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.

Saturday June 30 Auction Primitives in North Alabama

This Saturday in Hanceville Alabama will be the place to go  for some fine Primitives.  How about seven pieces of Southern stoneware pottery?   I think back row number three has great color.

An early cherry corner cupboard. If I bought this, I don't think I could ever sell it. 

A Sheraton Work Table pre-1850. 

A walnut pewter cupboard. Pretty spectacular.

A walnut stepback cupboard that appears to have original  finish. The top should lift off the bottom for easier moving, but each part will still be heavy.

I've never been to the Hanceville auction, don't know anyone there, so I want to see if the prices are cheap or sky high.  If the Atlanta or Nashville dealers show up,  forget it.  They never run out of money. 


  1. That would be a great auction to attend. I love good primaties in my kitchen. Thanks for sharring. Richard from My Old Historic House.

  2. Marshel great pieces I hope you can get some of theses items. I love the Sheraton Work Table pre-1850. It would make a great night stand in my home.

  3. I would love to know what some of these items sold for. Especially the corner cupboard. WOW!!!!!!
