Beautiful Pewter

Really enjoyed learning about how pewter jewelry is made. Staff were very friendly, prices were quite reasonable. Would definitely recommend a stop if passing through Mahone Bay.

We received a three branch candelabra as a wedding gift from my brother & sister-in-law. 1 branch broke off. We contacted Amos to ask whom they might refer us to, here in Vancouver. They stoid behind their product by 1) sending us a pre-paid label to return it to them, 2) repaired it so it looks like new, (3) sent... More

I was so impressed with the beautiful work at Amos Pewter. I don't as a rule care that much for pewter, but Amos could very easily make me a fan. The detail of the work is amazing, and they have so many beautiful designs. Everything from delicate jewelry to exquisite Christmas ornaments, and lots of other items in between, make... More

The ladies in our group enjoyed this store so much that they went back an hour later to shop some more. The pewter selections are many and varied and all beautiful. Just remember to put your pewter cheese knives in your suitcase and not your carry on bag or you may not get past security at the airport!

Amos Pewter is sold in any number of places, but if you'd like to see how it's made and talk with the artisans, then the Mahone Bay shop is the place to go. We really enjoyed the demonstrations, and because the shop wasn't very busy, the artisans had time to answer questions and give us a greater appreciation of the... More
