American Pickers to film in Seneca County

The Seneca County Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and Antique Archeology to Finger Lakes Central for the filming of their hit television series AMERICAN PICKERS. Filming is expected to begin in April, 2015. The Chamber and the television show’s producers are actively looking for locations in the area. “We are thrilled that our region will receive national exposure through the popular television show American Pickers,” said Seneca County Chamber President Jeff Shipley. “Our area is an ideal location for this show because of our historical connections. We look forward to helping local residents showcase their treasured artifacts to the rest of the world.” AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. This hit show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia. Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way. The Seneca County Chamber and AMERICAN PICKERS are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items. Some of what the show is looking for include: 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. Anyone interested in being considered for the show is asked to email: your name, number, address and description of the collection and photos to: info@senecachamber.org. AMERICAN PICKERS is produced by Cineflix Productions for History. New episodes air Wednesdays at 9 pm ET on History.
