Highway 181 Mini Storage, a self-storage facility in Fairhope, Ala., will be featured tomorrow night on an episode of the History Channel’s television show “Picked Off.” The facility was discovered by producers of “American Pickers,” who were drawn to the facility’s 181 Market, a community marketplace featuring more than 50 vendors each weekend.
Each Friday through Sunday, 181 Market merchants sell antiques, collectibles, household goods, clothing, sporting goods, tools and other items. There is also fresh produce and food service.
“Picked Off” pits four teams of pickers trying to find interesting and valuable items at designated locations. The teams start with $100 in cash and must negotiate for items they believe offer the most profit potential. The pickers compete through stages, with one team getting eliminated after each round. The winning team earns $10,000.
In celebration of the facility’s notoriety, a “Picked Off” viewing party will be held locally at Old 27 Grill. An Antique Tractor Show and Flea Market will take place after the episode airs.
