Some of the town's most sophisticated ceramics are sold at Keramikkens Hus, Ndr. Ringvej 14 (tel. 97-32-05-88).

One of the most intriguing shopping prospects is not in Ringkøbing itself, but directly south of the town at the hamlet of Stauning. Follow the secondary road along the east side of Ringkøbing Fjord until you come to the village, where you'll see a sign indicating Bousøgaard, Bousøvej 6, Stauning (tel. 97-36-91-72). This is an old thatched West Jutland farm with four wings. The attractive barn is an art gallery, the biggest in West Jutland, with oils, graphics, and sculptures by well-known Danish artists. There's also an on-site potter's workshop, where the old potter's craft is still practiced. Next to the workshop is a museum of Danish decorated pottery from the 1800s to about 1950. Hours are Monday to Saturday 11am to 5pm.
