It was a dream come true for me. Marcie urged me to try to get on the show. I really thought there would be no chance at all. Then they emailed us back and asked us to do a Skype interview. Holy cow, I thought for sure there was no way we would be chosen.
Participating on the Show Flea Market Flip
What it’s like being on Flea Market Flip – Part 1 – FunCycled
So, anyway I figured now I can officially share about it on here now that the episode has aired. You can find the episode on my sideboard on Youtube. I will just share some photos of the 3 days we filmed and the background of how we got onto the show and the highlight of it all. I was surprised too when we were filming to find that out as I think I was more excited knowing I would be on an HGTV episode, but all is good. I wanted to make sure we bought the channel though so we could have it on DVR until it officially launches on the website.
The Truth About Flea Market Flip
Then they return to the flea market the next day and try to sell their new creations. Whichever team makes the most money wins. So when we showed up at the Brimfield Antique Show a few weeks ago read more about our Brimfield adventure here and discovered that they were actively filming several Flea Market Flip episodes in our immediate vicinity, we had a mini meltdown. Moments later, they wandered toward us and then stopped immediately next to us as the camera people gave them some helpful feedback, so close that we would have been in the shot had the cameras been running.
Here's the premise: two teams of two are given a limited amount of time and bucks to buy three pieces of furniture at a flea market. They take one day to completely rehab them and transform them, according to a rotating set of assigned design themes, into something creative and new, and then try to make the biggest profit by reselling them at a flea market the next day. Sound interesting? It is! If you're design-obsessed like me, HGTV's Flea Market Flip provides an excellent opportunity to relax with a glass of wine in your hand, and spend 30 minutes alternately shouting at the TV and your watching partner about what you would do differently, or about how awesome something looks.
