    This place is amazing, full of antiques, bizarre heirlooms, & objects most likely cursed by some ancient cult. It's fun to browse such a weird collection, like walking inside one of those I Spy books!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
