A Taste of What Once Was

The Potter’s House, 1658 Columbia Rd., NW, is an Adams Morgan landmark and a refreshing throwback to the days before all the dreck and million-dollar condo pod people arrived. The Potter’s House, established in 1960, bills itself as a place for good music and good food for good cause. They have music performances–jazz, bluegrass, world–dance performances, poetry and literature readings as well as open mike nights. A $10 suggested donation will get you in. The gift shop purchases pottery, handbags, baskets, candles, crosses and jewelry from Ten Thousand Villages and other organizations that support fair trade products and low-income craftspeople in Third World countries. You can check out their calendar of events at www.pottershousedc.org. Let’s just hope developers don’t get their claws on that part of the block.

    Cancer patients? So that’s the connection between Potter’s House and the Alexandria wig shop? http://dc.metblogs.com/archives/2006/09/the_hidden_drug.phtml

    I knew it was a front, but I was thinking it was Communist Pink-o Lefties..
