‘American Pickers’ filming in California
Antique collectors are encouraged to dust off their collections and share their stories with the crew from the “American Pickers” TV show.
The History Channel series is filming in California in January, and is looking for collectors to apply for the chance to be featured on the show.
The series explores the world of antique “picking,” following skilled pickers in the business as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics.
The show’s producers are looking for leads. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send your name, phone number, location, and description of the collection with photos to [email protected] or call 646.493.2184.
The Pickers do not pick stores, flea markets, malls, auction businesses, museums, or anything open to the public.
