If you're planning a visit to my neck of the woods in Virginia, be sure to stop at Noon Whistle Pottery on Main Street in Stanardsville. You'll be so glad you did. The shop is owned and operated by John and Holly, and has some of the most amazing stuff for sale, items you won't find anywhere else. I love this place. I'm always telling folks to stop by and check it out. A travelers paradise for those who love quaint little shops offering homemade crafts, pottery, paintings by local artists, and of course, my books.
John makes gargoyles out of clay like you've never seen, and Holly crafts some of the prettiest dinnerware I've come across. Homemade handbags, jewelry, and so much more are offered there, too. Visit their website and see for yourself. http://www.noonwhistlepottery.com Enjoy your visit, and tell them Ann sent you!
