What happens when you go through life and never throw anything away?
Eventually your "ordinary junk" might be sought after by a collector who will treasure it. This week, Jason Davis is On-the-Road hunting for some of those impressive collections.
Meet a Minnesota farmer who has accumulated an amazing number of Coca Cola mementos and advertising pieces; a St. Paul woman who has gathered together an array of household items that used to be very ordinary, but now they're someone's treasures; and a man in southern Minnesota who has a strange collection of old, even ancient, washing machines.
There's lots more. Especially hats. Meet a guy who has barns full of thousands of them.
