‘Passing of the Pots’ in Saluda

Published 6:00 pm Friday, June 15, 2012

Evening Shade Pottery plans the first “Passing of the Pots” in Saluda, Wednesday, June 20 at 6:30 p.m.
Eva McCray, owner of Evening Shade Pottery, is moving her shop about one block down Main Street. To help move all her handmade pottery, she is organizing a “Passing of the Pots” line that will empty her current shop and move all the pottery to her new location at 30 Church Street, behind the Purple Onion.
“I got the idea from the town in Pennsylvania from which I moved,” McCray said. “When the new library was built, this is how all the books were transported from the old library. A long line of volunteers passed books down the line to fill the new library.”
McCray said she will need about 50 volunteers ages 12 and up for the length of the line to reach to the new location. All participants will receive a special T-shirt and refreshments will be served.
If you are interested in being part of the “Passing of the Pots,” show up at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20 at the alley beside Ward’s Grill on Main Street in Saluda. For more information, contact McCray at 828-749-3249 or eva@eveningshadepottery.com.
