“American Pickers” is reportedly interested in coming to Wellsville again this fall after contacting Daily Reporter Regional Editor John Anderson Thursday.

Mary Weaver of “American Pickers: on History, said, “The show will film in New York this September and the hosts are looking for people in your area with unique antique collections and interesting stories behind them.“

She said the show was trying to get the word out as soon as possible, so the sooner people with large collections reach out to it, the better.

“Please make sure people who have one of a kind items to sell reach out to us on our phone number 1-855-OLD-RUST (653-7878), or our email, which is AmericanPickers@cineflix.com,” she said. “Mike (Wolfe) and Frank (Fritz) only pick private collections so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.”

Village of Wellsville Mayor Randy Shayler said he hadn’t heard Thursday’s news about “American Pickers” reportedly wanting to come back to Wellsville.

“It’s exciting news and I think it’s great. I think it’s an opportunity for us to showcase Wellsville on national TV again. Obviously, we’ll do anything we can to cooperate with them and help them to do this.”

Shayler, who said he likes “American Pickers” and watches it regularly, said he didn’t see Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz and their crew when they came to Wellsville in May 2015.

“I saw there was some activity on Main Street. I watched the episode (in the fall). Wellsville looked pretty good.”

He remembers the episode and seeing Wolfe and Fritz at the Mather Homestead that had belonged to the late Barbara Williams, where they bought some items, and looked at a 1937 Cord automobile, but didn’t buy it. Barbara Cobb, Williams’ niece, inherited Mather Homestead and hosted the show’s crew during the visit.

“I thought she did a great job. All in all, I think Wellsville was very well-represented,” Shayler said.

Shayler said he would love to contact representatives of the show.

“I’d like to contact them to welcome them and encourage them to come to Wellsville,” he said Thursday. “I’d like to take them to lunch if they come to Wellsville, when they come to Wellsville.

“I’d like to get their impressions of Wellsville how they compare Wellsville to other villages or communities they’ve been too. I would think we would compare very well.”
