“Unique Shopping Experience”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

What a fun shopping experience - you can read the history of pottery making in the Southern Vermont area, see the process in a self-guided tour and shop in the wonderful store. As you would expect, the pottery is expensive but enough of a price range to be able to find something as a reminder of your visit.

“A chef's dream”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

A great place to visit and learn how the pottery is made. The store to buy the pottery is fun to look around. I was visiting from out of town so when I return home I will be ordering on line some new kitchenware.

“Save time to shop”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Who would expect such an extensive shop in such a small town? When I was told to check out the pottery, I envisioned a small place with a few selection of rustic pots. I was wrong. They have a wide range of pottery for all occasions but also linens, utensils, decorations, glassware..... We spent a couple hours there mixing and matching gifts to be sent to family at home. Be prepared to shop!

“Great place to shop for gifts”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is my favorite local place to shop for gifts, especially wedding and housewarming. The pottery is the best & there are a lot of other great household options.
