Shinola Pop-up Shop: Starts March 7th at SoCo Location
We’re so happy to be partnering up with our friends from Detroit this month! The Shinola Pop-Up Shop is opening just in time for SXSW at our South Congress store – located near the heart of the festivities.
Open daily from 11am to 7pm starting Friday, March 7th through March 16th, the shop is fully stocked with a wide selection of the classic watches we love, along with a variety of bicycles, journals and leather items for men and women – all made in the USA.
The Shinola team arrived in Austin earlier this week to build the pop-up installation and window display featuring the Bixby vintage-inspired commuter bicycle, a nod to Austin’s increased focus on alternative transportation. You can’t help but notice the beautiful-yet-functional bike in the new-for-spring navy color.
The reps will be sticking around SoCo on March 13th and 14th from 12pm-5pm if you want to chat with the experts and get some help in selecting the right watch, wallet or perhaps even a bicycle! During the pop-up, you can also virtually share your experiences on social media using available iPad minis.
If you find yourself downtown, pop into our Men’s and Flagship stores where we have more quality Shinola products available year round.
With only two storefronts opened in Detroit and New York City, we’re lucky to offer Shinola Detroit at By George – and we’re even luckier to have their pop-up shop in Austin!

Still searching for gifts this Valentine’s Day? Or just want to treat yourself? This Thursday and Friday, February 13-14, By George has planned trunk shows featuring some of the things we love so that you’re sure to find something special.
Jessica Rusch is dear to our hearts and part of the By George family—she was a long-time sales associate at our Flagship location. We’re so happy to have her back with us to launch her first jewelry collection! Her bracelet line featuring artisan trade beads balances bold color with muted pastels and mixes metals with uncommon shapes. Each bracelet is one-of-a-kind and handmade right here in Austin.
Cambria Handmade Leather Goods
You can see the labor of love that goes into each and every hand-cut and hand-sewn piece made by Cambria Harkey, which can take up to 15 hours to make.
Another Austin designer we’ve carried for more than two years at our Men’s and SoCo stores, Cambria’s pieces are inspired by her childhood summers in New Mexico where she became attached to her saddle bags after riding horses from dawn until sunset every day. The trunk show will feature an expanded offering of men’s and women’s pieces along with classic Cambria pieces in unique colors and new leathers. A By George exclusive is a custom clutch recently designed for Emma Thompson for the red carpet.
Men’s + Flagship
The Dowry is new line of fine jewelry by Courtney Jacobs Leibman with which we have recently fallen in love. It’s an eclectic mix of effortlessly cool products: modern, timeless and personalized. The trunk show will feature an expanded selection of all her pieces and Courtney will offer custom, on-site engraving on her signature yellow, white and rose gold bar necklaces during the two-day event. Just in time for gift giving!
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? It’s easy to stop by this popular food trailer when you’re at our South Congress location, but for all of you Flagship-frequenters, you can purchase some of their top-selling cupcake flavors in a six-pack box.
