Hidden gem - fab fab fab!
Dec 2019
This is a workshop, a store, an education, a museum and a relaxing visit all rolled up into one spot. Great people. Amazing workmanship. Beautiful items - many very affordable. Fun gifts for any occasion and also fun to just browse. Well worth a stop!

Beautiful Craftsmanship
Oct 2019
Danforth Pewter is one of Vermont's greatest venues for American craftsmanship. The Danforth family began making pewter in New England in the 18th Century. As local residents, we have been taking guests there for years, and they all love it. Large windows at the back of the showroom allow you to watch the beautiful pewter products being made. The objects they create--jewelry, kitchen wares, candlesticks, Christmas ornaments, buttons, and many more--come in tasteful, timeless designs that they develop themselves. It is a wonderful place to buy wedding presents. We feel so lucky to live nearby. Well worth a visit.

Beware the lunch break!
Jul 2019 • Family
Unfortunately we made it here during the lunch break and didn't get to see much in action, but the cashier was nice enough to give us an impromptu tour and lesson. We were grateful. Amazing craftsmanship in display. Pricey!

Don't mix this up with the retail Danforth store in downtown Middlebury!

Pewter- who knew?
Apr 2019 • Friends
I've been meaning to go to this place for a long time. The employees were friendly and informative. I never knew there was so much to know about pewter. It is essentially a factory store with historical displays.

Danforth Pewter has long been a favorite in our family. We were finally able to make it to this tour and are so glad that we did! We ended up with a private tour of a fascinating process. Definitely worth the trip!

Exceptionally beautiful handcrafted metal work
Oct 2018 • Friends
This was the first time I was at the Middlebury store, I had previously been in the one in Williamsburg. The clerk was very well informed about the various pieces. she was very helpful in choosing the appropriate gift for a friend. The workmanship of the various vases, earrings, and every other piece it's amazing. If you enjoy handmade items and want to support local artisans this is the place to go. I highly recommend it for gift-giving as well as for personal enhancement for your home.

Unique and quality keepsakes
Jun 2018 • Friends
We've been getting yearly Christmas ornaments from Danforth for 16 years now and love visiting their local store. If you can't find the perfect gift for an occasion, ask them for help. They can take most items and personalize them or make keychains into ornaments, or visa versa, ect. Bottom line, these are handmade gifts that will last a lifetime.

Handcrafting beautiful pewter pieces right before your eyes!
May 2018 • Business
Traveling with a bus group, we were friendly greeted and given a personalized presentation on the history and handcrafting of pewter. It was so interesting and the large windows offered an up-close view of the main pewter crafting processes. Fun and very informative.
The big gift shop offered a nice variety of the beautiful pewter pieces. Some of them were one of a kind.
Men loved viewing the manufacturing process while the women loved the gift shops.
Nice clean restrooms, too!
A fun stop on our tour.

Danforth Peter has an array of beautifully handcrafted pewter items for everyone! I love their jewelry designs especially the Layla wire earrings! It's my favorite and I wear them nearly every day and get many compliments on them. For $32 it is worth the investment. Go for it and indulge yourself with a beautiful pair of earrings from Danforth pewter today!
