“American Pickers” is coming to Florida

The hit television show “American Pickers” is returning to Florida in December and is looking for places to pick through rare and collectible items.

Episodes of The History Channel series will be filmed throughout the month of December in various locations throughout the state. The pickers are looking for unique and sizable collections they can spend the better part of the day going through and learning of the stories behind them.

The pickers’ mission is to find valuable antiques that can be recycled and to rescue long-forgotten relics and to discover more about America’s past. Meeting different characters that have impressive collections is always exciting for the pickers.



According to a press release from producers, they hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life. The pickers are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.

If you or someone you know is interested in being on the show, send the following information: name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to [email protected] or call 646-493-2184.

Please note, the pickers do not pick stores, flea markets, malls, auction businesses, museums or anything open to the public.
