CENTRAL VALLEY – Antique stores dot Main Street in towns like Exeter, Tulare and Visalia. In the part of California that still retains a rural core, Valley residents love local history and holding a piece of it in their hands. In that way, they have a lot in common with Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, the stars of the History channel’s American Pickers.

Earlier this month, the show announced that the documentary series will return to California to film new episodes this March. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them. As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics.

Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way. Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before.

They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them. American Pickers is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send us your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: [email protected] or call 855-OLD-RUST.
