It's not often today that outlet shopping involves a trip to the factory. This one does, and we had to wait for a shift change before making our way to the retail outlet in the rear of the factory overlooking the Ohio River below. We counted four state license plates in the visitors' parking lot. And no wonder. The selection... More

This is a factory with a small retail shop in front. The side of the store has bins full of seconds, some of which are barely noticeable. This is not Williams-Sonoma, so if you are thinking that you will be disappointed. The prices in the retail store are significantly lower than MSRP and these are NOT seconds (a large coffee... More

We stopped at the Homer Laughlin Pottery in Newell to look for seconds and visit the museum. I had called the day before in hopes of taking the tour but they are only offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays so be aware of that when planning to visit. You also need to call to book a tour well in advance and... More

The Homer Laughlin Factory tour is fantastic and a great way to understand how our tableware is created! The workers are all very informative and willing to take the time to explain their jobs. The tour guides know the whole process. The outlet features both firsts and seconds of Fiesta Ware.

This was my first trip to the area..Our adventure started when we crossed the toll bridge into Newell from E Liverpool. My hubby and I had a blast hunting for treasures in the seconds room. I liked the full showroom to get an idea of all the colors and pieces available. I did buy a Celebration plate at regular price... More

If you're a fan of Fiesta dinnerware or any of the HLC products, this is a must go-to place. The annual tent sale is also a great event!!

We stopped here to get some pieces from the outlet store to add to our Fiesta Ware set. We found what we were looking for in the outlet room. These pieces are cheaper since they do have some flaws. Take the time to inspect the piece you are looking for. The flaws on the items we bought were minimal. In... More

This was my first time visiting the Homer Laughlin China company as I was looking for Fiesta Ware dinnerware. They have a nice outlet shop and a room to purchase seconds. Very nice selection of the Fiesta Ware. The colors are beautiful.

One of the largest if not the largest ceramic manufactures in the world. Amazing and gargantuan are all I can say.
