This December, History Channel television series American Pickers will be filming in Georgia once again, and show producers are looking for Georgians with large collections of antiques to include in the show.
According to a press release, the documentary series explores the world of “antique picking” and follows skilled pickers in the business as they hunt for valuable antiques. The show documents the pickers on their search to find large and unique antique collections and to learn the interesting stories behind them.
“As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics,” the release said. “Along the way, they want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. They hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.”
In the past, Dawson County’s own Dell Conner has been featured on American Pickers with his impressive array of antiques and unique items he’s collected over the years. With the show returning to Georgia, producers hope to find leads of other people like Conner who have interesting items and stories behind them to feature.
“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 we would love to hear from you,” the release said. “Please note, the Pickers do not pick stores, flea markets, malls, auction businesses, museums or anything else open to the public.”
To submit a lead to the show, send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646-493-2184.
