White Elephant Shop Outlet
Rte. 133, Essex; (508) 768-3329 Antique hunters love to browse the stretch of furniture shops in Essex, a fine day trip from just about anywhere. The White Elephant is a longtime favorite; this nearby branch is their clearance center if you can imagine such a thing for a place that already looks like a yard sale.
At this peeling yellow wood-frame house right on the highway, everything is half-off. Poke around, and you may find a redwood picnic table for $40; an art deco hutch with glass doors, in okay condition, for $250; even a Hammond organ for $50 (yes, it works). Plus all the bric-a-brac your home will ever need.
Adjacent to this building is the Buck Hut evidently the clearance center for the clearance center. Barbecue grills, ice skates, golf clubs, jigsaw puzzles, and a zillion old record albums are, you guessed it, a buck although, as a sign points out, Prices are negotiable. Wow. This Cheap-ster’s paradise is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 P.M. Sundays from 12-5.
