What Do Antique Pickers Do?

If you’ve seen American Pickers, the History Channel tv series, then you have a pretty good idea about what I do.

If you’re not familiar with the tv show, basically, an antique picker comes to you and pays you for items you want to sell.

About Antique Picking, In General

I’ll come to your house and pay you cash for your items.

I have a diverse and perpetual list of items I’m always interested in buying. For example, I collect coins. I also collect almost anything that’s military. If you have old toys or vintage advertising for sale, I’m probably interested in buying. But even if you don’t see it here, I may want your collectibles.

If you have something you want to sell, or if you want to know when I’ll be in your area, feel free to call or email me. I may not have your item on a list on this site, but could be very interested in buying. Ask me.

About Me, Specifically

I come from generations of pickers and I’ve been a picker for over twenty years. Part of my job is to keep up to date about the antique and collectibles market. I have years of experience in watching fluctuating value, so I know what’s in demand. I can help you make an informed decision about selling.

Declutter and Make Money

Added bonus: I’m somewhat of an expert at clutter removal. If you need help with cleaning out an outbuilding or barn or a basement, call me. I’ll help you with the clutter and I’ll pay you for the things you don’t want. I’ll pay you to let me declutter and haul away.


I love antiques and collectibles. I’m an ardent collector.

And I’m a history buff.

So, for me, antique picking is a dream job.

I also have an intense appreciation for the beauty of strange and unusual. I might buy something just because I think it’s interesting and unique. It’s not always about resale value.

Antique picking is more than a hobby for me. It has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have a good, long-standing reputation in my field, with many repeat sellers over the years.


If you have something you’d like to sell, give me a call. I’d like to do business with you.
