Connor "Youngest Picker" McCrory is the face and the reason why Estate Sales By Connor was formed. His love for yard sales, antiques and anything vintage started at an early stage. At the age of 4 he began collecting vintage Lionel trains! Then, at the age of 5, After watching "Auction Hunters", "American Pickers" and "Storage Wars," when other kids were watching cartoons, he decided that he was going to collect antiques and own an antique store or an auction house when he got older.

By the time he turned 6, Connor ran into Barry Weiss from Storage Wars at a restaurant in LA. He boldly went up to Barry who was eating dinner and told him he was going to buy storage lockers like he does when he got older. Barry said “You are the youngest picker that I ever met, who is for real,” Barry then wrote Connor a note, saying “Connor, please stay in school and out of the Storage Lockers!” He was born with congenital heart dis-ease and was told he’d need open heart surgery at 6 months old. Now, nearly a decade later, Connor who has never had surgery or taken any prescription drugs, is vibrant and healthy. Because of his heart condition, Connor can’t play sports like most kids and it hasn't stopped him doing what he loves most...Estate Sales.

Last year at an estate sale, Connor met Allen Haff from Auction Hunter's. Allen was impressed with Connor’s knowledge of antiques and passion for negotiating. He filmed Connor for two days for a possible segment on the show, as his apprentice, but the network decided not to use the segment in the end. Connor’s passion is to educate everyone he meets about antiques and collectibles. He has taught the principal of his elementary school, Mrs. Acuff, how to buy vintage art deco diamond rings and how to spot Bakelite jewelry. Recently at the Vintage Art Pottery Show, he was discussing Roseville and Weller pottery with one of the most acclaimed dealers in the field. “I go to garage & estate sales weekly to buy & sell antiques. After watching "Auction Hunters", "American Pickers" and "Storage Wars," I talked my mom into letting me sell at The Glendale Flea Market and The Topanga Canyon Flea Market and selling on-line, of course I need her help because I can't spell big words. I am glad that my mom and I are doing estate sales now, because I love to dig through garages and house full of a lot of stuff because I know what is valuable.”, States Connor. In August 2013, Connor was hired by William Seippel, CEO of Worthpoint Corporation and WorthPoint.com, the premier web destination for the art, antiques and collectibles community.
