Two Mid Century Mahogany Drexel Dressers: A Large Triple w Mirror & A Smaller Double Dresser

Firm Prices: $195.00 for all 3 pieces or $115.00 for the triple dresser, $95.00 for the smaller dresser and $35.00 for the mirror.

The set is in marvelous condition. The vintage triple Drexel dresser is solid and lovely; the mirror – which doesn’t seem to match as it has a Frank Lloyd Wright feel to it – is a great accompaniment.

There is a matching smaller dresser also shown in the photos.

Condition: The mirror appears to have no flaws or blemishes. The triple dresser has one ding on the top as well as a light water stain if looked at from a certain angle. However, neither are particularly noticeable. The smaller dresser is in excellent condition other than some blemishes inside a drawer.

Dimensions: The triple dresser is 20 inches deep by 64 inches long. It is about 31 1/2 inches high.

The mirror is 47“ wide by 33 1/2 inches high.

The dimensions of the smaller dresser seem to have disappeared on me. I’ll add them later.

A Lovely 11 Piece White Bedroom Set for Child or Teen (price is for all)

Firm Price for All Pieces: $395.00. For pricing of individual pieces, please see below.

This is a wonderful bedroom set that I would have loved when a teenager.

It consists of the following:

… a 4 poster twin sized bed with mattress (inc foam for comfort, mattress cover and plastic cover) and bedding (two pillows, comforter, etc) ($125)
… a white drawer night stand with lamp ($30)
… a 9 drawer white dresser with mirror and lamp ($165)
… a double pedestal desk and matching chair with lamp ($95)
… a 5 shelf light pink bookcase ($80)

The bed comes with one of those foam pieces for mattress comfort, as well as a mattress cover and a plastic cover. This is a good clean home where everything was well taken care of!

Condition: All pieces are in good condition although there are dings here and there from use.

The desk does seem to have had a spill of some kind in one area of its surface. Candle wax, perhaps?

The comforter has a stain on the reverse that looks like coffee (?); it doesn’t show on top and may wash out. The sheets and pillowcase is a white & purple hydrangea pattern.

Dimensions:

The large 9 drawer dresser is 55″ wide x 17 1/2″ deep by 30″ high. The mirror is about 39″ wide x 35” high. The pale blue hurricane type lamp 16″ high by about 6 1/4″ in diameter.

The double pedestal desk is 44″ wide x 17 1/2″ deep x 30 1/2 high. The knee space is 19″ wide. I’m 5’3″ and can sit comfortably at this desk.

The matching chair’s seat is 14 1/2″ deep x 15 1/2″ wide at its widest. The chair overall is about 19″ deep. It is 17 1/2″ to the top of the seat and 32″ to the top of the back of the chair.

The bed posts are 68 1/2″ high. The bed itself is 41 1/2′ wide x 79″ long. It’s 34 1/2″ high at its highest (the headboard).

The pale pink bookcase is 48 1.2″ high, with five shelve. The top shelf has a lip, and is 37 1/2″ and 8 1/2 inches deep. This bookcase is real wood.

The little side table is 13″ deep x 20 1/2″ wide x 25 1/2″ high.

Vintage Yellow Bookcase (Could Use Refinishing/Repainting)

This is a super cool vintage bookcase in yellow paint (although the yellow isn’t showing in my photos).

Condition: Structurally, it’s good and sturdy. Aesthetically, it could use a paint job or to be stripped and refinished, although some might just use it as it is and wipe it down more than I did!

Dimensions: About 41″ long x 26″ high x 6″ deep.

Firm Price: $70.00

Lovely Heywood-Wakefield Mid Century Coffee Table & 2 Side Tables (price is for all)

This is a beautiful set, that I’ve been unable to find anywhere on line. However, the set is clearly marked Heywood-Wakefield.

Condition: Other than the legs showing signs of some chipping paint, the set is in near perfect condition. It does look like the coffee table sustained some water stains, as the photos show.

Dimensions: The table is 41″ long x 19″ deep by 14″ to the table’s surface; the lip around the back makes the table’s height 17″.

The end tables are 21″ high x 21 1/4″ wide x 27 1/2″ deep. The lip around the back adds 2″ to the overall height.

