What ever you're looking for in the way of gifts including accessories, baby as well as bridal items, jewelry, personal care and so much more in this historical two story house which has at least 2 ghosts--on of which is a cat. Take a stroll in historic downtown Longwood and include some shopping at this quaint place that's packed full of all your gift needs.

Have you ever gone to a shop and not been allowed to browse because the owner or clerk followed you around, talked incessantly, tried to convince you to buy items that you had no interest in and, because she was shadowing you, made you feel like she was checking to make sure you weren't shoplifting? This is that kind of place. There is a fine line between being greeted and offered assistance or being harassed and, in my experience it came close to harassment. The shop consisted of Vera Bradley items, jewelry, candles, lotions, etc. It's a shame... I could have enjoyed looking about the historic building and shopping, but I had to leave prematurely to get from the clutches of the overbearing owner/clerk who tried to sell me a certain brand of lotion, told me about which brand her husband likes, what other people had bought, and forced sample lotion spurts on me. She went far beyond being helpful and headlong into being pushy and making me very uncomfortable. I tried to let her know I wasn't interested, but she was VERY pushy and insistent. I tried on a bracelet, and then she began pushing different bracelets for me to buy. I wanted to make a purchase, but that was an ordeal - rather than efficiently ring up my sale, she talked and talked and talked and talked and then talked some more. It was a RELIEF to exit this shop!

This is the only Gift Shop in Historic Down Town Longwood and It has everything from Wedding items to a Little Black Toddler's dress. It is wonderfully crowded and you don't know where to look next. There are two floors (but If you have problems with stairs you might not want to do the second as the stars are narrow and curved) and I love the layout of the house with its lovely upstairs, bay (I think I'm not always good with terms of architecture) window and of course the quaint and unusual must have shop items. The Gentleman that ran the shop was friendly and there were even fresh cookies. The shop is in the Historical Inside Outside House (an early pre-fab home built up north in 1870, shipped and rebuilt in Altamonte Springs and finally over 100 years later when it was scheduled for demolition it was moved here to Longwood where it seems happy to remain: "The Inside-Outside House takes its name from its unusual exposed-stud framing on the outside and panels bolted together in shiplap fashion. An interior stairway still has the tight spiral stairs found in ships" (Orlando Sentinel). There have even been rumors that there are ghosts. (See Haunt Hunter's Guide to Florida by Moore). All in al its a great place to shop and enjoy all manors of lovely items, a wonderful building and if you see Brutus say Hi for me.
