After several years and much consideration, we have decided it is time to raise our prices, across the board. The increases reflect the rise in prices of all of our materials. We can no longer absorb these additional costs without factoring them into the prices of the finished products. We regret the changes, but we hope our customers will understand our need to turn a profit for all the materials and labor that go into our handcrafted wares. Some prices  may reflect as well the stress on our bodies involved in forming and assembling the items.

of our tent at reenactments.


Carl Giordano - Tinsmith is honored to have been selected for Early American Life Magazine's "Directory of Traditional American Crafts"

every year since 1996.

WE are Carl and Marcia Giordano a husband-wife team of craftsmen dedicated to keeping alive the centuries-old art of tinsmithing.  

Every piece we produce is personally handcrafted by the two of us in our Ohio tinshop using tools and techniques in the tradition of  18th & 19th century tinsmiths.
