Sold a pair of juvenile taxidermy gators this past year.  After keeping them on display and the market for a while, I brought them home to keep ... twas my intention anyway.  They remained for sale online and was purchased by a restaurant owner who wanted them to be on...

Found this 1950's homemade lathe table for sale.  My son-in-law and I split the cost on it; he took the lathe and I took the table.  

Here's what I did to it:

- Sanded the entire piece.  Distressed the original mint green paint to satisfaction and heavier sanding on...

Occasionally the week brings you 'themed' finds.  What I mean by that, within one week in two different states, I find circus themed items in my picking.  Generally, with old circus items, you only come across these once in a great while but this past week I came acros...

Folk Art!  My fav!  Typically, folk art pieces are one-of-a-kinds ... not manufactured pieces ... so, this is it!  There's only one truck like this.  It's a business advertisement piece which, to me, make it even better.

It's not super duper old but vinta...

I don't do many flea markets but I can't resist Rogers Flea market in Ohio.  I still get better finds on cold-call picks but I generally find some items of equal or greater interest at the flea market but with a heavier price tag.

It just so happens a couple guys are st...

(The Jan 18, 2019 Update is below dotted line)

As I regain my momentum back into picking, I ventured into a junk shop in which I occasionally visit.... literally a junk shop.... not an antique store.

Normally I cold-call pick but I never reject an opportunity to visit a...

I received a call from a home owner to pick a house in Morgantown, WV near WVU.  From my understanding, the old house became an inheritance and the new owner wanted everything gone.  The structure of the house itself was pretty bad and was facing demolition....

This historical grist mill is in the initial phase of demolition. I was invited to gather and purchase some content before the Reckart's (Grist) Mill goes down. Once the building is completely disassembled, I'll be bringing the bigger pieces in. As for now I just gathe...

It does happen occasionally and that's what a picker anticipates happening more often than not; that one really cool and unique find.  Not only unique but at the most unexpected moment, time and place.

I wasn't out picking at this moment but a picker is never off duty....

Never again.

I knew there would be a loss but stuff was going for so little, I left to go home and said, "call me when it's over."

If I ever auction off this much stuff, I'll never use that auctioneer again.  Hiring a more notable auctioneer will be my choice, even if th...

I've picked in most all states east of the Mississippi river.
