Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Located in an old car factory, Antique Archaeology Nashville sells repurposed items. Antiques and collectibles are carefully "picked" by owner Mike Wolfe, who stars on the History Channel's TV show "American Pickers." Wolfe travels the country to find old, unwanted products, haggles with everyday folk for a decent price, and then brings the finds to this site, where he and the staff restore them for resale. The small store is often crowded with fans of the show and of his work; you can visit the shop to see some of the items purchased on TV. Fans of the show can pick up t-shirts and various other paraphernalia here as well.

  • Very near. Sky high prices on picked items but novelty items plentiful for purchase. Worth a visit even if not can of show. Also walk around the entire old Marathon Motors building. Original brickwork and flooring. Really neat building lots of tools used on display throughout building. 1914 when it was opened in operation. Lots of history here.
  • Cool place to visit and see some very interesting stuff. While I didn't have the time to really buy anything that was antique, I did get a shirt with their logo... Unlike most places selling shirt these days that shrink up after one wash, the quality of shirt was excellent and I've washed it multiple times holding its size properly. Thank you for quality and still keeping the price a good one.
  • It is just the coolest place! Seen it on TV a thousand times and wanted to go. It is smaller than portrayed on TV though,but still awesome.We even got to see Lauren, didn't MEET her,just saw her. She was gone before we knew it. Anybody who loves the show will definitely love the shop.And yes it did seem like a gift shop,but it still had a lot of the stuff Mike and Frank picked,and that's what was cool.
  • Visited the Le Claire Iowa location last Aug..so this trip had to visit Nashville one while there. It was smaller, which involved a wait in line to enter, only ten minutes or so. It is located in older industrial area..kewl. Inside had nicely displayed pick items for sale and yes pricey. We did see items from their episodes..that was neat. Especially noticed the eyeballs at the cash. If your a fan it is interesting.
  • The store is definitely smaller than it appears on the show. My husband was so disappointed in the size. Also, a lot of items are not for sale. It's awesome that you get to see a lot of the items they have picked on the show, but most of them are not for sale. Parking is a bit crazy but there's a lot across the street. There's a bunch of other cute shops to look at too and a place to do whiskey tasting as well.

Where to stay in Nashville

Stay in downtown, midtown, the west end, or near Vanderbilt to be at the center of it all in Nashville. You'll find plenty of boutique hotels and major chains in all of these areas, which give you great access to the downtown music scene and beyond. While you can find a bit of everything in downtown Nashville, from larger hotels to apartment rentals, keep in mind that more affordable, and often quainter, options are located further from Broadway. Travelers looking to spend most of their time at the Grand Ole Opry should consider accommodations in the Opryland or Music Valley area near the airport.
