This place is amazing! I could spend hours looking at the objects packed into every nook and cranny of this place. The place is the perfect way to spend an day if you are even remotely interested in curios and antiques. There is truly something for everyone.
The floor design and layout was perfect to keep a glow flow as you make your way through the maze of curios. The displays were set up with color schemes that provided an inviting feel and entertained the senses.
Save up if you need to because you will want to leave with something to remember you time browsing through history and humor. Some of the prices were a little more than I had expected but I didn’t leave empty handed.
We didn’t not have any spiritual encounters on this trip. I suspect that there were too many visitors. I will go on another day other than the weekend next time I am here.

The aesthetic of this place is phenomenal. The different presentations and collections make you feel in a vintage madhouse. The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is that it seems more like a museum than an antique shop to buy things.

If you Google "Weird things to do in Austin"(or something like that), Uncommon Objects will likely come up.

If you've never been inside an antique store, this place will be novel and exciting.

If you're a geeky weirdo like me who has been to many a antique store in America, small and large, this place is still relatively fun but not thrilling and not the best use if your time if have limited vacation time in Austin.

If dead animals creep you out, such as dead mice heads glued onto toy dolls and holiday cards, then you might want to avoid this place.

Friendly and welcoming staff! Amurr'ca!

OMG, I didn’t know where to look first! It’s just filled with treasures in every nook and cranny. Lots of interesting and uncommon objects. The perfect name for this wonderful shop. And be sure to, at least, peek in the restroom. The owner, Steve Wiman, has worked his magic on the walls. Don’t want to say too much about it. Just go see for yourself!

My wife and I have literally been to flea markets and antique malls From coast to coast and this is by far our favorite. This is not your typical antique store selling crafts and reproductions and junk. The name of this store says it all. This is our second time here and we only get to visit when we come to Austin to visit our son but we may be visiting our son more just to stop here. ;). If you like different and unique items, you need to stop here. Even if you don’t find anything to buy the store is just awesome!

If you have been in any antique shop in Texas you have seen everything in this store.
Uncommon? No, Old? Yes. This is just a run of the mill antique shop like all others with one exception, It is very expensive junk.

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 embarrassed me by ordering me to wear my purse in front of my body in front of a bunch of shoppers. Did he think I wanted to steal or did he want to protect the items from being knocked over by my little backpack purse? I'm not sure, but what I do know is that it ruined the experience. I just wanted to leave quickly. I wont be visiting again because of this and because of the terrible parking.

This is a store where you could find just about anything and you will certainly find things you weren't expecting! Every corner we turned we found some new/old trinket worth seeing. Our daughters each bought a little something and we found some hysterical cards worth taking home. A perfect spot to do some browsing.

Do not bring young children here who need to touch everything. It will end in tears. Everyone else will likely enjoy exploring this well-arranged and well-curated antiques and oddities store. There is so much to see. I shop here when I need a special or unique item for interior styling and decorating. Yes, there are some pricey antiques, but there are also many affordable knick-knacks, vintage jewelry and general collectible stuff.

The store moved off of South Congress Avenue a few years ago, and is now a little bit more off the beaten path. The upside is that there is more convenient parking now.
