Dirty Money – Sneak Peek
Tuesdays at 8.00pm AEDT from February 27 until May 22
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In a fascinating look at what happens when a passion becomes a lifestyle, this series brings together the tale of two brothers, a few dumpsters, and an uncanny knack for creating must have collectibles. John and Jimmy DiResta live and breathe flea markets. With the help of John’s son Matthew (AKA “Rat-Boy”), the DiResta brothers live by the mantra, “Find it. Fix it. Sell it!” Their treasure map? The Big Apple. The DiResta brothers set out scouring New York City – from the dumpsters of the Lower East Side to flea markets scattered throughout the five boroughs to various antique shops and collectors. Their treasure? Items they can completely renovate and reinvent to sell for profit. Whether it’s transforming a tattered old kids bicycle into a chain-saw powered, Evel Knievel inspired bike or taking a pile of wood and building a beautiful, one-of-a-kind Manhattan skyline bench, these brothers know how to create something out of nothing. Or at least out of a pile of junk.
