Oh, my gosh, I felt like a child in a candy shop when I happened upon this gem of a store in the Premium Outlet Mall in Williamsburg, VA.

Do yourself a favor and stop by when you are in the Williamsburg Premium Outlet. If you are a Baby Boomer, it is worth the trip just to reminisce of growing up with Corningware and Corelle products. If you grew up with parents or grandparents who enjoyed Corningware, it is your turn to treat yourself.

When I married in the 1979, I used to ask my family to buy a Corningware piece for me for my birthday or for the holidays. So I owned a vast assortment of bake ware and dishes.

Corningware products were manufactured in 1958. 2018 marks their 60th anniversary. How many products can boast of this accomplishment? How many products still look as good as they did 40, 50, 60 years ago?

Episodes of the 1970's TV hit series The Odd Couple show Felix Unger (played by the late Tony Randall) using a Corningware Blue Cornflower coffee pot. I still have the same coffeepot and the original tea pot, too. Made in America and so it lasts a lifetime.

One of the store employees overheard me telling my son that I owned many vintage pieces. She was interested in everything Corningware so a few days later I returned with several original casserole dishes and also e-mailed photos of the coffee and tea pots. The store employees took photos of the pieces I had and, thank goodness, they were able to sell me some replacement glass lids that I misplaced or broke throughout the years.

I owned the Spice of Life products; my mother had the Cornflower series and my mother-in-law owned dozens of the French White pieces. Unfortunately, I didn't have room for everything I "inherited" so I donated all of the Spice of Life pieces, many of the blue Cornflower pieces and several French White bake ware to local charities.

Employees Misty and Areanna are warm, greet everyone with a smile and are so knowledgeable with their products. I simply cannot put into words how happy I was to shop and meet them.

The store offers so many products that you will not leave empty-handed. It is timeless and truly a part of our American culture. Who doesn't know Corningware???? Start your own family tradition, add pieces to the sets your family needs or stop by to purchase gifts for family and friends.

Thank you, Areanna and Misty, for your help and thank you Corningware/Corelle for making products that last for generations!!!!

I can’t believe the nerve of the owners of this property. Parking is always a problem here. You spend a lot of time driving around looking for a space. You usually find one as someone is leaving. They roped off a huge section of the center area of the parking lot under the shade and are now charging $5 for you to park here. This is absolutely ridiculous. They need to be adding more spaces and not taking them away. If this is their mentality I think I will take my business elsewhere.

Been to quit a few outlets from Atlantic city New Jersey to The Outter Banks North Carolina, this by far is definitely up there most likely our 2nd favorite Outlets, other then Delaware's Rohoboth beach Tanger Outlets. This place is loaded with variety, over a hundred stores, plenty of places to eat, shop, waste time, and have a good time...definitly a place our family enjoys going to anytime we are in Williamsburg, located right on Richmond Road witch is the road in Williamsburg that takes you everywhere you need to get to

Outlet was very large (a lot of walking)! Prices could have been a lot lower considering it is a outlet! My husband is a shopaholic and knows prices and he felt after doing the math (buy one get the other for 50% off) was really no deal at all, you still ended up paying regular price for both. The real deal was was going by the Information Desk and getting the list of stores that offered a discount in addition to! I did buy two pair of sneakers from Skechers!

We did our back-to-school shopping this weekend and benefited from the nurse sales tax for these few days. Under Armour was the best store we were able to get several pairs of shoes for children for under $30. Under Armour is our favorite store. This whole area of stores was nicely laid out. The outlets were in the process of putting brand new Shrubbery around and Landscaping which will make this a very nice shopping experience.
