The jewelry is sold throughout Texas and also in four stores outside of the state.

    »Room Service Vintage

    Upon viewing the curious building that houses Room Service Vintage, complete with a rooftop sculpture of a large, purple easy chair, aficionados of retro chic will feel right at home. The furniture department offers the most interesting items in the store. In fact, you will often find some of them reserved as movie props for locally produced films. It also offers a fairly small collection of vintage men's and women's clothing. Whimsical knickknacks from yesteryear abound.

    »Half Price Books

    Out of the several locations in Austin, this Half Price Books is understandably the most artsy and intellectual, given its location just off The Drag and a stone's throw from the University of Texas. A bargain-hunter and book-lover's paradise, the store is arranged into sub-shops, each devoted to a category of books. This isn't the place to find the most up-to-the-minute best-seller or the latest entry in Oprah's Book Club, but it is the spot for an out-of-print, hardbound copy of "The Catcher in the Rye", at half off the cover price. CDs, cassettes and other forms of music, even a huge collection of LPs, can be found in another room. Sit on the floor with a book or search the racks of albums for the one that got warped in high school. Loitering is encouraged. The staff is uniformly well-read and helpful, and they will search the store computer for a specific title upon request.

    »Hyde Park Market, Deli, & Organic Grocery

    Draped in flags from over a dozen countries, Hyde Park Market, Deli, & Organic Grocery is part-gas station, part-corner shop, part-wine & spirits store, part tobacconist, part deli, part organic grocery, and a local cuisine market.  Indeed, the owners have found a way to pack as many varieties of convenience store staples (pork rinds, etc.), hard-to-find grocery items (such as kombucha), and products from local vendors (like Mary Louise Butters Brownies), while still finding a way to allow customers to comfortably maneuver their way through the store.  It truly is a special kind of "stop-n-shop". - Freddie Obregón
