I just got home from LeClaire, Iowa, and had an AWESOME time at the American Picker's sale weekend! I just got into their show on the History channel this year but have fallen in love with the people and the adventure of picking. My Dad heard about this event a couple weeks ago so he, my mom, my sister & brother-in-law, and I were soooo pumped to go.
And we were not disappointed.
There were tons of yard sales around the town, a Q&A with Mike and Danielle, autograph time, not to mention several antique stores in the historical district of LeClaire.
This post might be a copy-cat of Ashley's blog, but here are my purchases from today. ;)
a $12 antique frame; a 50-cent porcelain bird; a $5 flower hair clip made by Danielle; a $4 notebook made from burlap. AND a free American Pickers poster signed by Mike Wolfe! (Yes, it says, "Erin, you rock!" on it. ;))
I also had to buy an Antique Achaeology shirt. :)
Highlight of the day: meeting Mike!
It was such a fun day! I'll leave you with some pictures from the flea market. :)
