HAMMONTON—The American Pickers are thrilled to announce their return to New Jersey, including the vibrant town of Hammonton! Set to film episodes of The History Channel’s popular television series in April 2024, “American Pickers” delves into the captivating world of antique “picking.” This documentary series follows adept pickers on their quest for America’s most valuable antiques, seeking historically significant or rare items and exploring the unique stories behind them.

The cast has local ties to the area. “Jersey Jon” Jon Szaley, born, raised and based in New Jersey, is an expert in early American motorcycles, and restoring and conserving furniture and antiques are his passions. By 17, he had bought an old bank building that he gradually converted into a combined workshop and home headquarters.

As the Pickers traverse the back roads from coast to coast, their mission is to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. They eagerly anticipate meeting fascinating characters with extraordinary tales and collecting unique items along the way. The show aims to breathe new life into historically significant objects while uncovering hidden gems that provide insights into America’s rich past.

Having encountered a myriad of rusty gold over the years, the Pickers are on the lookout for the extraordinary and the unprecedented. They are ready to unearth remarkable items and hear captivating stories about them. The “American Pickers” TV show is actively seeking leads and invites people to share their hidden treasures. If you or someone you know possesses a unique item and is ready to sell, the Pickers want to hear from you!

Please keep in mind that the Pickers do not explore stores, flea markets, malls, auction businesses, museums or anything open to the public. If anyone has a compelling item and story, reach out by sending your name, phone number, location and a description of the collection with photos to: or call (646) 493-2184.
