Okay, so we don’t have a bottle of rum in the shop (although there are days when it sounds like a BRILLIANT idea), but we did decide to replace our boring “Open” sign with something a lot more fun… take a look at our Jolly Roger!
Yes, we’re sort of celebrating Halloween with the old skull and crossbones (and will have pirate-themed giveaways for the kiddos on October 31st, so come on over!), but it means more to us than that… we’ve celebrated International Talk Like a Pirate Day for years and even got married on that day (September 19), and had a pirate-themed wedding reception. Take a look at our wedding cake:
Despite Talk Like a Pirate Day (and our anniversary) being several weeks ago, we don’t see why we can’t carry the theme forward to Halloween… after all, good old fashioned pirates and their loot could certainly be considered antiques, right?
Main Location: Heritage Collectibles at 189 Main Street, Lewiston ME 04240.
Hours: Usually 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Thursdays & Fridays, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturdays and occasionally 12:00 noon to 4:oo pm on Sundays. We’re also often open until 7:00 pm some Fridays (especially the last Friday of the month which is ArtWalk night from May-September).
And we try to be open Mondays & Tuesdays from 9:00 am-1:00 pm, although that’s a bit tougher for us.
Our hours vary depending on the demands of our day jobs (Linda is a social worker, and John is the post press supervisor at the local newspaper), whether we are exhibiting at a show (rare nowadays), or are attending an auction we just don’t want to miss! Your best bet is to call us first to make sure we’ll be there, or to make an appointment. We do try to post our hours each day on the shop’s door, and on this blog.

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned. Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
