Aussie Pickers search for cool 'stuff' in Border sheds

SHEDS full of “stuff” collected over the years are being sought for a pay television show — Aussie Pickers.

The show’s hosts, Lucas Callaghan and Adam McDonald trawl through the “stuff” in search of hidden treasures in storerooms, garages and yards.

The precious items unearthed range from posters to toys to motorbikes.

The producers are seeking suitable candidates on the Border.

If enough people respond, they plan to film in the district next month or April.

In the previous series of Aussie Pickers, the treasures found have been valued without being auctioned.

This year, it’s planned that the hidden gems uncovered will be put up for sale.

Callaghan, who is a collector turned shop owner, operates a store in the Sydney suburb of Paddington.

He once bought an edition of Cat in the Hat for 50 cents and sold it for $18,000.

McDonald is a former bricklayer who is now an auctioneer for Lawsons auction house in Sydney.

Producers said diversity was the key in the collections being sought with goods as varied as farm machinery, kitchen objects, old furniture, signs and tin cans wanted.

Filming can involve up to eight hours at one location.
