The Perish Trust may be your go to source for wares from bygone Americana. Opened on October 31, 2008, the mission of this NOPA antique haven is:
To diligently collect and curate antiques from the dead and dying industries. Perusing basements, boxes and personal stashes for the odd, obsolete and unusual. Hand picking artists from coast to coast to collaborate and showcasing it all in our gussied up little bunker.
Adding to the cache of this beautifully styled store are the proprietors, Kelly and Rod, that not only have impeccable eyes but are also two of the nicest people you could meet. And beyond the wares most likely to be found in your grandparents' attics, they also sell original artwork from Bay Area artists such as Kirsten Finkas, Jessica Niello, Kevin Randolph, Mariele Williams and Nell Van Vorst. Stop by The Perish Trust on a Saturday afternoon and be prepared to lose a few hours (and quite possibly a few dollars). (Images: Jessica Watson)
