Yeya’s Antique’s & Oddities
1423 E Commerce, (210) 827-5555

If you know exactly what you’re looking for, you’ll probably have better luck finding it at the maze-like Alamo Antique Mall (125 Broadway) or maybe the fascinating Antiquarian Book Mart (3127 Broadway). But if you want the obscure collectibles to jump out and find you—Yeya’s Antiques & Oddities is the place to go hunting. A spell in the store’s densely packed yard can feel a bit like you’ve wandered into a graveyard for architectural salvage, vintage signage, jukeboxes and scraps of carnival rides. Equally as unusual, the shop’s interior is stacked with art, old-school clocks and such wildcard items as a shadowboxed Eurypeima Spinicrus (tarantula), an old Bollywood poster and even a Hatch Show Print card advertising a concert at the Grand Ole Opry.
