The exterior has been totally redone from our last visit about 5 years ago. But in the remodeling the pottery place has lost some appeal. The parking lot was empty when we arrived and we thought it was closed. That implied a lot. We kind of enjoyed wandering among the warehouses and rows of cast cement objects. They literally had...

This was my first visit to Williamsburg and I have always wanted to go to Williamsburg Pottery since I do collect some pieces from that line. I read the bad reviews about how it has changed but wanted to see for myself. I went last week and when I pulled up to this huge parking lot and buildings it was... More

Your review was a bit back and forth, was it your first visit or have you visited before? The store with the wine in it actually has the salt glaze pottery legacy store in the back end in which you would have been looking for. The other stores only have but a few stands. The statue of the late founder... More

I just love the new pottery! I used to come to the original pottery. Everything from flags, pottery, candles, dishware, wines, grocery items, bed linens...This is a must stop destination if you are visiting Williamsburg!

Some of the old pottery kistch should have been retained. The uniqueness is gone. Won't be back. This was our 20th year coming to Williamsburg on vacation

We do have a lot of pottery. It is located in our building "A" in the legacy store. I am sorry you are not pleased because you are comparing to what we used to be, but we are still a vast business with a great selection. We do beat out our competition greatly as I have traveled to 15 stores... More

I visited once before, many years ago, and remember that it had interesting and varied stock. In its new "version," it is a disappointment. Shelves half full of poor quality stock.

It was a bit like a yuppie ghost town. Being from Delaware and seeing things I can buy at home with no sales tax...? Why bother. I saw very little pottery and a whole lot of things I can get at Walmart or Target. Evidently I want the only one that felt that way because there were maybe 25 cars... More

Today, I visited the "new and improved" Williamsburg Pottery... *sigh* For all those that are planning a shopping trip or visiting The Williamsburg Pottery of the past -- The Williamsburg Pottery DOES NOT exist anymore. Its been torn down and replaced with a very sad and sorry excuse of what it used to be. Everything is overpriced. The shelves are... More

Stopped in to look at the new setup. Very clean, friendly staff, walked all the 3 buildings and purchased some garden things, great wine choice's and bedding. They have something for everyone! It's not at all what the old pottery was and I think this is much better. Not as overwhelming as the old pottery.

In the "olden days" it was fun to meander thru all the old buildings to see what you could find. This new "mall" approach is probably more convenient, but totally lacks charm. And most of the stuff is repetitive throughout the building. There are cool pottery items and candles to be found, but nothing feels terribly original.

This was a return trip to the Williamsburg Pottery after visting many years ago. The new buildings are well laid out but the energy, excitement and values/deals are a thing of the past.
