No need to go here. It's a lot of small stores with junk. I didn't see much pottery. I'm not sure what it used to be, but reading other reviews, it apparently was much better than it is now. We spent a total of about 15 minutes here.

Reading the reviews of those who recall the Pottery for what it once was requires a simple acknowledgement: they're right. The grand ol' mess of buildings, with all the treasures and surprises within, were dispensed with in favor of a gaudily designed row of nondescript galleries displaying the same-old, some-old. The wonder is how it remains in business, because the... More

Haven't been here in probably 20 years. What a disappointment! It was not the fun pottery we remembered. Told the kids of all the hand made stuff and different things to see. Wrong. It is an overpriced outlet mall. Food section has things in a grocery store just more expensive. Pottery section has things you can buy at walmart and... More

My daughter came up from Florida and we planned to spend a full day at the pottery just like old times. We used to visit frequently and made many, many memorable purchases there. Imagine our shock when we pulled up to a strip mall with no quirky atmosphere, no hidden treasures and high prices. Things that were on the shelves... More

Don't go to the Pottery expecting the warehouses. The stores are clean and although not stocked to capacity, there are deals to be had. I found 4 ft. diameter vine weathes for my front porch for $5 each. I also found clay strawberry pots for half the price I have seen them anyplace else. So, it may not be the... More

I have been going here for over 30 years. This was the first time in about 10 years. I enjoyed the hot days of walking from old building to the next to look for treasures. Like anywhere else there are sky high prices and some great prices, it just depends when you go and what you are looking for. I... More

Ok, so this place is not the same. You can't buy tons of arts, crafts , flower arrangement stuff dirt cheap anymore. I'm a little sad. But, oh my, am I happy with what you can buy! I'm so tempted not to write this report, keep it my little secret, however, if this place goes broke I would cry. The... More

When we pulled into the parking lot I actually thought we were on the wrong place because while it had been a very long time - it is not what I remembered. And the lot was empty! We were with friends who said the exact same thing. I understand the concept of wanting to "get with the times" but the... More

I don't really know what to say about the Pottery. Before the remodel the Pottery was a fun adventure where you would sift through all kinds of things and almost always come up with so little treasure but now it is all over priced items that are available at many other retailers for a better price and the empty parking...
