Spent the day today working in both my retail shops, putting in fresh stuff, switching around the displays, marking certain things down, and cleaning. Even found some stuff I may be interested in buying if I can get a better deal. All around great day!
My Mother went along for the journey today and I always enjoy when she can. It gives me someone to help out and talk to. Ended up having lunch at Arby’s. In my “previous life” (one of them) I used to be a General Manager of an Arby’s, so you’d think I wouldn’t want to eat it at all, but that’s not the case. While I worked there I was sick of the food, now I enjoy it on occasion. Love me a regular roast beef sandwich!
Sales in the booths are great, and even had a GREAT day of online sales….. VERY thankful, ready to relax a bit tonight, then CRUSH a few days of SOLID HUSTLE ahead!!!!!! LIFE IS GOOD! Stay focused, stay busy, stay HUMBLE!
Hello everyone! Had a blast today working in my shop at Big Valley Antiques in Milroy, PA. Changed around the displays, brought in a few boxes of fresh finds, and even found some stuff to buy for resale in some other’s booths! Always great when that happens!
I now need to catch up on some paperwork, then it’s time to attempt to put together our new bed frame. Last week Amazon sent the frame without rails, and just yesterday we received new packages after returning the old one. Let’s hope it’s complete this time!!!!
I’ll check in again soon, enjoy the rest of your day!!!!!!

Hello everyone, hope you are having a great weekend!
Today I am in the office listing some new items in eBay, and getting ready for this week where I’ll be doing much more the same there, as well as Etsy & Amazon. Speaking of Amazon, last night I put up 50 items (the biggest effort I’ve put into learning the ways of Amazon so far) and made my first sale! Excited to expand the page, especially now that it’s ALMOST officially Spring!
I am just about to package up a few items for shipment tomorrow, before relaxing a bit this afternoon (if I get around to doing that!). It’s a beautiful day outside here in Central PA, and was much the same yesterday. Me and my girlfriend Brandi decided to go get a car wash and detail yesterday, and you can see her giving the big “thumbs up” in the picture included in this post. Spring is almost here, Yard Sales & Flea Markets are about to pick up, days are now “longer” now that Daylight Savings Time has passed, what more could you ask for?!?
It’s going to be a busy month as I continue working on closing down my one Antique Mall booth, and relaunching/expanding my other two. Tons of other projects going on as well…. LIFE IS GREAT! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll check back tomorrow with something new RIGHT HERE on BrentOtt.com!
In this latest episode I talk about Outbox, YouTube’s new OneChannel layouts, introduce the “Thumb of the Day,” and much more! Lots of info PACKED into this half hour!

While I was at Cracker Barrel yesterday I saw this awesome pack of “vintage sodas” for sale… Pretty awesome!
I’ve sold several signs and pieces of advertising from EACH of these brands, so cool!!!!
How’s it going everyone?!? Hope everything is going great. I spent the day today with my Mother & Sister, and one of the things we did was have lunch at our local Cracker Barrel. I’ve been to a few different locations, but this one is absolutely PACKED with a variety of antiques including advertising, which if you know me, you know I LOVE!
I took some photographs to share my experience and this location in general, so I hope you enjoy!!!
Have you ever ate at a Cracker Barrel? How was your experience? Is your location decorated as awesome as this one??!?

I found this on Dannie Diesel’s (aka Danielle from American Pickers) Facebook page… Pretty crazy, don’t you think? Very cool nonetheless!
I found this idea while surfing through my Facebook News Feed…. Pretty awesome, right?!?
