Uncommon Objects is one of many antique malls, but it’s certainly the most popular one in the Austin area. Learn more about how this store along South Congress got its start.

Located on South Congress, Uncommon Objects has been selling antiques and interesting items in Austin since 1991. The business is run by Steve Wiman, who has helped the store grow from 5 vendors to 24 individual vendors selling their unique items inside. Each vendor sells items that they find and collect.
