haute finds: uncommon objects: austin texas

Hi ya'll, I am in Austin and have just experienced a wonderful store called Uncommon Objects. Artist Steve Wiman is the proprietor of this amazing and unusual collection of vintage ephemera and curiosities. The store literally envelops you as you walk around not expecting to spend so long inside its walls. The store's website also has a slideshow and a featured purveyor slideshow (with great music). It is one of those stores that I am adding to my favorites list like the French Deyrolles, who I have heard just had a devastating fire within the store (so sorry to hear that) and Obsolete in Santa Monica.

These ornate chairs are made from old tin and soda cans. Haute reuse!
