American Pickers seek ‘your hidden treasures’

NEW YORK, N.Y.—The History Channel’s “American Pickers” has announced that Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team are returning to Michigan in September, according to a press release from Cineflix USA.
    American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques.
    “They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them,” the press release stated. “As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.
    Wolfe and Fritz have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.
