Recently I had to return an item I purchased several years ago as it got damaged in a move. I expected to have to pay for a... More

We took our daughter and herr husband into the shop yesterday and they instantly bought some items to take back with them. The staff were busy working on some product and that made it more real to see the creation of these things.

It's part of my annual pilgrimage and I am never disappointed. From the new product constantly available to the pleasant staff willing to provide a demonstration of pewter casting and polishing, this is always a must stop destination.

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.

This store has been making pewter items for many years and the variety of products offered is now very wide. The craftsmanship and quality are excellent. 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
