American Pickers

The American Pickers team filmed an episode with my mother in New Concord, NY and over lunch, I asked Mike and Frank if they would ever consider traveling abroad to pick. They were looking for a fresh way to open their fifth season so I flew to Sicily and returned to the U.S. with some treasures from the island.  The next thing I knew the entire Pickers crew and I were on a flight to explore Italy together.

An article my father penned for the local paper details the account:

Here are some “behind the scenes” shots from the filming:
