American Pickers Has An E-Newsletter

By now everyone has heard of the AMERICAN PICKERS show on the HISTORY CHANNEL (see history.com). I know the show has generated a lot of controversy, but my impression is they are hard working antiquers with passion and energy. They are getting hidden treasures out into collectors hands where they can be admired and studied. It's all good!

Now, if you know me, you know I like FREE things, and cable TV isn't free, so I don't have it. But the American Pickers guys do have a website, and videos on their show's HISTORY page, where you can see full episodes. And now they have a free e-newsletter.

I love the name of their business, ANTIQUE ARCHAEOLOGY -- it sums up what they do perfectly. Check out their website, and sign up here: http://antiquearchaeology.com/home.html

You can even visit their home base, the Antique Archaeology store in LeClaire Iowa (address & map link), and see some of the goodies they have picked -- "Stop in and poke around. Lookie-loos are always welcome."
