Williamsburg Pottery Reviews & Ratings
Start with skidrow everything is 80% off. We got a cool tin sign for 1.06 and we got a few other things still at a great rate. Truly we could spend all day just shopping A nice local section.
The items are so, so much more expensive than the original pottery. Many of the merchandise can be purchased at Wal-Mart for a fraction of the price. The food and wine section is nice but usually has very few people. The floral department used to have isles of people making arrangements for sale. Now, the arrangements and the individual components are outrageously over priced. Nobody who knows anything about this stuff would pay what they’re asking. The kitchen and home decor sections are lacking and don’t have near the inventory that they used to have. It’s very sad as this used to be a highlight of our trips to Williamsburg. Management could have utilized the same concept and inventory and kept a good thing going. However, the consistently empty parking lot is indicative of what the attraction has become.
DANGEROUS!!!! Hold on to your purses ladies! Incredible deals, incredible buys, wow on the sales and hope and pray you don't live too close to this place! We bought a 10 piece place setting and 10 cups to go with it, clearance for $30! They have things you wouldn't find in regular stores and what you do find in stores, they are far below their prices, you want to buy it for those "just in case" times. Maybe Christmas presents would suffice purchasing some items now... anyone that moves to these neck of the woods, I will be directing them to this place to go shopping for ALL OF THEIR INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR NEEDS, FOOD AND WINE NEEDS TOO!!!!
Enjoyed browsing the clearance aisles and the many different varieties of stores in this location. Was really fun time.
The must be going out of business the staff were scarce and not very nice. The only department that had any products was the wine. I would only recommend this place if you are looking for a store closing bargain.
