My name is Cindy Cole and I first discoverd Polish pottery when my husband and I were stationed in Germany. A very dear friend of mine invited me on a trip to Poland to maybe purchase some pottery. Well that was the end of that. I was hooked. That was in 1998 and in 1999 my husband was getting ready to retire and we (I guess that depends on who you ask) decided to buy a bed & breakfast in southern Vermont.
