Say Goodbye to the Shopping Cart

No Cart image

After careful deliberation, we’ve decided to retire the shopping cart function on our website. We wanted to add it as a convenience for our customers and try to provide some methods for tracking your orders.

However, the maintenance of the cart itself has proved to be a challenge and—weighed against some of the confusion it was causing—the decision to move on and revert to our older model seemed to be in order. Amazon and Etsy can have their carts… For our product line, a phone call is simpler and gets the job done just fine.

A Family Tradition

Gibson Pewter was founded in 1966 by Raymond Gibson and run as a seasonal family “cottage” business in the picturesque, and historic hilltop village of Hillsborough Center, New Hampshire for more than 20 years.

Today, second-generation pewterer, Jonathan Gibson—along with his wife and two daughters—carries on the craft year-round in the same 200 year old barn where he apprenticed as a young boy. Jon is a state juried member of the League of N.H. Craftsmen and has been recognized by Early American Life Magazine as one of Americas 200 top traditional craftsmen since 1992.

New Shop Fundraiser

Dear Friends of Gibson Pewter

Camille and I have been searching carefully for several years for a new home for our small family business, Gibson pewter.

The stars finally aligned for Camille and me this year. We listed our home for sale in March and by the end of May we closed the sale and bought a beautiful historic house and barn in Washington, NH, next to the old Town Common.

Our primary mission for moving is straight forward. We want to build a bigger and better pewter shop which will enable us to better educate the public about the history of one of America’s earliest and most important crafts, pewtering.

Currently, there is no place in America where one can visit and see the three principal historic methods of pewter production which are casting, metal spinning and hammering. Our goal is to create a pewter shop which functions like a working museum. Someday, we’d even like to teach pewtering classes!

Jon Gibson and Gibson Pewter are featured in the current issue of Yankee Magazine (March/April 2011) in an article titled “The New New England Heirlooms.” The article features a number of talented New England craftspeople creating timeless pieces to share across generations.

Of the seven artisans covered in the article, Jon is the sole representative of New Hampshire and the only metal-smith. Besides looking at the artists creations, the article asks about their inspiration and their own prized heirloms.
