Sea of Shoes Guide to Austin




Best Austin Vintage Shopping:

Feathers Vintage
1700 S Congress Ave 
Austin, TX 78704

I've been a loyal Feathers customer for years and years. Masha and Emily have an amazing eye for buying. Their store is highly edited and I think that is what sets it apart from a lot of other Austin vintage stores. I found amazing stuff on this trip!

Laced With Romance
1601 S First St
Austin, TX 78704

I've shopped from Laced with Romance's Ebay for a long time so I was really excited when they opened up a physical location! Very Austin, lots of witchy cloaks and velvet.

Prototype Vintage Design
1700 S Congress Ave 
Austin, TX 78704

It's right by Feathers and definitely worth a trip in. Great t-shirts.

Moss Vintage
705 B S Lamar
Austin, TX 78704

I've heard wonderful things about it but regrettably have never been in myself. Apparently it is not to be missed, do stop in if you can!


Record shopping:

Friends of Sound
1704 S Congress Ave 
Austin, TX 78704

End of An Ear Records
2209 S 1st St 
Austin, TX 78704

Waterloo Records
600A N. Lamar
Austin, TX 78703

Waterloo and End of an Ear are pricey but good.



My Favorite Places to Eat:

Blue Dahlia Bistro
1115 E 11th St 
Austin, TX 78702

Blue Dahlia is my favorite place. The tartines are all to die for. I love the atmosphere and the patio, very laid back and cozy. I wish I got to Austin all the time just to eat here!

801 S Lamar Blvd 
Austin, TX 78704

This one is super famous and super obvious, I have to put it on here. People say it's the best sushi in the U.S.

4917 Airport Blvd 
Austin, TX 78751

This is also sushi. My boyfriend and I went here several times last summer and loved it every time! I wish I could remember some of the things we ordered, but rest assured, everything is delicious and you will enjoy yourself.

4710 E 5th St
Austin, TX 78702

I personally have not been to Justine's, but I'm told I have to include it in this guide. French food with a cult following.

301 E 6th St 
Austin, TX 78701
Love this place, the restaurant itself is beautiful, the pizza is delicious, but the sides are the best part! Another place that makes me wish I got to Austin more often.

Thanks to the Austin friends who helped me put this guide together! I can't wait to get back!
