This mix of documentary and reality show follows veteran "pickers" Mike and Frank on their travels around the rural United States. Friends for decades, the duo spends their days poking into forgotten barns and basement corners to unearth antique treasures, unusual items and fascinating scraps of history. The thrill of the hunt, punctuated by comedic moments on the road and with the often-eccentric owners of their best picks, is an ongoing theme. After filling the van with the best of their finds, return to their home base at Antique Archaeology, the store built of Mike's passion for rehoming his finds.
