We used to go to this place when it was basically a bunch of old buildings, barns, etc. It was junky but had lots of good buys. Well, they built a beautiful new facility, but we found very few items of interest. In fact, there were a lot of empty shelves. We won't bother going back here again. Save your... More

The new pottery is certainly not like the old. I used to like the old pottery for its shop variety and distinguished items and stores there, that shoppers could find new and different things. I mainly miss the old doll shop there as well as many of the shops in the big building towards the back of it.That is what... More

No harm meant by my last review of WBP. It was a disappointment. Used to be full of Colonial items. No more, not even close. High prices/low inventory/foreign products instead of American made. Forget it. What happened to the colonial things that you go to Williamsburg to see. The pottery itself was apparently not even in operation anymore....I asked about... More

The pottery was always a fun destination. The old buildings, uneven floors, unique items hard to find anywhere else, lots of character. The old place had so much personality and was fun to explore. Now- everything is over-priced and can be found in most dollar/discount stores (from China). Whomever thought this was an improvement to the old pottery missed the... More

What the heck happened here Williamsburg? Gone are the days of the real pottery. Very sad. No wonder the parking lot was empty!

The Williamsburg Pottery is more like Stink Pot now... We arrived at around 8 and ONE car was in the whole parking lot and we walked in and there was only two employees there and one was a Manager Caroline(I'm pretty sure that's how you spell it) and another woman who was running around and I guess was running the...

Haven't been in years. Will never go back. A total waste of gasoline. The good news is I don't think they will be in business much longer.

The old Williamsburg Pottery was a labyrinthine, quirky and very unique shopping destination. The new Pottery is a vanilla, repetitive space with lots of stuff, but with nothing special. Built to look like separate stores, when you enter you find a large massive space with little character and merchandise arranged unattractively. A second unattached building is a twin of the...

when you drive up to the parking lot, it appeared to be several stores, but actually its three large buildings, and they have lots of merchandise, to appeal to several type of people, but it was stacks and stacks of the same items spread all over the sections. A good place to kill a couple of hours, but I have... More
