Visiting Austin? Hit the North Loop Strip!
If you are visiting Austin for SXSW, ACL, Austin Psych Fest, Fun Fun Fun or just for the heck of it, don’t forget to take a little time off to do some vintage shopping: Blue Velvet is a great place to find something unique and “Austin”-y to take home with you that won’t cut into your beer money too much! Racked named Blue Velvet “one of the very best vintage shops in Austin” for their 2012 “Where To Score Vintage Clothes in Austin” SXSW guide.
Our shopping district on North Loop Boulevard is a great destination that is hoppin’ with independent, locally-owned businesses. With SIX vintage stores in a two block radius, North Loop is truly the “Vintage Row” of Austin! Blue Velvet is located in the mid-century-era Highland Plaza Shopping Center at North Loop and Guadalupe. Right next door to us is fantastic open-24-hours Epoch Coffee, and on the other side is the powerhouse all-vinyl Breakaway Records. North Loop is also home to bars like The Tigress, restaurants (Foreign & Domestic), and gastropubs such as The Work Horse and DrinkWell.
