American Pickers Looking for Locations in Vermont
The Cavendish Historical Society was approached today by representatives from the show “American Pickers,” -airs on the “History” channel-as they are looking for locations in Vermont where they can “pick” in October. Please note they are looking for large, rare collections that are not open to the public- no store, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, or businesses.
Below is the press release from the show, along with how to get in touch with them if you or someone you know is interested in participating.
Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to Vermont! They plan to film episodes of the hit series “American Pickers” throughout the region this fall. The showis a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.
As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank 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.
Mike and Frank 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 your hidden treasure.
