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.
"Antiquing In Greenwich, N.Y." - This week on MARKET WARRIORS, the pickers head up the Hudson River to Greenwich, New York, to the Washington County Antique Fair, where twice a year the fairgrounds are host to more than 200 vendors and thousands of shoppers.
The pickers have a target assignment to bring back a military object, and one person’s change of mind may cost that person the win.
Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg observes some key finds, which include a Victorian birdcage, a WWII water bag and a German pull toy.
The winning picker is determined at Quinn’s Auction Galleries in Falls Church, Virginia, where their chosen items go under the hammer.
