The American Pickers are headed to Georgia in March and they are looking for leads throughout the state, specifically interesting characters with interesting items and lots of them! THEY WANT US TO HELP SPREAD THE WORD IN OUR AREA Attached is a brief bio of the show, as well as a list of items that they are looking for – don’t feel limited to this list, it is just a starting point to give you an idea, they are open to other things as well.
AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on the History Channel. 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.
Hitting the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank earn a living by scouring the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns. The best part of their journey is meeting the unique characters along the way, each with a story to tell about the history of their collection and their own lives.
Mike and Frank bring the past to life and recycle America as they go. They use their determination, expertise and charm to strike the ultimate deals and discover just what it takes to re-sell a newly founded antique in a competitive market.
