About The Trunk Shop

Our founder, David Edelstein, opened the Trunk Shop in 1979 by leaving the front door of his downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, street level apartment open, displaying antique trunks and other small furniture he had found and refinished. There it remained for twenty years until David's sister, Linda Edelstein and brother-in-law, Pat Morse joined the business in 1997, following their equally long interest in antique trunks, beginning around 1975. 

Today, the mission of The Trunk Shop, is looked after and cared for by Kimry Corrette, a longtime friend of Pat and Linda, with a background in design, sustainability, and above all else, restoration!
