    So much cool stuff here it is overwhelming. Whoever said, "don't bring your girlfriend here because you will be there for hours," was right! Definitely a unique place!

    Such an interesting store. There's stuff everywhere! Look closely to find stuff hidden.I don't know if I'd buy anything here because some of the stuff is just overpriced, but definitely worth a visit.

    This is probably one of the weirdest places in Austin that you should visit! The name says it all!

    Can I live here? Somethings are a bit overpriced, but the curation and the way they arranged everything is just lovely!

    It's a vexilloligist's dream. Don't be afraid to negotiate on price.

    A huge eclectic mix of vintage furniture, trinkets and antlers. It's certainly impressive and worth a look around alone but one can't help but feel that the prices have been enhanced by a tourist tax.

  • Leggy V.

    Without a doubt my favourite store in Austin. It has the most exquisite collection of vintage jewellery and all kinds of bizarre collectables from all corners of the globe. It's a feast for the eyes!

    Leggy Voodoo · September 8, 2014
  • Charlotte W.

    This pre-curated antique shop has an awesome selection, but the prices are top dollar.

    Lots of cool vintage objects

  • Erin L.

    You could spend weeks, WEEKS, looking all the objects in here. Where did they find that?, you will ask, or who would ever keep this thing?, or who would ever BUY it? Great for browsing.

    Can you find these sad carrots?

    Everything is priced around 20 times what it should be. Cool stuff, though.

    You'll want to take you're time perusing the booths for quirky finds

    Rude. Dogs walking around in store and we get a hard time about a stroller and kids. Never spend a dime in there.

    Expensive junk.

  • Social N.

    Vintage knick-knacks and antique jewelry! If you want antlers to hang on the wall, this is the place. Also, the old photos and postcards are a site to see!

    Looking for an antique chair? How about a mounted deer head? This store on South Congress Avenue is part antique, part funky boutique with a little flea market thrown in.

    Some seriously... Uncommon objects. Wow, guess they got the name right.

    Clay Chastain · December 30, 2011
  • Matthew B.

    Saw a guy try to cheap them out on the listed price and get thrown out. So I would say, just expect to pay the price as listed

    One of the greatest antique/junk shops I have ever been to in my life. This is a must see when in Austin.

    Janet Johnson · October 4, 2011
  • Andy A.

    An over priced garage sale.

    Andy Aupperle · October 2, 2011
  • Stacey

    Have to admit, the old-stuff shopping in OK and NC is better, cheaper, and more of adventure... but this is a good stand-in.

    Stacey · September 5, 2010
  • Matt E.

    Look @ the old photos. They're cool and creepy.

    Matt Eng · July 5, 2010
  • Jaysyn L.

    If time is of the essence to you do not bring your girlfriend here. They could spend all day in this place! I kid of course. Awesome collection of vintage goods with an ever changing lineup.

    It's like a crazy carnival of vintage stuff. Spend hours in here browsing and then cross Congress to grab a treat at Hey Cupcake.

    Every time you walk into this store you'll find something different. My favorite are any of the old mannequins and the jars of random stuff the sell. Great way to spend afternoon. Read more
