Got junk? ‘Amer­i­can Pick­ers’ is com­ing to Cal­i­for­nia

The Tribune (SLO) - - The Cambrian - BY SARAH LINN [email protected]­bune­

Here’s a chance to clear out your garage, barn or back­yard — and pos­si­bly make some cash too.

“Amer­i­can Pick­ers” is com­ing to Cal­i­for­nia in March 2019 in search of cool col­lectibles and col­or­ful char­ac­ters, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

Pro­fes­sional pick­ers Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are look­ing for large, pri­vate col­lec­tions of an­tiques that they “can spend the bet­ter part of the day look­ing through,” the re­lease said. That means no stores, malls, flea mar­kets or mu­se­ums.

“They are ready to find ex­tra­or­di­nary items and hear fas­ci­nat­ing tales about them,” the re­lease said.

En­ter­ing its 20th sea­son on the His­tory chan­nel, “Amer­i­can Pick­ers” finds Wolfe, Fritz and their team scour­ing the United States in search of “rusty gold” — unique and un­usual items that some might dis­miss as junk. In ad­di­tion to buy­ing items for clients or re­sale, they of­ten pur­chase things for their per­sonal col­lec­tions.

“Mike and Frank are gen­er­ally in­ter­ested in any an­tiques/old items — likely older than 50 years old that have a lo­cal con­nec­tion and a good story be­hind them,” Emily Chafetz, “Amer­i­can Pick­ers” cast­ing as­so­ciate pro­ducer, wrote in an email.
