day, why not send it into us and we will do our best to include it in this new Dickinson's Real Deal Section.
Fans catch up with David Dickinson all over the place. Nick Banks was enjoying a beach holiday in Barbados, when he spotted David. Nick was quick to bag himself a rare, quality souvenir - this fab photo of himself and the Duke. Thanks for sending the photo in Nick we hope you had a crackin' time.
Laura Williams (Chaddertonian born and bred) has sent in this quirky little limerick, why not submit a limerick of your own about David Dickinson?
To Dave (the legend)
There was a young man named Dave,
who loved the antiques rave,
he shouted 'cheap as chips',
now I'll make you some tips,
and give you a jolly old wave
US fans have been watching 'Dealing with Dickinson' and David Hunt sent in this short rhyme to celebrate:
When asked about the price on a lot.
There’s profit to be made on the spot.
So you have a good feeling?
It’s with Dickinson you're dealing!
And at the end, there’ll be gold in the pot.
Big David Dickinson fan Marie remembers a favourite episode from the original seriesof Dickinson's Real Deal, in which David found himself begging on bended knee for the auctioneer to accept an item for auction. The mug brought in by a lady named Rashida. It was all good fun and when Rashida's mug failed to make it's reserve David even dug deep and gave her some of his own money.
Quite frankly, I don’t know what’s wrong with me,
I’m healthy, I’m sane, but just recently
Something has started to happen to me,
Starts at two thirty until half past three.
Stood there lookin like you ain’t kiddin,
If you was selling, boy I’d be biddin!
In a room full of people all shouting out loud,
I spot you a mile off , you stand out in a crowd
With those boyish good looks and suits done to a tee
I reject the “old tat”. I can spot quality.
Stood up, sat down your look sure does please, but
None more so than when you’re on your knees.
You begged the 'okshuneer' to take Rashidas old pot,
Oh David that was not “a crackin lot”.
But when I saw you on that day,my own knees very nearly gave way.
I’d turn into a jibbering wreck, Mike could keep his Gregory peck
If I could see you in the flesh. I jest you not, this is no foolery,
I’ll cross my heart on Ian's jewellery!
There's just one thing I'd love, you see,
That’s for you to sign your autobiography
And for me to stand next to the legend that is Davy D.
Generous Marie bid and won both the autographed photo's recently auctioned on Ebay for the charity National Institute for the Blind as advertised on our site.
Sinead Harvey has cherished this photo of herself and David Dickinson, taken in Liverpool, for many years - much to the envy of her friends, only now Sinead has told us a secret, we couldn't possibly comment but is that the Real Deal Dickinson? What do you think viewers?? Thanks Sinead, great craic!
Night of a Thousand Dave's? Well, about thirty at least!
Johnathan Crawford is a final year design student at Edinburgh College of Art, and was the proud host of a special Christmas party. The invitations demanded that everyone come dressed as David Dickinson.
Here are some selected images from the party featuring Jon (in the pink shirt) his girlfriend Helen and his mate Dan (as auctioneer's assistant). Jon says 'The party involved a live auction and the whole bash went down a storm. Nothing like 30 dukes in a room at once... 'This was an excellent effort by Jon and his friends who were rewarded with a really fun night.
