Recently, we drove over to Nashville, Tennessee to enjoy ICE! at Gaylord Opryland for the holidays. We took a few minutes to visit Antique Archaeology Nashville, the 2nd store of American Pickers’ Mike Wolfe. It is always fun to see some of the items that Mike and Frank picked on recent episodes of the show. If you are fans of the show and close to Nashville, here are a few things to know before you go.

Antique Archaeology: Nashville, Tennessee
On our Midwest 7 Day Road Trip, we took the time to tour the store in LeClaire, Iowa. This store in Nashville is very similar and offers many of the same types of items. You can buy souvenir type merchandise like t-shirts, coffee mugs and magnets but there are also many of the unique and unusual pieces of rusty gold that Mike picks on each episode.
The Nashville store is located in an old warehouse with other unique and offbeat specialty boutique stores. Take the time to wander through the other shops after visiting Antique Archaeology to find some one-of-a-kind gifts.
From the minute you walk into the store, you will see some of the classic pieces that have been found on various episodes. Some of the pieces are listed as not for sale but stay on display so other fans of the show can come in and enjoy them as well!
If you are fans of the show on the History Channel, then you will have fun talking about some of the iconic pieces on display. Don’t forget to look up! There are many bikes and signs hanging from the ceiling!
Antique Archaeology Nashville is Mike’s second location. Located just a few blocks away from downtown Nashville, you can find us in the old Marathon Automobile car factory dated from the early 1900s right along I-40.
Here we have many items from Mike’s personal collection of items he has picked on the show. We also have the unique Rustoration Lighting for your home, your favorite Antique Archaeology gear, plus new picks that you may have seen on the show. And you never know who’s gonna “pop” in.
Tune up your guitar and stay a while. Nashville’s always been pickin’…
Things to Know
- The store is small and may get crowded on busy days, but when we were there on a snowy, holiday weekday, there were no crowds.
- Check parking options on the street and across the option (but don’t assume that all parking is free.)
