Staff report

OHIO – American Pickers is coming to Ohio in October.

The History Channel show will film episodes throughout Ohio. They contacted the Southwestern Auglaize County Chamber of Commerce to get the word out about the opportunity.

American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the world of antique ‘picking’ on the History Channel. The show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.

Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.

They are looking for leads and would love to explore what people in Ohio may have. They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what they look for include: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, pre-50’s western gear.

It should be noted that Mike and Frank only pick private collections so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.
