April 9

American Pickers!

After work today, my co-worker Tom, and his wife Laura set out to LeClaire to try to meet the American Pickers - Mike and Frank. In case you haven't seen it, American Pickers is a show on the History Channel about these two guys who go around the country buying and selling collectibles. They have run their business out of LeClaire, Iowa for the last 10 years and Mike said they began pitching the idea for a show 4 years ago. We had such a good time! Their warehouse is full of neat collectibles and the people from the show were so nice. When we got there, only Danielle was there, but she called up Mike and told him there were some people there who wanted to meet him. It's a neat show, so if you haven't seen it, check it out! Even if you aren't interested in collectibles/antiques (which I'm not), the guys make it interesting by telling the history of the stuff they find and their fun personalities make the show what it is.
