The showing room was filled with not only many sets of pottery, but household items of various sorts, things to use and decorate kitchens, dining rooms, and living rooms. More spacious than a Pier One Imports and more friendly. Even a resident cat. It looks like there is much more to do in the "factory" in the back where pottery... More

I used to love Bennington Potters in the 70' s 80's and even the 90's. Due to fires and the changing times the personality of the store has greatly changed, the prices have increased significantly. It is still a nice place to stop and wander thru. ..It is just no longer a destination stop..

I happened upon this store while exploring Bennington--which did not take long since the town is really small. There are two sections--one is more furniture and the other is the pottery and kitchen and dining decor. Very impressed with the inventory. The pottery is nice and they have "seconds" at a cheaper price. Can't wait to go back next Christmas... More

I live in Bennington, and the Potters is always on my list of places to stop with house guests. Whenever I need a gift, it is a great source for any household.

We really enjoyed our visit to Bennington Potters, both the company store and the small factory. where the pottery is made. The front buildings are their company store offering Bennington plates, tableware, cups and other pottery items, including some art pottery. They also carry a range of other home goods and tableware of very good quality. They have a small... More

My sister and I were there last Friday. We found lovely items to give as Christmas gifts. Also, they offered to wrap the items and did a beautiful wrapping job. The issue we had were the cats in the cage. I'm glad my husband wasn't with us as he is highly allergic to them. There was no warning they were... More

My wife and I enjoyed the iconic building and beautiful flowers on the outside before taking the short self-tour of the factory where we saw row after row of fired, but unglazed pottery. We then spent about one half an hour touring the retail part of the story. The finished pottery and other items for sale were very well presented,... More

Combine learning about the process of creating pottery with purchasing beautiful gifts. The shop has nice displays and the grounds are lovely.

Love this place. Great tour especially if one of the workers are around to lead it, otherwise it's self-guided. The pottery itself is beautiful. I always find something to take home. The quality is excellent and looks great in the kitchen for display..
