Wayne's World of Watt-Nots

Wayne's World of Watt-Nots Personal collection of local history, antiques & collectibles

Wayne’s World has a very definitive meaning to owner, Wayne’s Watts because it is just that. Wayne has worked hard searching for local treasure in order to preserve a past that is very important to him and he is downright passionate about it. Even as a young boy, history interested Wayne, so he began collecting artifacts at a very early age. The local history of his roots, Clay County is what interested him the most. With a law enforcement career that spanned over 30 years, starting at the young age of 18 as an Officer, Watts became the youngest Police Chief to serve in Lineville, Alabama. Later on down the road, he and son, Klay would open a very successful construction business called simply Watts Construction. Wayne also juggles the role of County Commissioner, a position that is perfect for him because he deeply cares about Clay County and the citizens. Watts gained an extreme amount of knowledge of the local history through old timers who would come and sit with him sometimes. Watts would listen intently to their stories of people, places, etc. and he would store them into his memory. As these old timers would pass on, these stories would become a part of him and he wanted these memories to live on forever. So, every chance he got, he would purchase old store signs and items of local businesses past, old school annuals, and anything else he could find of interest. For every item he attained, he had a personal story to go along with it. When his collection began to grow, he decided it was time to share these personal memories with the public, so a building was erected at his “office” location on East College Street in Lineville and the transformation began… It didn’t take long to generate public interest in this location as the colorful signs and such began to fill the front yard of Watt’s building. Every day when they would drive by, there would be even more items on display. Many times, curiosity would get the best of them as they would pull in if they saw Wayne’s vehicle there and he would take them on a personal tour. Even being the busy man that he is, He has never begrudged anyone a visit to this day. He truly enjoys meeting people and sharing his stories with them as they browse his numerous historical collections. From Indian artifacts, civil war memorabilia, to a HUGE collection of local historical items, this location has become a great attraction within Clay County. People come from near and far to see Wayne’s collection of memories, which grows bigger by the day. Recently, he was visited by the American Pickers, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, who filmed a show featuring Wayne’s World which has pushed this unique location into the limelight even more. Wayne welcomes anyone who wishes to visit his establishment. But he asks that you please call ahead to set up an appointment for a personal tour. There is no cost for admission at this time, but he has big plans for the future.

Happy Father's Day to every father, stepfather, or father figure who stepped up when a child needed a good role model in life. With your guidance along the way to shape and mold our children's minds, they can become good, productive members of society and one day, pass that knowledge on to their children. It's called the circle of life!

In the early 19th century, clawfoot bathtubs were a mark of social standing and luxury, placed in private baths in wealthy homes where servants could fill them with water and have enough space around the sides to help a person bathe.

Their designs were intricate, with long, sloping backs and increasingly ornate feet to match the design trends of the time.

By the time World War I started, the distinguishing feet on these tubs represented much more than decorating sensibilities. Made of metal — a hot commodity in wartime — the feet were often confiscated for the war effort, used to make weapons and war supplies.

There were only a few manufacturers of the clawfoot tub early on. This one is a bit shorter than others, which makes it a little more of a rarity item. This particular model was designed by Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company, dated Oct. 26, 1920.
I've got big plans for this one ;)

Ain't nothin' I can't stand worse than a thief...
A few weeks ago, someone busted the door in here and stole some guns of mine. Now, I'm hearing that one of them may have been involved in the robbery that took place at Jordan's in Ashland the other night. Well, I ain't having it over here..period. So I had this sign made, complete with bullets made in it, to state my case. This right here serves as a warning, so there will be NO warning shots fired.

Steal from me again and you might be pulling hot lead out of your backside. Or the coroner can do it, doesn't really matter to me. I may not have a badge anymore, but what I do have is several hundred acres and a backhoe. 25 years I served in law enforcement and I've never seen things worse than they are now. Well, I'm fed up.

So, go on and try it again and you might get yourself a big surprise that you won't ever live to tell about. We treat the 2nd Amendment like it's a commandment around here. Not to mention, we got loads of surveillance cameras to identify your sorry a**, just in case, by some crazy reason, you're lucky enough to get away. Consider this a public service announcement. Its time we all take a stand.

Folks, break-ins are getting' real bad in and around Clay County, and remember..it's your right to protect yourself and your property. Don't be a victim! Also, please be sure to check on your older and elderly neighbors cuz these too-lazy-to-work, won't-get-a- job, cowardly thieves are targeting them as well.

Be sure to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity in your neighborhood and report it. Take care out there, ya'll! Be safe!

One day, not too long ago, I just mentioned in a casual conversation that I was gonna get me a big rooster to put up here at Wayne's world at some point. I didn't think a thing about it after that because, to be honest, I get a little sidetracked with work, projects and looking at other antiques. But these two didn't forget.

So, here they come today, my grandson, Dylan Morris and his beautiful better half, Haley, bringing this big ole thing up in the back of a pickup truck. You could've knocked me over with a feather, I was so pleasantly surprised. Ain't nobody ever given me anything like this. I couldn't be happier either.

Thanks Dylan and Haley for such a thoughtful gift! It's now one of my prized possessions and I'll display it proudly!

We love our visitors! They come from near and far to check out the goodies here at Wayne's World. This lovely couple, Gordon & Jacqueline Murray, originate from Scotland, yet live in Australia now. The Murrays stayed a few days in Clay County on their American Holiday, so they could spend some time with friends here, and that's how they found out about us. They even found a couple of treasures, so they could take a little Clay County back with them. It was a pleasure meeting them. Good thing about Wayne's is you always leave here as friends. We hope to see our friends from Down Under again next year on their way through!
