Welcome to Whistlestop Antiques
Our bright and well stocked antiques & collectibles shop is located in the Historic Railroad Square shopping district of Santa Rosa, Sonoma County Wine Country, Northern California.
The brick walls of our antique building (built around 1910) are a perfect backdrop for a wide variety of antique treasures.
Collecting antiques is a national pastime & shopping at Whistlestop is an antique lovers dream!
Whistlestop Antiques Shop is 10,000 square feet full of antiques and collectibles. We're home to 36 dealers, a specialty bookstore, fine art studio, and Sonoma County's best jewelry shop.
This family business was founded in 1974 and for years has been a favorite stop for locals and visitors while in Santa Rosa's Historic Railroad Square. We're proud to be voted (year after year) "Best Antique Store" in Sonoma County by the Press Democrat's Readers Choice Award and by the North Bay Bohemian readers.
