There aren't any over-the-counter fencing suppliers in Austin. There used
to be one in Houston (International Sporting Goods), but 
a. I don't know if they're still around, and 
b. they were mostly concentrated on speed-swimming and soccer the last time
I was in there, the fencing stuff was pretty limited.

HOWEVER, do not despair. The USFA Summer National Fencing Championships '98
is happening here in Austin on July 4 & 5. I expect that there will be a
number of vendors on site who should have a *wide* selection of equipment
for sale.
