Several years ago, one day, a pleasant young man came to my home and handed me a piece of paper with a list of things he was interested in buying. We talked for a bit & I told him that yes there was everything on his list in the hoard but none of it was mine and I could not sell anything. Last month I watched that American Picker show on Netflix for the first time and that is exactly the way it happened here.
Maybe they should do some cross over shows! What amazes me is most of the hoarders on American pickers are men and usually older men who refuse to sell anything or not much of anything - even though they are 70 or 80 years old - they are holding on to the stuff. However on hoarder shows - it is mostly women from what I have seen - and their stuff mostly goes in to the dumpsters.
