C O M ROUND TOP PHOTO COURTESTY OF THE DISTILLERY MARKET TREASURE HUNTER Even for the heartiest shoppers, the biannual Round Top Antiques Week can be daunting, with miles of treasures in fi elds, barns and more. For Catelyn Silapachai, owner of The Distillery Market—purveyor of Silapachai's original and vintage jewelr y—it's shopping heaven. She grew up in the antiquing world, accompanying her mother on sourcing trips to Europe for her Dallas antiques business. Silapachai's extensive knowledge of Round Top's many vendors, antiques and collectibles makes her the perfect guide. For September's fall market, she's once again offering her custom private day tours (no more than four people per excursion). Looking for that just-right on-trend Turkish rug, African raffia wall hangings or a new addition to your jadeite collection? She'll ask for your Pinterest board, pre-scout the selections and take you straight to the perfect vendors ("So far, I've never not found what someone's looking for"). Want a fun mother-daughter day or a couple's excursion? Silapachai will design a day around market highlights, complete with a picnic lunch and a celebratory glass of bubbly at the historic Prost Wine Bar and Patio before heading back to Austin with a carload of newly purchased treasures. Sept. 17-29, tours start at $375, –KB GIVING BACK STAYING UPBE AT The Mrs are taking their positive musical message to children through The Kindness Campaign, a nonprofi t that tackles bullying in schools. By Kathy Blackwell Austin's all-female band The Mrs have reached thousands of women across the country through their songs and videos embracing self-love. Now they're doing the same for local children through an anti-bullying program with the Austin school district called The Kindness Campaign (, which was started in 2016 for elementary school students by the band's drummer, philanthropist Andra Liemandt. This fall, the nonprofit, whose partners include ZACH Theatre and Kind Bars, will expand into middle schools with a program called Kindnesspalooza, featuring The Mrs and special musical guests, inspirational speakers and much more. "It's filled with music and purpose, and the schools can get a lot out of it," says Liemandt, who was moved by statistics showing that suicide caused by bullying is one of the leading causes of death for ages 10-24. Liemandt is passionate about her band as well. The Mrs released their eponymous debut album this spring, complete with a video premiere on for their first single, "Blink of an Eye," which has garnered more than 100,000 views. In typical superwoman fashion, the four busy band members wrote all of the songs for the album over two weekends, including the new single "Somewhere to Go." Adds Liemandt: "It's a song about being there for each other and loving on each other so much that you know strength you didn't know before." Rugs are especially p yn popular on Catelyn Silapachai's tours. Silapachai's tours. EXCURSIONS From left: Larissa Ness, Jenny Mason, Andra Liemandt and Mandy Prater
