They plan to film episodes of the hit series “American Pickers” throughout the area at the middle to end of July 2020 said an email from show producers.

We understand that with the proliferation of COVID-19, we are all facing very uncertain times, and everything is changing daily. “American Pickers” is taking this pandemic very seriously and will be adjusting its schedule accordingly for the safety of those who appear on the show and the crew. However, the crew is excited to continue to reach the many collectors in the area to discuss their years of picking.

“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on the History channel.

The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.
