Three Sweet Little Antique Doll Cribs

 

Our doll cribs are absolutely adorable.  We are thrilled to have three different cribs in stock right now.  Two are wooden, and one is metal; all three came out of homes in Lewiston-Auburn.  (I’ll add pictures of the metal one soon.)

Condition:  Fair to good.  All have seen extensive use and suffered some damage as a result, as well as due to their age.  The wood ones could use some wood glue and cleaning, as well as a few slats.  The metal one is in the best shape but does have some rust.

Prices:  Small maple crib: $10.00.  Medium pine crib: $10.00.  Large metal crib: $45.00.
Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!

Hours for the Week of 06/25-07/01, 2017 – As Always, We Have Vintage, Kitsch, Retro, and Some Junk!

 
 

Our hours have expanded!  We will now be open longer hours on Fridays and most Sundays.

However, this week, we’ll be closed on both Sunday and Monday, as well as our usual Wednesday.

As always, if you’re coming from any distance, please give me a call ahead of time to ensure I’ll be open… if our hours don’t work with your schedule and if I can possibly swing it, I can be available some mornings before 10:00.  Most afternoons through the evening, I’m at my social work job until at least 8:00 pm but I could possibly open up after I get out of work.

Books! Contemporary Religious and Spiritual Books for the Lay Person

We have a great selection of both contemporary and vintage religious and spiritual books, including some self-help and some for children.

The titles in the pictures above and below are representative of our inventory, although we’ve added a lot more since these photos were taken.  (Updated photos coming soon.)

Condition:  Most are in excellent, like new condition although there are a couple of very old hardcovers with damaged bindings.

Prices:  The volumes are individually priced, and generally at least 20% less than you’d pay on Amazon.

Some 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 used to when we first opened the shops, found that too often the person asking us to hold an item never came back and we lost sales in the interim to someone who was standing there with cash in hand. Obviously, that’s not good business.
  • 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.

Our Music Room Has Record Albums, Books, Sheet Music, Posters, Instruments and Years of Bass Player Magazines

 

Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps now has a room dedicated to music, and it is getting full!

We have hundreds of vintage records, including 1970s rock (YES!), sheet music & music books, posters, and instruments, including a couple of older guitars (one’s kind of busted up), a vintage tambourine and a xylophone.  For bass players, we have dozens of Bass Player magazines in great shape!

There’s also a 42″ wooden marching band baton and a vintage F pipe from a pipe organ.

I personally have an old Fender guitar my dad gave me in 1972 that’s still in good shape, but I haven’t yet decided to give it up – even though I never learned how to play!  And then there’s my husband’s Roland and all of his gear and music, which probably should be sold some day but I can’t quite bear to let go of any of it yet.

In any event, we’ve had some seriously cool items in the past: a zither and a Celtic harp, but both of those sold almost as soon as I posted them.  I fully expect to pick up more whenever I can get my hands on such items.

Condition:  Variable… depends on the item!

Prices:  Depends on the item, of course, but at a quick glance, our current prices are:

  • Guitar, Yamaha – $55.00.  Seems in decent shape other than the broken strings and magic marker all over it.  A musician who came in said that the neck is still straight, which is rather important musically!
  • Guitar, Harmony “Caribbean” – $10.00.  The back is busted out as  you can see in the pictures.
  • Vinyl – prices vary, depending.  We have a lot of 50c records and some that are $15.00 or more.
  • Bass Player magazines – depends on how many you want to buy.  Individually they’re about $5.00 each, but the price per drops with a bulk purchase.
  • Tambourine – $8.00
  • Pipe Organ pipe – $30.00
  • Marching Band Wooden Baton – $30.00
  • Music Books and Sheet Music – individually priced
  • Posters – the rolled up ones are just $1.50 each

Vintage Child’s Easel Style Double Chalkboard

 

With a little bit of cleaning up, this vintage double-sided green chalkboard (similar to the one I spent hours drawing on as a child, but much larger!) would be great fun for any kid!  Or two kids playing at the same time, since it has a chalkboard on both sides of the easel!  The piece also has a great space to hold loads of chalk, erasers and so forth!

Condition:  Needs some cleaning up, but otherwise in decent shape.  It appears to have been handmade, but I’ll have to take a closer look to make sure.

It also looks like it must have had something across the top; some of the older ones had a scroll of paper, although I don’t think that was the case here.  More likely, it had a plaque or signage of some kind (e.g. nursery rhymes).  A whiteboard could be affixed.

Dimensions: Larger than usual.  This is probably about 5′ tall although the chalkboard drawing area tops out at nearly 18″ below the peak of the frame.

Price:  Just $12.00 at Heritage Collectibles.  Plus the standard 5.5% sales tax, of course!
