The full she-bang from our Grand Opening at the Lomography Gallery Store Austin!

6

True to our new home, the Lomography Gallery Store Austin kicked things off with a fete in support of all things analogue, and all things local!

The food was just right, the drinks we’re flowing, the music played and friends were all around… thank you so much to the 375+ of you who came by to properly welcome Lomography to Austin, Texas!

Austin and Lomography are surely a match made in heaven and our Grand Opening party was pure celebration of all the analogue this town has to offer… not to mention the one of a kind business that make Austin special and unique.

Live music by Austin’s own White Ghost Shivers
Post toast number and cake presentation by Austin’s own Jiggle Watts
45s spinning by Austin’s own sock-hop resident DJ Gabe
A custom cake that looks as good as it tastes from Sugar Mama’s bakeshop

Check out all the analogue photos from the night right here!

And who could forget our awesome mugshot photobooth! A few of you guys were just a little too good at this.

Get a taste of the action as it happened from our live reports throughout the night:

And here’s your chance to see the finished space without so many people crammed inside. We’re so proud at how beautiful it all turned out, and hope you will come and see for yourself if you haven’t already!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
