Austin, Texas and online
say Hi to Kristin who's back with this Austin Store Review. Whaddya think?
Visiting Aviary is like going over to your very stylish, well-traveled friend's house. And that may be just what owners Marco Fiorilo and Shanna Eldridge were going for when they opened the store in South Austin. Items for sale are from all over the world, handpicked by Marco and Shanna while -- you guessed it -- traveling.
With corners of the store set up as sort of mini-rooms that show off modern and vintage furniture, pillows, dishes, and tables, Aviary is so inviting. You want to sit down, relax, and convince yourself that spending your whole paycheck here would be just fine.
There are also things for sale in Aviary that are meant to make you look good, like gorgeous jewelry and handbags in rich colors. But no matter what you wind up buying here, you're going to come out with something unique and well-made -- and you'll be glad Marco and Shanna decided to share the treasures they've found in faraway places.
