The good: It's beautiful, stunning even -- large, bright, nicely set-up with lots of room in the aisles. The shelves are about half full, but there is some nice merchandise. I found a couple of bargain plants, which is what I was looking for. The good/bad: It's easy to park and get around, there aren't many customers. The bad: All... More

Since this is our first visit to the pottery, I haven't expectations of what it was in the distant past. In the 1990s I did mail order parts of my Christmas Village from them However, the supply of authentic historic styles of earthenware pottery was more than adequate and the prices more reasonable for the pottery than at other shops...

This facility is about a year old. It has replaced the old Williamsburg Pottery Factory, which was probably the most unique facility of its kind in the US. I can understand why they had to close the old facility. It was falling apart. The new facility is pretty much a collection of about 5 stores that sell some of the... More

I used to love going to the old pottery visiting the candy store, the kitchen store, the old barns, the Christmas shop, exotic shop,Pepperidge Farms, and little mini mall along with the huge warehouse. There was always something to be found. They even had the old ceramic animals from pottery past that I sat upon when I was a kid.... More

So glad we didn't listen to the negative reviews. We shopped at the old pottery and we have no nostalgia for dust and dirt! The new pottery is full of good buys and they still have plenty of pottery along with many other houseware items, wine, craft items etc. The place is spacious and clean, and the staff patiently wrapped...

This is one of our local mysteries. How does this "new" Williamsburg Pottery manage to stay opened? You'll never have a problem parking, because there's almost nobody there. During the Christmas shopping season, the nearby shops were packed -- almost no parking to be found! But, right in the same area, the Williamsburg Pottery remains a ghost town. Gone are... More

Why do you need a whole outlet mall dedicated to pots? Literaly spent an hour of my life looking at pots. Wouldn't recommend.

Gone is the fun treasure hunts of the former Williamsburg pottery - beautiful facade, but difficult to find entrances, and no treasures - higher prices than other stores and very little merchandise. I'm afraid this once fun place will be a ghost town soon!

We had always heard people talk about the Williamsburg Pottery and now understand that the place bearing the name is not what it used to be. In mid-December the parking lot was empty. We encountered another couple looking for an entrance. The entrances are not easy to find and once inside you do a lot of walking to see a... More

One of the best reasons to visit the Williamsburg area is gone, acres of old buildings filled with treasure at great prices, its been replaced with a Target like store with a fancy front. Who was the idiot that came up with this plan? No more wicker, cement fountains, flower arrangement's, row upon row of odd and wonderful finds. DONT... More
