Maya Star, a women’s boutique on South Congress Avenue in Austin, will close after nearly 30 years of business. The boutique, owned by Maya Krauss, offers clothing, jewelry, bags and shoes.

“Thank you, Austin, for embracing us, for growing with us and for allowing me to be a part of your lives through Maya Star,” Krauss wrote on Facebook. “This isn't just a goodbye; it's a celebration of all the memories we've created together and the anticipation of those yet to come.”

The boutique joins other longtime South Congress businesses, such as Lucy in Disguise With Diamonds, in closing its doors as the street changes.

Maya Star is open until the end of January for a fixture sale.
