Exotic gifts & bellydancing from Arabic Bazaar on Wordfree Wednesday


01-2014-12-07 15.17.49

Last weekend, I visited the Arabic Bazaar in Austin for the first time, and I  immediately knew it had to be featured here on A is 4 Austin. I  had planned to put it on Find it in Austin Fridays. It is a great place to shop for unique imported gifts (everything here is handpicked by the owner, Zein, on her trips to Egypt, Syria, Morocco and Lebanon. No “Made in China” imitations here!) And it’s a place to find authentic belly dance classes for all levels. So it would fit.

But when I looked at my photos, I changed my mind. The photos tell the story of this beautiful place better than words possibly could. So here, without too many more words, is Arabic Bazaar.
