Uncommon Objects, Austin

Not many stores can call themselves "Uncommon Objects" and really live up to the name. But the store on South Congress in Austin...well, it's uncommon all right.

It started off cool, sort of like a more authentic Anthropologie. These vintage chain links weighed an arm and a leg...I couldn't even pick them up.

Everyone needs a bowl of hands, right?

Ceramic life size dogs....yes.

I love these vintage pull down maps and charts.

These gorgeous mirrored urns would have made great lamps.

Now if you read MoS you know I am not afraid of taxidermy. Like, I have a boar's head hanging in my living room. But the taxidermy here started to put me over the edge...

This is a 3 foot long snapping turtle. Scared the bejeezus out of me. That is until I turned around and stared a stuffed baboon in the face. Yikes!!!

Fortunately I came home with something less dead....this brass lobster. The TSA agent really got a kick out of this when it went through the x ray.

Uncommon Objects...not for the squeamish but definitely worth a stop if you are in Austin! -Posted using BlogPress from my iPad

I always love a good creature find, especially if it's brass. Wish I lived closer to TX, looks like a fun shop!
