No trip to Williamsburg VA is complete without a visit to The Williamsburg Pottery. A retail experience extraordinaire, the Pottery has been attracting shoppers since 1938 with bargains galore on pottery, china, glassware and more. The pottery began as one man’s dream, an informal setting where shopping was unceremonious and fun.
Nearly seventy years later, Pottery tours offer visitors the chance to watch master potters at work creating hand-turned ceramic pieces in traditional 18th century style. You can plan to spend the day browsing 200 acres brimming with everything from strawberry pots to eclectic treasures from around the world!
Artisans, craftsmen and custom framers work side by side creating one-of-a-kind items and unique pieces for customers. Lamp makers on site can turn almost any special or personal item into a beautiful lamp, and custom framers can design the perfect complement favorite prints or photos. This huge retail space sells fine furniture, oriental wares and decorative items, gourmet wines and cheeses as well as a greenhouse filled with seasonal plants and all kinds of nursery stock!
Truly a unique shopping experience in a festival-like environment, even pets are allowed to tag along (on a leash or in a cart, please!) at the Williamsburg Pottery.
