Shopping

The most important thing you will take home from a vacation in Central Florida is a gallery of memories…but that does not mean it is the only thing you’ll take home. Explore some of our unique shops, boutiques and markets and you will find every sort of souvenir you can imagine, and a few you have likely never thought of as well.

Plan A Trip

Vintage and Antique Shops

Antique and vintage shops in Central Florida like The Stable Home Décor & The Barn, and Biggars Antiques in Lake Alfred, Lloyds of Lakeland, Dixieland Relics and Low Country Vintage & Antiques in Lakeland, Country Primitives Vintage Market and The Red Geranium in Winter Haven offer the opportunity to purchase furnishings and fashion from bygone eras.

Art and Coffee Shops

Art galleries and coffee shops in Central Florida feature talented local artists. Visit The Gallery and Frame Shop in Lake Wales, Mitchell’s Coffee Shop in Lakeland and Unfiltered Bartow to buy local art. Another great place to shop for local art is TwentySeven, which is around the corner from Mitchells.

Souvenirs You Can Eat

Handmade candies, fiery hot sauces, locally grown fruit, orange blossom honey and other delicious treats let you capture the taste of Central Florida and enjoy it wherever you call home. You will find these yummy souvenirs at Davidson of Dundee, Webb’s Citrus Candy Factory, Florida’s Natural Grove Store and our very own Visitor Information Center in Davenport.

Lakeland & Winter Haven Specific Gifts

If you are looking for unique gifts that feature local landmarks in creative ways, go to Scout & Tag in Lakeland, and The Shop in Winter Haven. These shops in Central Florida, along with a few others, carry art made by Josh “Bump” Galletta, a local artist who has a collection of items in West Elm stores across Florida. If you love all things bath and body, visit one of Rafa Natural’s three stores.
