"The Sparrow Store has sold Danforth for the four years we have been open. Our most popular items are the oil lamps. They get a lot of attention because of their beauty and perfection. We have never had a complaint about them but we have had customers come back to buy a second lamp. We love Danforth and are proud to carry them in our store!" - Nancy Fleming, The Sparrow Store
"Working with Danforth Pewter and my rep Jen has been a great experience! We're a new customer, and they have been extremely helpful every step of the way.

We look forward to working with them in the future!" - Ryan Gravell, Retail Coordinator, Frank Lloyd Wright's Graycliff Estate
“We are a new wholesale customer with Danforth Pewter. They were great to work with. They set up our account & shipped very quickly. Their “Engravable Pewter Nameplate” has helped us to establish a new product line of Pet Urns which have been very well received.” - Richard Gonzales, Vice President, Conversation Concepts Inc.
“Back in 1985, while pregnant with my second child I started my knitting business. I already knew about Danforth Pewter buttons because a local gift shop sold them four to a card. I had used them a few times for gift sweaters. When it came time to make up samples of my designs I called Danforth and asked if I could purchase a few to show on my cardigans. One thing led to another, my first account was Henri Bendel in New York, from there my business grew and eventually I became famous for the "pewter button cardigans," which are sold in lovely children's boutiques from San Franciso to Long Island. My son turned 30 this year, and I am still ordering Danforth Pewter buttons every few weeks, as I have done for three decades. Customer service is always outstanding, the products are absolutely perfect and I am a very happy customer.” - Kim Rice, Hearthside Handworks
"The Vermont Flannel Company always looks forward to receiving in our Danforth order. The jewelry is elegant, strong, and artistic. Not only does the jewelry look beautiful with every outfit, but it is also durable to wear at every outing." - Kendall, The Vermont Flannel Company
"As a retailer, I love carrying Danforth Pewter in our stores, the small footprint it takes with in the store has many turns through out the year, making it a smart profitable choice from this buyers perspective. The quality of the merchandise is top notch, and the selection offers something for our entire customer base. Our Danforth display of sells itself, but when given the opportunity it's enjoyable to discuss the Danforth company and their products. Danforth Pewter's customer service is quick to respond to questions and easy to work with. Sales representatives are knowledgeable and enjoyable to work with. I choose to offer Danforth Pewter to my customers because they offer heirloom quality, creative product, that appeals to a wide range of customers. " - Colleen Shipman, General Manager & Buyer,Phoenix Books
"I am thrilled to have Danforth in our shop! We are an equine themed gift shop in a horse racing town and recently brought in the Netsuke animals, frames, keyrings and scatter pins. The staff at Danforth made the initial ordering process a breeze and we received our shipment quickly and efficiently. We just recently reordered with the same flawless customer service! We love that the products are made in the USA and more specifically, in our own backyard. The quality and selection fit right in with our niche and the company staff clearly customer service oriented!." - Marianne M. Barker, Pres., Impressions of Saratoga
"After more than five years it continues to be a pleasure selling Danforth products from our all American retail shop. Their customer service is excellent, the staff knowledgeable, their products are unique and very functional. Danforth’s quality control is unsurpassed. During one of our first Christmas seasons one of our very good customers wanted to purchase several oil lamps as Christmas gifts which we did not have in stock. It was a few days until Christmas. I phoned in our order and was told Danforth would do their best and they did. Thirteen oil lamps arrived in time for Christmas, and we were told later Fred Danforth came in early to work on our order. All vendors should be this good." - Gary Conklin, Proprietor, Conklin’s Maine Mercantile
