The Picker's have really ruined the collector's market by over paying for many items. They can over pay because they do very well at both of their stores, and they make a lot of money for each episode of the show. Many of the long distance "picks" involve transporting the picker's and camera crew's vans by flatbed, and the crew flies in to produce the footage. People that they "pick" are contacted beforehand to find out what types of items they have, and if they will be willing to sell. It is fun to watch to see the piles of stuff people accumulate, and sell for a profit. Prices for antique petrolianna, signs, gas pumps, ECO air meters and oil cans have skyrocketed.
