So great! This shop is very near the new Revolutionary War Museum with the 4d movie, working colonial farm and more. The cooler weather made it comfortable to actually walk around the entire historical area and visit the charming shops.

Auntie M's and a gift shop in Homer, Alaska are tied for my favorites. Auntie M's has the advantage of being located in a much kinder climate. From handmade children's clothing to nativity sets to refrigerator magnets, everything appeared to be top quality and artfully...More

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
