  • I have watched that show a few times, and its amazing what they fnd. But a lot of times i feel like they are trying to take advantage of some of the elderly people they come across... They act all polite, buy a few pieces of junk before they move in for the real thing they want, even if they person has said they wont sell it, they ask like 50 times. And i have seen some people break, and sell it. after the constant questioning about the item. Maybe its just me?

  • Yep, we watch the show, and I also think it would be fun to go on a picking adventure, but some of those places I would never want to go in. I'm terrified of snakes.

  • I would SOO love to do what they do. Me and the hubby watch it allot. Im good at knowing the value of some of their stuff. It amazes my hubby that I know about junk as he calls it, but old treasures are BIG business these days.

  • Yes. Worked as a museum curator's assistant in highschool loved going through "donations" to find things that were worthwhile! I don't know I would need someone to do heavy lifting but it would be fun!
