Coming Soon! Heritage Auctions – On-Line Auctions Available by Computer or Your Smart Phone!

Coming soon!  On-line auctions!

We’re not quite sure when we’ll be able to pull it all together, since our other business (providing office management and consulting services to independent therapists and small businesses) is keeping us pretty busy, but we’re very excited about doing on-line auctions, too!  (Yeah, I know… too darned many interests for my own good!)

However, it’s our hope to have this new part of our business up and running by Thanksgiving.

And our friends are shaking their heads, saying, “What’ll she be up to next?”  HA!

As of right now, the plan is to have at least one on-line auction every week, probably on Sunday or Monday evening, which you can attend from your laptop or smart phone!

You’ll be able to depend on a different focus at each auction!  We expect to have very cool items for your bidding pleasure in the following categories:

… one auction will consist entirely of antiques
… another will be books, maps & ephemera
… we’ll have an auction devoted only to kitsch (you know… tacky stuff, bad taste, kind of oddball but fun!)
… our Nude Boutique auction will consist of classic and classy nude art, figurines, and so forth (NOT tacky stuff!)
… there’ll be a night every now and then with an auction of general household & other items
… and I’m sure once we get going, there will be other special interest nights, perhaps kids’ stuff, or Christmas decorations (wow… we donated a lot of those last year!), and who knows what else.

We want to make this fun and easy for anyone to watch and bid, and of course there will be lists of items with their photos and descriptions available in advance.

If you’ve tried on-line auctions and have any thoughts – what you liked, what you didn’t like – let me know!  We want to make this easy-peasy for everyone!  And I want to be entertaining as well, so who knows what we’ll come up with – besides great items for your buying pleasure!

Note:  Per state regulations, every item auctioned will be owned by the auctioneer or her business, or by a close family member.  We cannot take consignments of any kind.

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

NOTE:  Our 14,000 books, plus maps, sheet music and art are now available primarily on-line (with local delivery in the Auburn, Maine area available), while some of our vintage, antique and other inventory can be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford.  We are booth number 56.

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

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.  He would have been the best auctioneer ever.  Oh how I miss him.

Johnny loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.  John was an avid reader, who loved the feel of real books in his hands… history was his forte, but in true Renaissance Man fashion, John knew a lot about a great many subjects.  He would often be so fascinated by a book he was reading that he would excitedly read aloud passages to me, so we could discuss the ideas contained therein.

He loved me like crazy, and I so loved him.

Great Side Table With Warm Colors – Very Nice and Solid, Too!

This country style side table is good and solid… not one of those flimsy things you see too often.  It’s been redone with a warm stain and would fit in almost anywhere!

The table is presently located in Auburn, but will be moving to the Undercover Flea Market in Oxford soon.  To purchase prior to then, please contact Linda at LSnyder@regroupbiz.com.

Price:  $38.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Condition:  Excellent.

Please forgive the lousy photography.

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

NOTE:  Our 14,000 books, plus maps, sheet music and art are now stored in my home, and I’m slowly getting them on-line and will soon be putting them on Amazon.  It would be great if you would purchase these items directly from me before they end up on Amazon… purchases directly from the actual owner (like me) have more impact on small businesses than when they’re sold through a giant corporation.

Our other inventory – vintage, antique and other items – can be found either at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford (we are booth number 56) or by arranging personal pick up in the Lewiston-Auburn area, and occasionally in Portland.

Explanation:  Much of our inventory has been in storage at our home for the past couple of years because of my husband’s tragic death, after which I found it exceedingly difficult to concentrate on this business, eventually closing our physical location.

I’m just now (fall of 2019) getting back into the business with any regularity.  So you may see items on here that seem familiar; I’m now digging them back out to sell, partly because we both loved our antiques shop, and partly because I’d like to reclaim my home as livable space, not the hoarder’s paradise it has felt like!

However, I’m also once again beginning to purchase new inventory when time allows… I’ve always loved auctions!

Cast Iron Plant or Sign Hanger with Painted Dog Perched on Top

I couldn’t find anything like this on-line after a quick search, although I’m certain this is cast iron (not wrought), meaning it was created from a mold.  So there should be others out there.

It is fairly rare to see the colors, as well…. although I’m not sure what kind of dog this is supposed to be.  It has a Scottish Terrier type shape, but not the coloration… and it’s not really a Schnauzer, either.  (Anyone with any ideas?)

In any event I love this cast iron plant hanger, and it is solid – not one of those flimsy modern ones!

The reverse is the same as the front.

The hanger is presently located in Auburn, but will be moving to the Undercover Flea Market in Oxford soon.  To purchase prior to then, please contact Linda at LSnyder@regroupbiz.com.

Price:  $32.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Condition:  Excellent.

Please forgive the lousy photography.

Rather… Uh… Interesting Plastic Adult Novelty Dolls

Okay, these two adult novelty toys are definitely from another era.  I have no idea if they were supposed to be battery operated or if they’re missing something that makes them move or shake their hips.  But they are certainly pretty cool, in a very tacky, kitschy sort of way!

Each is about 6″ high.

The items are presently located in Auburn, but will be moving to the Undercover Flea Market in Oxford soon.  To purchase prior to then, please contact Linda at LSnyder@regroupbiz.com.

Price:  $28.00 for both.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Condition:  Seem to be missing something that may have made them shake and groove.  Otherwise, the young ladies themselves are in good shape.

Please forgive the lousy photography.

Primitive, Rustic Corner Shelves Made with Old Shutters

We have two of these very rustic, primitive corner shelves, each of which is about 6 feet high.  The backs are made of old shutters; one of the units was made with green shutters, the other with a natural brown stain.  These are very narrow…. only about 5-6″ on each side.

Please look at the photos carefully; these are definitely rustic and include knot holes and live edge type pieces.

The shelving units are presently located in Auburn, but will be moving to the Undercover Flea Market in Oxford soon.  To purchase prior to then, please contact Linda at LSnyder@regroupbiz.com.

Price:  $28.00 each or both for $48.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Condition:  Rustic, primitive.

Please forgive the lousy photography.

A Nice Sturdy Little Bookcase with Ribbon & Bow Design

This is a sweet but sturdy little bookcase… and could be perfect for a young girl.  It presently has a natural stain but could easily be redone in bright colors or pastels!

The bookcase is presently located in Auburn, but will be moving to the Undercover Flea Market in Oxford soon.  To purchase prior to then, please contact Linda at LSnyder@regroupbiz.com.

Price:  $48.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

3 Brass Pots (2 Hammered) – Great for Plants or What Have You!

Love these brass pots… if I hadn’t bought them at an auction for resale, I might have just bought them for myself!  The two larger ones are essentially identical hammered brass.  The slightly smaller one is plain.  All three have handles.

The pots are presently located in Auburn, but will be moving to the Undercover Flea Market in Oxford by 08/11/2019.  To purchase prior to then, please contact Linda at LSnyder@regroupbiz.com.

Price:  $19.50 each for the two larger hammered pots; $15.00 for the smaller one.  Or buy all 3 for $48.00.  Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course.

Condition:  Very good.
