“"Try Your Hand at the Wheel Day"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We visited the North Georgia Mountains for our first time to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary this year. My husband had always said he thought he would like to make pottery and when we saw this opportunity to try it we jumped on it. We both had SO much fun. Cindy and Cody were warm, friendly and encouraging. We bought a beautiful piece to bring back home to remember this day. Looking forward to visiting again as soon as we can! There are so many beautiful and functional pieces to choose from at Hickory Flat Pottery.

“Love this Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

I was on a girls weekend with a friend of mine who lives in Atlanta and has a lake house in the mountains. We did a full day of shopping and stopping at about 5-6 little shops in the area (well all within 20-30 miles). This place was the best - had a hard time deciding on what I wanted as there was so much to choose from. I ordered several items that were shipped to me with the specific glaze I wanted. My favorite pieces are the soup bowls that I use specifically for French Onion Soup - can't find them in any retail store that you can here! Every time I use them I think of my wonderful trip to the mountains!

“Cute Little Shoppe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

Not too far from Helen, and a beautiful drive to get there!

There was a great selection of pottery to choose from and even a nice gas-log fire going in one of the rooms. It was a cool find, and we purchased a pottery sponge holder.

Thanks, y'all! We'll visit you again when we come back!
