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 ;(

Biltmore, Asheville, North Carolina

This was my 2nd trip to the "Biltmore" Estates. Last visit was in November (not sure of the year?, but I was not blogging at the time.) Photos are only allowed outside the home. NEVER INSIDE. Which I was hoping they would allow photos of the Downton Abbey clothing but nope. no go. Not sure how other folks who have shown pics on their blog of the outfits have gotten past those rules???! 
The positive is my Mom & I have lots of great fun memories. We went as an early birthday present for me thanks to my hubby & my parents. So sweet! Mom & I had a fun girls times together. I knew the Downton Abbey clothing would be there until May 25th, 2 days after my birthday... so I wanted to go before they left & my Mom is a super Downton Abbey fan ...it was a must see for the both of us. So so fun!!! 
What I love about this home, you drive into that gatehouse at the top & then suddenly you lose all the traffic, the city sounds & noise ...you drive through the farm …

Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, Hayward, Wisconsin

"Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame", Hayward, Wisconsin. i am not a fisherwoman, but i have always been amazed by folks who do fish. all the hard work you do to make those stats. i must say i would prefer to see all these fish in the sea. not on the wall like this ...but what can you do? have you ever seen any of these fish alive before? this salmon above is so cool!!

did i mention that the hubby had a speed boat when we 1st started dating. it was awesome. but i always thought it needed to go FASTER. i love a fast boat. then the goober sold the thing. i miss it big time. he got rid of it because we didn't use it enough. kind of hard when you don't live near any BIG bodys of water. guess we need to move. he loved all the boat motors at this place. i now own a huge SD card of boat motors, what??! yep, i do. any one else in the world who can say that, can YOU say the same thing???!!!??!!!!

do you love to fish? Beth ( :

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :
