Modern Redux, which sells refurbished-vintage furniture and decorative items, is newer on the scene than some of the stalwarts on this list, but it has made a big splash with its unique, high-quality, 20th-century modern offerings.

3. Uptown Modern

Austin, TX 78756
(512) 452-1200

You can find many stunning, statement midcentury-modern furniture pieces at this expertly curated resale shop specializing in items from that era. If you’re not quite ready to make that leap, there are many accessory and decor items, including lamps, art, and knickknacks that fit almost any budget.

4. Top Drawer Thrift

Another solid bet on funky North Loop, Revival offers an affordable mix of furniture and home goods from a variety of eras. (They also carry lots of fab clothing, art, gifts, and cards.)

6. Room Service Vintage

117 N Loop Blvd E
Austin, TX 78751
(512) 451-1057
Visit Website

With 35 years of providing Austinites of all stripes an opportunity to buy some of the best, most unique, and sometimes most outrageous furniture and home décor items around, Room Service has earned its “iconic” designation. Its main focus is its massive, continually changing selection of 1950s-1970s furniture, but you’ll find plenty of stylish lighting, art, glassware, barware, and decorative items to love there, too.

7. Treasure City Thrift

2142 E 7th St
Austin, TX 78702
(512) 524-2820
Visit Website

The somewhat socialistic sirens of radical thrift store Treasure City sing a bohemian love song to all in search of extremely well-priced, distinctive, often one-of-a-kind home items of both practical and decorative varieties (as if those were two different things, ha). The store is the project of a worker-run nonprofit that supports local groups working for grassroots change.

8. Uncommon Objects

1602 Fortview Rd
Austin, TX 78704
(512) 442-4000
Visit Website

For decades a mainstay on South Congress, which it helped transform into the popular strip it is today, Uncommon Objects has moved farther south in the city but retains its essential, irresistible character. Its sales floor is like no other, brimming with the odd, the gorgeous, the compelling, and the uncanny. Once you enter, It’s really hard not to take home something you love, purchased for a reasonable amount.

9. Far Out Home Fittings

1500 W Ben White Blvd
Austin, TX 78704
(512) 445-3213
Visit Website

Specializing in the “eclectic, weird, and functional” since 1990, according to its (‘70s-fonted) website, Far Out is akin to Room Service Vintage in that it offers experiential furniture shopping as well as attentive and knowledgeable service. As a bonus, they’re up for working with you on bulk or group discounts.

10. Austin Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Copy Link
500 W Ben White Blvd
Austin, TX 78704
(512) 478-2165
Visit Website

Many know and love the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for its vast selection of primo home-repair, maintenance, and construction goods—all donated to the nonprofit, which builds affordable housing with communities worldwide, including in Austin. Less well known is the store’s usually healthy inventory of furniture and home goods. The workers who receive donations make sure that what you find there is always in great shape, of good quality—and sometimes even brand new.
