Tales of Texas Natalie: Uncommon Objects
Instead of incorporating this housewares and antiques store into one of my “days” posts, I thought I would leave this post as a “stand alone”, depsite the fact that I took all of the pics on my first day there.
Uncommon Objects on South Congress in Austin is this HUGE store that has antiques, vintage and collectible items, reclaimed industrial items, and general awesomeness, totally PACKED into tons of little alcoves throughout the length of a football field. And everything is pretty resonably priced. I immediately thought about my friends back home who would have bonered out large to walk through this place. Take a look at the pics below. These are ALL from the same store:
