Good morning! I’m about to head out to buy a pot for some flowers, but I’m not going to spend a lot of money. Here’s where I’m going shopping.
The pot I’m standing next to in that first pic is gorgeous, but I don’t need anything that big.
Big or small, you can find some really beautiful bargains at 2 locations; one in Dallas and one in Ft. Worth.
Most of the pottery in what I call the “scratch and dent” section at the front of Jacksons Home and Garden on Lemmon Ave. in Dallas is half price. There might be a small chip on a piece, or maybe it’s just a pot they’re ready to get rid of. Prices range from as little as $30 to several hundred dollars for the huge pieces, but the buys are great.
And at Archie’s Gardenland in Ft. Worth, the prices get even better! Did you know that Jackson sends ALL it’s rejects to Archie’s? I didn’t. Look at that picture of me in a white dress standing next to a huge green urn. The urn was $80! Some pieces have serious cracks, which can be repaired with LeakSeal by Rust-Oleum or just place a plant stand inside the pot like I do. Then there’s no stress on the crack.
Last time I went to Jackson Pottery I ended up buying two pretty apple green pots from their 30% off section. Each pot was $50 and now they’re home to two little olive trees I’m growing outside my door.
Great story on pottery Jane. I love your work. Keep up the great work you are doing!
Hey Steven, thanks! I really enjoy this and thank you for subscribing!
Ok, so I wasn’t sure if I was going to want to do this realjane thing, or not. But if this is how it will be, I’m in! The pottery, skin care products, etc. are things I’m definitely into. Thanks, Jane. Looking forward to it!
Aww Linda thanks so much! Hope to have something good for you every day!!
I still miss you on the news every evening. I am all about savings. My new neich is Goodwill. Not all of them but in more prominent areas. I am currently in Destin Fl. I have checked out two of them. Planning on visiting some more of their thrift stores here off the Beach Hwy.(98).
The less you pay the more you can buy! Lol
I would love to see your olive trees all potted up! next question…..where did you find the olive trees?
Gosh, Bonnie, I bought those olive trees several years ago when they were tiny, let me think on that one!
Jane, I miss you coming on TV everyday. You are a great beautiful women.
Thank you Diane! And thanks for commenting.
