New antique store to open at former Bradley-Wayside auction

The former Bradley-Wayside Elementary School has been the home of a livestock auction in Jones County for 13 years, but it has been under new leadership since February.

The Jones County Buggytown Auction is owned and managed by Jimmy Burnette and his daughter, Krystal Satterfield. The duo is not new to auctions. Burnette has owned the Buggytown Auction in Barnesville for 17 years. 

He said he knew the previous owners of the Jones County auction and was contacted by them when they decided to sell the business. The business was compatible with the Barnesville auction that is held on Friday night because the Jones County auction takes place Saturdays. 

The auction has a lot of moving parts and is getting ready to add more. Burnette said the facility opens at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday to receive animals to be auctioned that night. Those animals usually include goats, sheep, calves, chickens, ducks and rabbits. 

A miscellaneous auction starts in the back of the building at 5 p.m. Sellers bring items by the truckload, and the owner said they have 30 – 40 minutes to sell their wares. Burnette said everything is sold at that auction, from baby bottles and dishes to tools and antiques.
