TV show ‘American Pickers’ in search of antique collections in the North | arts and entertainment


“American Pickers” returns to New York and seeks northern residents with large private collections or accumulations of antiques.

The TV show stars Mike Wolfe, Danielle Colby and Robbie Wolfe as they travel the country in search of relics which they sell for a profit.

“As they travel back roads from coast to coast, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and salvage forgotten relics. Along the way, they want to encounter characters with remarkable and exceptional items,” according to a Cineflix press release calling for submissions, “They hope to breathe new life into historically significant items while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way. The Pickers have seen a lot of rusted gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they have never seen before.They are ready to find extraordinary objects and hear fascinating stories about them.

Anyone with a collection they would like to be considered for the show can send their name, phone number, location and description of the collection to [email protected] or call 1-646-493-2184.

The show has made two stops in the north of the country in recent years.

In 2019 they visited the Rensselaer Falls collection of the late Kyle D. “Fireball” Hartman, who died a week before the show was called to say they were interested in his collection. His son, David, ended up on the show and selling items from his father’s huge collection.

“There are over a thousand doors in inventory and they are just doors. This does not include windows or anything else. It’s pretty,” David Hartman said in 2019.

There were 96 cars in the collection when Kyle Hartman died.

“He was a very avid car collector. His specialty was definitely vintage Fords,” David Hartmann said. “It’s been weeded since,” David Hartman said at the time.

In 2021, Jericho Road, Watertown, the home of David A. and Frances A. Pietroski, was featured on the show.

Mr. Pietroski said the pickers bought about 15 items from him, but only a few made it to the final cut of the episode.
