Reporting isn’t Lara’s only passion. The TV personality, who has long had a love for antiquing, hosts Flea Market Flip on HGTV.

“I’m always at flea markets and yard sales, but I promised my husband I wouldn’t become a hoarder,” she told HGTV in May 2022. “I constantly bring my stuff to consignment shops and auctions, so I actually don’t have any clutter in my home. … It’s a fun way to save money, but it’s also a fun way to make money. It’s sustainable and all very gratifying.”
