Cottage Craft Works is a full line general store full of unique hard to find Amish products for the home, farm, and garden

Amish Made Products

Old-fashioned online General Store offers Amish-made products, handcrafted goods, and wares from over 100 Amish shops and factories across the USA.

Many know of the Amish for their beautiful handcrafted furniture, quilts, and wooden crafts.  What most don’t realize is that the Amish are still making the old vintage non-electric products and goods that were being used at the turn of the Century.

These old-time products are still available online at Cottage Craft Works .com an online general store filled with hard to find vintage products being made and used by the Amish.

From solid wood, Amish, handcrafted furniture, retro vintage kitchen wares, to Amish organically grown grains and flour you will find it in this refreshing trip back in time when quality USA made products were made to last a lifetime and beyond.

While many marvels over and collect these vintage antiques, the Amish are still hard at work in their small shops and factories continuing to make these old-time products to support their continued horse and buggy lifestyle.

As the country rebuilt from the Great Depression and electricity became readily available a great shift in the types of products in demand also began to occur.

The country moved forward but the Amish way of life stood fast.  The old-fashioned off-grid products the Amish so depended on to support them soon began to be no longer available.

The Amish are very industrious and great business minded people so many began to either make those products again from the patterns and molds being discarded or they contracted with companies to continue making them for just the Amish people.

Even the Janome sewing machine company makes a treadle sewing machine for the Amish communities.  It has crossed over to become popular with non-Amish women who claim that it is easier to control the speed than their electric sewing machines.

People living around or within driving distance to the main Amish communities in Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, have purchased Amish made products for years because of the quality and durability they offer.

It was not really until the Y2K that the buy Amish products phenomenon really began to materialize.  Before then it was simply buying American made to protest the massive loss of American jobs and the lacking quality of imported products.

The Y2K fear of losing grid power was a real concern of many who sought out the Amish off-gird products to prepare for possibly the worse.

Even though the clock struck midnight on the year 2000 and the world woke up just like another day, the discovery of just how well the Amish products worked brought on a new wave of people looking for the Amish American made products.

The reality of losing grid power for extended periods has materialized on smaller scales from more frequent catastrophic storms.  The threat of terrorism or an attack on our grid is still very real.

Adding into the blend to be less dependent on the grid and modern day products is a strong desire to escape the fast pace lifestyle and return to a simpler time.

Others looking to find safer food supplies are unearthing back yard lawns and turning them into vegetable gardens. They are finding the cheaply made imported garden tools are just not worthy of serious gardening to support a large family so they too are in search of American Amish made tools.

The proliferation of fast and prepared foods is taking a toll on our overall health. Cooking from scratch using all natural chemical free ingredients as the Amish still do is becoming very desirable making Amish made kitchen wares, products, and Amish organically grown foods also desirable.  Especially, when cooking for large families as the Amish do.

While most people won’t go back to the horse and buggy for transportation, do away with air conditioning, or even do away with television, the other aspects of living the simple life are gaining traction.

Most just want to once again have the opportunity to purchase an American made product that they can depend on for a lifetime as early generations were able to do.

The Stevens family founders of Cottage Craft Works searched long and hard for over 30 years to find quality Amish made products for their own use and now offer these hard to find oddities via their online general store at

Many of these Amish products are not available on the mainstream Internet or anywhere else. Cottage Craft Works has developed exclusive relationships with several Amish shop owners to supply unique products for them.

Products such as the folding Singer Featherweight reproduction card tables and J & P Coats thread spool cabinet were developed by Paul Stevens and then contracted with an Amish shop to build for just for Cottage Craft Works customers.

Discover Amish USA Made Products, Wares, Goods, Furniture

Handcrafted Amish products, wares, goods, furniture. American made products are very desirable, Amish American made products are in even higher demand.

Cottage Craft is one of the largest online retailers of Amish USA made products from over 100 Amish cottage based shops and factories.

Shopping the vast online store is like taking a trip back to the late 1800s and early 1900s in a time machine.  It was a time when America made products were made to last lifetimes and beyond to the next generations.

Serving the general public for over a decade Cottage Craft Works has developed a solid reputation of old-fashioned integrity and customer service.

