We watch Pickers on a regular basis so we were very excited to visit their Nashville site. Unfortunately the majority of what was in the store was souvenirs...not antiques. There were some antiques, but not what you would expect and not a lot for sale.

Our first visit to this unique store was in june 2015. It's breathtaking. So much to see, so much to touch! It feels like you have to buy something. There's a story behind every item and if you haven't already, check out Mike Wolfe's American Pickers TV-program. Every weekend this place offers also live music. We've been playing there a... More

The shop was small but very cool to see in person. (There are other little shops in the attached old warehouse). There are t shirts as well as the items that were "picked." If ninths area and a fan of the show, is worth your time to stop by.

Being a fan of the show, when I visited Nashville I had to go visit the store. What I learned is that the Marathon Building is the star of the visit! Although Antique Archaeology is fun seeing items that were on the show, most of the items are labeled "Not For Sale, Mike Wolfe Personal Collection". So It ends up... More

It's a good place to buy a t shirt and trinkets related to the show. There are many things to buy that they have picked on the shows, but I saw more t shirts being purchased than antiques. If your in Nashville you might as well stop in and see it.

Marathon Village is great and this store is nicely done but if you are going here expecting to buy Antiques you will be disappointed. There are some very neat pieces on DISPLAY but that is just it, most are just display Not For Sale. The ones that are for sale are so ridiculously overpriced they might as well not be... More

This is great for the "Pickers Fan", Saw a lot of items the guys picked on TV repurposed for a new start. Very historical building with many little shops. Nice experience.

If you are into the Pickers thing you should stop by. Most of the "picked" items seem outrageously priced but what do I know? They have plenty of souvenirs so you can take something home. I thought the sign would be a lot bigger. You could walk right by it if you're not paying attention. Other artsy shops on the... More

Unlike much of the Nashville area, parking here wasn't a problem, in spite of 4 tour buses being here. The shop is what you'd expect if you've seen the show on TV. Some cool stuff, all prices. Some antiques, lots of history--and it's free to visit!
