Perhaps one of the most watched collectible hunting programs has just come to your backyard.
“American Pickers,” a popular TV show focused on buying and selling antiques, plans a return to Wisconsin in July. They are looking for leads all over the state, especially interesting characters with interesting items.
“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of “picking” antiques on The History Channel. The hit show follows skilled gatherers Mike Wolfe and Danielle Colby as they hunt for America’s most precious antiques.
Along the way, they want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional objects. The Pickers have seen a lot of rusted gold over the years and are always looking to uncover something they haven’t seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary objects and hear fascinating stories about them.
Sarah Perkins, producer of “American Pickers,” said that while the pandemic begins to show signs of slowing down, the show will continue to observe and obey local COVID-19 safety laws and procedures.
“We understand that with the proliferation of COVID-19, we are all facing very uncertain times,” Perkins said. “At ‘American Pickers’ we take the pandemic very seriously and will follow all guidelines and protocols for safe filming as stated by each state. While we plan to be in Wisconsin in July, we will continue to reschedule if conditions worsen. Regardless, we are delighted to continue to reach out to the region’s many collectors to discuss their years of collecting.
