Eldreth Pottery

EldrethPottery1

The Eldreth Pottery Showroom and Factory is located in 
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in a town called Oxford. 

After driving down bucolic country roads, here's what you see. 
Doesn't this just beckon you to go in and take a look?

Eldreth Pottery was established in 1982, with beginnings in a basement, followed by growth and success!

Pete took me behind the scenes. From the mixer to the kilns, this is where the action is!

Snowmen and Santas all lined up. Everything was so orderly.

I so enjoyed my visit! I couldn't resist bringing home a purchase,
which I can't tell you about since I'd reveal the secret gift for a special someone!
(After I give it to her, I'll come back and show you a photo.)
