PSIP Description: 
The pickers search for an antique toy among the 300 vendors at the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days.
Long Description: 
This week on MARKET WARRIORS, the pickers head out to Oronoco, Minnesota, to the annual Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days to find an antique toy among the more than 300 vendors scattered throughout town. Off-screen host Mark L. Walberg observes the pickers as they're teamed up, men versus women, in an effort to flip an item at the market. The pickers have a chance to increase their profits by auctioning an item on eBay. Some key finds include a vintage pinball machine, a Trifari bracelet and a trolley seat. Their selected items are sent to Ken Farmer Auctions in Radford, Virginia, where they go under the hammer.
