Antique shows are popular for a reason: There’s something supremely satisfying about watching a homeowner score a massive sum of money off of a piece of junk they came across in their attic. Now in its 20th season, the docu-series has become as much about the hidden gems the trio finds as it is about the “Pickers” themselves. The long-running HISTORY Channel show is filled with action-packed sequences as Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and Danielle Colby Cushman travel the country in search of trash they can restore into major treasure.
And for those of you wanting a better sense of Alexandre’s aesthetic (other than women — which is obviously beyond reproach), here is one of his posters titled “Rider Jesus” from his website: (It’s only $24.99 for this three-color screen print numbered and signed by Alexandre!
) And just in case you missed the link above, Alexandre’s website is you want to check out more of his work!
Alexandre’s full name is Alexandre De Meyer and he sells t-shirts, posters, and postcards under the name Neuf Vies.
(Facebook page and website links) He describes himself this way in the “About Me” section: I’m a graphic designer artist from France, I work for bands, I create posters, covers artwork, logos, stikers, t-shirts design, merch design…
Or at least he did back in September when Danielle shared this next photo of her tie-clad beau along with an excited caption: “Happy happy day! The immigration office couldn’t have been nicer, that was an unexpected surprise.
Maybe it helped that they were watching an American Pickers marathon when we walked in 😉 “ It’s not clear just how long the two have been together, but Alexandre’s name looked familiar to me and when I looked through my old posts about Danielle I realized he was the one who had created the 4 Miles 2 Memphis logo just prior to Danielle opening her first location near Antique Archaeology in Le Claire, Iowa.Mike also heads up Antique Archaeology, his store that has locations in Le Claire and Nashville.Frank started collecting rocks and beer cans when he was young, and his passion for “antiques and junk” never quite went away.He is from Voiron France in the French Alps and is the kindest, most beautiful soul I have ever met.I adore his family and see why he is so wonderful, with parents like he has, it makes sense.That post was written in November of 2011, so they’ve at least had a working relationship since then.
