Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

Another Plantation Desk

I met a nice couple who are fellow lovers of primitives. I bought their plantation desk which was part of a general clean out. 

Someone in Arkansas had already bought their Larkin china cabinet or I might have gotten that also.

There are two table top victrolas at their house for $200 each and another with 100 records for $900.

 I have a Brunswick that my parents bought for me in the early 1970s for $50 so I really don't need another one.

Summer of 2011 update: My cousins in Richmond love this desk even more so it is moving to Richmond soon. 

I know where three more are, so if my need to hoard another one arises, I can drive to Tennessee and buy one.
