'American Pickers' Stars Picking In West Chester

History Channel

Did you see them? "American Pickers" stars Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz were filming somewhere in West Chester Township earlier this week before heading to northern Ohio.

"They shot only one day in West Chester Township. It should air in November or December," says Dan Silberman, senior vice president for publicity at the A&E and History networks.

I contacted Silberman after learning that their Antique Archaeology white Ford van was seen parked in Over-the-Rhine this week.

"Yes, they were in Cincinnati earlier this week, and are in other parts of Ohio through Monday. The Ohio locations I have for the next few days are Lodi, Port Clinton, and Uniontown," Silberman says.

Wolfe and Fritz, who operate Antique Archaeology in LeClaire, Iowa, travel the country looking for collectibles and antiques in homes, barns, sheds, storefronts and warehouses.

"American Pickers" (9 p.m. Wednesdays, History Channel) is in its 15th season.

Did you see Mike or Fritz or their van in town?
