Experts Will Axon and Thomas Plant join Paul Martin at the seaside, as Flog It! becomes the new attraction at Southend-on-Sea. Funds for a student are needed from the sale of Will's star find - a Delftware bowl. But it's a lighter abandoned in a drawer that really lights up the auction.
Paul heads to the local museum to see a collection of iconic homewares made in Southend. He meets one of the factory employees and learns what it was like to work at this close-knit and award-winning company that also put Southend on the map.
