Thanks Lynn, via Facebook, via Yelp, for hipping me to the fact that West Elm is opening a store in Austin! FINALLY! I could not be more excited unless I were interviewing Candice Olson on July 14th.

Oh, right. I AM interviewing Candice Olson on the 14th!

But I’m still plenty excited about West Elm. The store’s going to be located at the corner of South Lamar and West Fifth Street and it’s scheduled to open this fall.

Happy, happy, joy, joy.
