Plot Synopsis

Host Lara Spencer assigns two-person teams a "flip list" of projects they need to accomplish to win the competition, and then the two teams have 60 minutes to search flea markets for secondhand items they can buy, fix and flip to turn a profit on their $500 investment. The team that does the best job of turning trash into cash emerges victorious in this winner-takes-all competition, taking home a $5,000 cash prize. Each week, teams explore a different flea market across America, including these venues in Season 1: Stormville Airport Antique Show & Flea Market, where teams shop for design projects that feature a retro inspired design, a fabric project and transforming an eyesore into a chic design; Connecticut's Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market, where teams shop for design projects that involve combining form and function, creating an original piece of art, and fashioning a durable design piece that can withstand the test of time; New York's coolest flea market, Brooklyn Flea, where teams shop for design projects that involve creating lighting fixtures, refurbishing upholstered pieces, and reimagining objects to give them new purpose; Connecticut's Elephant's Trunk Country Flea Market, where teams shop for design projects that involve restoring furniture, repurposing pieces for outdoor living, and creating items for home entertaining; Stormville Airport Antique Show & Flea Market, where teams shop for design projects that involve transforming industrial items into stylish furniture, making seating out of unexpected pieces, and creating a matching set out of mismatched objects; and more contests and these and other flea markets.
