  • Westwind Potters: Great Pottery, Not So Great Experience

    by jaydock Updated Aug 10, 2009

    The few times I've been in here, the guy that runs the store has been astoundingly rude and mean to me. I've also witnessed him ream out other customers. If you aren't in there with the intention of buying something, he has absolutely no patience for you. Don't bother to bring your kids in unless they are perfectly behaved. The place apparently has a cult following so I guess he doesn't care how he treats people who aren't his reoccurring buyers.

    That being said, there are some really great and unique pieces, so this is a store you probably wouldn't want to miss. Just don't be surprised if you experience the wrath of the cranky guy at the register.

    Shopping in Harpers Ferry's Lower Town

    During our last visit to Harpers Ferry we did a little shopping in some of the lower town's tiny stores. After wandering around for a few hours, our first stop was Harpers Ferry Wine and Gourmet, probably the last store as you head up the hill out of town. Here we looked at a variety of wine, mostly made in West Virginia. We decided to buy a few bottle of Cheat River wine, probably a little overpriced at about $10 a bottle. The cashier

    Later we went to Harpers Ferry Books, just a few doors down from the wine shop. This tiny bookstore is locally owned and has a nice variety of books tucked into a small, below-street-level store. We wandered around here for about 30 minutes, looking at their books about languages, foreign countries, local interest, and even English literature. We didn't buy anything, but we enjoyed our visit here.

    Most of the shopping in Harpers Ferry's lower town is on High Street, just above the park entrance.

    OK in general we found shops selling antiques and many knick knacs along Washington Street...nicely decorated and not too much schleppy stuff..

    I didnt actually write any of the store names down....I wasnt really interested in buying things...but for those that are it is a pleasant way to digest a meal and part of an afternoon walk in this pretty little town.

    What to buy: There were shops selling "Artisan's" work....coloured and scented candles....some Folk Art...wooden carvings,T shirts and of course Souvenirs of Harpers Ferry.

    What to pay: Prices were obviously geared towards Tourists and those interested in "spending" money...

  • Herb Lady: Eclectic Shop

    by doc48 Written Sep 2, 2006

    The Herb Lady has been around now (2006) for at least 15 years. This small shop contains a wide range of cards, music, decorations, and even herbs. Located across from the railroad station parking lot, it attracts the tourist crowd.

    What to buy: We always went for the new age and celtic music, but the Herb Lady has been getting away from music in the past few years.

  • Herb Lady: New Age stuff

    by wheelock Updated Sep 1, 2006

    This shop has been around for at least fifteen years. Used to sell a lot of Irish and New Age music, plus kitsch, and even dried herbs. They have gotten away from the music lately, but this is still a long established (for Harpers Ferry) shop.
