Pick up some picker lingo before your next antiques adventure.
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, the pickers head to Rochester, Minnesota, to the annual Gold Rush Olmsted County market, where the pickers are paired up to find something French and one picker struggles to make it through the round.
Some key finds include a Chinese sandalwood box, an antique radio and a Limoges landscape painting. One picker strikes gold with a bidder from China taking part at Ken Farmer Auctions in Radford, Virginia, where all of this week’s items are auctioned.
Past episodes of MARKET WARRIORS are available for online viewing.
