Pickers Miller, John, Bob and Kevin are in the city of brotherly love working in close quarters at the 60-vendor Phila Flea Market. Working within their fixed budgets, the challenge is to find costume jewelry with an eye toward selling their finds for profit at auction. In this week’s episode, one picker will make a fatal mistake. Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg points out some notable picks including a set by the French jeweler Marcel Boucher and additional items such as a Playboy ice bucket and a Japanese mixed metal vase. It becomes clear whose strategy is working best when the items are auctioned at A.N. Abell Auction Company in Los Angeles.
