This store was really interesting and I wish we could've spent more time looking around but we arrived about 45 minutes before closing time. As others have said, there are SO many items, I feel like I could've went through it 3-4 times and still...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,

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!

Browsing through Uncommon Objects was a highlight of my visit to Austin. The store is filled to the brim with interesting and kitschy objects. I appreciated the randomnesses of all the objects even through I wouldn't buy most of it.
