Local Family on “American Pickers”

Dennis and Mary Frances Westfall of Hilton, NY were on a segment of the History Channel show American Pickers. On the show it looks as if the hosts Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz just happened on the Westfall family. In fact, the Westfall family was contacted by the producers of the show in advance. The Westfall home and garage was packed with all kinds of antiques. The TV crew ended up filming for 11 hours last August but the segment was only about 20 minutes long on TV.

Frank and Mike ended up buying a watchmaker’s kit, a steel toy fire truck, a meerschaum pipe shaped like a skull, Beatles bobble heads, a visor for old model VW autos and an advertising piece for a Rolling Stones record; all of which they be reselling at their shops.
