Williamsburg Va Pottery

I thought I would share with you a video that brings you back in time. You can learn a little history about the beginnings of what was at one time the #1 tourist destination in the state of Virginia. The Wiliamsburg Pottery. Started in 1938 by James Maloney ( Jimmy). The first products produced were 18th century reproduction salt glazed pottery. They are still the supplier to Colonial Williamsburg for these items. Located on Richmond Road near Rt 199. Approximately 2 miles west of Prime Outlets in Lightfoot Va. If you are from Va you will know that it’s nickname is ” The Pottery” I can remember many trips there as a child.

Through the years The Pottery mushroomed into a multi structured complex covering over 200 acres. They sell a variety of items from Gourmet Food, Wine, Beer, Picture Frames, Cheese, Stemware, Silk Flowers, Furniture ans many other items. Although attendance is way down from earlier years it is still an adventure to visit and shop there.

At one time, it was estimated that more than 3,000,000 people visited the Pottery on a yearly basis, and it was a top tourist attraction in the State of Va Historic Triangle

Here is the video enjoy !
