“Beautiful handcrafted items”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The kids enjoyed pounding out there own design in the back area. There are so many interesting items to choose. I liked the CD holders and photo albums made out of old license plates. Worth a stop.

“Nice to see once”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

There are beautiful items in this store, and it is a great place to look around occasionally. I have purchased a few items there over the years. However, to continue being successful they need to develop a wider variety of product offerings with more price points, and it would be nice to see items featuring Columbus Ohio - Nothing against Pittsburg, but the store is in Ohio.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I visited their shop in Lake Grove, PA. It's about 15 minutes off of I-80 off of I-79. Worth the stop particularly if you need a gift for any occasion. They have a wide variety of really lovely metal work, polish pottery and wood crafts for the home.

“Beautiful Pewter and Aluminum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Loved it. I got several Christmas gifts. Very reasonable. I got myself a couple of pieces of Jewelry as well. Alot of history. Wonderful craftsmanship. Also at the Grove City Outlets in PA. Their forge there was the original and burnt a few years ago. They are rebuiding near the outlets.

“Great craftsmanship.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

The store is situated north of Berlin on scenic SR 62. There is ample parking next to the store. However the parking lot is unpaved which may make it hard for wheelchairs. You are greeted by a friendly staff member offering a choice of a chocolate chip or macadamia nut cookie as you enter the front door. The store resembles a barn with high ceiling. This contrasts nicely with the metal works of art on display.

There is a display to the extreme left at the front of the store showing the history of Wendell August. They have a section of Christmas ornaments and Nativity sets, a section for coasters and trays with unique designs and smaller items such as book marks and wine bottle holder, etc. There is an area at the back of the store showing the machines used and steps in making the items. You can try your hand at hammering a design on metal sheet for a small fee. Engraving is available on site. This is a unique place to visit and also shop for one of a kind items.
