find decorative pots to buy? I need to buy a big lot of them to sell back at home for an upscale flea market type store. It's a supplemental income thing for me. I'm off for a full year and I need a hobby.

I was told here in Pennsylvania to rent a truck and go down to NC to buy decorative flower pots and they would sell like crazy here in my area (Altoona, PA). Any suggestions as to where I could find some quality pots would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

pottery is often sold at events and fairs. You see it being sold at flea markets and fair grounds.

It's often sold at local festivals and events throughout nc. It's defintitely one of those things sadly more appreciated by outsiders than natives (like low cigarette prices ). Here are some specifically focused on pottery though:

It would be nice if you could post back here again. I would be interested to know how you do selling those pots. I have no plans to start doing that myself, just curious. I'm from Johnstown originally BTW. Good luck!
