'American Pickers' seeking collectors
The TV series "American Pickers" from the History Channel is coming to Springfield! The hit show plans to film episodes in our region this fall. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are looking for antiques, collectibles and private collections.

  1. There are plenty of empty store fronts and abandoned houses they might find something in them!

  2. Don't they only film in depressed, backwater, forgotten towns featuring eccentric, inbred, psychotic hoarders on disability?

      Hey, we're not all inbred.

  3. Yeah, some of us are only half inbred.

  4. Hey, my psychiatrist says I'm getting better!


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
