Austin shopping

People don't come to Austin for big-name shopping—that's reserved for Dallas and Houston, land of the galleria malls. But that's just what people love about Austin. The city's independent spirit makes for quirky finds and one-of-a-kind local designs. Head to South Congress for vintage clothing and cool retro furniture. Cowboys—along with a lot of urban dwellers who love them—can find their fair share of western gear in the stores that dot the city. Austin is also home to one of the country's top independent bookstores, BookPeople, as well as the nation's flagship Whole Foods, which is so big they distribute maps at the entrance. Yum.
