TN POTTERY: Blue Ridge ~ Erwin ~ Maries ~ Pigeon Forge

Villa Rica, Georgia

Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    USPS rates increased again in January 2021. USPS rates are figured based on package weight, dimensions, distance between buyer and shipper. We are attempting to counter-balance this USPS rate increase by:

(1) Shortening buyers wait time by shipping SAME or NEXT day after receiving an order.
(2) Making certain that we use the smallest box in which to safely ship an order.
(3) Using lightest possible packing materials.
(3) Using FLAT RATE or REGIONAL box if cheaper for buyer than regular PRIORITY would be.
(4) Refunding any shipping overage charged by Etsy's shipping calculator.
(5) Offering FIRST CLASS PACKAGE as a shipping option when practical.

Our ON-LINE HISTORY includes hosting antiquemaster.com since the mid-1990's! Our shop inventory includes vintage Blue Ridge, Cash Family, Clinchfield Artware, Negatha Peterson's Erwin Pottery, Marie's Pottery, other pottery hand-painted in the Blue Ridge tradition, AND Tennessee' s Pigeon Forge Pottery. We carry many QUALITY items ranging from more commonly found items to very difficult to find pieces. Many of our less than top quality items are found in the BARGAIN BEAUTY and UNDER $5 DOLLAR categories. Please read each description carefully and view each image. We want you to be among our many happy buyers!

1) Frequently, we are able to ship SAME or NEXT business day following receipt of payment! Orders almost always ship within 1-2 business days of payment receipt. We let buyer know as soon as possible if a shipment is delayed leaving our location.

2) A high percentage of the rate charged by USPS goes to initiate a shipment. Therefore, placing 2 or more items on one order almost always ships for less per item than only one item would ship. Check this out by ADDING and DELETING items to an order.

FIRST CLASS PACKAGE: items with packed weight of 16 ounces (or less) can ship FIRST CLASS PACKAGE rather than the more expensive PRIORITY rate. We add insurance (at our expense since it is not included in this USPS mail service). Delivery of FIRST CLASS PACKAGE takes longer than PRIORITY. In this age of COVID and mail backlog, we tend to offer this cheaper service less frequently since it adds to a longer total USPS delivery time. Also, the cost of the FIRST CLASS PACKAGE rate gets closer and closer the the same cost as PRIORITY each year as USPS prices increase. Look for DROP DOWN MENU at CHECKOUT to SELECT this shipping service, if available.

MEDIA MAIL: For CHEAPER delivery of books, select this option (if available) at checkout. If you wish to REDUCE shipping COST per item, add MULTIPLE books to your order. Delivery, however, is slower than PRIORITY, adding to the total estimated delivery time. This service is not available if the shipment contains items other than books. It can be available if shipped with other items qualifying for MEDIA MAIL shipping such as VHS.

We've been selling, packing, and shipping FRAGILE ITEMS since 1995 and look forward to adding you to our long list of happy, repeat customers! We're buyer friendly ~ ASK questions! EXCEPTION: Due to LEGAL ISSUES, we do not address questions regarding VALUE of Blue Ridge or related items.

If you don't find what you are looking for, use SEARCH BOX to ENTER correctly spelled PATTERN NAME, words such as SET, LOT, DEMITASSE. APPLE, PLATTER, BOWL, SUGAR BOWL, CREAM PITCHER, SQUARE, PINK ROSE, BIG RED FLOWER, BOX, VASE, TILE, FLAT BOWL, ROUND VEGETABLE, OVAL VEGETABLE, TRAY, LIFTER, CAKE PLATE, TAB BOWL, COASTER, OWL, BEAR, etc. Enter 10plate, 9plate, 8plate 7plate, 6plate, 6bowl, 5bowl to find plates and bowls. Use CATEGORIES (left menu) to narrow the search. We have many items not yet listed in our shop and we're happy for you let us know the items and patterns you are looking for. Perhaps we have a match!

We are delighted to have buyers tell us that our service and product have achieved the standard set forth in the listing. If there is an issue with any aspect of a transaction, please contact us promptly following receipt of package using Etsy's personal message system. Etsy's feedback option should be reserved for 5-Star Positive comments. At one time, GUEST buyers had to contact Etsy in order to leave feedback. We hope this has changed!

Thank you for your interest ~ we look forward to doing business with you!

    We began selling Blue Ridge on the internet in mid-1990, long before internet sales were common. Whether you are a long time collector or a recent comer to the fascinating world of Blue Ridge, enjoy browsing and buying from our HUGE collection!