The folks at Cottage Craft Works have explored the deep back roads of America in search of high-quality Amish made vintage products that are still being made and used just like they were before the country moved over to electricity in the most rural areas.

The results of their searches have assembled one of the most comprehensive Amish product listings on the Internet with many hard to find items not available anywhere else.

Products and gadgets are made from durable materials for hand power off-grid use and work with ease.  Handcrafted furniture is made from solid wood to become family heirlooms.  Planned obsolesces is never a consideration.

Products are simple, geared for common sense practical uses and not to simply mass produce as cheaply as possible to sell products to the masses.

Somehow the Amish never got caught in the middle of Americas move from a self-sufficient conservative stewardship of the environment to a prefoliation of cheaply made toxic imported products to fill landfills.

In the mid-1900s the Amish who were dependent on the same products used in an off-grid America soon discovered those products were fading as the rest of the country moved on to more modern times.

They began to transform their farming and woodworking skills into small metal working and machine shops to continue to make and supply those goods and wares to other Amish communities.

Many Americans who became fed up with wasting money and throwing out the cheaper made products turned to the Amish communities to continue to purchase the durable USA made products.

It was not until the Y-2K scare that the general public took stock in the dependency on the modern times in their everyday life.  Amish products became in high demand as people prepared to live off the grid as the clocks struck midnight and presumably the computer controlled world would cease to operate.

A phenomenon was discovered by many that some of those old-fashioned hand-operated gadgets were actually easier and quicker to use than their electrical cousins.

Although you can find much cheaper copycat products being imported they just don’t work as smoothly as the Amish made products. Just a simple imported egg beater can be very frustrating to use compared to the Amish made Country Egg Beater.

The same goes on down the line with cooking utensils to gardening tools.  Amish made products are just made to last and to serve large families.

Many women are going back to the treadle sewing machines used by the Amish as they feel they can better control the speed of the treadle sewing machines over the electric sewing machines.  The Janome 712T sewing machine was built for Amish families but surprisingly it is one of the most popular items order with a reproduction treadle sewing cabinet from Cottage Craft Works by non-Amish women.

As simplicity goes so does the practicality of routine household chores. The Amish don’t use dishwashers but still take care of mounds of dishes produced in a day by their large families.  Clothes dryers are not an appliance that you find in an Amish home.  So, the Amish rely on air drying of dishware and laundry using a variety of drying racks.

A large stainless steel kitchen sink drainboard is a very popular item at Cottage Craft Works as well as the many different folding wall and floor clothes drying racks.

Many order the Amish organically grown grains and stone ground flour.  Whole and sprouted spelt is some of the most popular grain products as well as the rolled oats.

It would take an entire website to discuss all the wonderful Amish products available so take a look yourself at


Garden, Yard Decor Buckboard Wagon, Wheelbarrow, Planters

American handcrafted decorative garden, yard décor buckboard wagon, wheelbarrow, goat wagon flower planters. Extordnairy craftsmanship attention to detail.

Bring home these nostalgic replicas of old-fashioned reproduction wagons, wheelbarrows, and carts to enhance home and garden decor. Beautifully handcrafted by Amish Craftsmen these wagons and carts are real head turners.

Products are available as rustic unfinished or as complete with stain and varnish for indoor or outdoor use.

Aside from using them as garden decor, they are perfect for living history and reenactment events.  They also make wonderful store merchandising displays.

Reminiscent of simpler times the original workhorse wagons were the main means of transportation hauling people, goods, and wares from the towns to the homesteads. Wagons and wheelbarrows were used to complete the many chores on a working farm or ranch.

They have just been scaled down a bit to fit within more modern day garden landscapes and decor. Use them as an accent or equip them with an optional planter box to grow flowers.

The buckboard wagon is one of the most recognized wagons ever made, equal to today’s pickup truck the buckboard wagon could be used to haul supplies in the back.  An extra seat(s) could be added for family Sunday trips to church and then on to a family picnic after church making them equivalent to the family station wagons or for the millennium generation minivan or SUV.

