Producers of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, the hit PBS series and forerunner of television’s antiques and collectibles genre. In MARKET WARRIORS, expert shoppers scour flea markets across the country for vintage valuables, selling their finds at auction with an eye towards maximizing profit. In each episode, four pickers travel to different markets across the country to purchase items with a set amount of money, and use their knowledge and skills to see who can make the most profit at auction.
In each episode, four pickers travel to different market locations across the country to purchase certain items with a set amount of money. Viewers will learn not only about different objects and their history; they’ll also see the competitors apply their knowledge and skills to real financial transactions. Along the way, we will get to know our pickers, learn about what they bought and why through individual interviews, and discover the current value of the objects as only the marketplace can determine.
The sale of our pickers’ items takes place at an auction on a different day, in a different location. All four competitors will watch the auctioneer take charge of the bidding and the picker whose objects earn the highest total profit at auction is the winner of that episode.
