Whether you’re going to Zilker Park for Blues on the Green or catching some rays at Walter E. Long Park, here are a few finds to add to your Austin adventures.

1. Diaper Bag & Tote, $12.50
Mamas still want to look good, and this six-compartment modern diaper and tote bag is a must for all mamas headed to the beach or pool with little ones. Want to add your own personal style? Have the bag embroidered for an additional $12.

2. West Paw Zogoflex Zisc, $15
Why should people have all the fun? Here’s a 100 percent recyclable zisc that is the perfect beach or park accessory for good ol’ Fido. Designed to fly, float, and entertain, it is guaranteed to last against dog damage.

3. Triswim Body Wash, $12
A swimmer’s dream, this body wash gently removes chlorine, chlorine odor, and salt. It contains organic aloe vera as well as pro-vitamins B5 and E, which cleanse and moisturize skin.

4. 60-Quart Wheeled Coleman Cooler, $49.95
Give your back a break and allow the 60-quart Coleman cooler to carry all of your food and beverages for the summer. Heavy-duty wheels roll over any terrain; the hinged lid has four cupholders, and the top is sturdy enough to sit on if you need a break from all the walking.

5. Biria Cruiser, $490
The Biria Citibike commuter series features an easy-board step-through frame that allows the rider to wear any summer dress or maxi with ease (men's model shown). The build includes a frame only six inches from the ground, so stability, style, and swagger are sustained. This bike was tricked out by the folks at Windmill Bicycles ( and includes the following custom items:

Brooks B17 Women's saddle $140

Brooks leather saddles have been made in England since 1866 and come in men's and women's shapes as well as in several colors and styles. The leather is durable, molds to your fanny, and will outlive you if you take care of it.

Windmill grips $35

Hand-stamped leather grips are customized and sealed/dyed by owner Sarah Goeth Mammel; patterns and words can be stamped. The leather is durable, comfortable, and as southwestern as you can get.

6. YNOT Cycle "The Kassi" pannier bag, $80
