About The Show

Flea markets are filled with hidden treasures, you just have to know where to look. In Flea Market Flip, two teams go head to head to see who can make the most money transforming unexpected diamonds in the rough into high dollar gems. Each team is given $500 along with a list of items they need to find and buy in one hour. Then they are given one day to transform and one day to sell their refurbished items. The team that makes the most net profit wins $5,000.
