Our Beginnings

Old Town Imports started in the late 1990s out of a desire to bring family and friends together. After more than 10 years, the small family-owned business expanded into large retailers and opened a warehouse outlet store. In 2015 the family owned business moved to an annual presale online model and was later sold in 2022.

Now in 2023, under new ownership, the company remains true to its roots as a small family owned business, bringing the warmth and uniqueness of handcrafted décor and dinnerware that we have personally enjoyed for years. The core of the company is, and will continue to be, family. 

The inspiration for selling pewter stems from a deep affection my grandmother had for this timeless material. She discovered unique pewter pieces and adorned her home with serveware that has stood the test of time.  My mother carried forward this tradition, and I fondly remember family dinners where we clinked our pewter goblets, creating cherished memories.

Now our young family has continued the tradition -- hosting gatherings with friends and family – first from a small New York apartment as newlyweds to now in the Texan Hill Country with our sons. We are thrilled to share a little piece of our family with yours. 

In weaving our family legacy into our business, we've chosen to honor our roots by naming some of our products after family members and the streets we once called home. This personal touch not only connects us with our heritage but also infuses each piece with a story, making them more than just items; they're heirlooms carrying the warmth and love of family.
