Metal Restoration & Buy Back

August 14 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Have your damaged sterling silver, silver plate, pewter, brass, copper, bronze and gold treasures restored to their former beauty. Our visiting metalsmith, Rita Robbens, can also repair and restore spelter, zinc, and nickel. 

Give family heirlooms new life. Turn flea market finds into treasure. Welcome a new baby with a restored and polished baby cup once used by a grandparent. Surprise Mom by restoring her silver tea set.  

Chances are, if you have a damaged or worn metal piece, Rita Robbens can repair and restore it. Her career in metalsmithing began with several years as an apprentice to a Master Silversmith. She now has over 30 years of experience and a workshop with state-of-the-art equipment, much of it custom and hand-crafted. Once she assesses your project, she'll provide a free estimate of the restoration.
