Working the set
I always think that no one buys them any more. Really, I think, who uses cream and sugar?
Apparently someone does since they still seem to find their way to new homes.
When they come out of the kiln I have favorites. This one I think, or this one... I can see them taking their respective places in the kitchen next to the coffee pot.
Or, set up on the dinning room sideboard waiting to be brought out to be used for a family occasion.
When we first opened the pottery the customers here were use to the fact that the local potters made jars and then made lids. They would then mix and match them until they had one that fit well enough.
I, on the other hand, had learned to make a lid to fit the jar.
One day I walked into our newly opened shop to find all the jars lined up on the floor, with all the lids off and 3 women walking around trying to match the lids to the jars.
I almost had a heart attack right on the spot. I quickly regained my composure and was able to explain to them that the jars all had their own lids.
We manage to get them all put back together......
I am happy to say this does not happen anymore.
I think that our buying public is more informed now.
Mark and I have been busy listing pottery for sale in our Etsy shop.
If you can't get here and want to pick up something, go use the Etsy shop.
If you see something there and want to bundle a few things you can call or email us.
We would be happy to help you.
