The History Channel's "American Pickers" will be returning to the West Coast soon and are looking for local collectors who would be interested in having their collections on display for a national audience.
Joshua Kerlin, producer of the popular show, said that they will be looking to meet with collectors who might have some unique and interesting items for their show to feature in an upcoming episode. "We are looking for different, unusual and unique items, something we have never seen before with an extraordinary story."
Local farmer Marc McCaslin was featured in an episode of the show during their most recent West Coast trip. "They were so nice and it was a wonderful experience," said McCaslin.
Kerlin said that they are looking for individual collectors who would like to share their finds with America. "A lot of the items we feature have such a unique and interesting history and story behind them," explained Kerlin.
Those interested in sharing their collection can contact the show at 646-493-2184 or [email protected]. Include full name, city and state, contact information and a brief description of your collection. "American Pickers" only feature private collections, so no stores, malls, museums, auctions, businesses, or anything open to the public will be chosen.
The team will contact individuals who they think would make a good story. "Everyone has things that mean so much to them, and sometimes those items can mean so much to our audiences, be they big items or small."
