KQED 9: Mon, Jan 28, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

Miller, John, Bob and Kevin head out to Canton, Texas, home to First Monday Trade Days - a large outdoor monthly market with a mixture of antiques and new wares. The challenge to find authentic Mission Oak furniture amid the recently made crafts puts one picker up against the clock. Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg injects quick wit and a collector's know-how as the pickers scour the market for key finds, which include a pair of Knoll Chairs, a Bostrom Brady Surveying Tool and an antique document box. The winning picker is determined at A.N. Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles, California, where chosen items go under the hammer.

Antiquing In New Milford, CT (Episode #112H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jan 21, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

Pickers Miller, John, Bob and Kevin head to New Milford, Connecticut, home to Elephant Trunk Country Flea Market, a weekly sale that starts at the crack of dawn and where the pickers are challenged to find something metal. Off screen host Mark L. Walberg comments on the wide array of items found, from a vintage toy truck to a coffee grinder. Pickers find themselves up against closing time as they scour the market to find items before the dealers pack up. Some notable finds include a pyrography chair and a slant front desk. In the Shop 'Til You Stop round, pickers Bob and John duke it out to determine who has first dibs on an antique butter churn. This week's items are sent to Ken Farmer's Auctions in Radford,Virginia, where the pickers find themselves neck-and-neck until the end.

Antiquing In Chicago, Il (Episode #114H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jan 14, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

The pickers head to the Randolph Street Market in Chicago, Illinois, where the target assignment is to find something from the 1970s. One picker runs out of time as another intentionally tries to hoodwink his opponents about an item made three decades later. Off-screen host provides the play-by-play on his outrageous bluffing. Pickers also try to sell items bought at a previous flea market. Notable finds include a pair of mid-century fiberglass chairs, a modern coffee table and an Aunt Jemima clock. The winning picker is determined at A. N. Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles, California.

Antiquing In Walnut, Ia (Episode #113H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jan 7, 2013 -- 9:00 PM

The pickers head to Walnut, Iowa, to the Walnut Antique Show, with a new competitor in the mix. The target assignment is gold, and Mark L. Walberg injects some quick wit when one of the pickers goes for a broad interpretation the others aren't buying. A sudden rainstorm that causes most of the dealers to close down shop helps determine who wins and loses. Some key finds include a Herman Miller chair, an aluminum plane and a piece of tramp art (a woodcutting style that involves layers of whittled pieces). The winning picker is determined at A.N. Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles, California, where the chosen items go under the hammer.
