Pick Love

Do you know these guys?

This is Mike.....and he's a picker.

This is Frank....and he's a picker too.

And they have a new show on the History channel called American Pickers. Hubby and I love this show....it's all about driving down dirt roads and looking for junky barns to pick.

I think I'm gonna try my hand at picking this year....I just have to get over feeling odd stopping and asking....can I pick your barn?

  2. That show is awesome!!!
    I wish I could find what they do. I pass this house everyday on my way to work - and he has an old, old ford truck in his shed, and I want so badly to knock on his door, and ask permission to use it as a "prop" for some of my photo sessions -
    Maybe I should bring Mike & Frank w/ me!!!!

    Have a good week.

  3. Oh my gosh-that is our FAVORITE show! Can you believe the things they find? We have rummaged and picked through some abandoned houses around Greenwood, Waverly and Cedar Creek - we sent the owners a letter asking if we could at our own risk go in and take what we wanted. Everyone let us and we found the best things ever-furniture, mouldings, claw foot tub, screen doors, mantles....DO IT! It's so much fun! I'll let you know if I come across any good place to pick ~

    can feel the excitement of the find, like walking into a thrift store and seeing what you didn't know you were looking for!

  11. Andrea, I don't get cable, but will have my gf tape it. Looks like my kind of show! Are you brave enough? I fluctuate on that! There are surely a lot of likely spots around here. Love, Sherry

  14. You know there are some folks out there with nothing in their barns -- and then there are those who have the most fabulous hidden treasures. Have fun and go for it! Blessings, Tammy

  21. Hi Andrea,
    I just found your blog through 52 Flea and I love it! I totally love this show!! My husband and I watch it every Monday night. They find the greatest stuff! We also love Pawn Stars which comes on before this show. Do you ever watch it? I can't believe the treasures people bring in to sale. Amazing!
    I'm glad I found you. I'll be back.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda
