Antique Vanity with Two Drawers


This antique vanity is a sweet little piece.  We got it from someone who had had it passed down from her grandmother.

The drawers work fine without sticking.

Refinished, it would be stunning – or use it as is and soak in the sense of history it offers.

Condition:   Very good.  It definitely shows some sign of usage – after all it’s been around the block a few times.  There’s some damage to the paint shown in the pictures.

Dimensions:  About 32″ H x 3 1/2′ W x 18″ D.

Price:  $95.00.   (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)

Location: Den of Antiquities, 1399 Bridgton Road, Westbrook  ME.


Until about mid November, 2017:

189 Main Street, Lewiston ME.
For now, Heritage Collectibles and Heritage Books & Maps have been combined into one shop: Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps.  We’d love it if you would follow our blogs!  (The Books and Maps blog isn’t as active as the Heritage Collectibles one.)

After mid November, 2017:

5 Park Street, Lewiston ME.
I’m planning to reopen this space as Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera, which was my husband’s personal baby.  This small shop will carry specialized books, Maine & New England books, maps, ephemera and cool items.  Hours will likely be by appointment only, or as I have time to open.

This will also be the location of The (Grief) Warrior support groups.

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 and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The 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.)
