We bought a pair of very cool heavy glass candlesticks. Got a vets discount to boot! We need to come back and sign up for making Christmas ornaments. Everything here was special and very fair prices.

My family and I were lucky enough to catch a presentation by Katherine (KA on her work). She made a gorgeous vase right in front of our eyes. She and here mom/assistant were super gracious and answered all our questions. It was even educational for the kids. We learned about what metals make which color glass and about the effect... More

We love this place. The glass pumpkins are superb. Have many glasses and the beer glasses are a piece of art. Got the Beacon Sloop club glass when they had Sloop brewery as a fund raiser. Made my own ornament here.

Renovated building with gorgeous staircase. Artisan hand blown glass with something for everyone. Beacon has many shops but this one is very unusual.

Been returning for years to acquire art and gift opportunities each holiday season. Modest prices allow for multiple purchases which group to create a personal collage of color, warmth, sparkle and form Housed in a repurposed 19th Century brick building on Main Street, you'll also find jewelry and other gift items.

Had limited time to visit Beacon's quaint downtown, but made a stop at the store. Glass blowing ended just before I got there at 5p. Chose two unique beach glass and pearl necklaces I considered reasonably priced. Many other items I'd love to take home with me on the plane.

Centrally located on Main Street in the cute gentrified town of Beacon this place has great glass objects and jewelry. We were disappointed that they have discontinued blowing glass there. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. A great place to buy American made gifts.

What a great enterprise. It's a combo of sales of beautiful functional items, tiny glass animals and people blowing glass in the workshop next to the showroom.
