March 29th is Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. A day to support the businesses that make our communities unique.
Continuing our celebration of all things small business, we want to share the coolest, kitschiest shops in Kissimmee.
Whether you’re here for Mom and Pop Business Owners Day or planning a trip, check out our favorite locally owned retail hot spots.
Branded B Boutique
Pop into Branded B Boutique for a taste of hometown flair. Owned by three sisters who grew up in Kissimmee, the store’s collection is described as vintage couture with a touch of cowgirl flair.
Walking into the store, you’ll immediately notice the stunning artwork. The girls’ mother hand paints each piece. Some of these masterpieces are transformed into scarves, shirts, dresses or ponchos as part of their own clothing line, B Studio Wearable Art.
Items available in the boutique include clothing, accessories, shoes, boots, jewelry, wall art, and candles.
Florida Orange World
Impossible to miss, Florida Orange World is an iconic local landmark located on Highway 192 in Kissimmee. For more than 40 years this family-owned business has been selling the freshest Florida citrus, Florida-themed specialty gifts, and gourmet sweets and snacks. The store’s citrus is grown in the Indian River region, giving customers a variety of locally sourced citrus, such as Florida oranges, honeybells, ruby red grapefruit, and tangerines.
Market Street Gallery
The Market Street Gallery is downtown Celebration’s hometown décor and more store.
From greeting cards, tote bags and jewelry, to home accents and holiday decorations you’ll find a large selection of unique and affordable gifts. And no matter what time of year you go, there’s always holiday cheer in the air thanks to the year-round Christmas room.
