Lovely little shop that saves you from traveling overseas to by ceramics and pottery from all over the world. I came to Mt. Dora on this trip with this particular shop in mind. I had bought four little Spanish plates in it about 5 years ago. One recently was broken and I couldn't find a replacement anywhere - including Ebay! I love their selection of a wide variety of pottery and it definitely is worth ducking into this shop to see if something catches your eye, too.
What to buy: Hand-painted ceramics and pottery from Mexico, Spain, Morocco, and Portugal, as well as Talavera tin mirrors. Their decorative house number tiles are very pretty and popular. You can order online or give them a call if you don't have time to go to Mount Dora.
What to pay: Wide range of prices depending on what you are buying.

Stop by any shop and ask the owner for a map of Mount Dora. They all have "shopping maps" with every shop, restaurant, and attraction listed. Be polite and start a conversation with them. I have never found a rude shopkeeper. They will guide you in the right direction or make restuarant suggestions.
Part of the fun is talking to the employees in the shops!
