Sag Harbor artist and, more recently, actor Peter Buchman is a contestant in the Season 3 finale of Flea Market Flip on Great American Country channel this Sunday, October 5 at 8 p.m. The show—hosted by flea market aficionado, Hamptons regular and Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer—challenges two teams of two creative flea market shoppers to purchase a variety of items, repurpose them into artistic up-cycled furniture and decor, and resell them at another flea market. The team who earns the highest profit wins!
Buchman’s appearance in Season 3, Episode 14: “Full Contact Flipping” pits him and pal Ron against Kim, a professional female football player and her best friend Leslie, who both share a love for flea markets. Each team is given $500 and only an hour to shop at the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, Connecticut for worn-out pieces to fix-up and flip. Their creations must fall into the categories “Unexpected Seating,” “Vintage Modern,” and a “Paper” project.
After scoring some great deals at the flea market, both teams get their hands dirty, with the help of show assistants, in the workshop, in hopes of bringing their big ideas to life, and flea market gold!
The teams will hit the field once again, as they head to sell at New York’s Long Island City Flea. When the clock expires the team that makes the biggest profit wins $5,000.
Buchman is known for his work featuring his take on Americana, which often uses antiques, ephemera and found objects, so he should have the right aesthetic to be victorious. Watch GAC this Sunday, October 5 at 8 p.m. to see if our local boy prevails!
The show will also air at 10 p.m. on Sunday, October 5 and again October 05 at midnight and 2 a.m. It is scheduled to re-air on Sunday, October 12 at 8:30 p.m.
