The series delivered a robust 1 million viewers in its debut season on Spike and improved the timeslot by 23% in the key demographic of Adults 18-34. Thrifting isn't just a hobby for the hosts, Jason and Bryan, it's a modern day treasure hunt. They target the biggest and best garage sales, thrift stores, and flea markets across the country, holding to their mantra to always "buy low and sell high." When the shopping haul ends, the real drama just begins as they put their strategically-purchased items are put up for auction. With the demands for rare items in constant cycle and new trends evolve by the minute, there are no guaranteed scores anymore. Each time they auction of their goods, they are at the whimsical mercy of unknown buyers. With a sixth-sense for bargain hunting, Jason and Bryan manage to turn second-hand goods in to first-rate profit.
