Hampton Stationery began in the historic Downtown Hampton building once known as Cheyne Studio, a local photography studio owned by W.E. “Happy” Cheyne. Built in 1890, the “Cheyne Building” has been a landmark in Downtown Hampton for many, many years. After Happy Cheyne’s death in 1976, hundreds of glass photography negatives were discovered in the building. These negatives serve as an important historical record chronicling life in Hampton and its prominent figures. Hampton Stationery donated this archive of Hampton’s history to the City of Hampton to support the first fundraiser for the Virginia Air and Space Center.
Since Hampton Stationery’s humble beginning in 1932, it has continued to grow. In 1957 Jayne and John Garnet Ishon became the owners of Hampton Stationery. Jayne and John Garnet were beloved members of the Hampton community and always took pride in the relationships they built with their many customers. For Jayne and John Garnet, Hampton Stationery embodied the meaning of family business with numerous family members having worked in the store over the years.
In 1986 their only son, John Cabot Ishon, took over as owner of Hampton Stationery and started Hampton Stationery’s furniture and office supply business line. In recent years, Hampton Stationery has evolved as a leader in commercial office furniture supply in the Hampton Roads area and in 2016 Hampton Stationery launched Hampton Office Design which handles our client’s office design, redesign, and space planning needs. Like his parents, John Cabot has made Hampton Stationery’s core mission one based on unparalleled customer service and personal relationships. Owned by the Ishon family for the past 60 years, Hampton Stationery has succeeded because of its devoted customers and an unwavering focus on customer service.
Hampton Stationery thrives because of its dedicated and helpful staff. We invite you to visit us at 108 East Queen Street on the corner of Queen Street and Wine Street in Hampton, Virginia and enjoy the feel of a timeless place of character with quality products for all shoppers.
