This store has been a Williamsburg tradition for fifty years. In the heart of Colonial Williamsburg, it started life as the Shirley Pewter Shop in 1964. After a complete renovation in 2013, it became Danforth Pewter. We make every piece of Danforth pewter, including the Shirley Collection, by hand in our Vermont workshop, carrying the store’s heritage of handcrafting American pewter into the 21st century. The store features a history wall highlighting Danforth’s colonial roots and Shirley’s legacy from the earliest days of Colonial Williamsburg, as well as a display showing how pewter is crafted and a video of our workshop.
