When you're too busy to drive out to meet the potters in their own environment, South Street is the place to go. Folks are knowledgeable about local potters and you can see the different styles in one place. Wonderful.

South Street Gallery is a two-storied gallery/shop located near the historic street of the same name, near the centre of town. They show pottery by local artists so this is the place to go if you want a large selection to choose from.
