Spending time in What-Nots & Whimsy is a lot like treasure
hunting: you never know what you're going to find. Starting out as a dream for many years, upon retirement it didn't take long to make that dream a reality.
The Dream: To open a shop with merchandise that ranges from Fun & Funky to Fine & Fancy, which includes gently used, collectable, vintage, antique and a little bit of new. What-nots and Whimsy is a place where customers can find unique treasures for themselves or as gifts that they won't find in every other Gift Shop, and is a place where there is something for all tastes and budgets.
The Reality: We began in 1996 in a 600 sq. ft. shop located on Hwy 101, in Gearhart, Oregon. In 1999 we moved to our present location, in Astoria, Oregon, gaining almost 3 times as much space and “foot traffic”. Here we happily continue our mission to find and provide our customers with a special selection of Art Work, Furniture, and a large variety of other Home & Garden décor, along with Books, Jewelry & other Accessories. Here too
you will find Toys, & a myriad of Collectables including a section devoted to Disneyana and characters from other cartoons, movies & television.
We are very excited about our recent expansion of Wedding and Baby Supplies.
If you can't visit our shop, we hope you will visit our website on a regular basis and discover how much fun shopping “out of the ordinary” can be.
