Family History

The opening of Dunn’s Attic is a homecoming of sorts for owner/operator Wes Dunn. Wes’s family, the Dunns, have been writing Florida history and leaving their mark on it since 1856 when they left Virginia and moved south. Ever since, the family tradition and passion has been to provide unique and excellent services to the local area.

The Dunn family history includes successful orange groves, lumber yards, marine supplies, paint, hardware, household items, collectibles, and toys! In various pursuits, the Dunn family has had a hand in improving and enriching the lives of local residents for well over a century. IMG_7198

From the Capitol Building in Tallahassee where State Senator Edgar M. Dunn, Jr. worked to protect the rights of Florida residents, to the late night workroom at Dunn Toys & Hobbies where Wes and company crafted those finishing touches that make a child’s dream come true, the Dunn family always lived up to its reputation of providing excellence to those they serve.

When Wes joined the family business in 1987, he was the first of the 5th generation to do so. With the opening of Dunn’s Attic, his son Nick, as Operations Manager, will introduce the 6th generation of Dunns who are committed to serving the community.

Wes began his career as Manager of the Toy Department at Dunn Bros. Hardware in downtown Daytona Beach. Two years later, in 1989, Wes expanded the toy and hobby business and established Dunn Toys & Hobbies.

Under Wes’s management, Dunn Toys & Hobbies received thirteen Playthings Magazine international awards for store design and merchandising. These prestigious awards placed Dunn Toys & Hobbies in the ranks of industry leaders FAO Schwartz and Imaginarium. At that time, in fact, Dunn Toys & Hobbies was the only store to have won a Playthings Magazine competition more than four times!

During his tenure at Dunn Toys & Hobbies, Wes entertained the likes of Madame Alexander and Former President Bill Clinton. Wes’s high level of commitment and dedication to excellence continues to attract celebrities to his projects. Thus Dunn’s Attic is proud to be partnered with Tim Luke, an HGTV alum and Antiques Road Show appraiser. Dunns Wes Dunn

The Dunn family also established a rich history in the mountains of North Carolina. To this day the family maintains properties and a presence on Balsam Mountain. It was during family trips to North Carolina as a youngster that Wes discovered his love for antiques, auctions, and anything re-salable.

Continuing in the tradition of offering a best-in-show experience, Wes is proud to introduce Dunn’s Attic. This unique selling/buying experience will provide the community with a much-needed venue and with entertainment as well! Come be a part of the rich and charming history and the fresh and exciting future.
