Tucker’s Treasures is truly an out of the way treasure in Southwest Alabama. Located between Nanafalia and Myrtlewood in the southern part of Marengo County, it is hard to find, but worth the effort. It has four warehouses full of antiques, collectibles, rugs and glassware. Every piece of furniture is filled or covered with china, lamps and odds/ends. Many tourists have found their way to Tucker’s Treasures. The Tuckers have shipped furniture to 18 states and as far away as Canada. Visitors have included family members of the Secret Service who guard the President. All who come agree that the antique prices are reasonable. In fact, there are many antique dealers (both in the Black Belt and far beyond) who hope you won’t find this place, because they shop there.

If heading to Ezell’s, be sure to try the fried pickles!
