Austin County News Online had such a great response to our Renaissance Fair Ticket Giveaway that we decided to keep the giveaway going!  So, we’re starting our FREE MOVIE TICKET GIVEAWAY!!!   Each week we will be giving away 2 FREE TICKETS to the Westwood Cinema 6 in Brenham, Texas.  All you have to do to enter is go to and sign up.  We also have an image link in the upper right hand corner of Austin County News where you can sign up as well.  Our newsletter goes out every Thursday with the upcoming weeks sales and specials to our growing list of people who are interested in shopping locally.


Shop Austin County was created as an affordable way for our local area businesses to be listed as well as help the area to shop local.  It allows the community the ability to find our local businesses and the sales and specials that they have to offer.

Shop Austin County was created with three main goals in mind:

  1. To let local businesses have an affordable way to reach the community with their services, sales and special promotions.
  2. To provide an online presence for businesses in our area that have no online presence.
  3. To provide Cottage Industries an affordable way to reach the public with their products or services.

So, for just $10 a month, if you have a local business in Austin County or any of the surrounding counties and would like to list it on Shop Austin county, simply go to:
