Antique Archaeology

This store is one of two antique shops owned by an antiquer from the TV show American Pickers. More of a tourist shop now -- t-shirts and magnets -- but there are a few antiques here and there.

More of a television set and souvenir shop than an antique store, but still worth a stop. Go later in the day right before the store closes (6 pm) to avoid crowds.

The Antique Archeology shops were a fun, unexpected side trip on our way to Minnesota! Le Claire is a cute little town right on the west bank of the Mississippi River.

American Pickers! Boomshakalaka. And an awesome atmosphere in the downtown area of LeClaire, IA. Right on the Mississippi River.

Antique Archaeology - Home of American Pickers

The original home of the guys from the "American Pickers" TV show. With the addition of a new building, they have over twice the room for items seen bought on the show, plus many more items. While many items are "Not for Sale," fans will definitely spend money on hats, shirts, and signs sporting the show's logo.

Rumor has it that sometimes Mike, Frank, and Danny D. are on site. On our visits, there have been a bevy of young, friendly guys and gals that are eager to talk to customers as well as sell them their merchandise.
