'American Pickers' to visit South Jersey

'American Pickers' to visit South Jersey


The History Channel’s “American Pickers” TV show will be in the area to film episodes in early August, according to a statement from the show’s producer.

Hosted by Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz of Antique Archeology in LeClaire, Iowa, and Nashville, Tennessee, the documentary series follows the two as they go “picking,” or visiting private collectors to try to buy collectibles and antiques.

The show is looking for interesting characters with unique items, according to the statement by Cineflix Productions. Some of what they look for includes vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing and pre-1950s Western gear.

But they are open to just about anything with a good story, said Thomas Carrera, casting producer for the show.

Carrera contacted Egg Harbor City Clerk Meg Steeb for help in attracting participants and emphasized the show does not pick from antiques stores or malls, only from private collectors, Steeb said.

New episodes air 9 p.m. Wednesdays on the History Channel.

Anyone with a large collection or who would like to refer someone with such a collection is asked to provide the name, phone number and address of the collector along with a description of the collection and photos to, or call 855-OLD-RUST.
