More like a souvenir shop rather than rusty gold if you ask me!

Great location ez on/off to highway! Other than a display of picks from past shows this location is more a souvenir shop for Antique Archeology! I'm hoping the Nashville location... read more

Had a great time looking at the various antiques! Unique pieces. Love the gift shop! Even got to meet Mike Wolfe in town on our last visit.

Great location ez on/off to highway! Other than a display of picks from past shows this location is more a souvenir shop for Antique Archeology! I'm hoping the Nashville location is more true to the show! There were at least 12 young girls stocking shelves with their logo items but not one of them offered any insight to the items... More

Fun to visit! The store was busy, but not to crowded. The clerks were friendly and helpful! I even haggled with the manager over a wooden pulley! Also, I purchased an old headlight! Time to build a hanging lamp!

Very cool place to browse in a very cute and clean little town. Enjoyed the visit, and it was especially cool to see some of the things displayed that had been featured in the show.

Arrived at 10am, and there was already a crowd waiting. Mike came by carrying his beautiful little girl, and visiting with a group of Indian motorcycle riders. He was especially kind to two developmentally disabled individuals. Made sure the young lady received a free t-shirt, which brought her to tears. Made for such a heartfelt visit. The employees should be... More

It was fun to visit, but it appears that the main function is to sell souvenirs. There were items from some of the shows, but the prices were outrageous -- $400 for an anvil; $200 for an ordinary metal trash can. Park on the main street and take a short walk.

We arrived as they opened on a Sunday afternoon. There were lots of people waiting. It sure was a busy place. It was fun to get a few pictures in front of the car and see some items from some of the pics on the show. Lots of their own memorabilia for sale. All in all it was a fun... More

Interesting stop when passing through Le Claire, Iowa. As expected, the guys from the show where not there, but neither was Danielle. Both buildings are so full of souvenirs for the tourists that you don't really see too much of what antiques were picked.
