Always the weekend before Thanksgiving, our event starts on Friday with a Gala Auction and continues on Saturday and Sunday. Shopping begins when the doors open Friday night and doesn’t stop until we all move out on Sunday. Don’t forget the shops are open too! Venture out! We don’t want you to miss a thing. With just under 100 pottery shops, there is no chance of you to leaving Seagrove without finding that special treasure for yourself or someone else. We hope you’ll have a grand experience and plan to come back time and time again.
