Great Quality Valentines Nesting Boxes

These are very good quality nesting gift boxes… not that flimsy stuff you see too often. Each has a white lace ribbon as decoration.

There are 4 sets of 5 successively smaller boxes, and one set of four (the next to largest size is missing).  

How fun it would be to put a small gift in the littlest box, and watch your Valentine open them all to get to that final one!

Condition:  Excellent.  They are good and sturdy, and nice and clean. 

Dimensions:  The largest is about 10 1/2″ wide x 9″ tall x 3 3/4″ deep; the smallest is about 6″ wide x 5 1/2″ long x 1 3/4″ deep.

Price:  $25.00 for a set of 5 boxes.  The set of 4 is $20.00.

Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax.  For the 5 box sets that’s $1.38 tax, totaling $26.38 and for the set of 4 boxes that’s a tax of $1.10, for a total of $21.10.

Sorry, we won’t break up the sets.

Nice Little CD Cabinet… or Whatever Else You’d Like to Use It For…

A quick glance at this, and it seems like a bookcase, right?  But that’s a false front and those are not real books.  When you open the door, voila!  One has a storage cabinet that holds about 140-150 CDs!  (Or snacks.  It might be a great place to hide your snacks from the kids.) 

If you happened to read one of our previous posts, you’ll have seen that this nice little cabinet came with a disappointing surprise, which you can read about here, if you’re so inclined:   https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/2021/01/18/about-140-jewel-cases/

Note: This cabinet is not old or vintage.

Condition:  Very good.  The crevices in the front need some dusting and polishing with a toothbrush to get into the crevices; one area does appear to have had the paint scraped off a bit, but it also seems to fit in with the overall “old bookcase” look.

Dimensions:   Here’s another item the dimensions of which I’ve misplaced… sheesh.  I think it’s about 24″ high x 6″ deep x 14″ wide, but that’s an estimate from several miles away.  I’ll update soon.

Price:  $28.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.93, for a total of $36.93.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Shipping via USPS would be $20.00.

You Need a Duck Shaped Casserole!

Seriously.  Doesn’t every kitchen need a duck casserole dish?

Condition:  Excellent.  No chips, cracks or other blemishes noted.

Dimensions:  9.5″ wide x 7″ high; casserole dish is 4.25 inches deep.

Price:  $20.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.10, for a total of $21.10.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Because of a recent disaster shipping another item for a customer, we aren’t thrilled with the idea of trying again.  However, if you’d like, we can do it for $15.00 to make sure it gets there safely.

About 140 Jewel Cases

Once upon a time (well, actually, last Friday), a young business owner (well, actually, she’s in her mid 60s) went to an auction and purchased a pretty cool little CD cabinet filled with nearly 150 CDs.  It seemed like a decent deal, even though CDs aren’t worth much any more.

The auctioneer told how he hadn’t held the door to the CD cabinet shut like he should have, and all the CDs came spilling out, and he had to pick them all up and put them back in the cabinet.

The auctioneer didn’t know, and neither did the very young (okay, mid 60s) business owner, that all of those CD cases were EMPTY! (Had he known, he wouldn’t have spent the time sorting them and putting them back in the cute little CD cabinet, that will soon be posted for sale on this site.)

There wasn’t a darned CD in any one of them.  At least not in any of the 50 or so that the not-so-very-old entrepreneur opened.

And so… instead of some cool music, you can now be the proud owner of about 140 empty jewel cases.  And instead of paying 50c or so each for them, you can have them for the ridiculously low price of about 18c each… 

Or you can put them on a several shelves to impress your friends with your taste in music.

Condition:  The cases all seem to be in very good condition.  Of course, I didn’t go through them one by one.

Dimensions:   They’re jewel cases.  They are the size they are.  (Yeah, I’m gonna keep on with the ridiculousness of it all.)

Price:  $25.00 for all.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $1.38, for a total of $26.38.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Shipping via USPS is $20.00.  (This section is not part of the ridiculousness!)

Just Added! 3 More Chalkware Pedestals, Plus a Beautiful Reproduction!

A while ago, I picked up three pedestals somewhat similar to the ones above. Two have since sold, and I was thrilled to find the 4 above at auction last week!

Three are chalkware, which gives them that real antique-y look; the 4th, as you can see is a reproduction – but it’s my favorite of them all!

As mentioned in my previous post on the topic, I have several pedestals at home, mostly reproduction Grecian style.  And I love them!  They’re great for plants like philodendrons and ivy, or for displaying a strikingly colorful piece of artwork.  

For example, here are some ideas:

Our (reproduction) cinnebar horse statue ($40) really pops against the white of this chalkware pedestal.

This reproduction pedestal is wider and lower to the floor, so I added an urn (Greek or Roman with 3 maidens, $60) and a philodendron to balance it out.

Here’s the urn without the plant.

And here is one of the pedestals with just the plant. A much larger one would look even better!

Three of the four recently obtained pedestals are vintage chalkware, which is hollow and does damage somewhat easily, and is difficult to find nowadays for that reason. The other is a reproduction. And we still have the other reproduction (the shorter, round one).

Condition:
 There is a small amount of damage to the design under the corner of one of the chalkware pedestals (a small piece of the design has broken off, and despite the photo below, it’s really not all that noticeable, especially if placed against a wall!).

This group (two of which are matching) is in much better condition than the previous ones I had.

The round reproduction is in great shape, except for a small ding on the top surface.

