Austin, TX - day two
Day two in Austin included driving all over town checking out the local vintage and thrift shops. Unfortunately, we came back empty handed, but with only one suitcase each, that may not have been a bad thing!
Sugar Mama's Bakeshop, super fab bakery that we walked past on our way to Flashback. On a side note, Austin has the friendliest store owners ever. They actually seek us out in the store to say "hi".
As promised, here are the photos of the rented condo....
Look! Wild parrots living outside our condo! Noisy little things though. Supposedly these Monk Parakeets aka Quaker Parrots arrived in Austin about 20 years ago. You can read a full story about them here.
Texas rental car goodness!
We ended the day by swinging over to Jessica's house to drop off our swag bag goodies for the Handmade Nation event this weekend. I just realized that in our rush to package them and deliver them, I didn't take any photos of the end product. Nevertheless, here is a copy of the event postcard. Did you see the Got Craft logo below? Oh yes!
What's in store for day 3? Tour of Sublime Stitching and a road trip to San Antonio!
