Many of you have emailed me asking when I would have more pewter for my store. I went shopping the other day and bought some. My favorite piece was this early pewter sander.

Sanders were used in the 18th century to hasten the drying of ink. After writing, sick a sander was used to sprinkle sand onto the paper to absorb the ink. I remember seeing this done in a movie. It might have been a Jane Austin movie, but I am not sure. I also have a nice early pewter plate and a pitcher with initials on the front.

Pewter looks gorgeous with Christmas greens and red berries. Nothing looks more colonial around the holidays. If you have any interest in any of the pieces, please feel free to email me. They will be in the store as soon as my webmaster gets to it. I have a lot of new things coming, so be sure to take a look in the next few days. Love these old ice skates. They still have their original leather strap for carrying them. They will be in the store too. I have some photos I want to show you. Pictures I took while in Salem, N.J. and Mullica Hill, but I’ll save that for next time.
