On the 3rd Sunday of each month, downtown Austin fashion house Cypress Vanguard opens its doors (&/or courtyard) to patrons who enjoy a classy, casual mix of the co-op’s regular house designers and outside guest artists/vendors. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out, because each month there’s something new to see! Located 1/2 block from the Austin Convention Center and Moonshine, these recurring events are a great addition to your brunch or other weekend plans.
May’s guest designers were Dreaming In Craft, Apocalypse Wow Designs, Sugar Tooth Bakery, and Jennifer Hearts Art. Check out some photos I took of the temporary displays! ❤
Dreaming In Craft, a local business owned by crafter Marci Peterson, had these signature plushies for sale, among lots of cute wearable goodies, seen in the following 2 photos.

Next to Marci’s table in the garden room at CV was Alex Parrish with her pretty, spooky Apocalypse Wow hair flowers and earrings.
Apocalypse Wow Designs specializes in retro-inspired hair flowers with a scary twist. Most pieces include skull or eyeball embellishments!

We not only got to peruse a sampling of guest artists’ wares, but were also treated to some edible awesomeness by Sugar Tooth Bakery! Meghan, the proprietress of this south Austin business, brought in a selection of her vegan desserts — including Tiny Pinies (miniature pineapple upside-down cakes), cupcakes, and chocolate-covered donuts.
