Arguably the coolest store you'll ever step foot in, Uncommon Objects is known as an emporium of transcendent junk. The Austin, Texas antique shop has been around since 1991 and in its time has sold some of the coolest, quirkiest items you never knew you needed.
The entire store is curated by 24 antique sellers to find the most surprising items from American culture and history. There's no guessing what you'll find—just know that whatever it is, it will be unlike anything you've ever seen. During my visit, I found prescription pads from the early 1900s and a stunning vintage vanity. It feels like you're in a museum, only you can shop it and take every funky find home, if you'd like.
The store has over 70,000 followers on Instagram and visitors who come from all over the world, searching for the Uncommon Objects they can't get anywhere else. If you're an antique and vintage junkie, add this store to your bucket list.
