A LITTLE HISTORY
Our dad, Edgar Boone, started Boone’s Antiques, Inc. in Wilson, North Carolina back in the early 1950s. His profession was a tobacco auctioneer, and at that time buying and selling antiques was just a small side business. But all that changed in 1961 when he travelled to England for the first time. While there, he discovered a whole new world in antiquing, and immediately saw the potential of buying and selling in large quantities for distribution in the US . As soon as he got back, he went to work expanding the business.
We quickly opened branch stores in Kentucky, Virginia, and Georgia while adding more floor space to our main store. In 1970, we expanded our Wilson location again with two new warehouses and a cabinet shop. As we moved into the 21st century, we slowly began consolidating all the branch stores into our original location . When you visit our 4-acre store in Wilson, you’ll find tens of thousands of antique furniture pieces and accessories- more than you could ever imagine.
The legacy that Edgar Boone created lives on with his sons, Tom and Doug, now running Boone’s with the same hard work, integrity, and knowledge of the business that has helped us grow into one of the largest antique wholesaler/retailers in the country.
