American Pickers to film in the area


The popular antique-hunting television show American Pickers is returning to Arizona to film in March. Show executives said they plan to film episodes of The History Channel’s hit television series throughout the area, but specific filming dates and locations are not yet available.

American Pickers is a documentary series that, according to a network news release, “explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on The History Channel. The hit show follows 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, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics,” the release continued. “Along the way, they want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. They hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

“The Pickers 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 executives said they are excited to continue reaching collectors in the area and discussing their years of picking and memorable stories. The show is looking for leads and is inviting those with great stories about their antiques – or just interesting old stuff – to share them with the network.

Those who believe they have a treasure worthy of the show, or know of a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques the Pickers could spend the better part of a day looking through, send your name, phone number, location, and description of the collection with photos to:; call (646) 493-2184; or visit them on Facebook: @GotAPick.
