American Pickers!

Craig called me from the road today, he was somewhere in the Western part of Kentucky on a wrecker run! He said guess who just passed me on the road? The American Pickers! He was very excited! Of course, we watch the show every week and we have been by their place in La Clair, Iowa. But he was shocked to actually see them on the road! He said, I just had to call and tell somebody! Men are so funny! I figure they are on there way to the 127 yard sale! That's exactly where I will be Thursday and Friday with Ms. Lauri of Chippys! I plan on taking my camera, maybe I'll see the American Pickers shopping as well and get a picture of them! Craig would die! LOL!

CP should have flagged them down! You and Ms. Chippy girl and are going to have so much fun, wish I were going. Find lots of cool stuff and save it for Texas.

I love those guys! We are devoted fans. My husband will be tickled to hear that your husband passed them on the road.

Have fun at the sale!

No Way...that is very cool!! Rob and I love them. I know so many woman who travel and pick. It is wild seeing two guys traveling, stuck in a van, sharing goofy friend chat, picking through cool junk & whispering their dickering strategies to each other, just like couple of chicks.

The American Pickers are interesting to watch. I've always read about that huge yard sale thing!! I can't wait to see your pictures, and hey, maybe some of the American Pickers as well!!

Take care, Sue

1) I'm insanely jealous that you're going to WLYS, and 2) why didn't Craig become a stowaway? XOX

Lordy, it takes so little to keep our men happy. Cat Daddy would have done a u-turn and followed 'em...he's such a huge fan. You ought to see him when we pass a Nascar truck and trailer!

Hope you catch up with them! Wouldn't that be a hoot. Good junking to you. Here's hoping you find some great stuff.

Theresa and Craig, If the pickers stopped at your place you would be one of those couples who wouldn't sell anything to them:) They'd spend all day at your place and leave empty handed:)
