Dora Florida is know all over the country as an antique
shoppers paradise. Visitors scour the antique shops, estate
sales and flea markets looking for that special find to strike
it rich or just complete their collections.
Mount Dora, named one of the best places
in the country to retire by Money Magazine, is known as the
"The Antique Capital of Central Florida."
Along with plentiful antique shops in the quaint historic
village, the place to see is 115-acre
Renninger's Antique Center.
Open weekends only, this sprawling center features 250 dealers
selling a selection of American and import period furniture,
deco designs, paper goods, glassware, gadgets and everything
else they couldn't fit in the Smithsonian.
Catch Renningers on the third weekend of any month and you're
in for a treat. Mini Fairs attract approximately 500 dealers
every month and on the third weekends of November, January and
February, this renowned market draws roughly 1,400 dealers for
a special Friday through Sunday sale.
Well worth a two-day stay, downtown Mount Dora is complemented
by antique malls, art galleries, coffee shops, carriage rides
