Shopping in…Downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, The Wooden Indian, Home Accessories, Gifts, China, Premier Bridal Registry, An Iconic Store, Delaware Beaches



An iconic shop; that’s what I call The Wooden Indian.  Since 1977 in our community, this shop is a representation of what shopping in Downtown Rehoboth Beach has become.  First class, sophisticated, charming, exquisitively appointed, accessible to all.



I remember when my children were young, they would look at me like I was from another world, as I would come into The Wooden Indian and the first thing I would say was: Touch only with your eyes. You know that look, don’t you?  It worked because they never broke anything, thank God.



The Wooden Indian is located at 25 Baltimore Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach.  Tels. 302-227-8331, 800-225-8331.  The website is  On Facebook, it can be found as Woodenindian Rehoboth.  That might be your best best as you will be able to follow updates and what’s coming new into the store.



This is the second season for Paul and Joseph, the proprietors.  Under their creative strengths, The Wooden Indian has acquired a modern simplicity that I noticed as I came in.  You can move through the store with ease; every item is beautifully displayed.


One person that is key in this shop is Frances.  I think she has seen the beginnings, the ups and downs of the store and the resurgence of what The Wooden Indian represents at the Delaware Beaches.


Rehoboth Beach is a very walkable town and The Wooden Indian is one street north of Rehoboth Avenue. 




The Wooden Indian is still there as you come into the store; to the left. 


Well known brands are Lynn Chase, Waterford, Herend, Godiva, Royal Copenhagen, Beatriz Ball, Vietri, Nambe, and Vera Wang, among others.


The shop will wrap and ship.  Baskets can be made for presents.  A variety of preserves, peanuts, sauces, and dressings.




A new line of  jewelry by designer Esther-Ann Ingram, an independent shell artist arranging shells into beautiful works of art.  One of a kind pieces; the shells come from all over the world.




The Bridal Registry is an integral part of the traditional wedding preparation.  The Wooden Indian has china, crystal, silverware, and plenty of gifts in a wide variety of prices.



It is a special time of the year. Plenty of weddings during the summer months.  The beaches are an attraction for that special day.


And, for the new addition to the family, they also have presents, as well.



The Wooden Indian is part of Rehoboth Beach….talk to you later.
