‘American Pickers’ stars to appear at State Fair

That thing you’ve got stored in the attic because you think it might be worth something?

Bring it to the Midway Music Series State at the Great New York State Fair Friday, Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m. and cast members from the History Channel’s “American Pickers” will tell you whether they think it’s “treasure or trash,”

Frank Fritz, one of two antiques hunters who travel the country looking for items to restore, and office manager, Danielle Colby Cushman, will talk about their experiences, show bloopers from the program, take questions from the audience and, after the stage portion of the show, will sign autographs and say hello to fans.

The heart of the appearance, however, will be the opportunity to have an item checked by Fritz for its potential value.

If you are among those “Picked,” he will not tell you what your item is worth or attempt to buy it from you. Instead, he will deliver a simple verdict – it’s either “treasure or trash.”

Items brought to the Fairgrounds for possible consideration cannot be larger than two-foot-by-two-foot. Weapons of any kind will not be allowed on the grounds. Not everyone who brings an item to the show will be chosen for the on-stage review.

The New York State Fair runs from Aug. 22 through Sept. 2.  The Fair’s theme is “Sharing the Bounty and Pride of New York.”
