During a leisurely Thursday, my retired mum, sister and I took a short drive to the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke on Trent. Being a bit sceptical about what there would be to see during the factory tour, I was more excited about reaching the seconds shop at the end!
However, I was completely wrong. It was fascinating to find out about the process, see the dedicated craftsmanship of the workers and the high levels of inspection. We even had a delicious slice of cake at the end! My sister was very pleased. I now understand and am willing to pay the price.
At the end we managed to have plenty of time to look around the seconds shop. I managed to pick up two lovely pasta dishes and a BIG LOVE mug for only £5. Apart from the odd mark they are prefect. We even managed to put the small cost of the factory ticket towards our final items. We all agreed a very enjoyable day.
