Who are we?

Southtowns Auctions is an online only auction that was started in 2022 by Joe Calkins. A frequent purchaser of online auction items himself, he saw an opportunity to do things his way! Joe is a particular sort of fellow and wanted to improve upon what he disliked about the auctions he participated in. His focus for Southtowns Auctions is quality, variety and customer service.
