I Met My First Picker!

If you've ever seen American Pickers, you know what a "picker" is. They make their living scouring the countryside looking for treasures in abandoned barns, junkyards, roadside and basements. Yesterday, two antique dealer friends were in the shop buying and I heard them making plans to meet their picker. I told them I wanted to meet the picker so they asked him to come by the shop and he drove up in his old pickup truck filled with treasures! He came in and saw what I had and I told him my price range so hopefully he will come back with treasures I can pass on to you!
