From the producers of ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, the hit PBS series and the forerunner of television’s popular antiques and collectibles genre, comes a new adventure for treasure seekers: MARKET WARRIORS.

This series follows antiques pickers—Bob Richter, John Bruno, Kevin Bruneau, and Miller Gaffney—on a nationwide treasure hunt, scouring flea markets for antiques and vintage valuables with an eye toward selling their finds for profit at auction.

Over the course of 20 one-hour episodes, viewers will get to know the pickers, enjoy an up-close look at the fierce competition in each episode and obstacles they face in the marketplace each week, and make their best guesses about who will come out ahead at the end of each episode.

“With MARKET WARRIORS, we wanted to turn the lens on the antiques pickers themselves,” says series executive producer Marsha Bemko. “Our pickers aren’t your amateur weekend-flea-market hobbyists. They are pros looking to turn a profit in a highly competitive setting where the element of chance and a little luck sometimes trump expertise.”

"Antiquing In Cumming, Ga." - In this episode of MARKET WARRIORS, pickers Miller, John, Bob and Kevin encounter some southern hospitality at the Lakewood 400 Antiques Market just outside Atlanta, Georgia. This week’s challenge is to find vintage advertising, and in Coca-Cola country, there’s plenty to find.

Some notable picks include a rare Red Rock Cola piece, a Sterling Card case and an antique hobbyhorse. Their finds are auctioned at Cowan’s Auctions in Cincinnati, Ohio.

This program originally aired on Monday, July 30, 2012.

Up Next: "Antiquing In Brimfield, Mass." will rebroadcast at 9 p.m. on September 3, 2012.
