A lot of pottery but now it will close. So what do you do in Sanford? Good question. You can go to the Temple Theater or San Lee Park. Golf is great at Carolina Trace and the Municipal Course. Oh well....

I like art and the colony has some of the best local artist on display. They are affordable and good. Look for gems to take home. They also have pottery and food such as unique honey and condiments.
