Danielle Colby also spoke about her adventures while filming the show. “While I definitely leave a piece of my heart behind with my AP and Detroit crew I’m thrilled to be returning to my Burlesque babies, teaching classes, performing, exercising my body regularly again (that rarely happens on the road as everything happens so fast with so many moving parts) and dancing!”

‘American Pickers’ Danielle Colby Reveals When She First Started Picking 

According to Your Daily Sport Fix, “American Pickers” star Danielle Colby previously spoke about what originally drew her interest in picking out. “I hung out with a lot of ladies at church, the more mature ladies. And they would kind of take me through their house, and bobbles, and things, and dresses.”

Danielle Colby further explained that she would take the items from the church ladies’ homes, and make them fit her. “My mom was a seamstress. So that’s where it kind of started for me, you know, necessity is the mother of invention.”

Meanwhile, Danielle Colby opened up about why history is so important to her. “History is really easy to love, because we really fall in love with history… it reminds us of the innocence of our life. Going back to childhood, going through your grandmother or grandfather’s closet.”

“American Pickers” star Mike Wolfe previously spoke about how Danielle Colby is a huge impact on the hit series. “When I was pitching the show for five years, [Danielle] was really inspirational to me, as far as like, you know, just keeping the wheels on the track. Saying, ‘Hey, you can do this! Don’t give up on it.’”
