Watch Flea Market Flip

Flea Market Flip is a television reality show that captures the imagination of a variety of fans. The show promotes the re-vamping and re-cycling of items that can be found at local flea markets. It is a twist on those shows where people buy and flip homes for serious profit. In this series the contestants must stretch their dollars and use their imagination to unearth the hidden treasures in those flea market booths, bins, boxes, shelves and bags.

This reality television show is actually a competition to discover who has the best eye for quality and value. Two contestants are assigned to each team. Then these two teams have one hour to buy three items that they must re-purpose and re-sell. Viewers can watch the fun unfold as the teams scour one of their local flea markets in a search for items that they believe will return a profit. Haggling with the sellers is perfectly acceptable as each team tries to fit three items into their budget.

Contestants must then figure out how to transform those bargains into desirable items that customers will buy. Viewers also get to see what the final items look like after they have been renovated by the teams. Next the contestants must bring their re-purposed finds to a flea market and convince people to buy them.

The team that makes the most profit from the sale of their flea market finds will win the game. The winning team also gets all of the profits, which is added incentive to do well in this competition.

This series can be seen on HGTV. The host is Lara Spencer, an avowed flea market shopper. The 2012 television debut proved popular in 2012. The network ordered another 8 episodes of Flea Market Flip for the 2013 season.
