Antique Archaeology, LeClaire, Iowa





"Antique Archaeology, LeClaire, Iowa". "American Pickers" on the History channel with Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, & Danielle Colby. My fave was always Danielle, love all her tats & her silly fun attitude. 

The hubby & I when we had cable would always catch the show, now that the cable is not around any more, only rabbit ears here folks, we have the chance to see any episodes we missed thanks to Netflix. 

The saddest part of going to see this place, was that fact that none of the people from the show we around to say hey or whatnot, 2nd that what they show you on the tv episode is not what you will see when you visit their place of business there in Iowa, nope ... sorry folks it is all for show. not real. WHAT??!!!? We recently when to their Nashville, Tennessee location & it was so much more huge of a building, way more people visiting too, I will be sharing that soon. Beth ( :

Not aware of the TV programme, but it certainly looks like an intriguing place; one to linger in.
What a shame it wasn't what you expected. It still looks like an interesting place. xx

I'm not familiar with the show, admittedly.

i don't watch the show but think 'junque' places are cool.

That is one of my husband's favorite shows. We have The Canadian Pickers here in Canada. One of the fellows from that show came into the gallery while my husband was hosting. He was thrilled. Looks like a fun place to visit. Love that car!

Looks like a fun place to poke, nevertheless :-)

That old car is pretty cool. I don't get to see those shows as we only have 3 channels on an antenna but may have a look at Netflix sometime. Have a super weekend Beth.

Isn't it a shock to find out how much of TV is illusion?

I suppose that is the way of a lot of what we see on most of the shows. Reality shows are anything but reality, it seems. That must have been disappointing, Beth. I watch that show occasionally and have enjoyed it when I did, for the most part, but that is a bit of a let-down.

Hi Beth, looks like a fun place to visit. I like the old vintage signs and the flag. Have a happy weekend!
Linda said…
I like that show! But the popularity quickly makes the business grow and get crowded. I've heard that the store for Pawn Stars has long lines waiting to get in.
Judy said…
I've wanted to stop at either store and hope to someday. I think it's just cool to just visit and maybe find something to take home.
Rose said…
Too bad you could not meet any of them...but guess they were out picking...
Ida said…
We watch that show all the time. That's a bummer that the store isn't like what they show on television and that you didn't get to meet any of them.

now that is one cool car....the rust adds so much character!!!! i have never seen or heard of this show ;(

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Northeast Creek Reservoir, Louisa, Virginia

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ... I was wondering if we would make it home. Apparently it will only affect southern Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama ... I might …
