Web site finds furnishings, decor + style so Austinites can store small
Furnishing or renovation of your room? Are you freshening up your wardrobe? Say goodbye to evenings lost scrolling through tons of websites and social media accounts.
Attic, a local shopping tool focused on indie businesses, was launched in Texas. It makes finding the right coffee table or handbag so much easier.
This “visual search engine” will help you discover independent shops, vendors and boutiques in the area. This is how you can support local businesses by having a single online target to identify stores and products.
Austin-San Antonio’s top floor includes more than 12,000 furniture, home decor, and clothing / fashion items from over 60 independent stores, from coffee mugs to sideboards to clutches.
The website’s unique technology continuously indexes products from local stores and adds new items daily. Discover great finds while browsing and discover even more by searching for “sunglasses”, “1980s dress”, “mid-century dining room chairs” and “teapot”.
“Shopping locally means that you support the independent retailers who make the community full of character and differentiate themselves from other areas,” says its founder Tarek Anandan. “It also has some nice environmental benefits.”
Attic was founded in 2015 and already exists in major markets such as Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Washington, DC.
The expansion into the Austin-San Antonio area comes at a time when small retailers across the country – brick and mortar stores in particular – are facing extraordinary challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the continued growth trend of large-box, national retailers.
Attic aims to bring thousands of online shoppers to small businesses every month and helps defend against these forces.
Austin and San Antonio shoppers can expect to find treasures from Revival Vintage, American Drifter, Feathers Boutique, Kiss My Att Vintage, Moss Designer Consignment, and Little Stars Vintage, to name a few.
Here you can view a full list of the stores that ATTIC is currently indexing. More local, independent stores are expected to be added in the future.
