They sell for $500 at Underwater Adventures, 400 W. Magnolia St.

Bath Bombs Linda Felton makes all of her own soap, including Bath Bombs, which are popular with adults and children. The balls are made of baking soda, citric acid, and special oils.

You may have to look twice to realize these candles aren’t real—they just look like they have flickering wicks. Customers like them because they don’t have to worry about forgetting to blow out candles at night. Some versions have timers to light up and shut off automatically. Prices vary by size, from $18.99 to $57.99, at Willowbee’s Accent Furniture & Gifts, 712 W. Main St.

f fishing or enjoying the surrounding lakes is on your mind, you may want to check out the shops of Eustis. Boaters, anglers, or even those coffee and tea aficionados can satisfy their whims.

Musical dolls

Let’s pretend toys

Little girls and even great-grandmas are bound to smile over the handmade, cloth, collectible musical dolls from Green Tree. The dolls come in a variety of styles: mermaids, birthday princesses, fairies, and storybook characters like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Mary Had a Little Lamb, to name a few. Wind up from the back and the doll’s head gently moves in a circle as music plays. They’re available for $28 at Peddler’s Wagon, 25 E. Magnolia Ave.

What child doesn’t like to pretend to do grown-up things? Melissa & Doug’s playtime toys, including a scoop-and-serve ice cream counter, slice-and-bake cookie set, Order Up! Diner Play set, and other games and puzzles, are designed to spark young children’s imaginations. Prices range from $9.99 to $29.99 at Bay Street Pharmacy, 2 E. Magnolia Ave.

Yeti coolers In 2006, Yeti coolers was founded with the simple mission to build a cooler you’d use every day, so it’s no wonder serious outdoor enthusiasts love that these coolers can keep ice and drinks cold for 1½ weeks. The coolers are a big hit with anglers and very much in demand during the hurricane season. The coolers vary in size, colors, and prices of $199.99 and up at the Salty Mare, 113 N. Bay St.

Four-legged friend mug These oversized, 18-ounce, molded stoneware mugs are beautifully decorated with colorful images of beloved dog and cat breeds in 3-D relief lettering from Americaware’s Best Friends Series. In addition to coffee or tea, they’re also ideal for serving chili or soup, and each mug is microwave and dishwasher safe. They’re priced at $16.95 at Peddler’s Wagon, 25 E. Magnolia Ave. WRITER'S PICK

Huk fishing T-shirts

Boaters and anglers who want clothing that keeps them cool and dry out on the water are bound to appreciate the smooth, silky, cool-to-the-touch Supima Micro Modal fabrics used in Huk performance attire. Unlike cotton, the fabric resists shrinkage and is less likely to fade over time. Prices range from $39.99 to $49.99 at the Salty Mare, 113 N. Bay St.
