Gift Certificates!

HBM - Gift Certificate - One Up HC - Gift Certificate - One Up

You know how it goes… you have too much on your plate, as usual – and just plain forgot about Aunt Nellie’s birthday.  (Aunt Nellie… did I really write that? Ha ha!)

Anyway, what better way to celebrate with her than to give her a gift certificate – AND offer to go shopping with her as well??  Is there anything grander?  She may be a little fussy, or maybe she just enjoys shopping… and she certainly will love to spend time with you, while poking around for something nifty.

So run on in to Heritage Collectibles and buy a gift certificate for either shop – Heritage Collectibles or Heritage Books & Maps!

Our gift certificates come in any denomination you want to purchase!

Wanted! Before & After Pictures!

BEFORE - Rustic Old Goat Cart

BEFORE – Rustic Old Goat Cart

AFTER - A gal from Greene was thrilled to send this photo of our old goat cart repurposed as a flower cart. What a lovely idea!

AFTER – A gal from Greene was thrilled to send this photo of our old goat cart repurposed as a flower cart. What a lovely idea!

Over the past couple of years, we’ve sold a pile of “project” pieces – furniture and other items that needed a complete makeover – and we’ve heard back from some of our customers, letting us know how excited they were with the results.

Wouldn’t it be cool to see an on-going series of photos of everyone’s creativity?

We would love it if you’ve bought a project piece from us and turned it into something groovy, and would send us pictures of the result!  Just text your photo(s) to Linda at 207 740 2247, or email them to heritagecollectiblesmaine @ gmail dot com!

The photos above are a great example!

(Yes, we know we’re going to get the inevitable idiots who think it’s funny to send spam photos.  Believe me, as a full-time social worker for decades, I’ve seen it all – any garbage that comes through will just be deleted as exactly that, so don’t bother wasting your time… unless I have to call the police, of course…)

ALLEY SALE! (You Know, Like a Yard Sale, But in an Alley….) Sunday & Monday, September 4 & 5 (Labor Day Weekend)

We're having an Alley Sale, Sunday & Monday, September 4 & 5, from 8-12!

We’re having an Alley Sale, Sunday & Monday, September 4 & 5, from 8-12!

 

ALLEY SALE!

Although we love-love-love Maine in the fall, it does mean extra work for us at the shop because we have to clear out all the stale old inventory and get ready for the (don’t yell at me) upcoming holiday season.

That means we need space in the shop.

That means a garage sale or a lawn sale.

But since the shop doesn’t have either a garage or a lawn, we will have to do an ALLEY SALE!

Come visit us in the alley behind our building (on the Park Street side) on Sunday and Monday, September 4 and 5, from 8:00 am – 12:00 noon, and help us clear out the old merchandise!  All sorts of glassware, dishes, silverplate, knick knacks, salvage closet items, a couple of bicycles, two microwaves, some clothing, and other stuff will be available!  (We aren’t sure yet of all the items, because we’re doing a church clean out just before then.)

Most items will be wicked cheap; there’ll be a $5 Fill A Bag section!

There should be plenty of parking on Park Street during these times.

More than likely, neither of our shops will be open (Heritage Collectibles, 189 Main Street and Heritage Books & Maps, 5 Park Street) during the ALLEY SALE, so we can focus on the items we have outside.

In case of rain (or if for some other reason the alley isn’t available)… we may have to hold the sale inside although I’m not yet sure how we could manage that.  Will monitor the weather and let you know!

Watch for pictures and updates on this blog!

SOLD! Make It Your Next Project! Wicked Ugly Corner Entertainment Center

entertainment center entertainment center 5

So at the shop we have this wicked ugly, over-sized corner entertainment center to set a television on top of that we really want to get rid of.

Even though I’d seen a picture of it, I didn’t realize how big & gaumy it would be, but considering I’d driven out to the middle of nowhere to pick it up, I just sighed and loaded it into the Jeep.  (Note: Urban Dictionary doesn’t yet have a definition for “gaumy”, which may be because it’s a pretty local word.)

There’s no real room in the shop for it, so we keep putting it out on the sidewalk when we’re open, and hauling it back in at night and propping it in the foyer.   (The pictures show it propped up on its side… will try to get some later today showing it actually set up outdoors.)

The husband says “GET RID OF IT!”.  Can’t say as I blame him.

So here’s the deal.  Come get it … ten bucks and it’s yours.

OR, spend $50.00 in the shop and you can have the cussed thing for free.  (No, we won’t take $10 off your $50 purchase if you don’t take it, because the goal is to get rid of the darned thing!)

This seriously would be a great project for someone who either wants to try something new, or who has real talent and can turn the piece into something groovy.

Condition:  The previous owner stripped it, planning to do the work himself.  Then he changed his mind.

Dimensions:  It’s honking big.  (See Urban Dictionary: “Honking” – anything large, excessive, or otherwise inordinately disproportionate by almost any measure.)  Without measuring it, I’d say it’s about 30″ high by 30″ wide on each of its corner sides, and 3+ feet across the front.  (As it turns out it’s 27″ x 34″ x 38″, so slightly bigger than I had estimated.)

Price:  $10.00.  Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies.  The price will go UP if you try to negotiate it down.

Layaway Plan
:  Please see our “Details: Layaway Plan” page.

Payment Information:   Please see our “Details: Payment & Pricing” page.

Shipping & Delivery Information:  Please see our “Details: Shipping & Delivery” page.
