A must stop

We're in the collectibles biz so had to stop to see where the legends are. You won't find them there very often, but cool stuff on sale and display.

It's kind of been turned into a tourist trap. There is a second building only for souvenirs yet the main building is also half gift shop. One cool thing is you get to see some stuff that was on the show. You will recognize some of the items. However, of course, none of the people that are on the show... More

If you love the show this place is for you. Lots of things that you'll remember from prior picks, and every kind of tshirt and doodad you could ever want. Prices for something seemed high, but most of the antiques (there weren't all that many) seemed like they were priced like at other antique malls. Smaller than you expect -... More

Not just a TON to see, but we still enjoyed it. Saw several things we recognized from the show, including the albino raccoon! There were some very expensive things, some T-shirts and some cheap nick nacks. It was mostly fun to see items from the show.

I like antiques and appreciate seeing the vision of pickers, so was looking forward to seeing this place. I figured there would be a lot that you didn't see on the show. Unfortunately Antique Archaeology is nothing more than a prop for the television show. Very little in the way of anitques and vintage for sale. Large shelving areas of... More

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.
