Mark of the Potter

In an old mill near Clarkesville, Georgia is the pottery shop and studio that goes by the name of:





It is a popular little place that has quite a variety of items.  B found a cookbook to buy.

It was a cool place and though it was our first time there, it will not likely be our last.
