On any weekend, there may be no better place to find out what makes America great than at a flea market.

A Flea Market Documentary, airing Monday, August 5 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV, from filmmaker Rick Sebak (A HOT DOG PROGRAM) is an unabashed celebration of the unusual people and the enticing things that can be found in parking lots, fairgrounds, drive-ins, sidewalks and wherever else someone has posted a sign saying "Flea Market." It's capitalism mixed with craziness. It's amazing old stuff, great salespeople, the ancient tradition of the open-air market and the possibility of finding a bargain, uniting shoppers across the nation.