The blemishes can be seen in the photos.

Dimensions:   

3 tall square chalkware pedestals: 11 1/2″ square by 29″ high.
1 tall square reproduction pedestal: 10″ square by 29 1/4″ high.
1 round reproduction pedestal: 15″ diameter by 16″ high.

Prices: 

3 tall square chalkware pedestals: $45.00 each, plus Maine State Sales Tax of $2.48 for a total of $47.48.
1 tall square reproduction pedestal: $40.00, plus Maine State Sales Tax of $2.20 for a total of $42.20.
1 round reproduction pedestal: $35.00, plus Maine State Sales Tax of $1.93 for a total of $36.93. 

Buy any two and save 10%. Buy all 5 and save 25%!

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Shipping & Delivery:
  Shipping these items is not recommended because the cost to value ratio would be prohibitive, and shipping the chalkware pieces makes us nervous.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Shipping each piece via USPS would be about $20.00, and based on a recent shipping disaster, we don’t think it’s a good idea to try.

Antique Victrola Cabinet – Think of What You Can Do With This!

This is a wonderful old Victrola cabinet. Unfortunately, the Victrola is long gone, but the cabinet has been in use for playing music since then; the husband of a friend (who I’m posting this for) had turned this into a very cool CD cabinet.  Eventually, however, they decided it was time to retire the piece in favor of another.

So, this real wood cabinet is looking for a new home… someone who will love it the way it was loved for years, and bring joy to its new surroundings!  

Condition:  It’s in good shape, especially for an item that seems to be about 100 years old.  There are a few minor dings and blemishes here and there, it needs a good polishing (as it’s been in storage for quite some time) and of course, there are a couple of holes drilled for wiring (or perhaps even for a hand crank?), but otherwise, it’s lovely.  

Dimensions:   36″ from the floor to the start of the cabinet top; 42″ high in all.  18″ wide x 20.5″ deep.  The cabinet needs to be 6″ from the wall for the top to open all the way.

Price:   $72.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $3.96 for a total of $75.96.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Due to a recent disaster during shipping, we don’t recommend trying to ship this item.

Americana Cookie Jar

If you love Americana type decor, here’s a cookie jar that will fit right in!  (And if you haven’t already, take a look at our 1950s Americana drum lamp, with a similar theme: https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/2020/11/08/1950s-americana-drum-lamp/.)

Condition:  Very good.  It has a few minor nicks and dings here and there, but no cracks or breaks.

Dimensions:   About 15″ high including the handle.  (I measured for the dimensions of about a dozen pieces of inventory, wrote it all down and then promptly misplaced the sheet of paper.  Will have to remeasure when I get back to the office, and update this post!).

Price:   $8.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $.44 for a total of $8.44.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Due to a recent disaster during shipping, we don’t recommend trying to ship this item.

Vintage Knight on Horseback Figural Lamp – From Our Wild Heart Gallery

Here’s another of our wonderful pieces evoking the knights of old, and perhaps, even of King Arthur’s court!

Vintage lamps seem a dime a dozen, and many do repeat similar themes over and over.  But this is the first we’ve seen like this.  Just look at the colors!

Note: Items in our Wild Heart Gallery will soon also be published on their own website, Wild Heart dot Gallery.

Condition:  Very good.  The figure itself is in great shape. The shade is probably much newer than the lamp, as it’s in near perfect condition. The lamp bulb socket is a bit shaky – which seems typical of older pieces – but it still works fine as seen in the photos.

Dimensions:   About 28″ high.  (I measured for the dimensions of about a dozen pieces of inventory, wrote it all down and then promptly misplaced the sheet of paper.  Will have to remeasure when I get back to the office, and update this post!).

Price:   $48.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $2.64 for a total of $50.64.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Shipping via USPS is $20.00 due to size.

Palm Trees – Bookends & A Wall Plaque

Palm trees… while I love Maine and really don’t like hot weather, I – like many others – could use a bit of sunshine right about now. And palm trees sure evoke that sense of sunny California or Florida, don’t they?

We have a set of palm tree bookends and a wall plaque (although I’m not sure what the coat of arms is all about) to add a touch of more temperate weather to your home or office. Enjoy!

Condition: Excellent.  Like new.   The bookends are a heavy resin-type material.  The plaque has a rustic barnboard appeal, even including a couple of old nail heads embedded, per the photos!

Dimensions:  The bookends are about 5″ high.  The plaque is around 16″ high.  (Better measurements coming soon!)  

Price:
 
Bookends: $15.00.
Plaque: $12.00.
Both: $22.00.
Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales tax.

Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.  

Shipping & Delivery:
  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.   Shipping via USPS is $12.00.

A Goose for Your Yard – From Our Lawn & Garden Shop

Despite growing up on a farm – or perhaps because of it – I’m not a big fan of geese.  My dad got a small flock of them shortly after I went away to college, leaving my sister to face them down by herself… and sometimes they made it difficult for her to get off the school bus and into the house!

Luckily, this goose won’t cause those kinds of problems!

Condition:  Excellent.  I don’t know if he’s actually spent any time outside.

Dimensions:   About 18″ high.  (I measured for the dimensions of about a dozen pieces of inventory, wrote it all down and then promptly misplaced the sheet of paper.  Will have to remeasure when I get back to the office, and update this post!).

Price:   $16.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $.88 for a total of $16.88.

Shipping & Delivery:  Free local pickup.  We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00.  Shipping via USPS is $12.00 due to size.
