Finding a unique house warming or closing gift is one of the best parts of my job as a Realtor, however, it can also be one of the most challenging! We certainly try to find items that are interesting and symbolic of the new adventure a buyer or seller is experiencing. Of course, supporting a local shop is the icing on the cake.
This brings us to one of our favorite Mount Dora shops. Well, actually two shops! Papilio and Botanica by Papilio are truly Mount Dora gems. Both shops, owned by Joel Maas and Henry Ollendick, are designed for those who are soothed by nature. Strolling through these shops is like soup for the soul. You will discover a treasure in every corner.
In 2013, Papilio came to Mount Dora with an array of gifts, art, home decor and so much more. Then early this year, we were delighted with the arrival of Botanica by Papilio. Similarly, Botanica brings us hundreds of live plants, unique planters and nature-inspired home decor.
Both Papilio and Botanica offer awesome promotions. Next time you’re in the shop, sign up for the rewards program to receive discounts on your purchase.
Papilio is located at 120 W. 5th Ave. Mount Dora, FL
Botanica by Papilio is located at 525 N. Donnelly St. Mount Dora, FL
