A Tour of Our Retail Boutique

Many of you have wanted a private tour of our new retail Boutique in Eustis, FL, so I made a little video to show you all around!  There was quite a bit of traffic while we were filming the outside portion of the video, so I apologize for the extraneous noise.  I do hope you’ll enjoy a little peak inside, and hope you’ll visit the next time you’re nearby.


You can also view this video in larger format on our YouTube channel.

I also wanted to give you a birds-eye view of our warehouse area, where all of your orders are prepared and shipped. It’s not quite as *pretty* as the front of the store, but it is highly functional, and the Team works very hard to make sure everything is processed quickly and correctly. I hope you’ll enjoy meeting the Team behind My Favorite Things in a new and exciting way!
