I'd agree with previous comments about the pricing sometimes tending towards the ridiculous. However, there are some more reasonably priced items if you're prepared to root through. Not cheap, but then they are located in South Congress so that's not really a surprise. Even if...More

Cool oddities shop on S Congress but very over priced. We walked around a minute they wouldn't budge on any of the prices on there skull collections. I don't see how they stay open as no one was buying anything. Cool for a walk through.

Uncommon Objects is now an institution. You literally never know what you'll find there, from funky vintage clothing to mid century home furnishings, anything is possible. Good prices, too. SOCO and ATX approved.

Very interesting place and a MUST visit shop for TOURISTS! There's a bunch of random things in here and it's set up like an organized hoarder museum. I love it! There are a lot of knickknacks all over the place. Make sure to stop by...More
