adventures in austin!

Mercury Design Studio
Where do I begin? Mercury Design Studio totally kicks ass. It has everything from $5 60's-esque bangles to $5,000 retro chic sofas. This is the perfect shop to find unique gifts: stationary, local jewelry, books, makeup bags, graphic pillows, stuffed squirrels (....), you name it!
What I loved most about this place was its eclectic and vibrant collection of both new and old, blended together beautifully through vivid arrangements. Also, I always appreciate a shop where each little nook or room in the place has its own style and identity.
Oh, and the staff's real friendly, too!
