American Pickers to Film in Minnesota

Have You Heard? American Pickers to Film in Minnesota in June 2023!

The American Pickers are excited to return to Minnesota! They plan to film episodes of The History Channel hit television series throughout our area in June 2023.

American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique “picking” on The History Channel. The hit show follows skilled pickers in the business as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find historically significant or rare items, in addition to unforgettable characters and their collections!

\As they hit the backroads from coast to coast, the Pickers are on a mission to recycle and reuse forgotten relics. Along the way, they want to meet characters with amazing stories and fun items. They hope to give historically significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way. The Pickers 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.

 

The American Pickers TV Show are looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. If you or someone that you know has a unique item, story to tell, and is ready to sell they would love to hear from you!

Please note, The Pickers DO NOT pick stores, flea markets, malls, auction businesses, museums, or anything open to the public

About VEMA

To lift up the voices of all people in our communities that experience racism, discrimination, injustice and/or predjudice. To enact change, educate, and provide cultural experiences. To provide resources to community members who are affected by issues of racism, discrimination, and injustice.

VEMA was founded in the spring of 2020 following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Seraphia Gravelle (Aguallo), Elizabeth Robinson (Allen), and Nathaniel Coward began the work of educating the community and providing a voice for people of color throughout the region. Historically there has been a lack of representation as well as complaints and concerns falling on the deaf ears of the leaders of the regional community. VEMA stands united to work against racism and injustice. Through educating not only the members of VEMA but also the community surrounding them, they intend on chipping away at the systemic and blatant racism that exists throughout their community. In addition to education, a priority of VEMA is to ensure accurate and adequate representation as the community as a whole works to disrupt racism and discrimination.
