Market Warriors
Genre: Cultural
Market Warriors is a series in which expert antiques "pickers" embark on a nationwide treasure hunt, scouring flea markets for vintage valuables and selling their finds at auction with an eye toward maximizing profit. These pickers aren't your amateur-weekend-flea-market hobbyists-they are pros, here to compete against each other in a competition that takes us on a cross-country adventure. In each episode, four pickers travel to different market locations across the country to purchase certain items with a set amount of money. We will learn not only about different objects and their history; we'll see the competitors apply their knowledge and skills to real financial transactions. Using individual interviews we will get to know our pickers and learn about what they bought and why. We then will discover the current value of the objects as only the marketplace can determine. The sale of our pickers' items takes place at an auction on a different day, in a different location. Before the auction, we will hear our auction house experts appraise each of these items and their estimates won't always jibe with the dollar value our pickers have attached to these objects. All four competitors will watch the auctioneer take charge of the bidding and the picker whose objects make the highest total profit at auction is the winner of that episode.

Episode #120
Antiquing in Liberty, NC
This week on MARKET WARRIORS, the pickers travel to Liberty, North Carolina, to the Liberty Antique Festival where twice a year, more than 400 dealers pack a farm with antiques and collectibles. The challenge to find a 20th-century American item puts one of the pickers up against the clock. One picker's decision not to budge from a bottom line price point is a game changer. Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg injects quick wit as a rainstorm creates an added challenge for the pickers. Some key finds include two cast iron doorstops, a blanket chest and a metal folk art box. The warriors are additionally challenged when they have less than 24 hours between market and their items hitting the auction block at Ken Farmer Auctions in Radford, Virginia.
