It’s Picking Time in Connecticut

June 13, 2016

It’s picking time in Connecticut! The American Pickers of The History Channel are coming to Connecticut this summer to film episodes for the hit series and they want YOU to submit your vintage, interesting, unique or weird items.

“Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to Connecticut! They plan to film episodes of the hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout Connecticut with filming scheduled for this summer. AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques– from motorcycles, classic cars, and bicycles, to one-of- a-kind vintage memorabilia.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank continue their mission to recycle America by rescuing forgotten relics and giving them a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about American history along the way.

AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your buried treasure. They are on the hunt for characters with interesting and unique items.  Some of what they look for: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, early firefighting equipment, vintage musical equipment, automotive items, and clothing. They are always excited to find things they’ve never seen before and learn the story behind it.

If you or someone you know has a large, private collection send us your: name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-old- rust.”

AMERICAN PICKERS is produced by Cineflix Productions for History. New episodes air Wednesdays at 9pm EST on History.
