I bought this as a gift for my sister who does beading. I went with her to the store. Wow. I really loved the setup and the very friendly, knowledgable, staff. My visit there inspired me to look into doing some beadwork of my own! Should I start this new craft, I'll definately visit them again.

The people were wonderful, more than helpful. I was buying for gifts and had no experience and was given wonderful ideas and a promise of help whenever I need it.

From Our Editors

Over the last decade, Legendary Beads has sprouted from its humble beginnings—a small storefront with seed beads in terra-cotta pots—into a jewelry-making hub in the midst of a shopping center. Though their digs are much larger, the staff prides themselves on preserving the laid-back South Austin vibe that they cultivated at their original location. The shop glimmers with more than 50 types of beads, stones, pearls, and gems—from amber and coral to jade—which are color-coded and exhibited on easy-to-shop displays. The inventory continues to grow as the staffers bring in the latest beading trends in addition to specific stones and gems requested by their clients. Fostering a sense of community, they welcome guests to have a seat at their beading table to ask questions about certain bead styles, jewelry-making techniques, and which beads taste best with barbecue sauce.

To facilitate jewelry making, they stock chains and tools, such as wire cutters and round-nose pliers, and a certified gemologist leads a jewelry-making and design class, limiting attendance to five students to ensure personalized instruction.

Austin Shopping Guide

For decades now, Austin has had a reputation as a funky, off-the-beaten-path sort of place that embraces the unusual. The Austin shops of today are diverse collections of artists and shop owners who are committed to “keep Austin weird”, offering items to the public that can’t be found anywhere else.

For clothing with a relaxed designer touch, explore Congress Street. From 11th Street down to Cesar Chavez Street, this Austin shopping strip is an indie boutique dreamland led by the Dress Shop, which offers simple clothes and accessories that are both modern and timeless. Meanwhile, Stag has a selection of men’s clothing with retro-hip appeal. For a semi-authentic Texas look, hit HEM Jeans, a specialty denim store, Heritage Boots for a pair of hand-stitched originals, and top things off with a Stetson from Hatbox.

If home outfitting is on the list, Finch on West 2nd Street  is one of the more unique home accent stores, while Mercury, also located in the 2nd Street arts district, has items from around the world. For larger home furnishings, The Khazana brings Middle Eastern-inspired furniture to the city.

Those with more eclectic tastes will find themselves drawn to Austin’s 23rd Street Artists Market, an open air arts and crafts showcase that runs every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. If searching for a traditional Austin mall, there are five located throughout the city with one of the most popular being Barton Creek Square Mall located off of Capital of Texas Highway. There are also several outdoor malls, such as The Domain and Hill Country Galleria, which include unique Austin stores as well as national chain favorites.

Whether it’s upscale clothing, special furnishing for the home, or a funky throw pillow in the shape of Elvis, the unique shops in Austin combined with the indoor and outdoor malls have multiple selections to give any home a Texas twist.
