Wonderful Gift Shop!
Apr 2016 • Business
I love the Cottage Gift Shop for my own personal shopping and also for my business shopping. I am a real estate agent and I find the Cottage Gift Shop the perfect place to purchase a thank you gift for my clients when closing time comes around. There is a large variety of gifts to choose from and the owner is always very helpful and friendly. I never leave with an empty bag or without a smile on my face.

Thank you Sue for taking the time from your busy schedule to tell everyone about our little gift shop. It is always a pleasure when you come into the shop and it usually means that we have a new neighbor here in the Elmira/Corning/Horseheads area who just purchased a home. Here at the Cottage Gift Shop we offer a wide variety of gifts and home decor including country furniture, quilts, candles, signs, dolls, collectible figurines from Jim Shore and Williraye Studio, Willow Tree angels, and our very popular canvas prints by the talented artist Billy Jacobs. Whether you are looking for something special for your own home or a gift for a friend, we probably have it here at the Cottage Gift Shop.

Thank you Lisa for using TripAdvisor to find our shop and for leaving such a nice review. It was very nice to meet you and Judy last week. As you mention, here at the Cottage Gift Shop we have a large selection of canvas prints from the talented artist Billy Jacobs. We also offer his signed and numbered limited edition framed prints "A Starry Night" and "Whiter than Snow". Plus we have a nice selection of Billy Jacobs' acrylic on wood original paintings. If you are a fan and collector of Billy Jacobs' art, then the Cottage Gift Shop is the destination that you are looking for.

The cutest, quaintest, and homey gift shop around
Feb 2016 • Couples
My wife and I were on a business trip together and during our downtime we decided to visit this hidden gem. It was the highlight of our time in Elmira. The shop is densely decorated and stocked. Everything there was high quality and fair prices! Even if your are just going to look around there is enough interesting things packed into the shop to keep you busy for a while.

Also, the owner is the nicest and most hospitable small business owner I've encountered in a long time!!!!!

If you are in Elmira this is a must stop destination!

Thank you Alex for sharing your experience of visiting our shop. It was a real pleasure to meet you and your wife Julia. We may just be a small shop but we offer a large variety of handmade items from artisans both locally and across America including quilts, dolls, furniture and candles. We also have a nice selection of collectibles from Williraye Studio, Jim Shore and Willow Tree. And we have the best selection of Billy Jacobs canvas prints in the Twin Tiers. I hope that the next time that you get down this way from Rochester that you stop in for another visit to the Cottage Gift Shop.

A Fun Little Find
Apr 2014 • Couples
Don't blink; you'll miss it! Despite its diminutive size, The Cottage Gift Shop is one of those rare finds; a cute shop where you're likely to find something fun and unique. Their selection of handmade local soaps is fantastic, and for a shop with such a small footprint, you'll always be able to find something for anyone on your shopping list (including yourself). Definitely worth seeking out when you're in the area.

Thank you for your review. We are always pleased to hear what our guests like about our little cottage. The creative husband and wife team of Jeff Schuknecht and Bobbe Punzel-Schuknecht, better know as WIlliraye Studio, has created many wonderful and whimsical figurines throughout the years. We carry the largest selection of these desired collectibles in the Southern Finger Lakes of New York State. We recently began carrying the locally-produced Chef Lerman's sauces and dressings and these have quickly become our number one selling gourmet food product line. We are glad that you enjoyed his Cuke-A-Dilly Sauce and Salad Dressing. We have personally tried all of his products and find them all to be quite delicious.

Thank you for your kind words. We believe that Corning Wax Works candles are the finest jar candles that you will ever buy. The scents are amazing and they burn slowly and evenly. We hope that the next time you need a candle for a gift or for your home that you will come visit us.
