20 years ago my Mom made one of the scariest decisions that she had been faced with in her whole entire life: to move North to 5341 Burnet Road, or to temporarily close our family business in order to continue her search for a South Austin location.
“BURO” at that time didn’t have a cool name – there were no cool bookstores, no hip or local restaurants. Sundays at The Little Longhorn were the most happening days once Chicken S#!t Bingo started.
We had to make our own coffee, can you believe it? We had been on South Congress for almost 7 years and we were worried our clients may not want to travel North; plus – the walk in traffic on “SOCO” kept us pretty busy.
As a student at McCallum High School at the time I thought the move would be great! I could walk up Houston and be at the shop to help daily on most days. Now 20 years later it was one of the best moves our family has ever made.
Thanks for shopping local and supporting BURO‘s best antiques and collectibles shop!
