‘American Pickers’ to film in Ohio


Staff report



SIDNEY — Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team plan to film episodes of the History Channel series “American Pickers” throughout Ohio with filming scheduled for this summer.

“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques—from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles, to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank 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.

“American Pickers” is looking for leads. They are on the hunt for characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what they look for: 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: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-old-rust.
