My old friend Craig hosted a fun event at his bar on Rainey Street the other night — a one stop shop for Valentine’s Day shopping! Rainey Street just has a really good vibe, especially when the weather’s just right, and Javelina Bar is one of the coziest little spots on the street. There were several really cool local vendors at the event, but I’ll be highlighting three of my favorites here:
Pretty bouquets created by Roseship Flora…
And super cool organic-inspired pieces from jewelry maker, Catherine Nicole. I’m in love with those cuffs!
Handcrafted artisan chocolate from Arte Y Chocolate
She actually prints designs on the chocolate itself!
All of these vendors are based in Austin, so if you haven’t done your Valentine’s Day shopping yet you should think about spending locally. Of course you could always just take your sweetheart out for burger and beer at Javelina! Sounds pretty good to me. Happy Valentine’s day, y’all.
