EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (WKBN) – The Youngstown Regional Film Commission is searching for local “pickers” interested in offering their wares for consideration by the popular American Pickers television show.
According to the Morning Journal, the film commission has reached out to the show’s producers, asking them to check out local pickers.
The show’s stars have not yet chosen an area in Ohio and are still looking for a local picker with plenty of items to pick from, according to a film commission spokesman.
Just a small sampling of items American Pickers are interested in picking through and purchasing include motor scooters, motorcycles and bicycles (pre-1960s to turn of the century); old advertising signs; old toys; pinball and slot machines; old movie posters; antique casino/gaming machines; early Boy Scout items; pre-1950s western or equine gear; sports memorabilia; extraordinary mobster memorabilia; vintage police officer collectibles; folk art; early Halloween items; and much more.
They are currently not looking for farm/agriculture items, tools, glassware, appliances, crocks, stoves or country primitives.
The show’s stars only pick private collections so are not interested in stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions or anything open to the public.
Those who think their collections are right for the show, or who know someone who might be, should email as many photos as possible before noon Saturday to firstname.lastname@example.org or should leave a message at 1-855-OLD-RUST, including a name, phone number and description of their items and photographs.
