Clocks and flowers at Whittingham

Stop by Whittingham and see our window displays – often subtle, sometimes humorous and always eye-catching!  Our shops are a holiday destination for many Fredericksburg residents and visitors seeking gifts, seasonal decorations and ornaments.  Our knowledgeable and friendly staff stands ready to assist our customers with everything from bridal registration to special shipping arrangements. 

The Kitchen at Whittingham is stocked with everything for beginning cooks to experienced gourmands:  small appliances, hard-to-find kitchen gadgets, utensils, cookware, cutting boards and cutlery.  We carry a wide variety of gourmet foods.  Wines are chosen to deliver great taste at a reasonable price; we carry a selection of varietals and blends to suit most palates.

The in-store kitchen plays host to cooking classes, demonstrations and seasonal wine tastings.  Some past classes include:  Dim Sum, Stir Fry, Summer Salads, Six-Minute Desserts, Table Settings and more. 

History of Whittingham

After a design-oriented career in Minneapolis and New York City, including Display Director for Cartier, Bob Whittingham moved to Virginia and opened his first store in 1994.  Located in the heart of downtown Fredericksburg, the 300 square-foot space has evolved into three stores!   Bob and his staff invite you to come in and browse – you might find just the thing you’ve been searching for!
