american pickers

my latest addiction is not dark chocolate, listening to the billy elliot soundtrack or washi tape. it's watching american pickers on the history channel. i have watched one or two episodes each night for the last week. have you seen it? it's a reality tv show about two guys that are passionate about antiques and collectibles that have a business called antique archeology in le claire, iowa. they travel all across the united states exploring people's homes, barns, outbuildings, or storage units for antiques to buy. they frequent hoarders, collectors, and people that have inherited a large quantity of junk. if you like the thrill of the hunt and enjoy going to antique shows, rummage sales, thrift stores, estate sales, and auctions, then you will absolutely love this show. the vespa scooter above is one of their finds and they are selling it on their website here.
