WILLIAMSBURG® gets an “A” for timeless design, functionality and practicality

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas! Parents are gearing up once again to welcome a new school year with WILLIAMSBURG products. Teachers and students alike will move to the head of the class with WILLIAMSBURG® Book Bags by Stevens Linen. The book bags feature blue bird and red pepper motifs, which were inspired by prints in Colonial Williamsburg’s collections. The sturdy, all-cotton totes are machine washable and have pockets on both sides.

You may not agree with what your daughter wears to school but you both will love our Round and Octagonal Pendants. The perfect accessories to any outfit, the sterling silver, hand-hammered pendants can be monogrammed and have coordinating silver chains.

Want to keep a secret? Write it in the Black Leather Journal. Students can reflect on their school careers in this attractive journal with gilt-edged pages and a neat red tie and button close. It comes with a brochure on how to create an interesting journal.

“Knowledge is Power.” This quote from scientist and statesman Sir Francis Bacon has been transcribed on a WILLIAMSBURG porcelain Verse Dish. The blue-and-white dish is small enough to sit on a dresser in a dormitory room but big enough to be used as a catchall for coins and jewelry.

Although your child may have moved far away to school, he or she can still take a reminder of home in the Silver Plate Frame. The classic frame fits a 2-inch by 3-inch photo of family, friends and even pets. Personalize the picture frame with a monogram.

WILLIAMSBURG products created a barnyard of fun in a box with Rare Breed Cookies. The cookies feature artist renderings of animals in Colonial Williamsburg’s internationally acclaimed Rare Breeds program, including Leicester Longwool sheep, American Milking Red Devon cows, American Cream draft horses, Canadian horses, and Hamburg roosters and chickens. They are perfect for school lunches, after-school treats or snacking any time.
