Have you ever been to a candy store and felt overwhelmed by the amount of choices, in awe by the beautiful colors and shapes, and disappointed that you can’t have everything? That’s how it feels to visit Andy Thornal Company. A beautiful rainbow of canoes hang from the ceiling, rolls of sleeping bags line tables like billowy clouds and the scent of fine leather is in the air.
Andy Thornal Company has been offering Winter Haven residents high quality outdoor apparel, sporting goods, shoes, fine clothing, jewelry and luggage since 1945.
Boutique for Outdoor Enthusiasts
"Andy Thornal is part of the cultural fabric of Winter Haven. It’s not just because they’ve been here since 1945, and not just because of the items they stock, but because when you walk in the door you are talking to the family."
You’ll find standard camping and fishing gear plus fly rods, canoes, flannels, Costa sunglasses, Yeti coolers and leather goods. Ladies will love shopping for hand crafted and fine jewelry, apparel lines such as Vineyard Vines, and popular brands of sandals and shoes.
While no one on staff carries the title of personal stylist, they are always willing to offer advice, whether it be which canoe is right for you, or which shirt you should buy your spouse, friend or child.
Fly Fishing Classes
The shop, which stocks an awesome array of fly rods, ties, tippets, leaders and more, also hosts introductory fly-fishing classes for children age 10 and older.
Area Restaurants & Shops
Make a day of exploring Downtown Winter Haven by throwing in breakfast at Egg Haven or lunch at The Fire Restaurant. And why not add a stop at The Shop, which is an adorable boutique only 1.5 blocks from Andy Thornal. End the afternoon at Grove Roots Brewing Co.
