Bushwood Antiques welcomed celebrity auctioneer Tim Wonnacott to its Gaddesden Lane base in September.
The visit was aired on BBC1 on Thursday and Friday (October 30 and 31) as part of popular daytime show Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
Mr Wonnacott was challenged to purchase items worth hundreds of pounds and make a profit by selling them on to Bushwood Antiques.
Sales manager Julie Collins said: “Tim was pitted against another dealer and they had to see who could make the most profit on their items.
“That money is then given to charity.
“He won the challenge with a Victorian white marble clock which he made around 150 profit on.
“It was very nice to have him here.”
Bushwood’s managing director, Tony Bush, launched the business 35 years ago and the store currently has more than 8,500 pieces of English and Continental furniture in stock
He said: “Any visit from Tim and a chance to promote my antiques warehouse on TV can only be very good for business.”
