Shop Locally This Christmas at These 5 Austin Businesses

Christmas shopping can be hard, especially because of the large number of businesses out in the world to choose from. If you’re wanting to bring your shopping experience a little closer to home and support local businesses, I’ve rounded up find stores in the Austin area that you need to check out.

Cotone Clothing+ Beauty Bar

I absolutely love this local retail store. They sell clothing and jewelry both from local designers and Italian designers. The owner, Jentri, also has her own beauty line that she sells in store with a gorgeous collection of makeup. The sales team is super sweet and helpful every time I go in. And there’s also a gorgeous collection of tulle skirts – eventually I’ll have one of them hanging in my closet. Visit their website to shop online:

Passport Vintage

I just discovered Passport Vintage a month or two ago and I’ve been in love ever since. I got the cutest top from their store when it was located on the East Side (they’ve since relocated to SoCo). They’re also well known for their collection of jeans. You can’t go wrong with getting that fashion lover in your life a new pair of denim jeans to rock for the holidays. Visit their website for shopping.

Feathers Boutique

Vintage clothing is definitely fun to shop – and you can find a great selection of it over at Feathers Boutique. They’re reasonably priced and have really cute pieces on sell at their store. You can also get some online shopping done on their website:

Luxe Apothetique 

This is another nice local store to visit – they have stylish clothes, a great beauty section, and just the most fun gifts collection as well. You can find a lot of great things here. They have two locations – one at the Domain and one on 2nd Street downtown. Check out their website at


Archive is another great local store that’s been nationally recognized. They’re a little out of my price range unfortunately, but for those of you who can afford it – it’s a great place to get some nice vintage clothes. You can get some shopping done on their website:

There’s obviously a lot more stores to shop in Austin, but these are some of the clothing stores that I highly recommend if you’re buying any new fun pieces for that fashionista in your life.
