American Pickers' Danielle Colby Reveals The Best International City For Antique Hunting

Over the years, the titanic trio from "American Pickers" has traveled to almost every corner of the United States searching for a slew of sleek antiques. Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and Danielle Colby have hit all but eight states during their tenure on the TV show, and by now all three of them are experts at finding just the right knick-knacks for their own shop. Because of that, you might think that the team has seen everything. However, that's not entirely true.

Of course, the major antiquing blind spot in the series is that the team never travels outside of the United States. Otherwise, it wouldn't be "American Pickers," it'd be "International Pickers." That being said, while Mike, Frank, and Danielle probably haven't gone picking in every foreign country out there, they aren't entirely without experience. As a matter of fact, Danielle has gone on record stating one of the best international cities for antique hunting.

Picking in Paris is an antiquer's treat according to Danielle

For much of the time on "American Pickers," Danielle Colby has been known for holding the fort down at Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz's shop while they go out picking. However, Danielle herself is also no slouch when it comes to finding a good pick and has traveled with Mike on numerous outings. For that reason, she can be considered a pretty solid authority on what places are and are not good for picking. According to an interview she did with Monsters and Critics in 2017, Danielle considers Paris to be one of the best places in the world for picking.

"My favorite part of the country to go picking is out east! It is so much fun and you can find so many incredible items!" Colby said. "Outside of the United States, I love Paris. Picking in Paris is like nothing you've experienced in the states because the history is so much older and more power packed." This makes a lot of sense. As Colby said, Europe has a much longer history than the United States, so their antiques can go back much farther than what you might find on an episode of "American Pickers." So, if you ever find yourself in Paris, perhaps try picking. As far as Danielle is concerned, you'll probably find something worth buying.
