The American pickers want you!
Mike Wolff and Frank Fritz from the show American Pickers on the History channel are coming to New York State.
The two aren’t sure yet which County in the State they’re going to visit though.
They are looking for people who personally own a slew of antique items from old toys, bikes, art and collectables.
Show Producer Jodie Freidman said “right now they are just looking for leads throughout the state before they decide where to visit.”
They are not looking for farming and agricultural items, appliances, stoves and tools.
