American Pickers is coming to Illinois. The popular History Channel show is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’
Hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, and their team are scheduled to film episodes in Illinois in late April and early May.
The show follows Wolfe and Fritz as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques–from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles, to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. The team hits the back roads from coast to coast on a 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.
With American Pickers coming to Illinois, they are looking for leads and would love to explore your buried treasure. Some of what they look includes 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 your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 855-old-rust.
