Junk store - they don't pay you anything if you bring something in. A few years ago I took in a full size maple bed that was my grandmothers worth atleast $300, they only would give me $35! Really? I understand with things like this, your not gonna get what it's worth but that low? come on now! I know this family personally and they are pot heads - the parents give the kids pot from time to time. The last time I was in the store, it was dirty and not organized at all. Horrible! They do have a few things that might be interesting to some but I wouldn't buy from pot heads!

I love digging for treasure and let me tell you , this is the place ! A small family owned shop that has survived over 10 years of business in Austin,TX alone ! Toys , music and movie collectibles , used and new furniture , silver and costume jewelry can be found in abundance ! The owner's have an unbelievable mental map of everything they own so if you do not have time to dig around feel free to simply ask them where the items you search are located and if they do not have at that moment be sure to check back with them soon , they are always bringing in new merchandise ! From full houses to individual items , they bring new stuff in everyday which is what keeps me going back ! If you do not want something , bring it in and they will buy it (for cash) or just simply trade them for something you want !
THIS STORE IS A MUST SEE ,what are you waiting for ? They have over 2000 square feet of space and not much of it is given to walk around in !

Out of the Past is packed to the ceiling with assorted STUFF. Everything is here--toys, furniture, records, posters, glassware, old soda cans, and a lot of genuinely worthless junk. You can waste a lot of days trying to explore this place, and have a lot of fun doing it. The only thing that gets to me is that there aren't any prices, and I get the feeling that the owner decides how much they will charge you based on how savvy they think you are. But I guess that's the nature of the beast.
