Catawba Valley Pottery--Collectible Sale
In order for entrance into the sale to be fair, orderly and safe for everyone and the pottery a solution was inspired by a tradition used by some of the valley’s best known potters. At 8:45AM on Saturday numbers will drawn randomly to determine the order for going inside. Each person may then select one piece of pottery. Payment will be made and pottery taken to the buyer’s vehicle. Those who want to purchase more may draw a new number for going in a second time (after all the first-timers have entered) when multiple pieces may be purchased--THAT NUMBER WILL BE DETERMINED ON SALE DAY.
Because this sale is in two rooms of the owners' residence--with pottery on shelves, table tops, counters and in cabinets--the owners want the sale entrance to be paced and the number of folks inside at any one time to be determined by what is both appropriate for viewing the pottery and for having guests in their home. No children will be allowed inside. Service animals may enter but no pets/comfort animals.
Cash. Check if cashiers know you. ATM on site.
Follow red signs from Sherrills Ford Presbyterian Church on sale days.
Please enter at your own risk--not responsible for accidents. Any breakage of pottery will, however, be the responsibility of the person who caused it to happen.

This is not a commercially-produced sale. Just some friends helping out friends. So there will be no previews or early private sales, nor will individual questions about prices, etc. be a possibility.
This sale is limited in scope--it is all about pottery--but it has a wide range of potters within it. It is a great opportunity to own pieces that are not produced any more. Please share this information with others who you think might be interested.
