Viva Las Vintage

Jason and Bryan score a Route 66 travel bag and a vintage Smith Corona typewriter in Las Vegas.

Everything's half off.

(cheering and clapping)

BUT 50% LESS MONEY MEANS AT LEAST 50% MORE SHOPPERS.

AND EVEN THOUGH THE EMPLOYEES EEM TO BE EXCITED BY THE CROWD,S

JASON AND BRYAN ARE NOT.

Move out of my way. I'vegot some thrifting to do.

♪♪

Bryan: I guess it's a big deal for them to have a sale today.

I just want to get tothe goodies.

♪♪

NARRATOR: THE FIRST PLACE THE GUYS HIT UP...

The T shirt aisle.

"Genius by birth;grumpy by choice."

Hey, that's likeperfect for me.

Is it my size?

When I'm looking at t-shirts, really not the brand.

Brand's no big deal.

Here's an old Clash...

h, that's cool.O

One dollar for a Harley.

I'm looking for key graphics, key images; pop culture stuff.

Eagles, Hotel California.

No way! Eagles?

The Johnson FamilyPicnic, 2004.

There's no resalevalue for that.

Here, Eminem.

And you've gotta know what's five-minutes-ago.

Jonas Brothers t-shirtswill not sell nowadays.

I said do the top.

What are youdoing on my rack?

I saw good stuffdown there.

(laughs)

ey. Look, jerk!H

ere, go get your cart.H

I move fast like a bunny.

And Bryan moves slow like a glacier.

I think my method's better.

I might miss somethingfrom time to time,

but I'd rather see everything than to be all lackadaisical

and only see half the stuff.

♪♪

Bryan: And when Jason says verything, he means everything.e

Now that's a muumuu.

That is awesome.

I dare you to tryit on right here.

Women always have that look.I can tell in their eyes.

"Is he just shopping or is he buying for himself?"

Well, it does sayone size fits all.

I don't know why helooks at dresses

but that's what he likes to look at.

It fits me nice.Oh, wow. Itdoes fit you.

NOW HERE'S A GUY WHO'S CLEARLY COMFORTABLE

WITH HIS MASCULINITY.

Jason: If somebody's watching me; cool.

If nobody's watchingme; I'll still do it.

♪ (Hawaiian) ♪

Muumuus are supposed to bekinda flowing and free so,

there'll be a lot of peoplethat could buy this dress

and it'll be good for them.

♪♪

Now we're headed offto a garage sale.

There's racks set up, clothesactually organized by;

here's men's; here's women's.I think they had kids.

Piles of stuffed animals; CDs in a tub.

UT THEN JASON NOTICES THE SIGNSB OSTED ALL OVER THE GARAGE SALE.P

Jason: And for somebody to put it out on front street

that they're noteven going to negotiate;

just seemslike, hm! Weird.

THE GUYS QUICKLY REALIZE THIS WOMAN IS PROBABLY

A PROFESSIONAL GARAGE SALER.

No matter where I thrift,

the best thing in my arsenal of tools is my feet.

And I know that when it's time to turn around and go,

even if I haven't found anything,

I'm never afraid to walk.

Hey, Jason.

A stuffed animaljust like you.

Notice theresemblance?

(weak laugh)

Jason always hasthat nagging thought,

no matter where he goes,he's going to find something

that he can buy.

How much for thebig stuffed frog?

OK.

The whole garagesale could be crap

but there's alwaysthat one gem.

You've just got to lookfor it and dig,

but it's there somewhere.

A-ha.

TODAY'S GEM IS APPARENTLY LINGERIE.

Jackpot!

Their pink, lacy, bows...Awesome.

I don't know this brand but one's Fredrick's.

I specialize in larger women's lingerie because...

And people typically that size;

A, they don't have a lot of options, and B,

might not want to go out ofthe house and go shopping.

It's real easy to sit onyour couch and just click. Buy!

These four pieceswill be all right.

