This is our first post explaining why we are pickers. As stated on our home page, I can remember at the age of 3 being allowed to pick through discarded items on the side of the mountain. At the age of around 8-9 some of my friends and one of my sisters had been out all day rafting miles from home. We found old abandoned homes on the side of the mountain and decided to pursue. Floors caved in but enough room to reach the stairs that somehow we managed to climb through the cracks missing runs but we did it. It’s the thrill of the FIND… that’s a high you never forget. We found old silver pennies from WWII, stamps, just cool old stuff.
That’s why we do what we do..the thrill of the find, and sharing them with others.
