The Museum


Come see curiosities from around the world and beyond! (but mostly from Alabama!)
Started in the 1970’s as Butch’s taxidermy shop and artifact room, the Museum of Wonder is now filled with art, artifacts and antiques, and some very strange items. Open by appointment only, email please.

Mr. John Henry


Mr. John Henry Toney grew up in Sandfort, Alabama and farmed all his life. He used to drive a tractor around Seale and plow up folk’s garden patches for them. One day he plowed up a turnip with a human face on it… His art career was born. He’s 83 years old and draws everyday.

I can weld steel, mix concrete, paint, throw clay, bend wire , sew cloth, and hammer a nail. Mix all these together and you got Intertwangleism.

I only build weird stuff.
Need a rare decorating item? Send me a list and I’ll find it or build it for you.

Possum Trot


The auction is EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT 7PM EST.  If you come down here often enough, you’ll probably find what you’re looking for. The Possum Trot is not just an auction, it’s a place where the people come to relax and tell stories.

‘Bring a Truckload to sell’ or ‘Buy a truckload to take home’.
