I consider myself very lucky to now call Austin home. To be honest, moving here from Los Angeles made me a little nervous. I was worried that I would miss the fast paced lifestyle I was accustomed to. I was wrong! Austin has definitely proven itself and surprises me everyday. It seems like there is always a new restaurant to try, a new shop to explore, and a new small business owner to meet and the best part about it that everyone wants to help everyone else succeed. I really could not imagine launching Stone Textile in any other city. Today will be the first of many “Keeping It Local” posts where I highlight a favorite Austin based company so you can learn about the wonderful people that also call Austin home.
I had the pleasure of touring the Loot Vintage Rentals warehouse this week. Anna and her sister-in-law Rhoda started their company last year and have rapidly become one of the go to wedding vendors in Austin. They source “the best of the best” in antique furniture and accessories and rent them out for local weddings, events, and photoshoots (genius idea!). We are in the beginning stages of planning our next photo shoot and I knew that I wanted to incorporate vintage furniture into the mix. Take a look at a few of the pieces I am thinking about for the shoot and make sure to visit the Loot Vintage Rentals website for more beautiful things.
