SOLD! Nice Old Platform Footstool with Brown Cushion


I’ll bet there was a matching platform rocker once upon a time…but we don’t have it.

The footstool, however, is pretty nice and you can’t beat the price!

Note: Someone placed velcro on the wood and the cushion which could suggest to some people that the footstool isn’t necessarily vintage.  Velcro was invented in the 1950s, however, making it a good 65 years old (and therefore antique! if one goes by the accepted definition as being 50+ years old).   Or the velcro could have been added after manufacture.  In any event, it seems that this footstool is vintage, if not antique.

Condition:  Very good.

Dimensions: It’s typical footstool height and width… I’ll have to measure when I get to the shop next.

Price:  $15.00.   (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

Quick Details:

  • 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 respond to 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.
