The first time my sister came to visit us in the Quad Cities, she wasn't two steps off the plane when she asked me to take her to LeClaire to see the base of the American Pickers.

The History Channel show has certainly put this area 'on the map' in a manner of speaking.

After spending years exploring the country for treasures, pickers Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz are coming home to Iowa. They'll tape shows throughout the state during the month of October.

If you know anyone who has a great stash of antique goodies the pickers can sort through for the next great pick, contact Mike and Frank at, call 1-855-OLD-RUST, or reach out via their Facebook page.
