Along with Tex-Mex and live music, there’s a big vintage scene in Austin. Aficionados will want to comb all of South Congress and South First Street, but if you’re looking for a really great edit, go to Feathers. The shop, which has been open since 2005, is neatly organized, beautiful, and well-run (by two women, one of whom is a Texas native). It’s worth a stop for vintage-virgins, too—the clothing and jewelry selection is very accessible, and there are always pieces here that are conveniently easy to work into an everyday, modern wardrobe.
