We advertised that our Flea Market Flip episode was going to air on Sunday, July 26th at 12 noon... 

At least that was the listing we were given.  HGTV had us on the line-up for months.... 

We were all so excited to see it...

Until the night before when I was on a family vacation in Turks & Caicos and picked up my ipad only to find out that we were OFF the lineup for the next day....

What??? What happened? 

Nobody really knows for sure exactly what happened but I got home from vacation the next day extremely bummed that the show wasn't going to air at noon.... 

I sat down on the couch in front of the TV for a little nap after an exhausting 12 days of snorkeling, swimming, laying in the sun, and relaxing. Ugh... someone had to do it....

And suddenly I hear my voice.... on TV... if you know me... I apparently have a squeaky voice... so there was no missing it!

I looked up and there I was... it was 11:00 not 12 and our episode was ON... only under the wrong name in the listings!!! 

And so it was... I started to text family and friends to let them know it was on... NOW!!!

That's the story of the Flea Market Flip Episode that was, then wasn't, but was after all.... 

I was only able to view the whole show myself by purchasing it on Amazon. For $1.99 I got season 5 episode 9 which is New York vs. New Jersey.... or The Empire State vs. The Garden State.

I am sorry for the mix-up and according to HGTV right now the show is going to air again...

If you've seen the show already or just can't wait (I'd look).... here they are....

A wine bar with a mirror in the back, a place to hang wine glasses, wine bottle storage, and a chalkboard... 

This piece is painted in French Linen Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® with a wash of Graphite and an Artisan Enhancements Pearl Plaster glaze over the top.

  2. I am sure that waiting and getting bumped, but not bumped and surprised was very frustrating, Susan! It sounds like a really cool experience though and you made some pretties for sure. I can't wait to see it on the 5th!

  5. That's really funny.... (odd) the episode was correct in my area, that's why I alerted you that it was coming on at 11:00 (via email)
    My DVR is set to pick up all new episodes, so it was easy for me to spot. I just wasn't sure it was YOUR episode until I saw you. hehehe

    Wow! for the episode and for the VACATION! woohooo!

    loved your projects and seeing you work in action.

  7. I watch Flea Market Flip all the time....I actually saw this episode but didn't know it was You until now! That must have been an awesome experience. I think the faux library cabinet is my favorite, but then I love the the use of the antique corbels on the garden bench as well, genius. Congrats!!!
