This shop has so many interesting handmade and unique art objects for your home that are made in the USA. It's definitely worth the walk down from the historic homes on Main Street. You never know what interesting treasure you may find!

I had wanted to stop in at Auntie M's after the TripAdvisor reviews I had read and I'm so glad that I did. It's really one of the only retail storefronts in Yorktown. It's hard to know where to look--the whole store is jam packed...More
