The store is just great and the pottery is wonderful - though there's much more in the store than just pottery! The children will love the life sized statues of the cow and moose that have their bodies outside the shop and their heads inside!

One hint that shoppers should always know: there's a "seconds" corner where you can find slightly "characterized" pieces at a great price! The Pottery celebrates Bennington's Midnight Madness in the greatest of style usually with music, food and TONS & TONS of great deal! This year, 7/17/2014 - Come early and bring a wagon!

I enjoyed watching the pottery being made. I also liked the excellent variety of decorative items, furniture, pottery, candles, etc. in the store.

A trip to the Bennington Potters is always a great time.
For those like myself, it is an oasis for gift shopping. These are gifts your friends and family will cherish and use for years. Lots of great pieces and ideas to expand on. The sales staff are super friendly and during the holidays do a great gift wrap.
The factory visit behind the shop is well worth it and the staff their are eager to show you how the pottery is made.

There is a large variety of plates, cups, bowl, and other things. We now use some of these pieces all the time. Tour the pottery factory then pick up something made right there.

This is a great self guided tour, but you really get to see the process of how the pottery comes to life. The workers are so nice and willing to answer questions you may have. The glazes are beautiful!
