The show “American Pickers” is coming back to Missouri at the end of May and looking for leads.

The popular “History Channel” program is looking for interesting characters with interesting items and lots of them! They like items that are different, unusual, and unique -- something they’ve never seen before -- and with an interesting story. Only private collections will be selected for the show so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public should apply.

People who are interested should call 1-855-OLD-RUST (653-7878) or send an email to Another option is to share information on @GOTAPICK on Facebook. Include name, town and state; phone number, where collection is located and a description of items.
