Meet the Pickers

Marion Ogden and wife, Linda, along with Dennis Maggard and wife, Janis, have been doing business together as Bearly Makin' It Antiques since 1994. What started out as a small collection of items to sell in their garage and backyard sheds, slowly grew into renting out storage sheds, building a 90x70 storage shed, to buying and remodeling the old Beaston's Market in downtown Marion, KS. The business inventory only continued to grow! In need of more storage, the old Alfalfa Mill, located at 1953 Sunflower in Marion, was purchased. The mill serves not only as a storage unit, but a massive off-site location to shop and browse!  These two guys will buy most anything, but specialize in furniture, structural and yard art and of course, rust!  They have a habit of buying big, but big is what they like to sell! Anyone looking for unique or hard-to-find items can certainly start their search here! Bearly Makin' It Antiques serves a variety of customers, from vendors and shop owners buying in bulk to personal collectors.  And even the increasingly popular Whatever Craft Weekend, hosted by blogger Meg Duerksen, ventures out here to peruse the shop and mill.  Another personal highlight for Bearly Makin' It was being featured on American Pickers! Be sure to visit this one-of-a-kind collection and experience it for yourself today!

Just a little lunch with the American Pickers!
