We’d love to spread the word in your area as soon as possible, so the sooner people with collections reach out to us the better. Please make sure people who are interested reach out to us on our phone 1-855-OLD-RUST (653-7878), or our email, which is AmericanPickers@cineflix.com.


AMERICAN PICKERS To Film In Massachusetts


Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to Massachusetts! They plan to film episodes of the hit series AMERICAN PICKERS throughout the region this fall.

AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgotten relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items.  The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them. AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. 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:

americanpickers@cineflix.com or call 855-old-rust.













AMERICAN PICKERS is produced by Cineflix Productions for History. New episodes air Wednesdays at 9pm EST on History.



Harwich Redefined


For Immediate Release

Harwich Chamber of Commerce Announces Completion of Comprehensive Rebranding of the Town of Harwich New brand the result of a yearlong process meant to capture the essence of the community and to encourage tourism, business development and civic pride

HARWICH – The Harwich Chamber of Commerce and its rebranding committee unveiled a new official marketing logo and brand for the town of Harwich to attendees of the Harwich Hometown Parade yesterday. The new brand is meant to capture the warm, welcoming nature of the town of Harwich and its residents and, by communicating these qualities, to make the town a more inviting place to live, visit and do business.

Unveiled aboard a float carrying a “Harwich scene” of a family around a bonfire, the public debut was the culmination of an 18 month process undertaken by the chamber and the committee. The new brand will be used to market the town worldwide, and will also become the primary brand of the Chamber of Commerce and select town departments.

We went into this process hoping to capture the essence of what makes Harwich different and special to create a new, unified message that the town and the Chamber can use to not only market the town to visitors, but to give voice to the reason that people love living and doing business here. mWhat we discovered was that Harwich is a town that welcomes everyone with open arms, and once you’re here we treat you like family, whether you’re just visiting or moving here permanently.

The Harwich rebranding committee, led by representatives from the Chamber, town government, local businesses and concerned residents, worked through a branding process with Northstar Destination Solutions of Knoxville, Tennessee, to research and develop the rebranding framework. Grouper Design of Yarmouthport was asked to develop and execute a new brand based on the groundwork laid by Northstar. The research process determined several key differentiating factors about the town that provided the building blocks for Grouper’s work developing the final brand.

Ultimately, the process combined the research and municipal development expertise of Northstar with the local knowledge and design skills of Grouper Design.

The rollout of the new brand will continue through out the fall and winter and through 2016. Elements of the new brand will be incorporated into the 2016 edition of the Harwich Magazine.
