  • The cast of American Pickers coming to a garage near you. Maybe.
How's that KonMari purge going? While you're folding your clothes into little squares, you may be wondering what to do with the road signs, vintage car parts and random advertising ephemera you've got stacked to the rafters in your garage.

If you've got the right kind of stash, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz from the History Channel show American Pickers might swing by for a look and a haggle in March. The show came to Blue Lake in 2016 but surely Humboldt has a few more collectors/aficionados/straight-up hoarders worth checking out?

Staff from the show put out the call for potential antique picks via email, saying, "we are looking for different, unusual and unique items too — something we’ve never seen before and with an interesting story!" That said, the crew doesn't visit  "stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public."

If you think you have the literal and figurative right stuff, you can call (855) OLD-RUST (653-7878) or email
