Old Bakery

The Old Bakery & Emporium is a historic building located in Downtown Austin. Local artists and crafts people keep the Emporium full of unique and one of a kind items. They provide a Visitor Information Center, Art Gallery exhibiting local artists 50 and older, and houses the Lundberg-Maerki Historical Collection.

They are run by the City of Austin to help senior citizens supplement their income by selling their handmade crafts or artwork in exchange for volunteering 8 hours a month. There is no charge to rent space, simply volunteering does the trick. But you do not have to consign in order to volunteer, anyone can volunteer. Some of their best volunteers do not consign. Stop by to shop or volunteer at the Old Bakery.
