Kind of hard to find. The building is tucked back and is behind another building that is under construction. Parking can be a real problem. The area is very residential and there are "no picker parking" signs everywhere. If you do manage to find the place and park, there are plenty of photo ops there. None of the stars of the show were there but there were plenty of souveniers for purchase and even some antiques as well.

This place was not the reason we went to Le Claire and glad it wasn't. This wasn't anything more than t-shirt and trinket store. The stuff antique stuff they had or sale was so over priced. If you are a fan of the show then it is a nice place to visit but don't expect too much.

Like everyone else who was visiting LeClair we headed to see the pickers shop. Not surprisingly no one was there from the show. It is a lot small than it appears on TV and in an alley, you never see that. The entire lot in front is being dug up. I did this for my husband who loves the show but for me, it was pretty much a bust. The rest of the town however, is amazing.

Same building as on the show. Merchandise is overpriced and employees weren't very friendly. Took photos of items that we've seen on the show. Small building hidden behind the BP gas station.

4 of us stopped on our way home from seeing a Twins game in Minneapolis. 3 impressed, 1 not so much but he doesn't watch the show. Check out "American Pickers" on the History Channel before you go and you will enjoy this stop much more because you can actually see the "picks" they have made on TV. It is small, we were there on a Sunday so it wasn't really too crowded. We saw Mike Wolf ride by on a bike as we were walking back to our car so that was pretty cool.

The town this place is in is pretty unique and charming (right on the Mississippi River with several antique shops and unique restaurants too). Do yourself a favor, stop and park somewhere to eat, walk the town and check out AA. Watch the show a few times first, you'll be glad you did.
