Digging around in rubbish dumps doesn't sound like a fun day out to most of us, but Samantha Gasela is the exception. She joins the team to talk about her family's antique bottle collection. Her dad started his bottle collecting/digging in the early 1980s, looking for little bottles for Sam's mom to paint. He then discovered the world of antique bottles. She says it can be quite a dirty and hard job, but it's so satisfying when a beautiful relic is found intact. Brought to you by The South African Gold Coin Exchange (SAGCE) & The Scoin Shop.
