Treasure hunters embark on an antiques adventure in MARKET WARRIORS, a new series from the 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.
This week on MARKET WARRIORS, pickers Miller, John, Bob and Kevin head to the Brimfield, Massachusetts, home of the largest outdoor market in the world. The pickers struggle to find the right items to sell at Cowan’s Auction in Cincinnati, Ohio. As part of the challenge this week, the pickers are teamed up and tasked with finding art glass among the market’s 6,000 vendors. Some notable picks include examples of Bohemian art glass, a vintage scale and a handmade dollhouse.
