The reality series concentrates on Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz travelling all over the US searching for antique and collectible items both for their clients and for themselves. One more cast member is Danielle Colby. He deals with managing Wolfe’s business in the office known as Antique Archaeology. The office was opened in LeClaire, Iowa. Later the business expanded to one more office in Nashville, Tennessee. Fritz also runs his own website. The men experience the so-called free-style traveling – they simply make stops at places looking attractive to them. There are places that they’ve visited several times already.
The introduction to every new episode is presented by Wolfe and Fritz themselves. However, it was getting shorter and shorter with every new season released. In this introduction, they say that they’re pickers searching for rusty gold on the roads of the USA. They’re looking for attractive ancient things buried in the darkest corners of people’s garages and old barns. Wolfe and Fritz manage to see potential in things that most people consider junk. Each item they get has a history and that’s what makes it attractive. Some pieces can retell you the full history of America.
Mike and Frank explore barns, sheds, homes and outbuildings of Americans from all over the country seeking antiques and various collectible items. Wolfe has been interested in antique motorcycles since childhood and Fritz has always been fond of antique toys. They even buy old advertisements and signs together with retro film posters and gasoline pumps.
