Auburn ME Centennial Souvenir Brochure, 1869-1969

 

We love-love-love this souvenir brochure from Auburn’s Centennial (1869-1969), which is now almost 50 years old!  The pictures of the swollen Androscoggin, and workers trying to remove ice and flooding from Auburn’s downtown are startling; the photos of the intersections of Turner and Court, and Main and Court, streets show a very different version of the town than we see today.

Condition:  Excellent!

Style: Vintage, Early American, Country

Price:  Just $10.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

The Golden Book of Favorite Songs, 20th edition – 1923

We have 9 copies of this “Treasury of the Best Songs of Our People” featuring “202 songs, 192 of which are with music”.

Condition:  Considering these songbooks are nearly 100 years old they are in pretty good condition.  There are a few rips and tears, and a bit of staining, but the covers are intact and it seems all of the pages are as well.

And man, the songs these books contain…

Price:  The songbooks sell for $9.50 each on a popular booksellers website, with just 3 available.  Our price is only $7.50 each, or all 9 of them for $50.00.  (Plus sales tax, of course.)

Quick Details:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on our prices… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
  • Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing).  If so, that reduced price will be posted.
  • Holding Items.  Sorry, not without payment.  We’ve been screwed on this more than once, and won’t do it any more.
  • Questions.  This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job.  This means I have very limited time to respond to questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts.  So I may not have time to respond…

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.

Vintage 1950s Spool Carousel, Ferris Wheel Style

 

This Ferris Wheel style thread carousel is super cool.  We’d never seen one like this before, and when researching it, only found one other that’s been sold in the past 10 years.

The carousel holds 70 spools of thread (those seen in the photos are included) situated on 10 racks which revolve in the stand, remaining upright as they turn.

The best we can figure is this is from the 1950s.  It’s all metal with no plastic pieces.

Dimensions:  About 12″ wide x 12″ high x 12″ deep

Condition:  Structurally it’s in great shape although there is some minor rust on the legs.

Style: Vintage, Early American.

Price:  Just $25.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

Very Inexpensive Camp or Starter Dresser

 

It would be pretty hard to beat our price on this basic brown wood dresser, that came out of an 1800s home in Auburn.

As we often say… Leave it as is, or use it as a project piece!  The price is definitely right, either way.

Dimensions:  31″ wide x 37″ high x 14.5″ deep

Condition:  Structurally it’s in decent shape although the back panel could use some reinforcement, as could the bottom (underneath the drawers).  And of course it’s seen better days – it’s a bit scratched up!

Style: Vintage, Early American, Country

Price:  Just $25.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

Sweet Little Child’s Chest of Drawers

 

This sweet little child’s chest of drawers is good and sturdy, but lightweight.  It came out of an 1800’s era home in Auburn, along with a number of other items we’ll be posting shortly.

Leave it as is, or use it as a project piece!  The price is definitely right, either way.

Dimensions:  18.5″ wide x 32″ high x 14.5″ deep

Condition:  Structurally it’s in great shape although there’s some discoloration to the front and side.

Style: Vintage, Early American, Country

Details:  Interesting little designs have been applied somehow as noted in the pictures.

Price:  Just $20.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

Artist of the Month – Katie Theriault!

  

We’re pleased to introduce Katie Theriault as our featured ArtWalk artist of the month… she’s definitely our most popular artist to date – three of the 8 paintings she brought to the shop just this morning have sold already!  (The Lotus, the Giraffe and the Elephants.)

Here’s what Katie has to say about herself:

I am a self-taught artist and I paint as a hobby and stress reliever. I don’t have a particular painting style.  I have been painting since a teenager and continue to improve and learn things as I go.

My late Grandfather was an amazing artist and watching him as a child inspired me to follow in his footsteps. I would like to think that he would be proud of me if he were still here.

ArtWalk artists receive 100% of the sale price for their work.  Heritage Collectibles provides wall space and visibility purely because we love art and artists!
