The winners and losers of Flea Market Flip

If you've ever spent time in a waiting room of a Les Schwab as I have, there is a pretty good chance you have caught an episode of a TV show called Flea Market Flip.

What is Flea Market Flip?

     A game show where 2 teams of 2 friends, couples or pretty much just any 2 people per team. Will face off against each other in a Flea market flip. Both teams pick out potential gold mine refurbishing projects.

The goal is to buy a piece(table, chair, etc.) cheaply or at a good bargain, then use repurposing techniques with a carpenters help to transform it in to a sellable item. The teams get to pick their own items to work on from any seller in the Flea market they happen to be competing at.

Each team is given a theme to follow. Such as modern, vintage and etc. After they are done refurbishing their items they now have to sell them for a profit the next day. When the time run out for the Flea market flip countdown both teams will stand next to the host. 

She chit chats with both teams about their projects and how much money the made or loss for their buy of the piece, the cost of refurbishing it and its final sale price.

Did the team who was talked to first win or lose?

I'm sure most of you would believe that it doesn't really matter who was talked to first. Although I could be entirely wrong and the majority would believe it does matter.
