IF you have HISTORY CHANNEL and they are showing their AMERICAN PICKERS marathon, tune in. They do a marathon several days a week, I caught it both Wedneday and Friday; --it goes all day and night.  Keep peeking at your guide to see if HISTORY CHANNEL has it today. It's a college course in making a living in antiques. And when NEW YORK TIMES covers it, you know it's good!

This head trasher MIKE WOLFE  started as a kid with bikes. Today he has a store in Iowa and one in Nashville, Tennessee. He has a Mercedes van, drives & "picks" from Washington state  to Maine.  He keeps picking old, rusty lamps which I couldn't figure out until I saw them at his website where he calls them SALVAGE LAMPS. WOW! http://antiquearchaeology.com/lighting_gallery/lighting.html

Keep an eye peeled for SALVAGE LIGHTING -- OLD BIKES also. Old advertising wall Signs, old gas and oil cans, any COKE OR PEPSI ADVERTISING, and individual Letters.  Especially in porcelain!

I just got cable and after a month of surfing movies, I have decided that AMERICAN PICKERS the greatest TV SHOW out there.  FREE VIDEOS of all EPISODES ARE VIEWABLE ONLINE  See:

You gotta have a VAN, man! Not a
gas hog cuz you gotta travel the back
roads. Truck with a tarp would work.
