Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team from “American Pickers” are returning to Washington.

The show is looking for leads and to explore residents’ hidden treasures. Anyone who has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Wolfe, Fritze and their team can spend the better part of the day looking through is asked to send the show their name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 1-855-OLD-RUST (653-7878). They can also be found on Facebook.

According to a press release, the plan is to film episodes of the series throughout Washington — including the Eastside — in April.

“American Pickers” is a documentary series that explores the world of antique “picking” on the History Channel, according to the release. The show follows Wolfe and Fritz as they hunt for the country’s most valuable antiques.

“They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them,” the release states.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Wolfe and Fritz are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the pickers want to meet “characters with remarkable and exceptional items,” according to the release. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about the United States’ past along the way.
