Winners Of Dime Store Thrift and American Pickers Giveaway!!

Thank you to everyone who left a comment!
Congratulations to: Glenda and Into Vintage! Email me your addresses and I will get your DVDs in the mail.

I am thrilled beyond words to announce a special giveaway from our guys Mike and Frank at American Pickers! I have in my hands TWO season one DVDs and will announce TWO winners on Thursday Morning.

American Pickers is one of our must-see shows every Monday night. You can visit them at The History Channel, find them on Facebook and of course watch their show.

If you haven't seen American Pickers yet, here is a well-worded description:

Part sleuths, part antiques experts, and part cultural historians – Mike and Frank’s adventures bring them to small towns across the country in search of weird and wonderful Americana. Each treasure hunt leads them to fascinating, quirky characters – everyday people with stories that open a window onto American life.

As professional “pickers,” these childhood buddies comb through memorabilia and artifacts, hoping to find treasures among the trash. Sometimes they make a few bucks; and sometimes they walk away with little more than the history of an item.


Leave a comment telling me why you would like to be on the receiving end of one of these DVDs!

Hi, my son introduced me to their show and we both love it!!! It reminds me of the two of us digging through boxes at yard sales.

OH... add my name to the mix... we don't get it here, so I have been known to watch past episodes on the internet.. : )

For the love of all things Vintage! There is a show on tv about our obsession??? That is so Fab! I can't afford cable, so I was not aware that there was such a show. I would be so honored to win this. Thank You.

Great giveaways! I'd love to win because being in Australia I miss out on all these fab shows :-(

I just saw the Louisville, KY house they visited a couple of months ago! Sadly, I don't have cable, but I travel a lot for work. I never miss a Monday episode in the hotel room! Would love to win a series to see the ones I've missed.

I almost fainted when I heard you had a copy of the show about my friends, (alright, friend used loosely) Mike and Frank. I go nuts when Frank holds an old toy and Mike with his bikes. I would quit my job in a second if they would ask me to come and pick with them. YES, Yes and yes I would love to watch the shows over and over.

I love American Pickers. My Dad is a packrat, so I come by it honestly myself. I see my Dad a bit in some of the older gentlemen on the show who don't know how they ended up with so much STUFF, yet don't want to part with much of it LOL.

Barbara at Oodles and Oodles said...

I need these DVDs - note use of "need" and not "want" - because in a misguided attempt at togetherness, I offered to watch "24" with my husband after our son went off to college, and since "24" was on at the same time, I missed these shows. Thank you for your attention to this matter. xo

Mary said...

add me in the mix please.
We don't have cable, and wait for the episodes to air on the internet via the history channel.
This is one show my husband and I sit and watch together and absolutely love. Always loving the thrill of the guys finds.

Thanks

I would love to win the series as I can't see the show because I don't subscribe to the cable channel it is on. I am a true, proud "picker" and have heard the show is awesome! Thanks and Merry Christmas!

I do a little "picking" during yard
sale season and these guys intrigue me....unfortunately I've missed some episodes due to schedule conflict (and no tivo!). Would love to have them on DVD. I
enjoy your blog.

Fantastic giveaway! My husband and I love American Pickers, one of the only shows we both like :) He travels often, so we miss watching together when he's away. I'd love the series to be able to hang with my hubby and catch up on the episodes we've missed. Thank you!!

I love that show - don't get to watch it near often enough. They make you feel like you're along for the hunt.
