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 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 ;(

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We had dinner at "Pyramid Lake Resort". We were camping at the Wapiti campground within Jasper National Park. We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
