Cornerstone Cottage

Cornerstone Cottage is a fun little shop in downtown Hampton, Iowa. Specializing in unique decor and gift items with a bit of country feel, we have something for everyone’s taste and budget. You’ll also find vintage and salvage treasures, clothing and accessories, books for all ages and a delightful childrens department.

We’re sourcing more items regionally throughout the store, meaning you’re supporting our economy when you purchase that unique gift. In our current inventory you’ll find BaaBaa ZuZu garments made from reclaimed woolens (Michigan), Express Yourself jewelry (Grimes, Iowa), S & S Designs jewelry (Nevada, Iowa), Lightning Bugs & Critters (Steamboat Rock, Iowa), walnut & cherry side tables (Geneva, Iowa), purse organizers (Geneva, Iowa) Aprons (Iowa Falls, Iowa), and more – not to mention the items we’re making ourselves. You get the idea – we’re supporting local artisans to ensure that we offer selections simply not available elsewhere. We still love math at Cornerstone Cottage – new math, that is. Let us show you how to mix & match to create decorator statements as unique as you are. 1+1+1=1 means our new math makes it fun and easy.

Use a sign to say what you feel, we have a large selection in various sizes, colors, and price ranges. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Just ask, we can have one custom made for you in wood or on canvas.

You’ll find old fashioned, natural products in our kitchen department, everything from basic spices, organic baking mixes, grilling spices, dip mixes and more. Many gluten-free items available too. From cookbooks to cleaning products, hot pads to tablecloths, Cornerstone Cottage has your kitchen covered. 

Cornerstone Cottage Books

If you’re a reader or want the young people in your life to become readers, Cornerstone Cottage wants to be your bookstore. If you don’t find it in stock, we can special order any book in print. Because of our relationship with the American Booksellers Association, we are lucky enough to get many books for review prior to the publication date. This means we have fresh, new titles to recommend that we guarantee are not yet available elsewhere. We also offer a “Grandma service” — just give us the birthday information for your grandkids. We’ll contact you with book recommendations in plenty of time to get the book gift wrapped and shipped. We will even keep your purchase history so that we’ll know what books your child has already received. You never have to miss a birthday again!

Cornerstone Cottage Kids

We love kids, and you’ll love our childrens department. As a premier retailer for Melissa & Doug, we have age appropriate classic and learning toys that are fun, fun, fun. Stacking toys, sorting toys, lacing toys, puzzles, games, crafts, sticker fun, and amazing stuffed animals just to name a few of our favorite items. We have books for the youngest “reader” that are indestructible, and picture books for all ages.


Our services include: dry cleaning drop off,  BNT Payday Loan and more. We also offer special order service for many of our kitchen, bath and beauty products. Check us out. We are here to serve you.
