A very interesting shop to drop in to. Not only does it capture a store to buy fine pewter, but you can experience how the pewter is hand crafted, the history of the store and hands on with buffering, and engraving sand dollars made out of pewter.

I had never seen pewter being crafted, but in this shop you can watch the artisans at work. We purchased several pieces, very reasonably priced for such pretty jewelry.

Great variety of locally designed pewter products - many are maritime inspired. Watch Craftspersons on site display their skills as they make pewter objects; great educational for all ages , also good diversion for the kids as the adults shop ..

Wonderful shop. All items made right there on the premises. You can actually watch the workers making the items they sell right in front of you. Beautiful items. Great place to buy gifts.

The back part of the store has a small shop in it and you can view the process by which the items are made. There is also a small display about the history of... More

We almost missed Mahone Bay. Pretty little village with some nice shops. Amos Pewter has to one of the best. Fine workmanship and very friendly staff. Enjoyed watching some of the folks making pewter items. Finished our gift shopping here.

Each year since 1988 we have purchased the Traditional Christmas Ornament. So many other things to buy, including napkin rings, photo frames and more. Many great gift ideas.

The best part of Amos Pewter is the back of the shop where you can watch folks actually making the pewter. The staff did a great job demonstrating the process and answering questions. They are willing to engage with visitors and show them how awesome their craft truly is. The shop, itself, offers many varieties of pewter goods and you... More
