It St Croix Pottery Tour Time Again

Every year St. Croix Valley Potters have a studio tour and you can go visit the artists and buy so amazing pots. This Year it’s being held May 6th, 7th and 8th with special selection available May 5th.  Details at this link minnesota potters  Each location has multiple potters and it very cool.  Because of the pandemic the tour has gone virtual this year.  I’m not affiliated with this group but I was able to attend several years ago and have purchased virtually as well.  It’s very cool and a neat way to find some treasures to add to your collection.
