One of my all time favorite places to shop (especially on a limited budget) is the twice a year Palomar Glass and Pottery Sale. The sale will be tomorrow through Saturday. I am attaching a pix of one of my favorite potters. I have attended this event for over –well double digit number. Also the glass is so incredible and I usually pick up a piece or two to add to my varied drinking glasses that are always a hit as a gift too. Some items seem high but gallery prices are two to three times that so are still a great deal. Enjoy.

Below is the info from Palomar College.
