I adore going to Zangers just to revel in the artistry and the designs and shapes of the pottery!!! There are many take-your-breath-away pieces that you should have in your collection. Gloria, the owner is charming and has an unbelievable background in business, in history, in world experiences. It is the BEST place to find that special piece for a special gift. When I retired, I did all my gift shopping with Gloria.
I admit, I am addicted to the colors and the shapes and utility of most of the pieces, and also know if I bring one more piece into my house I will have to add another room.
Awesome what the potters and artists in Poland are able to produce. Bravo!!

Polish Pottery Heaven

Oh my. If you are into Polish Pottery this is the absolute best place to go. They have a huge assortment of patterns and dish styles, each one more beautiful than the one before. Awesome prices as this is a warehouse, not a retail store.

Bring $$$$$$ unless you're a window shopper

I found this on the Connecticut "Things to Do" website. It really isn't a "thing to do", more "things to covet/buy". Consummate shopper that I am, I was interested...I checked their website out, as I am less than enthralled by the standard brown/blue Polish pottery one sees everywhere and wanted to see if that was what it was. No! It was multicoloured and looked quite impressive. Online the prices seemed a bit high for some things but other things (small things - coasters, tea bag holders, napkin rings, sachets) seemed within bounds.

Easy to find, easy parking, right down the pike from Bradley International. The people are knowledgeable and nice. But...

The prices were, ahem, a bit shocking. For folk-type pottery (no 24k paint, much handpainted but much hand-stenciled or so it would appear) I found it exhorbitant. Things I had seen online seemed much more costly except for a few things which were reduced. E.g., there was a muffin pan I loved...$129. Tea bag holder? $24. Four simple coasters would set you back almost $100. I did pick up a few small things but I was really surprised by the prices (and in a warehouse setting). There is a lot of selection, and they keep ongoing inventory (very organized). There were a few bargains here and there. But all in all, unless you are shopping for a nice wedding gift, are a collector and can't find a piece anywhere else (I bought a small Polish rabbit figurine with the simpler multicoloured floral painting on it last year in Southbury at a gift shop - $9.98), or if you have money to burn, intend to buy.

Otherwise just peruse and admire the handiwork. In other words, make it just a "thing to do", museum-style.

Polish pottery - great stop!
Jul 2014 • Friends
I am a collector of polish pottery and found this place while searching the internet. It is definitely a place that you could spend a lot of time if you are at all interested in buying polish pottery. They have a wide variety of items that are placed all over the floor, shelves, tables, where ever there was free space there were items placed. Most items do not have a price on them, but the owner was very helpful and knew many of the prices by heart, if not she would look them up. This is not like going into your department store and shopping, it's a bit messy and disorganized, but if you are OK with not having everything perfectly laid out this is a great stop. I definitely found some bargains and wished I lived closer so I could stop more often.
