I recommend this dental office for adults. Everyone who works there is very friendly -- they just don't seem to relate very well to the children. But it is easy to get an appointment and the fees are very reasonable.
Three Crafty Ladies is a craft and sewing lovers dream, tucked away on Sanibel Island. They have a large selection of yarns, threads, fabrics and patterns.

I love this place!
Tools for Teaching in Apopka is one of the best educational supply stores in Florida. They have a huge inventory of just about anything you could ever need for teaching or home schooling. Plus they often give discount coupons to regular customers. I would highly recommend Tools for Teaching.
School Stuff is a great store for teachers - and home schoolers! They have a wide variety of educational materials. They also stock many arts and crafts items. The staff is friendly and helpful. Many are teachers or former teachers. School Stuff can also order items for you if they do not have them in stock. The only down side is that they do not accept returns of books and give only store credit on returns, no refunds.
Millers School Supplies has an unbelievably large inventory for a storefront that doesn't look very large. The selection of bulletin board cutouts and borders is the largest I have seen anywhere. They also have an extensive selection of books and workbooks for teachers or for home schooling. They have a friendly, courteous and knowledgeable staff too. I would highly recommend Millers School Supplies. They will most likely have everything you need for education! They are open 10-6, Monday-Saturday.
Koons Locksmiths has very experienced and expert locksmiths. I was very impressed by the speed with which they responded to my call when I locked my keys in the car. They also specialize in door locks. Their prices were very reasonable as well.

The shop has a fine selection of crystal and plates.
Sew Perfect is absolutely the best alterations shop I have every used. They are very professional and friendly. Their level of expertise is amazing. They have altered clothing from regular to petite sizes that I never thought could be done. The results look superb! The cost is reasonable. I think in my case it was about $10 per item. The results are well-worth it.
