Do you have a unique collection or a really rare collectible?

American Pickers wants to talk to you.

“The American Pickers, Mike and Frank, are heading to Alabama this winter, and we’re looking for leads throughout the region, specifically interesting people with interesting items and lots of them,” said Cat Raynor from American Pickers. “We’d love to spread the word in your area as soon as possible, so the sooner people with collections reach out to us the better.”

It’s unclear if American Pickers will actually make a stop in Covington County, but if the collection is right, they’ll be here.

American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on History.

The show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most-skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques.

They plan to film episodes of the series throughout the region this winter.

The duo is looking to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.

Raynor said they are looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasures.

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 a description of the collection with photos to or call 855-OLD-RUST.
