Exotic Pumpkin Patch

As some of you had seen in the French Flea during our September sale, we had some pretty awesome pumpkins scattered throughout the store. We had many compliments and inquiries as to where we got them. Now it's time to share this information with all of you! John Druley of Andover, MN has been growing pumpkins since 1984 and started up a yearly local pumpkin patch called 'Exotic Pumpkins.' John was kind enough to open his pumpkin patch to the French Flea, to find pumpkins and gourds to decorate the store with. We had a wonderful time taking in the beautiful sites and perusing the patch that John has growing right on the land in his very own backyard. Exotic Pumpkins is a family run business, as is noticed by the etched pumpkins that John and his daughter etch every summer as the pumpkins are growing. Be sure to go check out the many different varieties of pumpkins and gourds that Exotic Pumpkins has to offer, and be sure to bring your family for a fun day finding pumpkins for decorating and for carving!
