My wife and I were literally shown the door by the owner when we said we were just learning to be potters. The owner said he wasn't going to make any money from us. Don't patronize Mill Creek Pottery in Luray, unless you want to come away upset and angry.

I was there when you attempted to crash the Millcreek pottery semi-annual fundraiser. This FUNDRAISER is held on private property, at a private studio. The afternoon feast and evening fete raised close to $10,000 for three animal rescue centers.You were an unknown, unexpected, walk-in. You did not have an invitation. You did not have a ticket. You balked at the $200. per plate price. You should have just left. The husband of the ticket taker that refused to admit you is a retired, field grade, Military Police Officer.(not the owner)He knew how to run you off. He touched it with a needle when he stated, "We are not going to make any money on you".

I am the owner of Millcreek pottery.I arrived after the incident. Millcreek Pottery was founded in 1970 by a group of post graduate Univ. of Md. Artists. For more than 42yrs. it has served and established and recommended clientele. Our business policies are simple, "we only do business with people we like"."we only do business when we make a profit".
