South Congress wouldn't be the same without our dope neighbors! Like all small businesses, our neighbors on SoCo have felt the effects of this pandemic. As we slowly and safely make our way back out, let's all remember to shop small for the holiday season to help give some much needed support to our local businesses! ⁣

To help do our part, we've been making some surprise deliveries on the block and it looks like our friends at Parts & Labour enjoyed their pie 😂 This iconic Austin establishment has been around since 2004 and hosts Texas-based designers, makers, and artists, providing a space for them to sell their creations. From t-shirts, to candles, coasters, prints, and more, they have a huge selection of super cool, super local items! Show some love!! 💯
Do you have family who loves Austin but can't visit right now? Or maybe a friend who recently moved here but hasn't been able to get the full ATX experience yet? Or even the birthday of an Austin loving friend?

We're here to help!
We've rounded up an ode to Austin gift guide so you can share a piece of the weirdness.

Find the guide here: https://austin.com/these-are-the-most-so-austin-local-gifts-in-the-atx/

Hello world! 'Was such a gorgeous day today! How lucky are we to be living in a place where it's tshirt weather on MLK day?! Remember the things we are lucky enough to enjoy, even as simple as the sun being in your eyes. Also, buy this damn cute sticker from @shawnasmythstudio for four bucks. 😂🌞

"Amabie" are creatures that originate from Japanese legend. They are traditionally regarded as a cultural symbol of protection from sickness. This amabie tee came from our collaboration with our in-house art team @bryan_spear and long time Austin based Japanese musician and visual artist @peelanderz . This limited print run of tees are $26 each. Thank you for trusting us with your art! Stay safe, Austin! Keep those hands clean and keep your breath to yourself! 😷🙏💖

Yes, mother's day was yesterday, but so what?! Honor a mom you know everyday! Buy them a surprise coffee, text them some love, or treat them to a handmade goodie from the shop. They're somehow responsible for keeping another human alive, fed, healthy, loved, educated, and safe while simultaneously TRYING to keep themselves afloat and sane - FOR FREE! Happy day after mother's day to all the moms out there! 🌷❤🌷❤🌷❤🌷

I'm not one to decorate my personal space with inspirational art or wear motivational phrases on my clothes, but there comes a time when you'll reach for anything and everything to get you through a day. For some people, getting through each day means escaping it by indulging in something, anything, like alcohol or even sugar. Is that considered "cheating"? Or is it "surviving "? Maybe a little art will whisper a mantra into my subconscious. There's no harm in trying.
When the world as we know it is changing faster than we can keep up, when people freeze to death in Texas, when we lose friends without being able to say goodbye and everything seems like it's falling apart, rise and grind and just keep on pushing.

We lost another gentle soul this week. RIP Cody, maybe better known to P&L people as the creator of "Remember the Oilers" tee, "Cats Not Kids" and older designs "My Other Car Is My F**king Legs" and "Austin, a Little Blue Oasis in a Big Red State" among others. Cody's been a part of the P&L family since 2005, and our friendship grew as we watched him renovate and open one of my favorite places, Cenoté. I even begged to work there as my "vacation" job just after P&L celebrated it's 10th birthday there. It was the best, although I don't think I passed my beer and wine test....I was still invited to their Christmas bowling party.
As he is survived by his daughter, Lena, her mother, his parents, brother and all of the Cenoté family, please cruise by and pick up lunch or a coffee to support another small business that is such a huge piece of my heart.

02/21/2021

Y'alllllll what a tough week!
I'm pissed and sad and tired, hopeful and lucky yet again. I'm especially happy to have bathed...
The world is shifting and we just gotta hang on and keep hanging on. Love to all, please continue to share hope and love with each other. Thanks to all who are somehow shopping the Ave despite our bizarre circumstances. Our staff and artists appreciate it like you wouldn't believe. Shopping here helps the community, puts $$ in small biz pockets and helps feed and house us all. Keep us in mind, but keep yourself healthy, above all. 💕

OH EM GEEEEEE
A million apologies today as we are experiencing major TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES...
I have been on the phone with about 9 different people at AT&T over the past 24 hours. We still do not have internet service at the shop so I decided to be closed today. This isn't how I saw the end of 2020 going, but maybe it's what I should have expected. Sheesh!
I understand that this has put our customers out who dared to make the journey to SoCo in this rainy weather, our poor vendors have missed a day and a half of sales, our staff lost work hours, and our frame sale was cut short. I really am sorry this is happening, but to make it up to you we'll be EXTENDING THE ART + FRAME SALE through Sunday! Also, please be kind as we still won't have internet service this weekend...UGH!
🙏
Also, CASH PURCHASES WILL BE REWARDED WITH A 10% OFF DISCOUNT and there will be one credit card reader, but the moves will be slow. Think back to a slower paced Austin and pretend it's a throwback! Oh gosh, I am reminded to still be grateful to have a job and that this situation is temporary. The only thing that matters is that we stay safe and as healthy as possible.
✨🧨
Goodbye old year!
Happy new year! 🎉🕛
