The popular TV show American Pickers plans on coming to Minnesota and the surrounding area in October. The show starring Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz features the pair traveling coast to coast and exploring hidden treasures. Treasures as in vintage goods, antiques and good old fashioned junk that may be priceless if in the right hands. If interested they may make an offer and then attempt to match the purchased item with a seller or sellers that they are aware of through their many contacts.

A fellow vintage electric fan collecting friend of mine who has the most extensive collection in the world was featured on an episode a couple years ago. He's based in Madison, but I haven't seen the show or talked to him about his experience. I know of one Steele County man who told me he had been approached about being on the show but chose not to.

However if you have or know of someone who has a collection of unique items, American Pickers would like to know. Car and bike parts, advertising, old musical instruments or whatever you might have, you can send your name, address, phone number, location and description of your collection along with photos to americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-OLD-RUST.
