Today my son and I were off to Mount Dora. Our intentions were to go to Renningers Flea Market. We left the house with a general idea of how to get Mount Dora. Although we didn't know the exact location of the flea market. The ride there was so enjoyable with hardly any traffic. As we entered Mount Dora I immediately got excited. The place has that old small town feel with huge oak trees and historic buildings everywhere. Our first stop would be the Village Antique Mall.
You won't miss this place with these sitting out front....not sure what they are all about...I thought they were kind of creepy.
I loved this room.
I came across this booth and met the owner. A very nice man who has been in the antique business for forty years. He does such a wonderful job at displaying his items. In this display there were various relegious books of all denominations. He said they all get along! How funny.
Then I came across this booth. I'm not sure what the green tub thing was, I even took a closer look, but couldn't figure it out. I thought it was interesting.
Oh how I wish this picture would have turned out better. The items here were exquisite. The pink tea set on the top shelf was gorgeous.
I could go on and on about this place, but time to move on. Next stop would be downtown Mount Dora around fifth street.
There were so many shops downtown. The Painter's Daughter had to be my favorite. It was just different. The store itself is an old building that has been creatively decorated. It had wooden floors and the walls painted in an array of colors. Around every corner there were inspiring words written on the walls. Upstairs there was an art gallery...strangely enough there were discarded shoes all around the edge of the room....I should have asked what that was about? The store sells designer clothing and shoes. You will also find antiques, jewelry and artwork.
Wouldn't you love to have this mirror? I'm hoping to go back here and take more pictures.
It was a great day in Mount Dora. I plan to go back soon and make it to Renningers. I hope you all enjoy my pictures....
