The 56th Annual Exhibit & Sale takes place at the Wesleyan Potters studios, 350 South Main Street (Rt.17), Middletown. Walk in the front door and you are greeted by an array of color. And it’s not just one kind of craft – it’s elegant, it’s whimsical, it’s practical, it’s glass goblets, one-of-a-kind wood sculptures, ceramic garden ornaments, felted finger puppets, copper bangle bracelets, baskets made from sea grass and much more. Prices range from $8 for a miniature ceramic fairy house to $32 for a hand woven scarf, to $75 for a silver pendant to $150 for a whimsical copper sculpture to $850 for a one of kind end table made from Connecticut grown spalted sugar maple wood. As all work sold at Wesleyan Potters is juried, the collector can be re-assured that what they purchase is well made and meets the high standards Wesleyan Potters is known for. Each item is handmade in the USA.

The Exhibit & Sale runs from November 25 to December 11. Hours are every day from 10-6 pm, Thursdays and Fridays hours are extended until 9 pm. For more information call 860-347-5925 or visit
