From furniture to antique guns, Hal Hunt Auctions is bringing a truckload of treasures to Oxford.

Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 2.42.56 PM“We come once a year to Oxford for our annual antique auction event,” Hunt said. “This is our fifth annual event in the city. We’re at the Oxford Conference Center in the Cedar room and the auction begins at 11:00 a.m. on February 7. The doors will open at 9 a.m. for people to come in and preview the items before the auction begins.”

Hunt said for this year’s event they have pieces from an estate in Jackson, and then items from other estates in Alabama and the surrounding areas.

“We have some amazing pieces at this year’s auction,” he said. “We have about 350 items, including estate jewelry that we guarantee and stand behind 100%; we have around 100 handmade Persian rugs, an antique poster, canopy bed; we have some sterling silver; and we actually have some antique Winchester rifles this go-round; there is garden statuary – cast-iron and bronze both, and just a host of items that I think people will find interesting and worth coming out for.”

Hal Hunt Auctions is based in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and is a third generation, family-based business that is operated today by Hal Hunt and his wife Bridget.
