AMERICAN PICKERS To Film In New Jersey and they want to buy your very old stuff!

New Jersey 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 New Jersey. Filming is scheduled for early August.

American Pickers Mike and Frank as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories.

Like antique dealers, pickers need a fabulous eye, especially when evaluating potential purchases that are covered in mildew, buried under dust or broken into fragments. It’s a risky business, too: after all, one person’s trash doesn’t always translate into another’s treasure. Or, as Mike and Frank put it, “You’re only as good as the last deal you made.”

Where do pickers track down their wares? Often, it’s way off the beaten path, in rural towns across the country, or right on the side of the road, especially on garbage pickup days. Sometimes they literally end up going from door to door, hoping to explore an abandoned barn or a basement packed to the gills with junk and gems.

If you have a large collection or want to refer someone to Mike and Frank, email: your name, number, address and description of the collection and photos to: 855-old-rust.

There are new episodes of AMERICAN PICKERS every Wednesday at nine (9)pm / eight (8)pm central. You can watch it on our local History channel. Because we all live in different areas, there is not one central channel for the History Channel. Check in with your local television listing to find the correct channel number.

Good luck trying to make a buck and happy picking!
