  1. We have been to the Cedar Swap several times as a seller, we have enjoyed metting many people. All of the venders we have meet seem to be very nice and informed on the collectables they sell. The buyers are freindly and enjoy stopping by to talk and make purchases. We have had a great time every event we have been to and hope to come back many times in the future. Thank you to all of the great people we have met.

  2. Hello,

    My name is Alexa D’Argenio and I work for Cineflix Productions. We are working on a new show; created by the Producers of the hit TV shows “Canadian Pickers” and “American Pickers”. This new show, tentatively titled “Top Collector” will be a competition TV show, as several teams will set out in pursuit of the BEST PICK, ultimately earning the title of Top Collector!

    We are currently casting for amateur Canadian “Picking Partners”- two people that pick together anywhere from auctions, to flea markets, to barns to dumpsters (etc.)! We are looking for people that are charismatic, knowledgeable about collecting, know how to spot hidden treasures, and flip items for profit. Pickers who specialize in collecting items such as sports memorabilia, vintage toys, oil and gas memorabilia, pop culture items, cast iron, TV & movie memorabilia, and other interesting and unique items!

    If there is anyone you think might be interested in entering the competition and being a part of this show, we would love to hear from them! I am also attaching a flyer that you can post on your website, Facebook page, etc. or distribute as you see fit.

    For more information or to APPLY to be on the show, please email me at

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Happy Picking!
