THE  COLLECTORS  OF  ILLINOIS  POTTERY  &  STONEWARE

Founded in 1983, the Collectors of Illinois Pottery and Stoneware club was established to bring together collectors of vintage American pottery and stoneware and to share information about the Midwestern potters and potteries. Our annual convention entails a great vehicle for all to meet at a great location and facility at the end of each October. This confab entails a business meeting, evening social,  room sales, show sale / displays, seminar, banquet dinner,  professional power point slideshow presentation, and main evening auction.  WELCOME TO OUR SITE, and we wish to  extend our personal WELOME ABOARD!  


A 2014 MEMBERSHIP IS FREE FOR NEW JOINING MEMBERS.
