Boone's Antiques' Profile

About

Oh. Hi. We're the Boone family and we're really happy you're here.

For the last 60 years and up until not long ago, our dad and uncle had mostly been doing business the old fashioned way from the store our granddad built from the ground up on Highway 301 in Wilson. If you're not from the east coast (or the 1960's for that matter), Hwy 301 used to be the Vegas strip of the east coast before I-95 was built. Well, the antique business has changed dramatically over the years with the advent of the internet, rising gas prices, and the ever changing popularity of different genres. Even with the World's Best BBQ (yeah, we said it!!) less than a mile down the road, people just aren't making road trip expeditions to hunt for their favorite item like they have in years past.

Enter the younger Boones (that's us). We'd been watching this from the sidelines for years, brainstorming all sorts of ideas on how to make customers aware of the vast quantity of merchandise at Boone's available 24 hours a day at their fingertips. We knew we couldn't drive traffic to our website without thousands of marketing dollars, and we definitely didn't have the time to put all of our inventory online ourselves. Then some things changed.

Liza found a couple weeks to head back to the old hometown and photograph some of our inventory to get the ball rolling and then I, Zack, decided it was time to commit some energy after my day job to helping her. With a little nudge from Etsy, here we are!

We really hope you like what you see, and we'd love to hear from you. Thanks for taking a moment to stop by!

Cheers,
Zack and Liza
