Shopping in Austin
Small businesses are at the heart of our local community and are a big part of what makes Austin such a special place to visit and call home. They make our neighborhoods more vibrant, our shopping experiences more personal and are essential to keeping our city’s culture alive.
Give the gift of experience this year with a walking street art tour from a local tour company. Treat yourself to hand crafted jewelry designed by a local artist. Buy tickets to a local light show for you and your family. Gift your favorite person a bottle (or two) of wine produced from local grapes. Get your roommate a bag of coffee grinds from your favorite local coffee shop. Or bring a charcuterie board hand-picked with love from a local cheese shop to your next socially distanced gathering. Whatever it is, make it unique and make it local.
