One of a few places our church group visited in Seagrove. Good selection of pottery and other gifts. Interesting museum located on the grounds. Worth a visit as several potters works are represented and many others are located nearby.

Got to go to the Pottery Capital of N.C...literally 100's of potters..each different and unique. Wonderful artisans...small shops, big shops, but all willing to tell you about their work. Will definitely be going back!
