About the Show

Flea Market Flip shows viewers how a little cash can go a long way with the right amount of creativity. Each week a plethora of amazing items will be showcased by our teams as they creatively use their eye for style and some elbow grease to turn these leftovers into a main course by the show's conclusion. Given only $500, our Flea Market Flip contestants will scour the booths and tents in search of items they can buy, fix and then flip for a higher sum. With each team battling it out to win all of the profits earned that day, the true winner will be the viewer at home, who will have a variety of exciting ideas to inspire them as they begin their next project around their own home!
