Antiquing In Liberty, Nc (Episode #120H)
KQED 9: Mon, Apr 22, 2013 -- 9:00 PM
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.
