A spacious store with thousands of pots, planters and containers, 1/2 Price Pots offers gardeners so many options for indoor and outdoor planting needs.
Planters range from the simple to the extravagant, and glazes come in every color under the sun. Most planters are from factories in China, Thailand and Vietnam, where buyers handpick pottery and porcelain pieces for their stores. Whether it’s a small bonsai holder, a retro flower pot or a giant super planter, you’re sure to find what they’re looking for.
As the store’s name states, all pots are half off the sticker price (the full price is listed).
