About The Cottage

Welcome to Auntie M's American Cottage!  We hope you will come to visit us at 330 Water Street at Riverwalk Landing in Historic Yorktown, where you'll find a rich array of handcrafted work all made in the USA.  Come experience the allure of finding original and one-of-a-kind handcrafted work. We have something for everyone with new pieces added to our collection every day!

While striving to steward the earth, you'll find that many of our artists' work has been made by remixing, rethinking, recreating, repurposing and recycling goods in artful ways. 

Want to try your hand at a little creativity?  We offer workshops year-round on just about any artful project you might want to try.  Let us know what you or your group would like to learn and we'll add it to our schedule.


Workshops with the Artists

Group Fun

We offer a large area devoted to creative workshops.  Let us customize a fun event for you, featuring a wide variety of artful creations from various media.  Located on the beautiful Historic Yorktown waterfront, with shopping, gourmet restaurants, museums, art galleries, and comfortable lodging all within walking distance, we could be your perfect vacation destination.  Groups welcome!


You can design your own recycled wool flower pin to make in the store or take with you. You select your petals, button and thread color, and we provide printed instructions, needle and pin back. Just pull up a chair and start creating!
