Time to Get Picked: ‘American Pickers’ Scouting Area

Screen-Shot-2016-04-21-at-12.59.36-PM-1024x569JEFFERSON CO., Pa. (EYT) – The stars of the History Channel series, “American Pickers,” may be coming to the Jefferson County area this summer to rummage through barns and basements in search of dirty, rusty treasures.

Self proclaimed “modern archaeologists,” Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are seeking locals with barns, warehouses, or junkyards filled with unique and interesting collections who are willing to sell their collectibles and be featured on the show.

Wolfe and Fritz previously rummaged through Seminole native Aldo Veronesi’s collection in an episode airing in August 2012. Veronesi’s 10 buildings full of stuff, collected over 35 years in the auction business, proved to be a lucrative find for the “Pickers.

Some of the items Wolfe and Fritz are looking to purchase in their upcoming tour through Western Pennsylvania include: motor scooters, old advertising signage, pinball and slot machines, airline collectibles, folk art, Civil War antiques, and more.

American Pickers, produced by Cineflix Productions for The History Channel, is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. This hit show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.

If you have a large collection or want to refer someone to Mike and Frank, email: your name, number, address and description of the collection and photos to: [email protected] 855-old-rust.
