My wife and I were there in November 2015 while I attended a conference in SD. Wonderful things. Large and small. Fabulous visit. They do wrap up to ship, but don't appear to sell on the Internet. Bummer for out-of-towners.

I love the ornaments they make. They are a great stocking stuffer and gifts for a large staff without breaking the bank.

It's a pricy shop, so the groupon really was a motivator to go in there.

Tinsmith has beautiful products. The sales lady was friendly and helpful. I don't live in San Diego, but bought the Groupon in anticipation of a planned trip. Without the Groupon, I may have bought a smaller tin star, but having already purchased the Groupon, I was able to afford a larger one. However, without the Groupon, I doubt I would've visited Old Town and Tinsmith.

After I purchased my item, I noticed it had a defect. When I went to return or exchange the item, I was told that it was beyond 2 weeks and thus nothing could be done. I asked where this policy was stated. It wasn't stated anywhere. According to the staff, it was just understood since the store was located in a tourist area, and it was assumed all of their customers were tourists. Being a local, I was rather annoyed by this "understood" policy and was told too bad. The manager later called me back to agree to my return, but the Groupon complicated the transaction, and I was told that was my problem to deal with.

Purchased some lovely Christmas gifts there. The clerk was very helpful, and wrapped each of twelve items individually.
