History show looks to pick stuff along Route 6

By BoroOnline.com staff

The American Pickers are heading this way, looking to peruse your antique stuff on Aug. 12. But it's not just any old antique the History channel reality show will be looking for.

Classic motorcycle memorabilia and motor scooters are in, but farming items and tractors won't make the cut. Folk art is good, but not country primitives. Don't bother with crocks and stoves, but pre-1960s vintage diner collectibles are on the plate.

For a list of what they will be looking for, and not, click on this list posted on the General McLane website. The list also notes how to contact the Pickers by email and phone with information on what you have to offer and where you are.

Also, for more information on the planned trip contact August P. Schiava of the Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership at aschiava@eriepa.com.
