Known for co-hosting the hit reality television show, American Pickers
, Frank Fritz is an expert at assessing antiques and collectibles. These days, he spends all his time on the road, digging for treasure in barns, garages and junkyards across America. Get to know the antiquing king before you see him at the KC Remodel + Garden Show.
Q: What is the best part of your job?
: "Getting to know people all over the country who share a passion for vintage American items and the culture and history they represent."
Q: What was your most memorable project you’ve undertaken for yourself or work?
: "Restoring my vintage motorcycle collection, which includes some highly prized Harleys and Indians."
Q: What are the first steps someone should take if they think they’ve found something valuable at a garage sale or junkyard?
: "Onsite don’t get too excited. If the price does not seem fair, be prepared to walk away. After purchase, do your homework and get it appraised before you do anything impulsive."
Q: What should people expect from you in 2017?
: "I am working on a pilot for a new show that is motorcycle centric…it will be a travel show but have tons of great takeaways as well."
Not only will Frank be sharing his expertise and talking about some of his greatest finds on the Fresh Ideas Stage, but also attendees will have the opportunity to bring items for him to appraise!
See him on stage at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday, February 11.
