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

Where is the pottery!? Stopped in to see all the good pottery we remembered and found only a few items. The selection was horrible and the store was filled with a lot of items that you can find any where else. We did purchase some, but made sure it was made in 2014. What a huge disappointment.

This place is gigantic and clean compared to the original Pottery. For some reason it was not as crowded but that was fine with me. We found a lot of neat things for our home and also got some good deals on the wine they sold.

The new Pottery is a decent place to visit, but still needs improvement. We go during the Holidays and buy a few things and spend about an hour or two looking around. I agree, the building is nice, but you need to "WoW" us more on the inside and not the outside! There are a few nice areas that we... More

The New Pottery gets my Vote. I Never cared too much for the "Old" Pottery (it was always Filthy, Dusty, & Dirty). However, my family and I really enjoy the "NEW" Pottery. It has all of the same stuff from the "Old" Pottery (but Cleaned and dusted off). They have a Large Selection of "New" merchandise that they carry. They... More

The old pottery was great. You could always find something. The new is empty with no neat stuff. The only good part was the wine shop with a lot of selections but only average prices. No real savings.

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
