Austin Adventure #2

Now that you've had time to get all the sugar out of your system from Hey Cupcake, it's time for stop #2 on the tour of Austin. The bad news for those of you wanting to work off the cupcake induced calories is that this stop is directly across the street from Hey Cupcake.

Directly across S. Congress street from Hey Cupcake is a unique shopping experience. Everything from Vintage clothing shops, a boot store, and artisan fair booths make up S. Congress.  It really is a mix of all things weired, hence it being part of Austin. Just incase you didn't know, Austin's slogan is "Keep Austin Weird". I think this street does that single handidly.

The weirdest store I went into was one called UnCommon Objects. You just have to see it to believe it. It was an antique store but not the regular type that you would find musty smelly objects from your grandmother's house in. This one was full of crazy objects. It has tons of old science experiments, stuffed (real) animals, a shellaced alligator to welcome you, old antique medical supplies, old flash cards, weird clothing, anything and everything to make you wonder... UnCommon Objects was the perfect name.  I didn't take any pictures in this store because it was packed and a little hard to move around in but it would have been so fun, definately an Austin must see.

So on a pretty day, check out the shops on S. Congress.... and the artisan street fairs..
