Watch Out "American Pickers" -- North Dakota Has Pickers Of Its Own!

Posted: Updated:

 

"American Pickers" right here in North Dakota -- except it's not, but it could be.

In the land of oil and gas, it's an oil and gas primitive auction, with finds worthy of the popular "American Pickers" TV show.  Except here, the crowd is bigger -- and the "actors" are shy.  One auctioneer went on a mission to find a lone buyer to go on camera -- but came up empty-handed.  The reason given -- no one wanted their wives to know what they were buying.  One seller wasn't shy, though.

Kevin Frith, a memorabilia seller from Devil's Lake, says, "I've been doing this for ten years, and it's been steadily growing every year.  I think probably your TV reality shows like 'Pawn Stars,' 'Rick's Restorations,' 'American Pickers' have all had something to do with it.  It's a really hot item right now."

Single-day sales at typical auctions have been known to yield up to $30,000 dollars.
They're held most Saturdays, beginning at 10:00 a.m., at either the 4-H Building off the Bismarck Expressway or Gateway Mall.  For more information, go to www.northstarauction.com.
