Upcycle that Costume

Upcycled costumes are important to Kid Frolic Austin.  It’s not always easy to find time to make significant progress in the upcycling department.  It’s time to refocus on what’s important!  In a few days, school will be back in session.  That means Mom, me, can get back to a steady work pace.  I’m very excited and looking forward to having some time to focus on the upcycle/reuse portion of Kid Frolic Austin.  Visit the Calendar here on the website for Open Hours, the unique upcycled items are only available in the studio.

By the way, Kid Frolic takes costume donations:  1107 S. 8th Street, 78704.  Near ish to Lamar Alamo Drafthouse.

Open Studio – what’s it all about

Kid Frolic Austin is a little business that, in addition to having a few name brand specialty items, also offers handmade items.  The hand crafted items are made by Angela at Kid Frolic Austin.  Kid Frolic also offers handmade decorations made by Party at Your Door, another Austin based Mom company.

Instead of a full blown retail shop (hopefully that’s next), Kid Frolic Austin has a studio office space located in a creative warehouse type building which is totally public friendly.  It’s a nice building in a good location just one block off of Lamar at Gibson St.  This is a work space where creating and making happens as well as a shop-shop, similar to a retail setup.  The space is a hybrid work and sell shop, our Studio.  We announce open hours as Open Studio times.

Fairy & Dragon Costume Party!

Five days from now Kid Frolic Austin is teaming up with several local businesses here in Austin for a children’s dress-up party.  We’ll have fairy outfits, dragon capes, and knight costumes too.  We’ll be showing off some of our new costumes, wings, and capes.  So excited to meet Fancy Fluff, bringing bits of organic cotton candy.  Austin Learnshop will be guiding the kiddos with a watercolor activity.

Join us at Toybrary Austin Tuesday, March 28th at 10:30 am.  All kids ages 2-5 welcome.  $7 Stay-and-Play fee for non-members.
