One of the most amazing local artists, Kendra Scott, has a jewelry store next door to Perla’s. Her jewelry is often found in high end stores such as Neiman Marcus, and is spotlighted nonstop in numerous glamour magazines. The best thing about Kendra Scott? Not only are her collections gorgeous, she is a dynamic person who has given back to the community. A great example of what makes Austin special and unique.
TIP: Mon-Sat 10am-8pm; Sun 11am-6pm. Online shopping available.
Across the street is the new Tom’s Store which launched one of its first Coffee Shop Cafes right here in Austin. Although they are not an Austin based company, we can adopt them. Their mission is amazing. The company started on a concept in 2006…buy a pair of shoes for the needy with each purchase. The concept of the new coffee shop is similar. Buy 1 cup of coffee and Tom’s will provide a day’s worth of water to the underprivileged. With this amazing concept…why not buy 2 cups of coffee? It’s a perfect way to keep energized to explore the rest of South Congress Avenue’s shops.
TIP: Cafe Open Mon-Fri 6am-8pm, Sat 7am-9pm and Sun 7am-8pm. Shop open Mon-Fri from 9am-8pm, Sat 9am-9pm and Sun 9am-8pm.
