Pottery for container garden plants

| 1 Comment

After leaving Mom's this afternoon, I stopped by a pottery distributor in San Leandro. They're open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. I talked with the manager who was outside with some workmen. They're having a sale starting Wednesday morning...one cartload up to 3 pots high for $10.00, other pots for $1.00-$2.00, seconds with minor to major flaws for a few dollars, Italian clay pots, and more. Cool!

I've been looking at prices for pottery at Orchard Supply, Home Depot, and Michaels - most are between $10.00 and $25.00, and really large pots are even more. I was thinking I'd have to hit garage sales to try to find cheap pots...and I might for unusual planters (like a red wagon or old tin or other metal containers - I've gotten lots of ideas from the Better Homes and Gardens Container Gardening book I bought this weekend!).

Saw this posting about a pottery distributor in San Leandro and wondered what the name of it was. Is is Norcal Pottery? I was told by a couple of aquaintances about a great pottery place in San Leandro off Marina Blvd. and want to go there to get "a lot" of terracotta pots for my front deck. Thanks for any information you can provide. Sue
