My husband and I took a trip to Burlington, Vt. to buy some mugs. We were extremely impressed with the entire store and hope to take another trip soon. This was no small adventure it was a 12 hour round trip from Boothbay, Maine to this store.

Bennington Potters make some incredible pottery. I love the different glazes they use, very unique. We spent quite awhile in the pottery store, but also went and took the self guided "tour". It's not much of a tour as you walk around and read the signs about the different steps. We got to talking with one of the workers there, Eva, and she took us on a great little tour and showed us up close and personal the different steps. We even got to see the huge kilns and some pieces there had recently been completed. The pottery can be a little on the pricey side, but it's all hand American made and these workers really care about their work.

The pottery was beautifully displayed in sets and categories. The display tables were well orgainzed, clean and well stocked. Upon checking out they wrapped everything very well when I mentioned I was flying with it. I had a great experiance there.

Although a bit off the main road through Bennington, you will be glad you made the effort. The shop is filled with wonderful pottery and many other decorating treasures.

I was first introduced to Bennington pottery when I was given a piece as a gift. I absolutely love their products and now use it for my everyday dishes, serving bowls, mixing bowls and for most baking. I have visited the yard a few times, usually to check out the seconds. I have never had the opportunity to watch any pieces being made, but it would be fun to see. Worth a visit and the trip is worth it just for the seconds.
