BARNSTORMING ANTIQUE FINDERS. MIKE, FRANK and DANIELLE
at ANTIQUE ARCHAEOLOGY. Your TRASH IS CASH GURUS!
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.
