First Thursday is a popular monthly event that takes place along South Congress Avenue, generally from Barton Springs Road to Elizabeth Street. It is basically like one big block party where musicians and street vendors gather alongside the South Congress Avenue shops for a fun evening of festivities, and it is perfect for all ages.
On the first Thursday of each month, all of the stores along South Congress that normally close early stay open late (most stay open until 10 p.m!), and may entertain customers with special sales and complimentary drinks or snacks. Some of the restaurants and bars have drink specials. It's a great time for all - come visit us at Co-Star on First Thursday!
Shlomit is a young designer working and living in Tel Aviv. Shlomit creates unique jewelry and accessories which combine a romantic feel with an updated, trendy look. In her designs, she captures daily "snapshots" as if stopping time and turns them into a carefully crafted piece of art: a small bird on a branch, spring flowers blooming, sharp lines and geometric shapes seen on an urban horizon and more. Shlomit's jewelry collection introduces pieces made of gold and silver plated metals combining pearls, semi-precious stones, glass beads and enamel, and unique materials such as wood veneer, formica and textile.
