“American Pickers” Danielle Colby’s Side Passion
There’s no doubt that throughout her career on “American Pickers,” Danielle Colby has come across a plethora of items that interest her personally. While her keen eye is always looking out for those unique finds which can be restored and sold, she also uses the hobby to feed her other passion – burlesque.
Growing up in a religious household, Colby didn’t think she’d ever take up burlesque as a passion. But the star was drawn to the sensual art form and continues to pursue it. She once said that picking inspires her burlesque pursuits as well.
“I love to collect vintage burlesque. So, anything that’s vintage burlesque or sideshow or oddities, I think are always really fun,” Colby told interviewer Sebastian Talbany.
She additionally commented that finding authentic costumes makes burlesque even more meaningful.
“It’s important for me to be able to go out and find these items,” she continued. “And so, they kind of go together very well because it’s the burlesque that keeps me picking, and it’s the picking that keeps my burlesque looking good and fresh but still have that traditional feel.”
Further, picking helps her learn something new everyday, no matter how long she’s been in the industry. There’s always a lesson to be learned and that’s something that keeps Colby so invested in the business.
“We pick so many different kinds of things that it’s a constant education every day,” Colby shared. “You get into those scenarios and I think I know everything and then I find out that there’s so much more history if you just study it well enough.”
With so many different interests and passions, we’re sure Colby will keep treasure hunting as a close partner to whatever she decides to do next.
