Gwynedd, UK - Drew Pritchard is currently featured in ten part fly-on-the-wall architectural salvage documentary on Quest whose website states that , 'with demanding customers, high turnover, and one of the biggest decorative salvage yards in the UK, Drew Pritchard is constantly on the road, crisscrossing the country in search of derelict gems and forgotten remnants. Drew loves the thrill of the hunt and while he gets his hands dirty in the country's architectural backwaters, his crack team of restorers is back at the shop giving old and rare finds a new lease on life.'
On this weeks episode Drew bought lampshades and benches from a derelict airfield and a shop display counter and glazed doors from Steptoe's Yard in Montrose (not the Steptoe's Yard in Lancashire), packed a curtainliner for a customer in St Tropez and sold the glazed doors to Maria Speake of Retrouvius. 'Salvage Hunters' gave potted captions of the buy price and sell price with the gross profit made.
The series is made by Cineflix for the Discovery Network and can be seen on Quest on Freeview on Mondays at 9pm - and possibly Saturdays at 7pm.
