This used to be a great little trip to take on a day in Williamsburg but alas it is no more. The skeleton of what was remains as a strip mall. Nothing exciting like when they had glass blowing and people actually making salt glaze pottery. The main building that was full of all kinds of crafting and gift goods... More

Once upon a time - and I'm talking about 40 years ago, the Williamsburg Pottery Factory was in metal buildings that were connected by dirt and crushed gravel walkways, with each building containing a different type of item. You never knew what they were going to have each time you visited. Between the prices, which we believed at the time... More

The outside of the pottery is beautiful but the inside is lacking with their products that they sell.

This is the first time I've been there since they revamped it. The last time I was there was 30 years ago and it was more of a pottery place than a strip mall like it is now. I was very disappointed that out of all the stores there, maybe 1% of the pottery was made local. 99% was made... More

Loved the new look but was shocked when we saw it. Haven't been to Virginia in about five years and this change supposedly took place within three years ago. The buildings are nice and air conditioned. However, the feel is no longer the same. I actually preferred it the way it was before. Now the prices have gone up and... More

We stop at Williamsburg Pottery every time we are in town. They have a great selection of salt glazed pottery and I add a piece to my collection at each visit. Great wine section as well, lots of choices at good prices. Fun to walk around and see what else can be found... Cookware, food, flags, prints, and so much... More

Unique, quaint and a hidden gem were how I once described the pottery but now it's just cookie cutter, bland and an obvious fake for something that once was. If I wanted Michael's or Hobby Lobby I would go there instead. I recall enjoying hours of 'getting lost' in the old Pottery's vast complex of warehouses and shops. Today I... More

I love the second building and Karissa is my favorite employee! The customer service was very friendly in that building compared to the unfriendly staff in the other 2. I couldn't find help or a smile like I did in the framing building!
