Went looking for a gift for my mother and I found it in Potters on Cotter. The artist was wonderful answering any questions. Very nice selection of items ranging in styles and colors. I found a very nice serving bowl for my mom and I know she will love it! (Or Ill keep it! lol)

We bought some pottery when the store first opened nearly a decade ago. It's changed little and again we found more to buy. This is a great place to visit if you enjoy unique seashore themed pottery. Anne bought several magnetic star fish and a pot that chills dips. I enjoyed viewing the glazed fish, art and photo gift cards.

Beautiful handmade pottery in this little gem. Stop here for your souvenirs instead of the junk shops!. So nice to meet the owner and see her process from start to finish.

This shop is a little off of the beaten path but has lots of charm. There are some great pottery pieces for purchase. Beautiful colors and useful items. The merchandise is constantly changing and everything is one of a kind. I will be back on our next visit to Port A.

Love this place! This was our first visit, & sorry we didn't find it sooner. Lots of pieces by the owner as well as some by other artists. There's not only pottery but jewelry as well. We will be sure to come back the next time we're on the island.

We went looking for a gift for a friend, but several of us ended up buying things for ourselves, too. I got a beautiful ornament made from the imprint of a starfish. Next time I'm getting the one with the seahorses! There were cups and bowls and art and jewelry and all sorts of things. Everyone should stop by and... More
