When it comes to finding that perfect, one-of-a-kind gift or accessory, sometimes it's good to think outside the box. And in Austin, the "Keep It Weird" city, where better to look than with the local, LGBTQ+-owned businesses? These small shops offer a wide range of unique and personalized gifts, from colorful and quirky jewelry to more classic and subtle designs.
Think of it like a treasure hunt, but instead of just finding something cool, you'll also be supporting the LGBTQ+ community in Austin by putting your money back into the community. And that's a win-win. Rise Market is a great starting point, where you can browse through a diverse selection of handmade jewelry made by LGBTQ+ artists and creators. Or check out other local markets around town to discover even more options.
So next time you're on the hunt for a special something, remember to shop small, shop local and shop LGBTQ+-owned. Your gift will be all the more meaningful for it.
