Dirty Money

The old adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure is brought to life in the new Discovery Channel series "DIRTY MONEY", premiering on Tuesday, August 9th at 10 PM ET/PT. In a fascinating look at what happens when a passion becomes a lifestyle, "DIRTY MONEY" 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. (Source: The Discovery Channel)

We need MORE DIRTY MONEY!! I am addicted to this show and have gotten my husband and 3 kid hooked with me. The innovation, hard work and spunk is very entertaining and motivating. We would love to see the workshop on our next trip to New York. I can't wait for the next episode.....there better be a next episode, I think Ratboy is about to loose his temper and just go off on his father and uncle ;) Read more
