They've whined, moaned, and worked, and all of that time spent studying is finally paying off. Congratulate your grad with any number of beautiful gifts, or sneak in a gift card with your "Congrats." We admire the work that our students put in, and we are sure to have all you need to show them that you admire them too. The Potter's Gift House will gift wrap for you free of charge, and be sure to give that grad a proper hug and gift to send them into life's next chapter!
Congratulations to ALL grads! Fantastic work, and good luck in all that the future has to hold.
Fairy Gardens Galore!
Looking for a little summer fun? Get in touch with your whimsical side as you enjoy our number of fairy garden opportunities.
What exactly IS a fairy garden, you say? A fairy garden is a little collection of anything you like! Design your own personal, itty bitty garden with tiny succulent plants, adorable characters, and your own amount of whimsy. We have all sorts of themes waiting to be created. Use your inner imagination and plant a world of color and wonder, all in a tiny setting!
We like to use old chairs, old toolboxes, red wagons, or any flower pot to create our scenes. The opportunities are endless with a creative mind. Go for funky and colorful, or stick with the classic gnome and a decorative trellis.
We hold our own Fairy Garden Workshops here at our very store, so call to get on the list. We will hold several sessions throughout the summer. These workshops make excellent birthday parties also! Call to set up your own private session, and come play with us in the sun as we celebrate the summer. Work in the shade of our 100+ year old Victorian Home, and watch the magic as you enjoy laughter and treats.
You simply CANNOT miss this special event. Store owner and master decorator Judy Jensen has been hard at work with the whole Potter's House crew to re-purpose the furniture treasures of yonder years. Mr. Bob Jensen uses his extraordinary art talent to complete many of these pieces and transform them into brand new inspirations.
This highly anticipated event takes place July 30th, 31st, and August 1st to feature a whole year's worth of "junking" finds turned fab! Modern interpretations of highly desirable antique pieces make this the renovated, re-purposed, and revived furniture event of the summer! Grab a friend and enjoy treats while you shop this special outdoor annual event.

Hand Thrown Pottery Love...
Original Bob Jensen mugs allow time to stop but for a moment as one enjoys a lovely cup of tea or coffee. A cup of tea creates a skip in time, a blissful skip in time...Loose leaf. Cotton bag. Organic or Fair trade, it doesn't matter what type or flavor or price, tea is tea, and tea is wonderful. We have countless flavors! Add a bit of earthy, sweet honey and you're as golden as the bees who made it. Hints of lemon, or little swirls of cooling mint, whichever flavor graces the cup often suits the moment best as it whirls inside hearty, one of a kind pottery. Plus, our one of a kind "tea tray" allows you to wring out your tea bag and place it in the built-in keeper, keeping the mug's base clean and dry. (We can thank Grandma Jensen for inspiring that genius idea!)
Our mugs are hearty, hand-thrown stoneware, the vessel's thick walls insulate the liquid inside, retaining heat far longer than its competitors, and its round shape sits comfortably in your hand. The slightly squiggly sides add much welcomed texture to the mug as the heat seeps through the earthen clay, sinking deep into the fingers that hold it, soothing tired hands at the end of a long day. Our mugs come in endless colors, shapes, and textures, and they are the ultimate mug to enjoy your favorite brew. We know you will love it as much as we do.
Sip. Soothe. Repeat.
We've got it all! Check out decadent Moonstruck "Love-Bug" truffles and bars, Valentines signs, fantastic (highly requested) "real feel" tulips, photo frames, jewelry, pottery and more!
Men, women, children-everybody will have something in our store. Treat your loved ones to a special day, and Happy Valentines Day! May your day be something to be cherished like all of those we hold dear.
