The good news for this show is that they show a LOT of junk.................. And give the history of many of the items................

But do we really need to see all the SIGNS !?!?!?!?!?! 

It seems that every show they always find a sign for a gas station or cigarettes or something.  They make a big deal out of how wonderful it is and how "collectors will pay BIG money" for it. I guess if I was a "collector" of signs I would have to live in a warehouse or some other place with LOT'S of wall space.

And do we really believe they drive that van to all these places?

I feel sorry for that gal that they have working for them. She shows off her tattoos almost every show. So she ruined her body for all to see.

I have not watched TV in years so I did not realize that show was still on. What always drove me crazy about that show was the fact that they never showed what these people ended up doing with those items that they bought. Speaking as one who loves antiques you would think that I loved the show, but I did not.

Yes...………………..I like to see the antiques also...………...But they never show them being SOLD !!!!!!! or what they really got for them...……. And they spend WAY ! too much time on old signs.
 
Pawn Stars" is kind or the same way about selling items, but they have more stupid talent there..

They do show the purchases being resold, just not as often as being picked.

Look it to it before arguing about just to get a response from someone - maybe you'll garnish a little more respect.
They do have a business.
Been to the Nashville location.
There is a LOT more to know about them than the basic trivia you are going on about...and not all of it is pretty, much less complimentary.

Seems like a clever exit strategy.......See ya, wouldn't want to be ya!

This show, along with Pawn Stars, show what is being taken-in or bought, but, never what the buyers do with  the items such as reselling  and what they ultimately make on the items.

She probably is aware of all her tats, and besides, she is probably making good money.

Yea, the picks are indeed totally staged and prices agreed upon in advance (often picked and negotiated by others).

Missed that part - and indeed, yes. Danielle Colby is just another survivor of the Great Crayola War on the side of the Jehovah's Witnesses, a burlesque dancer, a clothing designer, a past female Roller Derby queen (and team owner, as is her sister)...and, well...yadayadayada...the woman's been around the block, per se...
