The Queen of Rust

Lover and collector of all things vintage

Known for her role on History’s ‘American Pickers’, Danielle Colby is a lover & collector of all things history and currently starting her 9th successful season with Mike and Frank.  When Danielle isn’t keeping the boys in line you can find her dedicating her time to performing, producing and advocating. Danielle is executive producer of a historically significant  documentary about legendary burlesque performer ‘Tempest Storm’.  She is an ambassador for 'Batey Girls', a jewelry design program dedicated to empowering young girls and women victimized by sex trafficking and domestic violence within the Dominican Republic.  Danielle is also set to hit the road later this year to start touring with her band 'Gin Rummy'. 

"My work on American Pickers reflects my real life passion for history. The beauty lies in the story. With out a back story there is little value to vintage.  From our past we learn where to direct our present and future humanitarian efforts. This is the mentality that keeps me searching for answers and back stories that will help nurture the human spirit and at times allow us to sit in quiet reflection with the more macabre side of history… The darker side we tend to forget or neatly tuck away out of sight. My goal is to bring to light all sides of history, lay them out in front of you, the viewer and allow you to become an involved steward of history yourself".
