“What is a cameleer?” you may ask. A cameleer is the leader of a camel train. For us, the word “cameleer” evoked a vision of strings of camels trekking along the Silk Road, trading in exotic goods of earlier times. While we don’t trade on camelback, the name “The Cameleer” seemed a natural for our store.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to The Cameleer by using our Culpeper trip planner .

I am never disappointed when visiting The Cameleer in Culpeper, VA. Their selections and constant change of what they have to offer is refreshing and I never leave the store without buying something. ... more »
Very cute shop with exquisite taste. Tips on the pricey end for usually genuine worth quality(not everything is made in china!) Some items are not 100% perfect due to handmade imperfections or maybe even improper craftsmanship, but the girls behind the counter are very sweet. I enjoy the gift wrap option for any purchased gift! Unusual paper and very cutely done. Don't have any personal experience with the clothing department, but friends have adored the stationary items they've received and this place has some pretty cool coffee mugs. The items in this store are unique and vary from children to kitchen, decor to functional, and useful to goofy. Even if you don't buy anything its worth a look around.
Nice collection of unique gifts. Really liked the 3-D cards and New Zealand wool items.
