It’s a Fiesta!

We are back from Ohio and I’m finally getting caught up enough to blog. Had a great time visiting family — more on that later — thought I’d start with where we went first while everyone else had to work: the Factory Outlet at Homer Laughlin China Co. This is where all of the Fiesta in the world is made.

It’s in Newell, West Virginia — right next to the Ohio River. It was built in 1907 — a really neat building with lots of character. We had a tons of fun, but one warning — don’t go there when you’re hungry!

We have all colors of Fiesta — we could never settle on just a few colors — I love opening the dishwasher and finding neat color combos to use in stamping projects.

  5. Hi Lisa

    Love the photo! I used to live in WV and right before moving to TX we visited the outlet. I too couldn’t settle on just one color so it’s nice to know there’s someone else out there (coincidentally in Austin) that has a mutlicolor Fiesta collection.

    I couldn’t believe what the outlet considered “seconds”. It all looked great to me. I was able to get some of the hard to find colors like a lime green and light purple. Did you bring home any great finds?

    Thanks for sharing the photo.
