  • Lovely location. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Good gallery. Good food. And...do it yourself crafts!
  • I've been coming up to my brothers cabin at Shell Lake for many years... sometimes I skip a few... but whenever I am at the lake, I make a point to visit The Potters Shed. They support the makers movement by offering hand made, functional arts and crafts at reasonable prices. The artists and their work varies, so it's always interesting and fun!
