If you've got a boatload of antiques and other cool items of potential value hanging around your house or stuffed in a garage, you might want to get in touch with the stars of "American Pickers" because they're coming to Minnesota this fall. 

In a press release, the popular History Channel show says it plans to film episodes of "American Pickers" throughout the state in October. 

The hosts of the show, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, travel around the country in search of valuable antiques, and they're "always excited to find sizable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them," the press release says. 

"The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way."

All in all, they're hoping a bunch of Minnesotans reach out to give them leads of where they can explore to find "hidden treasure." 

If you've got the antiques or know someone who does, send the show your name, phone number, location and photos with descriptions of what you have. You can send all of that information to americanpickers@cinfeflix.com or call 855-OLD-RUST.
