There’s a lot going on during the next few weeks, with festivals, grand openings and celebrations galore.
• Stella’s Women’s Fashion Consignment Boutique is having its One Year Anniversary celebration at 5 p.m. Oct. 20 at Nate’s.
Owned by Lisa and DJ Sartorio, the couple moved from Chicago back to native Austin to be closer to children and grandchildren. It was then that Lisa knew the time had come to put her two loves –fashion and finding a good deal – together.
Stella’s is named after Lisa’s past fashionable Chihuahua.
Stella’s partners with Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center for all donation purposes. At the end of each consignment period, unsold items are donated to the shelter.
• Another Buda celebrant is Buda Postal Station, which recently celebrated its first anniversary under new management. Mike Pauzer took over the reins of the business in September 2015. Pauzer has lived in Circle C in southwest Austin for 21 years. He purchased the business, which was started in 2003, from its founders.
At this time, Buda Postal Station is re-branding itself as Buda Print & Ship.
• Local voters have a chance to check out candidates for the Buda City Council as the Chamber of Commerce puts on its Candidates Forum, 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 24 in the city council chambers.
