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!

I as I'm sure many others have been going here for many years. It had been a few years since I was there last. I was pleasantly surprised that they have updated their shopping area. But even though they updated it, it seems like they have way less than what they have in years past. Prices on items were still... More

They did have some separately priced birdbaths and I ended up buying one, but after getting it home decided it did not go with my base. I went to return it the next day with the receipt only to find out they only give store credit and no refunds, even after 1 day with a receipt. I can see this... More

Lots of folks are saying that the Williamsburg Pottery ain't what she used to be. That's true. She's better! Three of us went to the wine tasting event yesterday and had a great time! The 40+ wines and ciders were well chosen for their diversity of varietal and region. The Pottery was even running a discount on their already discounted... More

All our friends insisted we had to check this place out. I thought it would be something really great. Every 'department" is in a different building. separate buildings for pots and pans, candles, housewares, etc. Buildings are not adjoined, must go outside to enter each one. Didn't see anything that I couldn't buy at any shopping center.

The pottery is fine, but it is not anything like it used to be. The prices are higher and the buildings are fancier. I miss the old days when the prices were so low and the buildings looked like huts. It was more fun and good for a poor college student,

I lived in Williamsburg in early 80s and the old Pottery was there. Everyone loved shopping for a bargain in the plain buildings stacked with everything. Since moving back last year, the Pottery has been revamped and it is awful. No one is ever there, buildings are new with little in them. No bargains.

My heart was set to spend the day exploring the old buildings and discovering unusual things and BARGAINS. The Pottery is no longer what it used to be, neither am I! The trip was similar to any trip to a TJ Max minus the clothing. This is a series of about 5 stores offering general merchandise at a discount. If... More
