About Beverly Bremer Silver Shop

Our Story

Beverly Bremer Silver Shop

Beverly Bremer Silver Shop has been an Atlanta, Georgia-based business for over 40 years. The shop now boasts an international clientele but is still operated out of the same store on Peachtree Road. We are a Buckhead landmark! Couples, wives, husbands, mothers and daughters alike frequent our shop looking for that perfect gift, pattern, or personal treat in sterling silver.

A maverick in the secondhand fine silver business, Beverly Bremer began in 1975 with nothing more than her own two sets of sterling and a need for cash to support her three children. She opened her own booth in the Lindbergh Flea Market where she traded and bought more sterling, naming her stand the “Collector's Corner”. In the early days, customers’ pattern information was kept on 3x5 index cards. When the price of silver soared later that decade, her Corner did as well—and the rest is history.

Today, Beverly’s daughter Mimi and her loyal staff continue the tradition of outstanding customer service, bringing over 150 years combined experience in estate and new sterling silver flatware and hollowware. We pride ourselves on being “the place to find the hard-to-find” in sterling silver.

Our entire fine sterling silver inventory hails directly from manufacturers, other dealers, and individuals, and each piece is hand-inspected before it is entered into our extensive inventory.

In recent years, many department stores chose to discontinue selling sterling. We bought up much of that inventory so that we could continue to offer an even more extensive collection of patterns. We are one of the premier retailers in the country for fine sterling, and thanks to the Internet our clientele is worldwide.

If you ever receive a piece of sterling from us that is less than extraordinary, we guarantee a full refund or replacement.

Mimi Bremer Woodruff

Mimi Bremer Woodruff is a native Atlantan and a graduate of The Westminster Schools. After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in French from Vanderbilt University, she became a Wattles Fellow at Lloyd’s of London. Mimi studied 19th and 20th century decorative arts at Sotheby’s in London before returning to Atlanta in 1986 to join her mother Beverly in running her eponymous family business, Beverly Bremer Silver Shop. She now heads the business, which is still run out of the flagship store on Peachtree Road.

When Mimi is not in the shop you will find her gardening, entertaining at home, hiking in the North Carolina mountains or spending time with her family.

Mimi’s Sterling Silver Pattern:

Mimi’s silver pattern is English King by Tiffany & Co. She also collects antique sterling barware and baby cups and has new and estate serving pieces in a wide variety of patterns.

Mimi’s Sterling Silver Dream Piece:

Mimi’s dream piece is a storied sterling silver three-handled presentation cup made by the Gorham Manufacturing Company, circa 1900. It features acanthus leaves, grapevines, blossoms, shells and fruiting, after the Rococo Revival style. The cup is engraved "Presented to CHAS. H. STODDART by his friends of the advertising fraternity upon his twenty-fifth anniversary as an active member. September twenty-seventh Nineteen hundred”.

Trenton Tunnell III

Trenton has worked at Beverly Bremer Silver Shop since 1988. He combines a passion for fine silver with a commitment to exemplary customer service. He began his retail career with Tiffany & Co. in Atlanta. At Tiffany’s he furthered his interest in silver and was fortunate to visit the (now closed) Tiffany factory in Newark, N.J. A native Atlantan, Trenton earned his Bachelor of Arts in history from Duke University. He continues to develop his knowledge of silver by visiting decorative art collections in the cities he visits. When not in the shop, Trenton has been a member of the Atlanta Opera Chorus for over twenty years and sings in his church choir.

Trenton’s Sterling Silver Dream Piece:

Trenton’s dream piece of silver is the Liberty & Co. sterling centerpiece bowl from Birmingham, England, circa 1900, designed by Oliver Baker, in the arts and crafts tradition. This piece is set with 27 semi-precious stones. Not only is this piece exquisite and unusual, Trenton appreciates the history on Oliver Baker (1856-1939): Baker was an English painter, designer and silversmith, and the son of the artist Samuel Henry Baker. He studied at the Birmingham School of Art and exhibited frequently at The Royal Academy in 1884. He was elected a member of The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.

Sara Noffel Summerour

Sara grew up in Cape Girardeau, Missouri and moved to Atlanta in 1988 after graduating from Southern Methodist University, where she studied Advertising and French. Beverly Bremer had just expanded the store and needed additional staff. After several months of interviews and calls, Beverly went out on a limb and hired the “Missoura” girl who knew nothing about sterling silver except for her parents’ pattern, Chantilly by The Gorham Manufacturing Company. In the fall of 1989, Sara began her life in silver as a member of the Beverly Bremer Silver Shop sales staff. She met her husband while working at the shop when he came in to purchase sterling goblets for his parents that Christmas! Sara left Beverly Bremer Inc. in 1994 to start her family and returned in 2003 to continue her sterling career. Though still much a part of the sales staff, Sara is also the buyer of estate goods and oversees the email communication with our customers.

Sara’s Sterling Silver Pattern:

Sara’s silver pattern is Federal Cotillion by Frank W. Smith Silver Co. Inc.

Sara’s Sterling Silver Dream Piece:

Sara loves coin silver because of the stories these older pieces tell. Her dream piece is an American coin silver three-piece tea service, maker's mark of William Gale and John Stickler, New York, circa 1819. She is especially enamored with the set’s engraving, which indicates that the service was descended in the same family circa 1819, 1853, and 1904.

Catharine is a native Atlantan. Prior to her long and successful career at Beverly Bremer Silver Shop, she was a personal shopper for Lord & Taylor.

“One thing is certain – the shop’s founder is like her own best merchandise: unique and malleable, an enduring symbol of both a forebear’s gift and a future bequest, its value and beauty only increasing with time.”

"A keeper of memories long after its owner has passed, silver is one of the last affordable precious metals currently valued at about 1/50th the price of gold by mass."
-Donna Brousseau, Flavors Magazine, review of Beverly Bremer Silver Shop
