Thrift TV Giveaway: American Pickers Season 1 DVD

American Pickers is a popular thrifter-friendly program in the same vein as Auction Hunters and the perennial classic Antiques Road Show.

Mike and Frank of American Pickers are living the dream, traveling the country and excavating vintage treasures previously languishing in barns and stacked in garages. American Picker's goal isn't merely giving neglected items a second chance. As the intro to the show goes:

"What most people see as junk...we see as dollars signs."

This is an excellent show for re-sellers and vintage lovers alike to watch, I always take notes on successful hunting and re-selling. Mike and Frank really know their facts.

Win a Complete Season 1 DVD for American Pickers

The American Pickers show producers sent me a Complete Season 1 DVD to giveaway to a blog reader. It has 3 DVDs and 7 hours and 32 minutes of footage. Here's what you can do to win one:

  • Leave a comment on this blog post
  • Follow Thrift Core on Twitter for an extra entry
  • Join Thrift Core's Facebook Group for an extra entry
  • Tweet about the giveaway for an additional entry 
  • Stumble this post on Stumble upon for an extra entry
  • Write a blog post about the giveaway for an extra entry
  • Leave a comment and let me know when you stumble, join facebook, twitter, etc.

A full review of the show will come soon! The series debuted on January 18, 2010. The premier episode of American Pickers produced 3.1 million total viewers, making it the highest rated History channel debut since Ice Road Truckers in 2007. It's a testament to the huge number of fellow vintage lovers in America. We are not alone!

I'll announce the Giveaway Winners Friday December 10, 2010! Good luck!



Disclosure: The producers of American Pickers asked to send me two DVDs for this Giveaway. I'm not paid for this review.

  7. We've been watching Pickers from the very first episode - great show! Only thing, wish they would pay attention to more housewares, paintings, etc. and less to bikes/motorcycles. But still an excellent show. Would like to win that DVD - oh, and I tweeted the giveaway =)
