I don't know if this was mentioned elsewhere. I did a search but didn't see anything.

I was watching my recording of American Pickers from earlier Wednesday evening and they stopped by:

Garrett Auto Mart
1133 W Gentry Ave
Checotah, OK 74426
(918) 473-5025

They are talking to the owner, Benny, and they look at an old Trade Winds Motor Hotel palm tree sign that Benny wanted $800 for. They offered $500 and he turned them down.

The sign was pretty weathered. However, it was cool to see.

The pickers get excited about motorcycles and old oil cans, but I always find myself trying to look off camera to see the Tiki stuff they are passing up. Neat to see an old sign get some attention.
