Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to North Carolina. They plan to film episodes of the hit series American Pickers throughout the region in the spring of 2018. American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on History. The hit show follows Wolfe and Fritz, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, the duo 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. Wolfe and Fritz 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 Stokes County’s hidden treasures. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques the pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-OLD-RUST.
