About

All items sold by Manhattan Archaeology were found while exploring the mountains of trash on the Upper East Side of New York City.

Stephen Murray doesn't mind getting his hands a little bit dirty. While walking his dogs through his neighborhood, Stephen began to notice how much "good stuff" there was lying on top of the mountains of garbage bags. After a year of casually looking and selling on Ebay, he has decided to take it to the next level. This store will become that next level; he likes to make their trash our treasure.

Welcome to Manhattan Archaeology, home of Stephen Murray's vintage fashion, collectibles and antiques from the streets of New York City. I have been junking in some form of another ever since I was a kid. My childhood was spent looking at the ground for some sort of lost treasure. In the last year, I have been slowly turning this into a full time business and continue to expand with each day.

Why do I junk? Well here are just a few of my many reasons...
1) It is fun!! I love the hunt and not knowing what could be in the next bag. Very few jobs out there give you the opportunity to be outside in the city at its quietest hours. Fresh air is good for the body and mind.

2) I am close to making enough money to pay the bills by doing it.

3) It is my little contribution to protecting the environment. The sheer volume of trash produced by a city like New York is staggering. Anything I can save from the landfill is a victory in my book. It is also worth noting that almost all of the shipping and packing materials I use are salvaged.

Please feel free to contact me about my items or with any questions you may have about junking.

Payment

I do not currently collect sales tax, though this may change in the near future for NY/NYC residents.
Shipping
I live above a Post Office, so most items ship on the same day that I receive payment. If not, they make it there the following morning. Sometimes life happens, and I will be in touch if you should expect any delays.

My standard shipping method is USPS. I will state in the listing if it will be done via Expedited Shipping (like Priority Mail) and if it will be insured. Please contact me if you need to have it shipped express and we can work out the costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. Please take the time to ask any questions BEFORE you purchase the item.
