Here come American Pickers!

BLYTHEWOOD/FAIRFIELD CO. – Residents in Blythewood and Fairfield County who have collections they think might be treasures will have the opportunity to find out in February when American Pickers again surfs through South Carolina looking for valuable antiques. The pickers say they will be looking for sizeable, unique collections and interesting stories behind them.

On past trips the pickers visited Bob Ford of Winnsboro (formerly of Blythewood) and spent some time sifting through and bargaining for some of his unique collectibles.

Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team plan to film episodes with South Carolina collectors for their television series American Pickers. They’ll be hitting the back roads looking to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, they hope to meet characters like Ford with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historical significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about South Carolina’s past along the way.

Anyone with large, private collections or an accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to [email protected] or call 855-OLD-RUST. Find them on Facebook @GotAPick.