Firm Price: $300.00 for the set.

Estate Sales, Cleanouts, You Name It….

After years of doing this business “part-time” (HA!), I’ve finally taken the plunge into being truly full-time.

My other business, Heritage Health Services, is now a part-time gig, as I find myself tiring of hassling with insurance companies on behalf of my therapist clients, only to find dealing with said insurers is becoming more and more complicated practically by the day. I’ve loved working with “my” clinicians and their clients, but there were too many times when I ended up yelling at the insurance companies’ maddening automated systems, with the resulting irritability and intense dislike of it all.

So, here I am, for all of your organizing, sales and clean-out needs!

While the focus is on preparing your home, or that of a loved one, for sale by clearing out personal belongings, furniture, antiques, jewelry, tools, or even plain old junk, I offer more than just a clean out or estate sale service.

I listen.

As a widow, and an adult “orphan” (all of my grandparents and both parents are deceased), I know how hard it is to leave a home or to sell a home or to go through a loved one’s belongings and decide what to keep and what to give away.

I know this intimately. My husband died over 6 years ago, and his toothbrush is still in the same place he left it that morning. I’m not ready to move it yet. Or throw it out. Believe me, if you’re having a hard time with a similar situation, I get it.

I could write on and on about how I have a reasonably good understanding of what you’re facing right now, and how if it’s something I haven’t personally faced, I want to hear about it. Sharing sometimes makes tough situations seem a bit easier. But I’ll try to keep this reasonably brief. (Okay, so “brief” isn’t in my dictionary…)

What Heritage Collectibles Can Do For You.

Whether you’ve…
… started the process of downsizing,
… taken a new job and must relocate to a different part of the country,
… lost a spouse or parent, and need help going through their belongings, or
… been worried that perhaps you’ve become a hoarder…
I’ll listen and then help create a plan to take care of it for and/or with you. And I will do my best to get you the best bang for your buck that I can (that is, the best price for whatever you’re selling).

You can contact me (Linda Snyder) at HeritageCollectiblesMaine@gmail.com, or by calling me at 207-740-2247. There’s never a charge for an initial consultation.

Don’t Tell Me You Do This All By Yourself??

That would definitely be tough! Nope, I don’t. I have help from others who own compatible businesses: a bookkeeper who is available to manage inventory and organize whatever needs it (including me!); a handyman who can help with lifting & carrying, and is knowledgeable about all sorts of tools and their values; an antiques dealer, who keeps telling me he wants to retire, but I don’t think I’ll let him… these are good people. And I’ll add others as the business grows!

Maine Areas Served:

Androscoggin, Oxford, Franklin, Kennebec, Sagadahoc, and Cumberland counties.

Of course, if you want to fly me to the Bahamas, I probably wouldn’t say No (nor would the others I work with!).

Operators Are Standing By…

Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch. “Operators” would be me. Linda. And I’m usually pretty good at getting back to people in a reasonable time frame. Why not call or email today?

Wicked Sweet Stenciled Vintage Child’s Rocking Chair

This little child’s rocker comes by its distressed look naturally… from use!

Seriously, how adorable is this?

Coming Soon: A child’s bedroom set in white with stenciling… This rocker wasn’t originally a part of that set, but it blended in perfectly!

Condition: Structurally, it’s in great shape. Aesthetically, it’s also in great shape, except for some paint wearing off in places, and a few dings here and there.

Dimensions: 10 inches to the seat. The seat itself is 15 inches wide but overall the chair is about 16 1/2 inches wide with the arms extending beyond the footprint of the seat.

Overall, the height is 27″ and the depth to the back of the seat is 14 1/4 inches, which does not include the rockers.

Set of 4 Lovely Cork-Backed Chickadee Placemats!

My photos do not do these placemats justice. They are in perfect condition, and the chickadees’ colors beautifully contrast with the white outlines of the pine cones surrounding them.

Condition: Like new. They do come with the bottom of their original box, but the top seems to have disappeared.

Dimensions: 16″ x 11 1/2″

Location: The chickadees are located in my booth (S75) at Happy Trails Flea Market & Antiques in Oxford (ME), on Route 26 just after the Speedway heading north.

Price: $25.00 for the set.
