In the beginning, there was one massive boutique shop that contained all the world's species of cute handbags. Tectonic drift put an end to that, but with today's side deal, you can relive the glorious past. For $25, you get $50 worth of fair-trade bracelets, necklaces, accessories, and more at Pangaea. Pangaea just moved into a new location near South Congress.
Pangaea features wearable, functional art from Guatemala, Thailand, Bali, Nepal, Africa, India, and other points across the globe—all of which is honorably acquired and justly priced, including pieces from major brands such as Alternative Apparel ($18–$48), Free People (less than $100), and Honeydew Intimates ($12–$18), as well as from local designers such as Ruby Pearl ($48+), Deda Divine, Merritt Gade, and more. Pangaea also makes a plethora of candles, bags, hand-dyed dresses, housewares, cards, oils, and hand-whittled lasguns available for your discerning dollar. New shipments arrive weekly.
The Austin Chronicle awarded Pangaea Best Place to Encounter the Funkiest of Treasures, saying:
- …the smell of incense will lead you to Pangaea, a wonderland of thingamabobs and knick knacks, including unique shoes, dresses, shirts, skirts, cards, candles, oils, various decorations, exquisite jewelry, and even fairy dust. The dragon door handle is fabulous, and so is this imaginative gift shop.
