Excellent and Unique Store
Jan 2020
Love this store. One of our first times anytime we visit Mount Dora. They always have a variety of choices for all types of body shapes. I am not a plus size but certainly not a '2' either...maybe size 14 or 16 and kind of short. Not easy to find flattering outfits. I have purchased several of my 'go it' items for work and travel from The Secret Garden. And again, not an easy fit. The sales team is hands on, bringing me suggestions, asking me what I like and giving me honest feedback so I don't end up purchasing something I'm not going to be happy and confident wearing in all budget and budget friendly (me) price ranges. They also have a nice selection of jewelry to choose from. I love cross necklaces and have gotten at 3 or 4 cross necklaces from The Secret Garden. I just wore one to work last week and received another compliment on it...one of many. Finally, they have a wide assortment of very reasonably priced and unique gifts. I usually pick up a couple and even if I don't give them right away, they are always very appreciated to whoever I give them to. Can't say enough good things about The Secret Garden. You really just have to visit the store to understand. They are online too so if you aren't going to Mount Dora in the near future, visit their website.

Excellent friendly service
Feb 2020
Beautiful shop to see, but excessively expensive. Items are high end, but can be found more reasonable elsewhere. We always wonder through for it's beauty and very warm and friendly atmosphere, but none of us have ever purchased anything.

Thank you so much for your comments on our store’s beauty and warmth. For over 12 years, we have strived to provide the best customer service possible. We truly love our customers and enjoy helping them find the perfect outfit to make them feel their prettiest possible for whatever occasion they are shopping for. It is this exceptional hands-on service we hope to always be known for. Sure you can possibly find an item in our shop in another store or online as there are only so many manufacturers but it is the service that will always set us apart and why we have so many loyal customers. I am not sure if you gave us a fair comment though on our pricing. We carry lines from all over the world and yes some of them are of a higher price point (many one of kind/original artist pieces or made from exclusive fabrics some even designed by ourselves and are truly Secret Garden originals). But we also have a huge selection of beautiful items for the price conscience buyer. In fact our average price across all items in our store is only $52.00. I just ran the report to confirm that number. This means for every higher dollar item, we have a low priced item to average out to this number. Our famous one size travel skirts are still only $44 after 12 years! I would encourage you the next time you are in, to take the time to look over the store thoroughly as I know you will find many items you can’t live without and that won’t hurt your pocketbook. And don’t forget to ask for our help! That’s what we are there for! —Secret Garden Owner

My favorite store in Mt. Dora

I first came here in 2002 and fell in love with this store. I was so clad to see it was still open 16 years later. I found a whole outfit and will use it for many years! Love it!

I loved the clothing in the shop!!! Ended up buying a top and an extender there. The clerk was very helpful! Some prices were in the higher end for my budget but not extremely high.

Crowded with items
Jan 2017 • Friends
It was nice to look around. I think these are separately owned booths. I didn't find anything. Neither did my friend. Wasn't much room to move around.

Cute boutique
May 2016 • Friends
This was a cute boutique with some special pieces but it was expensive. I didn't buy anything. I couldn't afford anything that I wanted in the shop. But it was nice to look around if you visit Mount Dora for the shops.

THIS SHOP PROVES THAT EVERYTHING OLD IS ACTUALLY NEW AGAIN
Jan 2016 • Friends
This shop is full of fun items the best (and most) are the clothes which all have a little bit (or more) of previous fashion and yet are all very modern--this is where you come for something a bit (or a lot) different. From the latest fabrics to knit affairs that proclaim you'd rather be in a previous century but since you're not you'll look great proclaiming it. The shop is small and overflowing with clothes, an gifts. Even if you don't buy it's a fun visit and the staff are friendly, helpful and with none of that bigger town push to buy.

A chic boutique!
Jan 2016 • Friends
What a beautiful little shop! The clothing is amazing, ... catering to all shapes and sizes. Vintage and French-style giftware is gorgeous. I could have spent a fortune (if I had one!). Loved everything. Staff very friendly. I found the perfect birthday gift for a dear friend!

Pretty clothing but not friendly
Jun 2015 • Solo
Pretty clothing and I like it that they carried clothes for larger sized women, but unfortunately both times I was in, with a different sales person each time, they were not very friendly, which didn't make it very fun to shop. I'll be back, but won't go running back. I like to have fun when I shop.

The Best Boutique in all of Central Florida
Dec 2014 • Friends
I happened upon The Secret Garden boutique while visiting Mt Dora for the day with a girlfriend. They have the most wonderful clothing line for women and children I have ever seen. It is a lovely Parisian-styled shop with a romantic feel of the 1920's. They carry a vast array of fun and frilly clothing from children's sizes to plus sizes and more unique accessories than I could ever describe. Beautiful hats, scarves and jewelry as well. Even gorgeous household décor. I have been back several times as their customer service is outstanding! I have never left empty-handed!! Marti (the owner) and her staff are always very helpful and patient as I tend try on half of their inventory upon each visit. Can't say enough great things about this boutique, I will be a customer for life!
