Sign in the window

Rue’s Antiques recently left the premises at 1500 South Congress. The windows have now been papered over and there’s a sign declaring this large storefront to be the future home of Tesoros. Let us hope so. Tesoros Trading Company is one of the institutions (along with Las Manitas and Escuelita del Alma) scheduled to be displaced in order to make way for a hotel megaplex. If downtown becomes nothing more than chain retailers, giant hotels, and habitations for the rich, there won’t be much there there but, if we can count on what the sign in the window says, there will continue to be some there there south of the river.

Update: The June 22 Austin Business Journal (byline A. J. Mistretta) confirms this news and expands upon it.
