Operated by an ecoconscious Staten Island collective, this sprawling thrift-store empire offers over 10,000 square feet of secondhand and antique furniture and collectibles. A bunkerlike concrete warehouse holds the intake department, as well as the main gallery. Here, amid room after room of china cabinets and sofas, you’ll find collectibles like stereoscopes, porcelain statuettes, and original artwork. Across the street is a two-floor space housing lamps, kitchen sets, and factory-rebuilt mattresses. It opens onto a side yard with storage containers and a large tent crammed with less expensive, more contemporary merchandise like end tables, bureaus, writing desks, breakfronts, exercise equipment—even the occasional upright piano. The huge inventory is replenished biweekly through estate-sale purchases and smaller-scale donations, both of which the Everything Goes crew will pick up free of charge. Layaway plans and a 10 percent cash-and-carry discount won’t clean out your wallet, and deliveries by local moving companies are available for a scaled fee.Sales
