This was our first trip to the new location--good to see it off South Congress. There is more space in the shop, and the parking is so much easier! We will stop here again when we are in the area. The new place has much...More

I absolutely love this store. They truly have some unique finds and stray away from tacky knick knacks. The set up of the store brings you in without getting you too lost (unlike a lot of antique malls). I could easily spend an afternoon here.

This place is just as weird as it promises to be. There are extremely unique items, including a gaggle of taxidermy animals dressed and styled like dolls. Everything was really pricey so we weren't able to purchase anything, but it was fun to look. Staff...More

This antique store does indeed have unique things. However they are quite pricey. The location isn’t near any of the other Austin attractions. The trip advisor map shows it on south congress. However if you google map it, you will see it is a car...More

The store is really quite fascinating. There is just so much stuff that it can take a good hour to try and see most of it and even then you will miss stuff. Even if you are not going to buy anything, it is still...More

My niece and I were visiting Austin and she wanted to go to this store because she heard about it from an online blogger. The parking lot in front was very small so we went to the back of the building. The road was very...More

First of all, this shop has recently moved. It is no longer on South Congress. Check their website for the new location. It was not as convenient for us to visit at this new location but it was still worth a visit. The owner was...More

As the only antique place on South Congress, the price have gone up quite a bit at Uncommon Objects. The selection is still wonderful and it looks like they are constantly getting new items. I found a few things that I found that I liked...More

It's an interesting place with lots to look at, some junk and some good stuff but all presented well, don't think you will find any bargains. But there are lots of fragile items and with young kids it can be a challenge,
