“American Pickers” to Film in Oregon – looking to come to our community: Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and Antique Archeology are coming to Oregon!  The team will film episodes of their hit series “American Pickers” in Oregon in September.  “American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on the History channel.  This hit show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars, and bicycles, to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.  Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle America, restore forgotten relics to their former glory, and learn a thing or two about American history along the way.  They are looking for leads and would love to explore what you may have.  They are on the hunt for interesting characters with interesting and unique items.  They are looking for vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing, pre-50’s western gear, etc.   If you have a large collection or want to refer someone to Mike and Frank, email your name, phone number, address, and description of the collection and photos to: americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-old-rust.  The show is produced by Cineflix Productions for History and airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.  Contact the Heppner Chamber if you think you have something they would be interested in.
