“American Pickers” want to dig through your collection this spring.

Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are returning to North Carolina to film episodes of the hit series “American Pickers” throughout Spring 2018 and are looking for new collections, interesting stories and sites to visit.

“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 and learn about the history behind them.

Exact dates for Wolfe and Fritz’ visit have not been released as of yet.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Wolfe and Fritz are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. According to a press release, 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 are looking for large unique collections, interesting multi-generational family properties, or anywhere the Pickers can spend the better part of a day picking good stuff. The Pickers are looking for private collections, so retail stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public will not be considered.

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, please send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-OLD-RUST.
