Attention to all who have vintage clothing buying obsessions — a new gem has popped up in South Austin. Stardust Vintage features garments, shoes, accessories, and memorabilia spanning from the 1920s-1990s, and has a little something for everyone who loves sifting through nostalgic treasures. The new shop hosts multiple vendors, meaning each section of the store has something different to offer, catering to the tastes of all types of vintage lovers.
We joined Stardust Vintage for a kickoff party at the new shop at 2810 Manchaca Rd. (near South Lamar Boulevard). The otherworldly celebration included performances by local musicians, galaxy-themed body painting, tarot readings, and local brews while bringing together some of Austin's quirkiest stylish individuals.
