While I agree with some of what other writers have said (missing the real pottery that had been featured), there is still a LOT of great things about the new Williamsburg Pottery. Gone are dusty driveways and parking lots, gone are the hot warehouses that...More

Don’t bother. Just a long strip mall with a pretty facade now. An almost empty parking lot. I miss being able to wander the old huge buildings to finds tons of bargains and unique finds.

Overall, a very disappointing visit. Visited in summertime--August 2018....high tourist season. I remember the days, back in the 1980s, when you could go and see pottery, glassware and various things actually made by hand. There was lots of activity, lots of employees and customers.

So why is that the Salmon Falls Stoneware in Dover, NH is still going strong with their pottery business but Williamsburg Pottery is now outsourced to China? Corporate greed, that's why! They thought they could increase sales back to their heyday in the 80's. Shame...More

The "new" Williamsburg Pottery was very disappointing. Very spread out, alot of stuff made in China, Didn't see much Williamsburg pottery and what we did see was expensive. Pushing the 80th pottery pitchers, expensive.

I suggest Blenco glass in Milton WV. They have a web page. We buy special unique gifts there every year, and it is an 8 hour drive from our home.

You definitely can order wine ahead of your visit. We ordered wine for my daughter's wedding and were able to pick it up in less than a week. Since we live in the area, we ordered in person, but you can certainly call them.
