South Congress in Austin, Texas, is home to a collection of vibrant art galleries, boutiques resplendent with vintage boots and Mom jeans cut off to a 90s-lovin’ length, happening eateries, and open-air markets. 

I’ll go more in-depth on the sights and sounds of South Congress in a later post.

This post is a photo essay of Uncommon Objects, located right in the South Congress mix. Interestingly enough, I didn’t notice the big sign on the door telling patrons that photography is not permitted.

Or did I?

Uncommon Objects is a curio shop full of unusual taxidermy, antlers and bones, medical equipment, creepy dolls, and a thousand other truly uncommon objects. There are over twenty sellers who have curated this gallery of antique amazingness and everyone is bound to find something they want to take home. I can’t think of a better Austin souvenir than a javelina, you know?

All photos were taken on my iPhone 5C using the Hipstamatic app and have not been altered in any way.

If you find yourself on South Congress, stop by Uncommon Objects but don’t tell them who sent you. Then they’ll know I took photographs of their business and put them online. I won’t ever be allowed on South Congress again. It was a fun and interesting store, a feast for the eyes!

Uncommon Objects is open daily and you can find them in the following places online:

{Disclaimer: I honestly didn’t notice the sign telling me to not photograph the store. I’m not that much of a rebel. Sorry, Uncommon Objects!}

    You rebel, you! Looks like a cool place. I love that apothecary cabinet! (Or is it an old library card cabinet? Or something else??)

      It was great! I would have never dared to take all these photographs if I thought I would get in trouble for it. ;) I think it was an old card catalog – would be awesome for herbs and spices!
