If you are coming to go antique shopping you wont find much. Most things are not for sale. If you want t-shirts, books written by the owners, can koozies and that sort of souvenir chachkis than by all means this is your go to place. I was not impressed.

The site for the popular television series "The Pickers" is located on a hill along an alley behind the Amoco Station. When the series began, several large objects from the television program were on display. The rest of the material was not for sale and only used for backdrop. Since the two "pickers" have relocated, this site is little more... More

I traveled to Le Claire hoping to shop in their store and maybe get a glimpse or talk to the cast. Alas, they had filmed that morning and no one was around. A lot of tourists were there but the store was closed so only photo ops were available. When you have traveled a long way it would have been... More

If you are a fan of the show you will enjoy seeing this - They do have a lot of souveniers for sale but that is to be expected. LeClaire is a quaint town with a nice feel. Worth an afternoon.

I enjoyed seeing the shop that we see so frequently on the show. I just wish there was "something else" for you to do while you're there. I like walking around and seeing some of the "finds." It'd be cool if you could have some sorta game...like, guess which one has the highest value or like I said, something "to... More

I am an avid fan of the American Pickers TV show so when fate brought us within an hour of LeClaire when we picked up a puppy visiting from the Twin Cities, I humbly requested of my wife a slight detour. I read posts good and bad prior to my visit. I visited because I enjoy the show and the... More

My wife and I were on our way home and have always wanted to stop here having watched and enjoyed the show since it started. We're also MCM nuts who dabble in the business and thought they would have some really interesting pieces we could possibly purchase. We were expecting lots of items from their picks for sale. This is... More

Since last year the have built a new building. Real nice. Have shirts, coffee mugs and other souvenirs you can buy, plus some of the things... More
