AUSTIN (KXAN) – Austin’s Blue Genie Art Bazaar opened this weekend, they say they have already seen a return after last year’s pandemic shopping spree.
This year, organizers will still offer the online shopping experience launched last year. But those who want to pick the perfect gift in person should have a freer time while shopping on the spot off Airport Boulevard.
“Last year we were able to keep the store open. But we operated under a lot of restrictions, for example in terms of capacity and that people made reservations. This year we’re a little bit easier on that,” said Lani Gonzalez. “We ask for masks of choice. But otherwise it goes back to the shopping experience in the store that people remember from 2019 and before.”
This is Blue Genie’s 21st year.
You can even shop in person on Thanksgiving if you want.
The bazaar is open until Christmas Eve.
