Emma Bridgewater Beauties

Ahhh, internet. How I am missing you. I'm currently spending my lunch breaks browsing pretty things that I would like within my new place.... It heavily involves ceramic goodness though, and coming from the Potteries it's a good place to start. A local place (for local people) which is in the heart of Stoke on Trent, is the Emma Bridgewater factory. I really like going there for a browse around, particularly in the seconds shop where you can pick up cheaper, slightly imperfect designs from the Emma Bridgewater collections. I already have loads of stuff from there, and I like picking up the different designs as it all fits with each other despite their different patterns! I love some of the more quirky items too like the Red Fox mug. They have loads of these in the factory shop with different animals on, but the fox is the best! 
The reason I like Emma Bridgewater so much though, is the fact that it keeps the heritage of the Potteries alive a bit more. Over the years the ceramic industry in Stoke has seen a massive decline in the amount of wares which are produced and sold here, and although Emma Bridgewater may be a little on the pricey side, it's a price I am willing to pay to try and keep a little bit of the cities heritage alive! If you ever visit the factory you can find a little cafĂ© and a workshop at the back too where you can paint your own ceramic piece to have fired and take away. When I am a little less poor I've decided to paint a chicken. It will be a good day.
