Got Valuable Junk?

American Pickers is coming to Virginia

March 2023

The History Channel’s documentary series American Pickers is heading to Virginia this month and it could mean some extra cash for anyone with valuable junk.

The popular television show will be roaming and filming throughout Virginia in March, looking for whatever they can find, and they encourage anyone with collectibles to contact them and let them know.

The pickers say they hope to give historically significant antique objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about Virginia along the way.

“We at American Pickers continue to take the pandemic very seriously and will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming outlined by the state and the CDC,” the show’s producers say in a press release. “Nevertheless, we are excited to continue reaching the many collectors in the Virginia area to discuss their years of picking and we are eager to hear their stories.”

If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that you think the pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, they say they want to hear from you. Please note, the pickers do not pick stores, flea markets, malls, auction businesses, museums, or anything open to the public.

Send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: [email protected] or call (646) 493-2184. You can also go to Facebook: @GotAPick.
