Stunning Antique Figural Lamp with Yellow Globe

This figural lamp is absolutely stunning.  Take a look at the detail on the kids… and the globe is fabulous!  Like too many items we find at auctions, this is one I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to keep!  Right now, it’s in “storage” in a dark hallway at the office of my other business – and I am thrilled with how it casts a glow down there… so much nicer than the overhead fluorescent bulbs!

So far I haven’t seen any marks or signatures, but I haven’t turned the piece upside down yet.

I began to research it but I forgot the password to the account I use to research such things, and got locked out.  Sheesh…

Anyway, once I have more specific information, I’ll add it here!

Condition:  It’s in excellent, vintage/antique condition. There are a couple of minor paint chips here and there, but surprisingly, there no missing fingers or toes, and the globe is beautiful!

Price:  $650.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Dimensions:  In its entirety, the lamp is about 4 1/2 feet high… it’s almost as tall as I am!  The globe is about 14″ in diameter.

Shipping & Delivery:  Please see the tabs above 1) Details: Shipping & Delivery for mail order options (we do NOT recommend shipping this), and 2) Supporting the Grief Warrior Project if you’d like an appointment to see the item(s) in person prior to purchase.

This vintage solid brass koi fish hanging candle holder comes complete with a chain and looks fabulous with a small candle inside on dark winter nights… or hang him outside during one of those great summer evenings next year when you have friends over!

Dimensions:  About 10″ across.

Free! 3 Boxes of Miscellaneous Vintage & Contemporary Household Items

For the first person to pick them up, we have 3 boxes of vintage and contemporary household items: lots of mismatched dishes and glassware, a small food chopper, hot rollers… usable stuff.  Just message Linda through Facebook or this website, and you can pick up the boxes at her office in Lewiston.  Note: You must take all three boxes.

The photos aren’t great, since I didn’t start taking pictures until the boxes with the free items were already full.

If there are no takers, it’ll all go to Goodwill.  (I recently tried donating 3 large trash bags full of linens to a local homeless shelter but they never called me back, so off to Goodwill it all went!)

Some additional background (probably rather boring):

When we first opened Heritage Collectibles, my husband and I did a lot of clean-outs, and ended up with unbelievable amounts of inventory we couldn’t sell.  Over the years, I’ve filled the Jeep repeatedly with loads of items that were donated to such places as Goodwill, animal rescues, the local library, and many more… in addition, I had curb alerts in back of our shop where thousands of dollars worth of clothing, dishes, holiday items, small furniture, and so forth was given away.  I like to think we were instrumental in helping people who wouldn’t otherwise have been able to have some of the items we gave out.

Price:  Free.

Condition:  From Good (used, vintage) to Very Good. .

Shipping & Delivery:  Not available for these items.

SOLD! My Dog is My Heart Framed Print

When my 3 year old grandson saw this framed print, his immediate reaction was “It’s Clifford!”.  And of course, we’ve all read the Clifford the Big Red Dog book!

I obtained this from an estate in Saco… although I’d love to keep it (my two dogs go to the office with me every day), I just can’t keep everything I like.  After all, this is a business, right?

Price:  $10.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course..  (According to the tag on back, it was originally $40.00, sale price $39.99 !!!  HA!  Then “Our Price: $19.99”.)

Condition:  New… it still has the corner protectors.  The paper backing has some tears, as always seems to happen.

Dimensions:  18″ x 15″ .

Shipping & Delivery:  Please see the tabs above 1) Details: Shipping & Delivery for mail order options, and 2) Supporting the Grief Warrior Project if you’d like an appointment to see the item(s) in person prior to purchase.

Great Blue Gazing Ball on Pedestal for Your Garden

The brilliant blue of this gazing ball makes it stand out in any garden spot, large or small.  I just love love love it; don’t you?

A feature I really like about this one is that the pin that fits into the pedestal seems somewhat longer than others I’ve seen on-line, which makes it less likely to get blown off or knocked off by wind or squirrels!

Another feature that’s a plus – for me, anyway – is that the pedestal is concrete (or cement?), and very heavy.  None of that newfangled polyresin stuff.  This is the real deal.

Price:  $125.00.   Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Condition:  This came from the garden of a Saco area estate, so has been outside in the elements, with the condition one would expect from a concrete pedestal (as shown in photos).

Dimensions:  Approximately 3 feet from base to top of the ball.

Shipping & Delivery:  Please see the tabs above 1) Details: Shipping & Delivery for mail order options, and 2) Supporting the Grief Warrior Project if you’d like an appointment to see the item(s) in person prior to purchase.

New Location for Some Inventory – Other Updates

New Location:  Some of our inventory is now on consignment at the new office suite for Heritage Health Services, which also houses the offices of The Grief Warrior Project.  Profits, after expenses, from the sale of the inventory will – as before – go to support The Grief Warrior Project, which helps those grieving the loss of a loved one to suicide, and also helps people dealing with extreme anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts.

By Appointment: Please be aware that the Heritage Health Services offices are our place of business, where we do “virtual” office management services, and sometimes meet with clients.  For this reason, items on consignment at the Heritage Health Services offices can be seen by appointment only.  Please contact Linda at 207-740-2247 if you’d like to view any of Heritage Collectibles’ or The Nude Boutique’s inventory.  At least 24 hour notice is ordinarily needed.

Location:  The Heritage Health Services and Grief Warrior Project offices are located at 124 Canal Street in Lewiston.  We are Suite C, the second office in the building immediately to your left as you go through the Canal & Chestnut streets intersection.

Background:  As many know, we had two bricks and mortar stores side by side in town.  One was Heritage Collectibles; the other, Heritage Books & Maps.  The latter was my late husband’s baby.  Oh how he loved that little shop.

But tragically, horrifically, John died of depression & anxiety, as well as his painfully failing physical health, in October of 2016.  I tried to keep the shops going in his memory but couldn’t keep up with it all, and closed them a while later.

Much of the inventory is now stored in our home, including the approximately 10,000 books that remain from that inventory.  My goal since John’s death has been to use the sales of those books, brass items, art work, furnishings, inside and exterior decor, and so forth to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, which was established soon after John’s death, in the hope that I could somehow help others who have lived my nightmare, or perhaps even prevent someone else from choosing suicide as an option.

Volunteers Needed:  In the future, I’ll be looking for someone who would be willing to volunteer helping me price and tag inventory (there are boxes and boxes that have never been inventoried), or post the items on this website, Craigslist and Facebook (a friend will be posting some items on eBay), or even fix some of the artwork with frames that need repairing.

If any of those are something you’d be willing to help with, I’d be most grateful, as it will all help me make The Grief Warrior Project more available than I’ve been able to so far.

**********************************

Thank you to everyone who has supported Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps since August of 2014!

*****************************

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.

He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.  Johnny was an avid reader, who regarded the feel of real books in his hands as one of life’s greatest joys.  History was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a great deal about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly rush to find me, so he could read aloud passages that we would then discuss with the wonder of kids enthralled by a new toy.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

Help support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention and grief support organization by making purchases from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps.  All profits (after expenses) go to helping us help others.  I’m also a trained volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP).

(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 2001.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
