There's a whole lot of crap on television, but the popular History Channel documentary American Pickers about two antique pickers who travel across the country finding forgotten relics isn't one of those shows.

And it's coming to Texas.

A press release from Cineflix Productions says the show's hosts, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, are looking for leads. They'll be filming episodes of the series in the Lone Star State, and, hopefully, San Antonio.

They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what they look for: vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, pre-50’s western gear.

However, Wolfe and Fritz only pick private collections, not stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.



If you have a large collection or want to refer someone who does, email your name, number, address, description of the collection and photos to americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-OLD-RUST.
