Reed & Barton Factory Store
200 West Britannia St. Taunton; (508) 824-0289
Reed & Barton has been manufacturing silverware in this exact spot in Taunton (a.k.a. the Silver City) since 1824. Which is quite lucky for people in Boston and beyond, because the factory store sells first-quality, seconds, and discontinued items at ridiculously discounted prices. A five-piece setting of sterling silver, which retails for $315, was seen here for $185. Sterling silver serving pieces (say that three times fast), were reduced from $85 to just $29.95 per piece.
If sterling is a little rich for your blood, there’s always silver plated. A five-piece setting was $50, down from $72.50. R & B also makes your everyday stainless, usually found in 40-piece settings for eight people, or 60-piece sets for twelve. Save as much as $50 a set, and more.
There’s something in every price range, with a vast selection of patterns. And Mr. C hasn’t even gotten to the seconds and discontinued styles from other manufacturers!
Also, though the discounts are not quite as deep, you’ll still find substantial savings on things like Disney gift-ware by Schmid, lead crystal vases, Irish china and crystal gifts, and more. Open Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 6 P.M.
