Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are returning to Connecticut. They plan to film episodes of the hit series American Pickers throughout Connecticut, with filming scheduled for this June.
American Pickers is a documentary series on History that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking.” 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.
