Pottsgrove Manor, Pottstown, PA

     I'm excited to have my jewelry now in the Pottsgrove Manor gift shop!  

 Pottsgrove Manor Gift Shop

      Pottsgrove Manor was built in 1752 for John Potts, ironmaster and founder of Pottstown, the mansion was situated on a nearly 1,000 acre plantation, which by 1762 included the town of "Pottsgrove."  Although only four acres of original property remain today, Pottsgrove Manor has lost none of its original charm and architectural beauty. The sandstone exterior, elegant interior and fine furnishings reflect the eminence that the Potts family had attained before selling the property in 1783. The mansion has been restored to recreate the lifestyle and times of the Potts family. Pottsgrove Manor is open year-round for guided tours, as well as public programs, school tours, lectures, and workshops. Their museum shop on site offers a fine selection of 18th century reproduction items, books, toys, and more - including my jewelry!

     If you are in the area, please stop in and take a tour and check out the site.  A pair of my gold-filled hoops with red coral teardrops will be on display in the museum.
