Canadian Pickers follows two highly-skilled pickers – Sheldon Smithens, an antiques dealer, auctioneer and appraiser by trade, and his partner Scott Cozens, a full-time lawyer and life-long picker – as they rummage through old barns, messy yards and abandoned attics in search of objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value. Sheldon and Scott scour towns across Canada in search of ‘rusty gold’ – an assortment of wonderful objects that many people think is just useless junk. Each pick explores the history and stories behind these objects – from a hand-painted Depression-era circus poster and a massive butcher block table in Ontario, to vintage Charlottetown theatre seats – and introduces a variety of captivating people from all across Canada with fascinating stories to share.
