Reflections on a 2013 Holiday Season

Saturday, 18 January 2014 15:17 Written by James Sankowski

As we enter the year 2014 and the 39th year of Ballston Lake Pottery, ( Can you believe that it’s been that long?), I want to post some of the photos from my recent Holiday Sale and Christmas Season.

The season between my pre-Thanksgiving Sale and Christmas this year was condensed and interspersed with a number of weather events. It was a challenging time for me in filling everyone’s order requests and making sure that the shop had a good selection of work on hand.
I’m glad to say this season went well, and customers seemed pleased with the work they found here. I’ve posted a number of photos below that tell this past season’s story in a visual order of events.
I thank all who helped support my business this past year. I wish you well in 2014 and look forward to seeing you again.
