In South Austin you will find the home of Randy and Sandy Robertson and their weird collections of unexpected and uncommonly cool treasures. Randy is a musician and in his studio / man cave, you can see instruments and music memorabilia from the Beatles, Cheech & Chong, The California Raisins and vintage record albums. Rumor has it that Randy’s band Hourglass and other special guests may perform live for us on the tour.
The living room is a converted museum with items from Randy’s growing up in several different countries. Among the many items, you will find a piece of the Berlin Wall, a functioning Seth Thomas Mantle Clock from the mid 1800s originally owned by Randy’s great-great grandmother that has traveled in a covered wagon, and a star from the old Dallas Cowboys Stadium obtained by… (ahem) creative means. Standing guard over everything is Duncan, a Maltese Knight of St. John, in his shining suit of Armor.
Sandy will take you upstairs as you walk the red carpet and enter an old-style Hollywood museum housing her extensive collection of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, funky hats and vintage newspaper collections.
The Robertson pets are cool too, with Randy’s beautiful saltwater aquarium named Reefer Madnezz to Sandy’s luxury high rise chicken condominium named Coop De Ville.
