Spider House Cafe
Upon my arrival in Austin, I wasted no time applying for jobs. After researching the best vintage stores in Austin, I hit Guadalupe St, otherwise known as "The Drag", where vintage stores reign supreme. I went into each store with a confident attitude and a smile, hoping that someone would respond "Yes, we are hiring." Although I left almost empty-handed, I did manage to snag this new necklace from Buffalo Exchange, while discovering my new favorite Austin Hangout; Spider House Cafe. The Cafe/ Bar off of Guadalupe was the most eclectic and eccentric bar that I've been to in awhile. I sat at an old wrought iron table with mis-matched plastic chairs. To my right was an old bathtub in the middle of the courtyard, and to my left was a vintage soda vending machine. Relaxed Indie-tunes played from the speakers while I sipped a glass of wine and people watched (more like tattoo watched; nearly everyone there was inked in body art and stories... can't wait to get my own!). Long story short, I absolutely loved the vibe at Spider House!
