Create an itinerary including The Cameleer
“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.

Our initial selection of aboriginal art and handcraft from Central Australia has expanded over the last 20 years to include products from over 80 countries, showcased in our shop in downtown Culpeper, Virginia, becoming an around-the-world adventure, right at your doorstep!

In response to customer requests, our product selection has expanded beyond Central Australian artifacts to include jewelry, clothing for men, women and children, linens, tableware, housewares, stationary, and anything else that catches our fancy. Our product selection is always changing, as are the countries represented, ranging from Argentina to Zimbabwe.

  • Store had a nice display of items and gifts, and I probably would have bought several things for Christmas were it not for the unfriendly staff and cool reception.

  • This is a very nice store with so many nice things to see. A great place to find a special present. It also has clothes that you don’t see in the department/chain stores. Will definitely shop there.....  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.
  • I was walking through town with my mom who is a recovering Cancer patient and very elderly. She was limping pretty bad as she had been having issues as a result of the radiation therapy and saw a chair to sit down in. So we went in for that reason. Lady in front quickly asked us if we had our masks and asked us to leave when we said no. (Just to be clear the mask mandate is not currently in effect) Didn't offer a disposable mask. Didn't give her a few minutes to catch her breath. Blown away about how in name of better health, had no concern about an old lady with heath conditions.
