“Pricey”
Review of Uncommon Objects

Uncommon Objects
Ranked #10 of 124 Shopping in Austin
Attraction details
Reviewed August 18, 2017 via mobile

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 however not only were they out of my price range, but there is very little room to negotiate. The staff is helpful and somewhat knowledgeable. The store is well laid out and clean. Note they are moving to a new location some time in October.

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,

A mix of antique decor and oddities. Price ranges from very reasonable to just above my price range. Enjoyable to spend 30 minutes to an hour just walking around, even if you don't take anything home!

Location is a group antique odd object dealer ship with each area stocked by about 20 something different collector, sellers. No two items/bins were alike and the diversity was off the charts. I remarked to my husband, Hey if I ever need dried bats, I now know where to go. Unless somebody buys them first! The staff is lovely and the people watch is just as fun as the collections of goodities.

Uncommon Objects

Not your typical junk antique store where items are perfectly organized by color, type and style. Every time I have been here it has always been packed with people (mostly tourists) browsing around. I would define this place like as if someone raided your grandmother’s home and sold every little trinket. You can spend hours digging around and even long if you take your parents with you where they will just talked you how they used to use one of these trinkets as a child. If looking for some unusual items for home decor then this place is for you. Enjoy!
