Whimsical Galerie is the place to find special gifts for anyone on your list. A favorite of locals, we also attract shoppers from the entire Northern Virginia, City of Manassas, Prince William, Fairfax and Fauquier County areas who are looking for that unique and unusual gift.
Visitors to the historic area love strolling through our Old Town, taking in all the shops - especially Whimsical Galerie. Here they can find gifts to bring home for everyone including themselves!
We strive to maintain a great selection for all: men, women, children, babies - even your pet! Our customers particularly value the warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the shop. We love our cheerful, fun shop and are proud to feature earth-friendly and made-in-the-USA items, many of which are handcrafted from local artisans. Our stock changes continuously so be sure to check back often for even more great items.
Whimsical Galerie was established in 1998 and was reopened in February 2008 under the current ownership of Christine Finnie. On most occasions you will be greeted by Chris herself when you shop at Whimsical Galerie!
Our business is located at the corner of Center and Main Streets in the heart of Old Town Manassas. Waiting for the VRE? Visiting the Harris Pavilion? We hope you will come by to shop anytime you are in Old Town Manassas.
