This Stunning Chaise Lounge Is Just Meant for Comfort!

This chaise has gotten lots of attention over the past couple of years, but is still looking for its permanent home.  The main reason our customer have offered for not rushing it right into that special space in their living room, master bedroom, or wherever, is that it’s just too big.  Which is terribly sad because this lounge is so comfy and feels so delicious…

Stretching out or curling up on this stunning chaise lounge feels like lying in the lap of luxury!

Chaise “lounge” is actually a more popularized term for the original French chaise “longue”, which is a chair with an extended seat for stretching out the legs. Mirriam Webster says the term chaise lounge first came into use around 1906.

This chaise has the cosmetically – and structurally – wonderful feature of not being perfectly flat… the center is raised somewhat to give an added sense of comfort for one’s legs (you just want to settle in and never leave) as well as a more inviting visual appeal.

Condition:  Structurally it’s in great shape.  It does have a couple of cosmetic flaws, though.  The webbing underneath has been torn in places, and there’s an unexpected separation between the bed and the back of the lounge, which isn’t seen when the pillows are in place, and doesn’t seem to affect the solidity, structure – or comfort – of the lounge.

It’s that latter flaw, however, that has brought the price of this item down from  the $400.00 we’d initially planned to price it at, to an amazingly low $175.00! (We’re told the piece originally was on the market for $1000.00!)

Dimensions:  Needs to be measured but is approximately 6’L by 2.5’W.

Price:  $175.00!   Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies.

NOTE:  With the exception of books, maps & music, much of our antique and other inventory can now be found at one of the great antique shops or flea markets listed here:

(We’ve recently reduced the number of other locations from 5 to just 2 for the time being; getting to all of the other shops in addition to our full-time social work job was just a bit much for me.)  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. 

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.  Our “Open” flag should be out, too – or perhaps Johnny’s favorite black & white pirate flag!  Just knock on the industrial looking door; we’re glad to see you!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past four 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, 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.)
