Very good stock and inventory of pottery. The staff were nice and it was fun to browse. They offered to give us a tour of the factory but we were running low on time. Will definitely be back!

Since we were in Bennington, why not stop in and check out Bennington Potters. The wife loved the store, then we checked out the shop and watched some of the potters at work on the machines. Very cool to see how it all comes together. The free self guided tour is worth the time! Check it out.

Stopped here when in town for the big summer craft festival, the works are very nice but it is not a place to find bargains. Nice place to stop if you like pottery.

During this self-guided tour, visitors have an opportunity to visit with the potters and ask questions about their work. The gift shop is absolutely fabulous, offering a wide variety of items made by the potters as well as numerous other items.
