A Maidzing's skilled staff pampers threads by thoroughly washing, drying, and hanging or folding them, while they treat busy clothing caretakers to pickup and delivery services throughout north Austin. Tide original-scent detergent purges grime from ornate Renaissance fair outfits, and Bounce dryer sheets leave dandy duds silky smooth and fresh. A Maidzing also separates clothes into color-appropriate groups, preventing unwanted crosspollination by festive day-glo headbands or Christmas sweaters ornamented with beets. Typical turnaround is 24 hours, but A Maidzing Laundry Service can provide same-day pick-up for laundry delivered before 10 a.m.

Visit one of The Peddler Show Tour's events, and you'll likely see some smiling faces among the other shoppers in attendance. It seems like there's nearly always someone grinning widely, having just discovered a perfect gift. It might be a necklace from Nan's Precious Pearls, a bottle of lotion from Salve All Natural Skin Care, or a tin of indulgent sweets from The Caramel Candy Co. Or maybe it's all of the above.
The Peddler Show Tour has been connecting Texan shoppers with boutique gifts and housewares for well over three decades, but the show has never been stronger than it is today, with 26 events hosted annually across the state. Even frequent shoppers can find something new on each excursion, since hundreds of different merchants and boutiques apply to participate. While many come for the clothing, jewelry, and household items, others stop by to sample gourmet foods or purchase a bed frame made of fudge.
