The sign worked

Austin Baby StoreIt caught my eye and it made me stop to learn more. And it did all this when I was on my way to the Frisco Shop in hopes that there were still breakfast biscuits to go with that Top Chop’t. The colorful poultry, longhorn, and sheep are in front of the Austin Baby store on Koenig near Burnet. The people here seem to know nearly everything there is to know about cloth-diapering, diaper service, and using baby slings and swaddling, just for starters, and they want to share that knowledge. I’ve found Austin Baby just as it’s about to move to larger quarters, but there’s a mailing list available for keeping people informed of the latest. The motto of Austin Baby is “natural parenting for natural babies.” I forgot to ask who designed and made the sign that made me stop in the first place. I love these features of Austin’s people-made landscape.

    Thank you very much for this information. Is he by any chance related to Mary Azarian, the woodcut artist?

    YEs, that’s his mom, his dad is the venerable Tom Banjo, who inexplicably these days, and puts on some great folk shows across the country. You should look him up as well.

    How neat! Thanks again for the enlightenment. Austin’s pretty far from Vermont, so it’s been a surprise to learn that there *is* a connection.
