Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and the team of the History Channel’s “American Pickers” will be traveling through Connecticut this summer with plans to film episodes of the show locally at the end of May.
“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the world of antique picking. The show follows Mr. Wolfe and Mr. Fritz, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.
Mr. Wolfe and Mr. Fritz consider themselves on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics as well as to meet interesting characters and to give historically significant objects a new lease on life. The duo also hope to learn a thing or two about America’s past along the way, sharing stories with their viewers.
“American Pickers” is looking for leads throughout the state. If anyone has a large, private collection of accumulation of antiques that the “American Pickers” can spend the better part of the day looking through, please send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-855-OLD-RUST. “American Pickers” considers private collections only rather than stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, business or anything open to the public.
