What it’s like being on Flea Market Flip
What it’s like being on Flea Market Flip. We were on HGTV’s Flea Market Flip competition and the show aired on March 1st showing that WE WON!
Fun isn’t even a good enough word to describe what it was like being on the show. It was a dream come true for me. I’d been watching the show for years with my friend, Marcie. We would eat ice cream and drink coffee until all hours of the night watching one DVR’d episode after episode. Marcie urged me to try to get on the show. I really thought there would be no chance at all. We emailed the casting crew and didn’t hear anything back for about 4-5 months. Holy cow, I thought for sure there was no way we would be chosen.
