Theme: Just because something is old, doesn’t mean it’s junk...take another look.

Despite what people of Jasper, Texas think, Theodora feels Old Man Crampton, his pet pig and his junkyard are just dandy.

LeVar introduces viewers to an artist who collects what some people may consider “junk,” and transforms it into fun and fascinating artwork. As LeVar holds his own garage sale, it becomes apparent that what one person sees as junk might be another person’s treasure.
