About American Pickers
Featuring a little-known side of the antiques business,
follows the adventures of Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, two professional 'pickers' who travel the back roads of the nation in search of Americana gold.
Part sleuths, part antiques experts, and part cultural historians, Mike and Frank have a knack for finding hidden treasures in the most unusual places. And, from a 1930s Ferris wheel, to a life-sized, hand-carved statue of Elvis, they scour the backwoods and dirt tracks of the US to unearth collectible relics with historical and pop culture value.
It's touch and go as to whether they make money on the deal - sometimes they win, sometimes they lose. The uncertainty is all part of the fun watching American Pickers .
