Can we draw American Pickers into celebration?

The News has learned of a possibility to give Early County’s Bicentennial Celebration national exposure on the History Channel.

Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team plan to film episodes of the hit series AMERICAN PICKERS, a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’, across Georgia this Winter!

The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most 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.

They are looking for leads. An episode filmed in Early County would be a great event for the Bicentennial Celebration. Everyone in Early County is asked to send AMERICAN PICKERS suggestions for a possible episode in Early County.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. 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.

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.

If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855- OLD-RUST.

Information on any suggestions should also be sent to the Bicentennial Committee at earlyco200@gmail.com or call 723-4522.
