Thrift TV 2011 Giveaway: Cash and Cari Premiers Tonight


2011 is officially the year of thrifter-friendly television! The newest edition is Cash and Cari, which follows Cari Cucksey as she thrifts and hunts for hidden treasures to sell for profit. It premiers on HGTV tonight (January 3) at 10 P.M (ET/PT).

Show Description: Cari and her team search estate sales, flea markets, dusty attics and cluttered garages to find hidden or overlooked antique furniture, decorative accessories, collectibles and memorabilia. Whether it’s a vintage Chanel gown left behind at the dry cleaners, a limited-edition pink vinyl copy of Michael Jackson’s Thriller* or a Capodimonte porcelain statuette, Cari’s expert eye will spot the undiscovered gems that could lead to big bucks.

*Give me this! Give it to me now, Cari! I love me some MJ.

HGTV is harnessing social media to make the show interactive. They're allowing viewers to upload photos of their treasures to HGTV.com, each week Cari will pick one item and appraise its value. Consider this a venue for enthusiastic antique hunters to network.


“Cari’s extensive knowledge of antiques and valuables is remarkable,” said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV. “Her adventures will inspire HGTV viewers to search for the treasures in their own attics and garages, not only for fun, but also for profit.”

The Cash & Cari Giveaway:

In honor of the show, HGTV has provided me with a prize pack to give away to one winner. It contains the contents below:

  • HGTV Red Can Koozie
  • HGTV Ocean Blue Mug
  • HGTV Canvas Visor
  • HGTV Multi-Colored Roll-up Tote

Simply leave a comment on this blog post to enter the giveaway! I will announce the winner on Monday, January 10th.

  1. Thanks for posting. This show looks great. I'm always pleasantly surprised to find thrift-friendly entertainment these days. I know the downward spiraling ecnonomy must have a thing or two to do with that. But it would also be nice to see some thrifty programming that highlights some pros of donating/upcycling/collecting from a a green-positive POV, and not just from a financial standpoint. Still...it's entertainment nonetheless!

  4. I can't wait to see the show in person. It's about time HGTV put on some new shows. I'd stopped watching it, 'cause all they seem to have on is House Hunters.

  6. Had not heard of the show, but looking forward to checking it out - hmm... going up against Pawn Stars? I have mixed feelings about the whole Pawn Shop / Pickers / Storage Auction / Thrifter phenomenon for cable TV shows. I guess it's nice to watch cause it's much more interesting than the usual fare, but man, like I NEED more competition from everyone and their mom becoming a Picker LOL.

  7. I'm really excited for this show. It looks like it would teach more than the American Pickers and seems more relateable to me because she does what I do in the estate sale, flea market sense. But, yes, I do agree with A La Modern. Hope this doesn't bring too many wanna be resellers to my local estate sales! It's a tough fight out there as it is!

  9. Can't wait to watch! I LOVE the thrifting 'trend'? and think tv is a great expansion to it. However, it may shrink the items I find!

  10. I love the shows as long as they are real and not 'set up'. I saw the sneak peek of this show on New Year's Day and I have to say it looks really good. I will wait and see. At least she isn't just looking at guy junk.

  11. I look forward to seeing the show for the first time tonight...good luck to everyone involved in the show!
    Competition should be the least of anyone's concerns
    We are a nation of up-graders,re-placers and down-sizers, there will always be plenty of goods for everyone. Besides, not everyone has the same interest, cash flow or intentions for the purchases they make.

  12. I'm with A La Modern. It will be interesting to see what she scores, but I really am not looking forward to the wave of new competition. Many of these shows are indeed set up. Who would want to see a few episodes of people finding "crap" as we often do.

  18. I look forward to watching this show! I am hoping she will educate us all.

  19. I'm cautiously optimistic about this show. I hope it isn't focused only on the financial aspect of "picking", I hope that it can show that one man's trash is another (wo)man's treasure. The one short spot I saw on the show about revamping a bench was entirely too short!

  20. I have no idea what a Red Can Koozie is, but methinks I want one! Sign me up!
