Discovering the American Pickers in 42N Country

The History's Channel's hit show, American Pickers is based out of 42N's LeClaire, Iowa, just north of Davenport along the Mississippi River. Antique Archaeology featured on the show is located a block off the main street at 115 1/2 Davenport Street with store hours 11am - 4pm Mon-Sat or by appointment. The above two photos are of the business office featured on the show. Its where pickers Mike and Frank interact with Danielle, the organizer.

But where is the white truck that Mike and Frank use to cruise around the country to pick antiques from collectors? On this particular day the show's white truck was in town. LeClaire is not too big - drive around and you'll discover the truck (when in town) parked by a antique gas pump and signs. Which is, of course a sign that you have found an American Picker. Know that.


  1. Oh goodness! This is one of Fisherhubby's FAVORITE shows. So cool that you went there.

    Your boys gave me quite a scare today! I thought IN would be an easy win - - - we have them next week and I was feeling "safe" about that game, but NOT ANY MORE!

    My boys scared me in the first half, but they redeemed themselves quite nicely in the second half.

  2. I also love this show and wondered if you knew anything about them and lookie here - you do!!

    Keetha, talking football, now that's different lol
