Inspiration from AMERICANA’s Antique Pickers’ Home

americanpicker 085The home of Gay and Mike Crane is not dictated by trends. The interior style of this family residence is rather influenced by the favorite pieces the couple finds at estate sales, flea markets and industrial dumpster diving.

Gay and Mike have been collectors for years, in many states throughout the U.S. Love of picking and collecting has led them to create a cozy family dwelling which is like none of their neighbors.

“We select everyday pieces as much as we do the things which are unique or rare,” says Gay. “It can be an old rusty pulley that we find while digging through a closed factory or an advertising clock that we win at an auction. In either case, we love bringing the history of the piece into our home to give it a distinctive look.”

Gay and Mike now bring their decades-old contacts with the best places and people and years of skilled picking to AMERICANA.  The couple and their extended network of pickers assembles a monthly curated collection, which is sold exclusively at AMERICANA Classic Vintage.
