WW II Military Trunk / Foot Locker by Shwayder Brothers – Reduced!

 Shwayder WWII Trunk 001 Shwayder WWII Trunk 003

This is a fabulous WW II era army trunk in green made by Shwayder Bros, which was/is also the Samsonite luggage company.  Note the metal reinforcements on the corners and around all the edges.

Condition:  Given its age and use, the piece is in great shape. The inset is worn on the edges as one would expect from removing and replacing it, and there is definite wear on the inside of the trunk itself as well as scratches outside, but overall, this is in far better shape than any other we’ve seen.

Dimensions:  Approximately 32″W x 12″H x 16″D

Price:  Was $125.00.   Now just $50.00!  Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies.

NOTE:  With the exception of books, maps & music, most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford.  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 2104!


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 like crazy, 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 will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The Grief 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.)
