If you’ve got a garage, barn, or attic filled with old treasures, junk, relics, antiques, or whatever other stuff you’ve been holding onto for a coupla’ years, the American Pickers from The History Channel are heading to Wisconsin this July, and they want to take a peek at your pickings! 

Described as not “your grandmother’s antiquing,” this longtime History Channel show features pickers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz who 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,” according to the History Channel’s description of the show. “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.” 

And this July, the show is heading to western Wisconsin, where they want to get in touch with local collectors to discuss their hidden treasures. 

“We are looking for different, unusual, and unique items too,” the pickers said in an announcement on Facebook. “Something we’ve never seen before and with an interesting story!” 

If this sounds like you, reach out to their phone number at 1-855-OLD-RUST (653-7878) or email AmericanPickers@cineflix.com. Be sure to share your name, city and state, contact information, and a brief description of your collection. You can also get in touch with the show at their Got A Pick Facebook page at facebook.com/GotAPick

This excludes stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses, or anything open to the public – they’re looking for private collections only.
