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... More

I own lots of the earrings and necklaces and always get compliments on them. I also started my collection of the Christmas tree ornaments which are special each year. I purchased one of the baby cups and had it engraved and gave it as a gift. Just love everything there.

You can go to the shop on Main St, but I prefer the factory shop just down the road. Wonderful ornaments are an easy annual Christmas tradition, gorgeous jewelry, and timeless baby items and lanterns.

Pretty little shop, lots of great products to choose from whether you are looking for dining room pieces, great ornaments to give as gifts, even a fabulous selection of buttons to jazz up your sweater or coat. Really interesting to watch the craftsmen work, as there are so few pewter makers anymore. I had been to the Shirley Pewter location... More

The visible workshop was fascinating; can watch all the processes that make the products. The shop is beautifully laid out, with gifts at most price points, and helpful staff. And the restrooms are clean!

Nice shop and a great way to understand how the pewter items are crafted. We visited on a Saturday, the one employee in the showroom was very cordial and gracious. The building is a showroom, with an alcove devoted to Whistlepig Rye Whiskey, the back part of the area is a working operation that creates various pewter items, with displays... More

The Danforth Pewter factory in Middlebury has almost the entire work floor surrounded in glass so visitors can watch the beautiful pieces being made. The visitors store has a wonderful collection of work. Worth a visit when you are in town.

The pewter pieces in this store were gorgeous and ranged from one of a kind to typical pewter pieces. The pricing of items could fit any budget. The quality of the workmanship was amazing! They ship and the shipping was not unreasonable and our gifts got to our friends before we got home from our trip. The employees were friendly... More
