American Pickers

Danielle Colby and Mike Wolfe star in the History Channel’s American Pickers.

American Pickers are returning to New York this summer and plan to film episodes of The History Channel’s hit  television series throughout Long Island in August.

American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on The  History Channel. The hit show follows 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, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten  relics. Along the way, they want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. They hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the  way. The Pickers 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.  

Collectors interested in being considered for the show should reach out by phone at 646-493-2184 or email [email protected]. Please note that the Pickers only pick private collections, so NO stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses, or anything open to the public.

The History Channel’s documentary series “American Pickers” has announced that it will film episodes throughout New York this summer.

Show hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz will scour the Empire State for hidden gems and vintage items that may have been given up as junk, according to a recent press release.

The show, which airs at 9 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesdays, explores the fascinating world of antique “picking.” As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Wolfe and Fritz continue their 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.  They typically look for collections that include vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, early firefighting equipment, vintage musical equipment, automotive items and clothing.
