“Right paw raised brings money and happiness”

neko1.jpgAnd the left paw raised supposedly brings people and customers. To see what the colors mean, and White Crane on South Congress carries six, you must go there yourself. These particular lucky cats are stocked in three sizes, and the smallest size is going fastest, replacing Happy Meal sourvenirs as monitor-top mascots for some.

White Crane on Saturday was doing a fine business in selling filmy beaded and sequined garments from India to sullen teen-agers from Kansas accompanying their parents to Saturday’s football game. Other hot sellers were red paper envelopes stamped in gold with prosperity symbols such as goldfish.

Where Twin Oaks Hardware used to hang its posters from the old Live Oak festivals in Stacy Park there are now private consultation rooms, and on Saturday it was reported at the service counter that they were booked up, for acupuncture sessions I suppose. White Crane Pharmacy is a branch of the Austin Academy of Oriental Medicine.
