About Us


The Embellished Cottage

The Embellished Cottage first opened its doors in 2012 in Austin, TX. It all began because of a love of fashion and the love of creative talent. My husband and I, Wayne and Charlene Hardy, relocated to Austin in 2010. We were driven to move from Ohio by family, the weather and the music scene. Once here in Austin we began getting more and more excited about what there was to offer here and in the adjoining beautiful hill country. We not only followed the music scene, but also the fashion scene. And the next thing we knew we were shop owners. 

The Embellished Cottage offers a nice range of women's clothes, jewelry, and accessories, along with a small selection of home decor and gift items. We have experienced a lot of growth since those first days. Due to my love of fashion and art we carry a wide range of jewelry designed and created by artists from the Texas area and surrounding states. The jewelry consists of gorgeous pieces created by talented designers in moderate to higher end price ranges. We also offer a wide range of clothing in moderate to designer lines. We offer classic to trendy to completely unique along with gorgeous designer creations. And we throw in a little boho and other fun styles along the way.

Our success and excitement in this business has led us to this new and exciting path. That path leads us to this e-commerce store which became our dream and is now going to become our reality. We welcome you to enjoy our offerings and hope you find them as amazing as we do. We also maintain a storefront you can visit at the Hill Country Galleria located on Highway 71 West at the edge of Austin, Tx.  The actual address of the store is 12820 Hill Country Blvd, Unit E-115, Austin, Tx 78738.  Visit here, or there, soon and be sure to visit often.  We appreciate you so much because without you could not have realized our dream.
