How many of you watch tv shows about auctions or flea markets or treasure hunting?
The present day Pawn Stars is definitely Las Vegas.
His page is very interesting and talks about other shows he is involved with, including more treaure hunting shows. If you have seen any I would love to hear your opinion.
TLC channel had plans for a show entitled Auctioneer$ but from what I can see it was cancelled after only one episode aired.
However Discovery Channel is airing a similar show titled Auction Kings.
A new show I hope to see this week is called Hollywood Treasures on the SyFy channel.
(Also airing on USA network.)
It caught my eye because one episode features Dawn Wells, MaryAnn from Gilligan’s Island.
I have heard rumors that American Pickers producers are working on a show called
American Treasures. They also produce A Dog’s Life.
Someone else wants to do a show called American Treasure Hunt,
about things sold off from abandoned or unpaid storage units.
Spike tv will air a new show this month called Auction Hunters also about things found in storage units. They claim that “every day in America there are over 10,000 storage units auctioned off.”
What shows did I leave off this list?
Which were your favorites?
What was your favorite find or best Flip (trash turned to cash)?
If asked, would you host or be on a thrifty or treasure hunting show?
Many apologies for not mentioning the grandfather of antiques shows
Antiques Roadshow with U.S., Canadian and U.K. versions.
To make this a true thrifting post, I will add that my tv on which I watch these shows cost me $3. However many of the shows are also available to watch online.