It'll dependon the price.

How much is the lingerie?

(laughs)

When I asked how much the lingerie was,

all she could do was laugh.

I'm like, "I didn'tthink that was funny.

You're selling it; I'm buyingit, just tell me the price."

Four pieces.

Bryan: I wouldn't laugh so much.

OK.

Maybe she thought I was goingto try it on or something.

Good luck on selling that lingerie.

Thank you.

Lingerie sells.

The bigger the better.

Jason: I'm excited about A Vintage Vegas.

stuff there in the past

and hoping to find somemore goodies today.

ello.H

Good, how you doing?

Bryan: Hey, how's it going?

JASON AND BRYAN KNOW THAT VINTAGE VEGAS

TYPICALLY CATERS TO TOURISTS.

But I know if I lookin the right spots,

I can find some stuffthat I can turn around

and make some money on.

Jason: Ah, that's cool.

(chuckle)

Bryan: Kodak Instamatic X15.

I walked in and I'm seeing a vintage instamatic camera.

But I knew right away that thatwasn't the real prize there.

You know what's unique about this?

That's way beforemy time, buddy.

Camera stuff is not my thing;it's definitely Bryan's thing.

He was selling camerasbefore I was even alive so...

He knows it well.

What I usually do is I; I collect, you know,

any sort of flash bulbs orold film that's still sealed.

I'm going to get all of these but not the camera.

Bryan's found the filmwhich is a great find.

But as I round thecorner, I hit the jackpot.

Here's a Smith-Corona.

Bryan: Very nice.

Jason: And the keys on this one are way better

than those Royals.

And it's in a portable case.

Snip the keys off andthen crafters buy them.

Oh, yeah.

Uh, the typewriter itself isprobably worth a couple bucks.

Writers nowadays tendto like old typewriters.

But I like this.

Seventy-five bucks isa little much though.

Maybe we can seeif we can haggle. I agree.

The price on the typewriteris seventy-five dollars.

I would feel a lot more comfortable at, like, 65.

I like thattypewriter in there.

I was wondering if you coulddo better than 75 on it.

Yeah, let me see howmuch I paid for that one.

Haggling's a bit of a risk.

I'm not sure ifthey're going to bite.

I'm not sure whichwas she's going to go.

NEXT UP, THE CHARLESTON ANTIQUE MALL

AND JASON AND BRYAN ARE FEELING LUCKY.

BUT ONE OF THE CHALLENGES WHEN THRIFTING IN MARKETS LIKE THIS

IS THAT ANTIQUE ITEMS AND MULTI-VENDOR BOOTH SHOPPING

CAN JACK UP PRICES, MAKING SHOPPING FOR RESALE DIFFICULT.

♪♪

Bryan finds this sweetbrain; almost as big as mine.

Bryan: The first thing I see is this colourful brain,

almost the size of mine.

It was odd and unusual.

I might be able to flip thisfor at least a hundred.

I think more than that.I think that'd be easy.

You can probably sell thatbrain for two hundred dollars.

One ninety-nine best offer,shoot for a hundred and fifty.

Yeah. Because somebodylike a brain surgeon

would love to havethis in his office.

(record scratch)

Yeah?

(laughs)

♪♪

Bryan: Jason is fascinated with Hawaii.

I've never been therebut he goes all the time.

It's his thing and that's great.

There, we havethe winner now.

hat's...T

Joseph and theAmazing Technicolor...

reamcoat.D

Oh, no way! Thisis awesome.

It is a uniform shirtlike a bellhop shirt

from the Hilton HawaiianVillage in Waikiki.

Bryan: Is it a kid size?

No, it's just a small but,it's only twenty-two bucks.

oes it have all theD uttons on the the front?bYep.

And on the sleeves?Yep.

Based on the coloursand the buttons, like 1970s,

I was going to make funof it; now I love it.

It is awesomely ugly.

And in, and in myworld, awesomely ugly sells.
