A Picker’s Paradise Plus Tag Sale!!!

A good old fashioned tag sale under glass at the Otten Bros. greenhouse is in the making. Autumn is a great time to clear the decks for the upcoming winter season and that is just what we intend to do! Select vintage merchandise has been pulled, sorted, tagged, and set out for your treasure hunting pleasure. This is not a “pretty” sale, but rather a greenhouse junk shopping experience with “pretty” prices and “pretty” plants to boot. In other words, it’s a picker’s paradise with benefits. Now that’s what we call “pretty” darn cool!

All vintage merchandise was handpicked by yours truly. That makes these wares already JUNKMARKET approved. Now, you don’t get that every day…and never at these prices! Whoo hoo! What will you find? Plenty of stuff in the rough, turnkey items for your home and garden, items appearing in book and national magazine articles, and much, much more. As many JUNKMARKET Style fans know, I have a passion for galvanized junk so you can expect to find a little slice of heaven when it comes to great galvanized goodies….or as I call it, the “g” trifecta. Take a peek at the pics, just to whet your whistle.

In addition to all of this fabulous junk you can find top notch plant material for your garden and outdoor decor. These garden greats have also been handpicked for you, only this time by the knowledgeable and friendly staff at Otten Bros. Garden Center and Landscaping. Woo hoo number two!! When do you ever get a two whoo hoo event? Almost never, and only from JMS at Otten Bros. You’ll find pumpkins, gourds galore, broom corn bundles, and corn stalks along with beautiful blooming Mums, Asters, Kale, Cabbage, and Pansies. Wow!

For directions to Otten Bros. you can checkout their website at www.ottenbros.com.
