Picking for Treasure in Mid-MO

Posted by Warren Krech on August 2, 2013

Are you a fan of the History Channel show “American Pickers?” That’s the one where the stars – Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe – run around the country searching for collectables. They’re here in Mid-Missouri this week.

“I was four years old, you know,” Mike Wolfe says about how he started finding trash that’s actually treasure. “I started digging in the garbage, and my mom was a single mom, and I saw things in the garbage that we couldn’t afford.”

Wolfe and his crew “picked” the old Missouri State Penitentiary and a west side Jefferson City neighborhood. The crew was also spotted in Boonvillle. As for what they found… Wolfe says you’ll have to tune in next season.
