Old Kodak photo booth reclaimed

| September 24, 2018

COSHOCTON – What was once a Kodak photoshop 24-hour service booth at the Downtowner Plaza has found a new home on County Road 271 in Coshocton. The booth, which was located in the plaza 25 to 30 years ago, has been transformed into a bright orange pumpkin and now belongs to Stacia Hatfield.

Hatfield is a member of the River View FFA and is using the booth to sell pumpkins for her FFA project.

“My grandpa said, you know what would be a great idea? Make it into a pumpkin to draw attention,” said Hatfield.

The former photo booth is made of fiberglass and is made up of four pieces bolted together. It is approximately 12 feet wide, 12 feet high, and 18 feet long. When William Albert Excavating took it down from the plaza, a worker decided to take it home, reassemble it, and use it as a goat shed. Hatfield’s grandfather, Bob Johnson, knew the worker and bought it from him. It stood on his property for many years as a sanding shed for his woodshop. He gave it to his granddaughter for her FFA project.

With the help of her grandfather, her mom and dad, and her sister and brother-in-law, the photo booth was transformed overnight from a sanding shed to a pumpkin. There are 150 pumpkins for sale and range from minis to 80 lbs. Hatfield also has a 101 lbs. pumpkin that she will be entering into the fair this year.

Stacia’s Pumpkin Patch is located at 16733 CR 271 in Coshocton and is open Monday through Friday from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
