Austin’s Tesoros Trading Company is closing on South Congress

Tesoros Trading Company — a local treasure that has sold artisan crafts from around the world for more than three decades — is closing its South Congress store.

Unlike many small retailers that have left South Congress Avenue because of skyrocketing rent, owners Jonathan Williams and Kisla Jimenez said they are simply ready to “retire” the shop and focus on different things.

“We are so grateful for the opportunity to have the business in Austin, and for the reception that we have received,” Jimenez said. “We really hand-selected everything we sold, and we truly loved seeing the joy and the creativity of local artisans. It has been gratifying to support that craftmanship and to encourage the production of handmade things.”
