American Pickers with Robbie and Gary and Gene and Judy!
Are you a fan of American Pickers on the History Channel? Bill and his wife Carol are as well as even little Leo (goes to garage sales at 6 years old looking for "rusty gold"). Recently, Carol's brother Gary and sister-in-law Bobbi went to Nashville, TN and stopped into the American Pickers store (in the Marathon Factory building). They both were surprised and excited to see Robbie Wolfe, Mike's brother, who is in a lot of the episodes. Robbie goes on picking trips with the rest of the cast, or helps them out of a jam that they are in. Robbie told Gary to not smile, act serious and tough. If you know Gary, then you know that is not possible. Great photo of them and the interior of the store!
Gene and Judy Gillette recently went to visit their daughter in the Quad Cities region and so they took an afternoon to visit the American Pickers original store in LeClaire, Iowa. The show has made a tourist attraction out of the small buildings filled with stuff from the picking that goes on in the show. If you are planning a trip to Tennessee or Iowa, be sure to add these places on your must see list!
