Polish Pottery is habit-forming. While greeting customers in our shop, our first question is usually, “Are you familiar with Polish Pottery?”
Of course, if the answer is no, we take the opportunity to educate them about the history of the pottery, its durability, its use, and how collectors often mix patterns. Another topic that often comes up during this conversation is just how addictive Polish Pottery is. You collectors out there know it’s true.
Use a Polish Pottery bubble mug once and you don’t want to use anything else. Then, if you have only one, you are forever digging it out of the dishwasher and hand-washing it, not to mention slapping the hands of anyone else in the family that dares touch it. All the more reason to stock up on more mugs.
Of course, your first piece, whether a Polish Pottery bubble mug, scalloped bowl, or figurine is only the beginning of your life-long Polish Pottery journey of beauty and love. Sometimes we joke with loyal customers who tell us they are addicted, that there is a 12-Step Program for them, suggesting something akin to a program. Then we all have a laugh.
But, what if we did have a 12 Step Polish Pottery program? We are visualizing groups where we can have fun while celebrating our fun, loyal addiction to Polish Pottery. Rather than try to dismiss or fix our need for Polish Pottery, we feed it. We could have our own 12 steps at each meeting.
