If all the sellers of Deal concluded seem to have good memories of their time on the show, not all of them are doing good business! This Monday, May 9, 2022, a certain Catherine had to give up her bathroom set for a derisory sum. But not enough to make him lose his enthusiasm. A reaction that was much appreciated by Internet users …
A new week of auctions began on France 2. This Monday, May 9, 2022, Deal concluded presented by Sophie Davant was broadcast like every afternoon, the time of two episodes. The opportunity for loyal viewers to attend great battles in the auction room. Thus, Djamel Bentenah fought tooth and nail against Michel Bimier, a new buyer of the show, to afford a silver metal cup signed Christofle. This was purchased for 660 euros.
During the second episode, a work from Biarritz was the object of all desires: a pastel from the 70s by Delphin Enjolras, representing a portrait of a naked woman lounging near a fireplace. While the paintings often have trouble getting all the buyers to agree, the latter with “frankly remarkable technique” according to the auctioneer Marie Renoir, pushed them all to bid. Everyone appreciated the effects of light and transparency as well as the femininity that emanated from the whole. Estimated at 1500 euros, it finally reached the sum of 3250 euros to the delight of its ex-owner named Adrien.

But among all the anonymous sellers of the day, some were a little less lucky than him: this was the case of Catherine, a 62-year-old Northerner who came with a vintage-style bathroom set: wall lights, a small sink , or even a mirror. “My daughter has just bought an old building in its original condition, which has been stripped […] It was the downstairs toilet” explained the saleswoman. Although the set included earthenware entirely painted by hand and came from a large Lille house, the Maurice Herbeau founded in 57, the auctioneer Harold Hessel s quickly showed pessimism. “It’s going to be difficult,” he announced, explaining that the whole thing was no longer up to date. “The mirror alone can perhaps find a buyer […] The pair of sconces, it’s going to be complicated and I don’t know who may be interested in the sink”, he regretted, offering a very low estimate of 50 euros.
A sum that shocked viewers. According to them, the seller would have had an interest for this price to go through other channels, such as a second-hand store or even a flea market. Alternatives that would have also avoided the trip…
But never mind, Catherine very happy to participate in the show, did not look particularly upset. In the auction room, his set did not really raise the crowds as announced by Harold. It was Johan Hennart, also a Northerner, who won the bid for 100 euros. “A deal concluded with a Lille resident is wonderful […] I am delighted with this sale, the product is going back to Lille, it’s perfect”, rejoiced the saleswoman who was decidedly very positive. “We could have called each other directly for the delivery” then joked Johan Hennart. On twitter, Catherine’s endearing attitude has greatly pleased Internet users, who often complain about buyers who are a little too greedy… Some have even thought of awarding her a “fair play bonus”.
