Do you hoard old, interesting and/or vintage treasures/junk? Have you always assumed that television cameras should be pointed at you? Well, maybe you should let the producers of American Pickers know you exist because they will be filming in Humboldt County in March! Be our star, Humboldt hoarder!
LoCO admits that it was not aware this show existed. Thankfully, the Internet informed us that American Pickers is reality show airing on the History Channel in which a pair of antique enthusiasts roam the United States looking for collectibles as well as the often colorful characters that covet them. While this was news to us, when we asked around our virtual office KWPT DJ Carole Ann said “I LOVE AMERICAN PICKERS!!” and since LoCO acknowledges that Carole speaks for the people, please enjoy the following release from the Humboldt Del-Norte Film Commission:
California is excited to welcome Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and Antique Archeology to the area. The team will film episodes of their hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout California. Filming is scheduled for March 2016.
AMERICAN PICKERS 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.
AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore what you may have. They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what they look for: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, pre-50’s western gear.
AMERICAN PICKERS is produced by Cineflix Productions for History. New episodes air Wednesdays at 9pm ET on History.
