Austin Texas Shopping

Austin Shopping

The motto in Austin,TX is shop local and for good reason. By doing so,  shoppers keep small local businesses in business and the profits return to the local economy. There are many Farmer’s Markets and local businesses as well as the usual franchises.

Austin, TX Keepin’ It Weird

Check out the shops and eateries of SoCo or South Congress for the Austin Keepin’ It Weird experience. Located south of the river, one cannot say they’ve been to Austin without visiting SoCo. I shop for Halloween at Lucy in Disguise With Diamonds. They have any kind of costume you want. Allens Boots has been here since 1977. And be sure to check out all the popular trailer eateries! Cool places to stay while in SoCo are the Hotel Saint Cecilia, the Austin Motel or Hotel San Jose.
