Got Junk? History Channel’s ‘American Pickers’ is Heading to Michigan
The gang from American Pickers is on a mission to find those hidden gems amongst piles of junk in Michigan once again.
The stars of the popular History Channel show are set to return this summer to film new episodes for the show that makes you second guess that "trash" you have stored in your basements and garages.
If you're not familiar, American Pickers follows its stars, Mike Wolfe, Danielle Colby, and Robbie Wolfe, as they venture out on the back roads from coast to coast for some ultimate antiquing. Their journey has them on the hunt for America’s most valuable antiques by uncovering unique collections and learning the interesting stories behind them. They search junkyards, basements, garages, and barns looking for "buried treasure" and hoping to restore those forgotten relics to their former glory.
The show, which is one of the History Channel's longest-running shows now entering its 24th season, has been filmed in Michigan once before. The episode "The Michigan Madman" was filmed in Canton and was part of the 20th season airing in May of 2019. Last year the team filmed with musician Jack White that focused on a historic mobile recording studio. That episode aired just a few months ago and can be viewed here.
According to reports, the show will be back in Michigan in July and producers are looking for leads on anyone with unique items or possible hidden treasures just waiting to be discovered. If you think you have something that needs to be "discovered" you can contact the show by sending your name, phone number, location, and description of the collection with photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also give them a call at (646) 493-2184 and contact them via Facebook or @GotAPic.
