The History Channel's smash hit American Pickers has been to the South Carolina coast in the past. They're looking to score in our state again and have put out an open call to residents with  cool old stuff. 

For those that don't know, the show follows two of the most skilled pickers in the business ‘Mike Wolfe’ and ‘Frank Fritz’ as they embark on an epic road trip across the US. The show offers a fascinating insight into what it’s like to be the men on the ground who are on the frontlines of the antique industry. The show follows the pickers in their truck as they go on a mission in search of America’s most fascinating and valuable antiques - treasures that have been long forgotten in junkyards and barns across the country.
