I was very shocked how small it was. And it is right in the middle of town. Everyone was very nice. I thought it was too full of souvenirs not enough of the "picked" items. I wouldn't make a special trip but we made a whole weekend full of other things to do. Glad I was able to see where... More

It was fun to see the items that I had seen picked on the shows. It would be great if there were more small items that were picked on shows for sale. We actually seen Dave ride up on his motorcycle and go inside for a few minutes.

I thought the place would be a little larger. I was hoping to buy a couple books off the shelf but was told they were part of Mike's personal collection. drat-I like books especially old school books.

Thankfully, my husband had already read about this online. The tour group that was there had not. Do not make this a destination. If you are passing through and want to spend a few minutes, eh. The old and new buildings are really small. I am not kidding, they are small. And NO, Mike and Frank will NOT BE THERE.... More

do not expect to go here to buy anything but souvenirs. I am a big fan of the show, but this place is more of a museum than a cool place to buy "rusty gold". if you've watched the show for awhile then you will see things that they bought including quite a few bikes, motorcycles and the big Laurel...

Went there expecting something great and was truly disappointed. There is nothing special about this place. To use another post "glorified gift shop". There is nothing good to purchase unless us want a shirt, hat or Mike Wolfe's book. Don't go out of your way to see this place.

Disappointed in this place..very expensive glorified gift shop. Really not much to see except souvenirs and a few items from the show. Staff didn't speak to you unless you was at the register

It is worth seeing. Lots of old motorcycles, toys, etc. Nothing I wanted to buy, but I enjoyed looking.

The antique mall we saw on Kimberly St. was more entertaining. This was nothing more than a tourist trap. There was a lot of unrestorable rusted out stuff that you could find in a farmers junk pile there. The nicer items they did have were on display, not for sale and the few items that were for sale were well... More

It was fun to see a few of the items that you saw them find while out picking. The biggest downfall I would say is all the typical tourist stuff they have to purchase. Being they have based their business off of picking and have become famous for that, having more "smalls" to purchase for those coming to see the... More
