    John's notorious for 'bidding up' the other dealers making them overpay to reduce their profit. Although John relies on research, John is a sucker for buying lost luggage and sleepers - items that don't look valuable, but net a doozy of a profit. John used to corner the market on buying and selling beauty product but he's expanding his horizons and comfort zone by taking chances on 'wild cards' and collectables. John is ever looking for the 'holy grail', that one item that he can retire on. Close

    At auctions, Lou's the loose cannon. No budget, no research, Lou likes to wing it - and the rest of us are just along for the ride! Lou calls himself a facilitator - he almost always has a buyer in mind when he's bidding at the auction. Like Robbie, Lou's a sucker for a 'wild card'. He once bought a wooden coffin for $100 and sold it for $700 to a club owner for a Halloween party. When he's not buying and hustling goods to his many contacts, Lou is a restaurateur and a Pawn Shop owner. He works alongside his muscle for hire, Mario, who suffers Lou's eccentricities and stormy temper to help him load out and tinker on his purchases. Close

    Kathleen is savvy and shrewd but tends to be the more conservative of the two. Robbie is the high roller with a fearlessness that most people don't have. He's not afraid to throw down thousands of dollars in a sale if he thinks he can triple his money, which he often does. His favorite buys are the wild cards - flashy unique items whose value is anyone's guess. Robbie lives by the adage the bigger the risk, the better the payoff. A skid of sex toys that he bought for $300 and sold for $3000 helped bankroll a family trip to Disney Land. Close
