'American Pickers' to pick through NJ in August

Antique collectors, rejoice: History Channel’s “American Pickers” is coming to pick through your garages and sheds.

Hosts Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team will come to New Jersey in August to film multiple episodes of the show, which chronicles their experience “picking” through private antique collections for pieces of history.

“As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics,” said a release from production company, Cineflix. “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.”

This marks the team’s second visit to New Jersey after filming an episode here last August.

Wolfe and Fritz pick exclusively through private collections, avoiding anything — stores, malls, flea markets, museums, or auctions — open to the public. Anyone interested in pitching their collection for potential picking can reach out to the American Pickers team with a name, phone number, location, collection description, and photos via email at americanpickers@cineflix.com, or via phone at 855-OLD-RUST.
