Armstrong episode of Canadian Pickers airs today

Stars of popular TV series try and make a deal with collector Allen Bensmiller

An Armstrong collector of antiques will shine during a popular Canadian television series.

Allen Bensmiller will be featured on today’s episode of Canadian Pickers at 8 p.m. on History Television.

Series stars Scott Cozens and Sheldon Smithens stopped by Bensmiller’s home in March to check out his collection of antiques and possibly make some acquisitions.

The teaser on the Canadian Pickers’ website says, “The Pickers scour interior B.C. for quality pieces and set a friendly wager: the one who picks the most macho item wins a beer. They zip around Armstrong, Abbotsford, and Mission.”

Bensmiller owns Allen’s Antiques in Armstrong.
