‘Pickers’ in town PDF Print E-mail

The word spread rather quickly on Friday, July 20… the American Pickers were in town and that generated a lot of speculation, not to mention several phone calls. Getting the lowdown on the popular crew from the History Channel’s “American Pickers” series, Wally Rankin (center), owner of the Pasty Corner, was contacted Thursday, July 19, by Pickers Frank Fritz (left) and Mike Wolfe if they could film at his business. So with the camera crew on hand, the Pickers filmed inside and outside the Pasty Corner and went away with a couple of those tasty pasties for the trip to the next stop. The pasties, said Rankin, were a new experience for the two stars, who remain as secretive about their opinion of pasties as they were about their appearance in Iron County. The two had been in Iron Mountain and came to Iron River to “pick” through some items from a couple of Iron River families. Rankin was told the show should air on the History Channel in about three months. (Rankin photo)

Enjoy your show. I was living near Pickens Co., near Pickensville, SC a couple of years ago and wrote to the producers suggesting you go to SC, and I knew they'd like the name of the town. About 6 months later there they were in Pickens Co! Now the show was just north of where I live in the summers in the Wisconsin northwoods. I'll have to keep a watch for the episode from the Michigan UP. One suggestion...pick more items women enjoy. The show got old for me when it's so much "guy stuff".

I like that program and my sister and brother in law live in Iron River. The area is peaceful and inviting. Hope I can see the show. Thank you,
