In Feb 2012, I was approached by the producers of Canadian Pickers (a spin-off from American Pickers) they were inquiring if I would be interested in being featured on the show. A scout flew out and checked out my collection and they indicated they were interested in shooting an episode at my residence.

At first I was a little hesitant, however a few more phone calls from the producers and I agreed to do it.

The episode was shot in March 2012. It was quite an experience, they were here filming for 9 ˝ hours. Was condensed into 15 minutes. All the camera’s were kind of unnerving. Usually, I’m a talkative individual…but, I think I came across as a quiet individual.

Sold them more than what was shown on TV. But, you have to sell the items, pretty cheap. All in all, I enjoyed it...it was fun.

Here's a link to their website and you can view the episode if you want to check out my collection. I'm the 2nd collector featured.

I hope you enjoy the episode as much as I did!

That's too bad. Will it work if you paste this in your browser

history.ca/canadianpickers/video/full+episodes+s3/macho+challenge/video.html?v=2282460709&p=1&s=dd#video

How about going to the Canadian Pickers web page, the name of the episode is Macho Challenge (Season 03, Episode 15).

I thought it was called "The World Wide Web"; either the USA or Canada I guess is not located in that "World". LOL

Maybe one of our Canadian friends could post the episode on "You Tube" so the Americans (and other collectors around the world) can enjoy Dave's collection...just a thought.

I'm assuming you have to sell the items cheap because they pay a decent location fee? That's what I've heard about American Pickers.

I appreciate all the positive comments. If anyone is in the area, let me know and stop by.

Not available in your country....I've had that happen to me for American shows. I believe it's for shows that have not been bought/ royalties paid for. Once an American network picks up the show it will be available.

I not computer savvy enough to post it to a "You Tube" video. As already suggested, I've been told that's what needs to be done.

I didn't get paid any fee's or compensation for the shoot. All the items they bought were real transactions and I did get paid for the items purchased.

Scott and Sheldon were fun to work with, I had a great day with them. After all, it's a show about picking and they have to show that they are making money on the items. Can't be expected to pay retail prices....that would upset all the pickers. No pressure to sell, although you can sense their disappointment.

Dave, you looked good on the episode and it was nice to see some of your collection. You are right about seeming a bit quiet but then they also edit everything so that their 'stars' are the ones who shine, not the people who get picked. I still wonder about how they decide upon what they want to deal on and what they ignore. I guess it is a matter of what makes good TV and what doesn't. Well don't quit your job yet, lol. Cheers, Don.
