There is the Andres Garcia Pottery Shop, a women's co-op (in old train station), and Juan Quezada's house where you can browse gorgeous pottery that is for sale. In additon, there will be children all over the place offering to sell you pottery. If you walk around, people will invite you into their homes to see their pottery. The attached photos were taken at the Andres Garcia Potttery Shop and show the process of how pots are fired and what the finished product looks like. This store will ship pottery and takes credit cards. I think this is the only place in town that ships and takes credit cards. The pottery in the Andres Garcia Shop, the women's co-op and Juan Quezada's house was of VERY high quality.

Address: Everywhere in town
Directions: Just ask people where to go to see pottery and they will be more than willing to help you
