Although we love-love-love Maine in the fall, it does mean extra work for us at the shop because we have to clear out all the stale old inventory and get ready for the (don’t yell at me) upcoming holiday season.
That means we need space in the shop.
That means a garage sale or a lawn sale.
But since the shop doesn’t have either a garage or a lawn, we will have to do an ALLEY SALE!
Come visit us in the alley behind our building (on the Park Street side) on Saturday & Sunday, September 24 & 25 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and help us clear out the old merchandise! (We were going to do this over Labor Day weekend, but I recently had surgery and am still exhausted… it works out well because it will give us more time to organize inventory for the sale!)
We’ll have all sorts of
- dishes & sets of dishes,
- knick knacks,
- dozens of pocketbooks,
- salvage closet items including three table top lecterns and some small project furniture,
- 2 bicycles,
- 2 microwaves,
- some clothing,
- salt & pepper shakers,
- dolls & stuffed animals,
- paperbacks and religious books,
- some antiques,
- a wedding dress,
- golf clubs,
- a walking wheel (a spinning wheel but larger) – damaged
- a male mannequin / shirt form
- and other items available!
Some of the items are inventory from the shop that we’re a bit tired of; other items are from a recent church clean out. So there’ll be a mix.
Most items will be wicked cheap; there’ll be both a $2 and a $5 Fill A Bag section!
There should be plenty of parking on Park Street during these times.
More than likely, neither of our shops will be open (Heritage Collectibles, 189 Main Street and Heritage Books & Maps, 5 Park Street) during the ALLEY SALE, so we can focus on the items we have outside.
In case of rain (or if for some other reason the alley isn’t available)… we may have to hold the sale inside although I’m not yet sure how we could manage that. Will monitor the weather and let you know!
