DESCRIPTION: (from History's press release, October 2014) Get ready for more odd jobs, crazy barters, offbeat goods and jaw-dropping ways to make a quick buck, because DOWN EAST DICKERING is back for a new season premiering Wednesday, November 12 at 10 pm ET/PT on HISTORY. In the dickering biz, the work week begins on Thursday when Uncle Henry's hits the stands. There's buried treasure in every issue of this local magazine filled with classified ads, and you can get a great deal IF you know what to look for and how to look for it. On this season of DOWN EAST DICKERING, viewers will travel all over the state of Maine with the dickerers, going wherever there's a good deal to be had. Each episode is jam-packed with unique transactions, from trading spare parts for a car repair to getting a few hours of labor in exchange for some fresh lobster. These guys live life on their own terms - no time clocks, no bosses, and no rules. Every dickerer depends on Uncle Henry's to help them spot a deal, distinguish trash from treasure, and fix, sell or swap... and they're all trying to do it faster than the next guy. Each group may have different strategies, but they all share the same goals: spend a little, make a lot, and enjoy life.
