Mary, Mary Quite Contrary
How does your garden grow?

With great finds from Encore Resales of course!
Encore may not have what it takes to actually make your garden GROW. 
But you will certainly find what it takes to help make it beautiful and to give it your own signature style.

If you are a gardener you know how important it is to have your tools handy.  Try placing this mailbox in your garden and keep your tools where you need them.  At the same time you'll be adding a little whimsy.
If you like whimsy in the garden, try this. Paint this bicycle a bright color or leave it in its awesome patina state. 
(You know patina is a fancy word for rusty, but doesn't it  just sound so much better?)
If you like a little more traditional or structured look we can help with that also.  Adding pottery to your garden, patio or pool side adds an elegant feel.  With some of the large pottery we offer you can create an "old world" look in your garden. via pinterest
Beauty doesn't have to come in a LARGE package. 
An old flour sifter makes a perfect pot for a small container garden.  No need to add drainage holes!

Candlelight and flowers can add a special touch to any occasion.  From a wedding to an evening of sitting in your garden enjoying all your hard work.  Use birdcages and lanterns.  Both allow you to sit your arrangement on a table or hang several together. 
BONUS:  the glass in the lantern will protect the candle flame from the wind!
Need a place to sit and a table to place your ice tea or lemonade down?
(A birdcage or lantern would look nice here too.) 
These beauties are ready to fill that need. 

See something you like? 
Write down the vendor number or print the picture and take it to Encore Resales. 
The staff will be happy to assist you.
(Note:  the pictures without vendor numbers were taken from different web sites in order to give you an idea of how to use what you find.  The sources are below each picture.)

Ginger is the artist that transformed this wing back chair into an usable piece of art.  That's Ginger's passion.

Her Motto:

It's apparent when you step into her booth.

Ginger enjoys turning everyday mundane
items into something unique but still usable.   

Ginger has been painting for 30 years. 
But 10 years ago she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. 
 "Every time I picked up a paintbrush I wondered if it would be my last time to paint." 

(If you owned this luggage you'd have no problem distinguishing it from the others on the luggage carousel.)

Now she wants to be considered a Parkinson's survivor!

After receiving a deep brain stimulator two years ago "she has her paint brush back". 

Do you have something that needs Ginger's touch? 

You can commission her to transform it into your own piece of art.  Just check with the front desk at Encore Resales and they will give you her contact information.
