The History Channel’s “American Pickers” is coming to Georgia, and producers are looking for folks with interesting personal collections to pick.
On the television show, antique collectors Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz travel the country looking for hidden gems.
Specifically, Wolfe and Fritz are looking to buy old advertising signs, motorcycles, old toys (tin, wind-up and cast iron), pinball and slot machines, taxidermy, early Boy Scout items, pre-‘60s TV merchandise, musical instruments, Civil War antiques, vintage gas pumps, sports memorabilia, Houdini items, old rodeo items, folk art, early Halloween items, vintage sports collectibles, firefighter collectibles and pre-‘50s western/equestrian gear, among other items, according to a flyer sent to the Cochran-Bleckley County Chamber of Commerce.
They do not want farming/agriculture items, tools, glassware, appliances, tractors, stoves or country primitives. The pair will not pick retail shops, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public, the flyer states.
Never miss a local story.
To be considered, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The email must include pictures and descriptions of the items, along with your name and phone number.
A producer told the chamber that the show will be in Georgia sometime between now and April.
