The History Channel’s American Pickers will be coming to the palmetto state in January to film episodes for the show. The show is a documentary series that explores the world of antique “picking.” Episodes follow Mike and Frank, two skilled pickers, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques.

The show is searching for leads throughout the state, “Specifically interesting characters with interesting items and lots of them,” the announcement reads. “The way we find people and collections for our show is through spreading the word far and wide so that people know we’re coming to town.”

According to the announcement, the show is looking for different, unusual, and unique items: “They (Mike and Frank) are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.”

Anyone interested with a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend time looking through, should contact or call 855-OLD-RUST. Include your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos.

NOTE: Mike and Frank only pick private collections. No stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.
