Autumn Splendor, Silver Lining

Now that fall has burst into full splendor, we love to see the rich autumnal hues of purple, gold and copper in our selection of gifts at People's Pottery and at We consulted our "crystal ball" above (really a blown-glass globe by Glass Eye have to see this collection!) to divine the trends popping up in our selection of heartwarming gifts for her, him and home.  The result: rich purple accents for now -- and textured, cozy metallic for later. Our store might look distinctly fall with new additions and exclusive collections, but we continue our year-round points of distinction: friendly advice, inspired ideas, gorgeous gift-wrapping, and shipping to anywhere you'd like to spread happiness, love and warmth with the perfect pick-me-up.

The clock strikes nine! By Allen Designs.

Autumn pops of color in the kitchen.

Pack this cinda b sack and follow the foliage! 
Bold and jumping in leaves!

Light up the room.

When it's time to decorate for the holidays and layer against the cold, our sparkly metallics have a warmth and whimsy that you might not expect -- draped in brilliance, robed in elegance and offset with touchable texture or blazing winter-sky blue.

Warm relief for chilly days.

Owl ornaments you'll want to cuddle.

Like showers of sunshine on a bright winter day.
Light the way to a blessed season.

Below, ideas to sustain the last sparks of summer into a heart-warming flame this fall.

Pokemon Love Pandora, Too!

It all started when our Twirly Girl went out to find Pokemon -- and caught the eye of a like-minded purple pal.

"Where did you find that gorgeous dress?" asked her new friend, Rattata. "It's so colorful and twirly!"

She gave directions to People's Pottery, and word spread fast. Soon, Rochester's best boutique for "her, him and home" became popular among the Pokemon. We caught them admiring our storefront and our Pandora display!

If you're not playing Pokemon GO, it's likely that your kids, grandkids, friends, neighbors, co-workers, cousins, etc. are glued to this game. In that spirit, we're dedicating this blog post to finds in the store inspired by this summer craze. And like these creatures, our shipping extends around the world.

This sculpture by Forked-Up Art celebrates walking...a key aspect of the game!

This "Lenny and Eva" cuff reminds us never to give up -- even when conquests seem elusive.

Like Pokemon, but cuter!

Bursting with the beauty of summer, a reminder to explore the nature around us.

Stop in to see what's new. You never know what treasures (or conquests) might await you! While you're here, consider purchasing a Made By Maia set of notecards to support Daystar, an organization for medically fragile children; and to encourage a young artist with a very big heart.

We look forward to seeing you!

So sweet, we're star-struck!

This Pandora promotion has a nice ring to it...

"Buy two, get one free." Usually this kind of sweet deal applies to things like candies, cereals or socks. But through this weekend, you can enjoy a free ring from our beautiful Pandora collection with purchase of two. It's the perfect time to build your collection by mixing, matching, stacking and styling. We have great ideas to get your started.

While you're in our Pandora "store-within-a-store," don't miss the chance to admire the new dangle charms and Pandora Essence Collection of Zodiac signs. We can't think of a more perfect gift than one whose design is written in your stars. When was the last time someone asked you, "What's your sign?" (Be prepared!)

Speaking of celestial finds -- we have two more new arrivals to leave you starry-eyed. One is our new Neptune collection by cinda b. Art Deco design meets on-trend summer colors for a beautiful way to rocket out of town.

And the other: our Chrysalis by Willow children's jewelry, for the girl who means the sun, moon and stars to you. This line also features rainbows, ice cream, ladybugs and other fun charms  -- so while Mom or Grandma builds her Pandora collection, daughter or granddaughter can follow suit!


In the meantime, keep cool from the blazing sun of Rochester and stop in soon to "stargaze" with us!
