We picked up this wonderful piece of WWII military/folk art at an auction in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, we have no history on it, but it clearly was meaningful to someone. Perhaps it would be a great gift to a former serviceman from that era?
Dimensions: about 32″W x 25″H
Price: $20.00. Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies.
Location: This item can be found at our booth (#56) at the Den of Antiquities, 1399 Bridgton Road, Westbrook ME.
All profits from the sales of our inventory (after expenses, of course!) support The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in center being developed. You can find information on The Grief Warrior Project at warrior-project dot org.
NOTE: With the exception of books, maps & music, most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at one of the great antique shops or flea markets listed here: https://heritagecollectiblesmaine.com/details-hours/
We hope you will enjoy our booths at those locations as you did our shop 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. You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”!
Just turn off Main Street in Lewiston onto Park Street and park in the first available parking spot. The 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 there.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past three+ years!
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.)
I’m afraid i don’t have an answer for you, but I will refer you to 2 friends of mine….. They know me from Pacific Paratrooper
