Victoria ‘Tori’ Cooley On Swap Shop
Netflix’s Swap Shop follows the happening of a radio show (with the same title) that aired in rural Tennesee, for over the past 70 years. “The people of East Tennessee aren’t ever in a rush unless the Swap Shop is on,” this was how Netflix introduced its show. And it’s spot on!
As seen on the show, the residents were notified of new things that were up for sale, and people rushed in to bag themselves unwanted items to resell.
While there were multiple personalities on Swap Shop, joining Victoria and her right-hand man/store manager Larry for the show’s second installment were co-stars, Jason and his partner Bobby, Scott Jones and Dale Kyker, Leo and Danny, Jen and Doug, JP Mathes and Fiddling Leona, Sammie Isaac, and Mark Isaac, and Richard Davis and Garin Dickerson.
In case you’re interested in her partner, Larry D. Thacker is the owner of K & L Relics at West Main Antiques. When he’s not working at his antique show, the guy taught English at Northeast State Community College. Also, you might be surprised, but he’s a pretty good poet and a writer.
All excited to appear on Swap Shop with Larry, Victoria took it to her IG on Oct 2021, to share, “After nearly 2 years in the making our Netflix adventure is almost out! Season 1 featuring Larry and me drops in less than a month- November 9th! It’s hilarious and was so so fun.”
