ardith one was established in 1971 by Bev (Ardith) and Bill Don with the prime objective of offering quality, functional pottery at affordable prices. Bill (former accountant) and Bev (banker) both felt the entre-preneurial pull to do something different back in 1970 when they first met. The result was ardith one, Canadian Pottery & Crafts.
We represented hundreds of potters over our 48 years of business and represented over 60 artisans at a time in our 1,000 square foot space in the heart Yonge Lawrence Village.
Considered to be the definitive pottery shop, ardith one became a landmark in the specialized field of Canadian handcrafted pottery. Hundreds of couples registered for weddings, thousands of mugs were sold and tens of thousands of boxes were gift wrapped!
It was our greatest pleasure to come into the store everyday and to enjoy the huge variety of pottery and other crafts.
We retired in June, 2019 after 48 wonderful years.
When you think pottery...think ardith one.
