Jay and his buddies take a ride to rural Lonaconing, Md., where they dig through a shuttered silk mill that's been abandoned since 1957. When the guys get in, they discover that the entire mill is totally preserved. With just six hours to dig, Jay, Mark and Dan scramble to find one-of-a-kind items, including a washbasin, a wheeled cart and a custom-built bench. But the building's owner is a tough sell, and Jay must convince him to lower his prices.
