“American Pickers” TV personality Mike Wolfe is known for his giving nature and grateful attitude. This is why it’s no surprise the star shared a tribute to all those who’ve sacrificed for our freedom on Veterans’ Day today.

In an Instagram post, the star shared a photo of a painted rock that depicts the American flag and the words “Honor & Remember.”

In the caption, Wolfe states, “With gratitude every day. Thank you for your service and sacrifice. God Bless #veteransday.”

Further, Veterans Day is a time to reflect on the service our members of the armed forces have given to our country. The day honors the sacrifices those servicemen and women have dedicated both in the United States and overseas.

Additionally, many people will thank and tribute veterans today as their contributions have helped secure our freedom. Wolfe’s mention to vets everywhere is a beacon of appreciation the star feels about those who gave their time and dedication.

‘American Pickers’ Star Shares ‘Kid-Pickers’ Book

While Mike Wolfe has been a professional junker since his early years, he continues to love the industry. He’s been all over the country picking estates, barns, and homes for decades now. During his time, he’s found plenty of treasures, unique antiques, and many other trinkets of interest.

However, it’s because of this that the “American Pickers” star also wanted to pass along his knowledge to a younger generation. What better way to do that than write a book?

The book “Kid Pickers: How to Turn Junk into Treasure” aims to “offer tips on collecting, sorting through flea market offerings, asking relatives about family heirlooms, and much, much more. In the process, kids will pick up history, research skills, and new hobbies galore (and maybe even help clean the attic).”

Of the project the star had this to say:

“There’s nothing like it out there,” Wolfe said. “It teaches children when they find things, they can learn about their family’s history and history in general. It’s teaching them to repurpose and recycle. These kids are even decorating their rooms in vintage.”

Additionally, a book isn’t the only project Wolfe has been working on. He recently developed an Airbnb in a small Tennessee town so that people and fans of the show could stay the night in a house filled with cool antiques while exploring the quaint neighborhood.

“Some people may not know, but for the past 30 years, I have been selling to designers and decorators. It has been a major part of my business. This is the first time that I’ve been able to utilize that experience inside my own space for other people to experience.”
