'American Pickers' is coming to Florida, and wants to pick through your stuff

Know someone with a cool collection of antiques, collectibles or dust-covered old “junk” they’ve been holding onto for years in the hopes of someday cashing in?

The time may be now.

American Pickers, the A&E reality series following collectors Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they scour the country in search of “rusty gold” is coming to Florida.

The production will hit the road to begin filming a 19th season this winter, and they’re already scouting out possible stops in the Sunshine State.

Via a news release from the production:

“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. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send us your name,phone number,location and description of the collection with photos to: [email protected] or call 855-OLD-RUST.”

The 18th season of American Pickers is set to debut on Jan. 22.
