For the past 15 years Joe Willard has made his living picking antiques and industrial goods. Willard worked for more than 30 years in wholesale electronic distribution. He retired as a VP/General Manager to go full time into picking. I've made money and I've made mistakes, Willard says. But I've always had fun. While Willard is attracted to guy stuff - tools, cameras, radios, anything with grim - he is always on the lookout for treasure in other people's trash.
