In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.

22 String Celtic Harp

02-24-harp

This is a beautifully made Celtic style, 22 string harp.  It is absolutely beautiful in its simplicity and the wood is just lovely, although I don’t know what kind it is.

Condition: Excellent.  It has some minor dings in the wood here and there, but over all it’s lovely.  I unfortunately am not the musician in the family (my late husband was), so can’t tell you if it’s been tuned recently.

Dimensions:   The base is 23″ long by 7″deep.  The overall length of the harp is 29″ long x 23″ high.

Price:  $125.00.   (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine 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.

Soil Survey – Penobscot County Maine, Issued 1963

02-24-soil-sample-penobscot

This large manual also gives the following information on the cover: Series 1959, No. 28.   United States Department of Agriculture, Soil Conservation Service.  In cooperation with the University of Maine Agricultural Experiment Station.

I considered taking the book apart and selling the maps individually for $10 each, which would bring in a lot more money to our shop than selling the manual as a single entity.  But I decided against that idea, figuring that someone else with better connections in the Penobscot region might want to do it that way.

Condition:  Very good to excellent.

# Pages / Maps: 119 pages plus over 100 fold-out colored topographical maps.  The manual is about 1.5″ thick.

Price:  $150.00.  (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

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.
