I love Pickers!

Photo 801

I'm not much of a TV gal (because there's not enough time in the day), but History Channel, Discovery, Bio, Nat Geo all get me stuck watching. Those channels are like a trap that I always get caught in! My one favorite show is Pickers with Mikey and Frank! They are awesome!! They go to people's homes and go through all their junk/treasure! They are way goofy and cute! Now I've heard (from a rotten tot) that the whole show is fake and everything is set up, but I don't care one bit! I love seeing all the cool old stuff on there. And if they are just actors they are good because they seem to really care about history and I appreciate that! Plus look - a pinball game! And there was this cool old carnival toy thing - which was awesome!
Have you watched it? What do you think?
ps to Mikey and Frank if you ever find cool letterpress stuff let me know ;) love becky

I thought you were talking about nose or scab pickers ;)

If I had those channels, I'm pretty sure I'd be hooked on them, especially National Geographic! I stayed with a friend in the states recently and we watched a lot of Animal Planet too. :)

I love pickers! I don't think it is really set up other than the people they go and see. I have an uncle that has this sort of job and it rocks!

hubby and I watch it with my dad all the time, it's so funny and great. I wish they'd come up and visit my grandpa, he has a ton of stuff I bet they'd like.

I love Pickers! The first season is on Netflix and I love it. That one and Pawn Stars. It's amazing to see what treasure people have.

My dad and bubs love that show. I need to set my dvr for it.

My boyfriend and I are "Pickers" fanatics! We LOVE Mikey and Frank! :) I don't believe the show is fake, they have an actual eBay store, with feedback from way before the show. I'm sure they embellish a bit for entertainment sake, though!

I love the show! I discovered it about 6 months ago and haven't missed an episode. What a cool job!
