One Person’s Treasure: TV ‘s “American Pickers” Coming to Region, Looking for Antiques

Mike Wolf and Frank Fritz, the respective faces of the History Channel series “American Pickers,” will be filming episodes of the show across New York in September and are looking for leads of large, private collections or an accumulation of antiques that they can spend the better part of the day picking through.

The documentary series features the travels of Wolf and Fritz as they journey the country’s back roads from coast-to-coast, antique-picking on a mission to recycle forgotten relics, meeting often-entertaining characters along the way and learning something new about America’s buried past.

Anyone with a large, private collection interested in a pickers’ visit is asked to send their name, phone number, location and description of collection with photos to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or call 855-OLD-Rust.  Note, the duo only pick private collections - so stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public are not applicable.
