If making lace in the early 20th century was like printing money, then the guys will be rolling in dough after they explore the abandoned Scranton Lace Factory in Scranton, Pa. As they cross the immense factory, the guys collect a check protector, a pair of doors and a vintage tampon dispenser. When Jay spots a single shoe and Mark finds a bowling score sheet, the guys follow the clues to a four-lane bowling alley full of American-made bowling pins and balls.
