My Favorite Austin Boutique on Wheels!

Well this is just about the cutest, coolest thing I have ever seen. Confession first: I read about it on Design Sponge and went promptly to the Adelante website for further information. However, Austin is officially in the Texas hill country, so this post is most pertinent to Hill Country House!

Adelante, a shop started over 30 years ago in San Antonio by Pat Taylor Mason is now owned and operated by her daughter, Tricia Mason Roberts. It has been one of my favorite stops for great clothes, jewelry and gifts, for years. I first discovered Adelante in San Antonio, but now try to stop by the Austin shop whenever I am over that way. Tricia has now started Curb Service, a traveling boutique via a decked out Airstream!

I think the concept of a traveling boutique is so, so clever. You can get the full scoop here. The fact that the Airstream is decked out in the latest in design and color, and that you can also shop the latest in fashion...........well, it's just the best of both worlds!

While poking around the web, I also discovered a new friend, The Vintage Laundress. She is also wild about Curb Service and you can read her take on it here. How much fun!!!

  1. Love, love, love this idea!! And all the bright happy colors!!

  2. I can't wait to get back to Austin to see this place! Now if we could have an Airstream like that, we might all like camping.

  3. Just popped over to say hi, so.....HI!!!
    Wow, how come I didn't know about this? You have a pipeline to all the cool stuff and people 'round these parts!

  4. This is so neat! Wish they would head over to NC!

  5. This is such a great idea! Fun fun!

  6. You know my love for airstreams and I know your love for design so here's the best of both worlds. Let's head to Austin and scope it out.
    Happy Birthday today!

  7. great post, mom! let's go there next time I'm home...

  8. Thanks for the mention and the new friendship!

  9. Oh my, could anything be more clever?

  10. Wow that looks like so much fun! On one of my recent trips to Austin, I stopped by a shop similar to this one. It was a girl who made very interesting botanical art pieces. She was located on South 1st in a spot w/ some restaurants, but I can't remember the name. It was cool though.

  11. Just think that it's a "Brilliant" idea. Now if it was parked in front of Gardens (my favorite garden boutique) I would be a very happy "camper".
    Great stuff!
