Uncommon Objects

This is the the most wonderful antique/collectible store you ever saw in your life. It's called Uncommon Objects, and it is brimming with all wonderful stuff that you, your parents or grandparents ever owned, plus all the stuff you wanted as a kid, plus everything ever advertised at the roadhouse shacks... and then some.
this one does not enlarge
I really only took a few shots that don't even scratch the surface. Each item is fascinating. You can click on rge ones below to view a lot larger. Here's a bunch of white violins and bows and a stuffed goose... a real one.
You can't have too many.
Here's that Stack of Bibles you've heard so much about.
Be sure the monkey is on the package.
Yes, it's a collection of very, very old cheese, and it resides in an old suitcase.
They know me too well.
Smiling monkey. This was for the kids' room. It gave them nightmares.
Give them an inch, they'll take a foot.
A classic.
This is rotated counter-clockwise, that's why the price tag seems to be defying gravity. It's a metal sign. My feet do feel like that sometimes.
We were looking for a marker for Jax. This looks great, but it's painted wood and wouldn't do well outdoors. Grrrrr.
Oh Ken! You are such a slave to fashion!
I'm left speechless by this one.
This was one of a family of 3 adorable skunks.
Mona Lisa!! Yes, it's a painting.
Hubba hubba. Here's one that Photobucket would take down because John Ashcroft is working as a censor over there.
Uncommon Objects on South Congress is a must-see if you ever visit this town.

I love browsing in places like that! And I was wondering where your new header photo of the suitcase o' cheese came from!