Buckboard LWheel 2buckboard4 (1)Goat-Wagon-stain (600 x 580)WB_metal_wheel2

Sized to fit any garden or yard landscape these cute wagons and barrows are so authentically made they actually can be used.  The larger sized buckboard and express wagon equipped with wheel bushings are being pulled behind small animals. Optional goat and pony shalves are available for the larger buckboard and express wagons.

Authentic Goat Wagons are reproductions of the goat wagons being imported from European countries. Some may call these pumpkin wagons.

These carts are still being used today in the old world and underdeveloped countries to carry homemade products and produce to market and then to return home with other supplies.

Goats and goat carts were more affordable and easier to maneuver on narrow mountainous passes versus the much more expensive and larger horse-drawn drawn wagons. Goat carts such as these are either pulled by hand or pulled with goats with the owner walking along the side.

Several movie companies have purchased the authentic wheelbarrows for movie sets and the peddler cart is being used in the mall shots on a long-running soap opera.

Peddler carts were used by street vendors to wheel out their wares and such other things as produce, and food.  The modern day newsstand and hotdog stands are a cousin to the old-fashioned peddler carts.

These type of reproduction peddler carts are still used in historic villages and malls as a kiosk or as merchandise display carts.


Finding antique wagons and barrows have become very difficult and the ones that are available are very expensive.  Fully intact antique wheelbarrows and wagons may be too expensive to use as garden decor.

The Amish have used original patterns to duplicate these wonderful works of art from the American and European heritages.  The Amish are very talented craftsmen using premium quality hardwoods to build heirloom furniture and other wooden functional crafts.

The Amish build items for the functionality and long-term viability rather than just to make a profit.  This is why Amish built furniture and other products are often referred to as heirloom quality.

Unlike cheaper imports, you won’t find butt joints and staples.  Instead, you will find old-fashioned tenon and mortise joinery.  The same used on the antique items that have lasted over 100 years.

With one of these new wheelbarrows side by side to an antique one, only the newer wood and hardware will distinguish old from new. Not only is the wood cut and shaped as the original the hand forged metal hardware is also made just like the originals.

The wheelbarrow sides are also removable so that they can be used to stack and haul such things as firewood, bricks, or sacks of grain and bales of hay to feed livestock.


Optional galvanized metal planter boxes are available for many of the wagons, wheelbarrows, goat and peddler carts.  These do have weep holes at the bottom so they are not considered water tight for indoor use.


Wagons and wheelbarrow are available in rustic unfinished or in various stain, painted or varnished finishes.  A premium wood option is also available primarily used for indoor display and furniture uses such as coffee and end tables or store merchandise display carts.

The rustic wood is actually smooth planed lumber but it may have some rough spots from blade chatter when it comes out of the planer.

Some of the products are offered with a metal wheel(s) with an option to upgrade to a wood spoke wheel(s).  Other items like the goat carts are available just with the wooden wheels.

Wooden wagon wheels have metal tire rims as standard quiet rubber tire wheels may be added as an option.  The rubber would be preferable for carts or wagons needing to be wheeled or used frequently on pavement or concrete such as in a store, mall or on a sidewalk or road.

Metal wheels may actually be better for ornamental garden and yard decor that will be used year-round in the elements. Stationary wood spoke wheels tend to rot out on the lower spokes after years of water running down into the attached wheel rims.

If they are sealed routinely and turned frequently the authentic wood spoke wheels will last longer.

Each wagon or wheelbarrow is custom made per order so you should expect 3-4 weeks for shipping. These cute wagons and wheelbarrow are very popular especially around spring fever time so you will want order early for spring decor.

You can order these wagons, carts, and wheelbarrows at Cottage Craft Works.

Made in America Products

No Comments

Old-fashioned vintage made in America products are still available as they were in yesteryears. USA quality and pride reminiscent of the early 50s and 60s.

Cottage Craft is like an old time general store packed full of old fashioned American made gadgets, tools, gear and supplies for the farm, home, garden, ranch, and hunting gear from a yesteryear simpler time period.

90% of the products are still made and used in the Amish communities. The significance is that the Amish make and use sustainable living products to last a lifetime. They care less about profits and more about durability and value making products that are functional and dependable for living off the grid.

