The National Geographic Channel is airing a new show this Friday night at 8:00pm that looks perfect for anyone who likes to go thrifting and hit the flea markets and yard sales (hey, that’s me!). Flea Man follows Jimmy Kaplow on his trips to flea markets and into people’s homes, where he offers them advice on what some of their treasures are worth.
From the few clips available on the site, I know I’ll be an instant fan. I can’t wait for this one!
Excellent! Another show for my DVR. Actually, I may be able to catch this since it airs at 8p. Love these shows.
Yep, my DVR is set. This one looks like it could be really good.

He’s also on Facebook it seems http://www.facebook.com/thefleaman
Thanks for the tip Ashley!
oh cool! will set my dvr to tape. Nothing beats American pickers and hollywood treasures tho.
I love American Pickers and Hollywood Treasure but this show looks more like how I spend my Saturdays. I’m looking forward to checking it out.
I’ve fallen in love with American Pickers and Auction Hunters. I’m darn jealous, too. They find some awesome stuff. Wow, I remember watching Batman episodes in that big plastic helmet/mask. Man, if that’s worth a lot of money I’ll die!
Hey, if you have the urge to recapture your youth, Hake’s has one of those helmets up for bid now: http://www.hakes.com/item.asp?Auction=203&ItemNo=98292
Starting bid: $250!
So how was this show? I went to see Green Lantern and forgot about this. I then realized that i don’t have National Geographic Channel lol.
Anywhere on the net i can see tonights episode?
I really enjoyed the show. I think The host, Jimmy Kaplow, and I could definitely enjoy a beer together. Next week’s episode is going to be about a guy who has a ton of vintage toys, so you know I’ll be tuning in for that one.
You can see some clips on the National Geographic Channel’s web site.
I need to see if my dad can DVR this for me lol. I love seeing vintage toys in the wild.
I finally saw the first 4 episodes today. He was in my neck of the woods with the long beach and rose bowl flea markets. If your out here in LA you’ve got to go to these 2 flea markets.
Getting to the Rose Bowl flea market is on my bucket list. Some day!
What did you think of the show? I really got into the third episode with the guy who had all those vintage toys for sale. His basement looked eerily familiar to someone I know [ahem].
I really enjoyed the show. Gonna be DVR’ing this from now on. Will probably catch them sometime next week.
What’s the design on the back of your clothes? Is it your logo?
