One of my favorite places to get my polish pottery fix is Zofia’s Polish Pottery Store.
(Driving directions and a map are on their website!)
The store itself is located around the back of the Hotel Garni in a little town called Rodenbach.
The parking lot is around the side – Don’t worry, it has two entrances – just in case you miss the first one because
your crazy wife is trying to lean across the dashboard to take a picture of the signs so she can write about it on her blog.
The store is over there under the porch… See the blue sign?
Here it is up close… I can almost taste it…
As you walk in, there are shelves upon shelves laden with dishes and serving pieces.
This is pretty close to what the show rooms in Poland looked like.
(Here is a post where I wrote about visiting Poland and watching someone paint it!)
Every piece you can imagine from casserole dishes, to coffe mugs, to egg platters…
And a few surprises as well – polish pottery earrings anyone?
What I like about this store is the option to order pieces in a specific pattern or shapes.
My collection of pottery is completely mismatched patterns,
but I bought all of my plates from the same factory so they would stack properly.
It’s a thing with me.
They have to stack.
You see, different factories have slightly different shaped molds for their pieces…
And they all have slightly different patterns they use for their pieces…
But there are a few traditional patterns you can find everywhere…
I’m rambling -
I’ll have to expand on this in another blog post!
What do your everyday dishes look like?
If you collect polish pottery, where do you like to shop for new pieces?
