You could look for hours and still not see everything.

Bennington Potters has a very wide variety of household items. My husband and I went in on a "date night" and really enjoyed the many beautiful things and the wonderful scents.

First stop should be the walk thru tour of the pottery process but you must stop and talk to one of the craftsmen and let them tell you first hand what this place is all about! Very educational and interesting! Once you know how Bennington pottery is made, go into the beautiful store and BUY,BUY,BUY!!!

They had very pretty pottery. I bought a style that if felt was unique to Bennington Potters and I love having it on display in my kitchen. The staff was pleasant. They also had a little additional store that sold other items besides pottery. I felt the pottery was reasonably priced.

I was glad we stopped in the Pottery first to see a little about how the pieces are made. It gave me a greater appreciation of what we saw on display. I could have shopped all day in the store. I could have spent a LOT of money! The work is beautiful with a wide variety of glazes and shapes.... More

My parents were going to the Bennington Potters since the 1960s to get the famous trigger mugs, typically seconds. they still sell them. The building still as many characteristics of the grain elevator that it was back many years ago. Great place to visit.
