Original Story from 3/2/15

The treasure hunters will be focusing their search on the Finger Lakes region around Canandaigua. The Rochester Business Journal reports,

Wolfe and Fritz are in search of “unique characters” with local antiques, according to the Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce.

They look for items such as vintage bicycles, toys, unusual radios, movie memorabilia, advertising, military items, folk art, vintage musical equipment, vintage automotive items, early firefighting equipment, vintage clothing and pre-1950s western gear.

Think you've got a collection worthy of picking? The production company behind the show, Cineflix, is casting now. They are looking for collectors of what they call 'rusty gold.'
