Got a collection of unique items and want to be on TV? Then your chance is on the way.
This spring, the History Channel show American Pickers, will be returning to Kansas and they are looking to make a deal.
"We are looking for large unique collections, interesting multi-generational family properties, or anywhere the guys can spend the better part of a day picking good stuff," American Pickers casting associate Nora Walls said. "Get in touch with us ASAP. Sorry, no retail shops or single items."
According to a press release, American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique "picking" on History.
The hit show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find size-able, 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," the press release said. "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."
The show was last in the area in July 2013 when they met with the late M.T. Liggett in Mullinville.
"Mike and Frank only pick private collections so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public," Walls said. "Mike and Frank, and their team are excited to come to Kansas.
"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."
The press release added, American Pickers is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure.
