Flea market junkie Dominic Johnson-Hill takes us on a journey to find captivating curios and antiques, both valuable and intriguing! It can be like finding a needle in a haystack, but whatever happens it’s a road trip that Dominic always gets a kick out of. Flea markets are haunts for colourful characters from all walks of life. Dominic gets a different peek at history via its collectors and their prized possessions. In modern Singapore, he discovers a secret connection to WWII POWs and the city’s thriving underground vintage culture. Behind Tokyo’s polite veneer, Dominic unravels the intense Japanese fixations with old boy’s toys – Godzilla figures, anime toys and Samurai swords. He jets off to Mumbai to be dazzled by Bollywood’s history and in China he digs out hidden stores of antique furniture, while in India he unravels the remnants of the riches of its textile past.
