Moving from Oregon to Austin to be closer to their first grandchild, Teri and Bob Shamlian found the perfect new home in Sweetwater. One must-have was a three-car garage to accommodate Teri’s glass art studio.
One of Sweetwater’s earliest residents, Adriana Smith, started crafting gentle artisanal soaps just for her family. By popular demand, her passion grew into Austin’s Wild Thistle Soap Co., now offering a wide variety of all-natural body and home products.
To help with adoption expenses for their first child, Sweetwater residents Cassie and Colin Bauer are selling their handmade Adirondack chairs. Priced $275 each, or $500 for a pair, they’re the perfect way to enjoy Sweetwater’s scenic Hill Country environment.
