Have a private antique collection or a family barn filled with decades-old treasures? Well, if so, then we may something of interest for you.
Washington is excited to welcome Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and Antique Archeology to the area. The team will film episodes of their hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout Washington State. Filming is scheduled for October.
According to Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce Member Services Manager, Kaylee Hardman, the show is specifically interested in shooting right here in the Snoqualmie Valley – and are seeking leads on Valley sites and items that can be filmed for American Pickers episodes.
Hardman explained, “Specifically, they are looking for private collections to “pick,” meaning no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.”
AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.
Mike and Frank 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.
AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore what you may have. They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items.
Some of what they look for: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, pre-50’s western gear.