The Amish are also very sustainable green earth friendly people who practice organic growing methods and the use of nontoxic components in the products they make.

10% of the products  at Cottage Craft Works are hand selected from small non-Amish businesses considered as cottage based meaning most of the owners still touch the products from the  conception to shipping.

These products are hard to find and gathered from the back roads through the Midwest where most of the Amish settlements are now into 3rd and 4th generation family businesses.

Amish are well known for their exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail, what many don’t know is that the Amish began to lose the availability of many of the products they depended on to live off the grid when electricity became readily available in the 1930s to rural America.  As more people bought electrified products manufacturers stop making the hand crank and human-powered gadgets.

Then in the late 1950s and early 1960s manufacturing began to move out of the US and into foreign hands.  As competition from discount stores exploded in the 1970s price drove quality down and although the products might look like the originals, they just didn’t perform as well. Later plastics began to drive production cost down even further making the imported products even less desirable to the Amish.

To fill the void the Amish began making their own products and selling them within the Amish communities.

These old fashioned American made products are now being highly sought after by the general public for several factors occurring in our country, the economy and around the world.

Sure, you can easily find Amish made quilts, wooden crafts, and other Amish novelties. Cottage Craft Works, on the other hand, has made it easy to find and purchase the really hard to find Amish gadgets and products.

Some of the most popular items sold through Cottage Craft Works:

Under the Home Goods tab, you will find solid hardwood custom sewing cabinets for both electric and treadle sewing machines. The folding drying racks, laundry tubs, and pulley clotheslines are also frequently purchased.  This is the tab where you will find oil lamps, butane irons, Amish toys and wagons, Amish furniture, and the famous Bachelor Ironing Board Chair.

Under the Farm & Garden tab, hand water well pumps are very popular followed by American-made garden tools, hand pushed garden cultivators, wooden spoke wagons, old-fashioned wheelbarrows,  hobby farm implements, authentic wagon seats, cider-wine presses,  roller egg nesting boxes, reel push mowers, purple martin housing and horse and tack products.

The Kitchen & Food Prep tab is probably the most visited section at Cottage Craft Works. This is where the old time kitchen gadgets, cooking utensils, drip coffee makers, hand crank appliances, mixers, food processors, dough makers, and ice cream makers can be found.

The Amish organically grown grains and stone ground flour just might be the best-kept secret.  The site features both whole and sprouted spelt products. The Amish pioneered non-GMO organic growing methods.  Some believe that Amish grain products reportedly provide better nutritional values over other organically grown grain products.

The USA made stoneware pottery is also very popular especially the blue stripe mixing bowls, crocks and water coolers that may all be ordered with custom colors and personalization. Cottage Craft Works is one of only a few offering a USA made lead and cadmium free water bottle dispensing crock.

The Hunting & Outdoors tab is a hunters and outdoorsman emporium. The Amish handcrafted hunting and game calls is what really started the Cottage Craft Works business.  These beautiful calls are hand tuned to work as well as they look.  They have also become very popular gift items with the available personalization engravings. Many new families have begun at the altar with these calls being given as groomsmen gifts and even bridesmaid gifts. Even a few have used an engraved call as a wedding proposal.

The replacement gun stocks and handcrafted leather and nylon holsters are also very popular.  The Amish crafted wood and glass gun display case is of museum quality. Hard to find gun stocks are available for most of the older model rifles and shotguns even back into the late 1800s.

The American made hunting outerwear and hunting gear is very much reminiscence of the quality found in the early 60s. Hunting coats and bibs are made from the same materials that the legendary Wick Outdoor Works Company once used.

Amish scooter bikes are also very popular for all ages.  The scooters are half bike and half scooter providing a low to the ground foot board for propelling forward using one foot to push and kick back. They provide an amazing workout and are easily ridden by even those unable to ride a standard bicycle any longer.

Amish made Stutzie crank baits may also be a best-kept secret. These baits have been around for a long time but haven’t been widely promoted and marketed by professional syndicated sponsors so, the general public has never heard of them. Truth be told many of the professional anglers have them tucked away in the tackle box because they know when nothing else is working the Stutzie will bring them in.
