If you are willing to drive around and explore, Austin has so many unique stores tucked in its nooks and crannies. I want to share two with you today!
1. Uncommon Objects.
This is a Soco find (located on South Congress). It’s an amazing place that I would imagine the American Picker’s would love, though it’s a little pricey. Uncommon Objects is a large store with lots of unusual finds just packed in. I got out my phone and took a few photos. Here are some photos I snapped with it.
I love the quirkyness at this shop and in Austin in general.
The second shop that I want to tell you about is Fortney’s which is located on the famous Sixth Street. My brother, sister-in-law, husband and I all wondered through Fortney’s and we were all amazed at the inventory. It was overwhelming to take it all in. From architectural salvage to antiques to reworked furniture.
I wish I had my camera with me or thought to grab my phone, but my eyes were just too busy looking. I will make a trip back with my camera, but I didn’t want to forget to tell you about it. So, here are some images from their website. It’s way better in person!
And, they had this exact floor lamp that I saw in the Scott Felder model home. It was $699. I know West Elm has a similar one for less.
He has an inside space, outside space and a small cabin in the back, all filled!
You really have to just go there because it’s truly better than these photos on his website show.
