Thrifty Thursday • Gypsies Antiques

Gypsies Antiques
address : 5202 Burnet Rd., Austin, TX 78756
hours :  Sunday - Saturday: 11am - 5:30pm 

Gypsies Antiques is one of the only true antique shops in the area.  There are a lot of antique malls with different vendors, but Debbie, the owner of Gypsies curates everything in the shop.  With a concentration in European furnishings and decor, she takes annual trips to to Europe to find the best, authentic inventory.  This year, she's planning a trip to England, France and Belgium.  Along with these beautiful antique furnishings, she's also got a room full of the most amazing vintage clothes I've seen in town.  50's gowns and gorgeous bags...they're just break-taking.  

Take a look!
The shop is dense with inventory.  There are small vignettes that are very purposefully designed all throughout.
If you make your way to the very back of the store, you'll find a hidden treasure trove of vintage dresses.  I mean really?!

*Cue heart eyeballs popping out of my head*  The details on each of the pieces was so delicate and intricate.  It was the kind of care and precision that's hard to find nowadays.  I could've just stayed and stared at every dress for hours.

Scattered throughout the store are jewelry cases filled with vintage goodness.  I kept getting distracted as I was walking through...so many sparkles!

Be sure to take your time and soak up everything in the store.  You never know what gems you'll find.  Like this gorgeous packaging illustration.

Debbie was such a wonderful host as I snapped away.  There were quite a few customers looking around and she was buzzing through the store answering questions and taking in brand new inventory.  One of the new pieces was already getting some attention by a local interior designer.  I had a great time visiting Gypsies and will definitely pop back in to check out that vintage section in particular!

Also, a fun bonus for y'all.  Debbie is offering a 10% discount to anyone who mentions The Pink Samurai blog at checkout!  How great is that?!  So be sure to stop by Gypsies, take a peek and take advantage of the discount just for you ^_^
