Pewter Shop

The Pewter Shop was established in 1935 by Lewis Whitney and his wife Blanche. Their plan was to produce fine hand crafted products in pewter and other metals to be offered in their shop in the growing arts community on Bearskin Neck.

We shopped here to develop a chess set using just Star Wars characters. We at the Seafarer Inn love to look around this shop and pick something up for the kids.
