Tracy's vast knowledge extends to many antique and collectable subjects, including 20th Century interiors, ceramics, glass, toys, vintage fashion, shoes and handbags. Tracy knows instinctively what to buy now as a collectable of the future as well as identifying new trends, and advising on which of those 20th Century treasures are now highly prized. She has so much to say on 20th-21st century collectables and she delivers the information in a way that really hooks the viewer, listener and reader. She is highly respected in the antiques and collectables industry by fellow experts, auctioneers, dealers and collectors.
She has appeared on numerous television programmes an on-screen expert for BBC Flog it! The Paul O Grady Show, Chanel 4.s Sunday Brunch, The One Show, Market Kitchen, BBC Breakfast and has been the resident Antiques and Collectables Expert on ITV's This Morning for the past 18 months.
Author of 'The Greatest Collecting Tips in the World,' and 'Christmas Collectables' (the first ever UK book dedicated to collecting Christmas memorabilia) Tracy's most recent books are 'Collectable Names in Women's Fashion, Past and Present.' and the latest book 'The Little Black Dress' which was released in September 2012.
Tracy is also in much demand as a passionate, enthusiastic and humorous speaker, and she loves nothing sharing her knowledge and experiences which include the astonishing items people find at car boots sales, items we should have kept but like most people have thrown away and the astonishing prices the most unlikely items can realise at auction.
Another area Tracy is fascinated with is the social history behind collectables. She loves to know how they evolved, how they impacted on society and why now they are an important part of our everyday lives.
