You know those kids who audition for American Idol and get all teary-eyed about how they have always dreamed about getting on the show? Well I used to think they might be a little dramatic until I saw Flea Market Flips! And now I am beginning to dream of my husband and I going on Flea Market Flips! What do I do to get on that show?

Hi
All I can suggest is to get in touch with HGTV asap. I am one of the four "fix it" people from the show & I can tell you that we are planning on filming in July in Stamford, CT
Good luck!

Can I be honest....You, the "fix it" people, are the most dreamy part of the show! I mean, from what I can tell from watching the show - the "fix it" people do the REALLY hard stuff like the measuring and math...Never mind the 5k...for me not having to do math while I'm redoing a piece is priceless!
I live in MD but have family in CT so I know I can be there within 9hrs of getting the word! I have tried to find where I can "officially" apply on the HGTV website but didn't find anything...And "fix it" person backdoors that you know of on how to get on the show?

I just read about Flea Market Flips heading to the West Coast?!?! Oh please...before you head west my husband and I should really be considered for your East Coast Finale! We are a really fabulous couple. We are creative, determined, competitive, and have strong and proven yard selling skills which would really shine at the Brooklyn Flea Market!

Hey Queen......
We already went to the west coast! We were in Hollywood/LA in December & worked the Rose Bowl and Long Beach markets, rented a great shop to work on everything & had a great time!
The shows that are airing right now (filmed in CT) will run right into the Cali shows (season 3). We will be starting back in our home town in CT pretty soon.

So....we didn't make it to Flea Market Flips!!! Lucky for me, my daughter and I have been watching American Idol and everytime someone gets voted off - I give them (via the TV) the "But Look How Far You Made It" speech so when I told my beautiful daughter that we didn't make it on the show she said "But look how far you made it!" And the "ying" to this "yang" is that I don't have to go on a diet tomorrow!
