Vintage Furniture Stores in Austin


Austin still has a good number of vintage furniture stores, although as the popularity of vintage has grown, there's less selection and it's more expensive.  We've created a round-up of some of Austin's best vintage furniture and accessories shops so you can find that perfect treasure for your apartment.

Room Service Vintage is the quintessential Austin vintage shop.  They have furniture, lighting, home decor, and clothing, plus the odd unidentifiable knick-knack.  Best of all, their prices won't give you sticker shock.  Selection is constantly changing, so if you see something, nab it, and go by regularly to see what's come through the door.

Going vintage at Uptown Modern won't save you any money, but they have iconic mid-century modern pieces restored to like new condition.  It's worth checking them out just for the sheer beauty, but you'll likely have to save for a while to afford one of their amazing credenzas, chairs, wall units and more by THE designers of the 1940's, 50's, 60's, and 70's.  

Off The Wall is on South Congress and has furniture, antiques, art, gifts, and just really bizarre things you won't find anywhere else.  

While you're on South Congress, be sure to check out Uncommon Objects.  This assemblage of 24 antique sellers all under one roof will keep you entertained for hours, even if you don't find anything you have to take home.  (Although, odds are, you will.)

Austin Antique Mall has 30,000 square feet of different dealers selling just about anything you can imagine.  The style runs the gamut, from shabby chic, to grandma chic, to mid-century modern and everything in-between!  Plus, they're right next to Playland Skate Center, so you can stir up some vintage memories of knocking them dead on 4 wheels at the skating rink!
