LET'S BE PICKERS FOR ANTIQUE TEASETS, VINTAGE LINENS AND VICTORIAN TEA ACCOUTERMENTS





During this past winter, my husband and I enjoyed watching Mike and Frankie on "The Picker's".  Several times we stayed up until 11:00 PM and even midnight watching back to back episodes of these Le Claire, Iowa men traveling the back roads of America finding antique treasures to buy. Of course it didn't take me long to see their pursuit of "manly stuff" lacked an interest in womanly things. 




Can you imagine a sequel for the girlie girl seeking out antique tea sets, vintage linens, Victorian Costume Jewelry , old cologne bottles (instead of Frankie's oil cans) or old Silver Tea Accouterments?  Bring it on! This would be my idea of SUCCESS!
Who wants to sign up first? I'm ready- are you?

Now a feminine version of The Pickers would be my kind of show.

Lovely photos and what a pretty cameo.
