The "Made In America" pottery business has closed their doors. Competition from overseas (China) manufacturing who copied their designs and made everything cheap drove the 145 year old business out of business. Sad day. I was fortunate enough to get several pieces before the end.

Haeger Potteries has been around since the 1800s and deserves to be called more of a tourist attraction. There are group tours of how they make pottery, but you have to call into them to make arrangements. There is a store that sells all of...More

This was a place my mom liked to visit back in the 1960s. They specializes in lamp bases/lamps, vases, bowls, planters, figurines and bakeware. There is a small museum that covers the history of the designers and business. Items range from tabletop sized items to...More
