A&E presents the new original real-life series which follows four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure.

Strict and disciplined, Dave runs a tight ship at his Rags to Riches consignment store. He’s a big fish in the game and has made his money from blood, sweat and tears. In 2005, after being convicted of a DUI, Dave was forced into community service at a local Goodwill Store. Seeing the potential in such an operation, the then furniture store owner transformed his operation into a thrift store. The idea changed his life. The son of a military man and train collector, Dave sold his hoarder father’s train collection for a small fortune. (It took him five years to sell the whole collection…it was that big.) He says he’s the total opposite of his father: simple, clean, no clutter, all business. Of all the characters, Dave has the largest operation with the largest overhead. He needs every purchased container to produce a profit to feed his massive machine of over 15 employees. Pickers will come to his store to buy art at a low price, but Dave sells his pieces at true price: upwards of $150,000.
