In this week’s episode of MARKET WARRIORS, our pickers (Miller, John, Bob and guest picker Bob Cirillo) head out west to the world famous Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA for their monthly flea market. This week our pickers are challenged to find Native American wares, and as off-screen host Mark L. Walberg describes, one of our pickers uncovers a piece with a questionable past (one of them buys a forgery that gets surrendered to the U.S. Government). Some notable picks include a Whitney Houston collectible, leather gauntlets and Picasso dominos.
