‘American Pickers’ Is Coming To Texas And They Want To Meet You
If you are in possession of some "rusty gold," the cast and crew from History's 'American Pickers' want to talk with you. They show's production company has announced they are sending Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz to Texas in November. They have not released any schedules or maps, so at this point, it looks like they are open for hitting up all corners of the state. Where ever they can potentially find the best stuff, that is where they are going.
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 your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 855-OLD-RUST and leave a voicemail. You can also reach them on Facebook at GotAPick.
In a statement about coming to Texas, the show's producers also addressed how the tapings will be handled with social distancing and safety. They will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming as outlined by the state and CDC. If need be, they will reschedule tapings and travel if they have to. But for now, it is pull 'pick' ahead!
If you are unfamiliar with the show on History, here is a little background from History.com:
This isn’t your grandmother’s antiquing. Pickers like Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk or getting chased off a gun-wielding homeowner’s land. Hitting back roads from coast to coast, the two men earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person’s trash into another’s treasure. American Pickers follows them as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories. If you think the antique business is all about upscale boutiques and buttoned-up dealers, this show may change your mind–and teach you a thing or two about American history along the way.
