Books: Loads of Architecture, Building, Power, Engineering, and Household Project Books!

If you have a home project coming up, check us out first.  We have 6 shelves crammed full of some of the coolest books for building, household projects, electricity, engineering, houses, architecture, and more!  I will try to get some of the titles on this blog soon, but in the meantime, you might be able to figure them out by looking at the photos.

(Scroll down for more pictures.)

Price:
  Vary… anywhere from a couple of dollars each to $20.00 or more.  Plus 5.5% State of Maine sales tax.

Condition:  Many are in “Like New” condition; others have seen quite a bit of wear (generally, those are the older books.)

All sales, after expenses, go to support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in center in development.  The Grief Warrior Project‘s support group room is located at Heritage Collectibles.  FMI: Linda, 207 / 740-2247.

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

NOTE:  With the exception of nearly 14,000 books, plus maps & music (sheet music & vinyl), most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford.  We are booth number 56.

FMI:  https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/details-hours/ 

We hope you will enjoy our revamped shop, as well as our booth in Oxford, as you did our original retail space on Main Street.

For those dying to check out the revamped Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps, we are still in the same building, but our new entrance is at the back of that building.  

Just enter 9 Park Street, Lewiston into your GPS and park in the nearest available spot.  Our entrance is through the door at the end of the building on the right hand side.  You’ll see signs in the windows (“Retail Store” and “Heritage Collectibles” and “Antiques” as well as others; you’ll also see my silver Jeep Liberty parked nearby.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us since August of 2014!

Diet & Weight Loss Books – Nearly 4 Dozen of Them!

As I’m continuing to organize the books at the shop, I’m trying to dispose of the kinds of books that just don’t sell well for us – and that includes diet books.

We have about 4 dozen of the most popular hardcover and trade paperback diet and weight loss books, including several by Suzanne Somers.  (And there may be more packed away in boxes that I haven’t opened yet.)

Price:
  Just 50c each or $10.00 for the whole lot seen here.  (Just one hardcover alone can be found at the major bookstores for $15- $20!)   Plus 5.5% State of Maine sales tax.

Condition:  Excellent; most are like new.

FREE Vinyl… Records of All Genres and Eras


John was a talented musician, and oh how he knew and loved music.  He had worked hard at organizing our vinyl collection just before he died and had gone through everything we had.

Since then I’ve sold a great deal of 1970s rock, and added another 1,000 or so albums to the inventory.  I have no idea what we have, though, because when I consolidated John’s shop into the larger antiques shop, it all got “blended” in.  (Blended is a nice way of saying I made a big mess of it all.)

I know some of it isn’t worth much; no matter how lovely the music is, the old classical albums just aren’t selling.  But I believe there’s some good stuff in there.  I really don’t want to throw them out, and would prefer they go to someone who can take the time to go through everything, and maybe make some money off the entire lot.

Update:  Someone who knows what he’s doing just came in and went through all of the albums.  Apparently most of those I’ve picked up in the past couple of years aren’t in very good condition, and aren’t worth much, if anything.  He said it was sad because there were some great records in the collection.

Anyway, he bought the best, and I’m left with the rest.   I can donate them to some organization that might be able to make a few dollars off them, but I don’t really have the time to box them up and move ’em on out.

So…

Price:   FREE!   Give me a yell at 207/ 740-2247 and come get everything that’s left (there are a LOT).  I need the space.

Hardcover and Paperback Contemporary Fiction – About 50-60 Boxes of Them!


As mentioned on another post, in the past couple of weeks, I’ve added a good 4,000-5,000 books to our inventory.  All told, there were at least 200 boxes of books that got dragged into the shop, piled in every available corner and free space. Whew!

Far too many of those boxes were contemporary fiction, which isn’t the kind of book we’re particularly interested in carrying or trying to sell… they take up far too much room in our small shop!

So… here’s the deal:

We want to get rid of the boxes you can see in the photos, as well another 15-20 boxes presently stored in my garage. And we’re practically giving them away, especially if you come and take the entire load.

Price:  Most of our contemporary fiction is 50c for mass market paperbacks, $1.00 for trade paperbacks and $2.00 for hardcovers; buy 3 of any kind, get one of the same kind for free.

Or, we offer a “Fill-A-Bag for 5 Bucks” deal… use one of our own reindeer-themed bags, which holds about a dozen hardcovers (and lots more mass market or trade paperbacks), for just five dollars.  That’s a great price, especially with the holidays coming up.  (Warning, digging through the boxes is a royal pain, as there’s no room to really move around in the conference room where they’re currently stored.)

If individually priced, the value of all these books based on what they’re selling for on Amazon (not the cover price), is likely around a couple of thousand dollars, not counting shipping.  I suspect there are probably 1,200-1,500 at the shop, and another 500-750 books in my garage.

You can buy this entire inventory – all 2,000+/- books (contemporary fiction only) for just $200.  That’s about 10c a book.   Please take us up on this offer.  I need my conference room, and I need my garage!

Condition:  Most are in excellent, like new condition.
