Pottery show grows

March 23, 2012

Over the past 15 years, the Catawba Valley Pottery and Antiques Festival has turned into quite a show.

Vendors and visitors alike say it’s a “big deal” — one that drew out dozens of ticketholders nearly 10 hours before the doors to the Hickory Metro Convention Center opened Friday night.

Dr. Allen Huffman, the festival’s founder and director, said at least eight people waited in camper chairs for entry to the 7 p.m. gala show when he arrived early Friday morning.

“Everyone wants to get in, find their favorite potter and get it before anyone else does,” Huffman said.
