The Looking Glass - Buda, Texas

I went for a drive a few weeks ago.
There is a little road out behind where we live in the South part of Austin and I always wondered where it went.

Well the answer to that is Buda, TX.

I made a right hand turn going west on Main Street and 'lo and behold, Historic Downtown Buda.
Train tracks and the library on one side of the street, rows of old buildings turned into shops on the other.
Sounds like heaven to me!

Today's post is about The Looking Glass.
As you walk up to the door you are greeted by the White Rabbit.
Looking quite dapper as expected!

Once you enter you are transported to an amazing land of vintage, jewelry, gifts and lots of Alice in Wonderland sights!

The vintage items are so wonderful.
Clothing, household, frames, decorative, you name it.
Be sure to check all the nooks and crannies, there are lots of goodies in this shop!

Now near and dear to my heart, jewelry!
Some new and LOTS vintage.
Its on the counters and in the counters and on the wall and on the tables and don't forget to look in all the drawers!

If you are looking for something sweet for a gift or even for yourself there is not a shortage of good things to be had!

Soaps and lotions and candles...

The sweetest baby gifts...

and lots of new items for your kitchen.

Buda is an easy drive from Austin.
Just head south on 35 and exit on Main Street.
To get to The Looking Glass make a right on Main Street and keep going until you get to the Historic District. When you pass over the train tracks you know you are close.
Then just look for the White Rabbit on the right hand side of the street!

See you in Wonderland!!
