You’ll have to stay home with the Armadillo. After more than four decades as a holiday shopping tradition in Austin, the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar has announced there will be no in-person event this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
An online shopping site has been launched for those who still want to buy gifts from some of the Bazaar’s long-standing merchants. The Armadillo Art Concierge, at artconcierge.armadillobazaar.com, is a searchable site “allowing customers to browse and shop from the award-winning Armadillo Bazaar artists using curated searches or personal shopper concierge services,” according to a press release.
“Although we cannot safely have an event this season, we hope to still shine a light on all the incredible artists who, like so many other small businesses, lost their income when art shows across the country were cancelled
