I recently inquired at Paint Pottery or Bead it for my daughter's 17th Birthday pricing. They advised that it was $160 for the party which would include a memory plate, invites, plates, cups and the ability to bring in food. I advised that I wouldn't be needing any of those things as we were just coming there to paint. The only thing that my daughter did want was the memory plate. Upon check out - which the total of all the girls pottery was $120, soda purchased on site was $12.75 - - - - - - I was charged $200.79!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I questioned the cashier, but didn't want to make a big deal as she was just a grunt not the owner/manager. When I went back to pick up the pottery, after firing, I advised the manager that I would never be back there as I was EXTREMELY overcharged. My total, with the pottery, sodas, and memory plate should have been $167 - she was VERY rude and said "well you booked the Birthday package and got the invites, plates, cups, memory plate and could bring in food" I told her that I never received any of those things, other than the memory plate, and I didn't bring in food. She stood there and argued with me as to why I was ripped off and charged too much and that she was right. TERRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICE!!!!!!!!!!! Needless-to-say.............I will not be returning to this rip off facility. I asked why I wasn't just charged for the items we received, and she said "you booked the Birthday Party Package". I told her, when I came in to inquire about have a few girls come to do pottery, she TOLD me I had to do a package, there was no other offer to just bring the girls in to do pottery. If I would have just brought them in to do pottery, my total would have only been $135 + tax, but since I had never been there before I didn't know what their "deal" was and that as a business owner SHE was responsible to give me my options. So just because she wanted to make an extra $, she lost a customer and I will continue to tell everyone about what a rip off this place is. It would have been cheaper for me to take the girls to the Kalahari as their prices are more economical. Then when we got home and opened up the pottery that they had all bubble wrapped, I was even more ANGRY - there are HUGE drip lines from the final glaze stage that THEY put on before firing - so not only did I pay $50+ too much but the stuff is crap! NEVER GO THERE - FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE TO HAVE YOUR CHILDS BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!!!!

This place had a lot to offer and they have classes or you can have parties there and bring people in for a bead making or pottery party. I loved that they had so much pottery there that you could design yourself. I would love to do that some day. I went in for some beads and was pleasantly surprised that they had an abundance of them and very helpful and knowledgable staff.
Parking is a little shady because it is in De Pere, and parking is never good there!

I visited this store for the first time this past week and was very impressed with the service I received and the selection of crafting items. The store is very well arranged and it is easy to find just the right items for the craft that you are looking for. The staff is very knowledgable and will assist you in finding the correct supplies to complete whatever project you are attempting. They also have reasonable prices and are comparable to other stores in the area.
