Where are the best areas in Austin for shopping?

Does Austin have any cool areas or streets for shopping? I love local stores, home made goods, small boutiques but not opposed to some bigger brands or malls :) Where are the best places for this?

    S Congress Ave is a great place for Austin-y shopping. There are numerous clothing/jewelry boutiques as well as stores with home made artifacts. On the weekends, there are so many stands set up where people sell their own local items too. Also, food trucks!

    Austin has a lot of of cool shopping areas. S Congress Ave was really popular. I bought a lot of art pieces at Yard Dog Art Gallery which was a pretty cool place. Texas Clothier was a great spot, my girlfriend loved it.

    Congress Ave has the best little shops from unique local art to really cool shops that sell the strangest things like something out of a comic book. You have to walk the entire street it's totally worth it. Also the original buffalo exchange is on Guadalupe St near the college. The clothes there are super cheap and my fiancé and I always find amazing vintage clothes. If your in that area you have to stop into the coop it's the original one and carries local desserts from red rabbit which makes the most amazing dairy free / egg free desserts I've ever had. Pins colada glazed donuts haha. Also on Guadalupe is the famous Jeremiah the innocent wall painting that Kurt cobain used to wear on his tshirts. Oh oh and of course there is a really awesome bohemian cafe that all the locals hang at. It's called Bouldin Creek Cafe and it's near the Austin postcard wall mural. Oh and.... Almost forgot. Amazing tex mex place called curra's grill that does frozen avocado margaritas. Amazing!!!!! That's on Oltorf st. If you need more info i wrote some stuff down about Austin in my blog adventurous vacationer.com but I pretty much covered everything in this reply. Have an awesome time! Austin is amazing!!!!

    You have the Round Rock Premium Outlets which is only 15 minutes from Austin. You may also enjoy The Domain.

    Agreed on S Congress Ave - you can't go wrong with a stroll down Soco. It's a nice mix of restaurants, vintage stores, boutiques, art galleries, flea market and on weekends you add in artists stands. Some of my favorites are:

    Allen's Boots- whether you are in the market for cowboy boots or not - you have to stop in here. You can't help but be in awe of the sheer number of boots and the variety. My bet is that you will end up buying one of the most comfortable shoes you'll ever own.

    Uncommon Objects- this is sheer fun to explore in all it's color coded goodness!

    Maya Star- great for fun one of a kind sundresses and pretty necklaces.

    Parts & Labour- for the men in your life- stop in here for some cool finds.

    Big Top Candy Shop - sure to find your favorite childhood candy.

    Kendra Scott Jewelry- sure you can get these in big retail stores anywhere in the country - but here is where Kendra started. Have fun trying to decide on just one pair of iconic Austin earrings!

    Hopdoddy- make sure you get in line by 11am to get into Hopdoddy for a great burger and don't skimp on the shake!

    Home Slice Pizza- best eggplant pie! Seriously! you can get by the slice, or sit down for lunch.

    South Congress Cafe- nice spot for brunch too.


    If you are in a car - then I would explore South Lamar & South First (few streets over) for some nice boutiques and very interesting spots - they just aren't as concentrated as South Congress is - but very uniquely Austin.

    SoLa - cool women's boutique

    End of An Ear- record store

    Yes, third vote for S Congress Ave. If you're looking for things that are super unique to Austin, you have to stroll down this street. If anything, it's also a great place to do some people watching. If you love music, Waterloo Records & Video is the spot for vinyls and other music goods. San Marcos Premium Outlets is THE spot for discount stuff. Love it there. The Domain is also a place unique to Austin, great shops and fun places to eat!
