Here is what some of our trade customers think of us.
"These lovely hand-made pewter pieces are perfect for our counter & till area. The prices are affordable but they are nice enough to keep. We have been displaying them for over 6 years & they still sell strongly thanks to new & innovative designs which continually keep the range fresh & appealing."
- Deborah Fox, Fisherton Mill, Salisbury
"Glover and Smith have been an important part of our business since we opened in 2005. I love the fact that they are always innovating, always offering something new to keep the collection fresh, and that in turn keeps our regular customers coming back for more. The products are adorable, usable and great gifts, and they are always of consistent quality. Please don’t buy anything from them, we just want it all for us! "
- Anna Brook, Director, Iapetus Gallery
I have been buying Glover & Smith's handmade pewter cutlery and accessories since my shop opened in early 2005. I have a gift shop in Cowes, Isle of Wight, which specialises in high quality goods sourced from small and independent workshops.
My customers love the Glover and Smith range because they are beautiful, unusual and competitively priced. Nowadays people are especially appreciative of the goods having been made in a small workshop and I always make a point of telling my customers this.
Ed and Judith are very pleasant to deal with and orders are always correct and delivered promptly. And finally, they are a creative pair with new designs appearing regularly to keep the customers (and shopkeepers!) happy.

"Thank you for all the lovely supplies which have always sold like hot cakes and given a lot of pleasure to a lot of people." - Quote from a letter from a retail customer who is shortly retiring - Madeline Hazeldean, The Craft Shop, Cranborne, Kent
"I just thought I’d let you know that the new Salisbury Cathedral consecration cross box and spoon have been very well received and I now need to order some more. The Dean has bought several to give as presents (including a set for the Archbishop of Canterbury) so she is very happy with them. Therefore I need to order some more, please. I have attached an order including a few other bits and pieces."
- Helen, Salisbury Cathedral Enterprises Ltd.
"My order arrived safely today and I would like to thank you all for the really lovely and well made items. I will certainly buy items from you again in the future."
