Winter Park is well known as a place to spend and get spent in the Orlando area; the shady, moss draped oaks and charming brick streets of its affluent downtown are enough to lull even the tightest of wallets into satisfied submission. And while there are many upscale shops in which to drop a handful of pretty pennies, it's not essential for a memorable shopping experience. Case in point: Winter Park's Saturday Farmer's Market has been delighting locals and visitors for more than 25 years and some of them never buy more than a basket of berries or a cup of coffee. On Park Avenue, glittery shops like Alex & Ani offer beautiful, delicate pieces of jewelry at quite reasonable price points that carve out a bit of scratch for all kinds of charitable organizations. Gift shops abound, of course. The Doggie Door is a pooch-friendly purveyor of all things canine with a side of wine to pair with the bacony biscuits and haute couture collars. Collectors of everything from ancient coins to pretty pebbles will enjoy exploring Ancient Artifacts & Treasures, while collectors of comics couldn't do better than A Comic Shop, where they're happy to help you find the greatest thing you haven't yet read.
