It was fun to see where the show began! Although some items for sale from the "picks", it is mostly a very nice souvenir shop! Love the pickers but also learned that this is "Mike's" shop and "Frank" has a shop in Illinois. Still, if...More

I guess the answer lies in your reason for going. If you're just curious about the place, then, yes, it's worth going. If you're a serious antiquer, then, no, you're not going to find a huge selection of great antiques... More
