Potters Place, a not for profit school and cooperative pottery studio, is home to 23 working potters and 5 clay instructors. I’ve been a member of Potters Place for 10 years. We share kilns, make glazes, plus all the things that go into running a successful cooperative studio.  Each year, we host two open studio events (fall and spring).  Year-round, we have a small gallery on site where customers can come by appointment and purchase direct from the potters of Potters Place.

Boston Globe reports:

BOSTON — The annual sales tax holiday in Massachusetts would be held Aug. 16-17 under a bill released by a legislative committee of conference on Wednesday evening.

The sales tax holiday was included in an economic development bill, which is among the last major pieces of legislation being considered before the legislative session ends for the year on Thursday.

Rep. Joseph Wagner, a Chicopee Democrat and chairman of the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, said that sales tax holiday “is significant for the Commonwealth’s economy.
