American Pickers coming to Mississippi - - Jackson, MS

American Pickers coming to Mississippi

 According to a press release from Visit Mississippi, the hit documentary series American Pickers is coming to Mississippi and Louisiana in January.  

The show is looking for applicants throughout both states, specifically interesting characters with lots of interesting items to sell.

American Pickers is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique "picking" on the History Channel. 

Hitting the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank earn a living by scouring the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns. 

The best part of their journey is meeting the unique characters along the way, each with a story to tell about the history of their collection and their own lives. 

"We are thrilled to welcome American Pickers to Mississippi," said Malcolm White, Director of Visit Mississippi. 

"Given our state's rich history and heritage, Mike and Frank are sure to uncover a number of hidden treasures here."

To be considered, applicants MUST email the show at or leave a message at 1-855-OLD-RUST. 

Hopefuls must include their name, contact number, and a description of their items. 

Please note that only private collections are eligible -- no retail stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public. 

For a list of items that the show is looking for, see the press room on the Visit Mississippi website at
