Mike Wolfe from American Pickers

I am sure many of you have watched American Pickers at some time or another.  I watch it when I can. I enjoy seeing Mike and Frank checking out items across the U.S. Wish I could make a living doing that!

  I  saw Mike Wolfe over the weekend. He was at Scott’s Antique Market on Saturday here in Atlanta.   I actually saw him on Friday too. I gave him a copy of my book ‘The Coca-Cola Bottle’. I thought he might find it an interesting read.  He liked the book.  I only had a chance to speak to him briefly, but enjoyed it. 

Here we are at Scott’s Antiques….Mike Doug at Scotts

    Doug, Karleen and I saw him in Sandy Springs on Friday. He seems to be a genuine NICE guy. Took plenty of time to talk to each person. Glad you got a chance to see him at Scotts. I can’t believe he had much “Picking” luck there.

      I was able to see him Friday in Kennesaw. They were getting us through line quickly, since he had another appearance in the afternoon. They wanted to be sure everyone had a chance to see him. I heard Mike did find a few things at Scott’s. I didn’t find anything though.

      Being a collector and author I have had a chance to meet a few famous people. A few years ago I was able to interview an artist Todd White. Here is the interview: https://cocacolabottleman.wordpress.com/2010/09/23/sponge-bob-square-pants-a-british-princess-and-coca-cola-light/
      I also was able to interview Charles Strouse for my upcoming book. You may not recognize his name, but you will recognize his music. He wrote songs for the Broadway Shows Bye Bye Birdie and Annie. He also wrote the theme song to ‘All in the Family’; Those were the Days. He wrote music for several commercials for The Coca-Cola Company in the 1970’s and 1980’s. He was very interesting to talk to and funny. I’ve also met with various authors of books (Mainly books on Coca-Cola) over the years and met some of The Coca-Cola Company Executives, etc.
      So, it has been exciting that collecting and my book has opened some doors that I otherwise would have never had a chance to go through.
