I like to give my clients house warming gifts that fit their personality. There is so many beautifully designed pieces to choose from. The tree of life is one of my favorites. They have a jelly fish floating inside glass that is stunning to say the least. The details and workmanship is breathtaking.

Our first visit to Pairpoint was a stop on the Cape Cod Railroad, and we returned a couple of days later. What a neat find! (You can reach it on 6A under the Sagamore bridge.) We got a factory tour and saw the glass blowers in action. The process is fascinating, watching the glass go from glowing orange at 2000 deg in the furnace to 1500 deg as they blow and mold it into various shapes. Employees were friendly and available to answer our questions. You can also view from the second floor showroom. (It's not a big place.) The showroom has a wide variety of items for purchase, from inexpensive sun catchers to stemware, bowls and decorative shapes. It's hard to resist the beautiful glass. Paripoint traces it's history back to the 1830s as Mount Washington Glass Company in South Boston.

Crystal by Pairpoint is a small retail store and glass factory located in Sandwich on historic route 6A, one of the main roads on Cape Cod. This place is a true gem! One side of the store has a glass window along the wall where you can watch the master glass blowers at their craft. There is a video showing the steps involved in glass blowing and the store attendant was happy to point out where each step was taking place right there in the shop. It is nothing short of magic seeing the molten glass on the shafts as it emerges from the ovens and is formed, shaped, cut and pressed by the glass blowers. After watching the process, it is fun to see the finished glass products available to buy in the store. The selection of glassware is huge and there are lovely souvenir items here. Highly recommend this to Cape visitors!

A local person recommended that we stop. Absolutely beautiful glass items for sale and watching the artists make them was fascinating. Witch Balls are gorgeous. Staff was friendly and helpful.
