Shopping Small this Saturday

Posted: Updated:

If you have a sweet tooth, consider Robert . I ended up doing my internship at Vino Vino," said Howard.


Robert still spends some time in the kitchen, but most days he's serving dessert curbside.

Howard said, "Everyone loves creme brulees, but no one is doing this right now."

The mobile cart's been around for less than a year.

"Instead of asking what is a creme brulee, they'll say, I'll take two or three," Howard said.

This is also the best time to be on South Congress because it's small business Saturday--a day dedicated to shopping local.

"We picked up a few good things," said one shopper.

Another shopper added, "We're definitely going to the smaller shops."


Last year's records show more than 100 million people came out to shop at independently-owned small businesses.

"I love it. Everything's different. Everything has it's own flavor," said another shopper.

An Austinite said, "We have so much support of the city for local business, and I think it keeps it unique. It keeps it thriving and it keeps people that have creative ideas, you know, in business."

"I will not go to the big chain stores and things like that," Howard said.

Which is why Robert is so grateful others do the same, supporting local entrepreneurs and the economy.

Small business Saturday is now in its third year.
