Discounts:

The following companies are extending discounts to card carrying members of our organization.
You will need to ask for their Guild of Metalsmiths discount.
These discounts are a gift to us and can be taken away if they are abused. If you have a hobby shop, no problem. If you are a professional with a few employees, no problem. What is not fair, is turning yourself into a dealership by reselling/trading products that you have purchased with our discount, or being a big company and using our discount for your bottom line. Please don’t ruin this for everyone. These businesses deserve our recognition and patronage:
