Scale Model – River Queen Steamboat

026
This wonderful scale model of a steamboat got put aside for quite some time, but is now back on display at Heritage Collectibles!

I hadn’t realized how big these old riverboats could get, until a quick skim through Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steamboats_of_the_Mississippi) gave me an eye-opener.  Take a look at this picture from the Wiki article:

The Wiki caption reads:  “Saloon of Mississippi River Steamboat Princess” (Adrien Persac, 1861), showing elaborate interior of an antebellum Mississippi steamboat

Condition:  Very Good to Excellent.

Dimensions:  About 12″H x 24″L x 6″D.

Price:  $75.00.  Includes the glass case and lighting.  (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

NOTE:  With the exception of nearly 14,000 books, plus maps & music (sheet music & vinyl), most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford.  We are booth number 56.

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 2014!

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

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, 2001.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
