Had a wonderful visit - very informative and friendly. Staff were available but not overbearing. Lots of selection and it was great to see how the pieces were made. Absolutely loved Mahone Bay - definitely would go back!

I wandered in and watched the artisan crafting pewter. They have a great selection of items and signs that explains the crafting process.

I love this shop where you can see how the pewter is made. There are so many beautiful things here - something for everyone you know whether you want something useful or just decorative it's worth going to see!

They make their pewter objects on site. You can watch them and they will show how they make it and explain the process to you. Escaped for less then $100 but could have easily spent more on their wonderful products.

The shop itself has an amazing range of pewter gifts both useful and decorative but the big draw is the production process is right there in the shop. It is fascinating to watch pewter go from ingot to finished product.
