“Fun trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We made the trip to Antique Archeology because my husband is a big fan of the show. Turns out Mike was there for a short time. He was very friendly and took pictures with anyone there who wanted to. My husband got a big kick out of that. They are in the process of expanding, will be more to see when this is done.

“Tourist Trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

VERY dirty, the only thing for sale is $40.00 T-Shirts, and $15.00 coffee cups. A total waste of ones time and fuel to get there.

“Photo op but not much else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

It was very hard to find -being tucked behind a BP gas station and their new construction.Maybe a well-placed sign would help?Young lady running the store was cute and friendly.Store was pretty small,but organized.Plenty of licensed trinkets and souvenirs(overpriced like most other places)-but still a worthwhile stop.Got to see the old Nash-that was a plus!

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

It's a lot smaller than it looks on TV (saw a recent episode where they might be adding another building), but still worth a trip to visit if you enjoy vintage and antique items.

“Trip to American Pickers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our Grandson was here for the summer, and the one place he wanted to go was the American Pickers Store in Laclair, Iowa. We went. It is nothing more than you see on TV, it is located in an alley. It is fun to look at the stuff, however, not much is for sale. We bought t shirts and postcards, etc. It's a great place to take pics, so you can say you have been there. They are building a new building close to the original. It was fun, but don't expect anymore than you see on TV. Laclair is a nice little town, cute shops and good restaurants.
