The Prop Shop is located in the replica, historic Woodlea House at the heart of Wooton Park. The original Woodlea House was built in 1871 by the area’s most prominent citizen, Captain Melton Haynes. As the home to the Prop Shop and Jones Brothers Air and Seaplane Adventures, the replica Woodlea House serves as an important link between the thriving Tavares of today and the area’s rich history.  

Following a “re-imagination” in early 2017 the Prop Shop provides a welcome atmosphere that is a cross between Key West and Cape Cod with a splash of seaplane! You can find all of your favorite Tavares gear at the Prop Shop includes baseball caps, t-shirts and sweatshirts. Not to mention all of the great Tavares branded items such as water bottles, keychains and City flags! Children can choose from a variety of seaplane and aviation inspired toys, while adults may trend towards the seaplane jewelry and scale seaplane models. Tavares Seaplane Base, “FA1” (the airport’s FAA identifier) inspired merchandise including mugs, license plates and throw pillows all make great gifts!
