John Ott, long-ago purveyor of dreams

John Ott, circa 1970-something

Memorial comes in many forms.

Today I’m remembering the Ott Shop in Yellow Springs, Ohio, where I bought Steiff and Schuco bears as a child, and many other wonderful things. At some point when I was grown up, I found this photo in the box of YS News photos for sale, and bought it, and kept it. The little bears are still in my closet, in boxes.

Time to unpack.

  1. Love that photo, Rebecca!

  2. I can’t take credit for anything other than buying it and saving it. My husband scanned it. I love it, too. It really captures this interesting, curmudgeonly man.
