Austin Creative Cool at Studium

Austin gets a lot of praise for nurturing a creative community. In a bright and airy storefront on east 5th street, you’ll find a prime example in Studium, a collaborative retail and events space. Studium is home to Punctum Records and Books, Byron & Blue, Stowe Provisions, and Attendance Records. This group started out as friends, who hung out often at the neighboring Brew & Brew. Through discussing their various business ventures, they realized their ideas could complement each other and collaborated on the space.

Punctum Records is a vinyl record label and imprint of the larger book publisher Punctum Books. Aside from offering their own publishings, Punctum also curates other records and books available in the store. When you visit, feel free to put some records on to listen to. You can also find releases from Attendance Records, which is a non-profit that helps students produce their own albums by connecting them with local writers, artists, and musicians.


The store has plenty of trendy textiles and home goods.

The Byron & Blue boutique features vintage and handmade apparel, gifts, and home goods from local and national sources. Some items may not come from Texas but they all have an Austin feel for sure. From the rustic scented candles to the southwestern print textiles, you can be sure to find something hip. In its own little room, sits the leather goods studio Stowe Provisions. Here you’ll find handmade leather wallets, belts, suspenders, and cuffs in rustic and unique designs.


Studium gives you a unique chance to check out a live event while you shop.

Studium also offers additional seating for next door’s Brew & Brew, which really contributes to the laid back atmosphere. Few other retail shops offer up a place where you would actually want to hang out. This area of the shop also features a stage, where on some days you can catch a live music show or literary reading, usually by Punctum Records and Books artists.
