This reality series is about two guys named Mike and Frank who travel all across America looking for antiques buried in peoples' buildings that they think are diamonds in the rough. They buy them from the owners, fix them up with the help of their friend Danielle, and sell them for a profit. It's a cool show that teaches you a lot about history - most of the stuff they find comes with its own unique story. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Storage Wars - people buy a storage locker and turn its contents for a profit or Pawn Stars - people bring antiques to a pawn shop in order to sell or pawn them for money.] -- recommended by Carrie K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
