Dickering 101Aired on Apr 02, 2014
Welcome to Maine and the world of dickering, where everything comes with a price tag. Using a weekly publication, Uncle Henry's, as a guide, our expert dickerers make a good enough living in swapping, buying, and selling, to enjoy life on their own terms. Tony Bennett and his partner, Codfish, turn a hefty profit on vintage auto parts and soda signs. Roland "Yummy" Raubeson and his son Mitchell tackle a bridge-building project. And Clint Rohdin and his future son-in-law Nate trade mechanical skills and hard labor for the perfect demolition derby junker. Just a normal week in Down East Maine!

Risky BusinessAired on Apr 09, 2014
These dickerers live by a book--a weekly publication in Maine that advertises OPPORTUNITY. To avoid legal hot water, Tony has to unload one of his many vehicles, but can't turn down a deal to buy another. Will he end up in the hole or ahead of the game? Yummy and son Mitchell undertake a dangerous job of removing a heavy, historic bell from a crumbling church tower. Meanwhile, tractor-loving Clint turns an old tractor to its former glory without spending a nickel.

Not So Fast...Aired on Apr 16, 2014
Tony and Codfish buy a beat-up '60s-era school bus with hopes it can be turned into a RV. But getting the jumbo-sized monster out of the field is the first problem, and then finding a buyer who won't scrap it is the second. Mitchell wants to follow in his father's footsteps and become a full-time dickerer, but a skeptical Yummy demands his son to prove his dickering skills by earning $700 in a week. Meanwhile, Clint dickers a deal to fix up a paintball facility, but when the job becomes more difficult than originally planned, he is forced to confront the owner.
