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!!!!!!
“How’s it going guys?!? I’m finally back with a video on YouTube (http://youtube.com/ounitproductions) to share some of my latest finds for resale from this past week, and OFFICIALLY launch ThriftandVintageAdventures.com!Thank you for checking out the site, and STAY TUNED for much more content! Videos from my travels where I buy and sell, recent sales, behind-the-scenes access to different things I do, and much more. I promise this is going to be a fun ride, thanks for jumping on board!
Make sure you SUBSCRIBE for updates!”
How’s it going guys?!? On the road today picking and wanted to share this cool sign with you. Too bad I would have had to buy the door to get it!
Here it is Wednesday already!!! Just got back from having lunch & shopping a bit with my girlfriend, and also making our daily Post Office trip… TOMORROW don’t forget to follow along @oup on Twitter (http://twitter.com/oup) for this week’s #FreshPickedThursdays!
The plan for tomorrow is to work mainly in my booth down in Lewisburg at Roller Mills Antiques, which beginning in April will be relaunched as “OUP Thrift & Vintage!” HOPEFULLY SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW!
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 idea while surfing through my Facebook News Feed…. Pretty awesome, right?!?
How’s it going everyone?!
I had a great day today with my Mom going into my one booth at Roller Mills Antiques and refreshing the booth. Also shopping around Lewisburg a bit, having dinner, and looking around other thrift/junk shops. Now I’m home, relaxing the rest of the evening after posting this, and getting ready to possibly hit an auction tomorrow! Just looked at the pictures for the one I was most excited for, and nothing really to phone home about. Perhaps I will find a different one. Regardless beforehand I have to go pay my rents at my booths at Plaza Centre & Big Valley. Should be a fun morning!
Also since today is the 31st and end of January, that makes me one month down on my goal of blogging EVERY day here on BrentOtt.com… it’s been fun so far! Lots of ideas yet to make happen!
I figured I’d leave you with some cell phone shots of some recent things I’ve been finding/thought were cool… ENJOY! I’ll check back in tomorrow morning, or after my day of travel. HAPPY FEBRUARY!
Hope you enjoyed!
I also plan on doing another little post soon on a pretty cool business idea/concept I came across that I wanted to share…. Thanks again guys! See you soon!
What’s going on guys?!?
Just wanted to drop in quick and give you an update. I spent the day today working on cleaning and organizing my office, and setting things up to begin filming new segments this week in front of my green screen. I have tons of stuff in my house that I’ve acquired from auctions and everywhere else throughout the last several years. Working on getting that all sorted through, some of it listed online, and some of it tagged for my booths. I’m sure I’ll be storing a lot of it for the future as well.
I will actually be working in one of my booths tomorrow with my girlfriend, and also shooting some footage throughout the day. Looking forward to this Monday night and getting back to some good old “Trash Talk & Treasures” fun. Fun few guests stopping by this week!
I’ll have more on all that soon.
For now I’ll leave you with some behind-the-scenes shots I shot today with my new camera. Now it’s back to toying with my camera/editing software a bit, learning some things, tagging a few more boxes of treasure, and eventually cooking some pork, potatoes, and veggies for dinner!
We will be LIVE TONIGHT in just a few short hours at 7:30 PM EST/6:30 PM CT with “Trash Talk & Treasures with Brent & Wally!”
Both Bonafide Hustler & College Picker will be appearing, and some surprise guests after the show!
AT 7:30 PM EST just go to http://www.youtube.com/ounitproductions

Today was a super busy day traveling a bit, and getting some awesome finds for all the retail outlets. Sometimes I forget how I simply love just being out there and in the thick of it…. 2013 will be fun!
What’s happening everyone? First off hope that you are all doing well. I spent the day working in two of my co-op booths/antique mall booths. I worked on my booth at Big Valley Antiques in Milroy, PA as well as my booth at Plaza Centre Antiques in Bellefonte, PA. Took in some fresh merchandise, switched some things between the booths, and changed things around in general. Always leads to a nice little bump in sales when I spend the day doing just that.
Within the next few days/week I need to get into my final booth, at Roller Mills Antiques in Lewisburg, PA, and do a nice little “fresh up” there as well. I’m also looking to get some new shelves/display cases into all three locations within the coming weeks and months. 2013 is another year of growth!
Tonight I’m going to spend relaxing with the girlfriend, AND getting a little bit of office work accomplished (as I can without getting in trouble!). Tomorrow is going to be a HUGE office day for me. Lots of email to respond to/send, tagging to get done, photographs to take, listing to hopefully accomplish, consultations to participate in, and get ready to be out BUYING strong this weekend!!!!!
If I don’t get into Roller Mills beforehand, next Thursday (my regular co-op day) will be kicking off with a Roller Mills trip to unload fresh finds & refresh the booth! I love what I do!
Oh, and have I mentioned that I’m getting a new camera this weekend? THIS is going to be fun!
I hope you have enjoyed these exclusive “Picking” episodes these past few days! It was fun kicking it “old school” and putting out these videos. Perhaps I’ll put up more from time to time if you would like to see that, just let me know! In the meanwhile stay tuned while I continue to work on “Project X” and other side things in 2013!
