A Visit to…VENA Polish Pottery, Bolesawiec, Poland
This is just a small store but it is located across the street from Ceramika(White Picket Fence). It is located in a small strip mall type building with 3 other shops(watch for future posts on them!)
The entrance to the Vena store.
The first floor of the store.
Everyone needs one of these!
This is their mark down area right in the front of the store. They mostly have category 5, so you have to watch what you purchase. I have purchased several items over the years from here but only stuff that I know I am not going to put in the oven, dishwasher or serve liquid food in.
Someday when I win the lottery I am getting a Christmas set just like this!!
One of the neat patterns they have there. Other places a few pieces here and there of this pattern but this the place to get it if you like it as they are a GREAT selection of it.
I love the patterns here!!
They offer discounts, the more you buy the more you save!
Here is a piece of theirs I bought on my last trip. It is a category 5 because of the crack, so paid maybe 25 zlotys($8) but it makes a GREAT salad bowl! But I have started using it to put our mail in!
Here is how you know if you have a piece of VENA pottery.
They have unique patterns and have GREAT deals, so this store is on my list every time I visit!
They take US dollars, Zlotys and credit cards.
