Throughout the months of November and December please visit Otten Bros. often! Creativiy and  innovative ideas abound and will continue to evlove each and every day. This is the first of many inspired vignettes, JUNKMARKET Style. Im a big fan of industrial cottage so there will be plenty of galvanized goodies for your shopping enjoyment. You can watch this outdoor living space transform in a blink of an eye from winter to Christmas and back again. Its magical. Its so much hun to have greens and twigs to go with your junk!
Weathered wood plays well with galvanized metal. The two comined create the I want to be there component.
There will be some big junk and some small junk...and everything in between junk. Rest assured that all of junk is the real McCoy. No knock-offs or repros. 
These are not recommended for flotation devices. Are these cool or what? Remember everything is still under construction so these little babies still have some dressing to do for the holidays.
Ooo, la, la! Can you say cheese please? These babies are awesome and we have plenty to go around. No pun intended.
An idea in the works. What to do, what to do, what to do? I think we have this idea in the can. Come see the finished product.
The mother load of vintage movie cases and reels has arrived. Weve cornered th market.
Sheer beauty!
Here is a very simple idea, but theres lots more where this came from. I think the elves are already tinkering in the shop. Can you here them? Also, the oh so talented crew members at Otten Bros. are busily whipping up some of the most beautiful outdoor arrangements Ive ever see. Its great to be surrounded y such creative people!
From chickens to....
hogs. We gottcha covered!

JunkArchitect writes: Sue, could you hold your next shindig in a location that doesn't require me to buy a plane ticket, like somewhere in beautiful New England?
I've also been tempted to move to Minnesota...for the junk. There's seems to be more galvanized metal and peeling paint there than any other state...how come?
Anyway...I'll just sit here staring at my monitor, 1,400 mile away, wishing I was there.
