I have been taking a much needed break from the road for the past three years and focusing my energy on saving money and planning for the future. Wow!! I guess it is time to grow up and think about these things.
I am back in Delray Beach, Florida and will start picking locally very soon. So stay tuned and thanks for following my adventure.
Ooh la la!!! A fresh pick – retro bathing suit
Just received an email from Christian with Big Fuel Communications in NYC. He wanted us to share this information with our fans.
To celebrate their client Chevrolet’s Centennial, they sent American Pickers’ star Mike Wolfe to the Woodward Dream Cruise, a classic auto show in Detroit, to find a Chevy vehicle from every decade (corvettes, camaros, volts, etc dating back to the 1910′s!).
Check out his adventure, it is pretty amazing.
If you all know me, then you know my love for vintage Corvettes. Hey I even have one on the front of my business card. :)
The other day while just driving around Delray Beach, I found a new little shop called The Funky Touch. This is the perfect place to find that one of a kind conversation piece. Their collections includes: Modern, Mid-Century, Antiques, Vintage, Retro, Lamps, Art & more.
The shop is located at 1550/1 North Federal Highway Delray Beach, Florida 33483 – Phone # 202-460-7722
Spotted this Vintage Suitcase for only $5.00
I chatted with the owner, Elizabeth Lammersdorf, she is a fellow picker and has a great eye for vintage and mid-century. She just moved to the area from Washington, DC to be closer to her mother. Her other business is called Betty’s Nest, which is a professional organizing company.
I would say this shop is worth a look. She gets new items every week.
I stumbled upon a charming antique shop today in Moultrie, GA at 15 Second Avenue, S.E.
Upon entering the shop I met Charlie & Lynda Belk, a little couple in their 70′s. Lynda told me the shop has been there over 36 years and they just open it up when they want to. Her husband Charlie used a cane and was adorable. He followed me around the shop, watching every move I made. Every time I looked back there he was, I found it very comical. I love shopping in the South, you never know the characters you gonna meet along the way.
The shop is full of lots of glasswear, antiques and unusual items. Wow! It was hot and I could only stay inside their quaint shop for about 15 minutes due to the heat index and lack of air conditioning.
Here are the top picks of the day
ACME EGG SLICER
Estimated Resale Value $15.00
1960′s ENAMEL FLOWER PIN
Estimated Resale Value $8.00
