SOLD! Antique Dome or Camel Back Trunk

trunk-antique trunk-antique-inside-showing-colors-close-up trunk-antique-front-with-damage

We pulled this trunk out of an old farmhouse in Harpswell. It’s a pretty cool piece that comes complete with the top sectioned shelf for shoes or boots, or hats, or whatever, that one expects of a trunk of this type.

Condition:  Good.  It has some minor damage and obvious wear & tear as the pictures show, but given its age (at least about 125 years old), it’s in pretty decent condition.

Dimensions: Coming soon.  About 2.5’H x 3’W.

Price:  $80.00.   (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)  The typical price of a dome top trunk is in the $100-$200 range, but this piece takes up a fair amount of room that I need for other inventory, so it’s being priced to sell!

Quick Details About Us:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on our prices… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
  • Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing).  If so, that reduced price will be posted.
  • Holding Items.  Sorry, not without payment.  We’ve been screwed on this more than once, and won’t do it any more.
  • Questions.  This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job.  This means I have very limited time to answer questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts.  So I may not have time to respond….

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
