White Trash owner Stuart Zamsky doesn’t open his small shop until two o’clock in the afternoon because he spends most of his mornings picking through estate sales looking for a bargain. Whether it is a metal kitchen cabinet with inset round aluminum pulls or a sixties six-drawer Brazilian rosewood dresser from Norway, most of the items in the store have a certain modern flavor and are sold at surprisingly fair prices. There is no stock room, so there’s a high turnover, but if you tell Zamsky what you’re looking for, he’ll keep his eyes peeled when he goes out shopping. Finds like the sixties board game Class Struggle and a vintage English coin bank show off Zamsky’s quirky brand of humor, as do the clever descriptions of each item’s history and provenance. Don’t be afraid to bargain for a price if you see something you like, as most price tags are negotiable.
