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,

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.

Really cool store. You'll see things you didn't know existed and some really cool jewelry. It's a must see place

Nothing makes you feel less welcome than being called out in front of a large crowd for having a small backpack purse. I WANT to give this store a high rating just because of all of the interesting things inside, but one of the employees...More
