How’s it going everyone, I hope great! I’ve been busy today working on our Etsy store, adding new stuff, etc… We have lots of ideas/plans for this store as Spring continues and Summer approaches, fun stuff! Etsy along with eBay and our now TWO instead of three co-op booths will be keeping us busy all year, and we plan on setting up as a vendor at Flea Markets as well. Going to be a busy, busy year and I love it!
We’re not too far now from April 1st next Monday (not to mention Easter THIS SUNDAY!) and the relaunch of both our shops. “OUP Thrift & Vintage @ Roller Mills Antiques” and “Brent’s Advertising & Collectibles @ Big Valley Antiques.” Very fun, busy times! Can’t wait to share some of the other things I’ve been working on with you guys as well, working on getting a lot of content to my liking then I’ll be sharing. Thanks for hanging along for the ride!
Be sure to follow along tomorrow on Twitter @oup for #FreshPickedThursdays
I was out and about today with my girlfriend and came across a new spot that I never before realized WAS one, and saw the shirt above which I thought was pretty funny. They had some good vintage concert shirts, sporting stuff, and other things as well. I’ll be back soon for sure!
Also enjoyed this hat…..
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!
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!
Next Monday night BOTH Glendon Cameron & The Redneck Picker will be joining us LIVE on the 25th Episode Celebration of “Trash Talk & Treasures” with Brent & Wally. You are not going to want to miss this special night!
Check out some of the past episodes featuring these great guests/guys! ….
SEE YOU NEXT MONDAY NIGHT!
How’s it going guys?!
I hope you are all well. I am just getting a lot of work in the office done today. Earlier I put up some eBay listings, tagged a lot of post cards (newer & older), and tagged some other odds and ends including the Yuengling poster I got last week. Now it’s about time to tag some more smalls, and take some more pictures for more online listings! Always busy in this business.
Tomorrow and the next few days I’ll be in all the booths. Will still have a lot more to do in the office as well. Trying to get some stuff out the door and get ready for the next auction!
I think I am going to take some time tonight to look into some new places I’d like to travel to. Not even so far, but little road trips here and there with my girlfriend. I love just getting on the road, and it’s been a while since I’ve taken a “random” trip. As this Summer looms ahead I’ll be looking into my regular July trip as well. Can’t wait.
Thanks for reading guys, and back to the tagging :)

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!
Something new! I hope you guys all enjoy!

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!
Throughout my life I’ve always faced challenges head on. I’ve always faced adversities head on. Not once have I taken the easy way out, or backed down from anything. As a matter of fact, I thrive off the stress and uncertainty that a challenge of any sort brings.
Right now I am finding myself laughing on both the inside and out for a variety of reasons, about a variety of different things. None of these things even deserve further comment. As for all these “things,” I would like to simply thank everyone who has been in touch with me. Everyone who has showed support through Email, YouTube messages, Facebook messages, everywhere. Bottom line is that there’s nothing going on “around here” other than business as usual!
I’m going to keep being myself, keep getting money, and keep growing. It’s funny, I don’t think you ever quite KNOW where you are going without uncertainty, or know that you can’t fail, until you hit a point of rock bottom within your life. For me I hit that point back in 2004 with a marijuana case, which I don’t speak on too often. I stand firmly behind the legalization/decriminalization of marijuana, and always will. Perhaps it’s something I will get into further in a coming post. It’s because of that point of hitting bottom that I am the man who I am today, why I have the goals I do, why I’ve arrived at the point I am at today, and why I truly KNOW for a fact that I have more hustle in my left nut than most of these other guys have in their entire bodies.
Someone pointed out to me recently that I don’t have to say anything, I literally have “binders” of credibility, which I thought was a very valuable point. I’m not hiding behind anything, as is evident with my Internet presence from the last few years.
With these next few coming days comes a lot for me. I’ll be heading out to another auction (or two!), getting in to work on the co-op booths, doing some eBay & Etsy listing, and filming/work for my upcoming “Project X” show/podcast. It looks as though I’ll actually be picking up a new camera this weekend as well, which is super exciting! Always fun to get to play around with new technology. One thing that is on the back of my head right now is this year’s OUP Photography Tour, which I am always excited about. As of right now I don’t have all the details, but it’s always a blast. Last year the OUP Photography Tour took me to St. Louis, Nashville, Cincinnati, all over the place, and I’m sure this year will be much the same.
In addition to all these and other things, “Trash Talk & Treasures” is in the process of getting better and better. I’ll be working out the details with some good people, but rest assured that the often imitated, NEVER duplicated fun that is TTT won’t be going anywhere, ANYTIME soon. As I said we’ll just be getting better! I’m not going to give anything away just yet but you can count on learning a lot more, and getting a lot more out of TTT in the future. I’m seeing a lot of bullshit out there, which is expected, but not something I’m proud to say I stand behind.
I’m really starting to enjoy doing these posts here on BrentOtt.com more and more, and I’m very appreciative that you guys have enjoyed reading them. I appreciate all the comments, views, and of course all the viewers who have in turn checked out my other projects/sites/blogs, etc… As always, if there is ANYTHING I can help you with or anything you would like to get ahold of me for simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks guys, and I’ll check back in soon!
