Carolina Pottery Fall Haul 2016 & Shopping Tips For Wreaths

Sharing is caring!

My Carolina Pottery Fall Haul & Shopping for Supplies by

If you live anywhere in North or South Carolina, get your booty to Carolina Pottery this weekend!  They have some of the best selections for your fall wreaths.  I found ribbon galore…a ribbon addicts dream come true, no joke!  They had tons of fall silk flowers, fall signs, pumpkins, work wreath forms, deco mesh and Halloween goodies too.  So what did this freaky gal do?  I took my iPhone into their store and filmed a Facebook Live video.  You will see in the video, others thought I was a freak too! Bahaha!  But before I get to the Carolina Pottery Fall Haul video, let me tell you a little about their customer service. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

I heard stories from my ebook customers who say they would call and the awesome people at Carolina Pottery would spend 45 minutes or more helping them purchase over the phone.  Say what? That’s is awesome.  But some good news for you is that they now have shopping directly from their website. Whenever I’m in their store, the staff are always so willing to help search for items and eager to answer all my questions.  Not to mention all the ideas I get from analyzing their beautiful premade wreaths.  Also, if you have a tax exempt status for your creative business, just head to their customer service counter and create an account and you won’t have to pay sales tax.

My Carolina Pottery Fall Haul 2016 & Tips

  • Take your car that has the biggest trunk for all the awesome stuff you will find at great prices.
  • Bring your friends because the store is large and you may get distracted from all the items.  Your friends will be there to keep you focused!  Plus shopping with friends can spark more ideas.
  • Don’t be afraid to use unusual colors for your fall wreaths.  As you can see in the video, I suggest using a denim colored deco mesh, which produced this cute fall wreath below.

  • Make sure to fluff your silk flowers and make them come to life before using them in your arrangements.
  • Don’t be afraid to purchase a premade wreath for your door, especially if you are just too dang busy.  You can make it personal by adding a monogram sign on top of it.
  • Purchase silk flowers in bushes that can be divided to save money.
  • For metal signs, you can drill holes in the sign and use florist wire to attach to your arrangements.  Click here for tools I recommend for wreath making.
  • Girl, save yo self some time and do not paint your grapevine wreaths…well unless you just really like paint fumes.  Time is money, and this will save you TONS of time.  Also, since the painted wreath is so pretty, don’t cover up the whole thing, keep your wreath design so that half of the wreath is showing.  You can see how I used a Carolina Pottery painted grapevine and sign in my Christmas wreath here.

    I LOVED THE VIDEO OF YOU SHOPPING IN THE POTTERY STORE AS WELL AS THE HOBBY LOBBY SHOP. You inspire me, girl! We have an Old Tyme Pottery store very close to my house and I bet it is is similar to your Columbia Pottery. I m going there this week. We also have a Pat Catan’s Craft store nearby too. I always decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving so I am starting my Christmas Décor asap! I am going to also check out the Columbia Pottery store on line too. I am deffnitely going to look at the painted Grapevine Wreaths too. I love them. I am also a ribbon fanatic like you are , can’t wait to make some bows too. Again, thanks so much for sharing with us. You have such great ideas too! LOVE IT!!!! HAPPY CRAFTING, JULIE! Can’t wait to see your Christmas Haul!!! Hugs, Pat

    I forgot to mention that I used that first roll of Deco mesh you showed us today (Multi colored orange green & cranberry } as a runner on my Dining Room table nd put my centerpiece on it. I used it last Thanksgiving & received many compliments on using it for that. It was a 7ft. piece I cut & it worked out really pretty. There is so much you can do with that Deco Mesh. I didn’t want to forget to mention what I did so I wrote another mail. hugs, pat

    I am new to watching your videos and I’m a avid wreath maker! I so wish we had a Carolina Pottery by me! I live in The Villages, FL and the store I shop at most is Hobby Lobby which is much more expensive and it’s about 45 minutes drive. I started making wreaths a little over 2 years ago and sell them at craft fairs and around the area that I live. Your videos are so helpful and I think your wreaths are beautiful. I would so love to win some of those goodies! This Friday evening I am lying in bed watching Shark Tank! Thanks for sharing your wreath making wisdom!
