Is there a gem in your junk?

Some Minnesotans could soon find out, as the History Channel's "American Pickers" will pay a visit to the state to film this coming August.

The show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they go antique "picking," looking through people's collections to find any hidden treasures they can buy to either resell, recycle or keep for their own collections.

Producers are getting the word out to any private collectors who want to get a visit from the pair, with the International Falls Journal reporting they have been in contact with the city's Chamber of Commerce.

You can find a list of the kind of "junk" they are looking for – which includes old scooters, toys, pinball machines, sports and TV memorabilia and folk art – right here.

They are not however looking for farming tools, glassware, tractors, stoves and appliances.

Anyone with large, private antique collections should send their name, number, location and description of the collection with photos to, or call 1-855-653-7878.
