Motivational Story of James Lewis:
James Lewis, has been buying and selling antiques since he was a very young child, making his ﬁrst purchase of an English Pocket Watch whilst on a family holiday at the tender age of just 5 years old. So it was inevitable that he would one day head up one of the top auction houses in the UK and become a regular antiques expert on our TV screens with shows such as,Bargain Hunt, Flog it, Antiques Road Trip, ‘Put your money where your mouth is’ to name but a few.
Things however could have been very different. After spells working at Christies and other auction houses across the East Midlands, in 2002 James was made redundant. Since then, James has never looked back. Within 2 weeks he was approached and successfully screen tested by the BBC and set up his own auction house along with his father.
Now after 25 years in the business he has been instrumental in establishing Derbyshire as a centre for antiques by opening Bamfords 2nd auction house in Bakewell and taking the company from 493rd nationally, into the top 10. James has been personally recognised for his talents by being voted Auctioneer of the Year 3 years in succession.
Now a familiar face on our TV screens, James appears as a regular expert on no less than 8 BBC shows, where some of his recent ﬁnds have helped rise over £7000 for the Royal Derby Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. James ﬁnds time, in his very busy schedule, to support, campaign and work for a number of local and national charities – the proceeds of this event will be donated to The Born Free Foundation.
