Hours for the Week of 09/24-09/30, 2017 – We’re Back from Our Los Angeles Trip!

 

Please note that our hours are rather limited this week.  Since Linda has been away for three weeks, she’s coming home to a PILE of work at her daytime job, and has to move on getting it done.  (Doesn’t it always happen that way?)

The good news is that her brand new grandson is ADORABLE – and he is worth every minute of catch-up Linda will have to do!

NEWS!

Hathaway Mill Antique Mall, Waterville.  Our booth (#23) at the Hathaway Mill Antique Mall, 10 Water Street in Waterville is OPEN, 10:00-5:00, seven days a week!  We’ve crammed it full of great inventory (with more to come as soon as we’re back in Maine).

Booths at Other Antique Malls and Flea Markets Opening Soon! (Watch this space and our blogs for more information!)

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.

It’s Gonna Be a Book Sale! Fill a Bag for Five Bucks!

 

We have loads and loads of great contemporary fiction and non fiction books to sell for really cheap!   Fiction includes well-known authors such as David Baldacci, James Michener, James Patterson, and many others.  We have romance, drama, science fiction, mystery … you name it!

We also have business books, biographies, self-help, political, inspirational, kids books and more!

Right now I’m in Los Angeles visiting my brand new grandson, and won’t be back until the end of the month.

And when I return, there will be lots of organizing to do.

But after that, we’re gonna have a BOOK SALE!

So, please plan for it!

What: Book Sale!  Fill a Bag for 5 Bucks!  (Sales Tax included!  So the books actually only cost you $4.74!)   We’ve added more inventory for this sale, so some check it out!  Dealers, libraries, schools…  you are more than welcome!

How:  We have these cute reindeer bags that probably hold between 10-16 or so hardcovers (depending on their size), or easily hold a couple of dozen or more trade or mass market paperbacks!

When: Friday, Saturday, Sunday – October 6, 7, 8

Time: 8:00 am- 11:00 am (after that, I have to work at Heritage Collectibles, around the corner)

Where: Papa’s Thrift Shop, 5 Park Street in Lewiston (under the Pirate Flag!)

Other:  This sale is only for those books at Papa’s Thrift Shop.  Those at Heritage Collectibles will still be there usual prices.

Condition:   Most of these books are in “like new” condition.

Some Quick Details:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on the prices listed in our blogs… 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, and 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…
  • Dealers. We’re happy to talk to you!  Please remember to bring a copy of your State Resellers License.

Layaway Plan:  Please see our “Details: Layaway Plan” page.

Payment Information:   Please see our “Details: Payment & Pricing” page.

Vintage Child’s Rocking Horse!

 

I love this old rocking horse that was picked up at a recent auction – and am tempted to buy it off the shop for one of our grandchildren, but as we’ve said before on here, we just can’t keep everything that we like!

Condition:   Good to Very Good.    There’s some minor rust on the springs, but there are no breakages and everything appears to be working properly..

Location:  The horsie is at our booth (#23) at the Hathaway Mill Antiques Mall, 10 Water Street in Waterville ME 04901.

Price:   Just $40.00!   Plus the usual 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.

Please note: The shop at 189 Main Street in Lewiston is closed from September 1-25 while Linda visits her daughter, son-in-law and new grandson!  

Some Quick Details:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on the prices listed in our blogs… 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.

Vintage 1940s Era Glamour / American Beauties Pinup Posters

 

Both Johnny and I loved the WW II era glamour girl pinups… those saucy ladies with a twinkle in their eyes and mostly dressed, but still suggestive of … well, you know.

I like(d) them because they’re fun and sexy and actually pretty wholesome.  John liked them because… well, he was quite the man.  ‘Nuff said there!

Condition:   Good to Very Good.    They’re mostly in very good condition, as they’ve been wrapped in plastic for the past 70 years.  I additionally placed each in a plastic art sleeve with a loose foam board support.

Dimensions:  Approximately 11″ x 14″.   I neglected to measure them and am now writing this from memory!

Location:  The girls are at our booth (#23) at the Hathaway Mill Antiques Mall, 10 Water Street in Waterville ME 04901.

Price:   $20.00 each; discounts for bulk purchases (for 5 or all 10).   Plus the usual 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.

Please note: The shop at 189 Main Street in Lewiston is closed from September 1-25 while Linda visits her daughter, son-in-law and new grandson!

Reminder: We Are Closed Through September 25, While We Are Visiting Our New Grandson!

 

Our booth (#23) at the Hathaway Mill Antique Mall, 10 Water Street in Waterville is OPEN, 10:00-5:00, seven days a week!  We’ve crammed it full of great inventory, so please check it out!

When we return, come check out the following!

Heritage Books & Maps!  Although we couldn’t get it completely organized before we left, we’re pleased with the way the Books & Maps section of the shop is looking!  We have loads of vintage & contemporary hardcover fiction; a section devoted to cats, dogs and other animals; an area for spiritual books; hundreds of religious books; psychology, sociology and mental health; other languages; architecture; mechanics & engineering; science; medicine & health; humor; children’s; cookbooks;  travel & adventure; American history; world history; military history; biographies and memoirs; gardening; domestic arts; sports; antique reference; building & farmsteading; music; and the arts…. as well as loads of other categories!

Expanded Music Room!  We moved all of our vinyl, music books and instruments to a larger space within the shop… and now have some other equipment such as speakers, and DVD players on sale!

Check Out Our New Tool Room!  We’ve moved all of our tools into the old Music Room, and added quite a few items.  I’m actively looking for more antique and vintage tools to buy since we’ve sold a lot in the past few weeks… so send your referrals this-a-way!

Frames & Small Mirrors Closet!  We have piles of old and new picture frames for sale and finally have set up a space to display them all together.

Arts & Crafts and Small Group Classroom!  Our classroom has been reclaimed!  (It had turned into a junk storage room for far too long.)  We’re planning to start our classes again this fall!

We’re still reorganizing, and trying to find room for the 10,000 books we have in stock (several thousand are taking up half of our own personal garage), but we’re working on it!

Recent News: We now have a space (Booth #23) at the Hathaway Mill Antique Center at 10 Water Street in Waterville!

Attention: Due to Jackasses, There Will Be NO More Curb Alerts Behind Heritage Collectibles

With every curb alert, I post the following:

Please be respectful and don’t make a mess in the alley or in front of the shop.  My landlord parks there and he’s been really really good to us, but he doesn’t like to see a mess – and who can blame him?  Thank you!

Believe me, we greatly appreciate everyone who is respectful, and all who have helped us continue to give away thousands of dollars worth of free stuff every year.

This past weekend, though.  I was disgusted by some jerk and posted the following:

And to the person who left the bucket filled with cigarette butts and empty “nips” bottles… gee, thanks.  I give free stuff and you leave trash.  Really classy.

Well I’m sure no one reading this will believe it, but while I was working at the shop on Sunday afternoon, some jackass decided he (or she) wanted the metal bucket… so dumped all of those nasty disgusting cigarette butts and other crap (including some kind of liquid) into the box of remaining free items.

I had to throw away everything that was left.

That’s it.  I’m done.  I’ve cleaned up too many half-filled coffee cups, pieces of trash and so forth from our free items.  I’m not going to do it any more.  From now on, everything’s going to Goodwill.

The jackasses spoiled it for everyone else.  I’m sorry.

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

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.

He loved me, 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.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The 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, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
