Christmas at the Potteries

by - Monday, October 17, 2016

One of the best things about living in Leek is the proximity to the potteries that are based in Stoke-on-Trent, this weekend me and my mum (also an avid collector) went to check out the new collections at our two favourite potteries in Stoke to look at their Christmas collections!!! 

Emma Bridgewater

At Emma Bridgewater, they had their Christmas range up and running already and I thought it lived up to the hype. I loved the Robin design (see the photos below, and ended up buying a little baker from this range), even though apparently some people have been saying the Robin is "too skinny".

Emma Bridgewater also has a lovely cafe where me and mum had a spot of lunch, and you can decorate your own pots there and have a tour of the factory!
The best bit is undoubtedly the seconds shop!!! This is where you can buy pieces that slightly didn't make the cut for a (much!!!) reduced price. Definitely worth a look!!!
Emma Bridgewater can be found online here, and in person here where you can also book tours (I've been on one it's very interesting).

Below are some of the goodies in the seconds shop!! An emporium of pottery...


Burleigh is a little bit further into Stoke than EB, but is an absolutely gorgeous building with an equally nice cafe that is right next to the canal. The pottery is really classic, with a really vintage feel and is always beautifully displayed (see below). 

I couldn't see any Christmas layouts or specifically Christmas designs, which is good because it gives me and mum another excuse to go back later in the year, right? 

Burleigh can be found here and at this address:
