Know this is hand crafted but, the pieces are way to expensive for my taste. The other ladies felt the same way. Maybe because it was Craft Festival Time

Quick place to get unique souvenirs from your trip. You can do pottery classes but I'd call ahead. We got our christmas gifts here. only takes 10-15 minutes at most.

Hi: You need to contact Fowler's directly. I don't work for them. I was just a student in their class. You will really enjoy the class. It's a ton of fun and the staff is so easy to work with. Have fun.
