The television show, American Pickers, is searching for places in Illinois to record.

When Frank and Mike, the stars of American Pickers, came to Rockford to pick with Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick, I thought that was great TV.

Here's a clip of that episode if you haven't seen it.

There's a chance they could come back to Rockford, or at least Illinois.

According to,

"The television documentary series “American Pickers” is looking for places to film in Illinois from May 27 to June 9."

If you have any suggestions, here's the contact information:

"If you or someone you know has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send us your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to: or call 855-OLD-RUST. facebook: @GotAPick"

Please let me know if you end up on the show.
