Part of the fun in shopping is exploring, wandering aimlessly as you and your friends chat and your imaginations soar, browsing wares you’d never before laid eyes upon. However, in this current day and age, where big-name stores are all that we almost ever see these days, it’s nice while on vacation to peruse and support the local shops. These are not just a place to quickly grab an item, but a place that someone has poured their soul into, a place that is someone’s actual living dream come true. So, when the shopping in Winter Park itch hits you during your stay with us, keep in mind these top five local only Winter Park shops!
Shopping in Winter Park: Altitude Jewelry
When many of use hear the term jewelry, our minds will flick to large, flashy rings encrusted with diamonds, which many of us will hardly ever be able to afford, much less wear. Well, at Altitude Jewelry, not only do they have a large selection of jewelry that goes back to the beauty of simplicity, but also are all affordable for anyone’s budget. Many of the themes you’ll see as you peruse their wares will be that of the surrounding wildlife as well as the local culture. You will see some with images of the mountains, others with bears, and others that are simply elegant designs that, for no reason in particular, are pleasing to the eye. As well, you won’t find any large, gaudy rings encrusted with various gemstones which look like they may weigh more then your television. Instead, you truly will find a selection that is genuinely for the common person and shows that there truly is elegance in the simple, and that you don’t have to spend a fortune to be able to wear something beautiful.
Since humans were first able to hold a piece of charcoal, we have been fascinated by art of any kind. This is for good reason, as a simple painting on the wall can completely change the entire feel and atmosphere of a room. Well, Uptripping knows this and has taken the time to put together a rather large selection of artwork for you to peruse and purchase. However, you won’t only find your typical paintings of local wildlife and culture; instead, you will also find a large collection of mediums, styles, and images from artists around the world. Each piece is not only beautiful to behold but truly a one-of-a-kind piece. The art pieces are updated daily, ensuring there is always something new to see. When you walk in you will be treated to images ranging from simple portraits of skiers to large African lions to images of Native American culture to still portraits of local wildlife. Not only this, but you will also find a surprisingly large selection of “wearable art,” which is a selection of various clothing items with various images and portraits upon them. So, why not take an hour or two to truly appreciate the arts of the world, and maybe even take one home with you to share with your family and friends back home.
