About Us


Whispering Winds was created over 10 years in beautiful downtown Mt.Dora, FL.  We have developed over the years into a happy gift shop that strives to provide something for everyone!  Known for our flowing bubbles that give the streets a fun, inviting atmosphere to walk and shop, we want people to leave our store a little bit happier.  

Dawn & Wayne McEnany purchased the store in April of 2016.  Wanting to add a little more lighter vibe and refreshing feel to the store.  We are slowly adding more outdoor products & local artist items, while maintaining the customer favorites.

We began this journey in April of 2016 with big dreams. Dawn being a native growing up in Mount Dora has shopped and witnessed the many changes over the years.  Always wanting a little bit more diversity for different generations she and her husband decided to make a leap of faith and switch career paths. Together we have many wonderful ideas to bring to the each and every generation and types of people within the community.  We have three young children and this gives us both the opportunity to enjoy them and watch the grow, while creating and giving back to such a special town.  We are so happy to have started this journey and look forward to many years to come! 

Currently, we carry everything from plants, outdoor decor, home essentials, clothing, wind chimes, children's Golden Books, Melissa & Doug educational toys, USA made toys, local artist designs, Maui Mats and so much more!  Stay tuned...there are many exciting new things on the horizon for Whispering Winds.
