To accomplish this, they are calling upon the interesting characters with interesting items throughout the state of Ohio to submit a description of their collections for a chance to appear on the show. Co-hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz plan on paying a visit to Ohio in October.

The television show is only seeking submissions of private collections, which means that it will not be accepting submissions from stores, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.

After looking through an antiques collection, show hosts Wolfe and Fritz may decide to sell in their antique shops or, in some cases, put in their personal collections.

To apply for a chance for your antique items to appear on the television show, call 1-855-OLD-RUST (653-7878) or send the show an email at AmericanPickers@cineflix.com. Be sure to include your name, city and state, contact information and a brief description of your collection.
