The show American Pickers follows expert pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they travel across the country in search of antiques.  They are “on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.”

The show has been aired since 2010 and presents a face of the “picking” movement. 

Mother Earth News describes picking as “the art of buying antiques from auctions and sales and people and selling them at a profit to antique shops. People who do this are known as Antique Pickers.”

American Pickers is produced by Cineflix Productions for The History Channel. New episodes air Wednesdays at 9p.m. ET on History.

If you have a large collection or want to refer someone to Mike and Frank, email your name, number, address and description of the collection and photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or leave a message at 1- 855-old-rust.
