‘American Pickers’ Seeking Local Antique Collections to Feature on History Channel Series

If you happen to be the owner of a large antique collection, you could be featured on the popular documentary series.

American Pickers, the History Channel documentary series starring expert antique “pickers” Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe, will film in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin this October.

The show, which currently has aired 17 seasons, follows Fritz and Wolfe as they road trip across the country hunting for rare and valuable antiques to sell in their shop, Antique Archeology. The duo aims to “recycle America,” restoring antiques and collectibles to their prime while learning about U.S. history. 

Prior to their arrival in Wisconsin, the show’s team is seeking leads on large, private antique collections to dig through. Interesting backstories and quirky personalities are a bonus. If you or someone you know is the owner of an antique treasure trove, e-mail your name, phone number, location and photos and descriptions to americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 1-855-OLD-RUST.
