Owner description: 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'll have your favorite Antique Archaeology gear, including our latest Nashville-exclusive designs, plus new picks that you may have seenon the show.

We loved that actual pieces that we have seen the pickers buy are in the store. It connects the show to its audience. Yes, the prices are high, but if you are looking for something special, old, or rare/unique, this place has it. What we really loved were all the neon signs that they have saved and re-purposed. We would have loved to have had the room in our car to bring one home. This is a great way to spend some time in Nashville, off of Broadway too.

Unless your a fan of show its not worth trip. Never seen a place try and sell t shirts for 45 dollars.

We were dedicated picker fans of the network show until our recent visit to Nashville. Live in Nebraska, married in Nashville, & decided to visit Mike & Franks Antique Archeology during our elopement. Very DISSATISFIED! As avid viewers of the program, my wife and i were surprised of the "outlandish hollywood prices"!! May have to switch to a different program Wednesday evenings as we were both hoping to bring home a token of what used to be our favorite program, but do the fact of a $45 dollar t shirt price tag?! We were forced to look & leave with NOTHING! Not even a $5 coozee. Avoid shopping here if your a "true picker!!!"
Sincerely, Mr & Mrs Manfre of Nebraska

We follow the show so to see one of the stores was a treat for us. There were some things that we thought we had seen them buy on the show. It was really interesting to see the variety of things they had in the store. Some were marked not for sale as they were from Mike's personal collection. We enjoyed it and it was one of the stops that the tour of Nashville stopped at.

It's actually smaller to me than it looks on the TV show. I was kinda hoping to see Danielle but no such luck. The people who were working there I had never seen on the show.

They have quite a few souvenirs (t-shirts, mugs, etc) plus the items you've seen them buy on the show. There are also pieces that are not for sale but it was cool to just look at them.

I will definitely be back just to see the place because I think it looks cool! The items were a bit pricey but I'm not interested in buying anyway.
