Cracked the Code

Can’t shake the idea that antique stores are just a retail version of your grandmother’s attic? Uncommon Objects has cracked the code for taking antique shops from clutter shacks to cool: Everything on the floor, and the walls, and dangling from the ceiling, is tempting, whether it’s undeniably hip or just undeniably fascinating. (Stuffed rattlesnake, anyone?)

Fascinating Loot

"Cool displays" of "quirky oddities" inspire hours of "browsing" at this SoCo "destination", a "conglomeration of vintage and antiques dealers" offering "tons" of "treasures", from "midcentury furniture to taxidermy", "mysterious gadgets" to "fantastic" jewelry - indeed, it's part "hoarder's paradise", part "museum"; the staff is "friendly", and while prices can get "expensive", with so much "fascinating loot", no one leaves "empty-handed."
- Zagat, 2014
