Amazing store!
Oct. 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed browsing in this unique Mahone Bay shop. One of the staff demonstrated how some of their pewter items are made ... fascinating! Be sure to stop in if you're in the area - they have quite a variety of gift ideas.

Take Home a Local Craft
Aug. 2019
Visit this pewter workshop where staff are quite happy to show you the moulds, liquid pewter, and how their beautiful creations are made. Most interesting is how fast the liquid pewter cools – almost instantaneously! The area in which the process is displayed is very safe, with plexiglass partitions so that you can see the process clearly, but completely out of harms way, even for children. The showroom is very spacious with all the finished products displayed in a pleasing manner. Prices are fairly reasonable. Take home a lovely handmade craft from beautiful Mahone Bay.

Beautiful work, wonderful service, great to see it being made
Sep. 2019
We have been visiting Amos Pewter and buying their products for many years but never tire during our infrequent visits of watching the craftsfolk at work right in the store.
This visit my wife was wearing some of their jewelry and had a broken necklace with her.
Not only did they repair the necklace and replace the alligator clip at no charge, but they also cleaned and buffed what she was wearing...all at not cost.
Customer service at its finest!

Wonderful service
Sep. 2019 • Friends
I first visited 3 years ago, and it was so good to see nothing had changed. Wonderful gorgeous pieces, such quality, and excellent service. A big thank you to Carol (Karen?) who even helped replace a lost earring, and polished up my old one. Do NOT miss this place.

Birthday Present
Aug. 2019
I took my wife here to pick out some nice things as present for her birthday. The sales staff are excellent. We even took in a demonstration on how all of these intricate pieces are fashioned. Her final choice of earrings and a necklace are pictured below.

Beautiful shop, quality products
Aug. 2019 • Family
Went into the shop with the intention of buying my mother a birthday gift. Was blown away by the quality of the products and the diversity of designs. My four year old was thoroughly entertained by the workshop in the back which demonstrated how they made the various items in the store. Proves we’re very reasonable! Will be ordering more online in the future

Glad we stopped at Amos Pewter!
Jul. 2019
It was very hot the day we stopped here and the air conditioned space was appreciated! There is a shop with lots of pewter pieces for sale and also a mini museum about pewter with free demonstrations given on how pewter is used. Very informative!
