Market Warriors: Antiquing In Burlington, Ky.
Airs Monday, January 28, 2013 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV
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.
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 Burlington, Ky." - This week on MARKET WARRIORS, pickers Miller, John, Bob and Kevin are off to the races at the Burlington Antique Show in Burlington, Kentucky, where they visit a well-known gem of a market. The pickers are challenged with discovering unique lighting among the 200 vendors.
A pair of mid-century lamps invites some conversation. Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg points out notable picks that include a Marilyn Monroe thermometer, a pair of mid-century modern chairs and a chrome headboard. Their finds are auctioned at A.N. Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles.
This episode originally aired in October 2012.
