Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont! They plan to film episodes of the hit series American Pickers throughout the area in September. They understand that with the proliferation of COVID-19, we are all facing very uncertain times. The American Pickers are taking the pandemic very seriously and will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming as outlined by each state. While they plan to be in New England in September, they will continue to re-schedule if conditions change for the worse. Regardless, they are excited to continue to reach the many collectors in the area to discuss their years of picking!
AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them. As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair
hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way. Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.
AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send them your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with
photos to: [email protected] or call 1-855-OLD-RUST.

Our very own News Director Christian Mower took up the task of no shaving for the entire month of November to show his support for the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park. The Organization held their 2nd annual Grow A Beard for KP competition this past month with beard growers competing for four different categories; Glorious Beard, Red Beard, Viking Beard, and Perfect Beard.
Mower decided he would throw away the razor for a month to help spread the word about this great cause in the Mount Washington Valley.
You can see his transformation from baby smooth 12-year-old looking Mower to burly bearded Mower below.
Mower Took a selfie every weekday during the month to document his beard-formation, which you can check out in the Gif. below.
The Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park has all sorts of great and creative fundraisers happening all the time. The next one they have is a Holly Jolly Christmas event on December 9th at the Albany Town Hall. They are also looking for artist in the valley to participate in their Annual Skate-Art Show.
So far the Skate Park has raised almost $25,000 and there’s still a long way to go! For the latest information on all the great fundraisers the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park has going on, visit the Kevin Peare Memorial Skate Park Facebook Page!
